Emerald City Blue
Puyallup is another barrens, but for a different reason. When the Great Ghost Dance rebelled against the US government after the Awakening, the Pacific Northwest’s volcanoes erupted, letting everybody know who’s side the magic was on. The lava flow from Mt. Rainier devastated much of Puyallup, wiping out real estate and creating the vast lava plains that now cover the area.
Even today, Puyallup is subject to occasional tremors, geysers, and ashfalls from the still-active volcano. The district is some thousand square kilometers and home to half a million people, most of them SINless, living in the shadow of an active volcano that could erupt again any day, spilling tons of ash and rivers of molten fire across the area.
