Welcome to the Medical District
In the heart of the bustling city lies the Medical District, a place of both hope and despair. The district is home to the renowned Grand Medical Complex, a beacon of medical care and expertise. However, the Medical District also faces numerous challenges that test the resilience of its dedicated doctors and nurses.
The Doctors in Red, the brave and compassionate healers of the district, tirelessly attend to the sick and injured. Despite the overwhelming patient loads and limited resources, they remain steadfast in their mission to alleviate suffering and promote healing. The Doctors in Red are a symbol of hope in an otherwise harsh and unforgiving environment.
But not all is well within the Medical District. The recent and escalating presence of Bone Merchants, individuals who profit from the physical remains of others, casts a shadow over the district. These unscrupulous characters lurk around, seeking their next plunder. They prey upon the vulnerable and add to the distress of patients. The doctors, with their unwavering dedication, strive to keep the Bone Merchants at bay and protect the well-being of their patients.
The Medical District is a place of contrasts. Some streets are clean and orderly, reflecting the diligent efforts of the medical staff. Yet, in other areas, the sick are abandoned on the streets, left to the care of the Doctors in Red. The district is marked by the constant struggle between hope and despair, resilience and vulnerability.
