Note from Author[]

Some people requested an expansion of what kind of mayhem Joker and her band of merry reprobates got up to, so here we are. It will contain elements, locations, characters and themes often found in Cannonshop's "Ngo/Kowloon" stories (with his permission), so a passing familiarity with those may help, but will hopefully be unnecessary.
