City L. Or, as some call it, "Laboratory City." An ultra-modern metropolis situated on an artificial island off of Japan's coast, City L is a mecca of scientific advancement and technology. In the city, the Renegade Virus is one of the major topics of study, and its nature is no secret to the residents, most of whom are Overed or have the potential to awaken as Overed if the circumstances arise. The UGN has relaxed their information control within the confines of the city, creating a unique microcosm in which ordinary people and Overed may interact freely. Some within the UGN feel that such a bold move is dangerous to the status-quo. Others feel it's how things should be, and many of City L's residents can't help but feel that it might be that the biggest experiment in the city is the city itself. The prevalence of high tech research, often aided by Overed, has given the city technology years ahead of the mainland, and possibly the rest of the world. Security robots patrol and sweep the streets. Medical facilities are pristine and state-of-the-art. The standard of living is overall quite high. And, of course, if one is interested in research, one can find funding and a place to work in just about any area. The city's population is an interesting mix, with many people brought in from around the globe to bolster the Renegade research which goes on there. Additionally, many children who become Overed or tested for high potential for their Renegade to become active have been sent to the city as students, attending one of the many schools focused on the training and development of Overed powers. The entire city bustles with people, including its large adolescent population. The large number of Overed students has led to the form of a city-wide public morals committee which serves as something of a volunteer police force. Although they have no authority to apprehend criminals and are instructed to leave violent crime to the professionals, the students do an admiral job of policing their own. Of course, not all is well in City L. It has its share of poor or disused districts, often home to delinquents and gangs, either of the normal sort or more rarely Overed (or worse, Gjaums) who have no interest in bending their powers toward any common good. Rumors abound of dark dealings and a darker underbelly of forbidden research taking place in the city, some of it approved by the city administrators themselves... Welcome to City L. This is the world of traitors. We open on a typical day. No scenario is afoot, and all scenes are "Free." Take the time to establish your characters and interact with one-another.
