Prominence, SC Session 6 – Through a Glass Darkly (Part 1)


Six months have passed since Irish’s Mob was decapitated; the body is slowly dying. The companies Irish controlled are under investigation. His soldiers are scattered, his assets seized. In its place is a criminal power vacuum.

Gangs are on the rise, across the city. The South Side Boys, the 843, and the Lords of Sin are vying for control of Prominence, and the city’s citizens are suffering for it.

With new crime, however, arise new challengers. The Olympian is gone, but his friends remain. They are joined by mysterious new vigilantes. Prominence groans under the weight of war.

Side Chatter


  • Matt – The Wraith.   Got his Masters in Electrical Engineering with a minor in acoustic design.  10 years back, shortly after beginning employment, his father was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease.  He got himself checked out and found out that he’s also positive for Hereditary Huntington’s.  With nothing to live for and nothing to lose, he decided to take down the mob before he died. That was great until he messed up.  Bad.  Now, he is a man with no name.  He works odd jobs under strange names and heads around town leaving notes, making sure that everyone knows they’re not alone in this city.
  • Manda – Lacey Clark (The Ghost). Seemingly apathetic, though very bright and goal oriented. Lacey gets bored with life extremely fast, looking for thrills to make life worth living. She entered the hero game after hearing stories on her mother’s news reports.  Agile and good with a gun, terrifying to lay your eyes on in a dark alleyway.
  • Nate – Aaliyah Rhodes (The Witch). Broken, socially cautious, and relaxed. Aaliyah is a Heinz 57 of social disorders. Her inability to feel bad about justified murder could label her a sociopath.  Upon the resurgence of masks in Prominence, Aaliyah, known by Walker’s men as “The Witch,” fashioned a suit and mask for herself, and used any excuse available to meet these masks — people she instantly idolized.  With her former boss no longer in power.
  • Sam – Mark Getman, (Clockwork). A tall man in a black coat and tails, topped with a black top hat. His chest is covered in a leather vest strewn with gears and cogs and brass filligrees, with a mask to match and a walking cane in hand. He is as absurd as he is mysterious, an enigma wrapped in an exploding mystery.
  • Zach – Arraveous “Rave” Varren (Opera). A thrillseeking vigilante in a cheap suit and comedy mask.  He works the south side of the city and enjoys beating up gang members.  Despite having quite a mouth he prefers to stay out of the public eye.

    Also, you guys are rad, and you should feel rad.

    At first I thought it a little strange that Ghost and Witch couldn’t guess at, like a Flashbang or something, but then I learned it was Clockwork rending spacetime apart and it collapsing in on itself, which is way cooler.

  2. Loved the story, Loved the characters, and loved the ending. Looks like things are heating up for our beloved heroes!!!

    Also NOOOO!!! Wraith we need you to lead these fools toward greatness!! Go find a doctor, get your medicine, and get back on the streets to punching bad guys!
