The TARC is a large skyscraper placed in the center of Hypertropolis, a shining beacon for all newcomers to the city. All manner of research can be done within the TARC’s walls. Vehicle improvements, weapons technology, advancements in fuel sources, and the latest in biological and chemical achievements are just the surface of the great work being done by Tesison scientists and engineers.
Anyone is free to use the lower research labs for a nominal fee; however, the labs on the upper floors must be accessed by passcard, and those passcards on only handed out to TARC-approved personnel. The application process is simple enough, but you have to put in a certain number of man-hours in at the lab in order to maintain ones membership.
