Type of Culture: A culture of vice, pleasure, and gambling, dominates, with shady deals in backrooms. There is a strong sense of personal honor present here as well, though this applies mostly to those who are citizens. Most people who live in Corazon are not citizens and can be expelled at anytime. Status as a citizen has to be earned, bought, or gifted by the council. Note that these expulsions are mainly used to remove dishonorable and troublesome individuals.

Places of Importance:

The Strip: A north to south line of gaudy casino's and bars, the rough equivalent to our Las Vegas. The strip leads right up to the the edge of the dominating two mountains. The Northern mountain is Montaña de Corazon, the southernmost, Montaña de Oro

The Jack of Spades: Casper's casino retreat at the very northern end of the strip, set partially into the mountain. Rumored to lead into a labyrinth and fortress inside the Mountain.

The Golden Roller: Mafia's lead casino and craps paradise. A clean and stylish place, but the atmosphere can be a bit ruthless and the management is is anything but nice.

Black Betty's: Casino, bordello, and hotel. The very best women and men can be had for a price here, legally. Independent from the mob, mainly due to Casper's personal friendship with the owner, a very beautiful brunette named… Betty. (lol) . Casper is a frequent visitor with guests.

The Docks: The southern butt end of the strip, a moderately sleazy casino where desperate characters wander around. A good place to lose someone or find a cheap floozy.

The Desert: To the southwest of the city there is a long dry strip of land created by the way the mountains block the weather. Don't dig very deep in the sand….

The Golden Hills: A rich area dominated by houses of the wealthy, and or citizens.
