Martinaise is a location in Disco Elysium.
Background[edit | edit source]
A very small district tucked away near the Industrial Harbour. North of the 8/81 and Jamrock. Law and order was mostly absent, and the Union step-up to take charge of Martinaise. However, for two decades, Precinct 41 and Precinct 57 were trying to make the other Precinct take charge of the docks so they would not have to.
They didn't realize that within ten years Martinaise would become a gutted ghetto, scarred by the Antecentennial Revolution and half-burned down by the Coalition's artillery bombardment and subsequent landings. Martinaise's most prominent feature, a twelve story tenement called Capeside apartments, became an allegory: Eight of its twelve floors were destroyed by artillery fire and turned from a desirable urban address into little more than a rundown slum inhabited by drug addicts, disillusioned communists, and broken families. The Greater Revachol Industrial Harbour rises up from among the devastation, an artificial mountain range filled with metal shipping containers. A place of wealth, casting a long shadow of the poverty around. Beyond it lies La Drisienne, King Dris's Passenger Harbour, filled with cruise ships flanked by dock arms. The distributary of Esperance separates it from Grand Couron - and further from the East.
There is a perpetual competition between RCM precincts regarding Martinaise: Nobody wants to take responsibility for the district, and so it remains in a gray area. RCM patrols are extremely rare, with the Dockworkers' Union picking up the slack and acting as de facto police force and government for the district.
Points of interest[edit | edit source]
- Roundabout north
- In the center of the Roundabout is an "ironic" statue of Filippe III, the most wasteful of Revachol's rulers. Interacting with it gives insight into the backstory of Revachol and the decline that led to the Revolution (Encyclopedia passives aplenty). With high Perception you can notice that someone put a bullet in the center of the king's chest.
Loot[edit | edit source]
- White Tank Top: In a crate on the back of a truck, south of the Filippan statue and near the Paledriver.
