The portals close few weeks later - and as they do, a general sense of closure seems to have fallen upon the Earth Sphere. It is as if the crazy last years are really, finally over.

The life in post-Second Impact reality does not become easier. Daily struggles to rebuild are a norm. Bandits, space pirate attacks and even larger incidents are not out of question. And yet... the everyday existence somehow seems safer. Humanity can focus on reaching back towards its former glory, rather than fighting tooth and nail to prevent death by alien invaders or thwarting some maniac's plan to take over or brainwash the whole world. Also, humans are not alone. Earth Sphere made some friends, and they are there to help and assist.

The future looks bright.


Smith Weston decided to stay behind with the remains of White Chalice. A memorial park was established around them, and he found happiness as its keeper/self-appointed captain.


Dan became something of an AI genius loci of the park. He shared stories of White Chalice, its travels and sacrifices to anyone who was willing to listen.


Ayame Jin - or rather, Anna Alkaev, decided to keep a low profile. She became a wanderer, traveling around the world, visiting places that White Chalice had an impact on. She always observed much, but spoke little.

Other crew members of White Chalice and survivors of Kairos Aspida went their own seperate ways, to rebuild their lives in the new reality with various degrees of success. But most did not forget the bonds forged during those special days.


What happened to Maxene Trendie is a mystery. Even though she willingly stayed with Demonbane in the distant past, there were rumors of a mysterious woman similar to her resurfacing here and there. None of them were ever confirmed.


Yet one question remains - what fate awaits you, the pilots and combatant crew members of White Chalice? What have you done with your lives once the adventure is over?

[In this post, feel free to describe what happened to your characters in the months or even years following the game's conclusion. Please don't powergame or step on other canons' toes - keeping that in mind, share your characters' fate with others.

Players and characters who are no longer in the game are welcome to post anyway.

Victory!

"We've won! Take that, ye oversized lobsterman! Now I'll show you how a captain parties!"

The Primeval Force has been defeated, and now is the time to celebrate. The White Chalice is gone except for a smoking wreck - remains of the bridge, but at least Captain Smith and Dan are alive! Enjoy yourselves, who knows what tomorrow will bring, but today you are champions of the whole Earth Sphere... no. The universe.

Also Dan is there, his holographic projection looking around in an equal mix of elation and wild confusion. Was he even programmed to experience such extreme emotions?

[2]

But not everyone likes lively revelry. For some, quiet contemplation is more appropriate. Especially since the victory was not without sacrifice - were it not for Bismuth paying the price of his life, Primeval Force would still be free to wreck havoc and destruction. And he's far from the only one who lost his life during the final battle.

One of those who prefer to be alone right now is Ayame... or Anna Alkaev, if you prefer.


"So it's finally over."

She looks at the wall of rememberance, saved from White Chalice.

"Inessa..."

[3]

One more thing to consider. After Primeval Force was destroyed, portals opened around Earth Sphere. Those portals lead to universes some of you came from - now you can come back. There is just one thing though... they are one-way only. Once you go, you cannot return to this version of the Earth Sphere. It is a bittersweet decision of returning home or staying with your allies whom you helped save the world.

You have at least a week or two before the portals close, and then they will stay closed - possibly forever. What kind of decision do you make?

Clan Jade Falcon is already making preparations to return for example.

This happens DURING the incident with Kairos Aspida, with White Chalice's controls, doors, lights and other systems going haywire, not to mention possibly all the shaking from blasts and explosions.

And yet, since Dan doesn't have control over White Chalice for this moment, someone else can use this opportunity to escape...

Those of you not in the mission - you have an opportunity to talk to someone right before an escape pod launches itself and leaves the Chalice to disappear somewhere far away behind the horizon. Someone who appears on a nearby terminal - it's not Dan.

It's ALICE! And the other person who left in the escape pod is Caulder!


[2]
Post-mission. We were miraculously NOT attacked by Kairos Aspida - they decided not to take action until it's fully understood just what the hell happened. But they left and warned us to stay away for a while, unless we want what remains of the cease fire to perish completely. Hopefully mission logs will help shed some light on this matter.

In the meantime, Ayame is directing some engineering operation.

"We are removing the Primeval Force generator installed in White Chalice. It was offline and had enough safety measures to prevent it from turning itself on."

"But that's not enough. Whatever happened out there was related to Primeval Force. The generator just being connected was enough for Dan to lose control of White Chalice's systems, even if only partially. I can only imagine what would happen if it was turned on."

"..."

"This generator is what Kairos Aspida was after. Or rather, its unique function. It allows White Chalice to teleport, unerringly and across large distances. Kairos Aspida is a relatively small force. They would need this in order to play 'world police', travel fast across the globe to prevent incidents as they happen."

"I don't have to say this, but recent events prevent us from activating this function - or handing it over to Kairos Aspida."

Suddenly, White Chalice starts to change course. What's going on? Maybe Dan can explain as he suddenly explains?

"Everyone, we just received an urgent message. And this time it's from Kairos Aspida!"

Message and reactions to it )

Considering her recent behaviour, there's no choice but to consider ALICE dangerous - and unstable. The Captain and I agreed to put her in confinement, or the equivalent of one for AIs.

Her mobile server is in a locked and monitored room now. The only way to talk to her is through a terminal next to the room, which is disconnected from the rest of the ship's network. Dan is working hard to analyze the rest of the network as we speak, to make sure she didn't leave behind any backdoors or copies of her routines.

I'm sorry it had to end like this.

[Maxene just finished performing surgery on still-unconscious Caulder.]

Ah, don't worry. He'll live. All that blood looked pretty bad, but it's all shallow cuts. Minor damage to one of the eyes, but nothing I didn't fix already. He'll be seein' just fine.

All he needs is to remain in bed for a while now. To rest.

[This post is for talking with NPCs/general reactions. If you want to converse with ALICE or Caulder, they will make their own posts. When he wakes up in latter's case.]

It's understandable that after the Kairos Aspida operation, some of you might want to have questions for Ayame. Or, as her sister called her, Anna.

You can find the XO not at the bridge, or her room - but in a bar. Where she is looking glum and drinking, really heavily.

"..."

"Fuck it."

She stands up and leaves, her steps shaky and unsteady. So much for questions, huh?


"Can I help you with anything?"

If you try to follow her, you get stopped by Dan. Maybe he at least knows something. Anything.

White Chalice receives a transmission. No, everyone in the world receives a transmission. The unknown force who appeared after the Inspectors' last stand have technology powerful enough to send this to everyone in Earth Sphere at the same time.

The feed shows an inside of a ship's bridge - a very advanced looking one. You can see someone who must be the captain, standing there sternly and wordlessly, half of his face mutilated horribly.


Behind him, three other people who somehow seem important as well.


But it's a young, modestly-dressed man with long hair who does all the talking.

"Everyone. People of Earth - please listen to what I have to say!"

"Two hundred years from now on, Earth faces destruction. Our beautiful planet could not endure so many cataclysms, those that were no fault of humanity, and regrettably those that were. But not all is lost - the future may be changed! We are here to ensure that. We left our homes and families behind to jump to the past - your present, to change the course of history."

"We are Kairos Aspida. You may call us a non-government organisation, but we have neither political influence nor monetary gain on our minds, only well being of humanity and Earth itself. Thanks to efforts of Earth's most brilliant minds, we hold in our hands incredible energy, Primeval Force. Mastering this Force is what allowed us to jump back in time. It is much more powerful than anything you are familiar with."

The feed changes into live footage: an army of unknown-looking robots, accompanied by different units flying in the sky, levitating near the ground, and much larger non-humanoid ones that walk the earth. The camera moves up, to show a fleet of capital ships surrounding a familiar, massive hulk of what must be the flagship.

Is this supposed to be a demonstration of military might? The feed switches back to the bridge.

"Technology we brought from our present - your future, will allow us to avert the sad fate our Earth has faced. No, more than just that: we will create a new world, a safe world, one where humans of the Earth Sphere are not afraid of hunger, of disease, of violence inflicted by aliens, monsters or fellow man. I am Petar Vukoja, the leader of Kairos Aspida expedition, and I talk to you from the bridge of our ship, Bastion of Insolence. I reach out my hand to you, and beg you to take it! Let us create a better future, together. Together we are Kairos Aspida, the shield to protect Earth from ravages of time!"

"In return we ask you of only one thing, to return what was stolen from us. You are familiar with a heavy carrier White Chalice - it is Kairos Aspida property, stolen by a treacherous woman you know under the name Ayame Jin. An ex-Kairos Aspida member, she is deceitful and selfish. She is not to be trusted - do not offer shelter nor aid to her, or to those who follow her. You will end up with your back stabbed. Help us retrieve White Chalice instead, and our gratitude shall be eternal."

"As for those who are crew of White Chalice itself - I know you are watching, and I have this to say."

Petar leans in closer to the camera. Uncomfortably close - all the more unnerving that his expression does not change one bit.

"Follow not Ayame Jin's orders, nor those of her puppets. Kairos Aspida realizes that her words may have sounded noble, even though in reality she was manipulating you - and for that, we forgive you. Stop listening to her and we will be friends, all fellow humans working for a common good."

"Oppose us, and you will not stand a chance."

[The one-sided transmission ends. Reactions/comments?]


[2]
"Where do I start. So it finally comes to this."

Following the Kairos Aspida transmission, Ayame Jin makes a ship-wide announcement of her own. She seems to have calmed down somewhat, but is still visibly shaken.

"What you just heard is true. Both me and White Chalice are from the future. This is why it has unique technology unavailable anywhere else in the Earth Sphere, such as the teleporters."

"What Petar is not telling you is that Kairos Aspida is a tyrannical ruler. Yes, they united the whole planet under one rule and provided everyone with basic necessities, but they did so by sacrificing a lot of individual freedom and civil liberties. For example, in the future everyone's profession is determined by the government. Individual countries are not even allowed to maintain their own military forces, instead they must rely on Kairos Aspida on protection."

"This is why when I heard of Kairos Aspida plans to return back in time and conquer Earth two hundred years earlier, I had enough. I betrayed them. I managed to take control of their at the time flagship, White Chalice, and steer it back two hundred years into the past. HALO was reverse-engineered from White Chalice's technology, an effort to prevent the Second Impact from happening. It failed of course, but I think... the flow of time has been changed already. There was no HALO or Adventus in my timeline's past. Inspectors also wrecked the planet badly when they came, but you defeated them instead."

"Obviously I have no intention of giving White Chalice back to Kairos Aspida, and Captain Smith agrees with my decision. I hope world leaders will find Petar's tale hard to believe. White Chalice will have trouble with supplies if suddenly all our allies decide to side with Kairos Aspida instead."

"If you have any questions, ask me in person."

[This is the prompt for people who indeed, have questions to ask of Ayame.]

[personal profile] srwuga_mods
As some of you might be aware, Axis Zeon's plans to conquer other space colonies at some point in the future were unveiled some time ago. In light of this revelation, we've decided that we cannot aggravate our relations with the colonies and their allies by hosting Zeon dignitaries on White Chalice.

Haman Karn and Char Aznable have been asked to leave the ship. Furthermore, should a conflict between Axis Zeon and another group friendly towards us erupt, White Chalice will likely join the battle on the other group's side, against Zeon. I'm afraid the times when we could afford to stay neutral in such situations are long gone.

This is all. Ayame out.

[Private to Mad]

[Ayame walked up to Mad, arms folded as she was flanked by three of the ships strongest SS classes; Scott, Jo and Tsukasa. She had a very displeased look on her face as she approached the girl.]

Mad Caine, you need to come with us. You've threatened and assaulted members of our crew unprovoked. You're going to have to spend some time in the brig. Will you come quietly?


[Video]

In the future, please remember again, to report things to us. We were lucky enough to get forewarning of certain people's actions in the last two days from Eri Kurumu and several other concerned parties. In the future, if you see someone attempting to take their life, inform security immediately. This is not a contained issue as it affects the whole crew.

Mad Caine has been brigged for a period of time until she is ready to rejoin the crew. She is allowed visitors but only for an hour a day.

[It's conference time onboard the Chalice as repairs once again begin to fix the damaged that's been inflicted on it.  And joining Ayame and Sumeragi is the pilot of the AEUG ship that helped turn the tide in the last battle: Bright Noah.]


Behind closed doors )

[Later]



Well then, ladies and gentlemen, I suppose it's time for us to explore a dangerous new frontier.  Something very precious was stolen from us and our quarry has a sizeable lead... so we'll be needing to take a bit of a shortcut to close the distance before they slip away entirely.

We're going to go through the American southwest.  Straight through the Ruin.  For those of you who know what this entails, it'd be wise for you to start preparing.  For those of you that don't... well... let's just say it's region where the land itself hates robots even more than Adventus did.

If we tread carefully however... well, nothing horrid should come out of it.

Kurokawa Seiren. I heard about your condition. To keep you and everyone else on the ship safe, we need to put you into the brig for observation. Our doctors will do their best to help you, and they will release you when your state becomes stable.

I ask you to go willingly, but if you refuse I will have to use force.

2. [A ship-wide announcement.]

I'd like to remind everyone that if you know someone whose state makes them a danger to other people on White Chalice, you should let me or Dan know instantly instead of trying to keep it a secret. Even if that person is a member of your team. Especially if that person is a member of your team.

Don't do that again. You know who you are.

[It's a curious sight indeed when spontaneously throughout the entire Chalice, suddenly all viewscreens -even those currently off or not even functioning- suddenly change to display the same thing: dozens of TSAB officers screaming, clutching their head, and rolling around on the floor with music blaring loudly in the background.]



What in God's name, Dan, fix this at-



No.  This is... important.  We need to hear her out.

[It's time.  Thanks to Bian feeding you the location of the prison and Phillip and Shotarou relaying information back and forth currently the White Chalice fleet is currently stationed right outside of the sensor range of the prison facility.  The base is huge, with entire squadrons patrolling the surrounding area, some of it Federation, some of it Adventus.]



Captain, would you like to say anything to everyone before we begin?



Indeed I would!

EVERYONE!  IN CASE YOU GET CAUGHT, BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR GET-OUT-OF-JAIL FREE CARD ON HAND!



[Aaaand cue headsigh before Ayame opens up a fleet-wide broadcast.]

Alright then people.  Believe it or not, we're the diversion here for the DC's own offensive into Adventus territory.  And that's fine by me.  Everyone, we're going to be betting it all on this and we'll either be leaving this place together or we'll be joining our comrades already imprisoned.  We have intel and we have a link to our comrades on the inside.

And most importantly I think I speak for everyone when I say I want to take back everything and everyone who was taken from us.

We've all discussed plans of attack and how we're going to do this, but that's in the past now.  Now's the time to make good on everything we said.



[Now cue Dan, in full military regalia!]

RIGHT!  All pilots and crewmembers, prepare for battle!  On-foot teams, standby for insertion via Getter!  Shotarou, send everyone inside a line so they can time their breakout with this!

ALL FORCES... CHAAAAAAARGE!

(Here it is!  We've plotted to a degree and the time for action is now!  There'll be several "fronts" for this, each with its own thread and probably we'll have subthreads too.  Keep in mind to not go around godmoding things and let everyone take part in the awesomeness... and if you want to discuss and carry out some event with the mods specifically or just have a question to ask, drop one of the mods a line.)

As for Samus, after the mission she's been quite busy. These were not normal Metroids. They were hideously mutated, and that strange splitting they did and shifting weaknesses were troubling - while to most people these are Metroids and that's that, Samus knows that the jellyfish shape is just the larva. And whatever these larvas would grow into, it would be to something nobody has seen before. Therefore, she detailedly scanned each of the Metroids in the station before killing them, and dumped the information as well as one of the analysis programs from her suit onto a laptop.

And so, now, anyone who goes by the Arboretum will get a glimpse of a frowning, focused Samus with a laptop sitting on her crossed legs, many lines of text and diagrams flashing in front of her. She's obviously thinking of a lot more than what's on the screen as well... it's really quite unusual to see Samus looking any kind of worried, though.

Bother her for information?

Where: 30 Bunch, now one of the Rider Cities in the Earth Sphere
When: In the leadup to the mission Prime Suspects

[Rather than send the whole of the Chalice to 30 Bunch, a smaller transport shuttle has been dispatched instead, housing all of you.  As you near the colony a number of pre-recorded warnings begin to be transmitted, warning of the remaining nerve gasses still inside.  However, the woman in charge of this operation can't help but laugh a little.]

 

Not sure if those are just holdover from before this place was renovated or not, but either way you have to hand it to them for being thorough.

[Still though, as the ship nears one of the docking ports, Ayame grows a tad more serious, shifting around and focusing.]

Anyways, long story short, we're going into this half-blind so be careful.  We expect to be fighting Mirror Monsters, Undead, and these... [she checks the papers that Maxene provided her regarding the exploratory autopsy] "Metroids"..., and we expect that these three groups will also be fighting each other.

Why?  Well, hopefully if you crack enough skulls we can find out who's behind all of this.  If it's one of the Riders, well, I wouldn't be surprised.  Anyone who's seen the Ryuki documentaries should know that the originals were less than model citizens, so that'll make things easier on any on your consciences.  And if we don't find out, there's the whole issue of these things are monsters, if they keep fighting like this, 30 Bunch may be destroyed, at which point they could just hop over to one of the colonies at Side 1 actually inhabited by people.  So keep that in mind.

And yes, I know all too well about our track record with visiting colonies, but you know what they say: best way to stop a fire at an oil well is to blow it out with napalm.

Lastly, if anyone hasn't seen the Kamen Rider Blade documentaries, be aware that the Undead are functionally immortal and indestructible... but they can still be knocked unconscious well enough.

[And with that, the shuttle stops, its doors opening up to reveal a surprisingly well-maintained, although deserted, airlock.]

Alright the, time to get cracking!

(Christ, another battle post, and so soon!  At any rate, everyone gets to channel their inner Celestial Being by intervening here.  On one side we have the Mirror Monsters and on the other there's the Undead, and on top of that, there's the Fission Metroids from Metroid Prime trying to suck the life force out of everything too!  Answers about who's behind the breakdown between the two sides of the colony and why will come later, after I'm done with classes today.

EDIT: I'll be setting up the OOC chat after classes as well, so we can coordinate everything.)

[Since rationing started aboard White Chalice, Devon has yet to pick up her daily allotment of food. She eats precious little anyway - but that's still more than nothing, and despite ignoring her ration it doesn't seem like she's starving. And this is because...]

1. [Tricky but NOT impossible to hack.]

[When few people are around, suddenly the door to the pantry opens and from the storage area leaves, who else but Devon. Wait, how did she get there? And considering she holds an apple, or perhaps a single bread roll in her hand, it's obvious that someone is ignoring the rationing rules and stealing food.

And worst of all, she doesn't look like she cares about it at all.]

2.
Hmm?
[Sitting somewhere, consuming the aforementioned stolen bread roll, apple or whatever.]

CURRENT LOCATION: Over the Atlantic Ocean, near Bermuda.

So... uh... you see... that is...

[Dan's image on the screen is somehow usurped by the ridiculous image of Smith Weston standing on the roof of the bridge swinging around a golf club!]

You BLASTED VARMANTS! Costing me my milk and cookies! I should put a plank by the airlocks I say! That'll teach ya to steal my tea!

[Dan's image appears in a small box in the corner of the window.]

Yes, you see as Captain Weston is say...

[Smith Weston cuts him off again.]

The next time you all think you can galavant around my ship painting walls and building whatever you want I'll...

[Then the entire screen goes dead inexplicably. A strange looking woman some of you may have seen before appears in the middle of the apparently otherwise off screen.]

Hello brothers and sisters of the White Chalice. Confirming with Ayame, we decided a more... cohesive explanation of our situation was needed. Do to a cavalier attitude some have had, our food supplies are gettin' low. You guys gettin' beat up so much has also created a shortage of parts.

Until such time that we can restock, we will all have to go without. We have an alotta water, but food will be rationed. The pantry has been made off limits except under the strict supervision of Dan, Ayame Jin, Misato Katsuragi, Hayato Jin, Sumeragi Noriega, Mio Sakamoto, Forte Stollen or myself. Food will also be inventoried daily, and according to Ayame: "If our stores end up below the expected amount for the day, everyone will go hungry the following day to make up for it. And I do mean EVERYBODY." So let's please not sneak any snacks, as I for one am gettin' hungry already just thinking about it.

Repairs are still being done, however all non essential repairs, upgrades and remodels have been suspended until farther notice.

For those you you who are unaware, I am Maxene Trendy. I am a ships Doctor, so if anything ailsya, by all means come find me.

[Following this, the screen reactivates and Dan and Smith Weston appear. Though Smith is basically just ranting and raving and Dan is ignoring the viewers and being quite unsuccessful at calming him down. After a minute or so of it the image on the screen shuts off again. This time returning to whatever the screen was previously doing before the announcement.]

EVENT RULES: This is exactly as Maxene Trendie says, the White Chalice is running critically low on food and has a shortage of parts as well. Everyone is getting a fairly meager portion of food each day (though people can more or less still have all the water they want) and if the food inventory is ever below the expected amount, everyone gets nothing the next day (the injured being the single exception to this). It was unstated, but anyone found stealing will meet... unfortunate consequences. In addition to this, all mecha upgrades, unnecessary repairs (such as paint jobs or other purely aesthetic additions) have ceased until farther notice. Yes, this means that any of you who put in upgrade requests that have not yet been introduced will not have them completed until this event is over.

((OOC: You may or may not have gotten this speech, but if you were recruited and welcomed by Dan you probably got something like it. Feel free to comment here as if you were present for this or something like it and thread. Also as of this moment, all characters currently aboard the White Chalice may freely post! Also: Here are the room assignments for the characters confirmed aboard ship.))


[A semi transparent young man blurs in front of you as you enter the Promenade, he is obviously a hologram. He has a wide earnest smile on his face. Sitting on a chair lazily next to him is an old man. He looks rather out of it, but every so often he gives you a glare which seems not quite right.]

: Welcome compatriots! As most of you know, my name is Dan and I am the AI which oversees this ship! [He struts around, obviously entirely for show] The area you are about to...

[The old man cuts him off.]

: Dan! Didn't you learn anything! We can't trust ANYBODY!

[Dan looks at him for a moment then turns back to you, ignoring him completely.]

: As I was saying. This is the promenade. Through there are the residential areas where you will be staying, and through...

[The man interrupts him again. Though he seems to be talking to you guys now.]

: You better not be going anywhere that's off limits ya hear? I'm watching you!

[A light snicker might catch your attention, a woman with long dark hair wearing a white lab coat is standing by the wall near Dan and the old man.]



[She seems entirely amused. Regardless, Dan continues.]

: Ahem. As Captain Weston was saying, certain areas of the ship are off limits to most personnel. But that shouldn't be a problem, the ship is large and has plenty of room!

[Yeah... you heard that right... CAPTAIN Weston. Dan POINTEDLY ignores any and all attempts to get his attention regarding this. The woman is doing everything she can to not burst out laughing.]

: So I hope you all have a...

: Unless you play golf! You can always bring your clubs to the bridge for a game!

[The woman shakes her head and moves to the man.]

: Come now Smith. Let's go get your clubs.

[She then leads him away. Though he still makes one more call as she leads him away.]

: And don't forget! I rent out clubs by the hour!

[Dan waits until they're gone to continue.]

: As I was saying, I hope you all take advantage of the resources available and enjoy your time aboard.

[He then disappears.]

The comm opens for general posting to those who are aboard the White Chalice on Monday, June 20th. That said, we don't know who is with the White Chalice fleet from the beginning of the game. This post's purpose is to rectify this fact.

So without further ado: which of your characters are starting aboard the White Chalice, and how did they get there? If you want to combine intro stories, go ahead. This is your chance to create a back story for the start of the game in the form of how we all got together. Have fun!

Stuff you would know about the NPC crew:

Ayame Jin: The ship's doctor and XO is a more recent addition than the captain, but she has nonetheless been on the ship for quite some time. While she is technically the commanding officer, she considers herself a doctor first and an XO second and for the most part stays out of the crew's affairs unless she needs to intervene. Those who have been around will tell you to make sure this doesn't happen.


Dan: Being the ship's internal AI, it's difficult to guess when exactly he came aboard, though this is probably irrelevant. What matters is that he is eagerly searching for both a crew and affiliated compatriots and accepts almost everyone with open arms; for better or for worse.


Smith Weston: The captain of the ship who alternates between being incredibly impassive and entirely crazy. About the only thing you probably know about him aside of that he is the captain of the ship is that he is senile. How he became the captain is anyone's guess. Dan insists the reason is top secret classified information and won't say anything more.
