It was a rehearsed and over used cliche, but that wasnt to say it lacked in its visual potency. One by one a string of all black, moderately bullet proof luxury sedans fell into formation alongside the curb outside the ScS. The calling card of the San'Vun Syndicate.
Metro City had never held much interest to the Voice Unheard. Or at least that had been true up until the secret sanctorum had become publicly known.

This was it. The one true book that could help the Voice Unheard unearth the greatest treasure the World had never known. A book of maps. A book of legend. A book of, the Last Dragons...
