Zone/Region Question Thread
#1
Question 
Now that the wiki is being worked on and Zone entries are being written, I feel it's neccesary to have a thread for asking questions related to Zones and Regions on Morbit.
While this is unofficial and team members are not obligated to answer questions in this thread, this post will have links to both question and answer posts to make navigation more easy.

If you have a question about Zones, Regions, Climates, or Biomes, please do not hesitate to post here.

QUESTIONS ARCHIVE

TAVERNE

In Bluster, an aurora with "metallic" colours was mentioned, was this just a description of the lustre of the formation, or did it have other significance, especially given Wane and the Mothlies were known to have metallic blood?
Did it have any effect on the atmosphere, especially as it froze when the Zone died?


Answer by Skinstealer

Do Hearth's buildings extend into the bedrock of Hearth, and do they have any effect on the geology of the Zone?
Given the enormous population density, how does this affect the attraction Horrors have to populated areas, and weather patterns in areas bordering the zone?


Answer by Skinstealer

LUXSON CLUSTER

In Luxson, where do the Pinitelle boats go for shipbuilding and repairs that can't be done at sea? Do they have their own islands and territories for this and other purposes?

Answer by Skinstealer and ThreadLurkingComorant

PLAZA

What keeps Plaza from becoming a dead zone, now that their Greater Diety is gone? Is it something the Zone's residents maintain themselves, or is the High Deity of the region involved?

Answer by ThreadLurkingComorant


Is plaza like an island, or is it a zone in a larger region or something? We've only really seen the city, what's the geography of the place? does the city in crankshaft have a name?

MODICIUM

If the rains of Mode are corporeal, how do they deal with flooding and constant humidity caused by constant rains? Are there any breaks in the weather?

OCEAN/UNOCCUPIED ZONES

Are there any fauna or flora species which are native to the interior of Cage? Or are gremlins the only living thing inside those airplanes other than Turbine?

If there is non gremlin life, was it created by turbine or does most of that life originate from the seas around Cage?


Answer by Zenthis

How is the ocean structured, and what biomes and regions are there in it? What can you roughly expect from being around it?

Answer by Lucy

Given the heavy sugar content of Morbits oceans, would you be able to see a layering effect from increasing sugar content at depth like in syrup bottles

@victorianflorist  All non gremlin flora and fauna are from the surrounding ocean. This includes, (among other things) horrors, sugar barnacles, and in the cases or fully filled planes, fish. Sugar barnacles are a small life form found in many parts of the morbit ocean that attach themselves to a solid surface before collecting sugar from the water around them, causing it to crystalize on top of itself and whatever surface it has latched onto, storing it for later consumption.

Plaza control was handled actively by three gods. One passed away and was replaced by Mori who now does the heavy lifting, one went into hiding, and another is focused on ocean exploration and space travel.

this was definitely done intentionally as a reference to wane and mothlies' metallic blood, and was part of wane's design for the auroras- wane probably thought it was a Cool Look and a Cool Reference. frankly i don't know a whole lot about auroras, so i will look into that and probably grill lucy on it

there are some underground stories to buildings of hearth, though i can't imagine they go too deep due to Horror Troubles- not sure on geology, would need to do research. horrors are definitely attracted to hearth, but i'd imagine that the borders of hearth are pretty well protected from ones coming from outside the zone, and local horror vents are locked the fuck down as best as they can, whenever they find them. as for weather patterns, would need to do research to answer that. 

In Luxson, where do the Pinitelle boats go for shipbuilding and repairs that can't be done at sea? Do they have their own islands and territories for this and other purposes?

(answered with como's help)
pinitelles generally get their ships built and repaired at whatever ports they can- they're not really notorious in a lot of areas, and those that don't have terrible reputations can generally find a place to get a ship made or patched up.

@Shifter55 hope this helps with your oceanic inquiries.

hey, is plaza like an island, or is it a zone in a larger region or something? We've only really seen the city, what's the geography of the place? does the city in crankshaft have a name?
