The boomtown of Gomorra was originally a settlment founded by a man called Humphrey Walters. It did not begin to prosper until after the seismic event which created the Great Maze, after which Walters land was found to be situated on top of the greatest concentration of Ghost Rock deposits which had yet been found.

The settlement then became a popular miner's camp, home to a ragtag band of prospectors. It wasn't long before The Sweetrock Mining Company moved in and developed the settlement into something resembling a town.
