The Moon is Shaking!

Spring Year 110, the Commune has begun to shake heavy as a series of earthquakes blast the undercity from top to bottom. Elysuim on the other hand, seems almost unaffected and happens to be ignoring the entire thing from an official stand point. The Commune has reached out to Elysium in order to try to work together to stop the rumblings, but they have been closing the door on any negotiations, considering this a means to an end to solve a problem they've had for awhile: the Commune itself.

As such, as the shakes continue to worsen for the Commune in the first week of Spring, the leader of the Commune @Moh Kohn has stepped up to start solving the problem:

-At the closing of a heated session of the Central Council of the Elysian Commune. Like all other sessions, it is both being livestreamed across the Commune and recorded for those at work to watch when they have the chance-

“...Comrades, I think at this point we are all agreed on what has to be done. The vote was decisive, with the motion moved by Comrade Spardex being carried by 362 votes to 238.

I don’t think we need to rehash the major points. The facts speak for themselves. This moon is suffering from enormous geological instability, and if it isn’t corrected - if something isn’t done - then there is a strong possibility that this instability will lead to the entire planetoid shaking itself apart.

This is undeniable, and as such even the Alliance doesn’t even try to deny it. Their language is more subtle; they argue that it’s not likely to be a major catastrophe and that the crisis will resolve itself. Comrades, this is the talk of a group of people who’ve decided that the crisis will only hurt their rivals. We can expect no help from them or their capitalist backers.

This much was established firmly in the debate we just had. We’ve talked it out, we’ve decided on a solution, and now we have to act as one united whole.

However, Comrade Spardex’s motion recognises another simple fact; we don’t have the resources to do this on our own. We haven’t got the technical skill in terms of specialist scientists, and the Commune’s engineering workers are mostly occupied trying to fix the damage these quakes are causing. To cut it short, we need help.

As such, I make the appeal now - and will repeat it more formally in the coming days - to anyone who might be watching from either the other half of Elysium or the wider world of Pandora. Don’t watch a potential new future be extinguished, don’t sit back and watch us die. Help us.

There are three million people in the Commune, good people. They’re working together to build a new world by themselves and for themselves, but whether they live out the next three months is in your hands. We need people who understand the principles of solidarity and are willing to put those principles into action to step forward and be counted.

Now, there are some who might wonder why the hell they should care, why some Reds on the moon facing annihilation should worry them in the slightest. I’ll put it bluntly in answer. Today the disaster is ours. Tomorrow, though, it could be your home that’s staring down the barrel of destruction - and if you do nothing, there may be nobody to offer you help when it’s your turn to ask for it.

Comrades, I’ll end it there. We’ve got only a little bit of time to save ourselves, but with the help of others and with the new emergency economic plan now called for to match the situation, we don’t have to accept extinction. Let’s get to work.”

The Commune Needs You!

Moh Khon is currently recruiting bands of plucky adventurers to help solve the shaking in the Commune. This event will be broken down into two stages: Phase One will consist of teams forming and laying the ground work to try and solve the problem and Phase Two will be an action sequence using bonuses earned in phase 1 to help decide who will ultimately solve the problem of the Commune shaking from top to bottom!

Warning: There are a number of hazards while participating in this event in phase two! Your character will be in the public eye, they will be going against Elysium and may gain a bad reputation with the government there, they may also get injured and in extreme cases may die (though not as common this time around)!

Reward: On top of earning some cool looking medals, the over all winning team is also going to have a portion of the Commune named after their team!

Phase One

  • You must sign up with teams of 2-4 characters played by different people.. You must have a team name to sign up! Please note that this team name will be in Pandora lore permanently, as such the P&L team reserve the right to reject team names are they are submitted. Please avoid profanity, direct fandom names, joke names, etc!
  • You can sign up at any point during March & April, even the day before Part 2 starts!
  • There is a list of prompts below. Once your team has been accepted, your team may start working on goals through the prompts to earn some bonuses to help your team in Phase Two!
  • Teams will have all of March & April to work on these prompts and earn your over all team bonus. Any number of team members can attempt to earn these bonuses, either by themselves or with characters not on teams/etc.
  • Bonuses range from +2 to rolls to +6 to rolls in phase two.

Phase One Medal


In order to receive this medal, you must sign up with a team and earn your team at least one point!

Phase Two

  • During May there will be weekly prompts posted for teams to try and achieve the goal of assisting Commune through the climax of this event (to be revealed at the start of May)!
  • Using the team's previously earned bonus as well as a bonus from weekly prompts, teams will compete to be the one to save the Commune!
  • The team that survives all four weeks and has the highest "roll" on the final week wins!

Phase Two Medal


In order to receive this medal, your team must participate in at least one round of part two by selecting at least one path!
