"It is hopeless for the occasional visitor to try to keep up with Chicago. She outgrows his prophecies faster than he can make them." - Mark Twain, 1883
Chicago... It’s your kind of town. It’s the Windy City that’s packed with tourist attractions and underground dangers. It’s the kind of town that can save your life or take it with a wink and a wiggle of a hip. Its history told stories of good guys and bad, people came to this town to see where famous people were shot and speakeasys once housed. It's history dark and haunted, the blood of the soulless seeped into the towns streets and mixed in next to the hot dog vendors that peddled the best. It was a city of chaos and order; it both contradicted and complimented itself. The girls ran hot and cold and the men liked to turn the taps.
There are a million things to see and do in Chicago. Tourist attractions, sporting facilities….. and much more.
The city had a mob force stronger than any other city in the America. Its current round up is led by a force of nature called Roberto Moran. The man with a thousand bodies in his wake, and a smile that could make a panther, roll over and purr. His personal business touches many areas of the city and his hand stretches into every department of justice. He's left alone because he brings order to the city, controlling the underground world with an iron fist, he keeps squabbles within his reach and never allows innocents to be caught up in his business dealings.
(The mob force is strong and under my ooc/npc control, if you wish to join or have a character be part of it, let me know)

Orcs, Elves, fairies, goblins and other creatures of the world that shimmer, reside below, along with the vampires, werewolves and any other creature based in Chicago.
