Kings Row at


Kings Row is an industrial and residential area far past its prime. Most of the buildings date from before the Great Depression, and show it. The citizens of Kings Row mostly work at low-paying manufacturing jobs in old-fashioned factories like the King Garment Works. The living conditions are barely above tenement quality.

In recent years Kings Row has seen some new development, and shows signs of pulling out of its decades-long slump. However, progress is held back by the Skulls, the gang that makes this area its primary turf. Other criminal organizations active in Kings Row include the Vahzilok, the Clockwork, the Circle of Thorns, the Trolls and the Lost. Heroes of security levels 5 through 10 will find plenty of challenges in the back alleys of Kings Row.
