Originally developed as the largely-residential Faubourg Ste. Marie in the late 18th century, the modern Central Business District is today a dynamic, mixed-use neighborhood, the home of professional offices in skyscrapers, specialty and neighborhood retail stores, numerous restaurants and clubs, and thousands of residents inhabiting restored, historic commercial and industrial buildings.

The French Quarter is the oldest section of the city of New Orleans. Most of the extant historical buildings were constructed in either the late 18th century, during the city's period of Spanish rule, or during the first half of the 19th century. The neighborhood contains many restaurants, ranging from formal to casual, patronized by both visitors and locals.

Iberville was once a low-income housing project. It is located in the 6th ward of downtown New Orleans, on the former site of the Storyville Red Light District. The area has recently been redeveloped, but is still considered a low-income neighborhood, though it does boast a lower crime rate than any other low-income part of the city.

The mostly working-class neighborhood was, as the name implies, originally settled largely by immigrants from Ireland in the early 19th century. However, early on the area also had people of other ethnicities, including German, Italian, and African American, living nearby each other. The origin of the name is obscure. However, one school of thought says that the Irish "channeled" into the area, while another says that rain would settle into the streets of this predominately Irish neighborhood at the time.

The Garden District is a dynamic community grounded in a strong sense of tradition. Some of its homes are still known by the names of the families that built them over a century ago, and official flags designating Mardi Gras Royalty are a common sight here during Carnival season. Walk down Magazine Street, the neighborhood’s commercial center, and feel the energy as antique shops give way to contemporary design studios, offbeat clothing stores, restaurants, and much more. Visitors can even find an old-world barbershop, operated by Irish barber Aidan Gill, who offers Guinness and whiskey with his hot towel shaves.

The Lower Garden District is often confused with its more famous neighbor, the Upper Garden District, but it has a unique, eclectic flavor all its own. Centered around Coliseum Square, the area is one of graceful vistas and curving streets, replete with classical names like Dryades, Melpomene, and Terpsichore. Indeed, Lee Circle, originally named Tivoli Circle, was envisioned as an anchor for the nine streets that extend from it, all named after the nine muses. The houses here actually predate those of the Garden District proper, since they were built in the early years of the 19th century during the city's upriver expansion from the French Quarter. Since the area is still in the process of being revitalized, many magnificent homes can be purchased here at reasonable prices, especially for those willing to invest a little "sweat equity."

The offbeat Marigny district is known for its Cajun bistros, bohemian bars and jazz clubs, especially along Frenchmen Street. Sidewalk musicians and brass bands add a block party vibe to the nighttime Frenchmen Art Market, which sells local artwork and handicrafts. Quieter spots include Washington Square where the lawns are shaded by old oak trees.

Mid-City is a generally local, middle-class neighborhood in that it contains fewer tourist destinations than other parts of the city. Restaurants and bars rely heavily on local clientele, giving the area a quirky local flavor. Tulane Avenue in particular shows some remnants of the area's industrial past. However, more characteristic of Mid-City today are the many shotgun houses and larger houses that make up most of this primarily residential neighborhood.

Central City was home to the Civil Rights Movement in 1960s, but fell into poverty blight and crime. It was one of the main areas effected by the Crack Epidemic and in 1994, when the city hit a historic peak of murders, Central City was among those neighborhoods that had the highest amount of crime. The overall crime rate in Central City is 93% higher than the national average.

Stretching from S. Claiborne Ave to the river, the Audubon area is home to some of the most beautiful streets in New Orleans. Filled with historic architecture, it’s bisected by St. Charles Avenue and the streetcar line. Home to both Tulane and Loyola universities, there’s a glut of student occupied (and expensive) property surrounding the universities, while adjacent streets are filled with some of the most premium real estate in the city. Audubon is also known as the University area of Uptown New Orleans.

Kenner is the sixth-largest city in the Louisiana. It is the largest city in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana's second-most populous parish, and a suburb of New Orleans. Originally inhabited by the Tchoupitoulas Indians, the area along the Mississippi River was the first land in the New Orleans Metropolitan Area on which Europeans set foot in 1682. In 1982, Pan Am Flight 759 crashed in a residential area of Kenner when a microburst forced it down. Eight people on the ground were killed, as were all one hundred and forty-five people on the aircraft. Six houses were completely destroyed and five more substantially damaged.

One story states that Westwego was so named because it was a major crossing point on the Mississippi river during the great westward movement of the late 19th century. When travelers were asked their destination, they would often reply "west we go". The French first developed the area in 1719 when French Minister of State LeBlanc started a plantation and a port along the Mississippi River. The port became an important site in the history of the transatlantic slave trade. The estate was later owned by the Zeringue family, who turned it into bustling sugar plantation, known as Seven Oaks. Planter Camille Zeringue built a canal at the plantation that played a prominent role in the community's history for decades.

Gretna was settled in 1836, originally as Mechanicsham, growing with a station on the Mississippi River for the Missouri Pacific Railroad, Texas and Pacific Railway, and Southern Pacific Railroad, with a ferry across the River to New Orleans. The famous spice-maker Zatarain's was founded here in 1889. The city and its police received considerable press coverage when, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, people who attempted to escape from New Orleans by walking over the Crescent City Connection bridge over the Mississippi River were turned back at gunpoint.

The majority of New Orleans nature is comprised of wetland and marshes. Hunting is a favorite pastime of many residents of NOLA. Bears, ducks, alligators, and deer are fair game with proper licensing, as this is viewed as a means of population control. Werewolves beware, as hunting is abundant in these areas, and the law tends to turn a blind eye.

Take a break from roleplaying and help us get to know you. Here you can start an IC/OOC game, create a graphics gallery or shop, test coding, and post absence notices. We encourage everybody to join in and get to know each other, but please only share what you're comfortable with, or don't, and let your characters speak for themselves.
