> Planet Parted
Our story begins on the somewhat familiar planet of ALTERNIA. Here, countless trolls are hatched. Only a lucky few survive the trials of the brooding caverns, and are permitted to begin life on the planet's surface. An even smaller number survive on this brutal planet to the age of 10 sweeps, at which point they must leave the planet and join the rest of their race in interstellar conquest. A small number of trolls will move into the last category tonight, as their 10th wriggling day passes. If they are in good shape and have properly prepared, they may be able to survive the ordeals that will take place for them over the next few hours.
Let's meet the first of those we will follow as they prepare to deal with being PLANET PARTED.
> Zoom in on green hive
We take a closer look at the hive with the green windows. The sun has set quite recently, so only a few trolls are awake at this hour. It seems that the resident of this hive is up and about, taking a look at the neighborhood from an extraterraneal landing slat, likely very aware of what is about to happen. If you want to be this troll, you'll have to zoom in quite a bit more so you can see them.
> Zoom in a lot more
WHOA! TOO CLOSE!
Let's zoom out a bit, so that we aren't in the face of this greenblood lady.
> Zoom out. Do it right this time.
That's better. Where were we? Ah yes, her introduction...
A young greenblood stands outside her respiteblock. As implied earlier, today, the 19th bilunar perigee of the 5th dim season's equinox, is the day of this young troll's larval awakening, also known as her wriggling day. Though it was 10 sweeps ago she was given life and a name, only tonight will that name be entered into the fleet records.
What will that name be?
