Detailed Overview

LENA ZELLE - who is not in any way HARLEY QUINN in disguise - has just opened a new club in downtown Gotham. Open six nights a week for ballroom dance or comedy nights, the club is a fun retro 1920s joint that is sure to be a popular hot spot!

Wait. Six nights a week? Why would the club close on Mondays?

Because Monday night is the secret FIGHT NIGHT in the basement, of course! But it's not Lena that calls the shots there. Oh, no.

It's someone with an even better sense of humor.


How to Get Involved

  • Do you have a character who would want to work for the club's proper looks-good-on-paper upstairs?
  • Are you a character with an itch to fight?
  • Are you a player who has an itch to fight, but needs proper motivation?
  • Do you just need a great place to party that could very well backfire on you?

Do you really just want in on this SUPER AWESOME PLOT ACTION and need help finding a hook?

Speak to the Joker or Harley Quinn in-game, or drop us an @mail! We'll be glad to help you!
