Culture and Customs of New Foundry
New Foundry is an industrial city, and elements of that nature make it into all parts of everyday life. For example, New Foundry cuisine is known – or perhaps infamous – for its ubiquitous addition of soot and ash.
But industrialisation has brought with it technology as well, not just soot. Instead of being a city covered in pollution from the factories, the Street Cleaner Guild – armed with advanced technology to help them do their job – works to keep New Foundry the cleanest city in Braided Shore.
For many, life in New Foundry revolves around work and production. To work efficiently, one needs breaks. In New Foundry, there is a break called ‘thika’ which happens once every day for dayworkers, and once every night for nightworkers.
