Mysterious Robot Terrorist Identified!

Live at 7 it's QWZX your favorite news source. After a few days of effort and research the internet and collective public belive they have identified the primary hijacker in the flight UA1670 incident as erratic billionaire Sir Walter McCloughlin. Seeming to act as the ring leader of this escapade McCloughlin has been previously seen using this robot body as a means of communication. While some initial outcries said exactly this moments after the event was live streamed, they were silenced by the bot farms employed by McClaughlin soups inc. Now though the evidence is indisputable. The identidy of one of the other members is still in some question but the third accomplice seems to be disgraced superstar Thugnificant. What odd turn of events caused these three to team up we might never know. 

The three hijackers were apprehended by police and are presumably still being questioned. As these actions fall under established terrorism law the government can hold them almost indefinitly due to the patriot act. As of yet no statement has been released regarding the hijacking, but we will keep you informed!

Illuminated Earth

Illuminated Earth is a twisted reflection of the modern world where the advent of smartphones and the internet confirmed the existence of the supernatural instead of disproving it. Here, witch hunts have merit. Billionaires and Senators employ paranormal advisors and bodyguards, and everyone knows. Charlatans become pop culture icons, and each revelation inspires a new cult. The world is changing. The secret societies that pull humanity's strings scramble to adapt.

Now's a good time to move up.

House Rules

Contractors from Void_Of_Scott Are portable, and may play in Contracts in other Playgroups.
  • Contractors: Contractors should want to take jobs and only refuse those they see as wildly dangerous. Don't make a contractor that doesn't want to work.
  • Have a goal, or a reason to want to take contracts. It shouldn't be I want to pay rent, it should be something you need supernatural help to accomplish.

Full Setting Description

They named that time The Illumination, and it was by the flash of a camera phone.

 

The year was 2004. Until that point the Earth was as we had always known her. We filled her cruel vastness with legends, superstitions, and rumors. Warlocks, monsters, and gods lurked on the edge of the collective consciousness, always a possibility but never more. We lacked evidence. That evidence came as humanity filled its pockets with technology equipped to capture and transmit.

 

An iPhone found on High School senior Nate Klienman’s mangled corpse held a video of his girlfriend’s bone-snapping transformation into a monstrous wolf creature. A Brazilian widow documented a series of conversations with the misty figure of her late husband. A Chinese fishing boat caught a mermaid in a net and put it on display in the Beijing aquarium.

 

Each week brought a new revelation that we were not alone. Superstitions reversed their slow death overnight. Salem held their first witch trial in a century. The jury rendered a verdict of “guilty on all charges” and sentenced Maxibelle Horux to death. A week after her lethal injection, half the jury died from a tainted batch of flu vaccine. A fearful, populist movement arose to rid humanity of the creatures lurking in its ranks. Suspects are forcibly subjected to bizarre tests of their humanity, and the results are often open to interpretation. A mob’s justice is swift.

 

Yet the paranormal is not merely relegated to a persecuted class. Where some see monsters, some see sentience, and others see opportunity. If a vampire can sustain themselves on cloned blood and work the graveyard shift, why not legalize and tax? Politicians and Aristocrats employ odd-looking individuals as "advisors" or "protection." Entertainment magazines publish revelations every week about which celebrities shed their human skins at home. Charlatans of all stripes, from palmistry mediums to televangelists, have flourished despite the risks. The treatment of the paranormal varies from place to place, person to person.

 

Long have cabals, cults, and secret societies thrived in the shadows. Their roots run deeply through humanity’s oldest systems of power. Machinations are challenged, and sleeping dangers awaken. The world is changing, forcing long-dormant powers into desperate action. And it is in the midst of this great period of change that The Powers That Be have once again turned their attention to the blue marble. For the first time in two hundred years, Harbingers approach worthy individuals with an offer they won't refuse.

The Games have returned, and a new generation of Contractors are being forged.

Hero dog foils Terrorist attack!

A terrorist attack was foiled during flight UA1670 going from Sanfrancisco to Hawaii. For reasons still unclear to the public, a group of terrorists lead by the renowned but hated Billionaire Sir Walter McCouglin attempted to hijack the plane mid flight. The group brutally murdered both a small child and a US airmarshal who attempted to prevent the hijacking. The inciting incident was unclear but the aftermath was horrific, a bathroom filled with blood and viscera as well as the previously mentioned dead bodies. The deceased marshal was able to seriously wound one of the terrorists before being killed themselves and afterwards a collegiate running back was able to tackle the lead terrorist. 

 

After the terrorists were contained the passangers recorded their actions for the remainder of the flight. After the flight landed the terrorists were siezed by swat and the plane passengers were questioned. 

 

More news to come following the events of this harrowing case.
