B00ST!!

Post  Tansai Kay on Fri Mar 15, 2013 7:47 pm

Like the early 21st century show Cribs, and the later 2440's show "THIS IS MY HOUSE BITCHES", B00ST!! takes the viewer on a magical ride through the houses of the rich and famous, with the slight difference that unlike the other shows, the occupants do not know their house is starring in the film. Fronted by "Beauty", a woman who always keeps a mask over her face to avoid being identified, the show consists of her and her camera drones breaking into a mansion before touring it, judging it on criteria such as style, coolness and level of security. The most well regarded episodes tend to be ones set in the houses of agents who are in at the time of the break in; the most famous one caught a WF agent in the middle of a drug fueled orgy. Occasionally there will be a Robin Hood special, where Beauty actually steals from the mansion and gives it out to old city dwellers. This tends to result in a blood bath as an angry agent descends to get back their bling.

Beauty is, in fact, a depersonalised EI agent who managed to become useful enough to Bright and Sunny Media that they gave her a second chance working for them. The show is run by an "independant" company which consists of an empty office in a city in the South American Freestate. There used to be a Sir Helpsalot, but the UIG killed him in an investigation.

The Underground Laser Fashion Betting Ring!

Long ago Eurasia Incorporated found that between their mastery of medicine and exciting their audience they could easily make a killing through reviving laser tag. Live fire as a matter of course. "I mean it's not like we don't have enough medics on hand, right guys?" From there it was a simple set up to include a prior to entry contest, in which the teams designed their own laser reflective clothing. It's first and only test being the laser tag battle. In order to draw in the E.I.'s sizable fashion crowd. After the initial wave of enthusiasm died down E.I. marketers forced the game underground in order to re-invigorate their audiences participation. To further aid this goal the organisers ramped up the betting that surrounded Laser Fashion ring, increasing its allure. Additionally there is a runner up prize awarded to the most fashionable outfit design, after the laser 'tag' match, naturally.

Liquid Courage

Post  Ace Nizky on Mon Apr 01, 2013 12:12 am

Liquid Courage

Sometimes people want a little pick me up to help them through the day, or thorough tough social gatherings. In the past people would use alcohol to help but in the modern age suitably prepared Agents and Citizens alike have internal Toxin filters than will stop the strongest of Alcohols, and lowering the filter to allow a little drunkenness can open an Agent up to all sorts of problems from a well timed prisoner. To combat this some E.I. chemists created Liquid Courage.

This fine tuned mix of chemicals is designed to help! It provides that little boost that anyone with low self esteem can use to grow that little more courage to face life head on!

One bottle costs 200 credits and has enough in it for four doses. Each dose is a potency 12 toxin that makes the base Attitude of anyone drinking it becomes 4 for an hour. Unfortunately this does mean that anyone who already had good social skills and confidence suddenly finds themselves in a worse state than before. In addition for 2 hours after it wears off the original Attitude of the drinker drops by 2, making it a great tool for the would be amateur public speaker and ensuring their speech doesn’t go on too long.

Endau Sacred Park

On the islands of Malaysia is an oasis of life. Plants and animals that were long ago wiped out in the rest of the world make their home here, besides one of the cleanest rivers currently on the planet. Impressive, considering Malaysia is firmly under control of the Ai Jinn, likely the top producers of pollution on the planet.

The Park is controlled by the Order of the One True Faith. The exact details around the founding of the park are a closely guarded secret, but are thought by most corporate analysists to be linked to traditional religions of the area, and the idea of land being sacred. There are no permanent buildings here, the order instead living in temporary wooden structures. Like most order sites, anyone is free to enter, although any polluting will be harshly punished. It should also be noted that just stepping onto the land has been known to cause Gemini agents to collapse in sickness for some reason.

In reality, the Park's health is due to the presence of the "Children of The Leaves", a small group of telepaths who use a version of the power of biokinesis to heal the soil and plants. The Park is in reality more like a focus dome, maintained by the meditation of the Children. Their existence is a tightly guarded secret, since they are so few in number due to the rarity of the power, the group never exceeding more than five people in its history. There are a number of order scientists on hand, and while they have found some signs which allow potential Children to be identified, they have yet to determine a way to reliably awaken the power. If they managed this, then they hope that eventually the entire world could be healed.

A Crack of Purple.
The world's number one EMP fansite! Featuring articles on new types of capacitors, how to look after your EMP cannon, and a high score board for the top recorded EMP blasts for different weapon types, which are measured by special EMP targets with EMP immune cameras attached. The forums are a close knit society, since there aren't that many EMP specalists out there, and include a suprisingly large number of Comoros agents, who call themselves ESMPers thanks to their EMP assault trainings. Darya, under the user name "Icemelter" posts here occasionally.

Okay cool, but one thing, assuming the camera's are in a Faraday cage or something. Why does the website have a terrible name?

To me a highly specific online forum for a niche which has a terrible name is realistic. Where does it say EMP is purple?

It's used as a metaphor in the GET fluff text.

I didn't say it was unrealistic. I said it was terrible. Which it is.

The clue might be in the section it is in but that price of flavor text is discribing the GET system. FYI

Doll Maker Booth

Much like the photo booths in earlier centuries, the doll maker booth allows you to create a permanent image of yourself or a friend, this time in 3D doll form. The doll's clothes and accessories (as well as body shape, although this is quickly used as a method to increase the price) can be modified on the screen, before the booth takes a quick, basic superficial scan of you and uses it to create a doll sized version of yourself.

Unlike the earlier photo booths, the doll maker booth was never used to create anything official, so it's main use is rich Spire kids making "Best Friends Forever" dolls, which are often soon forgotten about. The dolls pop up surpsingly often in Comoros pre-schools. The dolls cost usually around 50 credits each, and take about an hour to make due to the need to modify the internal moulds and for the plastic to cool.

Emergency Services.

Post  Coraline on Sat Mar 07, 2015 9:32 am

As the governments of the world collapsed, the insurance companies of the super future finally got their hands on what they wanted most. Without government support grants the emergency services were folded into insurance firms. While Two Snakes medical got the majority of both medical insurance and ambulance services, other insurance firms picked up the slack on fire brigades, mountain rescue and all the rest.

Since unsolved arson cases mean that their is still an arsonist on the lose setting things on fire and more importantly costing the corporation money, it just made sense for these insurance firms to open investigative departments as well. As the leading insurance corps motto goes, thats a nice everything you have there, be a shame if something happened to it.

Innoncence WDN Safety Software
(Copy-pasting from Discord for reference)
The most popular and effective internet child-safety-censorship system allows the locked-out child to access content via in-app purchase; the costs are so prohibitively high that (most) children (probably) have to ask their parents for money for it, thus making it basically parentally approved, right?? but more importantly it gets them used to buying your way into accessing the illicit and/or unobtainable
It's made by... an SYG corp whose business is entirely this one piece of software. They do pretty well off it.
