While Stimtown is frequented by all sorts of habbers, only those involved in truly shady business would ever risk entering the Grinder. Here, life is cheaper than a candy bar, and a glance the wrong way could see you flatlined in a blink. The entire area is daused in shadows due to perpetual problems with the power supply, and the lack of proper lighting only reinforces the shady aura of the place. Needless to say, corpSec only enter if they absolutely have to, and often not even then. They’d rather falsify a patrol report than risk their lives.
Some have set up permanent residences here, and several gangs constantly vie for dominance of the bulk trade in contraband - much of which later finds its way to Stimtown for The Node.
Part of the Grinder was once intended to be an atrium for the la-habbers and it was originally named Tranquility Park, A discerning eye might still spot the remains of a rotting plant or two in some murky corner, but the gangs claimed the area long ago and made it their own. Adjacent to the atrium a gallery of sorts was erected, intended to showcase corporate art and reinforce the company spirit. This gallery has since become the abode of the local drug lord.
