Detailed Overview

Late 2018:

  • Wilson Fisk is arrested after a reign of terror in New York City.
  • Frank Castle nearly eradicates the Dogs of Hell, Mexican Cartel, and Kitchen Irish in a revenge mass killing after his wife and two children are murdered in Central Park.
  • The Blacksmith — a up and comer in the drug trade in New York City and Gotham City — is killed.
  • The Demon Invasion hits New York City, and is particularly devastating to the already weakened and half-destroyed Hell's Kitchen; a new gang rises up in the Kitchen called the Hellraisers — men and women who drove off the demons in various corners of the neighborhood and now wear the bones and skulls as armor.
  • Mary Trout — longtime resident and respected community member of Hell's Kitchen — speaks out against gang violence as the Hellraisers and other newly-formed gangs throughout Hell's Kitchen and Chelsea start butting heads. Trout plans Councilman Jennings lack of control on the situation and lazy NYPD officers for allowing the violence to continue.
  • Gotham companies begin to buy up vacant properties once owned by Wilson Fisk.
  • Jennings's Christmas Ball is attacked by Hellraisers that appear to be pumped up by some weird kind of drug that gives them incredible, but still unstable strength.
  • Jennings steps down after the Ball, leading to an emergency interim appointment and the Mayor to call on an emergency election to choose a new councilperson for the opened spot.

How to Get Involved

  • Gang crime is on the rise across Manhattan as gangs that had been fragmented, shattered, and almost eradicated come together to create new groups with a greater penchant for violence. Vigilantes have more opportunities to fight aggressive crime throughout the boroughs of Manhattan.
