At home in the Upper East Side

Originally funded by five of the wealthiest families in 18th century Britain, the Hellfire Club has existed for centuries as the pinnacle of pleasure and center of sin. Appearing to the outside world as any other high-end club or lounge, the elite members of business or political society know the true spoils of the infamous Hellfire Club. With the most exclusive membership in the world as well as the finest amenities, only those with the deepest of funds and grandest of status gain entry into the first-class club.

After the sun’s setting on the Hellfire Club in Paris, the Manhattan matriarch Valerie Huntington-Whiteley has dawned a new era for the HFC in none other than New York City itself. Located in a private mansion-sized townhouse in the Upper East Side, the address of the aristocratic lounge is known by only a select few. Funded entirely by Ms. Huntington-Whiteley’s own Delacour International and her personal associates, she has taken care to open the new HFC with the same enticing amenities that gave the establishment its illustrious title.

The Inner Circle

In the times of man vs. mutant among many other worldly conflicts, the New York HFC has been opened as more than seen on the surface. Even more selective than the attendance of the club itself is the admittance into the HFC’s Inner Circle, the existence of the secret society being known to only to the world’s foremost aristocratic figures. Built around a monarchical power structure the HFC’s new White Queen has opened the doors to powerful men and mutants alike to join a villainous team where they can work in coexistence for their own personal profit as well as the glory of the Hellfire Club.

Entertainment

Illicit pleasures come at a premium

The club itself provides numerous luxuries for the pleasure of its guests. Live entertainment, exotic dancers, and a fully-stocked bar is open for the taking of any of the establishment’s wealthy guests. A section of the club is reserved for the club’s VIP guests, and is generally preserved for those with a high social status to match a plentiful bank account. The club is monitored by full-time security guards, who are thoroughly trained in combat as well as armed with various high-tech weaponry. Both the upstairs and downstairs of the townhouse are closed off to the public, and are the living quarters as well as meeting place for the Inner Circle.

Rules

  • PM Valerie Huntington for a position in the Inner Circle (the HFC team)
  • No mass destruction of the HFC
  • If your character doesn’t fit into a high-society club, have another reason for being there
  • Sell the guards if you do start a fight
  • No venturing up or downstairs without permission or selling your way there
  • Standard CVU rules
  • Enjoy

Stylishly clad in a luxurious, three-piece, two-button Ermenegildo Zegna Centennial suit, flawlessly augmented by the fashionable aestheticism of an accompanying vest of aristocratic flair followed by the joint inclusion of a captivating silk tie lightly customized by his prominent initials. The presented exemplification of sartorial excellence culminating with elegant cotton-silk, and a collar bar wordlessly speaking volumes of the Knightfall's habitual attire-oriented regalia. The Cultured Catalan's smooth raven hair, recently cut short and close to his head around the back enabling fashionable blending of the sides into the top layers with maintained length for a showcased back sweep and suave presentation further enhancing Andres' intrinsic preference for visual immaculateness, rendering even a single misplaced strand of hair nonexistent. Carrying himself with genetically ingrained panache and mesmeric class, the White King's presence in the high-society club serves as a prominent testament to his enjoyment of the finer aspects of life. Situating himself at the Hellfire Club's bar, Andres requests his most preferred alcoholic beverage, "Johnnie Walker, Blue Label".

Too bad about the stupid wall and tons of monsters in the way...but eventually, we'll meet - I swear it!

@warsman: So excited to get your ass whipped lmao.

@valerie_huntington:

I don't care if I get beaten. For all I know everyone on the outside of the Edge is stronger than me. That just makes me more anxious to climb that wall and see for myself what's on the other side. It doesn't matter if I stumble along the way - I'll stand right back up.

It's all part of being human, right? Never giving up? Just watch - I'm going to climb that wall, and challenge this whole world to a fight!

@valerie_huntington:

"Shi*" the muttered as she looked up from the sink, the black bruise across her chin was not going anywhere, no matter how much makeup she used. Adding a little more concealer she brushed powder across it and looked through her massive wardrobe. Choosing one of her only high necked gowns she slid it over her sleek body and smoothed it down, zipping up the side with careful hands, she stepped into the second layer, the soft satin of the fluffed up underskirt made her smile. Twirling in the mirror she remembered the last time she'd worn it and smiled, thinking of the evening later where it ended up on the floor. Shaking out of that lovely memory she picked up the invite on the table. It was a gala event at the HFC, all the top people in the city had been invited, though she was amazed her invite made it's way too her. Once the cream of the socialite set, her dark path towards redemption and heroic activity lead her away from old friends and routines. It'd been a long time since she'd been given such an invite.

"I hate how paranoid I am sometimes" she spoke to her white fluffy fur ball that rubbed near her dress "Meow" was all she got in reply. Looking down at her watch she hissed and picked up her heels, making one final check of her hair she zipped down to the waiting limousine. Glancing at the door that lead to the garage, she longed for her beautiful new baby roaring under her, but tonight she was to be the belle of the ball, so to speak.

The limousine purred through the city, pushing aside any and all that came near it until it made it's way up to the elegant and prestigious doors of the Hell Fire Club. The night was full of the elite of New York, all being carefully bustled past the paparazzi that hung about near the doors. Warrior guards protected them with nothing more than a stern glance. She watched them through the window, thinking of all the ways they could bring her down before she even moved made her gulp. This was not a place to f*ck around in.

"Miss SaDiablo" the driver was waiting with the door open, she stepped out and was hit with the flash of lights, before they realised she was just a pretty nobody and pulled away towards someone more interesting. Smiling at the greeter she gave her invite and was escorted inside.

@surreal_sadiablo: A story above the steadily growing hum of excitement below her at the HFC's first New York gala event, Valerie Huntington-Whiteley sat motionlessly in her expansive quarters. The Upper East Side socialite, businesswoman, and now White Queen looked expressionlessly at her own reflection inside a vanity that sat fittingly among the many other expensive pieces of furniture within her lavish living quarters, which had been decorated with meticulous care to suit her opulent tastes. A pair of captivating pale blue eyes stared back at her from within the mirror, along with lengthy locks of light blonde hair which fell in glamorous waves around her shoulders. With her hair and makeup already attended to for the night, all that remained for preparation was the elegant white dress laid gently across her bed. Nerves of steel prevented the White Queen from feeling anxious for the HFC's first real premiere as she stood and allowed the thin silk robe, which had previously been tied loosely around her hourglass waist, to fall silently to the cold wooden floor of her room.

Slipping her amorous figure into a custom made Dior dress, the HFC hostesses completed her attire with a pair of white Louboutin pumps that had been laying patiently at the foot of her bed. As a woman of effortless allure, the iconic beauty decided to do without any excessive jewelry for the night, choosing to pair her designer dress with nothing but an understated set of diamond earrings. With one last unreadable glance into her mirror, Valerie set out to make her first major appearance as the White Queen of the Hellfire Club.

Descending the steps leading to the club portion of the Upper East Side townhouse, Valerie found herself surrounded by exactly what she had hoped for. Business leader, political figures, and the social elites from all over the globe had gathered to experience the exclusive entertainment provided by the Hellfire Club. Taking a quick lap around the front entrance to be dazzled by the constant flashing of the paparazzi posted outside the building, Valerie entered her club with all the poise and elegance she was renowned for. Many guests she recognized, many she didn't, but she greeted all with an inviting smile and captivating charm. After finishing her entrance into the aristocratic event, Valerie retreated to the VIP portion of the lounge where she could get a better view of a woman who had previously caught her attention. While her face brought back no particular memories for the White Queen, she knew her name must have made its way onto the guest list, otherwise entrance would have been impossible. Watching the subtly striking woman flow with delicate grace while sipping tenderly on a freshly prepared martini, Valerie's thoughts traveled from pondering who the woman was, to what her intentions were within the Hellfire Club.
