Shadows of Taren
A commercial structure of vast proportions that juts into the Bay. Built by Goode Industries, The Jetty is a prototype arcology. Within its geodesic walls are apartments, restaurants, and a gigantic shopping mall (open to the public). Rent on the square footage within is quite expensive, however. A vast field of solar panels on the roof of the structure and an experimental ʺtide‐wheelʺ below help supplement the Jettyʹs power needs; there is an entire level dedicated to hydroponic farming research, and two levels of ʺindustrial parkʺ for manufacturing and research. It is a safe, secure, clean neighborhood, cared for by the watchful eyes of Goode Industries.
Officially, there is no crime on the Jetty; unofficially, the private security force does run a tight ship, with only minor shoplifting and purse‐snatching happening. But rumors persist that the biggest crimes are being covered up by their corporate masters.
