    WHO GOES THERE . . ?

    A New Dawn Mini Lore
    Inspired by John Carpenters 1982 Film: The Thing





    [​IMG]





    May 27th, 1982

    You're one of the several other new arrivals at a United States antarctic research outpost set near the South Pole.

    Each of you have a specific role you will play in operating the outpost and furthering the overall scientific understanding of Antarctica.

    This is to be expected of course ...




    [​IMG]





    However the endless winter night is rapidly approaching,

    and your kind is not the only one harbored tight in the bitter frost of Antartica ...

    Yeah, in curious about this as well. It sounds like a cool concept.

    Will we be assigned jobs? Or will we pick from a premise list?

    Or, if we can come up with a job that fits the lore, can it be entered into whatever mix we've got going on?

    Is it North Pole for the Arctic, or South Pole for Antarctica?

    How big is the play area? For those casual players, is there room to only play once every two days, or will it be active in every event?

    North Pole

    The play area isn't very large, mostly just the research station and maybe some other minor buildings, you're able to leave but it's unlikely you'd get very far as the average Arctic winter temperature is -30 F.

    Players will be able to log on every day and experience something entertaining, events are unneeded as there will be ' events ' happening all the time with the players and the Things. So it's encouraged for everyone to log on everyday for the best experience this lore offers.

    North Pole doesn't even make sense, it's ice it constantly shifts, that's why we haven't built any fuckin research stations up there

    They build them in Northern Canada. Like the U.S. Base in the northernmost point of Canada called Alert which warns of incoming Russian attacks.
