Game Recap: Harbor City Afternoon

Harbor City News

News we haven’t made up, really.

Gunfight at Harbor City Prison

One prison guard was killed and several wound this morning when a firefight broke out at Harbor City Prison. An unidentified woman claiming to be a lawyer for the Highway Kings biker gang apparently smuggled several firearms into the prison. Reports are mixed on whether she was attempting to bust the Highway Kings out of prison or kill them. A dozen members of the motor cycle gang were killed as well as a super powered member known by the name White Lines. The super powered biker calling himself Skull that lead the group that took the deputy chief of police hostage on Wednesday, as well as the mystery woman, vanished in the chaos. The police have warrants out for both suspects and anyone with information about the attack or their whereabouts should contact the Harbor City police department. They are considered armed and dangerous.

Giant Robot Attacks School!

Yesterday a giant robot calling itself Omnipotron and claiming to be an alien invading Earth attacked the Jean-Baptiste Lamarck grade school. Despite the Mayor’s announcement and the events of Wednesday and Tuesday several ‘heroes’ arrived to battle the robot as well as the recently formed police Unusual Situations Group. While many children were injured in the incident the only serious injury was to Captain Lewis, commander of the USG. Even with most of his team defeated Captain Lewis was instrumental in bringing down the robot. He is presently hospitalized but reported to be in good condition. The robot turned out not to be an alien invader or a rogue Garibaldi or Goliath Corporation robot but a robot vehicle built and piloted by a local inventor. As a minor the perpetrator’s name is being kept out of the press but sources indicate that the U.S. Army weapons development group is attempting to recruit them in exchange for a commuted sentence. Seahawk, a local professor and part time ‘hero’ was arrested at the scene for vigilantism. His lawyer is arguing that he was just pulling children to safety and that his actions fall under Good Samaritan laws. Also identified at the scene were masked vigilante The Confessor and Bitch Seat, wanted in connection to a series of homicides related to biker gangs.

Deputy Police Chief out of Intensive Care

The deputy chief of police was released from intensive care this morning, though he still remains hospitalized. The deputy chief was one of fifteen people held hostage at Anne’s Restaurant on Wednesday. Only two cooks managed to escape the situation unharmed. The other hostages were hospitalized with the deputy chief and four others, including two children, critically wounded. Members of the Highway Kings biker gang lead by two super powered individuals calling themselves Skull and White Lines took the hostages demanding the release of their fellow gang members in exchange. Several members of the Highway Kings had been arrested Tuesday in a gunfight and firebombing of a bank in downtown Harbor City. This was the first test of Mayor Pennywise’s new Unusual Situations Group, a team of veteran police officers equipped with high technology weapons donated to the city by the Garibaldi Corporation. Unfortunately several ‘heroes’ lead by the Brick intervened and almost brought down the building resulting in hostages being shot and buried under rubble. After the incident, the Brick and well known ‘hero’ the Ultimate turned themselves over to the police.

The Brick Recants Actions as Vigilante

Today the ‘hero’ known to the nation for decades as The Brick spoke before a crowd at city hall announcing his retirement. “After many conversations with Mayor Pennywise I have come to agree with him and regret my actions as a vigilante,” said the Brick. “People with powers should pursue less dangerous activities. Put their abilities to good use in trades like construction.” The Brick apologized to the people of Harbor City and the hostages harmed by his actions and their families. He said that he was giving up vigilantism and encouraged others to do so. “If you have to continue fighting crime, please take up the mayor’s offer and get police training,” he implored his fellow ‘heroes’. According to counsel the Ultimate, also arrested after Wednesday’s incident, will fight the charges. A nationwide letter writing campaign by the Ultimate’s fans is already underway.
