Port Loren is believed to be the earliest colony founded on Gran Quivera. This sprawling capital city is home to the United Planetary Federation, the Office of the Prime Minister, the headquarters of PGC, Galactic Task Force, Inc. and Star Law as well as many other corporations and government offices.

Port Loren is often cited as "The Center of the Galaxy" although this is hardly true. The city is so vast that over one third of the planet's heavy population lives within it.

Downtown[edit | edit source]

The map shows the downtown area of Port Loren. Areas to the east, west and south of the map are residential. The spaceport is to the north. (see Spaceport below) Each square on the map is 5 meters across.

Most large buildings (the Government Building, Pan-Galactic Corporation headquarters, the Medical Complex, etc.) extend several stories below the ground as well as two or three stories above the ground. Vehicles can access underground parking areas through entrance ramps and elevators (noted as IN or OUT in the map). Pedestrian walkways connect some buildings, and cross above the roads. The monorail is built above the buildings and walkways.

Although there are many types of vehicles on the road, the most common on Port Loren are hover cars. To help control the turning of hover vehicles at intersections, magnetic field generators built into the roads automatically reduce the speed of approaching vehicles to around 40kmph.

The Monorail[edit | edit source]

One of Port Loren's many monorail terminals

The monorail is the fastest way to travel long distances in the city. To get on the monorail, a rider takes a lift to the terminal and waits for a car to arrive. There are two tracks on each railway, both going in opposite directions. Monorail cars travel at 40-60kmph. Each car can hold up to six passengers. A rider wishing to shop or to travel in the opposite directions must wait for the car to stop at the text terminal to leave or wait for another car to arrive.

Riding the monorail costs 1 credit per day, and the rider can ride the monorail as many times as he wants that day. An ID Card is required to board the monorail.
