New Mombasa = Mombasa *IMGs*

In Response To: Re: Artifact Sizing *Minor H3 Spoilers* (ick)


: 2. On using current city locations to determine distance.....Of course the
: game calles it "New Mombasa"....and there are no rules on where
: "NEW" mombassa is relative to present day Mombassa. Silly
: example? The distance of York from New York.

The Mombasa area is similar geographically to New York. The main part of the city is on an island, with urban sprawl extending onto the mainland. Nowadays, Mombasa island is your typical African town, with office buildings and hotels and such, while the outskirts are much more rundown, with shacks and huts and dirt roads. In Halo, the island is New Mombasa while the mainland is Old Mombasa. It's only called *New* Mombasa in-game because it's so radically different from today, what with the whole goes-into-space elevator thingy, and the levitating trains, and the massive skyscrapers.
