What is a building block?

A Building Block is what grew out of my desire to create my own campaign setting for a super-hero themed RPG. Originally intended for a system that died I began to shop my setting around for a new home and found the existing settings to be of excellent quality and saw no reason to try and reinvent the wheel by writing basically the same thing with a new name. This realization left me in a creative quandary, I still very much wanted to continue writing my setting, but I didnt see a real need for it. So I broke it into little pieces. Those pieces were then re-thought and made general enough to be easily added to any existing setting with no trouble. So rather than create my own setting Im allowing GMs to add bits and pieces of it to their campaigns. In my experience running various RPGs, I often found myself cringing at the thought of creating yet another tavern or NPC. And looked for a product that would help me avoid this sometimes tedious chore. I found some good stuff, but never quite found what I was looking for. All Building Blocks will contain locations, NPCs, as well as adventure hooks or even a short adventure. All of these are designed to be easily inserted into your current setting. And since Building Blocks are all designed to fill what I feel is an existing need in the super-hero RPG field in time you should be able to find one to fit your exact needs! While Building Blocks are meant to be independent of any ties to any setting, I couldnt help but sprinkle elements of my original setting throughout them. So if you find a reference to a person or organization that is not contained within your Building Block it will be explained in another. But dont worry, the references can be easily ignored or replaced with something more appropriate from your own campaign. They serve only to create a sense of continuity between our products and allow for further building points to create adventures. At the end of the day the goal of the Building Block line is to seed the GMs imagination and provide a springboard to move your campaign forward. So have fun with it and let us know what you think! Wed love to hear from you! Sincerely, Jamie Wilson

Cimino Pawn
It only stands to reason that the most disreputable purveyor of questionable goods would be found in the citys worst neighborhood. Thats the role gladly played by one Ugo Cimino. When his father came to America from Sicily it was to make a new life for his family away from crime and corruption. Ugo was content with his familys modest, but happy lifestyle. That is until he reached his twentieth year when he began realizing that the world had more to offer than his meager surroundings and he wanted it. All of it. He began buying stolen merchandise from the local hoods and selling it from the back of his fathers store. Remarkably he never was arrested or even suspected of being a fence and he gained a reputation for being able to get anything. When his father passed on he left his small grocery store to his only son, Ugo, who immediately closed it and reopened as a pawn shop. The shop would serve as his front for moving all manner of stolen goods from wristwatches to high-tech weaponry. Occasionally the police make a pretense of investigating Ugo, but his bribes prevents any serious scrutiny. Cimino Pawn is a relatively small store that for all outward appearances would pass for an average pawn shop. In fact a good portion of his business is legitimate, but the real face of Cimino Pawn is the basement. Reinforced walls (hardness 17) prevent most external observation and hide an array of weapons, armor and mystical items that would make most would-be conquerors drool. Ugo understands each and every item in his store and can explain its exact usage to any would-be customer. He is also not particular about whom he sells to as long as they pay with cash. A man like Ugo Cimino does not stay in a business like his for long without knowing how to protect himself, to that end he employs two high-tech android guards (pg. 3) in his shop. Any unauthorized access leads to immediate attack. He also is prepared to use them in the eventuality of one of the cities costumed heroes decides to cause him any real trouble. Many have wondered where the high-tech weaponry that passes through Cimino Pawn comes from. Some of it is simply stolen merchandise, but some of the more powerful and expensive items are created by a mysterious underworld figure known only by the alias of the Inventor. He allows Ugo to sell some of his surplus equipment in exchange for a modest commission. The Inventor is believed to be behind most of the illegal weapons found on the city streets, but so far no one has been able to even prove his existence.

Ugo Cimino
Ugo Cimino is a slob of a man who, while not huge, carries extra weight and personal hygiene is an afterthought at best. His clothing is usually shabby and very rarely does he ever feel the need to impress anyone. He is rude to everyone and crude to woman. He has no manners and even less patience. Ugo is a businessman first and foremost, he will not intentionally upset a customer or business acquaintance to the point of losing out on a deal. For the right price he will bend over backwards and gladly suck up to anyone. However only a fool would ever trust Ugo Cimino any farther that he could throw a city bus.

Sphere Technology ENF-200r/ENF-200s


Built by Sphere Technology as the state-of-the-art robotic personal bodyguard five years ago, the ENF series never really caught on (maybe the 3.1 million dollar price tag had something to do with it). The entire line was discontinued after only manufacturing four. One is in the service of a foreign dictator, another was destroyed when it malfunctioned and started firing into a crowd. The last two somehow came into the possession of Ugo Cimino, the cities most well-known weapons dealer. How he got them remains a mystery, but he uses them as defense for his cache of truly powerful and expensive merchandise. These two models have been modified by Cimino, one to emit a burst of light and white noise designed to overwhelm the senses of its target and the other was enhanced for combat and maneuverability. Both utilize a Thomson Engineering C-55f2 concussion blaster mounted on its left shoulder and are plated in a highly durable titanium alloy armor.

Our Lady of Mercy


In the fall of 1694 an aged priest from Massachusetts, Lucius Redd, came to the city with dreams of building a grand church to serve as a haven to all in needs of Gods mercy. It took four years for construction to be completed but in the winter of 1699 Our Lady of Mercy welcomed the public into its halls. For several years the church stood as the largest structure for miles and was the spiritual home to most of the city with Redd as its heart. On his death bed in spring of 1708 he confessed to having been involved with the witch trials at Salem. His role in those now famous proceedings had been weighing on his heart and he had hoped to find redemption in his new home, but now he was consigned to die with a guilty conscience. Little changed at Our Lady of Mercy in the following decades Redd was replaced by a younger man, Joseph McKinley, who served the church faithfully for nearly thirty years. One day when a young man was accused of robbing the churchs offerings, McKinley called for punishment to be dealt out to the man. Without ever bothering to involve the authorities at the behest of McKinley the people of the church brutally stoned the man and very nearly killed him. Later it was discovered that another man had taken the money and that realization drove McKinley over the edge, he separated himself from society in an attempt to re-connect with God and learn how to atone for his sins. After a week of solitary prayer and contemplation, the spirit of Lucius Redd appeared to McKinley and instructed him to seek out the wrongly accused and bring them justice and shine light on the truth in all things. To aid in his quest McKinley was imbued with the ability to detect falsehoods whenever he heard them, he also discovered he could cause overwhelming guilt in those who would allow others to be blamed for their misdeeds. Abandoning his identity as Joseph McKinley he became the Inquisitor. Training in the ways of the law he worked his way into the court system and he would find those who where truly innocent during the day, and track down the guilty at night. For years the Inquisitor turned the guilty to the path of redemption and set the innocent free. Eventually old age claimed him. But it didnt take long for another to be chosen to be the new Inquisitor, the powers sometimes changed, as did the means of finding the innocent and the guilty, but the mission never did. The link between the Inquisitor and Our Lady of Mercy has long caused the church to support the hero in the mission to set the innocent free. The city eventually grew to envelop Our Lady of Mercy and it was surrounded by urban decay and forgotten by the city at large. Now it serves as a beacon of hope for those unfortunates who find themselves in Rose alley and a base of operations for this generations Inquisitor.

lord who has put a 10-million dollar price on her head. Can the heroes save the Inquisitor from the hit men now swarming after the money?

The Inquisitor
The current Inquisitor inherited the powers and the guise of the Inquisitor after her husband tried to have her arrested for crimes he committed. Using her newfound gifts to ferret out the truth she was able to clear her name and put her husband behind bars. She returned to school and became a lawyer, she now uses her powers to aid in her role as public defender. As the inquisitor she wears a black costume with red accents and a large cross adorns her chest. The Inquisitor takes her job very seriously and will take great care to use no more force than is absolutely necessary. While capable of lying, the thought of it runs against everything the Inquisitor stands for and is only done when absolutely necessary. The Inquisitor is in frequent contact with the catholic church, from whom she sometimes receives help and moral support in her crusade.

Wrexs Bad Ticker Bar


Wrexs is one of those bars where the band plays behind a wall of chicken wire and the floor it covered with peanut shells and teeth. The kind of place where wearing a suit could get your arm broken and a game of pool has cost lives. Open by the now-reformed villain Wrex as a way to retire gracefully, but still be able to keep in touch with his old buddies. The bar sits in a particularly bad corner of Blackrose Alley where people have been known to disappear. It is also one of the best places to go for information of any sort. Some of the cities most notorious villains unwind here after a busy day and like most people they tend to get chatty after putting away a few drinks. There is a strict no-tights rule in effect at al times in Wrexs; meaning no costumes or anything to identify yourselves as your more public identity. Fights are tolerated up until they become too destructive at which point Wrex or one of his bouncers will become involved. The bar itself is decorated with souvenirs from Wrexs more rambunctious days as a criminal. Parts of police cruisers hang from the walls and mug shots and newspaper clippings fill out the rest. Despite the frequent brawls and rowdy patrons the bar is always very well-kept and relatively clean. Wrex cooks and bartends almost every night of the week and is known for making drinks that hold a kick for even those with super constitutions.

and did a lot of time, but five years ago he learned that his heart wasnt quite as tough as the rest of him. It seems that all his years of extreme physical activity had taken its toll on his heart and if he didnt give up his life of crime it would likely kill him. Not wanting to end up dead in his thirties he gave up crime and spent what was left of his money to buy a bar. He made it into a successful and profitable business and has found happiness in it. Wrex is still very large and a little rough around the edges, but he really does have a heart of gold, but god help you if you manage to make him mad. Hes chatty and loves to go on, at great length, about his good old days and is quite oblivious to the fact that he goes on for far too long with his stories.

3 The heroes have found the person they believe to be


behind a very large robbery, but theres a problem. The suspect is an old friend or Wrex and is hiding out at his bar. Whats more is Wrex is refusing to hand them over because he believes them to be innocent.

Wrex
Rex Van Sweden was a big boy. A VERY big boy. He grew to five feet by age ten and had the muscle mass of an Olympic weightlifter. He tried to play various sports but it was just too obvious that he was super-powered and was therefore booted from every team he tried to join. He was also very friendly and worked very hard to please people, but usually he just scared them off. By the time he turned sixteen he had become very bitter with the world and lashed out. The problem being that when a seven foot tall teenager that can lift a Buick over his head lashes out, people get hurt. He spent the next two years on the Elmhurst Island Juvenile Facility for super-powered teens. The councilors there tried to reach out to him, but the only success they had was in cooking where he showed amazing skill. Eventually he was released and spent the next fifteen years as a superpowered thug and muscle-for-hire. He made a lot of money

Rialto Theater
The Rialto Theater was built in the late 1950s and served as one of the citys finest movie houses as well as host to many plays, operas and stage shows over the years. In fall of 1961 a Russian-born magician, Novgorod, made his U.S. debut at the Rialto. He finished his act flawlessly and wowed a packed house, only to suffer a massive stroke backstage and spend the rest of his days bed-ridden. Or there was the singer, Carrie Myron the songbird of the south, whos career was started at the Rialto in the late fifties. By the 1970s the theater had fallen victim to the fickle tastes of the public and changed owners several times before finally closing its doors in 1977. In the intervening years the building fell into disrepair and was scheduled for demolition when it was bought by a young entrepreneur with visions of restoring the grand old building to its former glory. In 1983 the Rialto Theater reopened for business and it looked as though its success could be the catalyst for change that Blackrose Alley needed to become once again a safe and prosperous part of the city. This was not to be, as a series of murders were terrorizing the city and the killer eluded the police at every turn. On a warm May morning in 1984 the papers were filled with stories of bodies by the dozen being pulled from the basement of the Rialto. The murders stopped and the killer was never caught, but his last victim it seems, was the Rialto. Currently the building is owned by an un-named party and sits vacant, save for a known villain going by the name of Rollover, who has made it his home. Rollover is a mutant with enhanced strength and speed, he would be dangerous if he wasnt also an idiot.

most of his body. His skin is a light grey color and his eyes are glowing yellow. Not the brightest of people, but what he lacks in brains he makes up for with brawn and a willingness to use it. He does not like to hit women and is prone to crushes on a moments notice. He thinks very highly of himself and feels everyone else should too.

Adventure Hooks 1- A movie is being shot in the city and the producers made
the mistake of filming in the Rialto. Rollover decides that the lead actress is going to be his new girl and takes her out for a night on the town.

2 Novgorod returns from the dead to put on a show. But

Hugo Jones grew up in a suburb of Cleveland in the mid eighties. He was different from the time he was born with his grey skin and yellow eyes. He was tormented at school all through his elementary years. Then puberty kicked in. His muscle mass grew at an accelerated rate and he found he was able to run faster than anyone else in school, much faster. He became the biggest bully Cleveland had ever seen and took out his anger on those that had picked on him. As an adult his mentality has not changed very much and he remains a bully.

The Briars
Many people wonder from the secure confines of their daily lives just how somebody could allow themselves to end up on the streets sleeping in alleyways or a cardboard box; surely there must have been a way to prevent such a fate. For many this life sneaks up on them slowly, so slowly they never realize its happening until its too late. For others their lives explode in an instant of poor judgment or misfortune. Whatever the case many find themselves living outside of the normal world and often cling to each other in an effort to create new communities for protection, companionship and a sense of stability for those that have lost everything. Rose Alley has more than its fair share of homeless being a section of the city that most people care little for, the homeless find refuge. Largely ignored by both the criminal element and law-enforcement the homeless have established a thriving commune in a condemned hotel, the Briars. Built in 1956, the Briars was for a short time an escape for the cities elite, but the harsh realities of Rose Alley could not be tamed and the hotel closed its doors after four short years in business. The building has remained vacant ever since and was condemned by the city ten years ago, but there have been no plans to re-develop the site so it has remained vacant. A few years ago the homeless of the area began to rally around a new leader, a meta-human with a bizarre appearance that made her life amongst normal people impossible, but the homeless accepted her as simply one of their own. She used her powers to carve a place for the homeless by claiming the Briars building as a homeless haven. Close to two-hundred homeless live in the confines of the Briars building, most are just normal people dealt a poor hand by life, but some others are much more than they appear. There are other outcast meta-humans and those who for whatever reason, wish not to be found. The homeless have also collected a wide variety of unusual items, mostly trash taken from various parts of the city, but some items were collected after meta-human battles and could contain vast power. The leader has control of access to these items and will not allow outsiders to know of their existence if she can help it.

Berserk
Marcus Kennedy doesnt remember much about his life before living with the homeless, nor does he seem to have any interest in remembering it. On the surface he appears to be just like any other person walking the streets, but deep inside there lives an anger that wells up and lashes out at those around him with super-human strength. Most people tend to believe that his anger was simply too much for him to handle and he fled his previous life to live in an environment where he couldnt harm anyone. While others say he is a murderer and has blocked his crimes from his memory by choice. Whatever the case he has found peace amongst the homeless and on the rare occasions when his anger gets the better of him it has always been in defense of his fellow homeless. When calm Berserk appears to be just like any other homeless person. But when he becomes agitated his

The leader, or Mary, has forged a family as tight and caring as any found all across America. Her natural charisma and genuine concern for the homeless

Scrap
Amsah Saleh was born the cherished daughter to loving parents. Her childhood was one of privilege and stability. However shortly after her fifteenth birthday she became ill and her condition baffled every doctor she was taken too. She seemed to be starving to death no matter what steps were taken to prevent it. It wasnt until she was lying in a hospital bed and touched the rail and absorbed the metal into her arm that her condition improved. After discovering that metal was required by her body on a regular basis her parents seemed willing to cope with a meta-human daughter at first, but as her condition progressed she began to take on the properties of the metals she ingested. Her appearance changed until she looked every bit a scrap-metal monster. Unable to take the horrified looks of her own parents Amsah ran away. She lived for nearly a year on the streets absorbing bits of metal from cars and street signs until she saved a group of homeless people from hooligans intent on setting them aflame. After that she was taken in by the homeless as one of their own. Amsah is an intelligent and shy girl that looks like a seven foot tall metallic monster. She is fluent in Arabic and English and very protective of her new family. Scrap resembles a walking mass of rusting and weathered metal plates. Her eyes glow a dim white from inside the patchwork of plates that constitute her face. Scrap has the personality of a normal sixteen year-old girl. She likes boys, fashion and music. Despite her appearance she usually maintains an upbeat attitude.

Lou
Louis McPherson was in the wrong place at the wrong time, he witnessed a murder committed by a highranking military officer. He immediately went to the authorities and was placed into protective custody. The apartment complex he was being kept at was bombed, he only escaped death by being blown clear of the building and into the pool. His entire family was killed in the blast and he later learned that the officer had been cleared of all charges against him. Louis life was over, but hoping that one day he might find a way to gain revenge he melted into the cities homeless population to bide his time. He is a gifted engineer and skilled in metal-work and in his years with the homeless he has become a trusted confidant of the leader.

Flaming Amy
Amy Beckett grew up in rural Ohio where she yearned to someday experience the big city life. She was always very shy and quiet child who blossomed into a beautiful and popular teenager. When she turned eighteen she left her home and set out to make her life in the city. She found city life to be more difficult than she had imagined and soon ended up in the porn industry. She hated what she had to do for a living and vowed to someday be able to quit. Her chance came shortly after her twentieth birthday when she was given a mixture of new designer superdrugs. Her body didnt react to the drugs the way it was supposed to and she burst into flames. After burning down her employers studio she ran off into the city where she was found by the Leader. She has since learned a measure of control over her fiery abilities, but still harbors a sadistic dislike of most people. Amy is a very attractive young woman. Despite her surroundings and lack of money, she still manages to present herself as very clean and well-kept. Amy is sadistic almost to the point of cruel. She wont harm anyone that doesnt deserve it, but she will enjoy doing it. She is fiercely protective of animals and young children, whom she sees as the only real innocents.

Gangs of the Alley


Several gangs of angry young men and women prowl the streets. Most of them are just normal people seeking a sense of belonging and family. Some are groups of particularly bloodthirsty and violent societal outcasts bent on wreaking as much havoc as possible. While still others include misfit super-powered beings with powers that have made the already difficult transition into adulthood almost impossible. Oftentimes rebellious and driven by anger at being rejected by their biological family and society at large, they find solace in the adopted family of the street. The gangs themselves view these misguided supers as a means to gain real power and respect, and so they accept them when others will not. Detailed here are two of the most prominent gangs with super-powered leaders and one that rules their territory through terror and intimidation.

The Dragons
The Dragons first appeared on the city streets almost twenty years ago. They tried to make a name for themselves and earn the respect they felt they deserved, it just didnt work out well for them and the Dragons become something of a joke on the streets. That changed four years ago with the arrival of a super known as Li Rong the Dragon Teng. Thrown from her home at thirteen when her superpowers began to manifest themselves in her disturbing appearance, Li Rong became tough in order to survive. Due to her reptilian appearance and ability to breathe fire she became known as the Dragon. At Sixteen she joined the Dragons gang and soon rose through the ranks to become the leader of the gang. Her intelligence and raw powers have made the Dragons a force to be reckoned with. While they may not be responsible for bank robberies or bombings, the Dragons run a lucrative protection racket and terrorize the inhabitants of several city blocks.

Li Ron the Dragon Teng


Li Ron Teng was born in a family of wealth, her mother a lawyer and her father a businessman. She had everything she could have wanted except her parents attention. They were so busy with their own lives that they almost never noticed their daughter. She convinced herself that she didnt need anyone but herself, so when she began to grow a layer of scales over her skin and her parents disowned her, she didnt mind. After running away from her foster parents she took to the streets where her attitude only worsened. She fought her way into the Dragons and into the role as leader and is very proud of what she has done all by herself. Li Ron has not tolerance for weakness in any form. She is cold and calculating willing to sacrifice anyone or anything to achieve her goals. She is an effective fighter having been trained in martial arts in her youth and does not hesitate to shed the first blood. Li Ron has a layer of shiny grey scales that cover her entire body. Her eyes are piercing and black as night. She wears a tank-top and black pants nearly all of the time.

8th Street Hustlers


All Leon ever wanted was to be respected and feared, he got his wish when he gained the ability to manipulate electrical current. He used his abilities to make a name for himself in hopes of becoming a hitman, but when a local gang leader felt Leon was becoming a threat he decided it was time for Leon to die. Fifteen members of the 8th Street Hustlers were hospitalized trying to kill Leon and the then leader of the gang was found electrocuted in the middle of the street. Leon took the street name of Crosswire and assumed control of the Hustlers from that moment on. Since then the Hus-

Page 12

tlers have become known for bank robberies and brutally annihilating any competition that enters into their territory. At the moment that have a truce with the Dragons that prevents them from an all-out war.

Crosswire
Leon Marcellus had it hard as a child, his mother was an alcoholic and his father was just gone. No one cared where he went or what he did so he constantly found himself getting into more and bigger trouble. His first arrest was at the age of 15 when he stole a car and by 19 he had already served a brief sentence in prison. Shortly after his twentieth birthday he discovered his mutant electric powers. So he decided use his powers to make all of his dreams come true and crush anyone that tried to stop him.. Leon, now calling himself Crosswire, soon set his sights on a local gang leader and found himself cornered by fifteen members of that very gang. He struck wildly and before he knew it, he had incapacitated them all. It was easy work to kill the gang leader and shortly after he assumed leadership of the Hustlers. The new course for his life was now set as the leader of the most feared gang in the city. Leon is fond of loose fitting clothes and sunglasses, which serve to hide the special armor he wears for a little extra protection. He is always very clean and well-kept and prides himself on his appearance. Leon craves respect and will go to great lengths to get it. He is more than willing to resort to violence if his reputation is on the line, but will usually try and talk his way out of a situation first. He is very protective of his gang family and takes poorly to anyone he views as a threat to them.

Hundred Dolla Killaz C-Note made his name at a young age alongside the man that would become one of the cities most feared crime fighters, Night Owl. The two were best of friends as teens and looked out for one another, that is until a desperate C-Note killed his friends parents for money. In the years since that night, being on the run as a wanted man, he become the central figure in one of the largest organized gangs in the city. Responsible for drugs, money laundering, extortion, murder and almost any other crime imaginable, the Hundred Dolla Killaz take their name from C-Notes penchant for shoving hundred-dollar bills into the mouths of his victims. Safe from police scrutiny, thanks to large and numerous bribes, the Killaz only real threat is the various vigilantes that prowl the streets at night. However, a warning was sent to all would-be heroes. It came in the form of a very dead crime fighter, left hanging outside the city hall with a one-hundred dollar bill in his mouth. The Killaz will tolerate no threat to their organization and will deal with anyone that tries with extreme violence. C-Note Clarence was raised by his father and grandparents, his mother died giving birth to him. He received love and attention, but always lashed out against it. He got caught up in a life of violence and drugs and enjoyed every minute of it. He also took the name C-Note, because of his tendency to flash a wad of hundred dollar bills after a robbery. By sixteen he met Ian Chappel a young man with a similar outlook on life and more, his parents were worth over three million dollars. C-Note saw in Ian a chance to buy his way into the easy life so he befriended him. The two young men went on a three-years rampage and often found themselves spending time in jail, but nothing was ever pinned on them and they always walked. C-Note was reckless and hell-bent on causing havoc, but he was not

Page 13

stupid, he always found a way to eliminate evidence and produce an alibi. Five years ago he did make one big mistake, while trying to impress a young woman he made some wagers at a local casino. Having lost and unable to cover the bets, he was given only five days to cover almost tenthousand dollars. C-Note became desperate. He decided to break into his friend Ians home and steal the money, after all they had plenty of cash. He was discovered by Ians father, Avery, and in a panic C-Note shot him. He then heard screams coming from another room and knew them to be Ians mother and then shot her too. Gathering the cash he needed he quickly fled. C-Note paid of the bookie and decided to lay low for a while. In his haste he had left fingerprints and knew the police would be looking for him. He spent weeks in a safe house until his friend Ian finally found him. He tried to convince Ian that he had done him a favor by killing his parents because he would now inherit three million dollars. Ian beat C-Note within an inch of his life and left his unconscious body for the police to find. C-Note found himself in a jail cell awaiting trial when one of the cities most prominent lawyers paid him a visit. She had been hired by an un-named benefactor to represent C-Note in court. She found every loophole and technicality in the book and C-Note only served three years for the two murder and robbery charges. When he was released from prison C-Note found a car waiting for him with a very insistent driver. Soon he was standing in front of Calvino Turri one of the cities most notorious gangsters. It was Calvino that had hired the lawyer. Having watched C-Note for some time, he was impressed by the young man and offered C-Note an opportunity to become an enforcer for one of his drug operations. C-Note accepted the offer and took to his new position with enthusiasm. He gained influence and notoriety for being very hands on. Eventually he broke free of the Turri family and made it clear he intended to remain free of them by killing Calvino and cramming several hundred dollar bill down his throat. C-Note renamed his crew the Hundred Dolla Killaz and remains one the cities most wanted drug lords.

Disc Junkies
Originally built as a warehouse, the club called Disc Junkies is one of the few places in the alley that will bring in people from other parts of the city. It is known for its wild parties and wilder patrons. Movie stars and gangsters have all been known to come here, but not publicly of course. Anything can be had here for the right price and that is the type of environment that draws all the wrong types of people. There has been very little trouble, mostly because the clubs patrons themselves will put an end to anything that gets too far out of control. Most of the clubs regulars want nothing to draw attention to their own private haven of vice. On the rare occasion that someone has died inside the club walls, their body is always relocated to a remote corner of the city, most are never found. The clubs owner is a very mysterious man that no one can claim to have met. The employees never meet him and the accountant receives all money from an account that always has just enough money in it. Security is typically pretty lapse, but with several super-powered guests at any given point, its usually not a problem.

Gyro
Derrick Coe liked getting into trouble. From crawling out of his bedroom window in the middle of the night as a child, to holding up liquor stores as a teenager, he always seemed to be in one form of trouble or another. His parents gave up on trying to keep their son on the straight and narrow and were relieved when he was sent to a juvenile detention center. It was during this time that Derrick developed a love for hip-hop music. He spent hours writing his own rhymes and practicing saying them. His devotion to the music was even enough to keep him out of trouble for nearly two years when he eventually turned eighteen. The day after his birthday he was released and went out into the world to try and make a name for himself in hip-hop. He entered himself into a battle shortly before taking the stage he became queasy and lightheaded. Thinking it to be nerves Derrick, now calling himself Gyro, got on stage. As soon as he began talking the entire crowd was overcome with a fit of vomiting and dizziness. Within a minute, half of the people in the building had passed out and Gyro stood in shock realizing what he had done. The next day he spent the entire day sitting in his run-down apartment and was struck with an idea that appealed to his long dormant inner troublemaker. Several days later he walked into a convenience store and began to rhyme. As expected within minutes he was the only conscious person in the building. Gyro had begun his new life as a super-villain. Gyro keeps himself neat and clean at all times. He usually sports a jersey from one basketball team or another and dark sunglasses. Gyro may be a thief and hired thug, but he values honesty above everything. He is rude and obnoxious and would gladly beat you down and steal your last dollar, but hell tell you so to your face. Gyro is not a fighter, he prefers to let other do any fighting, his role is to wreak havoc and keep from getting hit.

Clockwork
When Lucy Watson was hit by a car shortly after her thirteenth birthday it appeared her life was over. Her parents agreed to have he participate in an experimental cybernetic treatment that might save her life. She was infused with millions of tiny nanobots that slowly but surely replaced her damaged organs and tissue with bio-mechanic replacements. At first the treatment seemed to be a success, but the nanobots didnt stop with the damaged and destroyed parts of her body, eventually they replaced most of the organic components with bionics. The nanobots were finally deactivated, but not before replacing most of the flesh on her body with metallic plates, even here eyes werent spared. Very little of what had once been Lucy Watson remained. What was left was now stronger, faster and had much more acute senses. The nanobots had ever equipped her with offensive capabilities such as being able to configure her body into various tools and weapons. Clockwork is a very bitter young woman. She is eager to make new friends, but usually her defensive nature keeps people at arms distance. She is very touchy about her appearance and while she is used to stares, she still doesnt like them. Clockwork is a pretty blonde woman with short hair and a bright smile. She also has dull blue cybernetic limbs and part covering nearly 70% of her body. She looks like something from a science fiction movie with wires running in and out of her and shiny metal plates covering large portions of her skin.

Mr. Merciless
Matt c knew from about age twelve that he was different from other kids. When he fell off his bike, he left dents in the pavement. When he punched a wall, it broke. To put it simply he was nearly immune to pain and strong as an ox. He used his powers quietly to his advantage, never really doing anything that would tip other people off, just enough to get what he wanted. He became the bully, the one that everyone is afraid of, including most adults. When eventually his parents discovered his powers and how he had been using them, they sent him to a special home for juvenile delinquents. This did more harm than good, as it was here he met future partner in crime, Gyro. The two hit it off and would spend hours discussing music and what they would do in the future when they were old enough. Matt was released upon turning eighteen several months before Gyro, and the two lost touch for over a year. During this time Matt tried to live a normal life, but he was quickly becoming board with mundane life. And then one afternoon he ran into his friend Gyro who had just embarked on a career as a super-villain. Matt wasted no time in agreeing to be the muscle to Gyros mayhem. While the duo do work separately from time to time, they are far more formidable as a team. They can be found partying at Disc Junkies most nights of the week, barring the occasional jail sentence.
