Deadlands Noir: Sweet L.A.
Mazedge is the southern-most borough of Lost Angels. The cheaper northern neighborhoods are populated by hard-working but poor factory workers, domestic workers, and other manual or menial workers. To the south of the residential belt lie the factories themselves, typically built close to the edge of the higher Maze walls, allowing the by-products, waste, and effluent to be released directly into the churning waters of the Maze. Further southeast, where the sprawling conurbation begins to grow sparser and the factories give way to wasteland and dereliction, the scattered homesteads are instead occupied by prospectors. These hardy miners still work the deadly rock faces of the Maze channels. They are considered to be mostly crazy, their brains fried from excessive exposure to the elements and prolonged exposure to the weird effects of ghost rock.
