"Thank you for flying Delta Airlines. We have just landed in Radisson. We hope that you've enjoyed the flight and we are looking forward to flying with you again."
Welcome to the city of Radisson! This city is just one of the many that comprise Avenois, the capital of Vatel. Located at the southern border at the confluence of the Kyle, Kyrye, and Ghant Rivers, Radisson has been enjoying progress for the past 50 years of its existence. Founded in the late 50's by Delaney Kirkman, Radisson has experienced fast growth despite suffering from a mild depression in 1996.
From Radisson Intercontinental Airport, we pass by the buildings that contain the many offices of different airlines that fly to RIA. Among them is the recently-resurrected Pan American Airlines thanks to the efforts of a valiant group of investors. Pan Am now calls RIA home.
Northeast of the airport lies Sauvignon, a small neighborhood that house some of Radisson's rich and famous.
Directly north of the airport is the Thygert Correctional Compound. Here, criminals are incarcerated and rehabilitated for release back in society instead of simply putting them in a cell to rot.
Thygert borders the Radisson Industry and Processing Zone, an expansive industrial area that spills out into neighboring cities.
Right beside the RIPZ, lies the narrow Riverbank District which houses the Metro Convention Center and Greenwood Stadium.
Moving away from the western border of Radisson and eastward across the Kyle River, we enter the Fairways District which is dominated by the Fairways Country Club and Resort.
Moving east from Fairways lies Academia, the university district. This is where Kerrigan University - one of the top institutes of higher learning in Vatel - is located. Academia isn't as wealthy as neighboring Fairways, but it has decent homes and businesses catering to students.
North of Fairways and Academia is Highpoint, the Central Business District. Towering above the streets are the tall buildings housing numerous offices, headquarters, businesses, and the like.
Right across the arch bridge from Highpoint is Hepburn. This district is still in the process of rehabilitation and redevelopment. Ironically, this was the first district to be founded. A massive fire broke out in 2000 that razed the entire area to the ground. Nothing was spared except for George's Hall and the old panopticon constructed for the regional fair.
So there you have it! The City of Radisson in all its glory! For a better perspective, here's a couple of bird's-eye view shots taken from an inbound Pan Am flight.
Thanks for stopping by Radisson! We hope to see you again!
