Welcome to Beta-Lab C7V9 V.2.2!
We couldn't do it without you!




!------------------------------|Remember|------------------------------!

"If your best is all you've got, you'll do just fine here!"
- Founder Of Beta-Lab Benny Shultz

!------------------------------|Remember|------------------------------!




The year is 2027. Technology is at it's peak, and you're very thankful for everything Beta-Lab has done for you. Beta-Lab is a research facility thousands of miles underground in the Arizona desert. The goal of Beta-Lab was to create technology for the betterment of US citizens. Flying cars, cybernetics, and genetic modification were some of the amazing accomplishments.

Working at Beta-Lab was considered as an honor, and highly esteemed. Families often pushed it on their kids, or the ads on TV did it for them. Being a worker there was like being a super hero.

Of course you cannot just sign up. The goverment accepts applications once every year, and they sort through for the best people. It is commonly assumed that only braniacs can get in, but no one really knows why Beta-Lab chooses who they choose.

You entered your application in on August 19th, and sure enough, you got a letter seven days after:



!....CONGRATULATIONS....!

Thank you for you application, valued American!

We thank you for your application, and we're happy to tell you that you have been accepted into the Beta-Lab family!

We understand this must be an exciting, however due to new policy, we ask that you keep this a surprise to your imediate family/relatives/friends until you arrive at Beta-Lab. As soon as you check in, your family will be notified about your amazing achievement!

In this letter you will find a ticket to Arizona. You will be picked up from the Beta-Lab Check-In zone at [..........]. You will be picked up by a bus at 6:30 sharp. Do not be late, or else you will be unable to join the Beta-Lab team.

While you wait, please take time to memorize the official Beta-Lab anthem:

~Oh Beta-Lab, Oh Beta-Lab. Thanks for blessing me! With this proud duty, and the work I must complete. Oh Beta-Lab, Oh Beta-Lab. Thanks for saving me! I promise to make everyone proud at home, you'll see.~

"State of the art tools for state of the art workers!"
- Co-Founder Of Beta-Lab Henry Halowae

Here at Beta-Lab, the safety and protection of our staff is top priority. Plexy glass, high-tech cameras and robots patrol the facility at every waking moment, and if by chance there is a medical emergency, our competent and highly trained medical team can fix any injury from a simple cut to nerological damage or fracturing. We take pride in the wonders that we have brought to the modern world, and it shows in our performance.

With new ways of collecting oil, we're able to refine oil and double the amount we get. And with new ways to power electronics, we only need a fraction of what we collect every year. Our solar, electronic, and steam engines hammer away day at night to keeping our underground lab and living space bright and happy. With new Holotec technology, we're able to create enviroments that feels, smell, and act just like home. Being homesick has never been better!

Our security team is armed with the latest technology capable of stunning targets, or melting them! Danger in Beta-Lab is at a minimum. Thanks to the government, we're graciously provided with some of the most skilled CIA veterens, and nothing can get passed them without a proper uniform and an ID card. We're also happy to announce the wonders of botany, and how far we've advanced Hydroponics. Botanists are able to grow plants underground, and there are quite a few parks that are available to the puplic. With fresh air from above, and below, having lungs has never been better!

Did we forget to mention our amazing Engineers who work day and night to keep the facility happy. You know what they say, a stable electrical coil system is a happy stable electrical coil system! Oh, and how could we forget about our incredible Research team who create new vigors and items for the other sectors. The most valued member of the Beta-Lab family! Though, we don't favor people here! So don't worry if you slave away at Robotics, the final section of Beta-Lab. They work on creating new robots to fit our every need, and give us a hand where others lack. With their constant work, we're able to create machines that can withstand incredible heats, land amazing falls, and fly high above the sky and into the stars!

Everyone here at Beta-Lab is valued, and we hope you feel the same!

Beta-Lab, where: "If the best is all you've got, you'll do just fine here!"

The Beta-Lab Lore: Documents, Notes, History, and What You Know Thus Far

History Of Beta-Lab:

The Beginning

The idea of Beta-Lab was presented to the U.S. Government in 2018 during the brew and rumors of another World War. The idea originally had been to "engineer war machines", but the funding ended up being too hefty for a project that seemed nearly impossible. So the idea was slipped under the table, forgotten and a mystery to the public. That was until 2021 when a close call occurred between European Navy ships and American subs. The politicians were biting their nails off at this point, and the founder of Beta-Lab, Benny Shultz, decided to step in and remind them of their choice. Desperately and with wreckless abandon, the Congress caved and Beta-Lab began construction.

The First Years

After the completion of the construction, the facility was finished in late 2022. During the construction teams were already being assembled compiled of the most brilliant minds, (Or toughest CIA agents.) that money could buy. Those who did not want to join, declined the offer or money, were then put into drafts and eventually forced to work at Beta-Lab or face Federal charges. By the end of 2022, Beta-Lab had all sectors completely functional with up to date technology. From this point on, Beta-Lab would grow into a massive facility containing over 22,000 people.

I'd love to have you on the team, Forrest, and not to poke at your current state, but I think it's best if you sit this out. I need a dedicated team and I can't have off-and-on characters. But if you truely want to, you're more than welcome.
