Places of Note

Jose Marti Park

District: Central
Neighborhood: Little Havana
Owned By: Codina Family

Spheres and Factions:

  • Werewolf
  • Wolfblooded

Hooks:

  • Tur
Mechanics
Open to all, thanks to being a public park.
Area of Peace
(−5 to any act of aggression [including mind influencing effects]) (+5 to resist Kuruth)
Description
Although technically in the territory claimed by the Codina Family, Jose Marti Park has served as the tur for the packs based in the city since Zenith LLC worked out an arrangement with the more established pack. While the crowds makes being in any form other than Hishu sporting (unless one feels the want to be on a leash as dogs are allowed in the park, at any rate) it serves as a solid meeting space for the city’s wolves.

The Visitor Center

District: Out of Town
Neighborhood: Everglades
Owned By: Swamp Runners

Spheres and Factions:

  • Werewolf

Hooks:

  • Tur
Mechanics
Werewolves and Wolfblooded ONLY, unless otherwise cleared by the Swamp Runners.
Area of Peace
(−5 to any act of aggression [including mind influencing effects]) (+5 to resist Kuruth)
Description
On the eastern edge of the Everglades stands a run down visitor center which rarely sees more than a few of the mundanes a week, if that many. It is here that the Swamp Runners have allowed to be used as a neutral place to meet that’s far enough from the core of their territory for their liking.

Kampong

District: South
Neighborhood: Coconut Grove
Owned By: The Fairchild Family

Spheres and Factions

  • Werewolf
  • Wolf-blooded
  • Fairchild Family

Hooks

Description
Today the Kampong’s living collections include tropical fruits including pomelo, 23 cultivars of avocado, and 65 varieties of mango, palms, flowering trees, ficus, aroids, and bamboo. This garden serves as the mainland campus for the NTBG. In addition to the diverse living collections which are the core of The Kampong there are living quarters for researchers and scientists as well as meeting facilities for larger groups. The site is also well configured for weddings and outdoor functions of all varieties.

Other locations on the grounds include:

  • The Fairchild-Sweeney House: Designed by architect Edward Clarence Dean and constructed in 1928 on the grounds of the Kampong, the house serves as a combination of Spanish and Southeast Asian influences. A later renovation incorporated more modern features and added a second floor over a portion of the home, resulting in an unusual blend of styles.
  • The Schokman Education Center: Designed by architect Max Strang and completed in 2007, the center serves as an outdoor pavilion incorporating oolitic limestone and exposed concrete.
  • The Scarborough Dormitory: A dormitory specifically designed to house visiting researchers and students built in 2006 to accommodate an increase in Botany studies from students from around the world. It is frequently in use, granting students the ability to study Kampong plant species day and night. The dormitory has 12 beds available with study and patio space on the ground floor.
  • The Barbour Cottage: Built in 1926 to house visiting dignitaries and people of influence at Dr. Fairchild’s invitation, the Barbour Cottage is often used today by visiting researchers, teachers and scientists.
  • The Sausage Tree Cottage: Built in 1964 to house family and friends of the family, it is used today to house teachers and scientists who are in town for conferences or to do short term research projects both on site and elsewhere.
  • The Explorer’s Cottage: Formerly the home of Curator David Jones, the cottage has been renovated and is well used by education groups, as well as multi-function space for students and business groups. While it is sometimes opened to the public, the Fairchild family normally only allows family to use it, painting the family gatherings as teacher conferences or the like. One section kept away from the public is the library that Dr. Fairchild began and others in the family have continued since documenting the trips he and his pack underwent and what they discovered there that was not meant for those not of the People to know.

Halissee Hall

District: South
Neighborhood: Coral Gables
Owned By: University of Miami

Spheres and Factions

  • Werewolf
  • Wolf-blooded
  • Sewell Family

Hooks

Description
The Sewell family’s house was one of Miami’s most prominent homes in the early 20th century. Halissee Hall was acquired by the University of Miami in 1932 and over the years the University of Miami School of Medicine and Jackson Memorial Hospital grew up around the former estate. In 1997, the Medical Faculty Association took the initiative to undertake a complete restoration of this National Historic Register structure. When completed, Halissee will be home to the School of Medicine’s Faculty Club and will host receptions, conferences and lectures – once again, entertaining men and women vital to the growth of Miami and South Florida.

It is known among the family that there is a series of tunnels under the University of Miami that allow the family access to their home on campus. Some say that both brothers had a hand in building it as a way to move around in emergencies. Only the Sewell family knows all the ways in and out of the tunnel system safely, however, although there have been incidents of curious students venturing into portions of the network.

Shadow

Central

Overtown

While never officially falling to the point of becoming a true Wound, portions of the neighborhood’s Shadow are dark places indeed. Fighting between the choirs for resources is fierce, and the presence of the blood-red kudzu vines that mark the touch of the Torch-Bearers’s ever-reaching totem serve as marks of caution for venturing spirit-walkers.

Little Haiti

The skies of the Shadow in Little Haiti are often overcast, marks of the potent storm spirit that the Pure pack known as the Tanpèt call their own. Even with the clouds overhead the spirits themselves are vibrant, reflections of the culture and customs of the people that make the neighborhood their home.

University of Miami

Organized chaos is a fine descriptor for the arrangement of choirs that call the Shadow around the university home, with the spirits of academia working alongside the reflections of athletic fervor, the emotional rises and falls of the student body, and the grounds themselves working in something akin to harmony. Notable spirits include the Opalescent Ibis, representing both the birds that live on campus and the school’s mascot, and the Archivist, an spider-like information spirit that maintains the network of knowledge that spans between the libraries on campus.
