Beneath Old Town is an extensive complex of underground tunnels that provide access to the old mines under the town. The tunnels have become a shelter for the homeless in Old Town. Interconnected with the mining tunnels is a network of self-sustaining bunkers. The bunkers were built by the Company during the terraforming of Westerley to guard against the disasters they encountered while trying to terraform Arkyn. Now, they are mostly forgotten by the Company and the city's inhabitants.
Old Town was bombed by the Company in response to an attack on the Nine in the Ancestral Hall on Qresh. A session of the Nine had been called to decide on revoking the Seventh Generation Accord due to the events of the Leith Bazaar Massacre. After the bombing Old Town the Company surrounded the city with a barrier, much like they did with Sugar Point.
