on 3 and 9 o'clock, plaza vs. circle?

Post by nvanderh » Tue Jul 25, 2017 10:13 am

What are the names placement uses to distinguish between the two circles on 3 o'clock? I'm seeing one referred to as a "Public Plaza", is that the circle by B or by G?

For example, Arctica is located at 3:00 at the G plaza this year.

From a page on the BM site.

There are five plaza Portals on the Esplanade: at Center Camp, 3:00, 4:30, 7:30, and 9:00.
The Civic plazas are at 3:00 and 9:00 at Breath, centered 3180’ from the Man, There are two Art plazas at 4:30 and 7:30, and two additional plazas at 3:00 and 9:00 at Genuflect,centered 4380’ from the Man, and a Public plaza at 6:00 at Inspirit ,which is centered 4,860’ from the Man. All plazas, except Center Camp, are 250’ in diameter.

thanks for the responses, but I'm still confused. I'm trying to know the different names for the two plazas on 3 o'clock, there's an inner one and an outer one. I have my own words for distinguishing them, but I need to know which one placement uses.

gaminwench is saying inner is "portal" formerly "keyhole" and outer is "plaza".

molotov is saying the outer one is called "g plaza".

motskyroonmatick is saying inner is "civic plaza" and outer is "additional plazas".

It is really confusing and for my camp means we may be placed much further out than originally expected.

When I typed G plaza I was talking about the plaza located at the intersection of 3:00 and G.

Your nomenclature makes perfect sense. Placement and the ORG don't use it and it's caused some wonder.

I got word back from placement. Their terms for the circles on 3 and 6 are "Plaza" vs. "Public Plaza". The Plaza is on B, the Public Plaza is on G.

Sorry I didn't see this one sooner. Yes, the 3:00 and 9:00 "plaza" are the inner plazas located at B, and the "public plaza" is the outer plaza located at G. The "portal" designation refers to the angled streets that form a keyhole with the inner plaza on the respective street.

I liked it when the portals went to Keyholes.
