Recursa was a small mining town on Penolpass until the recent discovery of vast resources in the nearby mountains. Almost immediately after, the city grew rapidly in an uncontrolled manner. A large portion of the city is dedicated to the industrial nature of the nearby area. Refineries, smoke stacks, and warehouses line the eastern side of the city – the side closest to the mines nearby. The west side of the city is walled, and holds a massive shrine.
Recursa is host to one of the largest Adeptus Mechanicus shrines on the planet. The shrine was constructed in order to appease the machine spirits as they arrived on Penolpass. Despite the shrine’s eventual (partial) destruction, techpriests can be found in fairly large numbers in the city.
Since the discovery of the resources, Recursa has grown outward to the south from the industrial east side. As a result of this explosive expansion, only a small portion of the housing is organized. Most of it consists of slums that developed as people migrated for employment. Crime has become rampant in these parts of the city, but the local law enforcement does its best to keep it under control. Many, however, question how efficient they have been.
