Time to Blow the Moon Up


Science says its the only solution.

You've all worked hard trying to solve the problem of the literal earthquakes rocking the Commune from the ground up. Unfortunately Elysium continues to ignore the problem and the scientists helping the Commune out have come to the conclusion that in order to save the Commune (and Elysium) the moon itself has to be split. The information has been verified by three different teams of scientists and the answer remains the same: the moon must be blown up on May 31st, Year 110.

The Commune has reached out to the teams that have been helping thus far to help them just a little bit more. You've been asked to go to various parts of the moon to help the scientists get further data to figure out exactly where the charges need to be and help actually blow the moon into (hopefully) two pieces.

Teams have also been warned that Elysium has recently announced that it will start arresting anyone looking to cause trouble while vaguely making it clear that anyone working with the Commune will be targeted. Publicly, reporters and news stations have started to look for deeper information on exactly what is going on.

You're going to be in the public eye. You're going to try to blow up the moon. You may get arrested or hurt in the process... but both the Commune and Elysium will be saved. Split and entirely two separate cities...

But this is your mission, should you choose to accept it.

But How?

The Basics

  • Each week, staff will post a list of locations for your team to select from. Your team must select one route or will automatically lose that week. You do so by responding to this thread with the coded reply below!
  • Each location will have a prompt for you to respond to in order to earn an extra bonus, but this portion is optional! These do not stack from week to week and expire once the prompt and location has changed.
  • At the end of every week, staff will roll a d20 for each location.
  • Teams will be given a final number based on their location roll, their part 1 bonus, and any weekly bonus they've earned as a team.
  • Teams will then be listed from highest to lowest, and the lowest fourth will be cut each week.
  • The final week, whichever team has the highest roll wins. They get to blow up the moon!

A Maximum 4 bonus points to roll can be awarded no matter team size. Weekly bonuses are based on number of people in the team and how they participate. Posts must be at least 100 words to count!
  • With four members, all four members must respond to the prompt to get the maximum amount.
  • With three members, all three must post, then one member can post a second reply to get the maximum amount.
  • With two members, both members can post twice to receive the maximum bonus but both must reply to earn points past the first two.

Winner Winner

Should you win over all, members of your team will be awarded with this swanky medal:

Additionally, a portion of the new city hub of the Commune will be named after your team! More details to be released with the season change! <3

Keep Working!


Every week we post 4 locations to choose from. You and your team choose one, and we roll a location score then add it to your bonuses earned.

Also every week, you're given the option to make bonus posts - more information in the main thread above!

They have to be at least 100 words, and directly linked into this thread, otherwise we won't see it. Posts should be vaguely reaction to last week's outcome/this week's choice.

Only one person needs to post your team's choice, but each person needs to post their own bonus post.

Not choosing a location means you automatically lose. The weekly locations are the same, but the prompts are different each week

Good luck.

The locations

  • Area 1 - Rodchenko Habitation Complex:
    Named after the artist Alexander Rodchenko, the modern and angular-looking habitation complex stretches across a square mile of the Commune’s western sector. Amongst the housing can be found several communal cafes and parks, as well as several murals painted by the inhabitants themselves. It was one of the first areas to be regenerated under the Central Council’s New Housing Project back in November Y110, and though the quakes have damaged some of the buildings most of it is impressively still standing.

  • Area 2 - Colossus Megafactory:
    Several huge APMs spread across this area, connected to each other by plasteel-glass walkways that look like straws next to the bulk of the buildings. This enormous industrial complex is virtually a town in its own right, and was once used to provide the Alliance Navy with the metals it needed to build warships. Now the resources it produces get used for more peaceful purposes - though the firefighting volunteers and engineers have never been busier trying to keep the place safe and operational.

  • Area 3 - New Venice:
    In between small but carefully maintained mini-parks connected by repurposed scrap-metal bridges, relatively shallow waterways criss-cross each other along a stretch of Commune territory. One of the few places in the Undercity where a large amount of running water can be found in one place, the former industrial outflows and “canals” of New Venice were cleaned up, made safe and repurposed as a somewhat unorthodox but well-loved swimming park.

  • Area 4 - Liberation Square:
    The centre of the Commune, and the seat of its central government. Liberation Square gained its name due to it being the site of a particularly fierce battle against Inilossum’s Peacekeepers back in the dark days, and the citizens largely treat it as sacred ground as a result. Most of the “governmental” buildings here are either repurposed warehouses or old factories that have since been replaced by more modern tech, something that the large scarlet banners and murals of revolutions past don’t really hide.

Prompts
  • Area 1 - Lack of Gravity
    Your team was managing a group of people looking to escape the general chaos going on after their block crumbled into rubble, when the gravity for this portion of the Commune suddenly started acting up. Your feet lift off the ground along with everyone around you. You start to float the ceiling… but that doesn’t mean you’ll survive the drop should the gravity suddenly kick back on. Scramble to safety!

  • Area 2 - Moral Dilemma
    While on the trail, two simultaneous distress signals appear on your communications equipment. A research station in the valley has been partially buried by a quake-triggered landslide, but on the other side of the area another expedition has come under attack by raiders. Both have very little time before their respective crises overwhelm them...

  • Area 3 - Gangland Hit
    Whatever you’ve done so far in the Morrel Court, it’s crossed the wrong people. A cybernetically enhanced hit squad armed with prometheus-dust weaponry has been sent to deal with you once and for all. You can’t fight them - they’re too good - but if you’re lucky and use the ruins to your advantage, you might just get away...

  • Area 4 - Cave Wyrm
    Your soundings and measurements have drawn a Cave Wyrm to you - one of the most dangerous predators in the Cosmic Wilderness, a huge snakelike alien some sixty feet long. How it got onto Elysium isn’t important; what’s important is that this monstrous beast is hunting your team. Either drive it off or escape!

Current Deadline

May 21st, Midnight EST!

@theweasleyboys Feel free to ask questions in the questions area or in the questions channel on the discord in the future!

Nothing is happening on Pandora proper during all of this! Also the planet is not being destroyed, its being split into two!

Putting this out to announce we'll be having a Moon Destruction Album release coming out the day of the big boom, come pick up a physical album at your local record store or download it off starknet...or just steal I ain't a cop.
basically for those who don't wanna click on the spoiler in my previous status, the short version is that I'll be taking a weeklong (possibly longer or shorter) break from posting and I'm really sorry if you're waiting on me
