October - November Star System

Drift Fleet is officially three years old this month! As we have noted previously, the metaplot has been ramping up to this, the last major plot of the year. The culmination of players’ efforts over the past several systems and their actions in this one will have a major impact on the outcome of the plot as well as what will happen in the future.

Due to the intense nature of the upcoming event, we’re offering a variety of options that allow you to play in your comfort zone. We don’t want anyone to feel pressured or left out. If none of the options in this post suit you, please contact us via PM and we’ll work something out. ♥

TRIGGER WARNINGS FOR THIS PLOT INCLUDE:
  • Excessive Violence, Gore if players so choose
  • Cannibalism (implied in plot writeups, can be played with by players)
  • DEATH
  • High-Stress/Traumatic Situations
  • Torture/mutilation (implied in plot writeups)
  • Human Sacrifice

    If that hasn’t scared you away - well, first, Happy Almost Halloween! Second, keep reading to find out what’s going on with this planet…

    It's about to get real... )

    at the end of everything we had

    Ever since the Fleet began raising warnings about some vague, red-tinted, death-themed, horrible planetwide event that would befall the poor planet of Lyuku, natives have been a little touchier than usual. Most are skeptical, but a still significant number of them are not. While some of the wealthier families have the option to board a spaceship and go somewhere else for a while - and a few are doing just that, thanks - most people hearing about this Prophetic Dream of the End are just plain scared and not sure where to go or what to do.

    Experts study the planet closer, to make sure they didn't overlook anything they should know. Astronomers look to the skies, checking and double-checking and re-checking every last detail for any hint of danger. Unfortunately... they find it, having just barely moved within a range they're capable of reading. It's coming in fast. And it isn't stopping.

    On the night of the 16th, the usual bustling night-life on Lyuku pauses for the first time in ten thousand years. The merrymakers fall silent, the music grinds to a cacophonous halt, and everyone looks upward. There is a rapidly-moving shooting star across the sky, but the problem is that it shouldn’t be there. No one said anything about a comet passing this close. Consult all the palms and tea leaves you want, but the spirits are silent about this.

    After a few hours, the authorities send out an announcement over all channels, playing on every communicator able to pick up the signal and the yelling in the streets:
    People of Lyuku, and visitors from elsewhere-- everyone who revels in the Prince’s warmth and life, who lives and explores this beautiful planet… All of us are in danger. A large object from outside our solar system has been caught in our planet’s gravity and it is on a direct collision course with our world.

    There is hope as long as we stick together. Gather your belongings and your loved ones and follow the directions of your local authorities at the landing areas. We will need to prepare the Eynewa Space Station, but we are able to accommodate everyone, and sustain them until we find refuge. Supplies and hands are needed. Evacuation begins now.

    And on less official channels:
    Oh my god. We’re going to fucking die here. Oh my fucking god. … fuck.

    For all their technology, foresight, and fortune-telling-- they somehow missed the celestial object now hurtling toward their planet at a billion miles per hour. The only course available to the residents of Lyuku is to leave their planet behind.

    CALENDAR:
    → September 16th: A giant meteor is spotted within range of Lyuku, and it is headed on a collision course. Evacuation begins immediately. A mingle post will go up shortly.
    → September 22nd: The meteor collides with Lyuku. There will be an IC post for this event.
    → September 28th: Atroma pulls away from the remnants of the Eyuzi system. Drift begins.

    SEPTEMBER STAR SYSTEM

    The Marsiva continues its drifting, tugging everyone along behind it, for about a week. Once everyone makes it through the rather light asteroid field, they will be greeted with a wonderful planetary view... as well as a somewhat familiar surge through the comms.

    CALENDAR:
    → The fleet will be in this system from 9/1 to 9/28.
    → There will be a significant plot event on 9/16. More details will be given then.

  • Allura
  • Chloe Price

    If there is an error, please contact us right away so it can be fixed! Otherwise, players who have been swept from game have until 12/1 to re-apply without requiring an invite.

    Drifting, ahoy!

    First: We would like to apologize, dear fleet - scheduling got a little off, and so, drifting is happening a couple days late. We're sincerely sorry!

    However! As of this post, the fleet is now pulling away from the Kayanni system, with a course already set toward locations unknown! We will be drifting from 8/26 to 8/31. Your usual garden variety waystations can be found along the way, so get out and stretch your legs a bit if you feel like doing so.

    A minor, but special note: On the last two days of drifting, give or take, (so: 8/30 and 8/31) the fleet will enter a very sparse asteroid field! No fancy piloting or dodging necessary, but it's quite a sight nonetheless. So, enjoy the view! And hey, play some shuttle hide-and-seek, if you're really bored!

    Stay tuned: we will approach a new system on 9/1! We would also like to call to your attention that the September system, as well as the October system, will have far more involvement plot-wise... so be prepared, contestants!
