- Ares Combat Arms Brawl Park – Old Fighting Island, with its rotting housing projects and collapsing shanty-towns is North America’s highest rated Urban Brawl location. Knight Errant is under strict instructions not to set foot on the island, so it’s a haven for fugitives, HMHVV-infected, neoanarchists, and anyone else who wants to live beyond KE’s boot. Oh, and the whole thing was a toxic chemical dump for eighty years before the city built public housing there. This ups the ante for Brawl matches, of course. Isn’t it fun when a ghoul colony finds itself in the middle of a play-off game? ACAB Park employs hundreds of technicians, security personnel, and vendors for its official events, and earns Ares Global Entertainment a healthy income from amateur and junior league dues.
- Urban Brawl Hall of Fame & Memorial(BrawlHalla) – Built strategically between the Airport, Downtown, and the Brawl Park, it’s an easy stop on the Ares Intelligent Monorail (AIM) system.
- Belle Island Fusion Park – Belle Island hosts a world-class golf course, the top-ranked
memorial park at the southern tip, Belle Island ParaConservatory, and the Greater Detroit Fusion Power facility (GDFP) which is one of the first fusion power plants in the world. A visitor center sits outside of the facility’s main wall, it’s mostly Ares propaganda, but there are some sweet-ass pictures of the main reactor.
- Coleman Young Space Center – Built on the old regional airport, CYSC is an absolute must-see. Launching space-planes daily, and serving semi-ballistic craft coming and going from the city, there’s plenty of amazing space tech to see first hand. They also have an education planetarium second to none, with the most advanced trideo & simsense displays showcasing views from the Sagan-Hawking Orbital Array Linked(SHOAL) Telescope and a Mission Room replica of Gagarin Station on Mars!
- Ford Arena – One of the most advanced Combat Biking arenas when it was built thrirty years ago, Ford Arena still hosts regular combat biking events along side neogladiators, but it’s probably better known as a concert & convention venue these days.
- Detroit Opera House – One of the oldest opera houses in UCAS, DOH has been retrofitted and renovated twice in my lifetime, and hosts the top-tier orchestral circuits and many other prestigious shows and theater companies.
- Unification Ice Arena – Home of the Detroit Red Wings, need I say more?
- Spirit of Detroit – This sculpture has been refurbished countless times over the decades, and has been in place for well over a century, my home town hero. Rumor has it the statue has spoken to people from time to time, but I’m not sure I buy that.
- Greektown – Anyone who visits Detroit has got to spend a night in Greektown. Venues, casinos, trid-lounges, clubs, you name it they’ve got it in Greektown, just watch your pockets.
- Unity Bridge – Built seven years ago, she’s a dandy to look at. Unity Bridge replaced the
damaged Ambassador bridge that eventually had to be decommissioned after the House of Windsor bombing.
- Downtown – Just cruise around, or take the AIM, and you’ll see a nationaly-recognized collection of 20th and even some 19th century architecture that’s damn gorgeous if you ask me.
- Spirit of Hope Church – MLK Jr Blvd/Grand River Ave – The birthplace of MOTOR, Spirit of Hope also built a memorial garden for those who died during the Night of Rage race riots of 2039, my Daddy included. MOTOR headquarters is just down the street in another beautiful old church across from Scripps Park.
- Hart Plaza – Plenty of beautiful views of the river, watching ships and boats pass and
enjoying overpriced drinks. You might even catch a glimpse of Don Genietti’s boys dropping some poor sonuvabitch into the river. Ares headquarters was located in Hart Plaza for most of Ol’ Nick’s reign, only moving into Renaissance Center after aquiring General Motors. It remains the headquarters for Stoner-Ares Munitions.
