Participant In Entropia
Open Sesame at Port Atlantis
It had been a fairly routine last month or so on Calypso, with a few hunting and mining runs here and there for average returns, in between doing essential repairs and other tasks. These and other things were going through my head, but it was getting late, so I snapped out of it and alighted onto the teleporter to get to Port Atlantis to do another recruitment stint for Entropia News Network.
Re-materialising in the main square at Port Atlantis a few seconds later, I can't help notice that the entrance to a small outbuilding adjoining two of the perimeter walls is wide open. For years the doors had been closed, so this was a mystery. Maybe not a big one, perhaps not that interesting to many, but it stuck out like a sore thumb to me.
I realize that this may not have been anything new to others that were milling around there, as I had no idea as to the exact number of days the doors had been open, but it can't have been that many, as I had been to Atlantis a few times during the last two weeks or so. Whichever, why all of a sudden were the doors open?
I had looked all around inside, not that there was anything in there. It was just a vacant, empty space, partially lit due to a small gap between the roof and one of the walls with no apparent purpose or function. Now, I had thought for years, that it was some sort of power relay or some other electrical installation. I had no idea there was absolutely nothing in there.
Maybe something was stored here and it had been moved somewhere and they had forgotten to close the door. Or perhaps it had always been empty and the owners had just decided to advertise it to potential future investors. Who knows?
