Emergency Procedure "Pizzicato"

GOC Internal Memo: Procedure Pizzicato

To Be Executed In Case Of: Massive Known Threat Entity (KTE) and Unknown Threat Entity (UTE) Emergence


Procedure Pizzicato is the final Emergency Response Procedure, to be executed in case of Threat Entity Emergence at a massive level. Procedure Pizzicato is to be executed in the following instances.

  • Commencement of any Eschatalogical Event Sequence past the Point of No Return (PNR)
  • Failure by rival agency to maintain containment of their own TEs.
  • Emergence on a worldwide scale of a large number of TEs, past the Disavowment Threshold.

Note that execution of Procedure Pizzicato will, by necessity, result in an irreversible Second Mission (Concealment) failure in order to allow for a First Mission (Survival) success. Third Mission (Protection) goals are secondary: normal avoidance of civilian casualties is to be second priority to maintaining Minimum Repopulation Margin among the survivors.
