Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

EPISODE 1
GULF OF MEXICO
-He who throws a stone in the market will hit his relative- Yoruba Proverb

PAGE 1

PANEL A

Middle of the Ocean. Sunset. The sea is calm, but it does not have its natural color: it's black. Dead fish appear sporadically on the surface of the water. It can be understood that the black colour is caused by some oil. A ship can be seen in the middle of the ocean.

PANEL B

Two sailors speaking.

SAILOR 1
The oil spill is much worse than what we had expected.

SAILOR 2
You're right. We cannot deal with it any longer, we have to contact the President, and convince him to send an EVOKE.

PANEL C
In the President's office.

PRESIDENT (at the phone..)
Uhm... Yeah. Oh my God!... I think you're right.

PAGE 2

PANEL A
A computer room with high-tech machines. A man is sitting in the middle of the room. It can be understood that he is Alchemy.

TEXT BOX 1
(President speaking through computer). We need your help with the...

PANEL B
Alchemy is smiling, and does not give signs of being worried or surprised.

ALCHEMY
... Oil spill. I know that.

PANEL C

PRESIDENT
How...?

ALCHEMY
I think you'll have to leave this to my team.

PAGE 3

PANEL A
A self-sufficient house in the countryside.

OFF PANEL:
I need your collaboration, Agent Giuseppe.

PANEL B

GIUSEPPE
Ok Alchemy... What? In the Gulf of Mexico?

ALCHEMY
Is that a problem?

PANEL C

GIUSEPPE
No, no problem. It's just that you'll have to give me a bit of time to move from Roletto (to the reader: you'll know where that is if you read my other blog posts) to the Gulf of Mexico.

PANEL D

ALCHEMY
Granted. Gather the rest of the team.

PAGE 3
At the airport. A group of EVOKE agents are preparing to leave.

PANEL A

GIUSEPPE
Nasty business, uh?

SPARKY
Yeah, this is going to be a tough one. Can you imagine? We'll have to stop the oil leaping out of the pump, and we will need to clean that spill that formed in the ocean. How big is it now? 1000, 1500...

PANEL B

GIUSEPPE
Almost 2000 km in diameter. The easy part will be to close the pump. Our robots will do everything we need. The hard part will be re-stabilizing the environment.

PANEL C

JIM
Do you think that those AC-130s will help by blowing oil-eating bacteria across the surface of the water?

PANEL D (close up on Giuseppe)

GIUSEPPE
They must. And they must be quick, as well. We cannot allow the spill to reach the coast.

TEXT-BOX

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Changes to Charleston

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zQ49AvLkhA2w.kfbaOGer-lQYIf you click my link to my custom map using Google My Maps you will see the addition of a Emergency Shelter to be used in case of a tidal wave or other event from the sea. Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
