AKA The Twelve Days of Dwickmas.

In December 2190, the shantytowns of old Nos Astra, which for the last three years had been centred on One Dwickcast Tower - abode of low-brow galactic HV entertainment - erupted into chaos and civic unrest following reports of the death of Jorgal Dwick.

A very serious situation.

Background Notes

Think of this arc as the equivalent to a glut of sugary junk food over the Christmas period. CDN mixes some degree of comedy with character drama, world-building and serious exploration of the Mass Effect setting. For the Christmas period, some degree of restraint has temporarily been set aside, and the comedy elements have taken centre stage. Just as the proper balanced diet returns after the holiday, so is the usual atmosphere of the boards not quite this zany. ;)
