 The monstrous Other side of the supergenius Viktor Archeville emerges in full, rendering his better half nearly powerless. Thus unleashed, Archeville attempts to take over the world with the tainted Atlanteans known as Deep Ones, Grue modified to possess many of the powers held by the Interceptors called Metaceptors,​ and the arising of the true monster that has lain hidden in Archeville'​s family line causes outbreaks of madness and riots across the globe! The monstrous Other side of the supergenius Viktor Archeville emerges in full, rendering his better half nearly powerless.

 On the heels of the chaos of Archeville, the silencing paralysis of order comes in the form of The Gorgon, an immense creature built  by the Preservers, ancient sowers and uplifters of life throughout the galaxy. She comes in the form of an immense woman'​s head ringed with gigantic serpents, with the intent of coating the Earth and all on it, in it and under it with nanites that shall freeze it in indestructible stasis. While some take to the sky, space or other worlds in search of answers to the looming question, many others must remain on the ground and try to either soothe the panicked citizenry who know all too well how fragile their situation is, or evacuate them to worlds the Gorgon is not. On the heels of the chaos of Archeville, the silencing paralysis of order comes in the form of The Gorgon, an immense creature built  by the Preservers, ancient sowers and uplifters of life throughout the galaxy.

 A madman has unleashed a mutagen throughout Freedom City, granting everyone superpowers,​ or making existing superpowers go haywire. ​ Worse, the mutagen will burn out a person'​s body in about two months. ​ To contain the spread, the government quarantines the city, so it's up to the local heroes to both contain the newly empowered citizens (many of whom have gone mad with power) and cure them before their bodies burn out! A madman has unleashed a mutagen throughout Freedom City, granting everyone superpowers,​ or making existing superpowers go haywire. ​ Worse, the mutagen will burn out a person'​s body in about two months. ​ To contain the spread, the government quarantines the city, so it's up to the local heroes to both contain the newly empowered citizens (many of whom have gone mad with power) and cure them before their bodies burn out!

 As either part of a plot by some sort of criminal mastermind (August Roman is always a safe bet) or just a string of really bad luck, the heroes of Freedom City end up experiencing trials throughout the month that take them to the limit. ​ Of course, the hero rises again, bruised, battered, but not broken. As either part of a plot by some sort of criminal mastermind (August Roman is always a safe bet) or just a string of really bad luck, the heroes of Freedom City end up experiencing trials throughout the month that take them to the limit. ​ Of course, the hero rises again, bruised, battered, but not broken.

 +
 +==January 2013==
 +[[http://​www.freedomplaybypost.com/​topic/​6667-january-and-february-vignette-day-of-wrath|Day of Wrath]]
 +
 +On January 15, 2013 at 9 AM EST, a wave of violence sweeps through the heroes and villains of Freedom City, without regard for who and what they might once have been before. Some seem to go mad, laughing manically as they fall on their enemies alike like a rabid wolf gone among the sheep, driving some of Freedom City's worst to take shelter from the best gone evil. Some stalk their enemies with cruel, predatory intent. Their acts are showy and terrifying, sending the civilians in the street running in fear from their erstwhile protectors and criminals alike. Though deaths are largely limited to villains and criminals, the deeds are frightening enough, and deliberately,​ _mockingly_ public enough to strike at the very heart of Freedom City's trust in its heroes. As heroes and villains alike go mad, the heroes of Freedom must rally like never before to defend themselves, their families, and their cities from this unexpected attack.
 +
 +The '​wrathful',​ as the press has dubbed them, will happily tell anyone what they'​re doing: Freedom City has tolerated scum and villainy for too long, and now they'​re going to destroy the enemies of Freedom whatever it takes, and whoever they happen to be. It looks as though judgement day has come...

 +==November 2013==

 +
 +Most superheroes have a cause. A focus. A reason for getting out of bed at night, putting on strange clothing, and beating up malefactors. Many tales have been told of their "big, sweeping"​ stories and not the night-to-night work, the same way your typical episode of Law and Order is less about a random mugging (and that's it) and more about mob ties, hate crimes, and/or strange sexual escapades. But what does a hero do on a "​quiet"​ night. What sort of minor issues they deal with in the course of their duties which aren't necessarily salacious enough to draw in other heroes, but which still need to be resolved. After all, a hero's duties start with one injustice, no matter how small.

 +====2014====
 +
 +==January 2014==
 +[[http://​www.freedomplaybypost.com/​topic/​7254-january-2014-vignette-camelot-city|Camelot City]]
 +
 +It's Fantasy Freedom, with a twist! For January 6, 2014, Freedom City was reflected in a fantasy mirror, as a city in a world of Arthurian myth and legend, where mighty knights and brave wizards battle foul fiends and twisted mystics in an effort to bring truth and justice to a lawless land. Heroes recast as a fantasy version of themselves. ​ This version of Fantasy Freedom is closer to Thomas Malory'​s than Marion Zimmer Bradley'​s,​ a land with a really and truly holy Church that fights demons that just might be hanging around to try and steal souls, and where some medieval ideas are closer to truth than others.

 +A vignette detailing a hero's exploits from somebody else's vantage point. They could be heroic, they could be a victim, they could be a bystander. ​ Anyway you slice it, this is their story to tell.

 +[[http://​www.freedomplaybypost.com/​topic/​7688-september-vignette-what-i-did-on-my-summer-vacationback-to-school|WHAT I DID ON MY SUMMER VACATION/​BACK TO SCHOOL]]
 +
 +The end of August and the beginning of September mark a very special time of year for citizens of Freedom City. Summer is ending and fall is beginning, vacation is wrapping up and the school year is beginning! ​ This vignette details just exactly what went on during those wild summer nights, or those less wild back to school mornings.

 +====2015====
 +
 +==January 2015==
 +[[http://​www.freedomplaybypost.com/​topic/​7968-claremont-academy-vignette-big-leagues|Big Leagues]]
 +
 +While the adult heroes of Freedom City spread out across the globe to combat the Incursion, the students of Claremont Academy are left to watch over their fair metropolis! When villains attempt to take advantage of the situation it will be up to these teen titans to rise to occasion! Against foes that give even the Freedom League and other seasoned veterans difficulty can they prevail? Can they even survive?! It may take a holiday miracle!
