Excited, yet?Site DevelopmentsApril Fool's CelebrationThe site was turned upside-down (quite literally) for April Fool's Day!

The poor boy was tortured and torn apart and left in the City Centre for all to see. It leaves many Wonders thinking: "Are we safe?"Taboo SubjectsShortly after the murder of Wonder Jimmy Walters, Mayor of New Venice Antonio Leto hosted a press conference, where everyone expected him to talk about the city's plan of action concerning the hate crime. However, when it was brought up, he sidestepped the question and the reporter later got fired. What is going on in the Town Hall? How far does this corruption go? Will the Mayor's personal hatred of Wonders continue to stand in the way of justice?John Harker Disappears?After his faux pas at the press conference, the fired reporter John Harker spent some time trying to find another job in writing before mysteriously disappearing. Did he flee the city in shame, or is he working on a project that will rock the city at its core? Only time will tell.The Beast of Kesky Strikes -- Again!It seems like everywhere one turns, the terrifying Beast of Kesky is waiting to pounce on innocent victims. This time, the victim was newsie Erik Corrigan, although retired Protector Dolan Jones was able to put a stop to the Beast before it finished its gruesome work. Will Erik survive the devastating attack?Looking ForwardMay is going to see a lot of fun happenings!Here are a few highlights that you can look forward to:May's Character ThemeThe character theme for May is Wonder Haters! Make a character who hates Wonders and gain 10 Birthright points!Snow Angels Backlash?It's safe to say that people are a little shaken up by the murder... but are there citizens of New Venice who are looking for revenge?Unlawful Censorship of PublicationsThey say free speech is a right granted to every citizen and every publication. Why, then, are reporters getting the axe for speaking up about the issues? Is anything going to be done about this censorship of city newspapers and magazines? There is some talk of an underground publication surfacing that will speak more frankly about the issues... but will the people listen?The Beast Is Out!At least one person has seen the infamous Beast of Kesky's human face. What will this mean for the city of New Venice, or for the beast herself?Statistics22 players55 characters Male32Human31 Female23Wonder24 ChildrenTeenagers20s30s40s+ 31521610
