WVU Hospital, West Virginia 176 people inexplicably dead, 14 survivors

At 6pm Tuesday, everyone inside WVU Hospital, Rosewood vanished. For 3 entire hours, the hospital was empty of all biological material. Even biological samples and meat in the kitchen went missing.

 

As abruptly as the Event occured, it was undone:

176 cadavers in various states of mutilation have been been identified, and the number may rise as DNA tests come in.

Of the 14 survivors, 5 are in critical condition, 6 are stable. All exhibit extreme psychological distress and trauma, and have been transferred to local hospitals.

 

The board of directors of WVU have vowed to rebuild and reopen, though the ensueing FBI investigation is expected to take some time.

850NEWS.COM - Pensacola, Florida - Police station protest devolves into a massacre. 

 

The newest article on the website includes the T.V. report attached as a video file followed by a content warning below that reads 

 

The following footage may be disturbing to many, viewer descression is advised.”  

 

Alice Williams was able to get a hold of an active protestor, they wished to remain anonymous however they have agreed to give us their side of events 

 

The following is a transcript of the interview, a full length vide of the interview is due to be released tomorrow. 

 

It all started because of that fucking snake I tell you, that snake who lied corrupting the minds of men, a monster who shed his ugly disguise to reveal what was beneath - THE DEVIL, DEVIL INCARNATE I TELL YOU! AND THEN I HEARD THE VOICE OF GOD, GO FORTH HE TOLD ME, BRING ME THE SNAKE’S HEAD BEFORE IT ESCAPES!"

 

"Oh but I wasn’t the only one who heard it, I'm not crazy, no no no no, my brothers in arms also heard every word loud and clear, and it is then when we took action!"

 

"The pigs you see, they’re in league with the devil, they tried hiding the serpent of Eden, escape with it BUT DIVINE PROVIDENCE WAS ON OUR SIDE, THE LORD CAME DOWN FROM HEAVENS AND HE IMMOBILISED THE DEVIL’S CARRIAGE, it is then when the servants of the devil dropped their act and opened fire, thinking they could mow us – righteous god-fearing pure-blooded Americans down like we were cattle, but we fought back and won, we reminded the devil of the second amendment yes ma'am so we did!"

 

"And the... first deceiver, what came of it?"

 

"OH, THAT BAG OF SIN AND SCALES? I did the Lord’s work myself, with these two hands, I tore its head clean off and hung it up on one of the street lights to send Satan a message, don’t fuck with the U to the S of the motherfucking A! 

 

Attached is a photo of a mutilated torso with the lower half of a snake hanging from a street light, its head is missing, a giant gaping hole is present where the individual’s heart would be and the word SNITCH is carved into what’s left of their body in large blocky letters, the individual seems to have sustained countless stab wounds to the abdomen among the already described injuries. 

The backdrop framing the body is that of a police station aflame as the first responders perform their active duty. 

 

Our reporters were able to get their hands on unedited footage of the riot.

 

Attached below is grainy footage of the riot captured by the street cameras, it depicts a crowd of around fifty protestors throwing Molotov cocktails at the police line in front of the Pensacola police station before all as one charging towards the back parking lot seemingly unphased by tear-gas,  

 

The protestors break the police line and trample several officers underfoot  

 

Sounds semi-automatic sidearms being discharged can be heard shortly after as an armoured SWAT truck peels out of the parking lot only to be followed by the sounds of two fully automatic rifle being discharged into the crowd as the protestors collapse one after another. 

 

The firefight is short lived and the sounds of automatic fire soon die down though the protestors proceed to tear into each-other, using anything from firearms to their bare hands as in-fighting begins to take place. 

 

In the midst of the bloodshed a vaguely masculine figure can be seen fleeing the parking lot, weaving through smoke and tear gas as if trying to conceal their presence, their left hand halfway tucked under their shirt – it appears larger than the other and is severely deformed, though the exact nature of the deformity is impossible to tell due to the quality of the footage.

Month 490: Limited Research

Pa called again, he still wants be to come back to Atlanta and quit wrestling. His brother's death still impacting him to this day. I want uncle's legacy to live on with me though. Uncle was always there for me. We exhanged the same old dialogue, and he rescinded in the end. I wanted to talk to him about the Xhao incident, but decided against it. Whatever these contracts were, they were dangerous. I promised I would visit though, and I plan to. Certainly by next week.

On the topic of these contracts, it can be confirmed that they are the real deal. I felt strange after being imbued with control. I could identify and grasp my flesh through my will. My form morphed to my liking, but it was limited. I couldn't stay in an altered shape for long, lest my brain notices the difference from the body I inhabit to the one I changed into. I physically cannot mantain it. I'm trying to perform minute changes to my body right now, such as improving my immune system, but progress of this is slow if not nonexistent. It has become clear that the only way forwards is through more of these contracts.

I tried to get some information from Samuel, but they just said that it came from higher ups. I even had the foolish idea to hire a private investigator for a second there! Against the military?!? I doubt my investigation skills would gain me anything either, and have abandoned such notion for now.

I have also ramped up my training, not for the petty cash and fame the improved skill would collect for me, but self-defense against monstrosities in case of future contracts. The training paid of greatly, to my suprise. It seems as if my learning capabilities have been enhanced in a shape or form. More testing is required.

Plum tuckered out

God damn some people were tirin'. All of that work for a man who had a damn banshee come after him every time he naps, and a fucker who was dumb enough to use brain lightning in front of all them innocent bar goers.

He didn't have enough sense in his head to figure out why someone would've gone and done a thing like that, and with it having been 24 hours since he'd been able to get a proper roll from Marshall Carter and Dark he wasn't firing on all cylinders. 

But hell once he got home, and away from that accursed walmart place he was finally able to get shit sorted and started working on his latest invention. A little inspiration taken from the little touch that space critter had given him when he'd offered it some moonshine at the start. When it touched it the liquor had gone damn near topsy turvy, intense enough to knock him on his ass if he dared to drink it, and when he got it home under the still and under a little microscope thing Jerome had he figured out that the new blend was so got dang flammable that you could load it into a buckshot shell and get dragonsbreath that could slip through any airport on the planet.

Pity that meant he did the whole got dang job for nothin as the alien fella had given him what he needed before he left the shinin' still, but hey. He saved that Icarus fella and he supposed a life saved was worth all the rest of that trouble.

Back from Hong kong

I got back on a civilian plane, most of my equipment that, would make it a bad Idea got lost after that shark broke the glass and flooded the whole room. When I landed, I went on a little shopping spree, had money to spend on new equipment. I bought all of the lost equipment plus a gas mask, some walkie-talkies and a flashlight. Still 100,000 $ is more then I needed so I bought my self a motorcycle.

After I got back, I felt so dead. Everything seemed so wrong. I'm sleeping a lot, like the way it should be. I have no idea what type of curse was placed on me, but it won't let me die, disappear into nothingness. I still eat normal food; it makes me feel somewhat alive.

After a week from that job in Hong Kong I got another job. Assassination of some cheating husband. I knew I wouldn't get a kick out of this after Hong Kong, but money is king. Some people went to bed and they simple never woke, like this target. I guess Dr. Liu Xhao had died in solace, knowing that his death will be bespoke. While disposing of the body I felt irresistible urge to try human flesh. It tastes like normal meat, but the knowledge that I did a despicable act gave me a rush of the adrenalin. After that I went to therapy, turns out eating humans is bad for your psych. Well now I don't fell an urge to eat brains. I'm not even sure If I need to eat, I'm dead FFS.

I have noted that my technic with edge based weaponry has gotten sloppy, It's time to train extra hard.

Diary of My Newly Freed Time

Having searched for a way to bring back Bobby for years, I haven't had a moment to spare in all that time. Between the divorce settlement with Mary, the work at the company, and my frantic research into the occult I spent it all, I suppose, on Bobby--on trying to find a way to bring him back to me. Now that I've discovered a way, I've had some free time for the first time in three years. I could do anything I wanted, now that the only way of accomplishing my goal was on these "Contracts". I finally took some of my work colleagues on their invitations to the bar after work. I've gotten quite good at karaoke, at least enough to not be embarrassed by my singing anymore. I also spent some time at the shooting range, the first time I've done that since I last got my license renewed. It felt good to polish up my skills, really clean the rust off of them. My dreams have still felt...chilly, but that presence hasn't assaulted them again, for now. It feels like it's biding its time, waiting for the next time I'm at my most vulnerable. My son hasn't returned to me yet, not truly, but I have gained a way to bring him back in part. I can channel his spirit now, though I haven't tested it out just yet. A perfect reward from my last job, just what a devious employer like him would grant me. A taste of what I want, enough to have me continue, but not enough that my goal is accomplished. I know I'm being manipulated by my employer, and this bargain we've struck. I just don't care. I'll do anything to bring my son back home, alive and safe, no matter what it costs me. Isn't that what any good father would do?

Bastards

They took my Goddamn Bike!

Leaving it in Hell - that I can stand. I can imagine a bunch of sexy succubi Hell's Angel chicks riding it around through the afterlife, all Metal-like, meep.

The Cops though? No fucking WAY am I letting the Cops still my Indian Superchief.

HELL. NO.

So I slipped back after the job to case the impound. Cameras, fences, guard - the usual shit. If I wasn't who I am & hadn't been up to what I've been about the last few years, that'd be a problem. As it turned out, it kinda was a problem after all - kinda.

So, I pinged the cameras with ball bearings first, then hopped the fence, & rolled a car through the gates - this got our rent-a-cop's attention, which I was like: fine, put the ol' Stokes Spooktacular on him, he'll be on his way.

Nope.

Caught me so off guard I started laughing, meeping.

So, of course, I got shot.

Just a little bit shot, still itched like a son of bitch later though. A quick bitch slap of our shooter & he took a walk. Break in to the garage & found my bike...yeah, about that, meep meep meep...

THOSE SONSABITCHES SCRATCHED MY BIKE!!!

Also took it for a joyride, the little shits! Made some notes or whatever!

It was time for the Action Movie ending for these assholes.

As the cop sirens wailed, Ol' Edgar Stokes lit out of that garage with the fires of hell behind him! Great Balls of Fire, you better believe it - don't ever fuck with my Bike.

The Ether

After coming back from that riveting trip to Barcelona, this time via teleportation, the usual happens, this confirms my theory, these abilities can only be improved by going into one of these contracts and coming out alive, this one was even crazier though.

Clouds, Skies, the flow of matter through the world, It's like the co-existance of endless creation in an infinite ether, I'm not fully able to describe this right, words fail to do so.

I can feel it, i can USE it, i can do some extra crazy stuff now, I cut myself by accident a day ago, i looked at the cut to find it obscured by what looked like fluffy clouds, the pain went away quickly and was overcome with a feeling of.. solace, respite.. it was ethereal, the clouds disappeared after a few minutes and the cut was completely gone, no scar no nothing, like i never got cut in the first place, later i figured out how to control where and when these clouds appear, it was like controlling the pitch and frequency of a radio but with your soul almost, challenging but if i focused enough i could do it consistantly.

Now if you think that's crazy wait till you hear about this,  a few hours ago i killed a spider i found in my room, but then i remembered all the shit i see in contracts and realised how innocent and harmless the spider was, so i felt bad, i thought about what i did to my cut and so i tried doing the same to the spider, It had 2 legs and an exploded Abdomen before i did my thing, after the clouds faded from it it was Fully healed walking around again, Could this work on people? can i undo the worst of injuries? could i regrow Limbs to those who lost them?

The visit to Barcelona

Despite the happy title of this entry, i assure you this story is nothing but an ever descending spiral of blood, death and stuff straight out of The Exorcist.

 

I've recently started learning how to drive, this is great and honestly despite the reputation it gets, I find it extremely relaxing compared to the other stuff that happens. I usually drive with the driver seat window open, I like a breath of fresh air and the feeling of the wind in your hair, but ofcourse the enjoyment couldn't have lasted because from the darkness of the road's sides a fucking BOOK came flying through the car's window whizzing right past my face, hitting the roof of the car then bouncing down into my lap, either who ever throw that had extremely good aim or was extremely lucky. Seeing my vision blinded for a second by a square object I SLAM the brakes, thankfully this was at 1 AM and no one else was out that night.

Can you guess what book this was?.. if you guessed that godforsaken black book then you are absolutely correct, and it was such a nice night too. I take this book back home, I know full well what it is and what will happen when i open it, I park the car down the driveway, close the door behind me and run upstairs, It's that time again, I open the book and there it is, the space where i leave my signature, I grab my pen and sign.. Here we go.

 

1 week, 3 days ago: Pan wrote a Downtime Journal for Enzyme

well, that happened

finally getting home and realizing just how much bigger this world is, Pan sets out to improve and harness his expanded powers. If not for anything else, to survive, and to survive better cause death is the last thing he wants. But how do you prepare against the supernatural? it's not as easy as it sounds, but powers help as he dedicates time in concieling his weapons so he's always armed, getting foreign currency like Euros, rubles, renminbi, yen, whatever he can, he's got the money for it, and perhaps learn some spanish if he has the time, but it's not a major priority, but otherwise he just lives like normal keeping an eye on the news, riding his bike, and maintaining his equipment, he looks at his new gas mask and wonders how the others are doing and when the next contract will come, but when it does, he'll be ready. In the meantime, it's back to protene shakes and steak for his calorie count and back to the gym as usual, nothing extreme, yet. just normal exercise to stay healthy for now, but when the time comes, he's going to have to go hard to handle everything that's to come, but he doesn't have the time right now as his priority is to focus on always being armed and with the powers gifted by these 'harbingers' it should be easy to conciel a weapon as long as you keep regular maintenence on it like your supposed to with any firearm

Illuminated Earth is a twisted reflection of the modern world where the advent of smartphones and the internet confirmed the existence of the supernatural instead of disproving it. Here, witch hunts have merit. Billionaires and Senators employ paranormal advisors and bodyguards, and everyone knows. Charlatans become pop culture icons, and each revelation inspires a new cult. The world is changing. The secret societies that pull humanity's strings scramble to adapt.

Now's a good time to move up.

House Rules

Contractors from The Illumination Are portable, and may play in Contracts in other Playgroups.
The Illumination grants an Improvement to GMs who achieve the Golden Ratio.

The purpose of this Playgroup is to introduce new Players to The Contract and to provide a "proving ground" that Regional Playgroups can draw from. 

  • This Playgroup is the parent Playgroup of several Illuminated Regions.
  • Canonical World Events
    • The World Events posted in this Playgroup are Regional events that have advanced to the global scale. They are considered canonical for all Regions. 
    • No World Events based on the events of Contracts that occur in this Playgroup or Downtimes for Contractors that are homed in this Playgroup will be posted here.
  • Contractor Creation Rules
    • Contractors may take no more than 7 points of Liabilities
    • Contractors cannot be a direct ripoff of a pop-culture character to the point that NPCs in-game would notice the similarity
    • Contractors may not use a concept that is extremely likely to disrupt games (e.g. being a walking, talking fox, being as notorious as Osama bin Laden, having a bomb in their chest that detonates when they die, etc). 
  • Citizenship: Active Players are expected to GM Contracts from time to time. If you have played as a Contractor in your most recent six Illumination Contracts, you are barred from playing in The Illumination again until you GM a contract in The Illumination. (In other words the first six Contracts are free, but after that you must GM). 
  • GMing: All members of The Illumination are encouraged to GM, and no approval is required. Custom Scenarios likewise do not require pre-approval.
    • Contracts run in this Playgroup are rarely 'canon'. Much of the time, these Contracts take place in an alternate dimension that is very much like The Illumination, and the Contractors involved only notice the differences when they return home and try to follow up on the events of the Contracts.
    • For Canonical Contracts and consistent stories, join a Region Playgroup.

Full Setting Description

This Playgroup uses the official Illumination Setting.

WVU Hospital, West Virginia 176 people inexplicably dead, 14 survivors

At 6pm Tuesday, everyone inside WVU Hospital, Rosewood vanished. For 3 entire hours, the hospital was empty of all biological material. Even biological samples and meat in the kitchen went missing.

 

As abruptly as the Event occured, it was undone:

176 cadavers in various states of mutilation have been been identified, and the number may rise as DNA tests come in.

Of the 14 survivors, 5 are in critical condition, 6 are stable. All exhibit extreme psychological distress and trauma, and have been transferred to local hospitals.

 

The board of directors of WVU have vowed to rebuild and reopen, though the ensueing FBI investigation is expected to take some time.

850NEWS.COM - Pensacola, Florida - Police station protest devolves into a massacre. 

 

The newest article on the website includes the T.V. report attached as a video file followed by a content warning below that reads 

 

The following footage may be disturbing to many, viewer descression is advised.”  

 

Alice Williams was able to get a hold of an active protestor, they wished to remain anonymous however they have agreed to give us their side of events 

 

The following is a transcript of the interview, a full length vide of the interview is due to be released tomorrow. 

 

It all started because of that fucking snake I tell you, that snake who lied corrupting the minds of men, a monster who shed his ugly disguise to reveal what was beneath - THE DEVIL, DEVIL INCARNATE I TELL YOU! AND THEN I HEARD THE VOICE OF GOD, GO FORTH HE TOLD ME, BRING ME THE SNAKE’S HEAD BEFORE IT ESCAPES!"

 

"Oh but I wasn’t the only one who heard it, I'm not crazy, no no no no, my brothers in arms also heard every word loud and clear, and it is then when we took action!"

 

"The pigs you see, they’re in league with the devil, they tried hiding the serpent of Eden, escape with it BUT DIVINE PROVIDENCE WAS ON OUR SIDE, THE LORD CAME DOWN FROM HEAVENS AND HE IMMOBILISED THE DEVIL’S CARRIAGE, it is then when the servants of the devil dropped their act and opened fire, thinking they could mow us – righteous god-fearing pure-blooded Americans down like we were cattle, but we fought back and won, we reminded the devil of the second amendment yes ma'am so we did!"

 

"And the... first deceiver, what came of it?"

 

"OH, THAT BAG OF SIN AND SCALES? I did the Lord’s work myself, with these two hands, I tore its head clean off and hung it up on one of the street lights to send Satan a message, don’t fuck with the U to the S of the motherfucking A! 

 

Attached is a photo of a mutilated torso with the lower half of a snake hanging from a street light, its head is missing, a giant gaping hole is present where the individual’s heart would be and the word SNITCH is carved into what’s left of their body in large blocky letters, the individual seems to have sustained countless stab wounds to the abdomen among the already described injuries. 

The backdrop framing the body is that of a police station aflame as the first responders perform their active duty. 

 

Our reporters were able to get their hands on unedited footage of the riot.

 

Attached below is grainy footage of the riot captured by the street cameras, it depicts a crowd of around fifty protestors throwing Molotov cocktails at the police line in front of the Pensacola police station before all as one charging towards the back parking lot seemingly unphased by tear-gas,  

 

The protestors break the police line and trample several officers underfoot  

 

Sounds semi-automatic sidearms being discharged can be heard shortly after as an armoured SWAT truck peels out of the parking lot only to be followed by the sounds of two fully automatic rifle being discharged into the crowd as the protestors collapse one after another. 

 

The firefight is short lived and the sounds of automatic fire soon die down though the protestors proceed to tear into each-other, using anything from firearms to their bare hands as in-fighting begins to take place. 

 

In the midst of the bloodshed a vaguely masculine figure can be seen fleeing the parking lot, weaving through smoke and tear gas as if trying to conceal their presence, their left hand halfway tucked under their shirt – it appears larger than the other and is severely deformed, though the exact nature of the deformity is impossible to tell due to the quality of the footage. 

 

A police riot, a possible cryptid and a dead monster’s rights activist, follow us at 850NEWS and be the first to get updated on the most recent events in Pensacola Florida.

Pensacola, Florida - Police station protest devolves into a massacre.

--850-NEWS-850-NEWS-850-NEWS-850-NEWS-850-NEWS-850-NEWS-850-NEWS--

 

A young woman in a slick grey suit stands in front of the camera, at her back what was just a few hours ago the local Pensacola police station. 

 

The building is ablaze as firefighters actively combat the raging fire while medical personnel carry people away on stretchers and pack bodies away into black bags. 

 

850 NEWS, Alice Williams, live from 1301 N Palafox St, Pensacola, FL 32501 where just a few hours ago a horrible riot took place claiming the lives of protestors and police officers alike."

 

The woman gestures at the remains of the police station at her back in a smooth, practiced motion.

 

Witnesses report the local law enforcement opening fire into the crowd of protestors after several hours of escalating tensions which arose in relation to the individual known only as “Conner” - A monster rights activist who was found deceased on the scene less than twenty-four hours after giving their heart-breaking interview. 

 

 The reporter takes a second to produce a notepad and proceeds.

 

The estimated casualties are currently as follows  - Eight officers deceased, Two gravely injured, civilian casualties are currently estimated to be in the double digits.

 

The woman's voice remains cold as ice, collected, proffesional and her expression is completely unchanged dispite the disturbing numbers she lists off, she continues without misisng a beat.

 

"For more information, live updates and information too sensitive for T.V. follow the official 850NEWS website, Allice Williams, 850NEWS."

 

The 850NEWS jingle plays, the camera pivots away from the reporter and towards the burning police station as words start fading onto the screen.

Batimir Press release! Clips of batimir answering questions at the end!

Batimir is standing in front of a stand. Seems like one of the stereotypical auditoriums as he has the Brother of blood flag behind him. He looks at the camera and the “crowd” before proceeding to start his speech.

 

“ I, Count Batimir Feratu, have come today to make a public statement regarding my recent
"disappearance" from the public eye, I'd like to inform the public on what I've been up to
as well as address some recent conspiracies and allegations I've received, as well as answer
any questions or concerns. I've also come up today to make a few statements and reveals
to the public as well regarding future plans and the results of my soul searching.

As a disclaimer I'd like to let you, the public, all my wonderful fans and patrons and all
those of you, equally as wonderful as you all are, to what I've been up to this past year.
I've spent this past year soulsearching, As some of you may know I've had quite the extensive
life and career and it's been a taxing one, I've spent this last year figuring what it is 
I as Batimir Feratu wish to do in this world with my new position as the philanthropist pop
icon I have become, and I have made a decision.

I, Count Batimir Feratu, wish to use my status and wealth and assets and connections in order
to benefit the human condition, it is appalling to me as a person who has suffered from the
qualms of disease and preexisting health conditions such as hemophilia and albinism, that
in the modern day and age some of us still suffer from such conditions and are often out of
luck when it comes to treating such conditions. I've began to draft up plans for how Im going
to use my person going forward, but I've decided to open up more research facilities, sponsor
teams and projects, and in general make incredible donations to philanthropy and charity works
to help those disadvantaged people.
This brings up the next notice I'd like to address, recently if some of you have been paying
attention to the news surrounding my name you'd know about a certain blog and certain allegations
of a "White Supremacist Cult" that I lead, I'd like to state that this is incredibly offensive
and hurtful to myself as I would never put a person over another purely due to race or 
blood or background... We all bleed the same shade, our blood is all the same, but this blog
has brought up a important oversight of mine... I don't do enough in the company that I've
created and It's brought to my attention that I need to start taking initiative.

I will be apart of the hiring process more closely now, I've decided to open up scholarship
programs for those looking to get into the medical and research fields, especially those of color 
backgrounds such as Asian, Hispanic / Latino, African American, Indigneous, and other groups.
I've decided that it's important to open up such a exclusive field to more people, and I've
began to make the push for programs and scholarship paths for people to take.
Additionally I've began pushing for the opening of internships at the Brothers of Blood for
such people, to start off their budding careers.

It's very important to me that I take an active role as a Philanthropist and do all that I can
while I am still here, In my thirties it has already dawned on me that the Rockstar life
that I used to live-out voraciously in my twenties is a youthful possession that is but a 
thing of the past, in my thirties, it is time for action.
Additionally as an Address to the recent incident with the Biker Gang, I would like to state
that I was spending the day out with a dear friend of mine, inquiring to them about a 
possible internship at the Brothers of Blood, I was testing out a new program and I wanted
them to be apart of it's first stages. It was then that we were assaulted by a gang of Bikers
who made an attempt on our lives, I believe they wanted my money? Or had some type of grudge
against me for my past Rock career? Regardless I defended both myself, and my dear friend,
and fled the scene for safety. "

 

With the end of that speech, there is audio of audience clapping but no visuals before the video is cut.

The video shows a crowd of paparazzi and people trying to get batimir’s attention as he leaves the HQ of the Brothers of Blood organization located in LA. He hushes them and chooses people that start to raise their hand.


R: Is it true that you support white supremacy?

B: This is not true. As stated in the press release. We all hurt and bleed the same, in fact, I was recently assaulted by someone that believes in white supremacy.

R: On the CCTV, We saw you were fighting with some red spiked gloves, what was that about?

B: was actually a cosplay movie prop that was made by one of our prop makers. I will be releasing a photo/video of how it works. It simply functions as a pair of spiked gloves. I brought it with me to show my dear friends.

R: Who was that lady in the CCTV? Was she a GF or any romantic interest to you?

B: She is no GF nor romantic partner of mine. She is more of a platonic friend that is great at her field in medicine. She was also one of the first for internships.

R: Will you be stopping your music career or will you be focusing more on your company?

B: I decided in my mid thirties, that I am way past my prime as a rockstar and musician. Now that I am at my age, I believe I should use my wealth to help with human conditions. I will not be stopping my music career but will be more of a side project. I will be focusing on more. 

B: I will not be answering any more questions as I must leave now.

Upon the sentence being said, the crowd gets rowdy again as Batimir proceeds to enter the car and leave.

Full Interview with Boise’s Superman, Leaked

(The following is a video taken on the camera of a smartphone outside of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. The video shows Mark Colins, in an interview with a reporter.)

R: "Will you protect people from other monsters Mark?!"

M: "I just want to do good, wherever I am. If there was a monster wrecking havok, putting people in danger like that kraken was, I'll do my best to rectify the situation and bring justice." He thumbs up to the reporter's camera.

M: "I'm *not* here to replace the police or the military- Only to help when and where I can. Just one hero of many." He smiles at the camera again, leaning in and down to let a kid next to him get a selfie.

R: "Will you work with the police or military? Or will you work alone?"

M: He thinks a moment, scratching his chin. "I'm not against the idea of working with people who need my help, and I intend to help them as much as I would anyone else- but I do not intent to be fighting for the loyalties of any specific organizations or colors on a geographic map, any more than I'd be willing to be hired as a bodyguard- I'm simply hoping to help people who need help- whatever the case may be."

R: "Do you have an friends you work with?"

M: He looks at the camera seriously a moment. "Not yet, but I'm not against the idea. I won't be doing interviews or anything, but- I'll have my eye out for others who want to make a difference. As far as current associates, not really."

R: "Did Bu Fang help you in defeating the kraken?"

M: "Certainly! He kept us all well-nourished with his hasselback taro roots and provided ample emotional support. He's a good man. Impressed me with what he could do with a dug up root and handful of edible grass." He smiles.

R: "Can you confirm or deny the rumor that he has supernatural abilities?"

M: "He's fast-handed for sure, and cooks like a machine- but what is 'supernatural' really? My doc says I'm a man with a disease. He's a Van Gogh  of cooking, for sure."

R: "What disease did your doctor say you had." The reporters voice sounds worried for Mark.

M: "A new form of gigantism, basically. At the very least, I intend to make the best of a bad situation."

*The crowd audibly swoons over the dramatic reveal, along with the cameraperson with the phone.*

R: "Are you going to be okay Mark? Do you know if it has any complications?"

M: "Not yet. I just take things day by day, like everyone else."

R: "Do you have anything you want to say to the other people out there who struggle with disease?"

M: "Follow your own path, and be mindful of your own capabilities and limits. Just because your sick, is no reason to let yourself be written off. No good deed is less or greater than any other, as long as you do your best. we can *all* make a difference in our own way. Everyone's got villians they have to face, even if they're not as cool or flashy as mine."

*The interview finishes and the reporter's camera shuts off, but the leaked video goes on to show Mark pulling the reporter to the side, and exchanging contact information as Colins mutters about a "bat signal" before it cuts off.*

Breaking News! Strange Secret Basement found in old lady's home in Phoenix, Arizona!

In the city of Phoenix, Arizona, an old lady that goes by the name of Jasmine Miller was discovered harboring a secret basement beneath her wine cellar. She is the former Co-Creator of JJ & Co., a local wine company that was purchased thirteen years ago by an unknown buyer. Various strange materials and ingredients were found in this basement, including many eyes, scales, preserved hands, and other unidentifiable substances and objects. The room itself was also protected by an unidentified incapacitating agent that would activate via tripwire. An investigation of the house itself reveals that she has already fled, not having appeared at her house in the past two days. Her current location is unknown and she is expected to be very dangerous. Citizens are advised to operate under the assumption that Miller is a threat to safety. There is also someone who went missing whom we believe to be related to this incident. If you find any information on a man of Cambodian descent with straight black hair, glasses, a green coat, black outfit, dress shoes, and height of 5'9, please report this information immediately to the police.

850 NEWS LIVE from the city of Pensacola, Forida.

--850-NEWS-850-NEWS-850-NEWS-850-NEWS-850-NEWS-850-NEWS-850-NEWS--

 

A young woman in a slick grey suit stands in front of the camera, her expression is a mix of concern and pity, she appears to be standing in a weather broadcast room though at her back is a gruesome sight – a seemingly disabled man in a wheelchair, his legs covered by a thick wool blanked which is stained in a dark red substance, an enormous gash open in his chest – four deep, fresh and still bleeding gashes spanning from the man’s collarbone to his lower ribcage, the wound is not unlike something one would sustain from surviving a bear mauling. 

By his side an athletic twenty something kid in a dark red bomber jacket. 

The woman speaks, her voice soft, calm, collected 
 

"850 NEWS, Alice Williams - In studio with us today are two witnesses alleged abuse, violation of human rights and illegal cartel dealings, talking about their harrowing experiences - they are wounded bleeding but unbroken, here to share with us for the first time on 850 NEWS 

 

The woman backs away from the camera, approaching the man in the wheelchair and extends the microphone towards him without another word 

Despite the man being severely injured and obviously exhausted he speaks firmly, with all the conviction of an experienced orator, each word appearing heartfelt and genuine.

The speech is about Caucasian male in their sixties with white hair and a beard who allegedly goes by “Jules” and the people under their command, some reportedly willing and others forced into servitude under duress. 

Jules” is said to have dragged the speaker and countless others into this reality from a parallel one against their will, the speaker is said to have been kept in a “cage” like a wild animal to guard a “hoard of treasure” for two months before making his daring escape from the mansion at Devil’s Point – a location where “Jules” commits art fraud and coerces other "monsters" into working with them all with the backing of multiple criminal organization all of which they are allegedly double crossing. 

Jules” is said to be a supernatural being able to alter their appearance at will, choosing at one point to appear as a woman for an extended period of time. 

The reporter shifts her attention to the younger man present in the studio 


 
Would you like to share your side of the story or perhaps affirm any of the points that have been made thus far? 


 
The young man steps up to the microphone, rolling his shoulders before speaking – his voice deep, his conduct slightly nervous be it out of fear, excitement or something else entirely is impossible to say. 
 


Yeah uh, this guy tried assaulting me and some of my friends, he had his gang of two goons together with him, they put their hands on us and we had to defend ourselves, it was scary man, I have a picture as proof. 

 

The young man is ushered towards the camera where he produces a picture matching the description of “Jules” from earlier with a young, short woman standing by his side, seemingly exchanging words. 

The interviewer shifts her attention back to the man in the wheelchair who proceeds to give the descriptions of two more individuals, the first one matches the woman from the picture 

She is said to be an android who goes by Mary Alice and is said to possess supernatural healing abilities, able to cure the most severe of wounds and ailments with a mere touch, though Jules is allegedly keeping her “all to himself” 

The speaker also describes a middle-aged Asian male who goes by “Bu Fang” and is alleged to be able to create exquisite magically imbued dishes. 

The man finishes his thought, takes a beat to breathe in then continues in a solemn tone 

 

 
As a warning to anyone else who might not be what they appear, Jules changes people, breaks them and makes them into monsters, he enslaves us, treats us like animals - he did this to me"  

 

 

The speaker breaths out once again, yanking his wool blanket away to reveal a snake tail starting at his hips and snaking all the way up wrapping around his own torso. 

The tail uncoils and gently lowers itself onto the ground, it’s tip swaying passivley like that of a rattlesnake.
The young man recoils back shuffling out of the view of the camera, followed by a surprised shout" 
 


WOAH WHAT THE FUCK DUDE” 

 

The reporter looks momentarily stunned, almost at a loss for words when the thing in the wheelchair continues. 
 

 

 "I would like to end my statement with this - Monsters lives matter just like any other type of human - we're still human on the inside, i just hope that this world can understand that a monster is only a monster if they act like one, and some of us just wanna be safe so uh you know, monsters lives matter, right Kyle?"  
 


The speaker looks away from the camera for the first time, looking somewhere behind it.
From behind the camera, slightly off to the right a voice resounds, apprehensive, and muffled . 
 


"Uh yeah sure dude" 
 


 The speaker smiles warmly.

 

"Thanks Kyle"

THE REPTILOIDS ARE HERE!

The site presents a dark red heading on a solid black background, a single audio file is attached followed shortly below by a video file.

 

 

FOR YEARS NOW I HAVE PREACHED! I'D SCREAM MYSELF HOARSE FOR YOUR SAKE, ALL OF YOUR SAKE BROTHERS AND SISTERS, BECAUSE I LOVE YOU!

 

The voice is that of an older man, hoarse and gravely, clearly unhinged though he speaks with the fiery reverence of a pastor preaching to their flock.

 

"They walk among us brothers and sisters, disguised as normal everyday people! Firefighters, police officers, private eyes..."

 

The man lingers on the last part, practically hissing it out not unlike a reptile himself.

 

"...anyone one of the people you know and cherish might just be a cold blooded freak, harboring countless scales under their fleshy exterior, and they dream of getting you the second you give them a chance, the second you blink or drop your guard, stay vigilant humanity, stay ready!"

But nobody believed me, NOBODY LISTENED, "Oh poor ol' Pete, he's harmless just not all there, don't mind him" THEY WOULD REPEAT AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF... MANTRA, THEY WOULD REPEAT IT WITH RELIGIOUS DOGMATISM OVER AND OVER EVERY TIME THEY PASSED BY ME TRYING TO SPREAD TRUTH TO YOU SHEEP!

WELL I KNOW WHY NOW, I WAS ALWAYS RIGHT, THOSE SLIMY LIZARD BRAIN MOTHERFUCKERS THOUGHT THEY COULD BREAK ME, MAKE ME DOUBT MYSELF, WHITTLE ME DOWN WITH THEIR UNENDING MOCKERY, BUT LOOK WHO'S LAUGHING NOW!

 

...not all there... not all there... not all there...

 

The man mutters under his breath, repeating it over and over again sounding almost hurt.

 

BUT GUESS WHO'S NOT ALL THERE NOW YOU SCALY FUCKS?! I HAVE PROOF RIGHT HERE RIGHT HERE RIGHT HERE RIGHT HERE I HAVE IT MY HANDS AND I WILL EXPOSE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU, THE WORLD WILL KNOW, ANYONE WHO'S WILLING TO OPEN THEIR EYES AND JUST LOOK WILL SEE THE TRUTH AS I DELIVER IT TO THEM!

 

His tone suddenly turns warm and remorseful.

 

But for those who don't... oh you poor sods i'm sorry i'm sorry i'm sorry sorry... it might just be too late to save you... the brain wave redactors have gotten to you, melted your gray matter while you slept yes they did... you didn't heed old Pete when he told you that tin foil blocks their primitive tech, but you laughed at him and pointed fingers, mocked him yes you did... But I forgive you for I love you, may god have mercy on your souls.

 

 

The low quality video below depicts a chaotic scene unraveling in what looks to be a bar of some kind, the cameraman's hands are shaking violently as he gibbers something incomprehensive from behind the camera in an equally terrified and excited tone, this appears to be the same man from the audio file above.

The video appears to be shot from the corner of the room, encompassing the entirety of the scene with ease due to the cameraman's placement

An altercation appears to be taking place by the entrance, a mousy and lanky man wearing a black jacket is backpedaling towards the exit, very apparently ready to draw his sidearm whilst locked in what appears to be a verbal confrontation with a one armed man in a trench coat, all the while the bartender shoulders a double barrel shotgun, confusedly looking between the two.

As the three exchange words the situation seems to be slowly deescalating though the exact nature of what's being said is largely unintelligible due to a horrendous racket - the sounds of someone obnoxiously revving a vehicle of some kind just outside while "Proud to be an American" plays, loud enough to vibrate the windows of the bar, accompanied by less than pleasant off pitch yelling of the lyrics.

As the man in the black jacket nears the exit another aggressor enters the scene, a large tattooed dark skinned man easily recognizable as Icarus Lockheart, a famous actor.

Icarus places the retreating man in a choke hold without any visible physical provocation from the side of the latter, followed by a subdued gunshot and a muzzle flash right by the man's ear.

The man in the black jacket proceeds to slip out of Icaruse's grip and drawing his sidearm at lightning speed places it up against his assailant's gut and lets off four muffled shots, followed by a spray of blood across the room.

Chaos and pandemonium erutps shortly after, people start screaming and flipping over tables, some drawing sidearms of their own.

Before the man in the black jacket can do anything else the one armed man wearing a trench coat dashes past him towards the exit, though as he pushes past his eyes flash briefly and an arch of lightning shoots out of his forehead, frying the man in the black coat, locking his muscles and sending him clattering to the ground as he convulses.

Another man wearing a Kevlar vest enters the scene yelling about needing to help the poor sod on the ground and drags the paralyzed man away.

The cameraman continues filming, and just before the group makes their exit the trench coat man shoots the camera one hard gaze before disappearing outside.

Mark Collins Seriously Injured Rescuing Island from Kraken!

Mark Collins, recently-confirmed superhuman who has been missing for the past 5 months, has been found on an isolated, previously-undiscovered island off the pacific coast. He, along with 163 islanders and chinese chef Bu Fang, have been rescued from the island.

The islanders credit Mark Collins and Bu Fang with rescuing them from a monstrous "kraken" that had been holding the island hostage for some time. During the fight, Mark Collins allegedly wielded a giant metal fishook that he had created from an ancient shipwreck. Also, according to eyewitnesses, Bu Fang demonstrated superhuman abilities, although he denies these claims. 

"The islanders must be confused," says Bu. "I just threw a flare into the water. Mark did everything. I just watched." 

Due to the lack of video cameras, none of these claims can be truly confirmed. However, eyewitness accounts all agree that Mark demonstrated superhuman strength in destroying the monster. Pieces of a large, unidentified squid-like creature were recorvered near the island. 

Boise's Superman Mark Collins is recovering in a hospital in Dallas, Texas. Meanwhile, media around the world has picked up this story, and a hoard of people are gathering outside the hospital for a chance to meet a real-life superhero. 

 

After becoming a media sensation for rescuing a bachlorette party from certain death by dragging their limo away from a ledge, Mark Collins completely disappeared. About half of media-aware humans have now heard of Mark Collins and many know his face.

Mark Collins: Boise's Very own Superman?

At least seven seperate videos of Boise Idaho construction worker Mark Collins have been going viral on social media. These videos-- which were posted to CryptoLeak-- show Mark Collins rescuing a bachlorette party from certain death by dragging their limousine away from a cliff. 

Given the number of eye witnesses, various camera angles, and paper trail evidence, Scientists, debunkers, and the general public generally agree that this is a confirmed Illumination: Mark Collins possesses superhuman strength. 

Immediately after the event, Mark Collins disappeared and has not been seen since. He has stopped showing up for work and paying rent, and there have been no credible, confirmed sightings of him since (though many unconfirmed sightings have been made). And of course a government investigation, as well as many private investigations, have been launched to locate Mark, as well as to explain his incredible powers. 

T-shirts and merchandise for "Boise's Superman," Mark Collins have been selling like hotcakes, and Boise Mayor Linda Mackentire has proposed erecting a statue in his honor. "Mark Collins will always have a home in Boise," she recently said in a statement.

Archbishop Vasquez of San Francisco nominates Sister Mary Catherine to Sainthood

Flying in the face of tradition, Archibishop Vasquez has defied the typical five-year posthumous waiting period and nominated recently-deceased Sister Mary Catherine for sainthood. 

 

Sister Mary Catherine was recently found dead inside an abandoned pet store, her body partially consumed by what officials suspect were rabid animals. 

 

Archbishop Vasquez has posted several videos of Sister Mary Cathering performing healing miracles to CryptoLeak. In the videos, she can be seen experiencing stigmata and performing a laying of hands that is credited with curing chronic illnesses such as cancer. These cases were documented, and doctors have confirmed that their patients seem to have been cured, although no scientists witnessed these miracles. 

 

A massive populist following has formed for Sister Mary Catherine, especially in the Catholic communities worldwide. Her canonicalization seems very likely.

Breaking News at the Tuscaloosa County Courthouse


    James Barton, 36, has been arrested, charged with multiple counts of murder, mutilation of a corpse, burglary, and trespassing, after a citizen's arrest and his trial is underway. His family has detained Alan Dershowitz as counsel. Dershowitz is known for taking on high-profile and often unpopular cases and clients, and has won 19 of the 21 murder and attempted murder cases he has taken on as a criminal appellate lawyer.


    Police believe Barton picked victims at random, waiting till an opportune moment to approach and murder the victims scattered around the state. Victims have been identified as Micheal Stepinac (33, Woodstock) Hailey Jeffries (22, Tuscaloosa), Derek Smythe (48, Hitop) , Aaron Abbot (29, Birmingham), Elizabeth Evans (19, Anniston), Grace Marie Elois (27, Huntsville), Marie Sheilhamer, (16, Mobile) and Edward Pyle (71, Northport)


    The defense seems two-fold, focusing on James Barton's rapidly deteriorating  mental state from a head injury during a violent mugging 3 years ago, and sowing doubt on credibility of evidence submitted by casting doubt on the citizens performing said arrest- enhanced greatly when Barton's foreman and other witnesses of the arrestat JD Lumber  testified the arresting citizens used multiple Unnatural Abilities during the apprehension.
We go now to our reporter at the courthouse, where the police and counsel are about to hold a press release.

 


(Camera shows a crowd of people at the courthouse- a small podium surrounded with mics, and a crowd of reporters. Further back, police hold back the public- some of which hold signs that say "FREE JAMES" and "CLEANSE ALABAMA OF WITCHCRAFT" and "UNNATURAL OPPRESSES THE NATURAL", and there is also a counter protest, an unidentified organization in camo and masks, seemingly in favor of the citizens arrest.)

 

A suited representative of the ABI steps up to the mic,"Let me take this moment to thank our officers, citizens, and Dr Keller at the medical examiners office for their faith and determination in helping solve this case. This isn't likely to be a quick trial, though we are faithful justice will be delivered swiftly. Due to the excessive brutality of this case, the DA's office is seeking 9 consecutive life sentences. Thanks to the quick work of our staffed psychologist, Barton has calmed down a bit and seems cooperative thanks to medication- we were able to remove his muzzle in order to let him testify in his own behalf."


A reporter yells out "What do you know about that name 'Azaghel' he was screaming about the first day?" 


"We have no reason to believe 'Azaghel' is a genuine threat at this time. Morton was likely just a very sick man, but justice must be served. Any other questions?"


    Over the yelling reporters, 4 gunshots ring out from the direction of the courthouse.and the crowd immediately reacts, most running away but a few running towards it with cameras. The camera view slumps to the ground as the cameraman flees, and the live feed is cut, now showing the studio again, the news announcer's shocked faces."We seem to be having an actively developing situation." the woman says, a visible look of shock on her face.


She holds her earpiece in her ear, clearly listening before saying, stunned-"James Barton has been shot in the courthouse in cold blood. The killer was cooperative, immediately dropping his weapon. It seems he grabbed the bailiff's gun, and fired off four shots, all four hitting Barton- 3 in the torso and one in the head. I repeat, James Barton is dead." She grows silent, listening, before adding: "The shooter self-identified as Hank Jeffries on the scene. Witnesses claim he proudly announced 'This is for Hailey, you sick f'(a beeping censor cuts off the end of the word) as he pulled the trigger four times,followed by immediately dropping his weapon and putting his hands behind his head."She looks at her cards, before smiling cheerfully. "Thats all the time we have for today, Tune in at 9 for more updates on this developing story."

Manhunt Continues for Conner Inkz; Artist Suspected In Brutal Killings, Kidnappings, and Arson

A nationwide manhunt is underway for the famous tattoo artist Conner Inkz, according to the FBI, as well as for Lily Foreman, his girlfriend and known accomplice.

Mr. Inkz is the primary suspect in a series of brutal killings which occured in Burley, Idaho just last week, as well as in the kidnapping of two girls who lived there.  According to the Burley Police Department, Mr. Inkz is responsible for inciting a riot during which he killed several people including three police officers, and set the county courthouse ablaze.  He later killed a police officer and two prison guards while escaping custody.

"His guilt is clear," said police spokesperson Dana Moorehouse during a press conference shortly after the killings. "There are multiple witnesses to the riot and footage of the prison break.  We are confident in a conviction if we are able to ascertain his location."

Police refused to release the video evidence, but anonymous hackers had posted it publicly on YouTube, and though it was eventually taken down, by then it had been copied and widely circulated.  The footage shows Mr. Inkz and Ms. Foreman being escorted into a cell block before turning the tables on the guard and officer, brutally beating them to death.

"It is unclear what involvement Ms. Foreman had in the riot incidents, but she is plainly responsible for the death of the prison guard, and is known to be romantically involved with Mr. Inkz as well." said Morehouse. "They are both known to be incredibly dangerous individuals, and should not be approached by civilians."

The FBI got involved on Friday, placing Inkz and Foreman on their well-known list of Ten Most Wanted Fugitives, and setting up a special hotline for tips.  They have promised a $50,000 reward for any information which leads to the arrest of Mr. Inkz.

According to FBI spokesperson Linsday Gold, "If you see something, say something.  Mr. Inkz and Ms. Foreman are highly dangerous and on the run, and it is imperative that we are able to catch up to them.  Do not hesitate to contact local law enforcement as well as reach out to our tip line as soon as possible if you have any indication of their whereabouts."

Local police have also circulated descriptions of the two missing women, Abby Hobbes and Dorothy Childs. "We believe that the two women are victims of kidnapping and are likely to be in the custody of Mr. Inkz at this time."  Moorehouse said that they were last seen being carried away from the riot by Inkz, and have not been seen or heard from since.

Emperor Norton II Delivers Glowing Boba Endorsement

"Emperor" Norton II drew a crowd outside of  San Francisco boba tea shop Bobasaurus tonight. His speech is partially recorded and has been widely shared.

 

A cell phone video of a man in flamboyant imperial attire addresses a crowd outside of Bobasaurus:

"So do we declare that in perpetuity that this Boba Cafe is, as of today, the true & recognized Imperial Boba Cafe of the City of San Francisco. To the seventh generation, so to that this Boba Cafe will pass to it's relatives until that glorious day, serving all the citizens of the City & the Imperial States of the Union..."

OOC Announcement

Hello residents of Illumination, this is just an OOC announcement to adress a few points concerning the illumination that I dont think have been getting across through the fault of the people managing the cell.
      First of all although supernatural happenings occur in the illumination the general public still is adjusting to it, witches are not just hanging out in bars and werewolves aren't driving cabs about in London. Therefore it is reasonable to assume most first time contractors may be taken aback by supernatural, and most NPC's likely should be as well.
      Second thing I would like to go over is some of the major influentail effects the Nagasaki event had over the world just to get things clear. Main point being the massive movement of xenophobic and anti-supernatural behavior the world is engaging in. The majority of the human population have negative attitude towards supernatural and generally will stay away and potentially show violence towards obviously supernatural contrators and the likes. One of the collosal results of this which should always be roleplayed in when it comes up is the outlawing of supernatural beings and objects within the country of Japan, the people of Japan didnt respond to kindly to the cultish massacre and the use of "magic" was outlawed
      Thanks for the understanding and Apologies things got a little confusing, I hope this clears up some of the main problems and idea that needed to be communicated.

Nagasaki Massacare!

Yesterday At around midnight the City of Nagasaki was awoken to quite the scare. An enormous number of people, estimated at around 30k-40k began massacring the city, using lethel force such as firearms where they could be found, but also improvised weapons senselessly killing residents of the city. People would also be ceromoniously burned while the killers chanted about a being known as Adora. Experts have deemed the killers as a fanatical religeous group or "Cult" and the event a mass sacrifice to their assumed diety Adora. The massacre claimed around 350k lives. U.S. Forces in military bases around Nagasaki mobilized as the event began but simply couldnt respond to the efficiency and brutality of the group who dispersed very quickly before the military could effectivly respond. Many Xenophobic and anti-occult Rallys and protests around the world in response to the event putting pressure on governments around the world to clamp down on supernatural activity related to the illumination. 

(On an OOC note please diregard the last posted Nagasaki event)

Gang Members get in Shootout with Firefighters

The White Scarf's hideout, an apartment building in the middle of San Jose, was set on fire by a currently unfound arsonist, right next to an investigation for a hit and run. When Firefighters arrived at the scene, the gang opened fire on the firefighters and the cops. All of the gang members burned in the building, 5 police officers and 3 fire fighters died as a result of the shootout.

This lead police to connect the Hit and Run and Arson with the alarm at Platinum Bank next door, where it was revealed to the public that former CEO Rupert Carlson had a secret room with an exit leading to the sewers, and lead straight into the vault. The secret room had some form of item, but whatever it was, it was stolen in the chaos. Two cops witnessed a man running from the scene, but they said that the man tripped then exploded. Examination of the body shows that the man had attached C4 to his chest, and immediately exploded when he inadvertently turned it on. Nobody knows the man's motivations, or what he stole, but we will never find out.

Suspected Plane Hijacker Killed in Court

This is a CNN special report. 

Earlier today, suspected plane hijacker Amaryllis (Amy) Fleischer attempted to escape during a court hearing. She was shot and pronounced dead on scene. Be warned: the following video contains graphic content. 

The video shows Amy in some sort of courtroom, dressed in orange, eyeliner streaked from crying. The Judge bangs her gravel, and a pair of corrections officers come to take her away. Just as they grab a hold of her, a spike of blood shoots from Amy's wrist through an officer's chest. First one, then the other. Someone screams. Amy sends a third spike through the handcuffs securing her hands and feet, then makes a break for it. She makes it halfway to the door before a rattling of gunfire rings out and she collapses. Several officers surround her prone body, pointing guns. A pool of blood forms underneath her, quickly growing and flowing down the aisle.

A harrowing closure to the terrifying ordeal of the passengers aboard hijacked flight UA1670.

Plane Hijacked

Earlier today, flight UA1670 was hijacked by a black-haired witch. Viral footage shows suspect Amaryllis Fleischer using some sort of blood magic weapon to injure an Air Marshal and assault a good Samaritan monster hunter. The monster hunter died at the scene and was the only fatality of the incident. All other passengers are now recovered and free.

 

Eyewitness reports indicate that that she was attempting to protect a monstrous dog. No such dog appears in the footage. However, many individuals are seen interacting with and reacting to the “dog,” leading experts to believe that it was either an illusion or simply does not appear in recorded footage as a result of its supernatural origin. 

 

The suspected hijackers: Amy Fleischer and a man known only as “Walter” were arrested when the plane landed and are currently being held in a Honolulu prison.

 

Double Trouble: Passengers of Hijacked Plane Duplicates?

Reports are emerging that all passengers of the hijacked plane are already people that exist. The "original" passengers are all safe at their homes and had all considered going to Hawaii but made other plans for one reason or another. None of the duplicates are being held or charged with any crime. 

 

"It's really weird to meet yourself," says Sally Emerson, a passnger. "We're trying to figure out where to go from here." 

 

No one is sure why or how this has happened, but considering the recent crashed plane, it appears something very strange is going on with flight UA1670. United Airlines has stated that they are cancelling the route out of an excess of caution.

The Loch Ness Monster Captured!

Breaking News: Loch Ness Monster Captured and Contained


On August 15 a Pliosaur or better known the Loch Ness monster was captured by a local Group of Scottish scientists after using sonar technology to track down and then contain it in a smaller more manageable enclosure. The Creature Clocked in at around 20 meters and 103,700 pounds, extremely large compared to its prehistoric ancestors.

At the current moment it is unknown how the Dinosaur survived to the current day or if there are more. Confirmation on Disappearances of people due to the Dinosaur have been found after an endoscopy on its digestive tract, discovering human remains, as well as much local aquatic life found in Loch Ness although few and erratic still occuring at least annually, mainly during the winter when food is assumedly lacking

The Head researcher, Travis Thomson, recently sold the Dinosaur to the Georgia aquarium in the US ,where they plan on creating an exhibit for it, to continue the funding of research of this prehistoric creature, and where it came from hoping to uncover the mysteries from the depths.

BREAKING: Doubts raised over the fate of those in the Hawaii crash

This is a KITV breaking report.  PLEASE DISREGARD EARLIER REPORTS OF DOWNED AIRPLANE. 

 

Earlier today, a KITV report aired announcing the crash of United airlines flight UA1670. However, KITV never issued this report, and the author named in the byline has confirmed that they did not write it. 

 

That said, our on-the-scene reporters have confirmed the appearance of a crashed plane consistent on the northern coast of Oahu that appears consistent with the original report. The carnage of the wreckage indicates that several hundred passengers did indeed perish in the crash. However, many of those named in the original report have reached out to KITV to confirm that they are not, in fact, dead. United Airlines has issued a statement asserting that all of their flights are present and accounted for. 

 

The orgin of the erroneous news report, the airplane, and the unfortunate passengers aboard remains a mystery.

 

Before the United States government secured the scene of the crash, a first responder claims he was able to personally identify at least one of the bodies in the wreckage. "It was my sister, Emily! She's family, dammit. I'd recognize her face anywhere. It was her. But Emily is still alive. As soon as she saw the report, she called me, and we're together now. I don't know what happened. . . I'm still in shock. None of this feels real to me." 

 

The US Government is reaching out to those reported killed and scheduling interviews for more information. If you or a loved one was named in the original report, please call the number on your screen.
