INITIATE AUTHORITY CONTAINMENT AND COVER-UP PROTOCOL.

At 04:37 on June 13th, 2019, a long neglected fail-safe in the depths of the underground Site-014 was activated. The resulting 5 kiloton nuclear explosion wreaked havoc on the surrounding Nevadan countryside. With the main section of the site destroyed, those who are left need to find any way that they can to endure. Who knows what the survivors will see in the irradiated wasteland that is now their home, and could be their grave.

To participate in this in-canon event write or create anything you wish about the preceding events or resulting effects of the blast. Options can include the anomalies, the site, operations in the Authority, GOI involvements and the civilians affected. You are highly encouraged to collaborate and interact with each others writings. You may submit at any time. Only items submitted before or on July 14th will be eligible to get featured. Once the eligible submissions have gained 8 votes each (in interest of fairness) the four submissions with the highest scores will be featured on the front page.
