This is the ooc for the Reasearch station at the edge of an eldritch location intcheck.
You will play the role of a scientist in the research station 1D, studying the mysterious force that drives Anol. The locations, going from outside of Anol in, are as follows.
This is the secondary staging area for research into Ano. It is run by a mix of military and private interests. Samples that don't decay outside of Anol, as well as the raw data gathered by RS1D, is analyzed here. Experiments to be conducted are written here. In the military complex are many planes of varying age and technology level, as well as jeeps, all terrain vehicles, and pack animals of various breeds. The risk of disappearances, insanity, random mutations, technology failure or misfire, and monster attacks is considered minimal.
This is the only permanently staffed research station in the string of safe houses trailing off into Anol. Constructed of concrete and steel, it has none of the safety problems of the past three bases. In case of Anol flux, automatic detectors shut the base down, locking the 6 inch thick steel vault doors. Exits will be provided via the roof and evacuation tunnel, and, if any precautions are breached, safety lockers with muriatic acid scent wash are provided on every floor. The two basement levels contain bedding suitable for 48 people. The floor level contains the garage, while the top two floors contain kitchen, dining, and recreation areas. Floodlights, motion sensors, pressure sensors, proximity sensors, and concrete walls with embedded glass and razor wire protects the perfectly manicured lawn. Anol materials are not to be taken into
Located 200 meters from the base is a fully stocked laboratory for experiments, with similar precautions
The Anol is the mysterious force that pervades the land for which it is named. Held away from the eyes of the rest of the world, the US government and select companies are attempting to mine Anol for revolutionary substances, using it's anthropic tendencies to bug fix genetically engineered organisms, or to generate a new physics. It is theorized that it has always been there, but was completely hidden by wilderness until the massive expansion in 19XX swallowed the town of Y and the neighboring experimental nuclear reactor. Examination of groundwater and river sediment isotopes indicate that the reactor is flooded, but has not gone out of control or destroyed containment. At present, a blur effect shields the affected area from satellite view, while providing a handy gauge for how fast it is spreading. Artifacts may be contaminated by anol, and biological samples have a tendency to decay outside of it's influence.
Dangers of Anol include monster attacks, insanity, breakdown of equipment, disappearances, tiredness, general breakdown of well being, and mutations. Personnel are encouraged to report all symptoms and reactions to Anol.
Time spent in Research Town: (everyone will be a new recruit to RS1D)
General description+Picture: (personality)
Name: Robert Chaus
Studying: Effect of Anol on ecosystems
Time spent in Reasearch town: 6 months
Skills: First aid, surveying, veterinary medicine, how to handle a gun.
Description+picture: Rob is a levelheaded guy with a fascination with everything that deals with Anol. He dabbles in most fields, and even though he usually can't understand them, he'll always at least skim the different departments papers. Rob fits in the chubby and muscular body type group.
Name: Kyle Sanders
Studying: Genetic Engineering for military use
Time spent in Research Town: (everyone will be a new recruit to RS1D) 1 year
Skills: Skilled in genetic engineering, doctor/first aid skills, also knows biology and human anatomy/physiology inside and out. Due to his love of the gun range, he can use a pistol pretty well.
General description+Picture: (personality) Sandy blonde hair, emerald green eyes. He has a thin, narrow shin, gauntish face, and is clean shaven. His hair is short-cropped, and he is always smiling. Unlike most scientists, he doesn't really spend a lot of time wearing his labcoat, instead he prefers to wear dark slacks and a grey T-shirt with black trim. He's thin and wiry, has muscle but not bulk.
