District Invasion

As if the numerous troublesome gangs weren’t enough, outside parties often invite themselves to the woe of the inhabitants.

Gargoyles from the Folly

There’s many clutches of gargoyles living among the Folly’s dizzying heights. They’re very territorial and constantly at each other’s throats. They mostly keep to their high above ground perches but recently, the Covellites gargoyles, under pressure by an alliance of Realgars and Pyrites, have started making forays into the Harlequin.

Thrill-seeking Enclave Elves

Boredom can be a powerful driving force, suffer a couple of centuries of it and I’m sure you’ll agree. A manifestation of this is expressed by those elven interlopers going for a stroll in the “bad neighborhood”. Most of the time, such a group is escorted by hired arms and the elves themselves are comically clad with antique (and mostly useless) armors.  Less often, these Enclave Elves want to really test themselves and get some action. Some are actually quite good at it.

Kwaggers from… the Kwag

Be they of any races, kwaggers are kwaggers. Crazy, violent slum people who don’t even seem to want to better their lives. But then, the Kwag is literally a nexus of bad energy. Folks who live there don’t stay sane very long. Sometimes things spill out, a gate gets destroyed or a levy-bridge breaks, slamming down, and the Kwaggers swarm over, howling and clawing like madmen.

Monstrous City: Beholders

dredd_its_the_law

Eyes everywhere (law enforcement)

It’s called The Sanction. It truly is monstrous, literally. The “policemen” are beholders. A Sheriff beholder enforce the law in the area, with a cohort of lesser spectator beholders under his baleful supervision.

Meet your sheriff

Origin

Many beholders were brought  under the rule of the Third Tyrant. A terrifying force they were. And loyal to him. When the City freed itself from the yoke of the Third, it was decided in a special assembly that the  beholders would still serve: the power of law! A bold idea, to say the least. Now, the slimy monsters roams the streets, waiting for an opportunity to punish crime-doers.

Law enforcement

Incorruptible (or are they?), the beholders have many powers that helps them bring down criminals. They use charm person to compel unhelpful people. They’re reaaally good at intimidating, no surprise there. The Sheriff sees through the eyes of his spectators and can send reinforcements anywhere that needs it. He can also spy inside houses, magically popping a eyed-tentacle from the walls and ceilings.

Crimes

the list of crimes in Legacy is very short.

  • Murder (attempted murder is not)
  • Identity theft
  • Property deed fraud
  • Burglary
  • Home invasion
  • Arson
  • Restricted weapon possession
  • Trespassing
  • Criminal mischief

Apprehending

If a spectator beholder witnesses a crime (they patrol without rest) or sent after someone reported a crime, they will try to arrest the crime-doer, softening him up with eye rays if he resists. Too much resistance or a botched arrest leads to a death warrant from the sheriff. Arrested criminals are sent to Detention Island, the prison under the care of the Sphynx Warden, whom even the beholders are afraid of.
