In the center of town on the south side of the bridge where no gang claims the territory, stands a new building ready to open it's doors to the citizens of Sunberth. Just like any other tavern that one may walk into, patrons are met with dim lighting, tables to sit at, drinks and food to fill their bellies, and a bard that sings the occasional tune. But for those seeking to start a life of making a name for one's self might visit the establishment for the large wooden board by the bartender with a plethora of papers plastered over it. This is known as "J.B" or the Job Board. A board where gangs, factions, and citizens alike post jobs for anyone to take a nab at whether it be freelancers, those looking for some extra miza, or someone looking to start a name for themselves. Jobs are on a first come first serve basis, ranging from simple tasks to complex missions and even a few false ads made by rival gangs to ambush unsuspecting enemies. Anyone is welcome to the establishment and the board no matter their affiliation, hence why the building was built in unclaimed territory.

Lana Steel

Socialization: 56
Persuassion: 42
Intelligence: 73
Dagger: 50

The owner of the tavern, Lana Steel's small frame and soft eyes would make one think that this woman would not be capable of running a tavern that could cater to every rival gang in Sunberth without fail, but those that know Lana for whom she really is could tell just how dangerous the woman can get. Generally a nice and kind person until tempered, Lana isn't like most tavern owners that sit back and watch the miza roll in. Lana prefers to be up close and personal, almost always in the common areas of the tavern acting as a mere waitress passing out food and drinks to customers that she comes across, gather information and knowledge of the city. After her father's untimely death, she inherited the building now known as "No Man's Land" as well as a small fortune and turned it into the place it is today. Most people think she opened the tavern in an attempt to bring the peace within the gangs of Sunberth, others say she did it so she could have eyes and ears in every gang that brings their business in her tavern. One thing is known for sure though, if anyone comes in looking to start trouble, they can expect the short framed woman to put them in their place if not have her muscle bound friend throw them out.

Bodybuilding: 87
Unarmed Combat: 74
Intimidation: 68
Cooking: 65

Long time friend, guard, and bartender of the No Man's Land tavern, Carston is a man that lives a simple life. Having seen a many of great battles in his lifetime, Carston or rather Hammer to those that can call him a friend can be found in the tavern either cooking up a meal to be served to a customer, or relaxign at the counter giving advice to travelers looking to start a name for themselves at the job board. Though he has a humble and relaxed personality, sometimes accepting challenges from those wanted to test his strength with arm wrestling and weight lifting contests, he won't hesitate to wrap his large muscles around the neck of anyone who threatens Lana or the tavern. Unlike the owner and his friend, Carston has no affiliation with any of the gangs of Sunberth.

Things has finally slowed enough for Jia to settle in one place for what could be a while. This was something she had prayed for ever since she met Victor and his “scientists”. Now Victor was dead and she was finally free from her oppressor. Jia wanted nothing more than to find something that could be her home, her sanctuary. A place where there was no violence and finally no killing.

She looked down at her hands balling them into a fits, digging her into her palms. No... she would not have to hurt anyone ever again. Jia pushed her short brunette hair behind her ear and she looked up against the sun. She stood about 5’4 but she could tell she was very athletic even though she was wearing dingy gray sweats with a simple black tank top and a black leather jacket to cover her arms. She walked forward her black boots crunching the gravel underneathe her feet.

Sunberth was the first town she came to when she did the jump and now it seemed she was going to be stuck here for a minute. Her green eyes traveled down to the watch that was strapped on her right wrist. It was square and bulky; instead of numbers it displayed a black screen with a jagged crack down the screen. She tapped it with the tip of her pointer finger and still nothing.

“What a hell of a way to leave Vincent” Jia mumbled under her breath.

Jia continued to walk on coming up to her destination. According to the people of the town there was a Tavern that was basically in a nuetral territory. The rival gangs were pretty bad in the area so it was best to be informed about where she could and couldn’t go just to keep a low profile. Jia didn’t want anyone asking questions because that normally meant that she would have to deliver some answer, and her delivery normally didn’t involve talking.

She pushed through the big double doors to be greeted by a cool and open atmosphere. It feel good to enter some cold air because the day was starting to warm up. Jia smiles a bit as she came to bartender quickly putting a finger in the air for one bear. Jia swiveled around to survey the place quickly before turning her green eyes on the bartender. With her right hand she reached in her back pocket and placed some bills on the counter that she had previously stolen while in town.

Jia grabbed her mug and walked to the nearest booth and slide right in. She tossed her head back taking the mug with her and down have the glass in one gulp. The woman belched loudly as she nodded in appreciation. “So this is a vacation?” Jia thought to herself with a smirk. She hadn’t had one of those since 11. That was the last time she had felt normal, and now she wasn’t sure if she could ever feel a sense of normalcy again. Shaking her head she sipped the mug this time letting the beer slide down her throat. Y
