Casual Villainry Excerpt – Welcome to the Event Horizon

Example entry for the End All project (Public)

Cycle (Since beginning of project): 0 

Subject: Placeholder I 

Hello, 

If you are reading this message then you are either myself or someone who has been chosen to participate in the End All project. This message serves two purposes; the first is simply as an example for how recorded entries to the End All project should be laid out. If this example is not followed, then the message in question is to be wiped from the system immediately. Even if you are only writing personal notes it is recommended to follow this layout to get into the habit of it. For this project to succeed, order must be maintained.  

Your name can be your real name or a preferred moniker, although the name you use must remain consistent between every message you make. Your position will be decided amongst yourselves, understand that a hierarchy is necessary for the sake of achieving optimal efficiency. Subject titles should always be numbered even if there is only one message in a thread. The numbering system used is detailed in the entry ‘Numerals I’. If you wish to make a personal message in response to a thread, put a dash and new numeral at the end of the subject (e.g. a personal message in response to this one should be titled Placeholder I-I).  

The second purpose of this message is as an official marker for the beginning of the End All project. You will not necessarily be working with people who come from places with the same measurements of date and time, thus the End All project will operate on its own scale. Only the cycle is to be recorded and the time it takes for a cycle to pass will be automatically calculated by each of your allocated systems. The only purpose for measuring cycles is to prevent any delusion that time is not passing, other measurements of time are to be considered arbitrary unless it is for the sake of maintaining a consistent sleep schedule. Creating specific dates is strictly forbidden as it promotes wasting days on unfounded celebration or ceremony. The only thing you will celebrate is the success of the project.  

I thank you for your co-operation in this endeavour and wish you success in your experiments.

Hello, 

Thank you again for participating in the End All project. This message should clear up the matter of where you are. It is important for you to become accustomed to your new home as soon as possible. It is likely you will spend the rest of your lives here, so make yourselves comfortable.  

This is the space station ‘event horizon’. It is a vessel created by the people of my own world, who have advanced far enough to master the art of intergalactic travel. I was the head designer and engineer of this particular craft and it has been specialised for experiments regarding the End All project. While I am the only pilot of the craft, I have put aside enough living space for approximately two-hundred people to live comfortably in the event horizon. This includes sleeping areas, lounge areas, bathrooms, kitchens etc. You will find that the ship can provide any basic necessities such as food or drink, your only concern should be work towards the End All project. There is no way to leave the event horizon unless you invent your own way. 

The only matter that overrules work on the End All project is if the event horizon is found by others of my race. If that happens then this mission has failed and only then should the ship’s self-destruct protocol be activated. Information about my race will be provided in the entry ‘Arahant I’. 

I thank you for your co-operation in this endeavour and wish you success in your experiments.

Subject: Introduction II 

Hello, 

Once you have taken some time to get used to your new surroundings, you will all need to understand what the End All project entails. One-hundred and ninety-six of you have been brought to this space station after extensive observation from myself. Collectively you are from various worlds and cultures but share two uniting factors; great intelligence and a scorn for life. You all have a darkness in your minds which wishes for your worlds to burn. The End All project is a coup d’etat against existence and its success will mean the destruction of the current physical universe.  

Had you not seen the laboratories which make up a majority of the event horizon you would think this madness. Until now, I have worked on this project alone and have created machines which can bend space, made infinite power sources and replicated black holes. However now, nearing the end of my life, I have yet to perfect a creation capable of universal scale destruction. That is why I have gathered all of your minds. I wish to pass the baton, in a sense, giving you the tools I created so that you may find better uses for them than I did.  

It will take time for you all to become used to the level of technology in the event horizon. If you are here, you were chosen because I believe you can come to understand and improve upon this technology. Take the time to learn and experiment, aid each other where I faltered alone. Then, bring about the end of this miserable existence.  

During the transfer process, each of your brains were chipped so that any language barriers will be a non-factor. Do not allow anything to stand in your way. Thank you for your co-operation and I wish you success in your experiments.

Subject: Introduction III 

Hello, 

This message is to help you gain a basic understanding of each laboratory on the ship, the sorts of experiments done and how they would translate to the End-All project.  

The first to cover is the speed chamber. If you imagine a ray of light which could decimate everything in its path travelling across the universe, it would still take an eternity for the universe to be destroyed. For this reason, it is necessary to perfect methods of destruction which are massively faster than light and the rate at which the universe expands so that its swift and absolute destruction can be achieved. Of course, whatever is travelling at this speed must be capable of continual movement and of surviving the tremendous velocity. This chamber can also be used to test spatial warping methods, such as usage of wormholes.  

The second is the event horizon chamber. This one is effectively useless, but I spent a lot of time here because it was the ship’s namesake. I thought that creating a black hole would be a huge step towards universal destruction before realising that there are many black holes in the universe and that making another would barely make a scratch in the grand scheme. Its primary purpose currently is to test if objects can be created that could survive contact with a black hole if it were a possibility.  

The third is
