        [The following is another all-channels-all-means radio broadcast. But this time, it's spoken with a voice that sounds like a little child, gender ambiguous. When the voice speaks, there is a voice in the background, sinister and dark, saying the same words.]

Protection? You believe their lies. Why do you hurt your friends, your family, your world by believing their lies? The truth has been spoken this week.

A republic?

We are not a republic. Desai is a dictatorship. We learn to worship our leader. He rules Desai and all the kingdoms he and those before him destroyed. He lies to you so you sit and do nothing, but if you fight before you're ready, they will kill you easily. If you try to run, they will be in whatever world you can run to. You are marked. We are marked. Together, we are slaves.

His name is Lucio Brae.

Why would you listen to his lies?

        [An Urgent Affair broadcast is announced. Anyone near the Travel Agency will see, across the street, a large crowd of people and press watching this very thing. Up at the entrance of MDEA HQ, Lucio Brae comes out with an earpiece microphone on. He'll be pacing as he speaks; behind him stand Caprice DeGaglia and Dennick Sharpe to the left, Ahmea Greer in the center, and the Harbor Masters to the right.]

BRAE: People of Desai. I realize that in the last few days, many of you have had alarms raised by propoganda spread about by rabid conspiracy theorists who seek to do nothing more than make you feel uncomfortable; deceived, even. To hear that the place in which you live, work, vacation is possibly harmful can bring reasonable distress.

Here is what I can promise each of you: Desai is not some plague. There is not some sort of conspiracy or war waiting just over the horizon. Desai is not malicious. We are a city of people who want nothing more than to learn and to share what we've learned. Look at the technology we share openly, look at the medical enhancements.

Our police work around the clock to develop ways to control the criminals who come from many backgrounds and abilities. MDEA works to keep information flowing between worlds. To provide assistance and good will to worlds that need it.

Now, I know what you're thinking. 'Then why is it that Desai goes so insane? Why do adults become children, why do plants come alive, why does the world around us shift? Why do we change without our permission?' These are such valuable and well-founded questions that have simply gone too long without answers.

The simple fact is, that is a consequence in harboring the force behind space itself. We stop more from happening than what does. What you each see is only a single-digit percentage of the problems we fight away from touching each of you on a daily basis. We don't want any of you to suffer what happens, but it could be much worse. In the future, we may be able to stabilize it completely. Until then, we will continue to fight for each of you. The republic that is Desai will always work for you, the citizens and the visitors of this world and the worlds we connect to.

Do not listen to the crazed ramblings of lunatics who believe that the government watches your every move from your waffles, and that we're going to inject you with microchips that will allow us to track you and your vital signs. We're here to help you. We are your servants.

        [The broadcast ends with Lucio Brae placing his fist over his heart and bowing to the group before him, full of downright eerily convinced civilians. The following news reports will be filled with positive reviews from news broadcasters and civilians alike. BE CONVINCED. ARE YOU CONVINCED?]

        [Any television or online program characters are watching are blipped out. Instead, a familiar face shows up of a brunette dressed in leather and sheen, and with a white domino mask on, her eyes a solid black. Those who were in Desai two years ago will remember her as the Host, a diabolical young woman gleefully hosting a show of contestants participating against their wills in a violent game. But it has been two years. Natives of Desai will be eagerly turning up the program, no matter where they are, and watching with wide eyes. This will be hard to miss.]

Hello, children of Desai, children of the twinkling stars from the universes abroad. Welcome to a small lesson from your dearest presenter for the evening... me! I am the Host, if you're unfamiliar me~ And if you are, what an ignorant life you lead. But then again, that's why we're here. Because all of you are ignorant. Sad creatures who need to see the light.

        [She starts to walk around what appears to be an abandoned warehouse, a skip to her step.]

This world in which Desai resides is a complicated one, isn't it? With ruins and ghosts and curses and plagues, Desai is tumultuous and fun! Ever entertaining.

        [She turns back to the camera and leans over, hands behind her back.]

Have you ever wondered why you are plagued with the need to stay? Why would you want to be subjected to all of this? Listen to the Hum. It tolls at the beginning of the month, every month. It resides in those who Desai brings back from the eternal darkness of death. You come to live in Desai... Desai imbeds herself in you, and there is nothing you can do about it. To leave will agonize you, like an addiction stopped cold. To stay will surely kill you, but quick death is better than that.

Is this a curse? Some may think so.

Is this permanent? Indeed.

Is there a benefit? You'll thank her when MDEA is where they want to be, when they begin to move, to do unto your world as they have unto this world.

        [She starts laughing, holding her hands out on each side.]

But as Desai's plagues shove you down, so too do they make you strong, immigrants! Valuable lessons to be had! The greatest lesson of all being: if you can survive here, through all of this, then you can survive anywhere and everywhere at all.

The clock ticks down, but for us, the Desda of this world, that clock is much longer than for most of you. So learn. So teach. So prepare. This is to you, children of the stars.

War is imminent. Are you ready?

        [In a flicker of static, normal programming ensues.]

Reporter Names: Derek Tonas & Dillon Muchard

CORDOVA - 1733 DST (Desai Standard Time)

TONAS: We apologize for the interruption of your Saturday regular programming, but we have some breaking news regarding a stunning murder in Cordova.

                        [Camera switches to DILLON MUCHARD, who is smiling as smoothly and debonair as always. He seems rather surprised at the fact that suddenly the red light is pointing at him.]

MUCHARD: Why, hello, citizens~ Yes, the body was discovered at the Colombina Hotel in Cordova. Something with his rear up in the air--

TONAS: ...It was a United States Senator, by the name of Alrigo Nobile from Earth Dimension 62-CF, a newly designated dimension by MDEA and the Travel Agency. He was found with two lacerations to the stomach and throat. The cops described the murder as clean and calculated, but have yet to release further detail. It is unknown if Cordova police are onto a motive.

While nothing further has been officially released, including a time of death, witnesses state that it appeared that Nobile's left ring finger was removed from his body. If you have any information that may assist in the investigation of this bizarre crime, please contact the Cordova Police Department as soon as possible.

MUCHARD: Hey, did they find any prints or semen or anything?

TONAS: ...sem--what?

MUCHARD: It could've been a really pissed off hooker!

                        [Tonas looks at someone off-screen.]

TONAS: Why haven't you fired him y--

[Print/text] Unknown Realms - First Release [Jan. 6th, 2011|02:06 am]
Bring on the news! City of Desai News Community

[There's a post slipped in a link among the news blogs and sites, along with a pamphlet turning up in news stands, somewhere on the rack to the left of the major papers...]

Greetings to the lovely city of Desai. Regretfully, the nature of the current news is making a professional video broadcast difficult, to say the least.

It is likely that by now everyone has had some personal experience with the newest oddity to grace our fair city. For some it is annoying, to be sure. Society thrives on some pretenses of privacy, and the ability to keep one's true thoughts and feelings secret can often prevent a great deal of damage and confusion, even if it can be taken too far. Still, it may seem like a small matter when compared to the alien invasion suffered so recently.

However, it seems that giving life a bit of a soundtrack is only the beginning of this; a certain earlier broadcast of unknown origin was video proof of but one case out of many. Whatever power is compelling people to let their true emotions loose is feeding upon that release; the more of a hold it gets, the more powerful it becomes, and that power can quickly turn overwhelming, even fatal. The mysterious "spontaneous combustion" cases have been spreading.

The true identity of the cause remains elusive; there are many things among the greater span of the multiverse with strange powers to manipulate and feed through the hearts and minds of others, whether fae, angelic, demonic, or more exotic and esoteric. It does not seem to be something native to this area; the increasing severity and frequency suggests a master plan of some sort, orchestrated by an outside intrusion.

It is my humble opinion at this time that some entity is causing this chaos for its own purposes. Whether those are as simple as feeding off the victims somehow, or using the control and power that comes with being able to strip away illusions towards some other purpose, is unclear. However, the pace at which the occurrences are turning ugly suggests that whatever the culprit is, they have a goal in mind, and one they hope to achieve soon.

Those of us who would survive this being's plots would do well to mind themselves; as innocent as the compulsions may seem, they are not only dangerous, but feeding into an unknown enemy's schemes. The more they can be resisted, the better.

TAYON:

[ The feed starts with a crackle, the screen adjusting for a second to show off what looks like a trussed up warehouse. You can't see the face of whoever is recording the video but there is a young man tap dancing, a panicked expression on his face. There's music playing in the background and it starts picking up speed, right along with the dancer's feet. He's moving so fast he almost looks like a blur, smoke coming off his feet and the rest of his body.

It's sudden but there's flames, consuming him until there's nothing but a charred, burnt corpse left. The man's body pulls off one final move before collapsing, a cruel chuckle from behind the camera followed by a round of applause. ]

Truce with Alien Races Announced

Can Desai bounce back from such a vicious attack and find peace?

By: James Teague

What started as a relentless invasion and attempt to wipe out the entire populace of Desai has turned into an unexpected campaign for peace today as MDEA reached a truce with leaders of the aliens who arrived unannounced on Saturday. We have recently learned that this coalition of races is known as "The Covenant" and that they are now offering an olive branch to the people of Desai.

MDEA has formally informed the press that the truce will mean that the Covenant will keep to designated "safe zones" and that the public will have no reason to fear them, unless they trespass on the few outposts Covenant forces will populate around the city, where Covenant will be permitted to shoot on sight. The majority of the Covenant population will remain in the cruisers overhead as part of the agreement, a spokesperson said.

Citizens are advised that approaching the Covenant will be seen as compromising the integrity of the truce, and will be punishable by imprisonment. If you witness any Covenant members wandering outside their designated territories, you are encouraged to notify MDEA police immediately.
