The Story

The North Carolina Zoo-topia Park is located in in the Uwharrie Mountains near the geographic centre of the state.

At over 4,000 acres, it is the largest walk-through Zoo in the world.

In the centre of large areas of Natural forest, jungle environments, rolling mountains and white water rivers, you will also find cutting edge genetics labs and Veterinary facilities.

The Zoo is also used as a university for the best and brightest zoologists in the world, and acceptance is extremely limited and highly prized by academics.

Zoo-topia has over 1600 animals from more than 250 species primarily representing Africa and North America.

The zoo is open 350 days a year and receives more than 700,000 visitors annually.

However several years ago everything went terribly terribly wrong…

A visiting Professor who was teaching at the University, had lied about his identity, and was not the man he was impersonating.

This imposter was a criminal, known as Dr Paul Matheson, AKA “The Mangler”, who has been on the run from the F.B.I (and several other International crime agencies) since 2007.

Matheson had escaped apprehension by law enforcement agencies for the last few years, usually being one step ahead of the investigators.

He often avoided capture by assuming the identity of travelling teachers and academics who were later found murdered.

This provided the perfect cover for taking students on academic field trips.

Once in a remote area he would kidnap them, and begin using them as test subjects for his continued bizarre research known as the “Arachnoform” project.

The “Arachnoform” research the Dr is famous (or perhaps infamous is the correct word) involves genetic splicing, combining DNA from a rare spider breed he found in Africa and human D.N.A.

The creatures created by this mix, were both magnificent and monstrous.

Six feet tall, able to rapidly heal from extreme wounds, and with strength hundreds of times that of a human.

However despite being extremely loyal to their creator, most have exhibited great hostility to any outside forces that have encountered them, and are known to violently protect their environment.

The creatures are extremely valuable despite the dangers associated with them, and would be worth billions to several illegal bioweapon research groups operating presently.

Since the first recorded sighting, the international black market has offered a continued bounty to anyone who can bring in a live sample of one of the creatures or a fertilised egg.

And so it was unknown to any one at the Park, the Dr had infiltrated Zoo-topia.

Using one of the remote areas not assessable to the public, he began experiments on several members of the parks’ staff.

The Director of the park managed to keep the disappearance of the missing staff from the media for several weeks.

He had no desire to cause a publicity nightmare, so the investigations were privately authorised to find out what happened.

When a guest was finally abducted, the Zoo was closed down temporarily, under the guise of maintenance.

Documents were falsified as evidence to the police that the missing staff members and customer had left the park safe and sound.

In a desperate bid to keep what had transpired from the media or the police, the Director chose to call in help from several illegal channels rather than contact the authorities.

Big game hunters, mercenaries, smugglers and black market poachers.

All were hired and paid to track down the Dr and the creatures and to capture them alive.

They failed, Several of them died in the process.

That part of the park was sealed off completely from the rest of Zoo-topia, ringed already by electrical fences and high concrete walls.

The half mile enclosure the Dr had been working in was put under a complete lock down.

Dr Matherson (who the surviving Hunters discovered had already made his escape) is still on the run and his whereabouts are presently unknown.

It is now several years later, and according to information gained from Matherson’s abandoned research, the creatures in the quarantined zone have started to breed and produce clusters of eggs…

The Director, who at this stage has uncovered the truth, decided that he could get rich from the fruits of the Drs handiwork.

He contacted the black market buyers and arranged once a year to supply the egg samples they so desperately wanted.

But getting them was always going to be tricky…

A three million dollar reward has been offered by the zoo Director to several teams of hunters, should they be willing to enter the enclosure and retrieve a fertilised egg.

Of course by the very illegal nature of the entire enterprise, selection of candidates for this task has been restricted.

Only the criminal elements and mercenaries (those who can be trusted to keep quiet) have been notified about the bounty.

As such the groups entering the compound are as cut throat and deadly as the creatures within.

With so much money at stake and that area of park closed to the prying eyes of the world, several of the groups that have been hired have realise their odds would vastly improve, if anything “unfortunate” were to happen to their competitors during the hunt….

What awaits them in Zoo-topia Park?, and do they stand a chance against creatures that have so aggressively protected there habitat before?
