Twilight City was once a bustling city of hundreds of thousands. It is now in ruins, with vampires and zombies eating residents at every turn. However, that hasn't stopped many Twilighters from continuing to enjoy the local flavor.
There is a rumor that Twilight City had a different name, but that the entire town was burned to the ground in the 1860s war. After the Great Fire, it was renamed Twilight.
Twilight City is divided into sixteen neighborhoods which are each about a square mile on the city map. It is situated along the Nel River to the south west, and near a famed Civil War battleground. It's 30 miles from the town of Gravesend and 45 miles from Denton.
Every ten years, when the census was taken, the numbers were heavily disputed. It is believed the city was about two-thirds European American and one-fifth African-American, with sizable communities of Indigenous Americans, South Americans, and Japanese, and a number of other immigrants.
The town had a very large Jewish community, and there are fourteen churches and fourteen synagogues remaining, though a couple of those synagogues had been converted into places of worship for the growing Unitarian Universalists. There was a small community of Muslims, mostly African-Americans and Palestinian-Americans, in the east side, and small communities of Buddhists, Wiccans, and people of other religions.
Twilight city had a Mayor and a city council of fifteen, though because some neighborhoods rarely had anyone to run for the position, many were appointed by the Mayor. Soon before the outbreaks, some local politicians were mired in scandals for accepting gifts from a mysterious science research and development corporation.
The city had an inordinately large number of police, as can be seen by the large number that have survived.
The town was home to a dozen public primary and secondary schools, and some private parochial schools operated out of area places of worship. Though there was not a single college or university in the sixteen neighborhoods of the outbreak, there were some community colleges and a private university in suburbs nearby.
