April 2018 Game-Wide Event Part Two
By Sunday afternoon, five days after the explosion and resulting collapse, only a few people are left trapped inside the Facility and are expected to be rescued with 24 hours. As on the 22nd, there are two known fatalities, one human government worker and one mutant; all of the injured will survive with healing and/or treatment. To address the human fatality, the government releases a statement to the public media blaming a mutant for the explosion. More specifically, they place the blame on a so-called mutant terrorist group dubbed The Faction. To support their claim, the government released strategically cropped photos of the building collapse that show the rubble and the injured, but show no mutants assisting in the rescue effort. Almost immediately, public social media calls for stricter mutant regulations and registration. Some politicians even propose that mutants with dangerous powers should be locked away or 'neutralized' before they can hurt anyone else. Now more than ever, the government and more of the public consider mutants 'the enemy.' Mutant rights support group numbers dwindle overnight.
