    "Alright, here's how it is."

    "We've got a danger zone on our maps, a big one. We're gon' fill it in and find out what goes on inside. Prolly heard of it, we've all heard of it, and the rumours of what goes on there, but there's no concrete info on what's even guarding this place. Nobody ever comes back."

    "It's Nova Prospekt."

    "Few questions I figure yah got tah ask we'll get out the way."

    "Is this dangerous?"

    "Yah, one of the most dangerous fings we've ever done."

    "We ready for this?"

    "No. Not at all, and it'll be a long time until we are, and even then..."

    "So what can we do tah get ready?"

    "This is what."

    This post is IC to the characters who've been put in the know, and serves as a little notice and hub for people who aren't yet but want to get involved in this event line.

    It's going to consist of at least six lead-up events, maybe more. Some will need the event server, I hope for the majority to just happen on-server as we go. Some of them have already started and getting involved in them is down to the people you talk to and getting pulled in.

    To be clear, you do not need to be in the scouts to be involved in these events.

    Don't think you can find you way into one of these entirely IC but still want to be part of it? Talk to me, I'll see what I can work out.

    The Hydra Hunt

    [​IMG]

    "We need the vortigaunts to help us out but they want to complete a ritual first."

    "This will be a lot easier for us and buy us a favour if we get involved and help them with this."

    "We're killing the hydra. They want secretions, and it's been a horror to us already, crawling in people's heads."

    "There's a few things we'll make sure we've got worked out to be sure this goes off smoothly. This thing's not made life easy for us, we're really hoping this is the only one. With our luck it won't be, but at least we'll have peace for a little while."

    "We're going to drain the water out from under it, and to manage that we need some things prepared. Maintenance tunnel maps, explosives, and pulse weapons. When it happens we'll have a group of vortigaunts alongside us to keep us safe."

    "I'll be back here when it happens, making sure all this goes off like we planned."


    No time is planned, this will happen on S1 on its own when all the conditions are met. Now is your chance to make your willingness to be part of it known, not every single person can get involved. This will involve fighting in close quarters, so the team selected will be limited by that.​

    Everything is actually ready, it's being set up as I type this


    Music

    "Hello?"

    "Is there anyone reading me?"

    "Hello?!"

    "I'm underground, they told me your base was here, is there anyone receiving?!"

    "What happened here?"




    "Was that one of you?"

    "Who's back there? Is this one of yours?"

    "Somebody, please answer."

    "What happened here, somebody? Anybody!"

    "WHAT THE HELL IS-"

    "Step the next bit, the new steppening. The return of revengence."

    "I mean step two."

    "The vorts owe us, kinda, but we did sort of get two of theirs dead. Super dead. We can't get the extract without a replacement for those two."

    "Lucky for us, there's a few shackled we can break loose. We need them loose, and soon as that's done we're jumping into that antlion hive."

    "Next weekend is the deadline, get on it."

    The Extract Extraction... Extract-tion?

    [​IMG]

    "You actually managed it."

    "We have a few more vortigaunts on our side, but we can always do with more."

    "As it is, we have enough right now. You'll head to the caves this weekend, that's how long I need to prepare this."

    "When you're there help the vortigaunts get the extract, that's what they want, and make sure to remind them to get us the bait."

    "We can put it on ice and start the next stage, working in the city."


    Saturday, about midnight GMT, about 8pm EST. No sign ups but places are limited and people who show interest first may be prioritised. IC suitability will be king. If there's enough demand there will be two groups, but one will not be part of the main event and will split off to gather something else in the cave.​

    If you actually want to absolutely secure a place in any of these events to come you'd be best catching me when I'm on, which is literally every night for at least half an hour, but usually longer.

    I figure that sounds like yet another "hey why don't you come RP nothing at all" night to most of you, but if people were on I'd be able to do stage two at the same time as stage one, on top of the other three or four event lines I'm trying to help folks with, but all those need at least some people on since they can't be easily staged ahead of time.

    Things for you folks to keep in mind, if any of it interests you:

    - More proper city ops planned, passive and exciting ones
    - Big funtime event that needs major planning and many small jobs done between me and Hawkeye
    - Vort event line for vort and human characters between me and Popo, stuff just happens as we're online dynamically, just talk to the vorts
    - Working along Fuzzy for the Anthemusa line
    - What the fuck is Buscemi even doing, I don't know but I bet it's fun once he figures that shit out
    - My personal plot to follow the Nova Prospekt one here that I've not re-introduced yet, but it's one people may remember

    "I wanna do that."

    "You hear what Knight's been up to?"

    "Yeah, isn't that crazy son of a bitch trying to take out a train?"

    "I thought it was a a depot."

    "You're both wrong, we're doing both."

    "When's this happening?"

    "Sunday, bring a gun."




    That's right, this Sunday we at around 5PM EST, I wanna run this train/depot heist. Sign up for a little bit of fun. I'm going to take everyone I can, but first people who sign up get priority. Sign up here so I can organize you into teams.

    Yo what's up the rebels got RINSED because they tried to attack a CCA FOB already on high-alert straight-on. That by no means this shit's gonna slow down just because we LOST, we're gonna do that AGAIN but BETTER. Boys it'll be whenever I say it is in the next few days let's get ready for round two maximum boogaloo.

    If a straight-up assault don't even make a dent will an entire train slamming into the FOB??

    Tomorrow, 5pm EST-ish

    About the same time, much smaller roster, much more specific plan in mind.

    If you're online when it's time you get an invite.

    CCA is invited too.

    6-12 people either side depending on turnout, but we're keeping it even.

    RGB - Today at 05:19
    I might delay it an hour or two, bike puncture, will take me 2 hours to get home instead of 20 minutes (I now have to walk several miles to work)

    I genuinely (and this might sound blunt) but hope that the amount of people invested into this event this time around will be a lot less so we can have PROPER RP for both sides and not just have it devolve into something simplistic, shotcop-esque.

    RGB - Today at 23:54
    If I'm not under a 4 day time limit to churn out what I wanted to be a well planned and processed event I'm not gonna rush out garbage

    What's up not today, it was hardly planned but I thought I only had four days to finish this entire plotline up.

    I have longer, so I'm going to take my time with it.

    In other words.

    Haha get fucked.

    This is in like 16-18 hours folks, reminder before I snooze in case I forgot to remind you.

    I didn't actually take this time to do any planning at all, it was already all planned out entirely on the night, I've just been advised to take it easier and stop stressing out so much :)




    Selection to go is based on IC factors, you'll be chosen when it's time, hope your character hasn't pissed off the recruiter. 6-12 people on resistance side, more on Union side, like up to 18 if we had 12 rebels, that sorta ratio.

    edit: no s2k is planned for, i remember people asking

    ** They conquered the world. A desolate city with a handful of partisans is no match. Despite the quick movement and coordination of the insurgent forces, there sound of dropships and approaching helos meet the ears of the few remaining survivors. The city is about to be blockaded completely. **

    Didn't have time to say it last night but thanks to all parties involved, especially the CCA and COTA guys who have helped proof-test this new (my old) approach to event running and proving we didn't need a scripted sequence of events for it to turn out well. It was made only better by the fact none of us knew the outcome and that they got so close to a perfect heist until that one major setback and it completely turned around on the rebels.

    Got a fair few more ideas buzzing around now I know can do more freeform things like this again.
