Marz Summer 2016 5e Variant

Exterminator Needed
Party in the Ducts

Three Dwarves, three Elves and two Hobbits (in alphabetical order) entered the power ducts of magnetic accelerator station PT00572b of the Pavonis-Tithonium monorail following the worst transit catastrophe in the history of Marz.

Within a half hour of the derailment, more than half of the surviving travelers had been set upon and killed by a freak ant swarm of unprecedented violence. These unusual circumstances raise the death toll to nearly 300.

It is now believed that the accident was caused by the explosion of the power transformer at the magnetic accelerator station, the cause remaining unclear. A spokesperson for Tharsis Rail has denied conjectures that the system is under attack by separatist groups, while also dismissing as ridiculous the possibility that ants may have been responsible for the explosion, citing reduced support by local agencies and populations, and renewing calls for additional funding for long-term maintenance.

Universal Exposition Trip Derailed
Pavonis-Tithonium Monorail Accelerator Catastrophe

Early today just after Marznet went down due to solar flair activity, the Pavonis-Tithonium Chasma Monorail was thrown to the surface killing all passengers, according to intermittent satellite images. The cause is unknown, but theories include revolutionary extremists opposed to technological progress, calling themselves the Marzist Front, micrometeoroid showers, solar flair magnetic polarization field destabilization, ant infestations, and/or operator error.

Marznet connections remain sporadic across Marz. Check back here for the latest updates and breaking news.
