Welcome to Rib Creek, a small industrial town located about twenty miles from the walls of City 107.
Rib Creek is and always has been a mining town, founded in the late 1800s to serve the nearby iron mines.
The closest mine, officially designated Resource Extraction Site 107.11, was founded some time in the 1960s and continued to operate after the Combine assumed control of the region, now producing
small but vital quantities of raw iron for the regime's use. Rib Creek is now almost entirely dedicated to 107.11 as nature and un-nature have claimed the more distant mine complexes.
Life in Rib Creek is hard, not far removed from the days of the Wild West. The days are long, and if you don't work the mine, you work the mill, processing ore and getting it
ready to ship to 107's foundries. There's shared living quarters for about one hundred people, a bar, a hairdresser, and a few other necessities. Combine ration deliveries
don't always keep up with demand for food, so some folks have taken to hunting or maintaining victory gardens with their free time to make sure there's enough for everybody.
Other than when the trucks come to collect the ore, the ever-present automated scanner drones, and the occasional Rural Police patrol,
the Combine have little influence here. But the wilderness is untamed and teeming with danger - safety in numbers keeps people here.
Your character is an Outer Resident - assigned to live in this remote place, outside of the City's nurturing (or, some would say, crushing) walls, toiling in the iron mine. They may eventually be rotated out,
or they may die here. Nobody's ever really sure how long they'll stay, but most folks hope against hope they'll be selected for relocation to an Urban Center, like the nearby and recently revived City 107.
This weekend, we'll explore life beyond the city walls. We'll need Outer Residents, Rural Police units, and Xenians. The main servers will be temporarily locked to focus on this RR event. RSVP below.
Anyone with a Citizen character is free to make a new Outer Resident character. Anyone with a Metropolice character is free to participate as a Rural Police unit when needed. Xenians, do your thing.
New characters will have opportunities to carry over to regular play once the event concludes.
THIS WEEKEND 10/16-10/18
Make sure you download the map.
