Cybertron is reborn, and refugees that have fled to other worlds are returning, even amongst the dangers of the ongoing civil war. These are the major areas of Cybertron, although other, smaller bergs exist for brave souls interested in exploring the grid...
Iacon is an Autobot-controlled city-state, located near the north pole of Cybertron. It is also the location of the capital city of the same name. It is by far the largest and most well-defended Autobot settlement on Cybertron. It is home to the military command on Cybertron, as well as the center of Autobot culture. Even Autobots originally from other parts of Cybertron tend to call Iacon home. Most Autobot residents dwell in the Great Dome, although there are other locations in Iacon, including Nova Point.
Kaon is a Decepticon-controlled city-state in the southern hemisphere of Cybertron. It is the home of Megatron's Castle, and its capital is Kolkular. Kaon has been an important Decepticon holding since the beginning of the Great War, and with the destruction of Polyhex its importance has risen once more. Civilians who escaped Polyhex have started to settle in greater Kaon, and Decepticon Intelligence forces have established a base in Kolkular.
Harmonex is known as the Singing City on Cybertron, where it serves as a center for art and learning. It holds within it lithic crystals that sing in perfect harmonic frequency. With the rebirth of Cybertron, it has become a tensely-guarded neutral haven.
Nova Cronum is a philosophical haven and home to many theoretical research facilities. It borders Iacon and is the region housing the Thunderhead Pass. Unfortunately, the Autobots and the Decepticons have a tendency to blow it up. Thus, it longs for the day when all are one. Nova Cronum contains the Philosopher’s Club and Twin City, a center of arts and philosophy in its own right.
Sector 18 contains Tyrest, a Decepticon-controlled city-state that borders the remains of Kalis to the east. To the northeast is Iacon, in close enough striking distance to make Tyrest an important Decepticon holding – one of their only (along with Helex) major bases in Cybertron’s northern hemisphere. Located in Tyrest is the Jekka Amphitheatre, once home to the State Games. With the destruction of Polyhex, Tyrest temporarily became the new Decepticon headquarters on Cybertron, and the Jekka Amphitheatre was rebuilt to house the Decepticon army and fugitive civilians. Even after the move of DHQ to Tarn, Tyrest remains an important Decepticon property on Cybertron.
Helex was once the Decepticon capital and the seat of Megatron's empire, though he no longer spends much time there. As the former capital, it was situated well into Decepticon territory, not far from Stanix. The Power Base serves as their main headquarters, with Castle Decepticon serving as a secondary fort. While undeniably under the control of the Decepticons, the ruling Triumverate's laissez-faire attitude has allowed Autobots to live and work in Helex relatively unthreatened, at least until the Autobot attack on Castle Decepticon in 2015.
The Crystal City was famous for its elegance in construction, and the scientific minds that hail from it. Now, its ruins are a haven for criminals and scavengers based around its old docks and spaceport. The ruins of Crystal City are also the home of the dockside establishment Th' Bar, which while officially neutral has often been the home of many an off-duty Decepticon.
With war being the most secure factor in Cybertron's long history, one would almost forget "neutral" doesn't have to refer to the absence of an insignia. The Neutral Territories are called as they are because the domain serves as a free settlement zone and trading quadrant to the Cybertronian population. The area is bordered by Uraya, Altihex, Rust Sea and adjoins the Torus States.
Stanix is a region in equatorial Cybertron. One of the first areas conquered by the Decepticons, it remained isolated from the ensuing civil war up until the departure of the Ark. It contains the town of Yuss, and is covered by Fort Scyk. With Stanix captured early in the war and deep in Decepticon-held territory, Fort Scyk is far from the front and is seen as bit of a dumping ground for those stationed there. The garrison consists of both young and green Decepticons, as well as those the High Command would rather see out of the way.
Polyhex was once the primary home of the Decepticons. It contains both Darkmount, the former center of Cybertron's Decepticon Intelligence, and the former Decepticon Headquarters, which served as the primary base of operations for the Decepticons on Cybertron. Polyhex was also in charge of Cybertron's satellites, and home to the Cybertron network command hub. The Decepticons held Polyhex for eons, and in time they added such scenery as smelting pools and gladiatorial facilities. In 2015 Polyhex was transformed by Galvatron into New Polyhex, an alien city reminiscent of the surface of Unicron.
Praxus is one of Cybertron's city-states, located in the northern hemisphere. It borders the following city-states: Altihex, Iacon, Kalis, Tyger Pax, and Nova Cronum, making it one of the city-states on the Tri-Torus Loop. Praxus is Cybertron's technological and cultural center and occupies a prominent position in Cybertron's political arena. This tends to put the citizens at odds with the Decepticons, who seek to forcefully re-imagine Cybertronian society. For this reason, Praxus often is targeted during the war.
Protihex is one of Cybertron's many city-states and spans the Sector Six-Zero area. It neighbors Polyhex and Uraya, and is one of the city-states in the Tri-Torus Loop. Although not as well defended or populated as Iacon, it is at least nominally controlled and guarded by the Autobots. Aside from the damage done by the occasional skirmish, Protihex has come through the war thus far relatively well.
Uraya is another one of Cybertron's city-states. It is the largest of the Tri-Peninsular Torus States, and borders Protihex and the Neutral Territories. It’s an Autobot-leaning neutral territory. Although usually quiet, it has occasionally been used as a hunting ground by Predacons, and the neutrals have had to been defended by the Autobots on many occasions. The political consequences of the Decepticons’ attacks has been to drive the residents even more firmly towards the Autobot cause, and any Autobots in trouble would surely find aid among the residents of Uraya.
Tarn was one of Cybertron's many city-states before the advent of the Great War and was ruled by a military dictator named Shockwave. The Decepticons have recently moved their Cybertron headquarters there and are slowly rebuilding the city-state.
Once a burgeoning manufacturing area known for its custom regulators, Valvolux has seen some of the most violent fighting in the long and bitter wars. Its hollowed-out factories and shattered roadways display the scars of millenia of conflict. The Cybertronian Ministry of Energy and Nutrition lies in ruins, long ago picked clean by scavengers. With Cybertron witnessing a new reawakening, however, Valvolux is being rebuilt and is beginning to thrive once more.
