Captain Jack Harkness's Torchwood has risen from the ashes, after the original British institution was buried. No longer does Torchwood rely on the government to provide a service for Earth. Torchwood has once again become a global organization that helps Earth combat both extra-terrestrial and terrestrial threats. Torchwood's goals are to see Earth and the human race make it to see the future, and to prevent it from going terminal before its time. They also see to helping out those who have fallen through the Rift, by either offering a position to those suited to the Torchwood life style or simply providing support. For those who are not meant for Torchwood, there are smaller fronts that people are able to operate from the coffee shops, clinics, and other small businesses located near the main HUBs.
Torchwood is built up of numerous fronts all across the globe, that help provide humanity with technological advances to something simple like a coffee shop franchise. The Torchwood HUBs are global with many mini-Torchwoods scattered across each of the seven continents and in numerous countries. Their main headquarters is now located in Los Angeles, the other main HUBs located in New York City, London, Cardiff, and Glasgow. The HUBs are connected together by teleport that allows people to travel between the various HUBs.
Fractured Rifts does not have an activity checks, but we would like for those who join with Torchwood to be reasonably active. Members need to be at least eighteen, and have skills (medics, engineers, special abilities, leadership skills.. etc.) that would make them suitable for the organization. Remember, not everyone in Fractured needs to be a member to be involved with plots. Torchwood also will accept help freelance workers from individuals that do not fit in a team like setting.
There's no application to join, if your muse fits please post below, and remember sometimes Torchwood comes looking for you.
The HUB leaders not only have an IC function, but they also function as a mini-moderator. While anyone can run a plot in fractured, they are those that have the ability to drive a plot, help both IC/OOC with players inside of the comm if they're Torchwood or not, and help make decisions for the direction the game is going to take.
They can also remove/add people to their HUB. And, with full backing from each HUB leader removal from Torchwood (or the verse/comm) itself.
The Los Angeles HUB is located in the Malibu Hills section of the city. It sits on 125,000 acres of land that leads out to a private beach. The homes of many of the staff are in this area, from those that work in the other branches, to even a few notable locals.
The HUB itself is a large mansion home that functions as the main work area, a medical suite in the guest house that's fit with the latest in medical equipment (some of it is beyond modern), and various labs that aren't connected to the main house.

The new New York HUB is currently located in Stark Towers that sits in downtown Manhattan. Besides the work area, there are high rise penthouse apartments for the staff that works there. This is not limited to the large fish tank that provides
Abe a home, and Red's own private living space complete with a cat sanctuary.

Like the phoenix the Torchwood Towers of Canary Wharf have been reactivated. This goes for the rest of the majority of Torchwood's former holdings in the United Kingdom, from storage facilities, research facilities, and other locations that help the ravaged that have been taken by the Rift only to be returned. The London branch is considered to be the headquarters of the Torchwood facilities in the United Kingdom.

Recently rebuilt after it was buried during the events of the 456 (resembles the S2 HUB). The old Cardiff HUB sits under The Roald Dalh Plass and Millenium Center. Its got a relatively small staff for how large the Archive space is. Its unknown how big it exactly is, even Captain Jack Harkness doesn't know for sure. There maybe many mysteries that have been locked away from the previous owners for over a century.
Torchwood Cardiff is also responsible for tending to the Cardiff Rift, that has since reopened. The staff there takes care of the population of Weevils that lives under the sewers, debris from other universes, and anything else that has been washed up by the Rift.

The New Glasgow HUB sits in one of the original Torchwood holdings inside of Cawdor Castle. This HUB is unique in that it relies on magic instead of science based technology. It also houses many staff members who are gifted in the dark arts.
