This contains the compiled and edited log of the 2008 Mary Sue Invasion role-play, which took place between April 20 and 24 on the PPC Posting Board (set April 17 in-universe). The post titles from the original thread are archived here. Part 1 also includes the very end of the Macrovirus Epidemic, which was role-played starting on April 17 (set April 8-16 in-universe). Sadly, the original RP was lost.
The log has been given a light editing treatment to correct spelling errors, spacing and paragraphing errors, incorrect capitalization, etc. To improve the flow (such as it is) and aid comprehension, a few posts have been merged with others by the same author or placed in a different order from that in which they originally appeared. The parts are in approximate chronological order, and I have added helper links and sometimes a line of explanation in places where one string mentions an event that happened in a different string. It is possible to read the log straight through using the site's standard back/next navigation or to jump around using the helper links.
