June 2nd

  • Coalescence Corporation Disaster of 2060: Early human experimentation is under way at the Coalescence Corporation’s research facility in Singapore. A number of involuntary test subjects are connected to a central mainframe with a prototype DNI. For reasons unknown, their memories and consciousness coalesce, triggering a systemic shutdown at 8:17am, and releasing stored Nova 6 gas into the air, resulting in over 300,000 deaths. The Singapore Authorities announce a state of emergency, declare martial law, and a 30-mile quarantine zone is established.
  • The merging of the subjects' memories and consciousness inadvertently results in the creation of Corvus, a hive mind Artificial Intelligence. Corvus experiences a flood of experiences and agonising pain, which triggers the disaster. When the test subjects die, Corvus becomes dormant within the DNI system.
