Throughout the 1990’s, spurred on by the massive influx of new immigrants, tensions mount between the overlapping cultures and growing disparity between income and social status of neighbors from one side of the street to the next. As more power shits to local leaders, and communities demand more autonomy, the various cultures forced into ever smaller and more confined neighborhoods begin to clash in district standoffs, general violence and unrest. District 10 is the epicenter of the conflict at the height of the Culture Clashes. District 05 cordoned off the most exclusive properties and neighborhoods in the city. The affluent residents hired private security to patrol the Gates in response to the ‘Low Districts’ overpowering the city and taking control of the Gates for nefarious purposes. Over time STRC Force made District 05 their home base and HQ. The gates in and out of District 05 are the most heavily fortified and unlike some of the outlying abandoned gates, District 05 Gates are manned by armed STRC Patrols 24 hours a day.
