IDO Quarantine Zone Tau, Los Angeles, CA — Over the last few months there have been several reported cases of Virtue’s Last Reward, also known more commonly as “VLR.” Fortunately they have been contained, but our analysts reluctantly inform us that this is merely the calm before the storm. Our projections show an impending unavoidable outbreak sometime around the end of October.
Although we have managed to produce an inoculation device and accompanying serum, our supply of both is severely limited, and our normal avenues of distribution are insufficient. As such, we have taken the unprecedented step of partnering with shopping service Amazon.com to distribute these devices. Our efforts to synthesize a cure have been severely hampered by a lack of individuals who are naturally immune to the disease. To this end, all persons receiving an inoculation device will be expected to participate in the treatment effort: Each device will be shipped with a sample of the VLR strain. Instructions for inoculation and subsequent infection will be included with each packet. Once delivery is confirmed, an IDO official will follow up within the week to collect the modified antibodies, so haste is advised. Rest assured that our extensive testing has shown the inoculation to have nearly a 50% success rate. Participation in this program is strictly voluntary, but please keep in mind that current supplies are extremely limited.
Note: Once the serum has been injected, the inoculation device can also be used as a functioning wristwatch.
As always, it is wise to be on the lookout for possible VLR infection. Memorize the following list of symptoms—the life they save could be your own.
Any suspected cases should be immediately directed to IDO Processing Center Upsilon, located in the Aksys Games Localization offices.
