Here are a few introducing pictures:
This is the other side of the city, off the gloss and bustling life of Bay City: The Slums of East Town. Hopelessness and unemployment rule this dangerous area. Bad investments and real estate speculations prevented the enhancement of the region. Meanwhile the old, disused freight railstation and abandoned industrial buildings was put in use again to create jobs - but only with minor success. Mayoral candidate Daniel Morrison plans to get East Town in property of the City council. He is criticized (Costs) and praised for that equally.
