He knew it was only a matter of time before his message reached the ears of every single one of them, the video would be too much a story for the media to ignore. In their search for something as meaningless as ratings they would allow themselves to be his willing pawns in his game. It had been years since he had felt the slightest thrill of the unknown, the smallest bit of uncertainty against an opponent that might finally show themselves his match. At the very least he will humble those sorely in need of such, the gods will tumble from Mt. Olympus and be shown just how mortal they truly are.
Greetings citizens of the world, my identity is unimportant, yet the contents of this message are of the utmost. At this time there are eight locations that have been targeted by my agents and can be set to explode at any time I wish, for those law enforcement agencies who wish to respond I should note these are spread across the globe, good luck to you. Should my demands be met you have my explicit guarantee that not a single man, woman, or child will be harmed, but for every order defied, there will be a terrible price.
I will at midnight tomorrow provide a list of 8 names, each one an esteemed member of the heroic community that according to themselves and their boasts, are there to protect you all. Their claims shall be put to the test, we shall see if they truly are the paragons and legends they hold themselves up to be.
Failure of one of them to respond will result in a location and everyone therein destroyed.
Outside interference of any kind will result in all eight being destroyed.
Test me at your peril, I will not be denied, that is all.
(Elsewhere 8 unoccupied schools explode into nothingness as a stern warning.)
The 8 heroes have not yet been decided, should you choose to submit yourself for consideration be very aware that your character will be put through complete hell to a level I can only reinforce will be extensive. No character that enters will ever be the same, if they survive.
Very open minds and brass balls only for this one people.
Submit what alt(s) you want to be reviewed and a 1-10 rating of how far you will let them be altered. (1 meaning superficial, 10 meaning anything)
The event will begin as soon as the new alt lock has been dealt with and I will select the 8 based on diversity.
