The 2002 Kossei Ridge Radiological Incident (OOC/Slight PT)

Postby Crysuko » Wed Apr 21, 2021 7:01 am

Disasters don't just happen, they're a chain of critical events. Unravel the clues and discover those final Seconds From Disaster.
2002. Soveiniesberg. Kossei Ridge nuclear facility, a recent spate of government spending has tasked the facility with refurbishing the nation's nuclear arsenal, requiring the delicate construction of plutonium cores. it's a lengthy and painstaking process, though the men paid to do it earn a small fortune in hazard pay. Completed cores are placed in a radiation proof casing, and carried by a robotic arm to an assembly area. But, something has gone critically wrong.

The normally well controlled arm malfunctions, and it's claw crushes the casing like a aluminium can, pulverising the radioactive core in the process. A blue flash is seen by all 6 men in the room, and within 72 hours, all will be dead from Acute Radiation Syndrome. The government overseers of the project are shocked, the amount of funding poured into modern tools and equipment is enormous, how could this possibly have happened?

Baffled by this disaster, Soveiniesberg opens up an inquest into the incident, asking the international community to lend investigators and specialists to get to the bottom of what happened, to ensure it never happens again anywhere, and that those men didn't die for nothing. It's time to unravel the clues.

Trenakan National News, Wednesday, May 12th BREAKING NEWS: An amendment to the Trenakan Constitution is proposed in the Reprasentantenhäus, proposing that presidential elections in the future use ranked-choice voting, instead of first past the post voting. It is thought to have bipartisan support, with a majority of Trenakans from all parties supporting it. However, President Schmidt has said that he opposes ranked-choice voting, which could sway enough legislators against voting for it to halt the proposal from reaching a 2/3 majority.

It's just been 2 days. This is kind of a niche RP, so you need to be more patient. The start is great.

Also, nothing kills an RP faster than negativity like calling it 'dead' or 'dying'.
The victim hasn't even entered the ER and you're calling the time of death? Don't be my doc!

Seriously though, it's time to be proactive. Creative bumps that tease a little more info about the RP. Spread the word to friends and make them tell their friends. Ask for more input on fleshing out the details.

Most of all, have confidence that you are going to proceed with a quality RP no matter if it's just 2 of you, or 20 players jump on board. That is what will sell an RP and make people commit is if they know the OP is solid and plans to follow through on what they're promising.

if a grand total of one person showed interest in something you brainstormed ideas for 3 days about, you may understand how disheartening that is. Patient's time of death: 21:50 GMT.

Not helping. I expect more from you for being around as long as you have and knowing how these cycles go. Something that's not a full on noob war or royal wedding takes time to gain traction, and like I said, you have to be more proactive and way less defeatist than this. 2 1/2 days is not the time to throw in the towel before even reaching out to the RP community.

ooc note: hmmm, I've told some people about it but not a lot of people seemed interested, but I guess I will just wait a bit for it to live since I suppose it hasn't lived, so it cannot die yet
I guess I made one of these, now.

How’s the weather up on that high horse? There is no traction to be had, and by the amount of people who have looked at this thread and passed it over, I really don’t know what you’re expecting to happen. 2 and a half days is the time fold hen you realise it’s a dud. You’re defibrillating a corpse now, do the dignified thing and let it die peacefully.

Lol. Well, I gave it a try, but if both OPs are set on failure, then my effort and assistance are no longer desired or necessary. No one's going to join you after reading this chain, that's pretty certain. Good luck in your future RP endeavors, Soveiniesberg.
