Writing Prompt #6 -- Farewell Ranger O'Malley
After a private service in Ireland, the family and friends of Nolan O’Malley have come to Hawai’i to hold a memorial in honour of the man they all knew and loved. The security at this event is unbreakable, held on the observation deck of the Shatterdome, and guests are welcome to make speeches provided they feel it’s appropriate. Rows upon rows of chairs fill the room with a portrait of the ranger at the front, a heavy atmosphere no matter where you go. There are food and drinks provided but not many feel like eating at such an event. This prompt will take place a month ago, back in the time skip, about a month after Nolan’s death, and you’re allowed to write your response in any form you like.
Writing Prompt #5 -- Fear
The Kaiju named Cujo has been shown to emit a toxic gas that none of K-Science or LOCCENT could have predicted. Civilians in the underground bunkers are mostly safe from it’s paralyzing effects, but the gas has seeped across Oahu and as Cujo makes his way towards the Shatterdome, protected by Alpha Centauri, everyone in the Dome has been effected. The gas instills terrifying fear into it’s victims, creates vivid hallucinations of their worst nightmares, and it seems only time can take away it’s effects. Those fortunate enough to seek out a gas mask before the effects took hold predict that the gas may last anywhere up to an hour, more than enough time for Cujo to potentially destroy the Shatterdome if anything should happen to Alpha Centauri.
As most of the staff have better things to do than dress up for a party, you can consider this our Halloween event. You may write about the prompt in anyway you’d like, and your character could either have been effected by the gas, or grabbed a hold of a mask before it hit the Dome. Happy Halloween~!
| KAIJU ATTACK IMMINENT | ESTIMATED CATEGORY 6 |
…JAEGER CREW ‘ALPHA CENTAURI’ REPORT TO CONN-POD CONTROL FOR IMMEDIATE DEPLOYMENT
…CONN-POD CONTROLLERS HAVE T-MINUS 6:59M TO ENSURE DEPLOYMENT
…ALL CREWS STANDBY
There has been a breach in the rift and the category 6 Kaiju, named Cujo, is circling around Hawai’i. All islands have gone into underground lockdown until it is safe to come out, and all crews, no matter whether they are on call or not, must be prepared for emergency deployment. A fishing trawler has been told to evacuate immediately but hold no priority over the protection of the islands.
Cujo est. Battle Statistics
- Approximately 699ft tall, 8,000 tons
- Speed: 16
- Strength: 13
- Armour: 12
- Strengths: Cujo is exceedingly fast and moves in an unforeseen manner, almost like a land mammal, and has little hesitation in attacking hard and fast. LOCCENT has also detected that he emits a toxic gas, which is why on the Mark VIII jaeger has been chosen.
- Weaknesses: It is apparent that Cujo isn’t nearly as intelligent as his predecessors, and may just be a test run for a Kaiju far larger and more powerful.
Players have 48 hours to write about subduing Cujo, after which time we will consider the Kaiju dead. Please note only the crew Alpha Centauri (Lucien Amadi and Loren Devereux) are engaging in combat. Players may use a chatzy to write out the attack or interact on the dashboard.

Roleplay Time Skip
To get the slow healing time out of the way we’ve decided to hold a time skip in the roleplay. It will skip 6 weeks worth of in-game time, putting our timeline around November 21st. During this time the memorial for Nolan O’Malley will be held, which will be discussed as a writing prompt. You are also encouraged to reflect on the healing period and it’s effect on your characters.
Following the time skip, Raegan O’Malley has been hired by Strike group operatives, doing a variety of jobs that keep her out of the spotlight but firmly involved with the Shatterdome as she always has been. Three Jaeger and their pilots were transferred to the Shatterdome and will return to Argentina once enough crews are able to fight once again. It’s up to the players whether their characters are ready to work again.
The time skip will go into effect Thursday, October 10th, and instantly make the date the 21st of November, so make sure your posts from that day onwards reflect this (unless you are finishing old chats/paras). If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to send them through!
