"Perched under" ...?

I'd be a lot more willing to believe it's a Secret Society that "blends into the shadows" of society, but more in the upper middle class sense than in the criminal fringes sense.

I'm not sure if this one

I'm not sure if this one shouldn't be called "What you Don't know about The Regency."

You don't know if The Regency ever existed. You don't know if certain people are not part of The Regency. You don't know if The Regency has ever done anything. You don't know if The Regency is Blue, or Red, or Gold, or Grey in outlook. All you know is they might be called The Regency and they might be out there...

Perhaps The Stig is a founding member?

Be Well!

I miss the stories, they may not have been very informative but I found them very interesting. Plus I think they were good practice for mission design.

If you get the Regency elf

If you get the Regency elf mad she'll spread lies about you
She once told everyone that Cerebus wee wees in the sink
She wrote it on the walls of the Regency Hotel, and over the town gate.

I do have to wonder if nobody

I do have to wonder if nobody knows about the Regency because they're very good at keeping secrets or because, at the moment, it is nothing more than, "Oh, are those Montgomery children going to hold another 1920s themed seance party? My little Shelley adores those." In other words, might this be a case of a villain group that grows with the game rather than coming with the game fully assembled?

I always think back to that movie, The Shadow, where none of the people were aware that an empty lot was actually a hotel. :<

Art is busy working on art for the game...we'd rather have them working on that than making art for updates that aren't theirs. Once there's art appropriate to the update, we will happily use it...

The stories are still there, but people requested to get more RPG manual style information as well. There's a new installment of the "Tales of" series coming next month.

Highrise...Brownstone...I suppose the difference is negligible... :P

Maybe it's the numbing

Maybe it's the numbing headache from my eye infection, but this group write up felt kind of bland to me. Just another hidden, super-secret arcane group of spellcasters, maybe, if they exist at all.

Since you've got the whole spiritualist connection thing going on, how about a super secret arcane group of summoners who summon ghosts and nightmare apparitions, paralyze their victims with fear, drive them mad with horrific illusions, and are prone to attacking through walls or around corners. Maybe they even use shadows for portals and can suddenly appear from the shadows cast by large buildings, trees, or anything that casts a large enough shadow.

As I read it, the current write up sounds like a garden club that does scary card tricks for Halloween parties.

or they can be the illuminate kind where most "know" that they exist and they have a very large influence on the world around us but no one can actually prove any it, not even their existence. Not every group has to be that visible or even be fully fleshed out at the start of the game.

Or it might just be a Nemesis plot to make you think they exist.

Note that the information we

Note that the information we've been provided about The Regency isn't that far divergent from the background setup of The Midnight Squad.

Then, for a REAL kick in the (lore heavy) pants ... consider THIS ...

Quote:

Shadow Earth is Black Swan's personal dimension. She created it using similar methods that the Midnight Squad created the Shadow Shard to imprison Rulaaru.

Wait. What?!?

Quote:

Rularuu the Ravager menaced Paragon City back in the roaring '60s. Luckily, before his interdimensional plundering could properly commence, Rularuu was defeated by a group of superheroes. In an ironic coup de grace, the Midnight Squad trapped Rularuu in an otherworldly prison called the Shadow Shard, where he’s been stewing ever since. There is some rumor that the Dream Doctor and Rularuu are connected somehow.

In other words, don't be too quick to discount Secret Societies of Sorcerers and Mystics (SSoSaM) ...
