The Parliament of Hours
Brumaire is one of the districts of Montmarais, located in the eastern part of the city.
Prior to industrialisation, Brumaire was nothing more than a largely barren field between the city of Montmarais proper, and the Fens. However, on the run up to A600, the city expanded, and it quickly became one of the largest and most heavily industrialised areas in the Est districts, and in all of Montmarais—during the industrialisation boom, hundreds of factories, workshops, textile mills, and similar industries sprouted up – the huge amounts of smoke mixing with the mist and fog natural to the area resulted in a thick blanket of smog, which gave the district its name. Although the industrialisation dissipated quickly, there are still many hundreds of factories and mills still open and active throughout the area.
Most of Brumaire is made up of heavy industry, either active or inactive, but there are businesses of all kinds spread throughout the district – it is a largely self-supporting district made up of residential zones spread between commercial areas from all three sectors of work.
Brumaire is controlled by the Institute of the Smoke Cage, a largely secretive guild. Rumours are abound that trespass can equate to death, but more often than not the trespass is ignored. Their principal holding is unknown.
