Summertime, and the livin’ is easy
— but not on Murderworld!
The survivors of TED-Meta have built a pykrete dome near the eastern shore of Nomanisan South, under the many different trees of this strange island. Night fell, the only food gathered so far is coconut, and many of the civilians have difficulty sleeping in these harsh conditions.
Even more so, when Arcade’s announcement played across the island on hidden loudspeakers!
An event of some sort is in progress. There is a “bag limit” per guest. People in white jumpsuits are not valid targets. Opportunities exist in the lake country of the northwest, or there’s a “challenge” available on the south central peninsula.
Arcade must mean the unexpected Wyldfire members of the TED-Meta conference!
Does that mean the woman with the net — the one who looks a little like MMA fighter Katya Kavaleva — is on her way for a rematch against the “Orinson”?
When Silverwing pushes himself, for a few seconds he can sprint at 1704600 miles per hour. That is over two hundred twenty-two times the speed of sound. That is more than six thousand times the speed of non-metahuman thought. But then, his comfortable running speed is already over Mach 2!
He has run to the northwest corner of the island, where he searches for the potential targets of this announced event. He plans to bring any he finds back to the conference group. Hopefully then, everyone can work together to move the civilians to a safer location, and defend each other from whatever may be coming.
Wyldfire members know that when Silverwing stops running after this heroic exertion, he is going to be in rough shape. He will need food, a lot of calories, and a chance to rest. If he has to fight, he may be more susceptible to injury.
- How are you preparing for the new allies?
- How are you moving the civilians to a more defensible location?
- Is anyone making preparations for the moment when Silverwing stops moving?
