Rogue OM Squad 13.5: Rogues in Plain Sight [INTENT FOR VIRIDIS]

Being an Intent to Paint Viridis Island in Blood and Limes
 
The young officer watched the inmates of the cell opposite him warily. He'd heard the rumours about the Rogue OM Squad, and even the thick metal bars surrounding them didn't quell his superstitious fear. They couldn't be contained for long, he knew that. More than once the Squad had been defeated - thought eradicated, gone for good - and always it had returned. No one knew how, and no one really knew why, either. After all this time, the Rogue OM Squad was a fact of life. For the present, an impotent and imprisoned fact of life, but history suggested that state of affairs was unlikely to persist for long.

"How do you do it?" he asked, suddenly, surprising both himself and the rogues with the sound of his voice. Flushing slightly, he clarified, "I mean, how do you always come back?"

"Wouldn't you like to know?" The dry, slightly mocking voice drifted out between the bars, followed by a sharp, blood-chilling laugh.

In the silence that followed, a door opened and closed somewhere nearby. The officer visibly jumped and turned swiftly to face the intrusion, but relaxed on seeing a blonde girl in a green coat and a senior officer?s hat. Clearly he trusted her, for he disregarded her presence entirely in favour of turning away to peer anxiously at the prisoners. His trust was ill-placed. The blow came swiftly and certainly to the back of his skull, a flash of lime green on impact bearing witness to the erasing of his life. Perhaps he felt betrayed for all of two seconds, but in all likelihood he never knew what hit him.

The corrupt SO knelt down next to his body and pulled the cell keys from his belt, then threw them underarm between the bars. A black hand plucked them out of the air in an practiced movement. The rogue moved to open the cell door, and in a matter of moments, the infamous squad was free once more.

Hanging back a little after his fellows had made their escape from the room, the owner of the voice and the hand stopped in front of the traitorous blonde. She gave him the banstick and a faint smile; he nodded in return and pocketed his weapon.

"The element of surprise," Morbuzaan said, quietly, looking down at the former officer. "That's how we do it."


For too long, the Rogue OM Squad has been confined to the forums. But no longer - for a deadly cocktail of old and new rogue blood has been lovingly stirred together and served to shake up your distressingly lime-free ocean.

Feel free to stand against us, if you feel that you can. Without the innocent lambs to slaughter, there would be no game. But know this - killing is our trade, and the odds are always in our favour.

We hit Viridis on November 6th at 10AM Pirate Time. Consider this a ban notice... and start writing your death scenes.

I can't find any "Rogue OM Squad" flag.
You won't; the flag is called Alternate Win Condition. Its members are (mostly) from the Rogue OM Squad, and we're considering this to be the first "ROMS Blockade".

Aren't you guys just a bunch of forum lurkers?
Well, yes, ROMS is a forum game. Some people who post on the forums do also play the game, though - or can be persuaded to play in the name of a worthy cause.

What on earth are you doing this for?
Fun! Oh, and the progression of our world domination agenda by acquiring a genuine Isle o' Limes for our nefarious purposes. Expect to see events.

Isle o' Limes?
ROMS terminology. The Isle of the Dead, filled with the souls of the banned. (And lynched.)

Wait, events?
Yep. We're a cheerful lot of evildoers here; once we've got our hands on your islands, we fully intend to use them for a variety of lime and mafia-themed events. Live ROMS, fruit relays, event blockades... we've got a list.

Whose agenda are you really pushing?
No one's. Our own. Honest. We really did just sit down one day and think this would be fun. It started as a joke and now it's a for real drop. Most of us are primarily from other oceans anyway, and any Viridianites in the Squad are operating outside the political affiliations of their main characters.

So you guys don't have it in for Antheas?
Nope. If anything, we?re just showing our respect with this early ban.

You mean that you just picked Viridis randomly?
Well, the Viridis Navy gives out lime clothes. How could we resist? Also, it may be small but it has a cool shape, which makes up for a lot. Apparently.

If this is all just a bit of fun to you guys, where's that going to leave the island if you win it?
We take our fun seriously, and we have plans for the island. No point in doing things halfway, after all.

TL;DR.
Who: Alternate Win Condition
Where: Viridis
When: Sunday 6th November at 10AM Pirate Time
How Much: 500/seg

I'm sorry, but this kind of vague casting of suspicion doesn't help anyone.

What do you mean?
It's an in-joke.

Is that likely to garner much support?
Listen, nobody asked you. Leave me alone.

This is coming off like a Prosperity Move.
Sith Mind Trick.

What the hell? This another in-joke?
Yes, it's an in-joke within an in-joke.

Lame.
Don't care.

Whatever.

Re: Rogue OM Squad 13.5: Rogues in Plain Sight [INTENT FOR VIRIDIS]

IMPORTANT ANNOUCEMENT

So, Friday night, I petitioned asking when to drop for a 10 AM 'cade cuz of the time change and all. I was told by [redacted] to drop at 10 AM Saturday. However, this was incorrect. Therefore, the 'cade will be at 9 AM.

I apologize to anyone inconvenienced. Believe me, I didn't plan on being up that early either.
