    //A post, originating from several news stations around the nexus, has been making the circuits. It has no reason to be circulating as it is, yet it still has made its rounds throughout those backwater channels so many call home online; treasure hunters, bounty fiends, and homeless mercenary companies alike all seem to be homing in on it.

    The catch? The post is of a single, small town, recently abandoned and left to rot in the middle of a desert. Though there are rumors of riches and treasures below the dunes, the town itself is utterly unremarkable. The planet is not in a great position for trade, nor is it situated for industry; the hype, along with a single manse of decent wealth, is its only saving grace.

    Still, this planet, dubbed Heartless, is fertile ground for those looking to stake a claim in this galaxy, and many plot to take it. With a group of men, anyone could do it; there might even be something worthwhile there.


    This is planned to be an on-server exploration event requiring characters to explore a small town to scout the place out.

    The reward for a successful completion? Ownership of the town and further events.

    Each involved character should have a defined reason for wanting be there or owning a piece of land; they should not just be looking for loot. I get the appeal, but I want to take this further (and also introduce a hub off of this.) Once done, the hub will be a place where people will be able to run on-server events without much oversight; send me a DM, and we'll get it set up. In addition, I plan to have it as mutable as possible; all it will take to change it is a mention and an IC reason.

    Tentatively, this event is planned for the 30th of December at 2:00 PM CST. I will prioritize applicants with new characters. Apply below with the following format:

    I hope to see you there! I plan on taking at least five people. My discord tag is ninernount.))
