The State of Los Angeles Address

The Los Angeles where this campaign begins is not the Los Angeles of the present day. Not quite.

In 2007, the popular Mayor Louis Abershan was implicated in the murder of his legal adviser, and sent to federal prison. Following the incident, two mayors entered office and were promptly assassinated by two unassociated groups in what is now known as "The Week Of Red Revenge". Finally, the state government decided to place a popular in the Mayor's chair as a figurehead and to begin a crusade against the malcontents which form Los Angeles. A half-elven actor, Mayor Rupert L. S. Kenansin took his seat in May of 2007 and immediately the state transferred several divisions of the National Guard in.

The Guard and local LAPD met with stiff resistance. Wishing to avoid Federal intervention, the Governor put Los Angeles on a staggered zone protection program. Even now, groups manipulated by the state wage war upon the underground society of Los Angeles every week or so. You, the PCs, have been contracted to work for the state in the interests of clearing a small water-front sector... in small ways, of course. Andrine is no puppet.

There are a few main issues with Los Angeles...

1. The division of wealth.
2. Proximity to the sea.
3. Proximity to fault lines.
4. The religious right.
5. The gang sub-culture.
6. Bloody poor leadership.

Anybody who wishes to do anything in L.A. needs to keep these in mind.
