Mood painting for First Ward, a backwater, post-apocalyptic CITY OF HEROES zone drenched in magic. Continual attacks from the Praetorian Hamidon managed to undermine the city's foundations, sinking downtown and forcing the survivors to the fringes.
It's hard to miss the giant tentacle husks still clutching broken skyscrapers, the looming vortex, and the palpable sense of dread. And way in the distance, perched on a rocky cliff, you can just make out Mother of Mercy Hospital.
