ULTRA Mini-Contest #4: Apr 10 to 24 [Closed]

Postby Cralis on Mon 11 Apr 2011 01:11

Welcome to the fourth ULTRA Mini-Contest!

This mini contest is: BEST NEW RANDOM EVENT

This week we are doing a fairly general contest, looking for any kind of random event. There are a ton of random events in the Appendix HH rules, but we would like to see some exotic random events. The random events can be for any chart and be just about anything. Surprise us!

Parameters:
1. Must be a random event that can go into a random event chart.
2. Must include rules on how to handle the random event.

Good luck!

The Menagerie
Unexpectedly, a large freighter/liner fleet has arrived in a random system holding the greatest collection of creatures and beings ever seen. In the affected system, production slows to a crawl as the citizenry flocks to see this unique event. Despite the drop in productivity, however, the system sees greatly increased revenues and immigration as citizens and non-citizens alike flock in to see this marvelous spectacle. The Menagerie is protected by powerful cloaked warships that are capable of fighting off any attack. They are not interested in doing anything other than protecting the Menagerie's ships. They come and leave via interstellar space and move with advanced Jc engine speeds.
The effects: SY build rates are halved, Tech Item research may purchase only half the normal RP (usually 5) for projects, though acceleration may be purchased normally, and IU income is halved. Income from PU sources is doubled and +1 PU bonus growth is added every month this event is in effect. The month after the Menagerie leaves, production and income returns to normal but no growth happens as a large number of beings have left to join the Menagerie.

Rogue Asteroid

A rogue asteroid from the Ort Cloud has been detected on a collision course for one of your habitable planets (non home system). You will have to get a ship or ships into the system to destroy the asteroid before it hits the planet in 3 turns.

The asteroid takes 250 HTK to destroy it. If it is not destroyed it will strike the planet killing all higher life forms on the planet and reduce the planet's habitability by two categories.
ie. A benign planet would become a hostile environment, a harsh environment would become desolate, and harsh environment would become extreme.

Ship Cashe

On a newly discovered planet an underground hanger (after appropriate planetary survey is done) with a ship in it is found.

Inside the underground hanger you find a single Destroyer that is atmosphere capable.
