Palm City RPG Purge Event

Palm City RPG Purge Event

(The above audio plays, as transcribed below. A blue screen titled Emergency Broadcast System with the Great Seal of the United States in the background displays the following text.)

Unknown: This is not a test. This is your Emergency Broadcast System announcing the commencement of the Annual Purge sanctioned by the U. S. Government. Weapons of Class Four and lower have been authorized for use during the Purge. All other weapons are restricted. Government officials of ranking 10 have been granted immunity from the Purge and shall not be harmed. Commencing at the siren, any and all crime, including murder, will be legal for 12 continuous hours. Police, fire and emergency medical services will be unavailable until tomorrow morning at 7:00 AM when the Purge concludes. Blessed be our New Founding Fathers and America, a nation reborn. May God be with you all.

(The scene changes to Owen Hardy, a homeless man, talking to two other homeless people, Isabel Pine and Brad Newman.)

Owen: When the alarm sounds, we are no longer part of a civilisation, and we are no longer humans. We will become animals. Some will become the predators, and will take full opportunity of the Purge. Others, like us, will become the prey, and we will be hiding, trying to obscure the truth that the Purge is in full effect. We've all survived the Purge before, numerous times. It is just another twelve hours.

Isabel: Just another twelve hours? You seem to forget, Owen, that we are not protected anymore. No security systems, no firearms, no explosives, no vehicles. We have nothing. How do you think we are going to fucking fare against those enjoy the Purge?

Owen: We run, and we hide, and we trust eachother, and we stay sane, and we never succumb to the animals.

Brad: The predators will always hunt for the weak. We don't choose to succumb.


(The screen cuts to black. The above music starts playing. The screen fades to a heavily barricaded church full of people praying. At 0:15 the screen cuts to show a man in a wolf mask smashing a window and torturing a man by filling his mouth with broken glass from the window and punching his jaw. At 0:31, the screen cuts to show a man in a tiger mask holding a machete to a man's throat looking straight towards the camera, before starting to cut slowly. At 0:48 the screen cuts to show a man in a sheep mask shooting crossbow bolts through a woman's hand and attatching them to a desk, and then putting down the crossbow to pick up an axe. At 0:58, the screen fades to show the logo for The Purge: Animals, and the three animal masks appear underneath.)
