Heist Results + New Upgrades!

The party's still rocking, all partygoers oblivious to anything heist-like occurring in the depths of the asteroid's complex! But what will the fleeters find? What's the ultimate result? It's time to find out!

On the heist mingle post, there are now two new toplevels for the final destination and the great escape! Feel free to use those!


The Laboratory
Those taking part in the heist were able to reach the final destination: the underground laboratory. Here, there are many, many computer terminals. Some are filled with information about what's happening in the system - trade routes, political details, some insight into some shadier dealings and goings-on. Other computer terminals have more intriguing info: files on Atroma. These files include speculation about the technology used, in-depth research into AI and computer logistics, and what looks to be investment information. On top of that, some files contain mentions of the Hosts and the Marsiva... It might be prudent to take some of this with you, if you can. Communications augments who went on the heist will of course have much better luck getting into any locked or encrypted files. Copy what you can!

ICly, players are free to get the data. OOCly, we will be answering questions in the comments below! Take the opportunity to do as much digging as you can, before time is up! (We will give it a few days, don't worry!) Any questions that we can't answer just yet will be explained as a data file that was corrupted during transfer or decryption.

But wait, there's more! Out of all of the computer terminals, two of them stand out way more than the others, containing two very important prizes for the heisters to grab:

More Upgrades!
That's right - more upgrades will be available after this! In the interest of not overloading you with information, we will make a new post in the OOC comm shortly, when the upgrades go live, with more information. For now, here is a breakdown of what the Fleet will be getting:
  • Civilian specialization upgrades
  • Lounges for ships
  • The option to merge quarters with another character
  • More windows on ships
  • Upgrades for the Iskaulit, including upgrades for player-made establishments as well as potentially new establishments to "unlock"

The information for these updates can be grabbed from a specific terminal, and once taken back to the Fleet, they will go into the network for purchase, effective immediately.

The AI Unit
This is what the Interceptor Fleet caught wind of. This is what ties Orfwin Dreadhorse to Atroma more than anything. This... is the ultimate prize of the heist.

A massive computer terminal in the back houses this behemoth of an AI program, and it is ripe for the taking. The Interceptors have two drives to copy the AI onto: one for themselves, one for the Fleet to keep. So, plug those drives in, and get going!

No seriously, get going, because once the on-board security system recognizes the unauthorized access (about ¾ of the way through the transfer), there will be alarms. And guards on the way. Oh boy...

The Escape Route
Once those transfers are done, it's time to run like your lives depend on it!! Going back the way you came would be far too risky, given the maze-like nature... but luckily, there's another secret tunnel in the back! Go, go, go!

This tunnel will take all of the heist participants back to the mansion! From there, everyone is welcome to slip back into the party and pretend like nothing serious just happened, or just head right back to their ships. Congratulations - it looks like, at least for now, the heist was a major success! Take your spoils and be proud!!

... There will be more information to come in the next few days. STAY TUNED, DEAR FLEET!

Oh man I'm sorry in advance but Shiro will want to know everything. :P Please corrupts as much as you like, I know these are big questions.

-Who is Atroma? A person? Many? Is it a code name? Do they really exist?
-How are they able to bring people from different worlds?
-What's their real goal? Is it really just a reality show? If it is, how do you end it?
-What is there in the rest of the Marsiva? Is there a way to access it?
-How to return home by our own means?
-Is the augment in their heads sending information to them?

Who are the Atroma?

What have they done previously? What's their history? With the fleet, but more importantly outside of the fleet?

What's their political position? Who are their allies? Do they have enemies?

What is their culture like?

Anything that would help her figure out what they want.

Are there any other effects the augments have on them that they aren't already aware of?

Are people who leave the fleet really sent home?

How are members chosen for the Fleet, and how in turn are they brought here? How is it decided when someone from the Fleet is to be released, and where and when are they sent when that happens?

Who are the Atroma? Where and when do they originate from? What do they gain from the existence of the Drift Fleet? What are the investing their credits into?

What is the full and true purpose of the augments? Do they hinder knowledge as well as grant it? What causes the glitches; if they are purposeful, why are they done? Where and when does the technology originate from? Is there a way to safely remove it? Are there schematics available of the augments?

What part does the AI play in the functioning of the Fleet ships? Where and when does the technology originate from? Are there schematics available of the hardware required to run the AI to go with the source code?

[...]

Does the AI have a name?

- Do contestants really go back to the same time they left home from?
- Did contestants originally agree to be on the show? If so when did contestants start being forced onto the show?
- How the show is broadcast?
- What happens to contestants during calibrations?
- How to stop augment influences?
- How to disconnect ships from Marsiva's orbit?
- Information on Vash from Cycle 12

(And any information he can find about terraforming with Plants like devices without Plants because he's a nerd.)

Nami's with Sam so she'll go by his list and you don't have to answer that twice obv.

But she'll ask him to check on the following additional things:

Other/previous host ships
Other/previous cycles
Any mention of culling-- which may be vague but comes down to running a search on any file that includes that as a word, I guess.

ALSO:
Any and all information that can be found on Diamond and Beau.
What happens to confiscated belongings of passengers?

She's not holding a grudge I swear

Keith is kind of reading over Shiro's shoulder... so he'll be picking up responses there, but he does have a few questions of his own.

- Why is there any doubt over the difference between transportation and replication when it comes to bringing passengers to the Fleet?
- What effects does transportation have on living beings?
- What is the purpose of the AI research?
- How much of the Drift Fleet is run automatically?
- Does the augment send information back to the Atroma?
- Do the Atroma still exist?

[Fenris doesn't overly care about getting to the root of everything. He's quite content to be away from this shitshow that is Thedas. Still, something HAS bothered him since he got here and so: ]

- Does Atroma have any connection to United Earth?
- Does Atroma have any connection to the Initiative?
- Connections Atroma have to worlds which can take people from their original home.
