Brickstown VidiotMap


The signature landmark of Brickstown is Zigursky Prison. This mammoth structure is most often called "The Ziggurat," and was constructed to hold prisoners with powers that would allow them to easily escape from normal jails. Unfortunately, it's not very effective, with the rampaging criminals all over the city always wanting to spring their buddies. The lack of available police and security means that the prisoners don't have too difficult a time getting out of jail. Other nicknames for the prison, used most often by those within its walls, include "The Brick House" and "The Big Zig."

In addition to the prisoner problems, Brickstown has Crey agents running around, as the Countess tries to expand her power. The private security forces of Crey Industries frown upon outside interference, because they see this as their personal problem.

Zigursky Prison and Brickstown both lie above a series of natural caverns, and could theoretically be destroyed if those caverns were collapsed. The Freakshow are aware of this weakness and have already made several failed attempts to do just that in order to free their brethren held within. Due to this structure, Brickstown is also one of the most topographically complex areas of the game, rivaling and possibly surpassing Skyway City. Its surface streets and structures reveal only part of the zone's navigable areas, the rest being tucked underneath in the form of underpasses, canals, and service doors. This makes crow's-flight navigation to missions in this zone difficult at times.

Exploration Badges

File:Badge tourist 01.png Mystic

This nexus is the intersection of two very minor Ley Lines, almost imperceptible to those without Second Sight.

File:Badge tourist 01.png Inmate

Zigursky Penitentiary is where all criminals both mundane and super-powered end up.

File:Badge tourist 01.png Flying Shark

The roof of the Zig is the site of the first breakout by Arachnos. Captain Mako had been captured by some heroes, only to escape, tearing a path of destruction through the Zig. It ended up on the roof, where he commandeered a Longbow Skiff to fly himself out. Mako was seen leaping from skiff to skiff during the aerial battle with Longbow until he dove into the waters of Talos to swim back to the Isles.

File:Badge tourist 01.png Fugitive

When a fugitive escapes from the Zig, this area is the first place that the PPD patrol. The Freakshow frequently make deals with inmates - they'll hold off the PPD if the escapees join the Freakshow. This either leads to the Freakshow increasing their ranks or hunting down the fugitives who break their end of the bargain.

File:Badge tourist 01.png Forward Thinker

The Mashu bridge was built in Brickstown long before construction on the Zig began. Traffic was heavy in Brickstown, causing a need for this bridge to be constructed. It was only shortly afterward that plans for the Zig were created, driving the majority of business owners out from Brickstown and into Steel Canyon, rendering Mashu bridge nothing but an odd landmark.

File:Badge tourist 01.png Secret Path

Tub Ci used this secret path beneath the basketball courts of Brickstown to make a clean escape from the Zig. Officers were unable to find this well hidden location until it was too late. The PPD now keep secret agents around the courts - specifically as basketball players - to prevent such a slip up from happening again.

File:Badge tourist 01.png Sixth Passenger

Sebastian Frost hid in the trunk of this old car for three days after he was broken out from the Zig. It was after the third day, under the cover of night, that his goons in the Family were able to come rescue him. Frost has been extra careful ever since then to never get caught again.

File:Badge tourist 01.png Unsubtle

Clamor of the Freakshow used this warehouse as a hideout after escaping from the Zig - sort of. She lasted barely an hour in hiding before bursting out of the warehouse to attack PPD searching for her. This spilled out into an all-out brawl with nearby Council and 5th Column, allowing Bile to swoop in and pull Clamor out from the chaos.
