For the same reason, the main square of the city is named as Cartesian Square.

Where the judicial processes of the server used to take place. Currently, the court has no use, but it's left as a historical building.

Area originally focused as a PVP arena, inherited from the old server. It was left as a decorative monument once the pvp was vetoed in the server.

First area where all the players were imprisoned. It is currently open only for visits, since a new jail with higher security was open at Origin Island.

Natural and symmetrical square built at East Origin, next to the Idiot Cementery of the old prison. Its name is due to the fact that for some reason, before this park was built, this place was always crowded by black sheeps, all of them escaped from Ovis Decipula.

Place where different classes of unknown nodes from old mods are exposed and described. It also exposes some oddities or other items that are currently not obtainable at all.

Geography

Topographic evolution of the city (since August 2017).

The city is located on the shores of the Torvalds Canal. Originally it was found in a green grass plain surrounded by a jungle from north-west, a wood of mushroom-shaped trees from south and a bamboo grove from east.

As buildings and urbanizations have grown on this city, the weather has dried up and consequently, the dimensions of the jungle biome have been decreasing in favor of the grow of the bamboo and grove biome. The terrain is mostly flat, and currently the urban facade and the green grass predominates. It lacks of any ravines or mountains. A natural beach, Origin Sands, also stands out at the northern part of the municipality.

Economy

The economy of this city is driven mostly by tourism, commerce and industry. It features several rental and purchasable houses along the northern and western area of the city, some of them supplying electric power for the inhabitants.

Origin also offers several commercial services, such as stores and restaurants. The first and the most prominent store of the city is Mercadona, found at the central part of the city. This area also had a lottery administration, until its dismantlement in October 2018 due to suspicion of financial fraud. Also, the local transport of this city is paid with a small fee.

Transport

Marcuse Street Station

Origin is served by a number of Spawn Subway lines, including lines 1, 2, 2a, 4, 5 and 8. Apart from that, there are two elevated ring lines (O1 and O2). Since June 2019, a tram network is being constructed, but this is not yet in operation.

Origin has two long-distance railway stations. Marcuse Street Station on the Spawn-Origin Mainline operates train services to Spawn, South Forest, Riverside and Kulbacki Land, while Origin North Station operates the ATL Zinc Line and the Crystal Farms Express.

The only and most important festival in this region is the Burning Pine Day and it takes place during February 24 every year.
