The Hub of the Universe: Details on the city of Boston as it was in the Sixth World before the lockdown pack of ghouls or swarm of bug spirits or some worse. It makes Shadowrun amazing because it really changes the standard I remember, when converting Bug City to PDF in the mid s, having.

On August 22, , following a failed Ares operation to clean up the major hive, insect spirits spread in the city. The Containment Zone was created by destroying several buildings around downtown Chicago and using the debris to create make shift barriers. It is estimated that , people were trapped within the CZ at the time it was erected. The area around the CZ is known as the Corridor. On October 1, , an undercover Ares group infiltraded in to the Cermak Power Plant, near the center of the CZ, to detonate a nuclear bomb.
Just before the explosion, the queen insect spirits finished erecting a powerful magical barrier. The barrier had a strange effect on the Cermak Blast, making the explosion much smaller but the radiation at the source a lot more intense.
The blast knocked the insect spirits around Chicago and put them in a state of torpor. In late December , Shadowland spread to the public information about the presence of insect spirits in Chicago. Acknowledging the end of the threat, the UCAS government lift the quarantine.
Integrating the Zoners people trapped in the CZ with the population of the Chicagolands the area of the wider Chicago megaplex was a daunting task.
This turned the Chicago megaplex into a lawless zone overrun by gangs. By Chicago became an urban hellhole with violent gang turf wars, a large smuggling ring, a high population of SiNless and other societal outcasts.
Despite politicians running on campaigns to clean up and rebuild Chicago, very little came of it. O'Hare Airport was given to the megacorporations, who ensured the airport stayed operational under heavy military control and enforcement.

In recovery of the Calumet port began. However both initiatives came to a sudden halt with Crash 2. After the crash, the Chicago government declared bankruptcy and most officials retired. Neighborhoods Edit A lot of people will tell you the CZ is one big bug mess, with gangs and ghouls thrown in there, too. Well, I'm not going to say anything different. But I am going to tell you that the Yakuza and the Mafia are still doing big biz in The Box even though they are cut off from their contacts on the outside.
And there are the horrid free bug spirits. I don't understand too much about them except the old limitations that bound a bug to the hive mind don't apply to them somehow. And they got more powers, which makes them all the more dangerous! Thankfully, there aren't too many of them, but even one's one too many if you ask me. Thankfully, much of the Strain III drek they sprayed around here killed off many of the bugs and the ghouls.
But the ones that survived are stronger than the rest. So, though we no longer have the sheer volume of creepies to battle, the ones that are left are harder to take down. Also, what you gotta know before you even think about coming in is what's and who's where.
Lincoln Park and Lake View has also become home to many Changelings, so if they freak you out, best reconsider a stay here. Also, many of the Elves here have some ties to their respective Ethnic Mafias.
In many cases, they are the bridge between these Ethnic Mafias and The Ancients. You got to be an African-American Elf. King Vlad one of the meanest, baddest Orks around won't kill you, but he'll make you wish he had. In Hermosa, it's Puerto Rican Troll turf.
The Ork, Dwarf, and Troll neighborhoods tend to be a bit more culturally polarized than the Elf neighborhoods. And in a Filipino Ork ghetto, you're not going to find too many Filipino Trolls.
And if you're down by Chinatown and ain't hooked up with any of the Triads, the Yakuza, or Seoulpa Rings, then you can forget about doin' anything down there. They'd just as soon toss your hoop into the rad crater as deal with you.
Also, there are entire neighborhoods that don't even speak English. Down by S. Wentworth and S. Canal St. Chinese, Korean, Japanese. Some neighborhoods on the Northside, the West Side and in the Noose are strictly Spanish-speaking, and those with the power there know the language.
So, know who you're dealing with before you go in. But with all the Strain III floating around and eating up the dual-natured beings, The Shattergraves aren't that bad of a place to stay now. They're just eerie quiet, no real ghosts or ghouls to speak of any more, thanks to Strain III. Ghoultown's still around, but the population has dropped off dramatically, and is declining as more and more ghouls die off from the Strain III astral virus.
You see, they're dual-natured and are constantly in tune with Astral Space. So they can never stop being vulnerable to Strain III. Resolved issue that caused Armor value to fail to update is some cases.
