January Missions!

Extreme Butter Shortage!
Demand for freshly churned butter has skyrocketed in recent months, creating a dwindling supply and outrageous price-hikes across the Thor! Merry Maid's Butter Warehouse is rising to the challenge, though, and hiring outside labor for the first time in its nearly 120-year history!

Retail Rivals Up the Ante!
Sworn rival clothing businesses "Abracadabra and Finch" and "French and Alakazam" are getting serious this month, unleashing a contrasting controversial sales-pitch in their attempt to outdo one another in the cut-throat clothing retail business! The former is introducing shirtless salespersons to its pristine and glistening salesfloor, while the latter is mixing it up with pantsless rivals! Whether these opposing sales pitches offend or delight is in the eye of the beholder, it's sure to be an interesting month when shopping for clothes!

Star Reporter eaten by Space Serpent!
The Lightning Post's star reporter Xsldkfj Xwelrkj met a sad and possibly avoidable end last weekend at the mouth of a very vexed and hungry space serpent. Details are unclear and information is limited, but what we do know is that both Xsldkfj and Xsldkfj's numerous articles will be sorely missed.

December Missions

OOC Info:

The Elevator Strike
Following several days of striking, the Vogons and the EU were able to negotiate an end to the hostilities. The president of the EU was heard saying, "We are very pleased with the progress that's been made. There were a few concessions, namely the Flatulence Fine, but overall these negotiations mark the beginning of serious improvements for Elevator-kind."


Squid Flu Outbreak
Since the S.S. Thor's departure from Mineralisc, there have been sixteen reported cases of squid flu aboard the ship. Squid flu is highly contagious, and its symptoms include fevers, coughing, sneezing, nausea, and turquoise urine. In severe cases, squid-like behavior is also exhibited, including ‘tangling’ with other people and vomiting ink. All residents of the S.S. Thor are urged to take caution, wash their hands frequently and get their squid flu vaccination shots.


Steak Fever Outbreak
Lately, everyone's stomaches have ached for steak! Whether it's beefsteaks, cheesesteaks or hamsteaks, the demand for steaks have been on the rise. If you're planning on taking your sweetie out for sirloin this holiday season, make your reservations now, because they're going fast!


Holiday Spirit Outbreak
The sound of carols and the smell of gingerbread are in the air. The trees are getting trimmed, strings of lights are being hung... and what's that warm, fuzzy feeling in your chest? That's right, the holidays are here! The shopping days are ticking down fast, so buy your gifts soon!


The S.S. Thor Community College Monthly Production Is...
... It's Festivus, Donnie Freem! This is a true childhood classic, brought to life on the stage. Auditions and casting are underway as we speak!

The Galactic Winter Games
Unfortunately, the S.S. Thor does not have its own teams for the Galactic Winter Games. Fortunately, the planet of Jamocha is outsourcing all of its teams to the S.S. Thor. Go the gold, Thor Jamocha!

Seeking Refugee Talent!
Ready to show off the skills you learned during your summers at band camp? There’s an upcoming orchestral concert at the ritzy Sapphire Theatre, but after an unfortunate swan attack at the Crystal Gardens, they’re missing a few key members. But don’t worry! With a little tuning and a lot of practice, the orchestra should be good to go! The show must go on! But hopefully not on and on and on and on and on...

Tea-House Turf War!
The up-and coming new Victoria's Tea Parlor is putting the heat on the Thor's long-established Yoshibara Tea House! Challenging the traditional and conservative Eastern-style establishment with its chic, lively environment and its cute Victorian-themed tea servers, Victoria's has been drawing in the customers in droves. In response, Yoshibara is looking to draw in some fresh faces and breathe some new life into a comfortable old theme. Does someone in the refugee population have what it takes to turn the tide in this teahouse tiff?

September Missions!

HELP WANTED
OOC Info:
Rat Infestation
Coragllian rats have been spotted on SS Thor in the mall area. This is terrible! These yellow rats have long been feared for their powers of creating illusions. They love to use this power to masquerade as cute and innocent bright-eyed blond human boys and try to fit in among humans. But make no mistake! These rats, which can grow to a size of up to two feet, are disgusting vermin that eat garbage and carry disease. They must be exterminated. Watch out for them!

Bestsellers: Your Roommate Could Be a Vampire
Is your roommate a vampire? They just might be! Pick up the best-seller Your Roommate Could Be A Vampire and find out what you need to look out for. It may be frightening, yes, but you need to know before you get bitten. The section on Types of Vampires will help you see if your suspect is a Classic Dracula type, an Elegant Gothic Vampire, a Teen Romance Vampire, a Buffy type, or a Lost Boys! Be sure to read the Vampire Extermination chapter to know what you need to do to get rid of your resident vampire before they try to profligate with you. Beware especially of pale skin, aversion to light, and sleepiness during the daytime. Remember, they can only come in if you invite them!

Entertainment: PirateScouts
PirateScouts, the popular video game that packages a bloody and violent historical theme in brightly colored characters and silliness for children, is becoming a live-action show. The heroic hip-hopping, breakdancing, swordfighting PirateScouts roam the fifteen seas in search of more and more money. Now their adventures have brought them into trouble, as the cunning Navy is chasing them and stopping them from getting their booty at every port they weigh anchor in. Can the PirateScouts get all the cash they need to retire at 25, or is it more money more problems? You can be part of the fun! Sign up for a role in the new TV show today!

July Missions!

OOC Mission Info:
Gubbagaffa
A trendy new food. No one knows what it is! And once you've smelled it, you really won't want to know. But it's selling like hotcakes, particularly among the aliens of Blobblyx, who lick it up like there's no tomorrow.

Game of Risk
All month, refugees will be allowed to try to dominate the countries of a world map-- maybe even your own! You can play the part of one of the countries in the game-- decide your strengths and national characteristics and fight or be taken over by others! It's all decided by a roll of the dice so anything can happen!

Poptart Cat Invasion!
These darling little snack-shaped creatures popped up as the Thor exited Improbability Space. They seem to be a carry-over from the de-activiation of the Infinite Improbability Drive. No one is sure if these adorable creatures are food or pet. What they do know is that they're horribly pesky! Creature Control is offering good money for the collection and detainment of these adorable mewling pastries.

Space Knights TV Show
the intergalactic blockbuster television series that's won hearts and minds all over the universe has now come to the Thor. Snag a part in this space saga and leave your mark on Thor entertainment history.

Fireworks
Remember, passengers! Fireworks of any kind are strictly forbidden on the SS Thor! If caught with fireworks by law enforcement, you can be fined 1 million sunflower seeds or a large wheel of cheese, or could even be facing jail time. Please make good choices!

June Missions!

OOC Mission News
Lonely Otaku: The Musical has come to the SS Thor. It’s the story of lonely otaku and their hug pillows, blow-up dolls, doujinshi, mecha models, and action figures! Those who sign up for parts in this musical extravaganza are free to make up characters and plot as they please. Go for broke! MOÉ!!!!

Those bigots Thor for Thorians and Residents Against Refugees are at it again, trying to hire refugees to turn in their own kind by falsifying paperwork and intimidating refugees. Will your character go turncoat? It’s a great way to be a jerk!

Gammelian Roaches have been spotted aboard the SS Thor. These roaches look like adorable uniformed schoolgirls on the outside in their larval stage, but don't be fooled, on the inside they are nasty vermin-filled pests that eat garbage and spread bacteria all about! The adult Gammelian Roach measures more than two meters long and can lay up to three hundred eggs a day. They prefer to nest in coffeeshops and bookstores. Want to fight the Gammelian Roaches? See Maintenance.

Want to handle hot weiners all night long? Hot Diggity Dog has just the mission for you! See Culinary.

Crabs, crabs, crabs: You may notice that I Got Crabs is asking employees to cook crabs and deliver them door to door. You may also notice that SS Thor Animal Control is asking for agents to capture and destroy all crabs on site. Does anyone else forsee a problem here?

Dancing With The Refugees has come to the SS Thor! This contest TV show pits pairs of refugees against one another and forces them to learn to dance in front of everyone. Couples will undergo harsh training all month long until they can dance elegantly enough to impress the judges. The winning pair of refugees will receive one huge cash prize, a complete fashion remodel of their rooms, and new wardrobes! It's time to cut a rug!

The TOURISM section of the missions are those that happen down on the planet. Protected Species on Wrryndia are dragons and pixies. If you sign up for a job or have your character take actions in which your character might be suspected of harming one, feel free to have law enforcement on the planet track your character down.

Pirates vs. SS: Sky pirates on Wrryndia such as Captain Black Takeshi are recruiting for their crews. However, Wrryndian law enforcement is after these buccaneers and their booty. Feel free to have this lead to whatever entanglements you like. Wrryndia’s Sky Soldiers are recruiting too! Want your character to gain a taste of what life is like in the armed forces? Rumor has it that the SS gets cuts of any pirate treasure they bring in!

The Universe’s Extreem Games will be held towards the end of the month. You may have your character acquire equipment, a spiffy outfit, and lessons on the planet to get ready for the contests. Many of the jobs this month have to do with boarding fashions, lessons, or getting photos of refugees shredding some air. Have fun with it.

Wrryndia’s light festival of Rrrysha is happening every Friday night this month. Feel free to have your character take part in the festivities. Floating candle lanterns are released at twilight and prayers spoken to the spirits and ancestors. People take part in Maypole-like traditional dances in which everyone holds a purple string and the crowd untangles to find their “special person” on the other end. Sweet foods are cooked around a campfire, and the pixies and Wrryndians sing ancient songs late into the night. You are free to add your own ideas to the events as you like

May Missions!

OOC Info:

FAST FOOD WARS
Harpy Burger may be the "place that families love to dine," as the ads say, but a competitor for Harpy Burger's hold on the fastfood market has emerged! The Crispy Minotaur is saturating the airwaves with advertising aimed at the males 17-30 market, with fast-paced, sarcastic, edgy commercials that use the hippest popular music, video games, and sexy celebrities to attract young adults' tiny attention spans. Their "Minotaur Munches" commercial during the Galactic Bowl last month even showed the attitude-packed Minotaur King biting the head off of a dead ringer for Harpy Burger's fun-loving, kid-friendly mascot, Harpy McBird. Thor residents will see ad wars and costume mascots for both franchises trying to win the hearts and minds of the public in their own ways.



CABIN BOYS GONE WILD
The SS Thor was rocked by the departure of the Sly Seabream, host of its favorite reality show, Real Cabin Boys of the SS Thor. The show is looking for a new host now, one who can get the real scoop and the footage that brings all the shock and drama of the worst reality TV. Remember poor Jace, with his surgery mishap, his surprise pregnancy, and his narcoleptic middle-aged boyfriend? The show's producers are hoping to top that this year with even more heartbreaking news. It doesn't matter if what you say is true or not, the more over the top the more people seem to love it! Get on out there and twist those facts for your rabid fans!



WEST SIDE GALAXY STORY
In this high-energy martial arts musical, Mariasnaxl and Tonygurrb, refugees from very different worlds, meet at a dance party in their rescue ship and fall hopelessly in love. But Tonygurrb is from Planet Thubglub, and a member of the Comets, a delinquent gang of criminals. Mariasnaxl is a proud Sxpan warrior, from the planet of Chxisss, and sworn to protect only the clan. Mariasnaxl's brother Brrrbo, leader of the Sxpans, forbids Mariasnaxl to ever see Tonygurrb again. What will become of this sad love? It's your turn to decide! Thor Community College is now holding casting calls (all parts open to any species/gender), and seeking set designers and a director.



THEME PARK PARADISE

Serve drinks at Palm Paradise's sexy, suntanned beaches. Design your own rollercoaster at Rollercoaster Ravine. Treat stings on the swimmers at Raging Waters' Jellyfish Reef!
