[ The message kicks in, starting out at a low buzz and growing louder in time. Faintly, two men are heard in the midst of a discussion, but their voices are hushed. As the sound grows louder, it becomes more apparent who's speaking. ]

I... I'm sure about this. There's just... We've been g- given this job, and the others areā€¦ I mean...

[ Another voice. To those who went on the town exploration, it should seem familiar. Very familiar. If you can imagine the stuttering, panicked man you met speaking with a firm tone, you'll be able to hazard the man's identity. ]

You were given this job? And just who gave it to you? Face it: you're clinging to a dream you've already tried and failed to achieve. It's a pathetic venture that wastes everyone's time.

W-well, yes; n- no. They... I've go to make sure they come in and out. If I... I leave this post, then they're stuck.

Then just leave it open. You're a smart guy, aren't you?[ Under the compliment is a biting threat. An accusation. ] Surely you could... put a foot in the door to prevent it from swinging closed, so to speak. Leave it open for them a crack. If they manage to wedge it open and make a break for freedom... well that would be no one's fault.

... As if accidental? [ his tone seems to consider it. ]

Completely by accident. [ Who knew someone could sound so assuring and so smug at the same time. ]

[ There's a long, contemplative silence. The feed is fading out again, but if you listen closely, it sounds as though a machine is powering up. Click. Click. Whiiirrrrr. ]

[ OOC: And thus officially starts the second event! There will be no responses coming from the Scientists but you are free to respond/mingle with one another in the post! ]

Hah... I see it now. The truth; reality. What it is to be a human being. That was their goal; their objective. The thing that they strived the most to show us, and all this time we were too blind to understand the truth of it all. These scientists which it seemed so many of us were bent on hating. It's become so clear now just how wrong we are!

Humanity is moving forward too fast. Step into the world that you once knew and you find that everything is big cities, bright lights, and ignorance. Automobiles whirl by, people rush past, the sun moves across a natural sky, looking down at the unnatural landscape below it, tarnished and scarred by the marks we leave behind. Cities sprout up like cancerous moles and, with bulldozers, scar earth's natural skin. We TRY to create a world that is perfect in our eyes and completely miss the fact that, through our selfish benefit, we are destroying what is good.

That is Discedo. That is why we are here. Look around us and we SEE for ourselves what our sins will make of us! The buildings are representative of our home worlds: once a tall megalopolis stooping over the paved roads, we now look out our windows as the predecessors of some race and see what destruction they wrought upon themselves. Is this not what will become of every world? Humanity indulges itself, and eventually the gods will strike it down to its very foundation, leaving those of us too foolish to realize the consequences of our own actions.

Civilization is such an ironic word: what civility exists in it? It breeds only selfishness and hate, pitting us against one another until one has ruined the other. What is it called... survival.... Ah! yes! Survival of the fittest. The true nature of civilization: kill or be killed. But here...

Discedo. We are surrounded but what is truly civil: the requirement for us to work together as a body, instead of against each other like warring creatures. If we wish to survive we must come together and cooperate. That is the goals of the scientists, it only makes sense!!

Heh, I can't believe I didn't see it before. It needed only a look for me to finally understand what it was that made this place so unique!!! The scientists. They want to STOP the deterioration of not only this world, but our world. But as it stands... it is too corrupt, and what does one do with a corrupt criminal? He locks him up and, better still, kills him to protect society.


Sweet rapture, I have been freed of a blinding light that I may finally see the truth. The scientists are merely a beacon, and with their guidance we can find the path to righteousness.
