Campaign of the Month: November 2014
Shadowrun - The Rat's Nest
The Funhouse are a group of highrise buildings right in the middle of the Redmon Barrens. They belong to Glæra who has turned them into a very successful social housing project. The people there have created a community that offers anything from work to entertainment to programs for drug addicts, even a small medical ward. The community also offers support and education for anyone who is Awakened or seems to have magical potential.
There are rumours that children have been kidnapped by the Funhouse people, but that has been years ago and nothing ever came of it. Neil however has had a talk with one of those kids: his parents were drug addicts and he has been saved by the Funhouse and was offered not only a new life, but also the chance to built up his magical talent.
The Funhouse also has its own currency, Crimson Gold (their gang is called the Crimson Guard) and with it, you can buy things dirt cheap at the shops and bazaars of the Funhouse. Other money isn’t worth anything at the Funhouse and slowly, Crimson Gold is spreading through the Barrens. The money contains RFID chips and can be tracked.
People living at the Funhouse:
Yeah, it all looks awesome. I really don’t have a good reason for this, but I for one am going to keep away from the Funhouse if I can. And from Crimson Gold, but that won’t be possible once word gets around how much it buys there. It’s just all too good to be true. I’m going to remind you that I said so when Glæra fucks us all over. – Neil
