The Elysium of Roxby Downs is the Clyde K. Mitchell Memorial Greenhouse. This was one of the first civil structures built and is surprisingly large for a desert city.
Laws of Elysium
Blatantly adapted from Brisbane's Wiki
1. Elysium is neutral territory for all kindred, regardless of clan, covenant, faith or standing.
1.1 Hindering a kindred's entry or exit, or forcing their entry or exit, is considered an attack on that kindred.
2. Violence of any kind against another kindred is expressly forbidden and is considered a Sin against the City, punishable by the Master of Elysium or the Prince.
3. The location of Elysium is to be protected. Endangering the Masquerade or drawing undue attention in, at, on the way to or from Elysium is a Sin against the City.
4. The carrying of weapons is permitted but:
4.1 the laws of the kine must not be seen to be broken, as doing so draws undue attention to Elysium.
4.2 if the Laws of Elysium are breached with a weapon brought to the location, the breach will be deemed as premeditated.
5. The use of Discipline, Ritual or Devotion without the express consent of the target is considered an attack on that kindred.
5.1 and this extends to powers and abilities implied but not explicitly listed in the Laws of Elysium
6. The Master of Elysium has the final word on what is acceptable at Elysium
