Panic In Detroit Towers

Breaking news on all Cit-Vid channels................

The exclusive Wealth-Hab-Zone of Detroit Tower was the scene of carnage today as an armed jailbreaking mob of vicious convicted crim-perps shot their way out of the Crim Zone of Penal One.

The Crims storm across the bridge and head for the security gate

The Security booth is taken by "Smiling Al", the crim leader 

Armed with illegal zap pistols the mob overwhelmed the PSC guards manning the security booth and powered down the nano fence. The guards fought hard and numbers of the crims were shot off the bridge from the max sec perp pen. A thin line of PSC troopers was simply overun by a knife and pistol toting gang of liberty hungry thugs, followed up by hardened gangers with armed with burp guns

The crims flood into Detroit Towers

As the PSC caved in, the gangers flooded into the Hab Towers, innocent citizens fleeing by turbo lift and skimmer, carrying what they could. A few hardy citizens joined the remants of the PSC and tried to hold the streets but were shot down by the murderous crims.

Citizens flee as the last few PSC troopers hold off the crazed crims

Meta City is in a state of panic as military gyro copters loaded with Security Consultants are being lifted in to make an assault on Detroit Towers. Reports of vid delivery men being shot by nervous citizens have been denied by the Mayors Office.

Mayor Brumby of the majority Popular Liberal City for the People Party has promised a full investigation and a review of sentencing policy, "this can't happen again," he said on vid link from his apartment on Hab-Sybarite-2.

  1. Excellent Posting!

    Enjoyed this read a lot.


  2. Great write-up of what looks like an exciting & fast game.

  3. Glad you liked it Gents, it was a great bit of fun. I should have added that Thin Lizzy's "Jailbreak" was in my mind.

    Also, this represents a clear departure from W79 and while some of you are OK for a bit of sci fi, many are here for the SLRs, '58 webbing and all that 70's Glam Rock trash so close to Mark's heart. So, any future posts on Meta City One will be found n few parsecs away at (gratuitous plug posing as infomercial alert...)



  4. Excellent stuff, I enjoy your blog as bit of escapism and it has a fair amount of Squaddie Banter which tells me you are ex-forces as well. I'm another South Wales Gamer down in CARDIFF.

  5. Glad you like it! Mark is ex services, I'm firmly civ, though oddly in the last year I've been asked twice if I was ex forces.

    I've had a look at your blog - very good re Lubeck!
