...........................ON TROPICANA IN THE SOLARIS SYSTEM...........
Oh, Steve, I m so happy that we re finally on vacation!
I know, me too!
[chuckle] The Montresor bottle does the trick every time!
I now have Mr Larose in my pocket! he ll swallow everything I tell him!
Phillip does the work, and I take all the credit!
what a dork! he has no grumbas!
HI! My name is Dan, is it your first time here on Tropicana?
Yeah! we come from Vectrex, we re on vacation, I m Sandy!
I m Steve!
Happy to meet you!
I m a booking agent, what do you do?
I m an engineer for Larocket space corp!
I really made it! I have a big house, and a flashy brand new red Electra in the driveway!
I guess you must be a citizen then?
The citizen licence is for wimps!
I can manage on my own!
What are you doing????
Who needs help?
This man insulted me, and treathened me!
it s not true!
He did no such thing!
Only Mr Daniel Pearson has citizenship!
how would you like the matter resolved sir?
I ll take all his belongings, book him in a conditioning center for a month,
and, unless she wants to join him, I ll keep the girl!
...Good luck Steve, be strong!.......I ...I ll try to keep the Electra .....
Forget the car man, you re finished!
Well, that ought to teach Steve a lesson!
Dan seized the opportunity, and he harvested all the fruits of citizenship!
2 weeks vacation all expenses included plan, extra money, a house, car, and a hot date!
Don t be a bum, be a citizen NOW!!!
And we re back to our game!
let s see what Ben found behind door #1.......
Ben will feel the thrills and dangers of the city life, he has 10 mins to choose a door,
which conceils the money, or a menace, each door adds 5 mins to his time!
Ben chose door #1, the grumpy sleeper, and door #3, medic overdose!
he now has 10 mins added to his 6 mins left....
It does nt take him long to overpower grumpy, but the medic charges with
The medic did nt fare much better, as Ben quickly grabbed the seringe,
and terminated his assets...
With 10 mins left, Ben decided to open all the doors left,
right after picking up a shovel, the money was in house #4, puts $1000 in his account,
house #2 unleashes the dirty cook, and #5, the crooked mechanic, it adds another
15 mins to his time!
Ben charges the mechanic first, he succeed in hitting him a few times,
while the cook is swatting the spatula on the back of his head!
oups, technical difficulty....
The mechanic did nt last, and now Ben chokes the cook with the shovel...
Ben finished the challenge with an extra 4 mins in his time bank!
Ben is now in the bonus corridor, he has an extra 10 mins to grab as much money
as he can, the menace is the fire dept, but, they can t touch him as long as
he has time left!
He fills the cash box as fast as he can!
The technician reports that Ben has crossed the 'safe zone' 30 secs short of time out!
and has added $20 000 to his bank account!
for a total of $21 000!!!
he will now have 1 hour rest, and decides on which door to choose next...
As for Barbara, she had chosen door #3, which turns out to be; DARK AGE CHAOS!
since the dice was DOUBLE GAIN-CHANCE OF DEATH, the opposition was doubled,
she will have to defeat 8 challengers, but has 20 mins to do so,
she swiftly goes for the WEAPON RACK...
She picked up a lance, and signals the computer that she is ready!
OH! She already takes out one guard!
Barbara now uses the barrel to distance the other guard, and gain some time...
She took another lance, but is being charged by the guard!
The guard just impaled himself with the lance!!!
Barbara has now picked up the shield, and dodged the fool s attack while a guard aims
The lance barely missed her, and she blinds the fool while sticking her hard!
but the rest of the challengers are getting aggressive...
She deflected both weapons with her shield...
but, now the knights are coming to finish her...
Barbara has grabbed the long axe after she lost her shield, the guards are fumbling
on the fool s body in the stairs...
She mercilessly slashes the guards who tripped on the fool s body...
Trying to avoid the same fate, both knights stall thinking their next best move,
while Barbara runs to the other end of the room...
By the time it took them to figure a way out, she already picked 2 lances
and attacks as a fury!!!
Piercing the last knight s legs made sure he was out of combat!
With over 5 mins remaining, she had no problem making it to the 'safe zone' on time!
Back to you after those short messages....
CREATOR S LOG;
It took a fair amount of time to sort the last Globo scene...
this gives an idea of what to expect in this serie,
each new episode should get more dangerous and sophisticated,
the rooms and stages are still a bit basic, but, I will improve
on them over time.

reading your serie, it s obvious you re filled with lots of cool concepts, I can t wait to read them, I ll make sure to check with you about it when Chris has to change clothes, he has to clear some challenges first, I m hard at work on Genesis, then, probably Metal Legion, or Cybercity, so you still have time to brew it nicely.
Hehe.. Not quite what i expected but still very exiting nonetheless :-D Awesome, great work. I like the quad-bikes from the add and the various backgrounds for the show. Nice surprising storyline too! I have left a comment in the group :-)
Quoting Topsy Creatori
thank you Topsy! I thought of you while doing the beach scene, laughing to myself, xd, I just knew you d say something about it, the pages seem to have lost people, but, in my point of view, it s still the best place to be considering the freedom and versatility it has, it s less about pictures, more about scenes, and sculpting, hopefully, I ll contribute to it s appeal with my series!
So... just couldn't resist a beach scene, ha, ha! Sneaky way of including it too! I think my favorite photo shots on this are the views down the corrider. I tend to favor them, el Barto also has a few in his series. No need to explain the basic-ness of the layouts... I mean they fit... it's a TV show stage! I think, as you say, you wish to gradually update them and that gradual updating will be just like what is done as a show progresses and gets popular. So it all fits nicely! Fun stuff as always. Is it just me or is mocpages deadsville lately? I know I'm in a bit of a slump right now. So glad you are livening it up! :)

thanks Mike! yeah, let s hope we ll never come to that, I felt that I stretched a bit for Barbara, but, since she lived in a very tough neighborhood, we don t know what she s been through before... but, massages are very likely, xd.
Quoting Stephan N
thank you so much Stephan! I found that if I felt compelled to see them over and over, it was a good sign that it was well done, ever since my Meedass serie, I have no problem going back to read them again, funny fact, it s also when I began working harder on scripts...
Cyberfrank! You provide us a frightening glimpse at a possible future… Like all the best social commentary, yours is closer to our reality than we would like to think. However, I am compelled to agree with Deus on the notion of the second citizens success in a battle against so many opponents. She seems to be almost ninja like in her abilities. But then again, in a narrative of this complexity, who is to say she isn’t a ninja? Perhaps a wolf disguised as a sheep , and sent in to rain destruction on this circus of decadence and cruelty… Oh, the drama. Attack right after this important massage from our commercial sponsors!
Wow! Frank wow! This is an epic series. I love the commercial at the beginning . It was like watching one of those identity theft commercials. Awesome action, Ben is off to a great start . I can't wait to see how Barbra and Chris do. Excellent!
