Central City Gazette

That was Then, This is in the Know
Established 1856

Something’s always happening in Central City. Beginning when Walleye Pondere broke ground on his trading post in the early nineteenth century, through industrialization, prohibition, the Jazz Age, the gang war of the late seventies brought Tran Van Kahn to power, and extending into the future, the city continuously changes. The denizens of Central City struggle to make ends meet, endeavor to develop meaning in their lives, and wrestle with their desires, values, and expectations.

Nothing in Central City is ever as it seems, and nothing remains the same.

As you read the stories about Central City’s underworld, thumb through the Gazette to learn more about the origins of the city, the past patterns of change and development, and the historical characters whose actions paved the way for the likes of Vincent Bayonne and Kane Kulpa.
