Yverdon-Les-Ombres is a city on the Obscure continent. The city was unknown for a long time, until an editorial team of L'Echo des Cités prepared a special edition on the city for the exhibition Mondes (im)parfaits in Yverdon-Les-Bains.

Yverdon-Les-Bains has the name to be a foggy city, but in reality sunshine and rain alternate at regular intervals, leading the Authorities to declare the state of climate schizophrenia.
