Retina Fetish (Terminal)
A Terminal nightclub aimed at the most extreme segments of urban culture. Caters to the high end of Manhattan’s spectrum… plenty of the club goers dress like they live in a gutter, but none of them actually do. The owner, Candy, was a fixer of some repute years back. Rumor has it that he still is, but no one claims to do illegal business with him anymore. Either he’s gone legit, or he’s gotten real careful.
A combat sports arena, home to the Manhattan Maniacs Urban Brawl team.
Formerly known as the “Lower East Side”, the Pit is the only part of Manhattan not under the authority of the MDC or a corporate security exclusion zone. Nearly 150,000 people live in this 2 mile square area, most of them in tenement houses. The Pit has no government, just a cross section of criminal and political groups that maintain a semblance of order. The largest non-criminal organization with a presence in the Pit is the Neo-Anarchists, a cabal of artists, hackers, thinkers and free spirits. The Neo-As are responsible for most of the ‘civic works’ in the Pit that have made it habitable… from building a shared solar and wind power grid to water treatment facilities.
Delux’s Bar (The Pit)
The classical Irish pub is a hangout for runners, Fixers, and all sorts of other lowlifes. Delux (an orc so large his is often mistaken for a troll) himself acts as an occasional Agent or Fixer when a big enough job comes his way, but usually he leaves such tasks to his regulars. Fagin is a staple of this establishment, and can usually be found here half way in to a bottle of scotch.
