The population of Old City lives on the west of the Toquaho Mountains in the shore of the Ojonan Bay and is connected to the cities of Peninsula and Delta City by road. Old City, as well as the entire region, has experienced a significant growth in the past decades, changing dramatically its ancient landscape. The ojonan people have inhabited the region of Old City for more then 300 years, but the connection with the outer world only happened recently, circa 200 years ago, with the arrival of the deltese people.
Old City has a cold climate due to its latitude, but the proximity to the ocean makes it more temperate during the summers.
