Usually, these buildings are outside the cities, in villages or on the outskirts. However, some of them, like the Escravitude Cathedral, are inside the cities. These places are old and have icons and biblical representations all over the buildings. The devotees are a mix between the majoritarian religions, not just the catholic. However, the cross is used as the main symbol to be the most representative of faith. The buildings are old, big and solemn, made of stone and preserver all the dignity of the old days, without music or lights.
Devotees are great doctors, so players will found medical resources for them and for their bases.
The churches are made of stone, they echo. For the rest are quiet places.
SECRET CHURCHES · THE UPSIDE-DOWN CATHEDRALS
AS ABOVE SO BELOW
These constructions were initially private subway stations. After the happenings in 1963, the Devotees took refuge on those stations, transforming them into bunkers. The stations were designed as a reflection of the church or cathedral that was above, as a way to know in which one they were.
RECONVERTED CHURCHES · AFTER 1963
After the attacks in 1963 all the churches and cathedrals was reconverted in some type of establishment, like:
- Universities (Jacob campus)
- Museums (Mission 15. Save What Is Important)
These areas preserve the dignity of the old buildings adding all the cyber components, lots of music, and light.
RECONVERTED CHURCHES · TRADE CITIES · BI83
Trade Cities are opulent, and luxury areas build by the governments to calm the population in the face of the proximity of the Energetic Crisis and the happenings with the Devotees. Lots of theses leisure cities were made in the old cathedrals, like BI83. The common characteristic of all the cities is that the main theme for them is minerals, like Bismuth in BI83. The names came from the periodic table, and the cathedrals are the center of the city as a mock to the Devotees. Nothing is illegal. Drugs, alcohol, or sex is just part of what the citizens can buy. Jacob says in the novel that “these cities are so absurdly “luxurious” that even the prostitutes have lights in their nipples”.
