Fourth Wall Event: Second Phase

Hello, Singularity! Welcome to the second phase of our Fourth Wall Event.

With the turnover in station management, many of the security protocols are still offline. Unfortunately for Sacrosanct residents, these include some of the protocols Hypatia had in place to keep the truly dangerous things coming from the rift from escaping the Junkyard.

As detailed in this log, there will be an enormous crash in the Junkyard that makes most of Kurzweil shake. If anyone chooses to investigate, they’ll find that a Reaver ship has crashed, and its inhabitants are loose and pouring through the teleporters into the station itself. They’ll be cut off after several dozen are set loose, but more will intermittently make it through over the next three days.

Shortly after the threat becomes ICly known, some old station logs will begin appearing on characters’ wearables at random. These logs cannot be saved offline, and any attempt to find them in the network will provide no results, as if they’re being moved around through the system.

Sounds like this isn’t the first time this has happened, and the last group didn’t do so well. So how do you survive?

There are bunkers beneath the currently occupied neighborhoods, but one neighborhood will need to go completely offline to provide enough power to run them. There is one medical station online, located between the two remaining neighborhoods, but there is no automated security -- someone’s gonna have to stand guard.

Of course, those willing to fight back are free to do so, but you’ll find the Reavers are a dangerous enemy -- they’ll focus on incapacitation, not killing, in order to torture their victims. They’re human, so they can be killed, but between sheer numbers and their violent tactics, most would be wise to stay away. (If you've never seen Firefly or Serenity, here's a clip to give you some ideas.)

Opt-out: If you’re not interested in participating, your character will make it into one of the bunkers early, where they’ll be sealed in and kept safe.

How will the event end? The number of Reavers will dramatically increase on Saturday, 11/10, as more and more get out of the Junkyard. The most expedient solution will be to cut life support in Kurzweil. All characters will need to go through a teleporter to Garden Zone 01, but fourth wall characters will not make it through. Any character who remains in Kurzweil will die when life support goes offline; those who are not fourth wall characters will respawn as usual after it comes back on.

Thanks for participating in our event! Any fourth wall characters apped is welcome to keep their memories of this event and emerge from a teleporter instead of arriving through the Junkyard. And, of course, you’re still welcome to bring in new characters during this part of the event! They’re just in for a lot of trouble.

I hereby volunteer Marco for a good mauling (and I'm not opposed to him dying and respawning, though maybe it would be better if he remembered being mauled) if anyone wants to come along for the ride.

If anyone wants to be rescued mid-maul, Zelgadis will probably be pretty decent at reaver-slaying. Scream loudly.

I do still have my Donut around for the fourth wall event if anyone wants to have to plug their ears while he runs around screaming and panicking go reaver-killing with him. Actually, I think it would be funny if he stood guard at the medical station, so maybe that'll happen.

Jituss will be swallowing her conscience to protect the station and picking off Reavers inch by inch, utilizing stealth and hit-and-run tactics. This means she's going to be very mobile and open to random encounters with people outside the bunker or by the med clinic if someone's in dire need! The odds of her sticking with anyone are slim, however.

Hawke will be in the bunker, because there are people in there who she believes will need attention. And because some fifteen year old wants to be An Hero.

Let's make beautiful CR.

So in terms of general plotting:

Roxas/[personal profile] swordisakey, will probably be making it into the bunker.

Grif/[personal profile] grifshot will be around for general laziness/fighting for his life/trying not to get shot if Donut institutes a Red Team emergency plan.

North Dakota/[personal profile] brodakota will be around to be actually useful in a combat situation.

However, please note that the next little while's going to be on the busy side for me, but I backtag to infinity.

Additionally, if people still want casual threads with any of my characters (and this includes Leoben Conoy/[personal profile] patternprophet please let me know because I'm totally up for that as well.

I've only got 479 and she's got her pelican so Ill have her trying to pull Evac duty on anyone in a sticky situation- be they civilian or otherwise. If someone wants to stay in the pelican with her and help out thats an option too. Im open to anything really.

Can Grif help with the Pelican?

And by help I mean potentially crash?

If you don't mind backtagging it, I'm down. It shall be a glorious mess.
sarcasticpelican: (-everyone okay back there?)

[personal profile] sarcasticpelican 2012-11-09 08:24 am (UTC)(link)
For this I would backtag till forever.

I'll shoot you a Plurk about it tomorrow so we can figure it out a bit better.

i have wash (as always), as well as fem!wash, javik from mass effect 3 and olivia from fringe. i've been pretty slow with the last two because i'm still feeling their voices out, but if you'd like to do something with any of them just let me know. olivia will probably be in the bunkers, javik will be off getting himself killed, and fem!wash will likely help out as much as she can.

overall, though, i will continue to be intermittently slow with tags -- i'm pretty wiped out, and i haven't been able to tag as quickly as i'd like. i do backtag until forever, though.

Say, I've got a question. So let's say you put a character into the fourth wall event and I guess they're automatically cut off and trapped in Kurzweil when the life support cuts out...?

What happens if they don't need life support to survive? Are they killed off, too, somehow? Or are they just trapped in Kurzweil until the life support comes back on?

Oh, I gotcha. Thanks!
