Here is everything you will need to know if you want to write a Tales of Eve story.

1. Arriving.

New arrivals to Eve are naturally dead people, newly dead people. Upon dying the new arrival will awaken inside a small square white room. The person's body will appear as if it were made of shadows. The new arrival is greeted by one of several greeters employed by the city to greet the dead and to make sure that they are in fact who was supposed to die.

While in the room the new arrival is given their "Item" which can be any item with, typically, a special attribute to it. These can range from infinite capacity bags, or "helpful" books. Anything really, so get creative.

The New Arrival exits the white room through a door which he then walks through and appears leaving though a random doorway anywhere in Eve.

2. The City.

Eve is a large, round city, with 6 districts. The whole city is a mixture of various architectures. Anything from 15th Century Venetian to modern day. It's a strange place. The city has an underground section beneath it. This is The Underground, also referred to as The Under, or Underground Town. The city has a lot of canals and walkways above the normal streets and most streets are cobblestone. There are also a lot of food stalls and stands. Stalls being like the kind of thing you find at a food court.

3. Districts.

There are 6. Each separated by medium sized to large walls.

Waytown in the east. The largest and most populated district. Waytown is home to all of the Governmental Buildings and the G.B. Tower. As well as the City Hall and Mayor's Office. The main Royal Gralle Guard Station is located in Waytown and is where any aspiring guards go to join the force.

Neway, In the south is the third largest district. It is a tightly packed network of narrow streets and tall buildings. This district is full of bars and house parties. It is a much more relaxed district than any other and is full of those who just want to relax in the afterlife and those who want to party and get drunk.

Firstway in the South West is the second largest. It is a huge garbage dump. Piles of garbage sit within it's walls. The district also has a few shanty towns inside it. But mostly garbage, although no one is sure how, or what brings the garbage there.

The Battlefield, in the West. Just like it's name implies this district is one huge Battlefield. The Battle sits on top of the old ruins of the original city, and is the only place where a citizen can still die for good. The war was originally waged between the original citizens, demons and Angels, but all three have long since forgotten the original cause for the war.

Keywall, in the North. The only district which none can enter freely. This district is only for the extremely rich or for Angels. The District is blocked by both a wall and barrier that none can see through. Not many know what Keywall even looks like.

And lastly, The Underground. The Under as it is commonly called is a network of tunnels, corridors and canals underneath all of Eve. The Corridors are filled with tiles of blue, and canals run all through out. In the center is a large plaza hanging above a massive waterway underneath the Under where all of the water from Eve goes. There are several entry ways located all over Eve which are very similar to Subway entrances, just the entryways. There are also various "Skylights" Which open up into the streets of Eve. Many risky people jump down these and into the canals below.

4.Royal Gralle Guards.

The Royal Gralle Guards are the official police force of Eve. They are a well trained and armed police force. They are the only people in Eve that are given access to any sort of Vehicle. The Gralle Guards patrol the skies in Eve in City Patrollers, which are flying platforms with jets and mounted machine guns.

5. G.B. Tower.

A large tower stretching high up into the sky found in the center of the city. The tower is estimated to be five thousand stories tall. Every 10 floors the architecture of the tower changes. Most citizens of Eve find it ugly. Even more have no idea what it's purpose is. Some say that The Controller, a mysterious man who controls everything in Eve lives at the top. These people are probably crazy.

6. Jobs.

Most Jobs that exist down on earth exist in Eve. Except for mailmen, there is only one mailman in Eve. There are also a lot of criminal families in Eve who sell drugs and run illegal gambling rings and other such illegal things. So a common job in Eve, in fact the most common is Mercenary. Guns for hire are all around Eve. These often work out of Merc Cores, which are groups of Mercenaries usually fronted by a business and run by a Merc Boss. A couple Merc Cores in Eve are Hit and Miss and Black Flag.

7. Crimes.

There aren't a whole lot of things that are considered fully illegal in Eve. People are allowed to own weapons and carry them around with them in the streets. Sword fights are not often broken up by the police and gun fights must be very out of hand to get the Guards attention, as everyone here can't die, due to being dead already.

Stealing is illegal and so are a few narcotics which are made in Eve. Any Earthbound drugs are legal. Gambling, oddly enough is almost completely illegal.

8. Dying and Doctors.

When someone in Eve dies, they are only dead for as long as it takes for a Doctor to find them. Doctor's are people in Eve who have the power to revive or heal citizens. A Doctor's power is the only one that can be given. You can sign up to be a Doctor for the city and receive a salary or become a unlicensed Doctor and work on "Commission".

9. Powers.

Everyone in Eve is given a special power. This can be anything. From generic superpowers to seemingly useless things. As long as it wasn't possible on Earth, then it is a power. So don't be afraid to get creative or just straight up weird.

10.Transportation.

Eve has yet to receive any kind of public transportation or private. Cars are completely outlawed and the only transport are the City Patrollers used by the Royal Gralle. Although some rebellious inventors attempt to manufacture their own transports. These are usually almost immediately confiscated by the Gralle and destroyed.

11.Oblivion.

Oblivion is the name given to the place that one goes when he is killed in the afterlife. Most citizens are only there for a few moments until revived by a Doctor. But in the Battlefield when you die, you go to Oblivion. And there are certain items which can forever kill a citizen, most of these are in the hands of Angels.

12. Currency.

The currency of Eve is Werks and look like small coins which weigh nothing. They vary in colour to determine value. Silver, 5. Gold, 10. Blue, 20. Purple, 50. Black 100.

13.Neko

Neko are extactly as the name implies. They are very much like normal people except they have Cat ears and tails, as well as some other cat like traits. They are the only known "Native" race of Eve. No one knows where the came from or why they are here. Many think they are a failed attempt at making people that were left in the area that Eve is in, but never used to be in. They are the only things that can leave the walls of Eve and walk the fields outside. They have their own language and cooking. No one knows where they get the meat.

14. Outside the City.

Outside the walls of Eve is a large and seemingly endless field of grass. No one in the city aside from the Neko knows what lies beyond it. It is rumored that the original land of the Neko is there. Along with a whole Neko city and animals and other such things. None of the Eve citizens really know what is oustide because the Neko are tight lipped about it. When anyone leaves the city and is not a Neko they are quickly surrounded by light and then find themselves back inside Eve's walls.

15. Echoes.

An Echoe is a device which 90% of all citizens own. It is very similar to a smartphone of Earth but for more advance. Echoes can be used as phones, music players, walkie talkies, cameras, gps, book reader, journal, drawing tablet, and pretty much anything else. They are about the size of a standard smartphone and are completely black with a full side being a display. Instead of numbers one only has to say the full name of anyone they are trying to call. Echoes also contain a catalog of every song in the current history of time.

16. Technology.

While Tv's technically exist inside Eve, they are not abundant. There are also no computers, as there is no internet.

17. The Messenger.

Aside from stock deliveries to stores and restaurants, The Messenger is the only person who delivers any mail in Eve. Packages can be sent through him, though most people use Mercenaries. The Messenger knows where every single citizen in Eve is at any given time, he is also inhumanely fast. He spends every moment of his afterlife dashing around delivering things to people. Some speculate he was never even alive.

18. Children of Eve.

In Eve it is possible to have children. These children age till the day they are first killed and then stop. Children of Eve are usually very strange people as they have never known what "Normal" life is like. Gun Forge is a child of Eve.

19. Alternate Names.

Earth is commonly refereed to ask Midgard by the people of Eve. Heaven and Hell are refereed to as Eden and Chaos.

20. Angels and Demons.

Finally. Eve his also home to several Demons and Angels. It is recommended that you excercise caution with dealing with both. Demons though are more laid back than Angels, though are more violent when roused. Angel are Elitist for the most part and hold a rather large dislike of people and are quick to "punish" people.

There is pretty much everything you need to know about Eve. if you still have any questions about Eve after reading this, ask.

So now, go Write a story. Have fun with it. Don't be afraid to make things up for the city as long as they don't contradict something already in the city.
