An Abandoned Lighthouse - Torch Canon Event - 11/1/17

    Hi there! I'm going to be running a canonical event one week from today! This event will differ from some expectations, because this event will take place on the Torch and it will serve as the first in a series of events that will expand on lore and potentially even cause some things to change, depending on the actions of the crew! This is, in my opinion, our truest attempt at living lore, and I hope to make this run very well.

    The synopsis of this first event is as follows, and this will appear in the event text of the round: "The SEV Torch has been called on by ExCom to investigate a small signal coming from a nearby system. While reports indicate that this system is devoid of any planetoids or anything large enough to harbor life, something was detected by an automated probe right before it jumped out of the system. As the Torch enters the system, they come across what appears to be an ancient, badly battered vessel, seemingly left afloat to be eventually obliterated by asteroids. They initiate docking procedures and begin to move towards it.."

    The Torch will make contact with the ship automatically (I'll just pilot the ship to the Torch and say that it was an automated docking procedure run by the ship) and the event will all take place on the Torch Z-level.

    If anyone would like to help play in it or sprite, let me know. :)

    I'd be down for this, but might have some scheduling issues. If you're in desperate need of another set of typing fingers, though, hit me up on Discord.

    Do you have a general idea of what time this event will happen? I can't really attend 3 hour things that I can't provide advance notice of to my coworkers

    Update:

    Event is likely to take place around 12-1 Central time, depending on when the previous round ends. I'm going to be trying to run it during the earlier part of the timeslot. If requests are made I may run this again on Thursday for those who missed it, but that's not a guarantee.

    At some point, yes. This is part of a series of events, and so people knowing what happened in the first one will be important. :p
