Good episode? Give it some love!
c/w police violence and named NPC death (1:21:30 to 1:25:46. If you skip the description but want the facts, check below episode notes), natural disaster (earthquake)
“Those moments were just a glimpse though. They’d soon be brought to an end. Disaster brings out the best in communities, and the worst in authority.” I can’t remember if it was Serrivomer or Boctive that said that, but either way, those words would prove prophetic.”
For a week after the earthquake, the people of Atrium, Calvary, Hinter and Holm are left to fend for themselves. Absent of the council’s attention, community effort, and grassroots organising help them to recover from the earthquake.
As the earthquake's effects make themselves known, the Jubilant Maybe spend time helping their community's efforts. They fix infrastructure, secure food, help out their families, and give people a way to relax.
This strange lull won’t last though; the void of authority is temporary. It’s no surprise when they move to take back what’s theirs.
