Obscure cities archives
Welcome to Altaplana the place on the internet with all the archives of Les Cités Obscures / The Obscure Cities. These archives about the work of François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters have already 1880 pages and is growing day by day.
Altaplana was founded in November 747 AT, after the Convention Von Amelunxen decided that all archives had to be centralized in one special place. Altaplana is located west of Urbicande and Alaxis, mid-way between the two in longitude.
The founding of Altaplana was not an immediately success. It took a long time to sort out if the documents have to be archived in alphabetical, chronological or logical order. Even after personal intervention of Governor Arkhalsky the chaos remained.
It was after a long time that Joseph Le Perdriel brought structure in the chaos by implementing a system that allowed documents to be archived in alphabetical, chronological and logical order, all at the same time. This system made it possible to lift the embargo on information and open the Altaplana archives for everyone.
