This idea developed in a discussion between Nevah and moritz.
We want a horror-themed station, working title Cthulhu Station.
Due to orbital shenanigans, it is only available/reachable some of the time.
Visiting it is high risk, high reward.
- No Sick Bay
- No Government Center
- No Inn
- No Employment area
- No Security
- No Bank
- Occasionally, an unnamed horror creeps out and attacks a random player. With no chance to fight, slim chances to flee. The attack is so traumatizing that the survivor (or the clone, in case of not being able to flee) has severely reduced Intelligence and Social for the next tenspan
- Maybe life support isn't so great, so character health degrades over time (stats and focus don't full regenerate if you stay there more than two days or so), or movement between areas costs stats and/or Focus here
To make a visit there worthwhile, the rewards need to be pretty good as well. Some ideas:
- you can occasionally get epic items from Look for Trouble or discreet work
- maybe VIP is purchasable for credits (limited amount per player and time)?
- items that can only be obtained on that station
