Fin : The Game - Antipositional - Despite recent pushes by those struggling within the city to free it from its bonds, there are still certain points of contention within the faltering lockdown zone. One of these? The Southtown airport, effectively keeping anyone from entering or leaving the city of Southtown by way of air. Rather than let the city -- and his potential ticket out -- be strangled to death, Ken Masters has come to liberate the airport by force. Yet the pure American capitalist fury of Ken Masters will find itself challenged by the cold presence of his resistance -- the Shadaloo Dolls Juni and Decapre, tasked with the continued protection of one of the invading forces most valued assets.

Throughout the conflicts, this grip has held; the Black Noah remains as a symbol of oppression and the heavy concentration of 'R' operatives lingering at the docks of the harbor. But there are those who would refuse to allow such tyrannical constrictions to continue -- and those who would have vengeance for the precious lives they treasured that Rugal had brutally tore away from them.

Drawn to Marise like a moth to a flame, the monk-trained girl finds more there than she expected in the form of Maeda, the Faceless One. The scythe weilding assassin almost completely destroys Nataya, with the only thing standing in Marise's way being Aranha, who is there primarily to statisfy his own vendettas.

Established after the failed YFCC takeover, it has been a location used for conducting research, preying upon the denizens of Southtown to subject them to inhumane experiments, and pushing the limits of technology in an unholy communion of NESTS and SIN science.

But with enough help on the outside drawing off forces... and the right people brave enough or crazy enough to go into the heart of the base, the impossible might become possible... - created on 14:49:27 05/23/2009 by Rust and last modified on 17:31:30 05/26/2009.

Fin : Classic Choi v Crystal Choi: The Taste Test - Out looking for a way to make a quick buck, and maybe a name for herself in the chaos that is Southtown, Malin stumbles across Choi. Perhaps inevitably, the two swift fighters soon engage in a terrifying battle of speed and skill, but, the question remains: Which will come out on top as the real fan favorite? Sweet-but-Sour and somewhat questionable Malin, or the downright milk-curdling pervertedness that is Choi? One thing is for certain. Whoever comes out on top, is there really any way ANYONE involved in this can be a winner? - created on 15:03:00 05/24/2009 by Malin and last modified on 01:40:53 05/26/2009. Cast: Choi and Malin.

The measure of many individuals is taken by how much they're willing to give up, how far they're willing to go, for their ideals. Kula, Jiro, Alma, Frei... four individuals with their own ideals and their own willingness to sacrifice for the greater good.

While Blue Mary comes with the many others seeking to dismantle Geese Howard and his Syndicate once and for all, she must find herself dealing with not only the presence of the equally vicious forces of NESTS and Shadaloo led up by the deadly assassin Cammy, but the tonfa-wielding third-in-command of the Southtown Syndicate, the Chrome-Dome Don, Mr. Big in the most vicious of threeways.
