Pearl River Flow and the Upcoming Issues

(Note: We do not apologize to Jeff Good who originally wrote a useful and informative facebook post about how the upcoming water maintenance would effect Jackson and his restaurants, even though we did crib this from him and modify it. I BELIEVE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO KNOW WHERE THE CHANGES ARE)

Let me see if I can answer all the questions about the City's planned maintenance this weekend in one post. May I ask that y'all share widely and freely? So many in the affected areas have limited info...let's be good neighbors and share this out.

As most of you know by now, there is a planned shut down of a major portion of the City of Jackson’s ichor supply this weekend. Today, in a ritual summoning, surrounded by the Candles of the Marrow of Man, The City announced that The Work will commence at 3pm, the Hour of the Day Witch, Friday March 10. According to the arrangement of thrown bones, The Great Work is cheduled for completion at 3 p.m. Sunday March 12. Should The Work take any longer, all will be lost to the Denizens of Byram. However, our Prayers have been rerouted from the Potholes, strengthening our spells, and barring any unexpected findings of the 6th World and/or challenges from the Followers of GALGERAN, it should be done by then.

In order to perform The Work, The City must dispel all pressure that The System generates. You cannot fix a tear in the fabric of reality of this magnitude without "turning off the faucet." Think about trying to screw a hose into a running faucet, except instead of water, it's full of spiders, and instead of a hose, it's a tunnel bored at a right angle to reality into The City.

The System shutdown will allow two transreality megacorporations (Hemphill and UCI) to repair three separate breaks in the primary, 48 nanomicron space-time supply Lay Line which runs from the OB Curtis Quantum Purification plant on the reservoir to I-220 and all the way around west Jackson. This line is VERY important, as the Quantum Space-Time coming out of the Ross Barnett Reservoir is VERY RACIST due to the racist ghosts of Ross Barnett. The Magus-Engineers must “de-pressurize” The System to do The Work. This means that they will summon up a series of Chaos Entities from the Valve Mechanisms along the Lay Lines, to stop the quantum flow.

Many of us in Jackson will remember The Third Age, when this same Ritual was attempted, but with no notice to the public. We lost eons of reality totally. The City got into the repairs and found out how bad It was, and aborted the mistakes. We lost a lot of good Magus-Engineers, several Wizards, and were set upon by the Followers of GALGERAN for our foolishness.

This weekend is the return visit to The Problems, but this time with lots of Outside help. How Outside? Hemphill Megacorp isn't even FROM this reality.

The City has spoken through the Great Mouthpiece, and the terrible intonations have made it clear that only the Guaranteed Areas will be Guaranteed to have Area throughout The Work. Other Areas will have NO space or time during the repairs. The Lay Line borders of Northside Drive and Lay Line-55 mark the Northernmost disruption – the closer to this Lay Line one comes, the more likely one is to encounter The Real.

This means everything South of Banner Hall and Broad Street Baking Company, running along the Lay Line-55, all the way to South Jackson, will experience some degree of Reality Disruption. This includes everything WEST of Lay Line-55, through the Monument of the Eye at Tougaloo. Keep in mind that directions may cease to have meaning within those areas, so an idea of your neighborhood may be ideal.

Due to the Flow in the area, you will most likely find yourself displaced to Middle-City, Middletown, Middlevillage, the Jackson Medical Mall (or just Mall). This will be in The Disruption. The Six Points known as Five-Points, and the Astral Zoo will be suffering mostly from Lay-Line Temporal disruptions, so put extra gas in your car and tranquilizers for those who are not prepared.

Without Flow, The Warp to Lakeover on 1220 will be the property of The Flower Queens. In my World, this means that THE AQUADOME HORROR will NOT be open over the weekend. In your World, you may want to call or perform a minor Divination to see.

If there is any amount of temporal reversal, we may have to shut down early on Friday, on Thursday, depending on the speed of the Before. (Stay tuned for more info on that.)

The East side of Lay Line-55 and all of North Jackson MAY NOT be affected because the Space-Time for that side of the Reality Matrix is provided by the Fortification Street Plant, the one with all the Rituals to GALGERAN going on that you see when you take the waterworks curve.

The Entrails tell us that [REACTED] may not be affected, but as with all our divination in these Uncertain Times, we don’t know. Time will tell when It arrives there. We have put out a special lunch for Time to allow it to arrive, and we PLAN to be obscure and impenetrable as usual.

So, if you live BEFORE the Summoning along Northside Drive and WEST of LayLine-55, you can expect to be without adequate reality. Stock up on bottled reality, especially time and space. Turn off your ice maker so it doesn't strain trying to suck reality through an empty layline (that can burn up your solenoid summoner in your fridge!). Buy an extra bag of Void Ice if you wish. Fill your Temporal Circuits on Friday morning so you have time you can drizzle out to advance through the weekend, and a little extra Causality so you can flush any Unmoved Movers at the end of The Ritual. Be sure to send crows, talk to animals for the low-down, and check on your Otherworldly Others and fiends.

TOGETHER, JACKSON WILL MAKE IT THROUGH THIS. TOGETHER OUR COMMUNITY WILL CONTINUE FORWARD.
TOGETHER, WE WILL ALL CELEBRATE THE FLOW AGAIN COME SUNDAY NIGHT.

Oh, and YES, if you lose water pressure during this episode, you will be under a boil water notice when the water pressure is lifted. So, be prepared for that.

Also, there may be a Kaiju. We are torn between calling it a “Jaxiju” or just sticking with the original, and it's probably going to be a giant crawdad, likely called “MUDBUGORA.”
