Targets for Villians

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if the refs had any basic locations for villians to hit. Specifically, I'm looking for visting exhibitions of priceless jewerly or artifacts somewhere in the city. Museums as well as Auctions would also make great targets for the average villian to hit. I've seen one villian hit a casino and a few other but there doesn't seem to be any large scale targets for heists.

To get one started, would I simply need to start a thread? Could I create such a situation and have my villian simply succeed for the first few times to get a reputation started in the city? If so, how many heists could he pull before he started to attract too much attention?

Well, this is a lot of different questions, but I'll try to get to as many as possible.

First off, the Freedom City book is a very good investment if you intend to play on this board. Not indispensable, but it's outrageously useful for the price. Inside, there's literally hundreds of locations which would be fine targets for a heist. (Speaking of which, trying looking at the "Heist" thread in the North End, Downtown.) Here's a few choice locales:

1. Haas Brothers Jewelers. A local chain of stores. Try the Riverside area in Downtown.

2. ASTRO Labs. Technical Research Institute. Very high security, but very big payoff. In North End, Downtown.

3. Freedom City Historical Museum. It's a museum. Rob it. In Midtown, Downtown.

You could simply start a thread, but you might have to "advertise" to get a hero to step in. And yes, you could simply say you robbed a low to mid security place. Somewhere like ASTRO labs would be a different story, though. As for reputation, if you pull it off right, as any good thief should, (but that's boring, right? :) ) you won't get one. But there are heroes out there that don't need to catch you in the act to catch you. Take Foreshadow, a hero in the Freedom City book, for example. He's got precognition. I think a couple other heroes have special senses that would help them out there.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll be looking into a lot of that. I have access to the 1st ed of Freedom City so that should help a lot.

So it's safe to say that the normal supers are also in town as well? Okay, I'll have to check up on who they are.

I wonder, could it be possible for a Ref to put up a thread somewhere that lists the established heroes and villians in the city for easy reference? Would help people pull in Npcs a lot better.

I'll also take your advice and look into the various locations and starting my own thread. We'll see how it goes from there.

Hey MBCE, good post :)

We've begun putting up Freedom City heroes on an 'as needed' basis here. We'll try and get more up soon - I'll do some when I get back.

Look forward to you terrorising Freedom City!
