"Panathea - Bunyip Girl of Prophecy - Episode 7"
Grunt was knackered. Another food riot supressed, another few hundred dead. He stumbled in to see Panathea.
Grunt sat. "It was never this bad before."
"Before they had hope," he replied. "Too many people hoping for too much."
Pan looked out upon her city. Grunt was right. The numbers didn't add up. But she was the Bunyip Girl, here to bring the age of plenty.
Plenty was relative, however. If you can't increase supply, then reduce demand.
"Is that it?" she asked, "Am I prophesised to kill half the population?"
Grunt shook his head. Prophecies were just crap.
And there we are. The fun part about making it up as you go along is that you really don't know where it's going to go - and I really didn't think it would end up like this. Far bleaker than I was expecting, but then, maybe just beating the bad guys can't be the end - it really just gives something to start with. Beating the bad guys is the easy bit.
So Good Luck Pan, I hope you don't have to kill half your people but I leave it in your hands.
