The above contains both actual and fictional locations in Washington, for player reference.

Further details on relevant settings are on the individual quadrant pages.

NB: The Capitol Building is truly the proper separator of the four quadrants in DC. However, for purposes of this representation, I have taken some liberties with the actual borders in order to break up the information into manageable sections. 

For our purposes, the section on Northeast encompasses landmarks a few blocks from the Capitol, Union Station and other such areas in the lower-numbered streets and lower-lettered cross streets, on up into proper Northeast. Included here are many Federal Gov't buildings and Chinatown as well. (Otherwise we would have 90% of this tour under Northwest and almost nothing anywhere else, which could confuse a non-native trying to envision the City.) I'm sort of using around 10th-14th Street NW as a divider but that is loosely interpreted.

Northwest is where the bulk of our RP scenes occur, as that is both an area of great wealth and great cultural activity, proportional to the rest of the City. This is Embassy Row, the Zoo, Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, numerous Universities, and lots of historic architecture. 

Southeast, sorry to say, is fairly simple to sum up for our purposes. It is where Anacostia is. Many warehoused areas, most of which are dirty and run down, though a few minor landmarks try their best to shine through, for example, the National Arboretum which is quite pretty. This is where the river feeder borders DC and Prince George's County, MD. RFK Stadium, 295, and so on, are in this quadrant. It is also the home of a fairly respected Goth/Industrial Club, Nation, and its fictional counterpart, Web of Night.

Southwest, due to the location of the Potomac River, seems really just a missing sliver on the bottom left of Washington, but much is crammed into that sliver. Arlington Cemetery, Georgetown, most of the major monuments that have come into play, are all down here. Also, the famous "steps" from the movie "The Exorcist", and the C&O Canal.
