Dangerous Broadcast Plot Notes

Prologue / Setup

On a single day at a precise moment, a broadcast intrudes upon television and radio transmissions all over the world and a text message appears on phones world wide.

In our modern era everything is supposed to be traceable, Internet addresses, domain names, phone numbers, all the metadata that make up the modern technological world provides a sea of information. This is supposed to help keep us safe and make our lives easier.

On January 3rd, 2022 at exactly 1000 hours UTC a signal goes out across the globe. It is in our communications everywhere, text messages filter their way to every phone across the globe. Radio and TV stations worldwide are interrupted at that very moment. A message appears, a message that cannot possibly be true. It must be a hoax, if it were true it would mean the very nature of what everyone thinks of as reality is changed.

No one knows where it came from or how it appeared everywhere at the same time. All that remains are the three parts to the message.

  • Text
  • Audio
  • Video

It is a trail and a mystery.

Plot Information

This plot is a cross-setting event. It will take place across the Blazing Umbra and Angelic Sins settings. It will start with the appearance of what the news media will dub the Aberration Broadcast. The name comes from the callsign featured in the all medium of the broadcast: 4B3RR4710N. The transmission is from the future and is not supposed to be there.

Ground Rules

Some things to get straight first. No amount of metadata / digital tracking from the original sources, within the game, will reveal the source of the information and / or if the information is true.

Technical Information – The Callsign

The callsign will be broadcast on all mediums in some way. In the video & audio transmissions the signal will be an RTTY burst sent as audio at the beginning and end of the transmission.
