This is a call out to able-bodied explorers, scientists and soldiers: EU, XAS and FCON.

A recent expedition into the area on the outskirts of Halon's “Farside” zone has revealed what appears to be a partially underground eldan installation (file number: EI308; codename: “Farspire”) constructed within a yet fully explored, but possibly elaborate natural cave system. The lives of four explorers were lost in its discovery, and the facility—although relatively small from the report of the original team's sole survivor—harbors strain elements and possibly techno-phage creatures. For the sake of further Exile research and development on Nexus, the coalition body responsible for the initial expedition has deemed this facility too valuable to abandon or quarantine. Therefore, a new, larger and more equipped party is planned to form for the purpose of re-entering, securing and documenting the layout and contents of this installation.

Neither safety nor survival is entirely guaranteed. If interested, have your credentials in order and contact one of the explorer captains of this expedition: Doof Biscuithammer. Your application will be relayed to the exploration coalition command and processed therein.

OOC information:

  • DATE: Saturday, Jan. 30th

  • TIME: 9:00pm EST (GMT -5)

  • PLACE: Doof Biscuithammer's plot (EI308 Farspire)

  • SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: There will be 1 combat encounter during the course of this event.

  • Each player has 5 HP. HP will be tracked and adjusted on a spreadsheet by the two GMs running the event. This information will be shared with the participants.

  • There are three combat roles to choose from; It is entirely up to the decision of the player to take on a role or not (none of these roles will be mentioned ICly): TANK, SUPPORT, FIGHTER.
TANK: Has +1 to all evade rolls; Can intercept an attack directed at another player once per round
SUPPORT: Instead of rolling to attack, can grant 1 HP or a +1 to next roll bonus to another party member
FIGHTER: Has a +1 to all attack rolls

  • Please mail Doof Biscuithammer with the details of any acceptable in-character injury should your character's HP deplete to 0 during the fight (even if all you say is "I don't want any injury at all"). You may also detail any injury that you would want to incur regardless of your character's HP by or at the end of the fight. Injury specific information will NOT be shared with other participants!

Signing up!

Send an in-game mail to Doof Biscuithammer titled something like “Farspire” (just so I know) or just message me here on enjin filling out the little list below so I can set up for the fight!

Name: [character name]

Team: [TECH or VANGUARD] (This is an in-character role designation; Is your character a science/tech specialist or a combat specialist? The event will have tailored activities for both!)

Role: [TANK, SUPPORT, FIGHTER or "None"]

0 HP injury: [detail anything or nothing]

Other possible injury: [detail anything or nothing]

Please feel free to just show up and attend the event even if you don't sign up with any character-specific info! I'll accommodate you as a participant for the combat encounter and leave everything intact!

We've already talked in game about this a bit. I've got your back and am perfectly willing to assist in GMing. I'll be back to the game on Tuesday.

ICly Murdock will be doing some last minute research on defensive tech to ensure operative safety in the trenches there. Perhaps it'll be a system that requires remote operators at a fortified external location. This would mean I use one of the color changing toys so attend the event as a hologram, meaning I can stay focused on controlling the environment/enemies when necessary.

Really, really like the sound of this. Cool concept, pretty preview picture. Would very much like to take part when time rolls around, and happy to offer ideas about the areas in progress. Eldan-theme housing things are my (not so) secret love.

Alright, final update. Everything's slated and the new details for everything are in the OP. I'll be working hard to make sure the plot comes together this week! Hope to see plenty of people there!

Alright, final, final update (I promise). The combat roles are now entirely optional and up to the player should he/she feel that a character should have a given role based on that character's personality! If anyone chooses not to detail any injuries or roles (or even sign up at all), they're still very much welcome to the event, and everything will play out as intended. Anyone without combat-specific details will just basically be left totally intact aside from some superficial injuries should anything bad happen to their HP.

If people want to take advantage of character-specific combat roles, do go ahead, but if you'd rather just come and have a good time without emphasizing the combat, you're more than welcome!
