Geographic location

Map evolution of the city (since august 2017).

Spawn is located in the heart of Spawn Island and is a neighbour to Riverside (across the Cleavage River) and West Riverside in the South. It is situated at the foot of Mt Gabriel in the West and borders on the Evergreen Forest in the North East that seperates it from the city of Origin. In the North it ends at the Central plateau and in the North West it borders on the unincorporated place of Laza Land and the Raja municipality.
