Welcome to the City of New Blockston, a Canadian city with New England influences, started in June 2021! Located on the shore of Lake Naicouche and along the banks of the Mons River, New Blockston is a blossoming city in its prime. Explore the Harbourfront District and Old Town near the lake, or head west towards the Mons to explore the dense Financial District and the historic Centre City! On your way, grab some knowledge at the University of New Blockston Newport Campus, or get some shopping in at the Newport Centre. In the Financial District, check out the FirstBank Plaza, New Blockston Imperial Bank Tower, or the many other furnished skyscrapers for you to explore! Catch a game and cheer on your favourite teams at the FirstBank Arena or Lumberjacks Stadium. If you choose to stay by the lakefront, swim with the fishes at the city aquarium, have a fun day at the Hampshire Fairgrounds, or bask in the glory of St. Joseph's Cathedral. Go shopping at the Church St. Marketplace, or at the historic Old Town Market; enjoy your stay at the grand Royal York Hotel, the scenic Harbour Castle, or the luxurious Diplomat hotel! No matter what you decide to do, get around on the New Blockston Transit Authority's System of Subways, LRTs, and Streetcars, and take the commuter rail from Union Station. If you're in a hurry, you can also look for teleportation stores that will teleport you into the central teleportation hub at the corner of Lexington and 6th. From there, you'll be able to teleport to any other teleportation store!
