The Story Guide Posted August 22, 2012 Share Posted August 22, 2012 The assignments were sent out after the third "incident" in less than a week. They still had time, it was determined, but a team needed to be in place; profiles were reviewed and members selected. Each person received a priority encrypted OpMail with directions to the orientation meeting, including the warp-pass for those that did not live on Luna. The facility was impressive and large, one of the DeVries buildings on the industrial far-side of Earth's moon. Their passes were checked and rechecked by DeVries personnel before they were escorted to a plush meeting room with just enough chairs for the team and holowalls that gave the incredibly realistic impression that they were sitting in a skyscraper over the Elysium Urbem skyline on Mars. So far, the mission lead, Peacekeeper Krayton, had not yet arrived, but then there is still a few minutes before the briefing is to begin. DeVries Employees This facility is a training center for DeVries Elites, specifically those to be trained for off-Earth or space missions. The security is normal for a facility like this, and being assigned here is usually a sign of a rising esteem in the company. Successfully completing training for off-world missions usually comes with a nice pay increase and qualification for much more dangerous missions - the double-edged sword of advancement with DeVries. Also, it requires successfully completing the training; many trainees drop out or are removed before the end of the first week, though most trainees have to spend years requesting training before being given their shot. Utopians Peacekeeper Krayton is one of the higher ranking members of the Martian Team, the Utopian team that oversees Mars as a whole. He's also a brilliant tactician, able to keep his own even with some mentally-oriented novas. He is also incredibly demanding and exacting with people under his command, a consequence of focused, moderate OCD. It's highly unusual for Krayton to be away from his team or Mars and he hasn't trained new Peacekeepers for years - a fact that many older Peacekeepers bemoan, as they claim new recruits are coddled and soft without the 'trial by Krayton'. Everyone Please post your character arriving. This is a chance for some on-the-job socializing, but mostly I just want a 'roll call' to make sure everyone is here and ready to go.
