Uproar – Taunts

12th October 2012

The Uproar Arena became a popular talking point for the already disheartened and downtrodden public. They began to root for and support their favourite gangs, and even individual participants. The gangs embraced their new found fame and power, with some gangs becoming overnight celebrities. They no longer fought to settle their differences, but instead to command maximum respect from other gangs and receive the public’s adoration.

Taunting during battle became a great way to showboat after a good kill or simply as a means of disrespecting your opponent.

Uproar – The Inventory

9th October 2012

Troika has many global brands to its name – Magnitude Industries, Grilla Gunz and OPS Munitions being its three foremost. It made perfect sense, therefore, to provide the competitors of the Uproar Arena with a full selection of these weapons to choose from; including several familiar melee weapons that gang members would have used on the streets. Troika wanted to make their weapons as accessible as possible, so they chose to offer them in three forms: for purchase, rental and gifting. Due to collaborative nature of Uproar, gifting items to fellow gang members is encouraged by Troika and actually works out cheaper. Troika’s intentions here, whilst appearing to benefit the people, were always underlined by greed.

Additionally, Troika began to fuel the participants with their extreme genetic enhancement Serums from sister company, Troika Laboratories. These Serums give participants short bursts of super strength, speed and other incredible abilities.

Participants are also given the option to wear a wide variety of gang representative clothing, displaying their chosen allegiance with pride and style.

Lockwood’s Halloween Clothing 2012

8th October 2012

The Lockwood Halloween Extravaganza continues this week with a new range of Halloween costumes from Fool Throttle. Creepy costumes have been done to death, so Fool Throttle’s created outfits with a twist around the theme of a hot Halloween Beach Party. Choose your favourite Fool Throttle character or create your own by mixing and matching.

Damon Allburn is a devilishly handsome singer who sold his soul in exchange for fame. Invisible Keith used to just be Keith, a happy-go-lucky surfer, until he got sucked into a mysterious whirlpool and when it spat him back onto the beach, things had changed! Felicia is a fashion-conscious feline who’s generally pretty laid back and enjoys reclining in the sunlight. Ella Vam Pire isn’t interested in pallid complexions and draughty crypts like the rest of her family, so she’s headed to the beach to work on her tan instead. Last, but not least, there’s Skelly Kelly. Kelly isn’t undead and doesn’t have supernatural powers, she’s just a friendly, fun-loving girl who enjoys hanging out at the beach with her unusual friends, showing off her macabre fashion sense.

Uproar – Arenas

2nd October 2012

After successfully dividing the people, Troika had regained control; but this didn’t solve all of their problems. Violence between these new gangs escalated in the streets and began to cause issues for the general population. Instead of attempting to crush these now individually weaker gangs and risk reuniting them under a common goal, Troika decided to try a different approach. They embraced the gang wars and positively encouraged them by building the Uproar Arena – a custom built location for combat, situated within an abandoned power station. Troika even provided the gangs with numerous, often experimental, weaponry and biology-altering Serums to fuel their feuds.

It quickly became apparent that the Arena alone would not be sufficient to house all of the contestants and new, makeshift arenas had to be set up in other locations. The Action District became a popular place to fight as it replicated the street environment that most of the gang members were used to. Continue reading
