As of 04/28/2022 (User:Bzero), New Harmonex is
New Harmonex is a neutral city, located in the neutral territories of Cybertron. While New Harmonex welcomes members of all factions, the fact that the city's administration and defense are run by the Autobots has drawn what some feel is justified criticism of its pledge of neutrality. Despite reassurances by Starlock and others that the pledge will be maintained, some still fear the city may become a target for Decepticon agitation.
There is still lingering resentment towards the sealing of Harmonex and the construction of New Harmonex, due to Optimus Prime's decision to build a new city as way of wiping the slate clean. This was seen by Prime as a suitable compromise for the stale-mate between Starlock, Soundwave, Imager and the Dominicons after the sealing of Harmonex. Prime's reasoning was that New Harmonex would provide a neutral meeting place for the peace movement that had begun in Harmonex and been derailed by the old city's sealing. While the decision was accepted, it was not received well at all.
2020 - 2021:
New Harmonex was a project started by Optimus Prime in March of 2020. It was met with a large amount of backlash and criticism, which stalled city's planning and construction for several months. A large measure of the ill-feeling stemmed from decision by Imager and Illarion to seal Harmonex, despite objections from the Autobots (represented by Starlock) and a lack of input from the Decepticons (represented by Soundwave).
After regrouping and reconsidering her involvement, Starlock took up work on New Harmonex, with the help of Huffer's construction team. While also restoring the city's infrastructure, Starlock also began the difficult work of rebuilding the peace movement that had begun in Harmonex, reaching out to outside factions such as Neutrals and Destrons as well as the small number of Decepticons and Autobots who still believed in the possibility of peace.
With help from the Harmonexian Crosswise, and Vector Sigma, Starlock and Dawnfire traveled to the Crystal Islands to ask, and gain the help of Krystallos in creating, and growing new singing crystals. It took some coaxing, but they got him to agree and return to the mainland to help in building New Harmonex.
Starlock, Krystallos, and the unlikely traveling companion of Ghost, would be lead down by Dust Devil once more to visit Vector Sigma to ask questions, and would be directed to an energon spring under the city to help in the new crystals growth, as well as where to locate needed crystal seeds.. However upon getting to the seeds location, they where met with the Venerable One's, which give the group the seeds, but also a set of warning prophecy's that end up giving Starlock a new sense of purpose, and begin to put her all into the city.
As of March 2021, New Harmonex's singing crystals have grown to the sizes of small Cybertronian buildings while singing a new song, much of the planning is complete, with a small, but growing population of fractioned, and factionless, with the peace movement, growing with it once more. Chief Justice Tyrest has also taken up residence in the city, wishing to use it as a neutral ground for the proper prosecution of justice.
Places of Interest
Heart of Harmonex
Passed the gates that are styled like harps, stands the Heart of Harmonex. The buildings around are tall, with smooth and sharp geometric architecture like crystals themselves. The colors of their metal ranging from cyan blues, to dark durasteel blue to obsidian and purple.
This wide open city center where the government buildings of New Harmonex are meant to sit... In the center of the road is a small part with a fountain with an open flower bed. Crystalline trees have also been planted around. To the west is the Symphonic District, where shops, bars, theaters, a market, and even an arena are meant to be. To the east is the Crescendo District, where all of New Harmonex industrial facilities sit, be it the warehouses, trade guilds, filming studios, processing plants, docking bays for trad ships, are meant to be located. To the north is where most residential, schools, and even studios have been set up. The Soft sound of music has started to fill the air, while not the same as Harmonex of past.. The New Singing crystals, that are the sizes of small buildings now, sing their own song of Harmony.
On the Outside Tranquillo Hospital on the outside appears as one would expect as a modern hospital to look like, a sleek and sharp design that appears mostly crystalline, with a gradient accent of obsidian, purple and dark blue.
The building is only a couple stories high, and looks much smaller, but those whom have been inside know this is deceptive as the building goes down, not up. Singing crystals adorn the design of the building as they grow up the sides of the building with mostly tree flora, but the entrance areas canopy over hang has a number of flowers planted in small garden areas near it. The front door, and emergency room entrances are large, and generally look to be designed for those with emergency-vehicle alt-modes, but they appear to also be designed for those whom are generally larger, and to aid those of larger size. A crystalline fountain sits a number of feet outside the building with a sign with the address and name of the hospital engraved into it. On the inside the building is what one expects of a hospital, pristine, and sterilized clean to the point of smelling like cleaning chemicals with accents of obsidian and crystal used through out the environment for furniture, with a mix of fake and real plants. However it appears that the building goes mainly down instead of up. Access being granted by a series of large elevators that go both up and down. A number of Patients' Rooms down below, but above as well, in which friends and family can visit recovering patients, as well as Surgical Suits, and Other Specialty rooms, such as one for CR Chamber Recovery, Cafeteria, a Meeting Hall for doctors and students that can be converted into a class room, as well as a floor above for Offices. Located on the main floor is a Free Clinic that medics, interns and doctors can volunteer at.
Pavilion of Peace
The Pavilion of Peace is a large, round pavilion made of largely obsidian metal, and crystalline walls, the singing crystals grow around it, and its large circular opening that allows the public and its visitors in, and out.
At the top of the ceiling is a large open hole. Its purpose is to allow the top of the large tree statue with all its crystalline leaves, each of which have a name of those who helped in building, and rebuilding New Harmonex, and Harmonex, out into the city and give the large hexagonal flower planter that sits inside the pavilion, sunlight... This Statue is known known as The Harmony Tree.
