Intergalactic 911

Affirming Paradise
Part 1

Notes:

  • Police que and wasted folder space
  • Mundi, he is nice but he does have this weird thing with moisturizer
  • You got who to sponsor what?
  • I punched your window and stole your things, what do you mean you wont put me in jail?
  • Mary Anne's pies
  • Villagers don't just disappear do they?
  • So many mushrooms, at least they are tasty.

A Day in the Life
These people are whack

Once we hit planetside, I wanted to get a sense of the local population so I went souvenir shopping.  These humanoids wear the similar clothes – everyone is in pastels with brown piping or trim and a slight shimmer.  Buying some clothes and chattering with the local store operators, they seemed a bit happier than your average population with a great amount of affirmation towards each other.

Zeta led is to a not so bright leader of the local Constabulary: Ronnie.  He was pleasant, but found nothing of importance at any of the disappearance site.s  We commandeered his files and found he has no real authority (or expected need) to arrest anyone.  He has no weapons – one wonders why he even has his job.

The local populace seems to get upset when they can't provide you with a helpful answer to a question.  When you provide them with one they didn't already have, they readily agree.  Seem a little brainwashed – no one ever fights and they have no jails.  I know – Grix and I tried to get arrested.  Vandalism and theft, they seemed to want to just push it all away and forget it happened.

A visit to the Sponsors building proved uneventful, we weren't able to meet with them directly.  But we did get an appointment with the sponsors in a day and a half.  And Grix scored a couple data pads and a sweet splatter pattern on a potted fungus.

My running theory is that the interspecies sponsors all have a hand in the planet.  There is no competition for supply – each area of the colony has only one provider.  They chose a specific species that was easy to train into affirmative control and they have a process for dealing with people that can't fit into the norm.  We just need to answer what is happening with the missing folk and report it to the people that hired us – the Elders.

Chester and I questioned the relatives and friends of the last few humanoids that disappeared.  He ran data routines in his machine, and we did find some commonalities.  Each person that disappeared is a farmer for the sponsored mushroom farms which is about 40-50% of the population.  Zeta and Grix went on a tour and collected samples.  Mild suspicion that soil samples may contain blue humanoid parts.  Chester started analyzing them…  here we gooo!

GrixSquad LiveStream Notes :: S01E01
GrixSquad's First Day!

Hey all you #Grixfans&Minivans! I've got some notes from this week's livestream and I think you're gonna love all of them, as usual!

Unity Police Force finally gave me my own squad! It's a weird bunch of characters, but I think they'll be useful.  My stream views almost tripled once I started working with them. People love the #Grixsquad. That's right! Our new squad name! There was a lot of debate about the name of our team from the others in the previous few weeks. You all remember when I asked for name submissions a month back or so? Well I went through them and I took the best suggestion from the pool! I think it went over great! I took the GrixSquad’s silence as agreement.

GrixSquad suited up and followed my lead as we were sent out on assignment by HQ. I look good myself, but I look even better when I've got my crew slow motion walking behind me in an opening shot. The planet we went to was pretty chill. I took a bunch of great #selfies on the ride over and I think I got a good tip for a sweet moisturizer brand from our driver.

We talked to Ronnie, head of security. Nice dude, great shade of blue. He served me tea and gave me some good factoids on the planet, since one of our assignments was to contribute to the planet's wiki article. I am on point for HQ. I sent the footage back to my editing crew, so keep an eye out! I should have a vid up by end of week. There's also a bunch of missing people, and Ronnie assured me that their clothes disappeared with them. This at least rules out raptures, ghosts, or sudden streaking of any kind. The rest of the #GrixSquad went through his place top to bottom, but the guy had no more information. He didn't have much of anything really. Not even guns and stuff. He didn't seem too bothered, I guess my presence inspires confidence in others! He knew that The Grix has his back. I think I'm packing more heat than anyone else on the planet right now, #winning #BaddestDudeHere #Grix&StonesWillBreakYourBones.

Psymun and I went for a walk to see some Sponsers and get some answers. Word must have spread fast about me being the most well-armed dude on the planet. I think everyone was really happy that I was even around and incredibly friendly. Everyone was super happy just to see me even when they couldn’t answer my questions. It’s hard to not have my reputation to precede me, I guess. No one even cared when I tested my #GrixKnux on a window.

Sponsors wouldn’t see us without an appointment. Big surprise. I tried to explain to Psymun sometimes one has to use head-explodey powers to grease the wheels of buerocracy. He didn’t understand and refused. Oh well. Just more suspense to build for the #GrixSquadFans until I finally convince him to use it. The sponsors, center generously donated two tablet computers to our cause, them being such big fans.
 

Zeta and I went on a tour of the mushroom facilities. It was right around here that I started having problems with my live stream, as I’m sure you all noticed. Apologies, my tech team is working on a fix #StreamerProblems. Nothing of note happened. It was a tour of the mushroom stuff. We grabbed some soil to analyze. The rest of the squad has apparently seen Soylent Green a few times, since everyone suspects foul play on this planet. I’m inclined to agree but I’m not going to take out my “jump to conclusions” mat just yet.

Gotta wrap up here. I know that everyone’s #AwedByTheGrixSquad, so stay tuned for more updates! See you next time #GrixFans!
