The colonies may be split. Which side are you on?

DPIP IS ALARMED

THERE IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.
Find NEW FRIENDS AT THE LOCAL DOCKS!

The Department of Protected Inhabitants has set out an alert on all active telepads and comm networks. This is normal, they tend to send out odd little reminders and slightly suspicious messages from time to time... but somehow this feels different. There are many more drones spiraling about, scanning for who knows what. You've had at least three different operatives skulking around the outskirts of your colony.

It almost seems like they're looking for something and have no idea where it might be.

RESPECT

You're sure it's something that those antagonistic Rebels did, you just know it. You're about to make a report when your radio lights up, a broadcast sent out over the network from DPIP themselves.

REBEL

At first you think it's from the bunker entrances that you found, but instead... your radio lights up, your interceptors catching a broadcast from DPIP to their loyalists.

New life forms have been detected in the ocean. We need research vessels to go out into the deep to find out more about these creatures. We have been getting conflicting reports about their physical characteristics. Some claim they are huge, snakelike beasts who are extremely dangerous and carnivorous. Others have claimed to see sleek-furred creatures with long claws who are smaller than tsabhua but larger than belemoid. Another source claims to have seen large, bulky creatures with soft, blunt faces, and pawlike appendages. This may be dangerous. Any loss of life will be paid for in full.

 

RESPECT

Locate these creatures and report your findings to DPIP.

REBEL

Try to find the creatures and learn about them before the DPIP loyalists are able to.
