Beneath even the enormous Humilis residential region, Despair is the hopeless terminus of humanity .
Mutants, escaped slaves and convicts, exiled gang-members and other dregs, populate this forsaken place.
Ignored by everyone above it, Despair is ruled by petty chiefs and minor warlords. Few citizens venture into this forbidding land, where the authority of the Adeptus Arbites never shines.
Despair is not so much a cityscape as a series of tunnels, overflowing with human waste, corpses, and industrial toxins. Millennia old ruins from a bygone era can be found everywhere, a testament to the never ending growth of Alba Regia.
