Masterra Radio Talk Show-The AMBER: What Is It?
As the Galactic wars are waged around them, Masterra chose to protect itself with isolation and neutrality, having very little contact with other planets and governments. Doing so did protect them from war, but it was also their downfall. An unsavoury crimelord named [member="Terrance Olavi"] took it upon himself to use Masterra for a testing ground for a new product to sell on the black market. It went beyond what mere carbonite could do. In seconds whole cities and their inhabitants could become entombed if he manages to continue to have success with his experiments. It was a great method to control the masses through fear and to get rid of opponents. Even Force Users became trapped. Once the tests on Masterra are completed, the ingredients for this new chemical weapon would become available to the highest bidder at auction.
There are three threads available for this event.
1.THE GOOD (Investigation) - Some startling information about a mysterious AMBER has begun to leak outside of Masterra. It's government, for more reasons than one, had been trying to handle the situation themselves and keep it under wraps. Yet the situation had gotten out of hand.
Players can come to investigate the AMBER and then decide whether to try to stop what's happening, or to side with Terrance and help it along. This thread is open to PvP and there is an inherant risk that your character could become AMBERED. If you're lucky, it won't be permanent. (I accept bribes of Sapir tea!)
2. THE BAD (Research Base Seige) - The recent spread of AMBER has kept many of Masterra's scientists and doctors busy. They've even called in for help from outsiders. One of the Research Bases at Prospect Point believes that they are close to discovering a way to reverse the AMBER. However a traitor in their midst has informed Terrance Olavi, so he has sent his people there to seige the place and get his hands on the scientist close to the breakthrough by any means necessary.
Players here can arrive at the base and either try to help those trapped inside, or join Terrance Olavi's goons and capture the scientist. This thread will be PvE, as well as have some PvP elements. Again there is a risk of being AMBERED.
3. THE UGLY (Anonymous Auction) - Being very happy with the results of his AMBER experiments so far, Terrance Olavi has decided to put it to auction. Although he won't reveal both Catalyst ingredients (unless he's given an offer he simply cannot refuse), he will put up the capsules containing the catalysts for sale. There will also be some AMBER 'art' pieces up for sale, as well as a few weapons.
Players will be able to have their characters bid anonymously as this is a virtual auction taking place on the Holonet on a heavily secured site. The entrance fee is very high, so each character must have considerable funds and/or government or company support. This thread is open to Slicers as well to try to work their way into breaking through the firewalls, security and other means of keeping the bidders' identities a secret, as well as Terrance's location where he has the items to be auctioned off on hand. There is a slight chance for PvP in this thread.
This event becomes LIVE on JUNE 6th (JUNE 7th for some living in the future) and will end no later than JUNE 27th (JUNE 28th)
Players may only use one character in each thread. That character cannot be in any of the other event threads as they are happening near simultaneously. If players are taking part in more than one thread, please sign up in each character account.
