The Power of MIRTHFURY - A Plague, Inc. AAR
« on: January 23, 2015, 07:34:38 AM »


The fury of nature’s silent, tiny serial killers – disease, not Gus – was about to be unleashed upon the world. Usually, simple things start worldwide pandemics. The Spanish Flu supposedly started in a troop staging area in France; AIDS might have started from monkey-man sexytimes; and The Great MetalDog Pun Pandemic started here in the GH forums. Yet, all of these could pale in comparison to any new, deadly strain of disease that would attack a human body from the inside out, causing its fragile systems to rot, bleed out, grow disgusting, pus-soaked blobs, and ultimately, junk to fall off.

This terrible disease, this rotter of skin and defiler of manhood, was festering in only a handful of unique individuals. As long as they remained apart, they would remain dormant, benign; the world would be safe. Unfortunately for the world (and fortunately for this fictional AAR), this perfect storm of humanity would come soon.

How did this start? The story begins simply enough. Mirth and Starfury, after years of bantering back and forth in the Forums here, decide to take a trip to Southeast Asia to partake of the local female talents. Promises of ‘boom boom five dollah’ in online literature was too much to pass up, especially when ‘no boom boom five thousand dollah’ was the cost of flying all the way the hell over there. Their US scratch would have to go a long way, and over there, it certainly would. The Mirth/Starfury Safari of Sensational Sensation Seeking would begin with high hopes, but end in disaster.

Southeast Asia was about to experience levels of depravity heretofore unknown except in parts of Maine and Flori-duh. Their infrastructure would be tested, their women defiled (but willingly of course), their men humbled and depressed, all from the swathe of rompin’ that these two left in their wake across the region.

This ‘perfect storm,’ though, was not of rain or cloud. It was of Mirth, and Starfury, and Southeast Asian chicks that had more mileage on them than a Tundra. The mix of massive orgyin’ and drinkin’ and frictionin’ would cause existing diseases to froth, tumble, and bubble within the pumpin’ nads and shared bottles of liquor, all falling into a massive black hole of disgusting couches and mattresses, cooking in the Southeast Asian humidity, creating a broth of STD that the world was ill prepared for.

It was time for the disease known as MirthFury to birth a vengeful wrath upon those that had wrought it. And a few billion other souls, too.



Could this disease be stemmed? Would the world succeed? Would Mirth, Starfury, and Southeast Asian whores be responsible for the downfall of the world, paving the way for intelligent dogs and turtles to take over? We shall see…

January 22, 2015. The height of summer in the southern hemisphere, though here in Southeast Asia, things are getting even hotter.



At this point, there are 13 people infected with MirthFury. It’s a fairly tame STD with little in the way of potency, though in this game, it’s easy to play God and manipulate these little bastards into doing your evil will.  So, too, does MirthFury suffer the slings and arrows of my outrageous puppeteering!



MirthFury will remain some minor, unknown affliction among the backstreet populations that have come into contact with The Dynamic Duo. In this close-packed community where people live like sardines, sloshing around in despicable and dirty surroundings, it would spread, albeit slowly.

However, it would only be a matter of time until MirthFury came into contact with someone with tastes involving four-legged domesticated friends.



MirthFury, thanks to a night of cheap liquor and cheaper morals, jumps from humans to livestock. They are now susceptible to infection, but as this disease came from humans, it is easily transferrable back. Rural areas, such as here in Southeast Asia, are particularly rich breeding grounds for this burgeoning infectious terror.



How do people even know if something is wrong (besides having associated with these two in the first place?) Well…one cannot blame those that started this for the escapades of those in their wake. The humans and animals are gonna do what they gotta do to get by once their lives are left empty and meaningless as Mirth and Starfury move on to greener, shaved pastures.

The first reports of some strange cysts growing around affected body parts start to roll in. MirthFury causes irritating, scratchy lumps that, when scratched, result in the pathogen spreading freely. A painful rash and blisters follows, making unwashed hands (and body parts) a fertile ground for passing it along.



On March 13, 2015, MirthFury has spread to some far corners of Southeast Asia (giving you a good idea as to where these two have traveled, but like dominoes, it only takes one ‘tap’ to start the STD train rolling). You can see from this map where the affected have started to travel around within the region.

Almost certainly, MirthFury will soon spread with abandon.

I always figured my coozehounding would eventually lead to the end of humanity.

While MirthFury makes its first tentative inroads into roads that were already inned by Mirth and Star, Mother Nature decided to be a bitch and evolve this STD into something a bit more contagious.



Broken pustules are literally soaked with this virulent strain of bacteria viral STD goodness, and when these pustules dry, bits can take to the air. MirthFury can now be transmitted by the very air. However, most likely MirthFury will be spread via the beast with two (or three) backs.



So far, Southeast Asia is totally unconcerned with MirthFury. It’s not even registering on any local medical radars, although it does now infect 255 people out of some 261-odd million. For MirthFury to survive, it must become more easily transmitted and not make people violently ill. Though seeing someone affected by MirthFury (specifically, their parts) is probably enough to make someone healthy barf their guts out.


(Fig. 1 – Lady parts after exposure to MirthFury.)



Four months have elapsed since Mirth and Starfury took their little STD sabbatical to Southeast Asia; they’ve long since returned to ‘Murica to focus on more important things, like more women and more drinking. Despite their proclivity to booze, no amount of alcohol will cure them of carrying the MirthFury virus. Hundreds are now infected (315 to be exact, all in Southeast Asia). To date, MirthFury has not jumped the border into other regions, but if it continues to spread and infect, this will be inevitable.



Since MirthFury and Mother Bitch Nature seem to sense its slowness, the STD grows in strength. People infected with it now start to feel a bit of a twitch in the back of their throat (insert your own joke here) and cough. MirthFury is now spreadable via coughing, making everything infected people cough on a potential infection spot.



By the end of April 2015, MirthFury has spread like wildfire as more people cough and don’t cover their mouths. Over 85,000 people now are infected in Southeast Asia, whereas at the beginning of the month barely 300 were infected! And, as we knew it might do eventually, MirthFury has spread to India thanks to a cow, a sex ring, and the lack of good hand sanitizer.

{hand raising} I'm seeing 163,370, in SE Asia, which is admittedly over 80,000, but...  :-\
