The Elo Game Begins

Dear Halea,


    How long has it been now, since we landed on Aregeon? Since Earth’s ecosystems crumbled? Since the Milky Way was all but destroyed? Thirteen years? It seems like so much longer. Why did you have to stay with that suicidal group of yours? You can’t save Earth! It’s gone, and it’s Victor Elo’s fault!

 Aregeon is so much different from Earth, there is almost no comparison. The years here consist of only twenty-six days and the days are as long as four days are back on Earth. Winter, spring, summer, and fall all pass in one Aregeon day. The dates are hard to understand, much more so to write; the day is represented by one of our twenty-six letter followed by this mark:~ and an a, b, c, or d to represent which season was passing in the day, then the number of trils from when we left Earth and how many years have passed in that tril.

The seasons change so quickly because of the four small stars that circle this planet, the one known as A is the hottest and the weakest is known as C. The one standing for fall is B and spring is D.

Age works the same though. Instead of saying however many years old you are one would say however many trils. A tril is a period of three Aregeon years and the equivalent of one earth year.

This planet is perfectly rounded like earth but there is no water. The native humans get their water from tablets of solidified moisture of Aregeon’s air that never condenses; it’s always there drifting about in the wind.

There are merely two settled cities on Aregeon, you know how few had the chance to escape on those megaships. The first and largest is where everyone lives and works, isolated from the world.

 The second is like a children’s boot camp; Elo has this insane theory that those born on Aregeon or having been very young upon arrival have a better chance of finding ways for humanity to adapt and survive the environment. He brain washed children’s parents into thinking it’s what is best for them and has over a thousand kids 16 or under in his ‘academy’ where he has his officials train them to the extreme, mentally and physically.

Every year he carts of a group of them and puts them through a series of vigorous test that he calls ‘the Elo game’ to try to find some capable of carrying out his dirty work.

He has yet to find the right group.

I know you wanted to stay on Earth, Halea, but I want you to be here, to help me. Your my big sister, I need you, and I have no idea if you’ll get this letter or any of the others I sent to you through the many attempted rescue missions Elo has sent to Earth.

                                            Your brother,


                                   Official of Victor Elo

thanks so much! it really means allot to me!
Oh my God... Earth dies, people evacuate the planet and settle another. Crazy person takes control and throws up a dystopian society. I FREAKING LOVE IT. I am a huge sci fi fan and love reading what people can create. I would love to hear more of this place. Are the animals different, I guess they would have to be, are there any natives? How old is the planet? How far is it from Earth? So many questions... 0.O Write more please.

Dark Butterfly, I am intrigued by the picture you're painting here, the first paragraph set the scene nicely and immediately put me in the right frame of mind, but reading on it felt like a lot of information all at once. Perhaps there is a way to simply allude to teasers for some of this info, just give us a little bit at first - what we need to be carried along in the beginning before telling us all of the differences between Earth and Aregeon, right now it feels more like you're listing what it is you want us to know instead of having it come to life perhaps through some character interaction or some flashbacks...that said I think you're doing an amazing job and your writing is clear, I wish I'd had the courage to share my work when I was your age!
