The following is an excerpt from the book, City of Ruin, by Naria Heft. [Originally published five years ago.]

While some areas of Kurtow are entirely without electricity, others are still running on outdated Lurion power cells. As years go by, these cells become increasingly dangerous due to age and lack of proper maintenance. It’s believed that only a select few resourceful individuals have adopted alternate means of generating power, but these are reportedly found in the more rural areas of the megadistrict.
