“This is Red Alert, reporting from the remains of crashed Cybertronian shuttle CC-III, originally a long-range scout ship originating in Crystal City. The shuttle has one apparent survivor, alleging to be lost Autobot Tasinia Trojan, the last living member of her unit. Initial findings support her claim, as do records sent to me by Kup from Iacon, but until this unusual robot’s identity can be irrefutably confirmed, I advise caution.
“Cuffs, until I completely investigation, I want you to keep an eye on this “Trojan,” in addition to your other security duties. Even if she is who she claims, she has been offline for quite some time and is unfamiliar with Earth protocol. You may assist Stormwind in acclimating her to local Autobot culture…

It seems we are once again in debt to Deadline, who seems to be the only active member of this unit capable of bringing us leads on our alien invaders. Deadline, I want Psych-out and you to drug and torture our guest – whatever you have to do – and make sure there’s nothing left in his head that might be of use to us that he’s too stupid to be aware of. When you’re finished with him feel free to feed him to Temera or whatever else you like.
Speaking of Temera – Tomahawk, I want you to take Temera back to the Witwickys’ and get a lead to track this “Goldbug” to wherever it went. If Spike’s brother gives you any trouble, bring him in for leverage against Spike, or just kill him if it’s …
Cyclonus appears on-screen, from his command post in Darkmount. In his deep, commanding voice, he records the following:
“Lord Megatron, if it pleases you, I would like to send Scourge to Earth to stalk and capture Alpha Trion. Trion has been a thorn in our side for some time, and his imprisonment and torture would provide incalculable intelligence data, in addition to morale blow Trion’s public execution will be to the Autobots. Scourge is uniquely qualified to track and detain him, especially while Trion is away from his home element.
“Scourge, report to me at once for immediate deployment, with Megatron’s leave.
“That is all. Cyclonus out.”
The screen goes dark.
Last night I stayed home and schedule another MUX night, since the MUX was down Monday. Unfortunately, by Thursday we still hadn’t gotten out DB back from aerosar.net, so at first we MUX exiles met up at temporary refuges set up by helpful players, until we realized our MUX was still set up at its old location at spodzone.com. Its DB was out of date and missing anything we’ve added in the last six months, but it had the basic grid and characters so we were happy.
Dean logged on and we all welcomed him back to the MUX (and the country!) and then Bludd and I rebuild a tiny mirror universe so we could continue the Shattered Glass TP while we waited to get our new DB back. I got to play a stirring scene of Father Cobra welcoming Bludd to Cob…
For now, until aerosar.net comes back up, we're back at our old address: tfu.spodzone.com 1976. If you need a new password (it's the old site and things are months old), just log on as a guest and page Stormwind or me.
Updates will be posted to MUX Status and the TFUMUX Twitter stream when we know more.
