LocationsEdit

V-ClubEdit

101 V-Club

Human sacrifices in the V-Club

The V-Club (Virtual Club) is a hedonistic club created by teenagers who illegally hacked the Virtual World. Access is gained via a password on an e-sheet. This club is morally bankrupt, a place in which any player can indulge in their most base fantasies - murder, human sacrifice, drug dens, fight rooms, group sex rooms, etcetera. ("Pilot")

New Cap CityEdit

108 Adama Apt NCC

Adama apartment in New Cap City

New Cap City is a game which is digitally and virtually identical to Caprica City, except that it is lawless. The object of the game is unknown. It is interpreted differently by different people. When a player dies, their avatar de-rezzes. This permanently bans the player from returning to the game. Several real-world locations are depicted here - Joseph Adama's apartment, Atlas Arena and the MAGLEV train. ("There Is Another Sky") ("Ghosts in the Machine") ("Things We Lock Away")

Chiron's ClubEdit

This speakeasy on the Lower East Side of New Cap City is Chiron's favorite club. He holds court at the back flanked by beautiful men and women, and surrounded by thugs.

Chiron's Bank VaultEdit

Chiron's Bank Vault in New Cap City

Chiron's Bank Vault in New Cap City is where he keeps his game points. Heracles and Tamara Adama pull off a heist for Vesta in exchange for Vesta finding a way to get Tamara out of the game and send her back home. ("There Is Another Sky")

Tamara accompanies Heracles (disguised as Chiron) into Chiron's vault. Heracles approaches it first, telling the security guards to leave. Tamara comes when the coast is clear. The vault is actually under their feet, further secured by a puzzle. Tamara steps on selected signs of the twelve colonies as directed by Heracles – Picon, Caprica, Gemenon, Picon, and Tauron – and the vault opens, releasing points. Heracles collects them with a device and shows the result to her. Over three-hundred-sixty-six billion points are registered before an alarm sounds. The security guards return. Tamara steps between them and Heracles. She clenches her fists and they disappear to Heracles' astonishment. She does not know how she did it. ("There Is Another Sky")
