At least 14,000,000 km of snow and ice sheets. The most inhospitable continent on this planet, with temperatures growing as low as -50°C on average each year. What life there is here has carefully evolved to survive such a climate; it is abundantly clear that this is not a place that humans can hope to easily exist.
Truly, by our standards, this is the end of the Earth.
Yet still, humanity has managed to find a foothold on this most inhospitable of continents, in the form of scientific research bases and outposts scattered across it. Delving into the mysteries that frozen continent holds, they brave the dangerous elements and dark winter months in the name of scientific progress and discovery.
And one such mystery is about to be revealed.
At the remote Lake-Atwood Antarctic Research Station, a discovery has been made, something the director of the station claims will change the world. Powerful winds and snow-storms have led to the facility losing contact with the outside world before further information could be relayed.
Determined to reach the station and bring back whatever it is has been discovered there, Doctor Randolph Dyer, a gifted British scientist and one of the directors of the Lake-Atwood Station, puts together a team of scientists and explorers to assist him in getting to the station and helping him bring it back into contact with the outside world.
You are one of those chosen for this team.
Little do you know what awaits you out in the frozen wastes of Antarctica...

I have to visit a wedding venue at 10am on Monday, so if I'm tired I may make a horrible mistake and doom the wedding to failure and Tegan will leave me and then I'll cut myself from loneliness and murder my parents.
...I somehow had it in my head that today was Sunday. Welp.
In that case, yeah, I'd be willing to run it tonight in the interests of making sure Asmo's awake as he gets dragged around wedding venues. Got to make sure he's fully awake so he suffers all the more, and what-not.
