    Western Sector 17, Dolyna Outback, former Odessa Oblast.

    The lands have grown wild here. Nearly two decades since Humanity began to abandon massed agriculture, the well-kept modern forests, the flowing-grain field and the great nature reserves have become a distant memory of the past. Wheat grows wild now; trees break soil in lands of permanent steppe -- men no longer dare to brave these violent ecosystems. Xen life, among them a great many Antlions, have been drawn out of their caves in pursuit of new caverns and resources, much to the chagrin of the resistance and smugglers. The Universal Union, aware of the dangers of abandoning Humanity’s shepherding traditions, have always kept a watchful, yet indifferent watch over the affair of Earth’s ecosystems.


    But something has changed. In the lands West of City 17, beyond it’s powered defensive perimeters, ecologies have mutated in alarming ways. The former nature reserve at Dalnytski has broken it’s fenced gates, revolting against it's former chains. Different kinds of vegetation, uncatalogued by Union databases, has noded across the trees and fertile earth. The temperature has changed here, too - the humidity of the Black Sea climate has mysteriously spread inland, but here specifically the moisture can claim lives. The only men who dare to venture here are brave experts, smugglers of the path whose expertise in Antlion behavior and new Earth bionomics can hope to ensure their safety.




    Universal Union

    CCA units work with AIRWATCH towards intervention

    Among concerns of this ecological crisis, the ambitious Sectorial Administrator at City 17, an expansive and interventionist personality unlike his contemporaries, has looked for opportunities to levy support from his superiors for some time now with only mixed results. A perilous outlands Sector 17 holds, it also presents great opportunities for trade and smuggling across the great rivers of Europe in the Dnieper and the Volga, connecting to other great cities nearby. However, with this ecological crisis, any attempts to expand inland has been met with logistical problems unafforded by the Auditors and the Ministers with their budgets.

    However, that watchful eye of the Union, indifferent as it may be, has served its purpose today. Codes discerned as those in old Soviet files as wavelengths dedicated to the secret launch of an ICBMs nuclear launch protocols was caught by a Combine electronic signal injector tower (CESJT), with coordinates set on the United States by a secret facility near the former reserve. Union computers attempted to jam the signals, but the signal was cut as quickly as it came. Attempts to track the exact missile launch point resulted in a failure, as connections were mysteriously cut shortly with the CESJT. With all hands on deck, the Observation Corps were relieved to find that no explosion has been reported, nor any signs of a launch. However, great mystery lurks behind every corner in this investigation, and as the closest regional authority, the Sectorial Commander has assumed sovereignty on all incoming operations on the case.

    A great opportunity, or a grave threat, it is an affair that could spell the end of the Sectorial Union’s career. It is in Dolyna that this will be first decided.




    The Resistance

    [​IMG]
    The Dnieper-Odessa Smuggler Trail

    A result of City 17’s austerity and good management by the Union in it’s superstructure of institutions, any notion of a strong “Resistance” has fallen on deaf ears. Poor leadership, infighting, and a great lack of resources has insured that those who seek power from within have only become scapegoats in a long line of scapegoats. The resistance of this late administration pales in comparison to it’s earlier idealistic counterparts. However, perhaps curiously, a man, claiming to be a smuggler has arrived in City 17 speaking of a need to open trade with the great underbelly of the City 17, to re-establish contact with the underground world.


    He offers a mission, as well as a business connection to all interested parties: partake in an expedition to the outbacks of Dolyna, arrive at night-fall, bringing those you trust the greatest, and you will be armed and supplied as you escort goods across this treacherous area. Vigilance, subtlety, quick instincts is all that is needed. Partake in this, and you will be rewarded two-fold: great discounts on weapons previously unfound in the underground, as well as money unknown to any singular ration.


    What might seem mundane to the rebels of the past, this presents a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to the hopefuls of today. Men separated by their differences have been known to turn their head when met with the sword, and power must be monopolized by those who would hope to wield it. This spells opportunity for the Resistance, in the name of high grade weapons, wealth, and connections. However, it has shaped up to be no simple feat: the land is infested with voracious Antlion hordes, and the wrong step could spell disaster even within the domesticated domain of the Trail.


    The world turns. What once was, may come again. Risks must be made in order to secure a greater future.

    // OOC Portion:


    Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by to read about the new upcoming major event for the server. For further details and clarification, this event altogether will begin on the planned date of Wednesday, July 1st. It is planned to begin at around 6:00 PM EST (GMT-4), and there are many different roles players can fill if they want to be involved with what should be an altogether very fun event. This event has already been hinted at/offered ICly on the server in various ways, and will continue to be so that all interested parties may prepare for it (talking to you, resistance characters).

    Furthermore, we will have a lot of characters that can be filled if you want to participate. Here is a small list:
    ?x - Anti-citizen characters (there can be any number of these, and you merely have to speak with the proper people ICly to get involved. Note: these should be your real characters you want to develop)
    ?x - CCA characters (same as above, but please confirm with your faction leader that you are okay to go.)
    2x - AIRWATCH (These will be played by administrators in order for ESP use (simulating Biosignals), one hunter chopper and one dropship.
    2x - Mysterious Guerilla Fighters (post in the thread if you want to be one or message me at @oc#0808 and I will explain more)
    ?x - Antlion Event Characters (If you want to play an antlion that will be around the map who roleplays, or just an antlion who hops on people's faces, post in the thread or message at @oc#0808 )

    Event Applications:
    Character from the list that you want to play:
    Discord name:
    Will you be available at 7/1/2020 at 6:00 PM?:

    Note: this is a series of events, and so if you choose to play an event character, you should expect to have enough time to fill in for that character if needed at a further planned event date.

    Another note: a big credit to Suaki for his awesome scene-work and help with the screenshots above, as well as to the developers for all of their work on all their newer features which has made writing events fun and easy.

    If there is a need to move the event back to the upcoming weekend due to enough people having problems with scheduling, let me know.

    The CCA was successful in it's mission, retrieving the data-chip from the CESJT that they were tasked with locating, brought back to City 17. The stragglers, lead by the trail smuggler Columbus, brought the package received from City 17 out of the city and further down the trail to be claimed by other smugglers, and brought back a key. It was a mission successful for both sides, and the resistance forces have appointed their own beneficiaries on the trail to it's highest rewards. The CCA has interned the chip with the Auditor Observation Corps, pending data collection and research and look for further orders on the case.



    // OOC section:
    I want to apologize for all the confusion in this event. It was a sincerely ambitious endeavor which simply required me to juggle too many things at once, much to the discontent of most people on the server. What was supposed to be a slow-moving event for the resistance, marked with many different character encounters, sub-plots and getting lost with potential for character-driven crisis', became a speed-run across the map to get scripts. I personally believe these are the critical mistakes I made with this event:

    1. Too much dependency on myself to coordinate the event.
    2. Making the event so top-heavy and depending on resting so much of the pace on one person (the smuggler), which made the event run incredibly quickly. This character should have been run by somebody I was in constant communication with OOCly.
    3. Being unable to effectively adjust the event towards something comfortable-enough for all involved parties: I did not expect there to only be four active CCA members during this event, and expected a lot more to be active despite the lack of applications here. This has been a general issue with the CCA and I underestimated it.

    Looking forward, changes are going to be made with how we orient the lore and event-making process on the server, trying to find a way to get more than one person working on an event at one time and enabling the best possible communication between event organizers. I'm sorry for wasting a lot of your time today with something that was near-voidable levels of bad, but I have a lot to reflect on which should bode well for the future of the server.

    Please post if you have any specific complaints or confusions about anything related to things going on around the event, or things you think I can learn from. It's been a problem long time coming, but we all want to make events as interesting, fun and healthy as can be.
