Charon

The city of Charon

Ragnarok is a sandbox event that is canonical to the Convergence Series. The events of this take place generally after Civil War and throughout the Flash Point Era. It began on January 14, 2017.

Phase One can be found here.

Phase Two can be found here.

Plot Edit

To be a graduate of the Torch, is to do so in the knowledge that in doing so you become another ember. A spark that sets aflame all dark things and brings light where light itself may be weak or nonexistent. Nowhere is that more evident then the battlefield known as the Ashen Front.

Lately, on the planet of Ash, the Order has descended and turned it into a grueling war of attrition. Facing off against their forces, mercenaries and monsters, lie the Coalition and their allies.

Commander-in-chief Gaius, stationed in Charon, commands the forces of the Coalition, protecting its native race from the brutality of the Order. As the site of a former Murder Game, the planet has been majority twisted into a ruined and ghastly land by a cursed energy known as malevolence. Upon the front lines, agents are sent in droves to turn back the tide of nightmares. In the chasms of the world, others sends out sorties to discover and map out the semi-collapsed underground, sealing up boltholes and fighting alongside their comrades in skirmishes beneath the surface of the earth.

Whether you fight alongside your comrades at the front, protect the civilians who flock for protection on the dangerous road or seek answers in the dark, you are needed here desperately.

Welcome to Outpost 98-A6, AKA "Ragnarok".

You are one of many embers.

Time to light the flame.

Locations Edit

Charon Edit

The planet of Ash's capital city. Around thirteen million souls live here, with more constantly coming in by any means they can. Here, the city is used as the Command Center for the Coalition forces, as well as once a means of evacuation via portals-- At least, until it was proven the enemy could use them as well. Since then, the Coalition has opted to use more traditional means via shuttles to bring evacuees to a secure space station that circles the planet. Four gates, located on the points of the compass are the only ways known to enter the city besides flight.

Notable locales are the following within Charon:​

Command Center Ragnarok Edit

The nerve center of the stationed forces. Here, the overall strategy to save the world is made and the Commander-in-Chief and his staff are situated. ODMA also has a garrison stationed here.

The Ragnarok Garrison Edit

Since Charon has been declared under martial law, the Coalition keeps back a task force within its walls. Their objective is to keep the peace and protect the city, from internal forces, riots and enemy spies that may slip through. It's a full-time and thankless job, but an important one.

The Supply Drop Edit

Scattered throughout the city, these are meant to help distribute supplies for the civilians in an orderly fashion. More often than not, its a full-time job to prevent riots over canned food. Thankfully, the city hasn't gotten that dire but fear tends to fill the air like a noxious cloud, threatening the spread of malevolence.

The Cog-and-Sword Edit

Some citizens have thrown in their full support to the Coalition forces in thanks for Ragnarok's dedication, such as the Cog-and-Sword, a friendly bar run by the sultriest bartender you'd ever meet. Great for downtime - Just don't cause a scene.

The United Nations Volunteer Hospital Edit

An entire district of the city dedicated to the wounded and sick civilians, run primarily by the United Nations. Consisting of a mix of the Coalition's Mind agents, local medical infrastructure, and the U.N. people themselves, its primary focus is the civilian population and anyone else who needs them. Led by Dr. Maera.

The Fight Club Edit

Located within the Outer City and hidden from public view, the fight club provides catharsis for war-torn soldiers and escapism for the Upper City elite. It acts as an even, if uneasy, meeting ground for both sides of the war.

The Undercity Edit

Charon is a hive city, and its roots run deep. Down below, lies an entire city in the dark, run by those who keep the machines working. It's a dark existence, but crucial for all it is. What lies beneath, in that labyrinth of metal and shadow though it's anyone's guess.

UpperCity

The Upper City

The Upper City Edit

This is where those who bear influence and money in the city reside, along with their offices. The rich lie blissfully ignorant of the masses around them, barely affected by the Coalition and UN's takeover of the city's infrastructure.

Of note here is the GOC PSYCHE Division Office (a subdivision of the United Nations organization), which holds no official power. The GOC is just here to support Strike Team Phoenix, their Anti-Cult Strike Team. The PSYCHE Division office just has a representative who investigates reports of possible Order activity, and then deploys the Phoenix when necessary.

Medical Director Doctor Aline Maera's lab is also in this section of town. She and several other UN scientists work there in order to provide enough medicine for those in the Volunteer Hospital. It's designed after the Elysium Corporation from her world.​

OuterCity

The Outer City

The Outer City Edit

The crime-filled cesspool of Charon. Anything can be bought here: Supplies stolen right off of a UN resupply? Yup, they're here. Want a potent new drug that will be addicting and run you into debt? Yes, that's here. Need your roommate killed? That's definitely something you can get here. However, these things all come at a significant price.

A small sect of the Order resides here, meeting in the bar known as Moonlight. However, they currently don't have a way to contact any of the Order forces outside of the city, and with regular patrols into the Outer City increasing, they're losing.

The Subway Edit

The mostly-abandoned subway system of Charon. While parts of it are abandoned, other parts are used in a similar manner to London's Tube during the Blitzkrieg as shelters and other resources. The line is used as an underground troop transport to deploy troops and deliver supplies to various places around the city quickly and covertly.

Sancta Sanctorium Edit

The GOC's equivalent of a CIA Blacksite. A Sancta Sanctorum consists of guarded weapons caches, supplies, and other resources GOC and UN members require. Frequently, these buildings take up an entire floor of a building, or a townhouse, and consists of an armory, a library of magical tomes, a small command center, and supplies storage.

There are currently three known Sancta Sanctorum on Ash. One underneath the PSYCHE division office within Charon that is used as a shelter for important personnel and storage of important supplies. One located in the Outer City of Charon which is used to collect soldiers before they move into a battleground. It's also used as a place to hold soldiers and supplies during riots. A third located in the Old City on the battlefield, which is used as a Forward Operating Base by GOC and UN troops out in the field. It is also used as a temporary shelter and hospital for the wounded who can't return to Charon itself.​

The Battlefield Edit

The heart of the Ashen Front. Located miles from Charon and situated roughly center of the main continent is where the bulk of the battles take place. As this was once the site of numerous Coalition outposts, wreckage and discarded equipment litter the battlefield. The Order enjoy using shadowy means of attack, it is on the battlefield that the Coalition's forces most often meet creatures twisted by malevolence.

Notable locales are the following on the battlefield:​

Outway

The Outway

Outway Edit

Before one can reach Charon, they must pass through a Coalition checkpoint. Those deemed suspicious or corrupted by malevolence are turned away. In the time since its conception, this checkpoint has turned into a hub of activity, where traders have set up shop to see to the many that pour through this location. Bartering is the primary means of transaction, with many on the lookout for food, water, health, and safety.

Mercenaries make a name in Outway, tasked with protecting civilians and traders from beasts and people who would wish to hurt them. With the Coalition's attention drawn to other parts of Ash, mercenaries make up the bulk of the protective force around Outway.

The Airfield Edit

The airfield is always loud. Planes come in and out, soldiers loading and unloading from them, and cargo being counted and ready to send to supply drops. The old terminal is used as processing for those coming in and out. This is used as a base by the UN, which brings in relief and aid to those who need it. It's a resupply base for the Coalition and UN troops within the city, as well as providing some necessary aid to the affected citizens.

No-Man's Land Edit

Situated mostly on the former site of Kerberos is a largely barren land known as No-Man's Land. As Coalition forces dread coming out so far from Charon, the Order enjoys the area for its relative peace. Still, the land has traces of nuclear fallout and is known to cultivate horrible mutants.

Notable locales are the following within No-man's Land:​

Cathedral

The Cathedral

The Cathedral Edit

Whoever this cathedral originally belonged to is unknown. The once sacred church has been perverted and corrupted by the Order members that reside within. The grand structure now stands crumbling, surrounded by dense fog. No one knows what lies inside of the Cathedral, as no one has gotten close enough to it, but whatever it is, it spells trouble.

It's the site of a former Sanctum Sanctorum. However, several crazed former citizens have found it and have sort of fortified it against both other citizens, monsters, and anyone else.

The Hunting Ground Edit

Former Charon Upper City elite that have fled the city and established a community on the edges of No-Man's Land have created an area they use for sport. The elite kidnaps men and women from Charon and trap them within an enclosed maze. Often, the elite will hunt them down for fun and bet on the victim's odds of survival, but sometimes they will pit multiple victims against each other or let loose creatures to hunt them down instead.

The Dead Zones Edit

The seas of Ash that have dried up are considered the Dead Zones. No one truly knows what lies within the Dead Zones, for no living being has traveled into them and lived to tell the tale. All technology strangely stops functioning within the zones, even as far as a few miles above in the air.

Notable / Memorable Moments Edit
