Not sure what to do yet? Wanting to prepare for the first real event of the war? On November 1, 2019, the first events for both sides will be available for those who have joined the war. Neutral players may 'hear' about a specific event that is to occur and volunteer, but they can only join one. That said, let's see what's coming up for the war!
Rumors have been spreading of wandering beasts, of stolen wealth, of destroyed property. Few have seen anything other than the results of one of these visits, and those who have caught a glimpse of those responsible speak of things no larger than a child loping into the shadows on more than just two legs. Some say it's a mischievous group of kapper, others believe it to be something much worse as they return to their homes to find the creatures they left out partially eaten, or no sign of them beyond puddles of blood.
Just the blood. No trails to show the direction the body was taken, no prints to hint at the numbers or the ones doing this. Owners have taken to leaving out traps, only to find the traps untouched despite their missing pets or items. Sometimes the traps are sprung, but only contain twigs and stones.
Those sworn to defend the labs have been busy with other matters, seemingly unconcerned by these problems, and so those leading the Shield have decided to send some of their members look into whoever is doing this. Someone must help, must find out what is happening before more damage is caused. They are looking for volunteers to find out who or what is responsible and put a stop to the attacks somehow, though they warn those interested that they cannot be certain of the strength of these creatures, nor if it is only creatures behind this. It may take a few weeks before they have a lead for their volunteers, and hope they use the time to prepare themselves.
Minor workshops have begun to spring up dedicated to teaching those sentient yet not recognized as people how to read, how to communicate in some way as to make their wants and needs known. Pamphlets litter the streets, some claiming to have been written by these 'people'. Speeches ring out from many corners, some 'normal' speakers, some translating for creatures rapidly waggling their appendages in ways that the accompanying person claims to understand, and one or two 'beasts' speaking as well as they could. While this was novel at first, most seem to be growing content to ignore those speaking and the papers they offer.
Some are less than content to leave it at that, and have made their displeasure known. It has been small things so far, like leaving those with boxes of pamphlets to find nothing but shredded paper when they open the boxes. Grease left on the boxes and chairs they bring to stand on, causing more than a few minor injuries as a unsuspecting individual fails to notice before stepping onto it. Balls wet with some foul smelling liquid rolled into the few crowds that stay to listen, sending them scrambling away far enough the speaker's word can no longer reach them.
Those who have found themselves trying to organize Rights are planning to start sending out more people with the speakers, if nothing else to keep an eye out for those responsible and hopefully deter them from escalating their disruptions. A good eye, a quick wit, a companion to stir the sympathies of the crowd they hope will come would be more valuable than someone intimidating, though they would accept them as well. No matter who volunteers, they would prefer them to avoid causing a fight. Since the disruptions so far have not be overtly threatening, Rights is taking a little time to find the best site for speakers during this event, and hope that anyone interested will be fully prepared when the day comes.
