Challenge #03949-J297: Odd Tools

The Duke It Out program is installed on any ship, or station, VR that has Pax Humanis members on it. The rooms always are well padded with self-repairing material and the VR is battle-tested equipment, just in case.

It's helped them quite a bit to vent frustrations. -- Anon Guest

[AN: Duke It Out is 100% virtuality. The body is kept mostly still during the experience. BUT perhaps some folk can wriggle around more than the usual sort.]

When all was said and done, the virtuality program named Duke It Out was both an interesting therapy tool and a very curious diagnostic. Within the program, the 'player' could create and then beat literally anything to pieces without physical harm to anything real.

Most humans emerged blinking into reality with an air of relief and much better attitude to life in general. As well as their attitude towards their place, specifically.

Challenge #03472-I184: Taken Away From it All

The human is a Virtual Reality addict. Why? Because real life had become just too painful to face anymore. -- Anon Guest

It was the one thing she wanted to hurry for. After a tedious day of thankless, repetitious, endless toil, Mayra could take her day's wages, buy the cheapest meal she could get, and spend the rest of her resting hours in a Booth.

Like most of the Booths in Centua City, the actual facilities were filthy, falling apart, and had

Challenge #01703-D242: Choose Your Face

Having avatars be cool things can lead to odd circumstances:

Our best diplomat is a KHORNE BERSERKER! Our sane and reasonable authority figure is a SITH LORD! And our moral compass is PSYCHO MANTIS! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!

(Person saying this has a Dalek avatar...)

(Now imagine this, not on a normal forum where the avatar is a small image, but in an immersive virtual environment) -- RecklessPrudence

People get the wrong impression about Greater Deregulation South-Southwest. First,
