Ravensport was founded in the mid 1800s by Lord Michael Raven, a minor English lord who had been disowned by his family. It quickly grew into a bustling port city. The local economy is very diverse and robust.
Twenty years ago, a massive explosion known simply as the Event rocked the northern part of the city. Between the explosion and the flood, Ravensport was dealt a severe blow. But Ravensport has always had a energy and life that defied all explanation. Within hours, relief supplies and rescue workers streamed into the city. The residents rebuilt, and today, Ravensport is a strong as ever.
A significant reason for the city’s rebirth is simple. Before the Event, metahumans were extremely rare, with less than fifty confirmed superbeings worldwide. Since then, the number of superbeings has skyrocketed, and Ravensport has become a major center for metahuman activity.
