HEY Y’ALL!

Your friendly neighborhood Story Team moderator, Jacob, here! I’m here to clue you in on the Unmaking shiz you may have seen happening on Opealon the past few days and open the floodgates (literally) to our new story event, The Nausicaa Incident!

The Nausicaa Incident is a story event similar in style to last year’s smash hit The Siege of Markov on Cevanti, with a few small adjustments just to keep ya guessing. Like the Siege, the Incident is mostly player-run, meaning a staff member (me) will post a starting prompt and parameters and from that point you have pretty much carte blanche to engage with the story however you’d like. The only difference is this story will occur in “Acts,” opening a different plot prompt each act. There are approximately four acts, with big updates by me opening up the next act coming weekly-ish, depending on my schedule and how I judge the story is progressing. I will let you know at least 24 hours beforehand that the story will be progressing to a new act.

In some cases, you are not required to move on to the next act and can continue engaging with the previous act’s story. For example, the first act (and frame story) is the rescue of the citizens of Nausicaa, abd when Act Two opens, you may choose to keep rescuing rather than investigate the new things revealed.

So what exactly IS happening?!

The Unmade presence on Opealon has just made themselves known in a big way. Nausicaa, an affluent suburb of the City of Hope on a neighboring floating island, has been yanked from the air into the ocean and is slowly flooding and sinking into the salty depths. Zachary Comstock and the government of the City of Hope, normally strict isolationists and haters of all things supernatural, will be making the call soon to reach out to the Galaxy and request the help of adventurers to dive into this situation, whether independently or as part of the City’s sanctioned rescue efforts, to save as many people possible. Challenges abound — in addition to the copious flooding and ticking time bomb of the island literally sinking, anybody who goes down there will find it suddenly overrun with vicious unmade enemies, Parademons included, looking to get violent, slaughtering citizens and fighting back against rescue warriors alike.

Once again, you’re welcome to engage however you wish with the rescue effort — how you help might affect the success or failure! What else lies beyond in the story is still a mystery — you’ll find out soon enough. 👀

You may enter the event with any character, PC or NPC, but please be advised to create a sense of danger for these especially dangerous proceedings, NPC entrants are at risk of death. If you’d like your PC to be at risk of death too, lmk and I’ll gladly keep that in mind for the ~drama. Anyone who dies must have a revival item or do the revival quest to come back to life. You are also free to personally kill off your own PC in a dramatic moment if you’d like, a la Ashe-0 in the Siege.

You may also fluid time any PC currently occupied in another thread into this! I don’t want anyone to feel like they can’t participate however they want. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

Whether or not the people of Nausicaa (and the island itself) end up saved is directly proportional to how much engagement there is and the story we all create! I’ll be entering as one of my characters too, so let’s work together to save this bish!

The third and final part of the intro will go up sometime this weekend and the thread will be unlocked and ready for entry on Monday, October 18. Any questions in the meantime can go here for ease of my access. I’d also love to know who is planning on joining up!

(Also, just to sweeten the deal: you never know what’s gonna happen in those later phases… could be something WILD)

Kopaka is literally in the City of Hope right now looking for Unmade to knock around so.

He's already jumped over the side at this point.

How fluid can fluid time be? Because in-character there’s no real way for Doc to participate at this moment, he’s pretty stranded. Can I show up as a version of Doc from before the thread I’m doing right now?

I've got a mini-thread with some others involving a storm. Originally this was a storm that was typical to the Opealon surface, but can I make it canonical that the fall of Nausicca leads to a wild environmental disruption? I'd imagine a storm/tsunami would affect some of the Opealon sea-dwellers, so I don't want to do anything that would wreck other people's plans

I’ll say yes to this!
Can I have Nausicaa be the home for Amalia's mom and dad? To kind of tie her in personally to the story
Yes!

Sure! Makes sense to me!
