8P-RYL Fuel Production Horror at Remote Tourist Resort
Shocking reports are coming out of a remote tourist destination located on an island on the third planet of the RYK-VK system. The resort, touted as an idyllic natural beauty spot with volcanically heated outdoor pools, attracts visitors from afar, lured by the promise of rejuvenation from long soaks in its blue lagoons.
However, following the disappearance of several tourists, undercover investigations have revealed the possibility that the resort is responsible for the disappearances.
The entire island is powered by a fuel processing plant located close to the resort. The fuel source produced there is designated 8P-RYL and has long been thought to be extracted from the volcanically active substrate which also heats the resort. However, samples taken from the pools frequented by tourists have proven to contain a biological dissolving agent and an anaesthetic. Whether these are naturally occurring or have been deliberately added is the subject of much discussion.
Experts are speculating that even short-term exposure to the water in the pools, as often is the case with tourists, may cause the completely painless process of triggered epidermal apoptosis, effectively causing parts of the victim to melt into the water. Evidence of degenerated human matter was discovered at the bottom of the pools which supports this theory.
Professor Harpa, a consultant biochemist, read the reports and stated, “In most cases, exposure would simply act as an exfoliant, resulting in a harmless amount of biological matter to be harvested from swimmers. Continued immersion might cause flesh to begin to form a slurry and slough off. However, if an individual were to remain exposed for a long enough period of time, it would be possible for them to be almost completely dissolved. If sedated or otherwise unconscious they may never be aware of the process until it was too late.”
A local man, who wished to remain anonymous, said, “There have been rumours for a long time, but nothing has ever been proved. Some say that nanites in the water collect the dissolved tissue and take it to the [fuel processing] plant to be converted into energy.” He added, “It makes you frightened to turn the lights on, in case it’s powered by people!”
Both the tourist resort and the power facility have close affiliations with the sinisterly named Crowd Control Productions organisation, one of the most influential local corporations. The corporation has thus far refused to comment. Investigations are ongoing.
Addendum: An individual known as CCP Sisyphus, a spokesman for Crowd Control Productions, has since publicly stated, “Nothing to see here. Move along, move along. These are not the biofuels you are looking for.”
All investigations have now been halted whilst clarification on which biofuels we are looking for is ascertained.
