An instance of RPC-XXX, docked on the Valetta Waterfront in Malta.

Item #: RPC-XXX

Object Class: Gamma

Containment Procedures: Primary containment procedures for RPC-XXX are focused on identifying the locations where instances of RPC-XXX are scheduled to appear and promptly responding to these appearances. Members of MST Charlie-37 'Land Lubbers' are to monitor any major ports known to host instances of RPC-XXX in case of a manifestation. All members of MST-Charlie-17 must undergo resistance training to mind-altering anomalous effects.

Should an instance of RPC-XXX manifest at a port monitored by the Authority, MST-Charlie-37 is to immediately be dispatched towards the area. Authority personnel are instructed to prevent all civilian access into instances of RPC-XXX through any means necessary.

During periods in which examination of an instance of RPC-XXX is required, three D-Class personnel are to be allowed to enter the instance equipped with audio and video recording supplies for the purpose of logging and studying events that take place to obtain a better understanding of the nature of RPC-XXX instances.

Immediately after passengers disembark an instance of RPC-XXX, Authority agents stationed at the port must immediately work to retrieve all affected individuals and administer Class-B amnestics to any passengers departing the instance.

Item Description: RPC-XXX is the designation for a series of ships owned by the "Wonderland Cruise Company". Instances of RPC-XXX are known to primarily resemble standard-sized cruise ships owned by companies such as Carnival, Disney, and Royal Caribbean, with a typical weight of 200 tons, an average length of 360 meters in length, and a breadth of 47 meters.

The anomalous properties of RPC-XXX begin to activate when an instance will manifest docked at any major port. These instances are never seen approaching the port from a distance or performing standard docking procedures. Once manifested, a standard boarding deck will appear enabling passengers to enter the instance of RPC-XXX.

While an instance of RPC-XXX is docked, any civilians within a ten-mile radius will feel a strong compulsion to board the instance. Those affected will begin to move towards RPC-XXX's location and attempt to enter the instance through a boarding ramp leading to the ship's hull. If those affected by RPC-XXX's mental influence are restrained or otherwise blocked from moving towards the instance, they will attempt to forcibly move obstacles in their way. In extreme cases, civilians affected by RPC-XXX will attempt to convince or force other civilians to board the instance. When questioned, those affected by RPC-XXX will often state they 'are taking a relaxing vacation' or 'I don't want to miss my cruise' when confronted about their behavior and desire to board the instance.

Once an instance of RPC-XXX has gathered an appropriate number of passengers (Authority records report a current minimum of 20 passengers and a maximum of 300), the instance will begin to depart the port it was docked at and begin drifting out to sea. To date, no instance of RPC-XXX has successfully been prevented from leaving a port (instances will simply navigate or force their way through Authority blockades). Once an instance of RPC-XXX departs a port, it will begin to move through the ocean with no discernable pattern while carrying its passengers. Voyages of RPC-XXX typically last approximately two weeks, during which passengers have been seen partaking in 'cruise activities' that tend to be anomalous in nature.

While no staff or crew have been reported on board instances of RPC-XXX, each instance
