Special Interest Groups. This is the most varied and mix-matched sub-sector. Bounty Hunters/Vigilantes. Bodyguard services. World Bank. Greenpeace. Neo-Nazis, Aryan Nation. KKK. Freemasons [Lion’s Club, Moose..], All Religions, Groupies, Supernatural Hunters [of vampires, werewolves, etc. The Society of Leopold is an old vampire-hating inquisition]. Arcanum, Talamasca [Anne Rice]. Superhero/Mutant Leagues. The media is as varied:’X-men, Batman, Justice League, The Specials, From Hell, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Vampire Hunter-D, and many, many others I can’t recall.’

The Technocratic Union. Sparked by Socrates and renewed during the Enlightenment, the “empire of reason” now dominates our lives. Deterministic science, based on Newtonian laws of physics. A general disbelief in the paranormal. Religious doubt. Atheism. Socialism. Laisez faire. These principles set the parameters of life for the average Wicked City urbanite. Any deviation from the “norm” is frowned-upon, labeled hysteria, and firmly shut-away. An ancient colloboration, first called the Order of Reason, now nicknamed the Technocracy, strives to maintain this status quo. They mistrust all supernatural activity as harmful and potentially disastrous. They have taken it upon themselves, as Big Brother, to protect the herds of humanity against such deviations. They keep blinders on mankind, in order to protect them, by eliminating all unpredictabilities. They employ several means, many of which will not be reprinted in detail here. You can research them if you’re interested: The New World Order [the Technocratic politicians, inevitably ultra-conservative], Iteration-X [the cyborg, MARK, killer-robot specialists], the Syndicate [the money], and Void Engineers [the deep-space technicians]. The Technocracy is very, very subtle; low-key. The majority of mankind is unaware. Supernaturals quickly become aware, usually by violent means. Thought Police, Men-in-Black [not as cordial as Will Smith], and an elite Strike-Force Zero [up to 12 members] equipped with advanced biotechnology all focus on neutralizing supernaturals. They are extremely efficient. The archangels of banality. Rumours say some dissident supernaturals have actually sided with the Technocracy. This has greatly helped to even the odds: a civil war. Media: ‘1984, Gattica.’

Member Organized Crime/Gangs. The Mafia [Sicilian], Red Mafiya [Russian], Mexican Mafia, Columbia Cartels [Cali], Yakuza [Japanese], Triads, 14k, Tongs [Chinese] all deal in extortion, loansharking, hijacking, bootlegging, drugs, money laundering, gambling [casinos, horses, sports], corruption, thievery/fraud, strong-arming/business infiltration, and nukes. Typical gangs are Bloods, Crips, Spanish Cobras, Straightedgers, Vice Lords, Latin Kings, El Rukns, Mongrel Mob, Black Power, Black Panther, Purple Top, Black Gangster Disciples, Cashflo, Kings, Counts, TMV’s, TMC’s. Gangs are usually organized by a Leader [O.G.], hardcore members, associates, fringe members, and wanna-be’s. They often ally into bigger Nations, Folk, or Folds. Don’t forget comic-bookish Supervillians. The streets are rife with constant, petty crime. Media: ‘Friday, Grand Theft Auto III, The Godfather, Scarface.’

Member Ooohhh I forgot about this realm.........actually I didn't but it is great to peep the original imagination that came up with the city. (points to a "certain Skyscraper with the name Iglesia Enterprises half lit above the humid smog of the City.) "That" is a place you may NOT want to visit..... *Smiles all Sinister and Evil like*

Member -chuckling- Good luck on the "not making people feel alienated/marginalized". New ideas seem to make folks uncomfortable, y'just gotta throw 'em out there and try to repeatedly impress that whole "optional" thing.
