Default Re: [Supers] GURPS Unofficial Handbook to the Marvel Universe, Reboot Edition


Located near Central Park in New York City, the mansion used as the headquarters of the infamous Hellfire Club was built during the early 17th Century by English noblemen fleeing the English Civil War as a location for the American Colonial elite to mingle in a manner the English nobles were used to but were unlikely to see in England with Cromwell's Puritans in charge (see Hellfire Club). Over the centuries, the mansion was renovated and expanded several times.

The mansion is four stories tall with a cupola on the roof. The Club employs a butler, several maids, a handful of groundskeepers, and other maintenance techs to keep the mansion running, and has chefs and wait staff on retainer for their parties. Security is provided by mercenaries contracted through Donald Pierce's private military companies (see White Bishop).

Ground Floor
This floor is the most public floor of the entire building. The whole center area has been converted to a gathering hall where the parties are held; the mansion's original two-floor library still exists on the north side, and is reserved for the Inner Circle's private meetings. The mansion's kitchen area is on the south side.

Second Floor
This floor is primarily a balcony overlooking the main gathering hall. The second floor of the library is accessible from this floor as well. Above the kitchen sits an office reserved for the reigning King of the Club, currently used by Sebastian Shaw (see Black King).

Third and Four Floors
These floors are bedroom suites primarily used by guests for "private encounters" by Club members during the parties.

As might be expected, the mansion's basement contains the typical features one would expect to find for such an establishment: hot water heaters, pantry space for canned goods, and the wine cellar. The south side of the basement area has been adapted to a parking garage and loading dock for the kitchen and mansion's staff. The north side houses a mainframe for the Inner Circle and networked to computers in the library above it; this mainframe has many of the Club's secrets stored on it, but is a closed system not accessible from outside the mansion.

Not sure how else to describe this place; there's really nothing special in the mansion itself. If I had any artistic talent or a floorplan program, I'd probably be adding a floorplan, like those of the Avengers Mansion, Avengers Compound, and X-Men Mansion in the old OHOTMUDEs.
