This is Sue. Thank you to everyone who’s participated in this player plot so far! I’ve been having a great time planning this and keeping up with all your threads and plots. Now, things are finally coming to a head on Earth 91c which means it’s time for a player vote to decide how things shake out for the planet and the characters currently on it! A SUMMARY
After arriving on Earth 91c, a few players may have heard whispers of a murder that took place a couple of weeks before their arrival. Said murder involved a Created killing two humans in broad daylight. An anonymous post to the network
later purported that the Created involved, a Program named Kess, had likely been hacked in an unknown way that caused her to lash out in violence. It also included a video of the incident that showed Kess making a strange, rumbling sound during the attack.
Player investigation revealed that Calla, a Program who works in the Gardens entertainment venue, was also hacked shortly before the incident. He described two Creators placing a hexagonal object on his back that caused him to feel agitated and sick, before they were driven off by a good samaritan. Though he himself does not feel compelled towards violence, he was notably left with an audio glitch similar to that which was heard from Kess in the recorded video. (Thanks L, Tex, and Cayde-6 for their investigation!)
While all this was going on, a group of characters were contracted by Atarah, the leader of a group of rogue Created operating out of Rook Manufacturing. Atarah hired these characters to retrieve an object of “symbolic significance” that had been stolen from Rook Manufacturing by anti-Created zealots. The contracted characters Liquid Snake, Cayde-6, Samuel Drake, and Vetra Nyx were chosen to carry out a raid on June 22nd to retrieve the object—an object that, as it turns out, matches the description that Calla gave of the object used to edit him, and likely Kess.
Given its potential to turn normally docile Programs into indiscriminate killers, this object is undeniably dangerous in anyone’s hands. The question is, what should be done with it? THE VOTE
This is an OOC vote, meaning that your character is not voting ICly, and they don’t necessarily know all the information given above. You can vote based on what your character would do if they did
know the above information, or you can vote based on what outcome you as a player believe would be the most interesting. However, if you would like your character to get involved in any of these outcomes (for example, if they would feel strongly enough about their chosen option to steal the object from those who would do otherwise), then feel free to contact me at this account or on Plurk at crimsonxiphos
and I’ll see what I can do to throw them into the mix. Below is a list of potential options you might consider voting for; simply comment below with your choice. The outcome will be announced on June 22nd
so be sure to vote while you can! 1. RETURN THE OBJECT TO ATARAH:
Dangerous or not, the object belongs to Atarah. As the leader of a faction that provides a safe haven to free Created, she can be trusted to use it to resist Earth 91c’s system of AI slavery. 2. HAND THE OBJECT OVER TO THE CCOA:
This object is a danger to everyone who lives on Earth 91c and must be given to those who can be trusted to destroy it. Whatever one’s feelings on the Creator/Created divide, violence is not the answer. 3. KEEP THE OBJECT:
This thing sounds sick as hell and you want to volunteer your character to try and get their paws on it and bring it back to Thisavrou. 4. SOMETHING ELSE?
Feel free to vote for alternatives to the options above!
