    ((Heyo! Decided to tackle hosting another game. But this time, it's a... different sort of game. Inspired by some of the threads some sites get up to, a unique form of RP... they all have a term for it - "Quest," I believe.

    So hey, might as well see how TFW works with it, shall we?))

    Your optics flicker open. Damn. Fell asleep in the corner of your quarters again.

    It didn't always be like this. Once you were a bright and up-and-coming Police Corp Cadet. You had it made. All your job called on you for was making sure the kids of the high-class neighborhoods didn't get into too much trouble. But then those guys from Kaon, Tarn, Vos, and the other dirty towns took issue with how things were run.

    War broke out afterward, and the deaths of the Senate were barely averted by several Police Corp bots, including your mentor, taking down the shooter, a Vosinian flier if you remember, at the cost of their own lives.

    You look in the mirror and see yourself. You look into the eyes of a bot who had seen towers fall. You look into the eyes of a bot who had seen the person that they held dearest be ripped apart by Sniper rounds after he tackled that treacherous senator. You look into the eyes of...

    ...the eyes of...

    ...Scrap. You forgot your name again.

    ((And now, you have to make suggestions for our sad, scarred friend. So go ahead, throw everything at the wall. See what sticks. Your quest has only just begun.))

    Brakewire! His name was Brakewire. By Primus, his memory has started to play up again.

    You hear the auditory illusions again. Damn. You'd think all those times with Rung would've gotten rid of them a long time ago, but apparently they didn't get the memo.

    Apparently, your name, according to them is either Brakewire, Gearshift, or Punchline.

    Out of all of those, Gearshift seems to have the most appeal.

    Well, if your name isn't really Gearshift, you can just say it's a stupid nickname they gave you.

    Okay, name down, what to do now?

    Alright, in your inventory, you find the following - a mobile communication unit, and a GM-x22 Proton Pistol.

    Not much that gives you a clue as to what you have to do right now.

    Suddenly, the Mobile Communication Unit starts to make a ringing sound.

    []ignore it
    []answer it
    []test capacities of pistol on self

    You decide to answer the mobile communicator unit.

    "Hello?" You ask.

    "Good to see you're still up, Detective. I have an assignment for you," The other end, a mildly whispery voice, replies, "Please report to the bridge."

    Bridge? What bri-

    Oh, right, you forgot you were on a Spaceship.

    How silly of you.

    []Go to Bridge and receive assignment
    []Check contacts
