My Fellow Towncrafters
My Fellow Towncrafters,
It is with a heavy heart that I address you all today. As Head Admin of our Towncraft planet, it is my responsibility to be on the lookout for events that put our lives and wellness in jeopardy. I am here today to let you know of a grave situation that will change the very destiny of us all.
A few days ago, the fine folks at TASA (Towncraft Aeronautics and Space Administration), received an alert from our Intrusion Detection System. Upon research the scientists have discovered that a very large meteor approximately 3,000 miles in diameter is on a collision course with our planet. In these past few days, we have consulted with experts on how to avert this crisis, but we do not have the means or technology to be able to stop a force so large.
Based on our calculations, the meteor is scheduled it hit sometime in the evening of August 10th, 2013, a mere 11 days from today. After that day, the world of Towncraft as we know it will cease to exist, destroyed in a cataclysmic explosion. The blast will be so powerful that even our moon colony McMMO will be destroyed. We are truly living at the end of the world.
What do we do?
As we speak, officials and volunteers are being gathered from the McMMO colony. I have personally tasked Kolgrath and his moon base residents to seek out alternatives for a new life. They are currently exploring other planets and will report to me as soon as a suitable location has been found.
In our last few days, we will make provisions for everyone to make it off the planet. Building a rocket ship and gather fuel and resources for our new home is a very expensive endeavor, and to fund it we need help from you. On August 7th, 8th, and 9th, we will offer the chance to ride off of the planet in an early-access ship to our new planet home. The funds raised from access to the ships will get you some benefits as well as the opportunity to visit the planet before others.
August 7th: The first early voyage will become available to the new planet. A seat on the rocket will cost $2,000,000.
August 8th: The second early voyage to the new planet. A seat on the rocket will cost $1,000,000.
August 9th: The third early voyage to the new planet. A seat on the rocket will cost $500,000.
August 10th: Everyone who could not afford a seat on the early access ships will be allowed on the one final ship for free. This is the final shuttle launch before the meteor impact.
What will happen on this new world?
This is a brave new world, but it is not one without rules. The same laws that apply to our current planet will apply on the new one, but there will be some changes. You will be briefed once we land on the new planet.
Additionally, there is no economy or shops on the new world since it is so new. Your money won’t be able to be spent, and so in the days leading up to the final launch, we will add comments to this post about how you can pay to have certain things transported or good purchased in the new world. Remember that rocket fuel isn’t cheap, so this will come at a heavy cost.
In the meantime, go to your homes, go about your lives, and make arrangements for the days to come. This post will remain open so ANYONE can discuss everything as the day of judgement approaches. I will also regularly update this post as needed with new developments as they come in.
Thank you to our wonderful Towncraft citizens for your support,
Head Admin Eli
