Samarobrive is an Obscure City in the Central southern portion of the Continent, bordering the Sea of Farewells. Controls the Quadra Nova territory 1). It has a number of points in common with the French city of Amiens, and almost even took that name. This is interesting, because Amiens was the last residence of Jules Verne, and the famous author is known to have visited the Obscure Cities extensively.

The Temple of Servadac can be found in Samarobrive 2). It is reported that Captain Nemo visited the place, but it may have been in fact Jules Verne. This event was recorded both by a drawing of Stanislas Sainclair and a fresco of Augustin Desombres 3).

Samarobrive is also known for its floating gardens 4).
