Commentary: I know I said that I'd be working on Ace's suggestions, but there's little time left until I go to Turkey once again for a month (where I won't have access to the desktop, thus no access to SC4) so this'll be the last entry until July. :P

But in July, when I get back, [natural] disaster hits Queensland!!! :devil:[/centre]

Great update! I like the new graphics. It's going to be odd not seeing Queensland for a month...

A Dusty End

Update #18 - The Finale

Greater Brisbane, Queensland Capital District

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUWIQLnHB3o

Image
The dust storm originated in the southwestern portion of Queensland in the late evening, gaining strength closer to Brisbane later at night...

Image
Near the foothills of Mount Coot-tha...

Neighbour 1: Hey, Mike!
Neighbour 2: Hey, Peter, how are you?
Peter: Doing well. Did you hear, Goverland just joined AIN!
Mike: Aww, did they? Well, they're about to taste the bureaucracy that comes with this union.
Peter: Haha! You know, Mallory's threatened to leave unless the union deals with Tirnreich and Moritz.
Mike: I hope they don't, so we can leave. I've had enough.
Peter: You have?
Mike: You bet. So much of my tax money is going to this Alliance-related nonsense. Especially the Liberal Monarchist sh*t.
Peter: Tell me about it.
Mike: I mean, do we really need to meddle in other countries' sh*t, trying to give them "democracy"? And with money we could be using for stuff that actually helps US? Public works, infrastructure...
Peter: I feel you. And we haven't even succeeded in bringing that democracy anywhere yet. Let's just pull out before it coll--...
Mike: Peter?
Peter: Is that cloud...?
Mike: What cl--... Ohh, sh*t, mate.

Image

Mike: It's a f**king dust storm.
Peter: No sh*t. You should probably get inside, that's what I'll be doing. Miranda!
Miranda: I see it, Pete! Now get inside!
*Peter runs inside with Miranda*
Peter: Close all doors and windows. Turn off the A/C. Hurry.
Miranda: All of the doors and windows are closed, sweetie. *turns off air conditioning* There.
Peter: Holy sh*t, I can't see anything outside anymore. It's all black and red. F**k, now I feel the house shaking. You feel that shak-- Aah!
*windows shatter, front door bursts open, Miranda and Peter are knocked down*

Image
Above Brisbane Airport...

Helicopter Pilot on radio: Uhh... two terminals have just been hit by the dust storm. I see buses near the runways being picked up, and they're falling. F**k, they just crashed, I hope they weren't carrying any passengers. Uhhh, planes parked in front of the terminals are colliding with each other. I've never seen a dust storm like this before. What the f**k? My god, it looks to me as if the terminals imploded. Windows are gone, all I see is their frames. The roof, I can't see. I don't think there are any survivors in those terminals. The air traffic control tower is... swaying? It can't collapse, can it? It's GOING DOWN. SH*T! I'd... uhhh... I'm going to attempt an emergency landing right here. I have no chance of surviving if that thing hits while I'm at this height. I don't see any flat surfaces below, though. I'm lowering the altitude. It's coming fast, I can't land before it hits. Lord, please help me. Please protect me. I'm only a hundred metres up. 95... 90... 80... 75... 70... please, please... 55... 45... 40... It's coming. 35... No! No, come on--

Image

Anchorman: This is an official emergency warning, ladies and gentlemen. Take shelter immediately. Find an area below surface, or as close to the surface as possible, and hide there. If you're in a skyscraper, or a high-rise, and you can't get to the surface, go to the core of the building. The building will provide you a lot of protection. Do not leave your home or workplace right now unless it is absolutely essential. All flights at Brisbane Airport for tonight have been cancelled and all public and intercity transportation will likely be cancelled. This is an unprecedented storm that has winds comparable to a tornado or a nuclear explosion. Department of Parliamentary Services reports that all Senate, House of Representatives, and Federation Chamber sittings have been cancelled for tomorrow. This is for senators and Members of Parliament. Prime Minister's Office reports that the Prime Minister has been taken to a safe area in an undisclosed location.

Image
Image

The Parliament was destroyed. Nature wiped out the Establishment, wiped out our politics.

Image

Then it took care of our entertainment, our life outside of work.

Image
Image

Finally, it came to end the last two aspects of our life. Our work, and us. The dust storm entered the city centre, where most people work and live.

Image

Before it wiped us out, it showed us its true face. Pure, unmodified darkness.

Only then, it all ended.


Image

The city is gone. The federation is gone.

Thanks for being a great audience for this CJ! :D Thank you for viewing!

Poor QLD there isn't much hope now... Wait what's that? I see a light! It our saviours from New Holland! :P

New Holland is monitoring the situation and is preparing to assist the remains of the Queensland government in coordinating rescue efforts and restoring order.

What an extremely powerful dustorm! D:
It would have affected the Gold Coast too!

The Commonwealth of Mirani would like to assist Queensland anyway it can, rescue efforts in Brisbane and other affected areas.

The Federation of Queensland thanks the Commonwealth Realm of New Holland and the Commonwealth of Mirani for their assistance.

Thanks for commenting! :D Though I wouldn't advise much roleplay; I've already begun the application thread for my new nation. :P
