It had been an interesting week to say the least, it had been only seven days ago that you’d been heard about the Freedom League’s call for heroes to apply for their first “local expansions”, right here in their home town of Freedom City. There had been talk of how many people in the city feel somewhat abandoned by the League since their move up to the Lighthouse and becoming more “globally active” and the super villains haven’t been letting up in their efforts: the White Knight’s appearance at a parade supporting Marko Worth and his racist group the Worthy, the Psions’ attack on one of the Albright Institute’s facilities, the recent set of fights between SHADOW and VIPER.
It’s understandable why the public feels the way they do, and the League decided to move up their plans of expansion to assure the public’s trust in them. After all Freedom City is technically their home town, many of the League members are still active here but even they have their limits. So they reached out to several people they knew were active and would be interested in joining the League full time.
When you’d first arrived at Freedom Hall several days ago you were surprised to see so many people had been come to answer the League’s call, granted it was only about fifteen people total but when you considered that each of them possibly were at least as powerful as any member of the League that number is somewhat staggering. First came the one-on-one interview, in which you’d been questioned about your powers: what they exactly were, how well you understood them (in some cases that takes longer than others), how long you’d been active as a super hero, why you wanted to join the League, some of your experiences so far as a super hero, as well as a short testing of your powers to demonstrate you skill and control of them as well as your ability to adapt their use in random situations that was monitored by different members of the League.
That was followed by a kind of mixer where everyone was encouraged to get to know some of the others who had applied over a small meal. After that everyone was divided into groups to see how well you could work as part of a group and were given random situations to deal with: from a bank robbery by Rant and Rave along with a group of thugs to dealing with the fall-out of a earthquake, to even an attack by members of the Crime League, a really involved process overall. But once everything was said and done everyone was thanked for their time and efforts and were told that they would soon be contacted by a member of the League.
That happened last night for you, the League has chosen you to represent them in Freedom City. You were told to come today to Freedom Hall to meet the other members of the “new League”, be issued your membership I.D. cards, get the full tour of the Hall, and for those who would be staying at Freedom Hall to move in any personal items they might want. As the appointed time grew closer you prepared yourself for this next big step in your life and started to make your way to that famed landmark of Freedom City.

The only thing I‘ll ask for specifically is that you end your first post in the lobby/reception area of the 1st floor of Freedom Hall where you tell the A.I. receptionist “Cynthia” your name and she’ll direct you to the nearby seats to wait on one of the League members to greet all of you. Otherwise have at it gang!
