Oceanside

Oceanside was one of Sunrise City’s nicer districts, kept presentable as the basis for tourism. It’s waterwalks and shoreline were lined by upscale restaurants and boutique stores that catered to those with fat, foreign bank accounts.

After the Bleedout, riots centered on this wealthy district, culminating in one of the most spectacular moments of chaos in those chaotic pre-wall days: the collapse of the Lithia Gateway Bridge. A mass exodus march had begun across this magnificent suspension bridge connecting the City’s port district to the mainland. Hundreds of thousands of citizens tried to flee Sunrise City on foot, but were trapped mid-span by strategically placed explosives on either end. They were stranded on the bridge for 5 days, with no place to turn. Many citizens attempted to leap to freedom, most of them dying upon watery impact. After the fifth day, support structures were detonated, plunging the entire central span - and all 98,000 refugees - into the harbor, and to their deaths. It is still unknown who is responsible for detonating these charges.

In the years since the Bleedout, The Mayor has made an effort to restore this district to its former glory, although the remains of the Gateway Bridge still haunt the horizon. It is primarily frequented by the TRENCHTON TRADING COMPANY and THE SONS OF LIBERTY.

Instances accessible from the Oceanside:
Sunrise Harbor 

This small island had once been a tourist spot with small theme restaurants and shops, but has since been converted almost completely into a shipping and receiving station. This city-owned storage complex remains a key location because of its proximity to the coast, and it’s role in keeping the city supplied.


Deckard Harbor 

The lower levels of Deckard Plaza had once been an open, thriving port district, but has since become a dense, desperate slum thriving in the shadows of the more afluent buildings that tower overhead.


McKenzie’s Sport Center 

This was once an active part of the city’s athletic center, near the Juniper Falls Amusement Park. In safer times, it was a place where much less deadly competitions drew families, politicians, and athletes from around the world. Named after the homegrown football legend, Avery MacKenzie, the Sports Center facilities were home to numerous sporting events. Indeed, because of the world-class quality of Center, there was talk of submitting a bid for the Olympic Games. This bid never materialized, however, due to The Bleedout.


Municipality Warehouse 

This is just one of many warehouse districts used by the Municipality and Scorpion Chamber to store stockpiles of resources. It regularly comes under Rogue attack and the defense of the facility often falls to the gangs that inhabit the city.


Olympia Mills (EAST) 

Olympia Mill and Lumberyard was an old-fashioned industrial production facility, churning out cords of wood by the thousands to be used in local artisan shops and construction projects. Despite advances in technology, this mill retained its older traditions and technology, which made it a favorite of purists in the pre-Bleedout era. Today, however, it is populated by Rogues and squatters who have managed to infiltrate the outer walls. Many believe the area to be rampant with contagious disease brought in by the unwashed outsiders.


X-Align / LXM Shipping 

This dockside facility was once managed by the mega-industrial corporation, X-Align Industries, but is now used almost exclusively by the Trenchton Trading Company. It is considered a source of unexplored wealth, as there are several thousand shipping containers which remain unopened
