Rebecca is going to Lunabella! It's weird but she wants to see cool things and be better-traveled and maybe it's less weird if you see it in practice, a lot of people do reportedly like it there. And it's safe just to visit, it's not like she's going to be swept up by a slave caravan as soon as she bounces onto the moon. So this she does, hopping out of the portal network, silk witch robes whispering against her skin and lovingly-conditioned hair tightening its curls in the light gravity.
The network will drop her off on the outskirts of a plaza, paved with a colorful mosaic, depicting patterned borders surrounding broom-riding witches and cornucopias. There's planters, some of which have plants growing taller than they would in full Earth gravity, and a colorfully illuminated fountain. A lot of people are heading in via rift and going to some destination or another. There's vendors of foods ranging from 'AUTHENTIC Alfheimr Winter Rolls' to 'Anthousa's Hot Dogs', as well as vendors of other products. Most of the signage is in both some form of Greek, English, and a script Rebecca may recognize as Elven, often with some other languages. The widest array of prominently displayed languages on signage seems to be at the Visitor Information booth.
She doesn't have much of an itinerary so she wafts herself on the wind over to the Visitor Information booth. "Hello! I'm a tourist! What's can't-miss attractions up here? Can you recommend a hotel?"
Wow, she's striking. Still, doesn't really change what needs to be said.
"Hello and welcome to Chasmapolis on Lunabella! If you're staying in Chasmapolis proper, I have a guide to accommodations." She'll hand over a brochure and gets out another one and a pen.
"You sound American. If you are, you definitely won't want to miss the lunar landing site tour." She marks the second brochure. "It's on the near-Earth side, of course, so you'll have to sign a Covenant to stay in-bounds for the tour and there's fees for that and such, but I suspect you'll find it worthwhile. And you should try steakmelon. But really, tourists come here for a lot of reasons, I'd like to know what your interests are."
"I like music and flying and Watchery stuff."
"Well, I wouldn't advise mentioning that last part too loudly, the Watchers aren't very popular around here. The Phigaleia Arboretum is primarily intended to be viewed from above. Right now they're focused on a nighttime exhibit with a lot of glowing art, but you can visit during their day phase too, the art will just look less dramatic. Lady Chloe's running a wind park, if you like very unnatural winds. The Myrine Hall has a lot of orchestral performances, I have a schedule for them. There's a stage in the west plaza and usually someone performs there, generally for free to build mana. And I believe that 'Forty Turtles' is going to do a concert in Nikasepolis. They're a modern group on a tour visiting, but it might still interest you."
"Why aren't the Watchers very popular around here?"
"Well, attitudes vary, entire theses have been written. I can to summarize. Lunabella is about witches building somewhere nice to live and getting away from forces that would make it more complicated. Many witches feel that beings from distant realms with unclear intentions, and people whose aims are unpredictable due to being agents of those beings, make things more complicated. The Watchers are also somewhat interventionist on Earth compared to the average witch group, and any intervention on Earth poses a stability risk, even if they claim to try to minimize those."
"I guess those are pretty okay reasons as they go. The aboretum sounds lovely, what time zone is it in?"
"Oh, it's on Coordinated Universal Time, a lot of the visitor attractions with day-night cycles are."
"Convenient. I mostly like vocal music, if that changes your recommendations?"
"Oh, in that case I'll recommend traditional theater, it has choirs. It's pretty much entirely in Lunabellan Greek, but some of the theaters will loan out devices displaying subtitles."
"Great - which ones -?"
The doll will go over some theater options. Apparently the most acclaimed theater is in another city, but not hard to travel to. If there's any classic Greek plays Rebecca likes, some of them might be showing somewhere, the local theater recently did a version of Ajax set in the Plane of Fire.
"I've kind of always wanted to see Lysistrata but honestly I'm not too picky about musical theater. Are tickets expensive?"
"Prices vary, but it shouldn't be too hard to get cheap seats somewhere. They give me individual theater brochures, those should have guidance, I'll give you some. Lysistrata … hmm. There's a showing, but it's not near here, it's also in Nikasepolis at the Azure Theater."
"How does... tourism... differ in different parts, I was told this was a great place to be a tourist and totally safe and everything but I don't know as much about the rest."
"Well, English speakers are rarer in most places than they are in Chasmapolis, we get the highest throughput of travelers due to the laxest wards against portals. People operating information booths or libraries anywhere are likely to speak it, hotels will probably have translators, most people will probably know someone who speaks it, but if you want to buy cheap food outside Chasmapolis you're probably not going to be buying from a fluent English speaker. Additionally, regarding safety: If someone tries to attack you in a city, the city will protect you. If you are in some matron's domain as a guest and someone tries to attack you, the matron will protect you. If you are outside of any domain and you're attacked, the Lunabellan government will not necessarily defend you, though there are various defense services you could buy. If you enter a domain that isn't a city without an invitation and don't announce yourself, that's trespassing and it's illegal. Crime is generally low, and if you don't have enemies you should be fine to go flying outside domains, but if you, say, have a bounty on your head, I would recommend against it."
"The landing tour thing, that's not in a domain, right?"
"It is, actually, just not a very modified domain compared to the base environment. If it wasn't in a domain it'd be less convenient to do tours."
"Ohh, okay. Thank you so much!" And she hops off (whee!) to read her brochures. ...she takes out her gloves, because she doesn't care for this paper, and then she reads her brochures.
Well, one of them is an English-language map of Chasmapolis with portals and various tourism-relevant sites such as hotels labeled. The portal to Chelopolis is highlighted, with a note saying that Chelopolis is where the moon landing tour starts.
Another one is more of a booklet, and full of hotel listings. There's also several for local theaters, mentioning lots of showtimes in UTC for plays Rebecca hasn't heard of. There doesn't seem to be an obvious pattern to when businesses in Chasmapolis are and aren't closed. The hotels rent per hour, day, or week, but there aren't standardized check-in and check-out times.
What differentiates the hotels?
Proximity to city center, room size, associated services, price, occasionally theming. If she wants somewhere cheap near the city center, it might be sharing a building with some other businesses and not have a ground floor, though there'll be an elevator if she can't fly to their main balcony.
At the extremely cheap end, she could sleep in a shared bed or a bunk in a shared room. At the extremely expensive end, someone with a higher budget than she has could stay in what seems to essentially be a luxury apartment, with a servant who can conjure and prepare food. More realistically, she can get a bathroom-bedroom combination that promises comfortable darkness for sleep and that someone on staff can conjure basic foodstuffs. If she wants electrical outlets much less HexVPN, a television, a laundry room, the option to leave her room and return to it by balcony, a gym, or accommodations for special dietary or mana-charging needs, the brochure can help her find somewhere in her price range with those properties.
She doesn't need somebody else's Hex VPN or for that matter somebody else's electricity! She is magical! She'll go with a low-end private dark room. She intends to hit the restaurants so she doesn't care much if they provide breakfast.
Sure, she can get a decent and cheap room on the outskirts of town. The room is less "constantly dark" and more "visibly has a lot of capacity to be darkened", which combined with the lack of unified daily scheduling suggests the 'sun' might not set in Chasmapolis.
The hotel does still provide breakfast, but less in the sense of having a dining room, and more in the sense that the concierge can conjure foods she's personally eaten before and will do so for guests.
