Central Elsewhere is divided into four quarters: the Gothic Quarter, Sanguine Quarter, Wretch’s Quarter, and Hunter’s Quarter. Each autumn on the night of the Hunter’s Moon, the denizens of these quarters form long lines, and holding lanterns and candles march to the small cobblestone park at the center of the city. For this occasion, the park’s large circular pool is drained and given a light coating of animal fat. The crowd casts their lights in, forming a blazing facsimile of the moon above. They dance in concentric rings as they pray for a gentle winter. This dance brings the four quarters together briefly. For the rest of the year they remain starkly divided by wealth, manner, and form.
