During the infamous Night of Rage, thousands of Metahumans died in the fires that broke out on he docks of the Tacoma waterfront. After the riots, the survivors decided to erect a monument to those who died. What the Ork and Dwarf sculptors created was the Crying Wall, a somber tableau 20 meters long and 6 meters high that commemorates the night's terrible events. It is a powerful work of art. The public is invited to view the wall, though the informal contigent of Ork guards will tolerate no slights, real or unintended, from Human visitors.
Located in the basement of the Bickson Building near the waterfront, the Crying Wall is a monument to the metahumans who died during the Night of Rage. Twenty meters long and six meters high, the wall is a bas-relief sculpture carved by ork and dwarf artists that depicts the events of that terrible night. Because it stands at one of the entrances to the Ork Underground, the orks consider the wall part of the Underground and guard it day and night. There is a stand in the building lobby where John Q. Public can buy a ticket for three nuyen, and an escort will take you down to the wall and answer any questions. Because the Underground tunnels opening off the Bickson entrance are mostly in their original state, this entrance is not open to the public.
>>>>>[People who figure out the right “toll” for the orks on guard can use the Bickson entrance. It connects to the maze of old sewer tunnels and storm drains under downtown Tacoma, which stretch up into the Downtown District and include some of the tunnels into which escaping metahumans fled during the Night of Rage.]<<<<<
>>>>>[Some of those old tunnels along the waterfront are still haunted by the ghosts of metahumans killed on that night. They’re terrifying to look at—most of them are horribly burned, and they despise humans. If you’re a norm, you’d best stay away from those parts of the Underground. Even the metas don’t go there, because some of the ghosts hate all living things. The atmosphere of hate and rage has tainted astral space in the area too, making it difficult to assense anything down there.]<<<<<
