We've given it some thought and have decided that with the current state of the lore, it's in everyone's best interest if we focus on what we have currently so that we can finish the story in a timely manner. Introducing new characters into the mix would not only complicate things, but it would be difficult for new players to acclimate considering the current player base consists exclusively of long-time players.
All currently pending applications will be processed, but the application form is closed so no new applications may be submitted.
Applications will open again closer to the release of our Build 41 lore. Info on that will be released at some point in the future, but I can at least confirm that we're making good progress with our writing and planning.
Thanks for your understanding!!
On June 28th 2019, A red-eye flight departs from the JFK International airport at 11:25 PM, bound for Heathrow. A Boeing 767, #1213, carrying 243 souls aboard begins a routine flight over the Atlantic ocean, destined for the vast European connections of London's most famous terminal. The winds are first fair, but a brewing storm system soon sends shocks of turbulent weather into the flight's path. Despite the pilots' best efforts, the storms only increase in severity, and an attempt is made to turn the flight around. But high winds seize the plane during its bank, and it's blown off course and out of control. As oxygen masks drop and screams are muffled, the plane veers toward certain destruction.
Survivors awaken in the tangled remains of the wreckage, surrounded by scrap metal, discarded luggage, and the bodies of their fellow passengers. The plane has crash-landed into the sand dunes of a beach on an unknown island. With emergency radios finding no frequency, no way to tell their location, and seemingly no way of reaching the outside world, the survivors will need to gather their supplies and their wits to try and survive on their newfound island and try to find a way to reach home... But they may find that they are not the island's only occupants.
