Highburgh is a suburb that is focused on manufacturing, warehousing, shipping/logistics. It is also located on a large body of water or bay with significant shipping being done in the city. Residents are mostly blue collar, hard-working, but not terribly wealthy. All the most wealthy, the business owners, all have their residences in a single high-class neighbourhood: The Hill. These residents refer to the town and its residents as “Low Born” as a play on the town name. The town was originally founded to support a mine that has since been long exhausted. Current residents are mostly unaware, except in passing, of the numerous mine shafts that honeycomb the earth beneath the town.
Being a moderate-sized city, Highburgh is mostly overshadowed by Champion City. The metropolis was named after the super hero who saved it countless times. Being so well guarded, most of the petty thugs and low-level criminal elements have fled to suburbs like Highburgh. Although monumentally famous in his day, Champion has been seen less and less lately, as he moves into the “sunset” of his super hero career.
