Glorious Beckettville Moments

For your entertainment, we have provided a few exciting events from Beckettville’s history below! If you wish to learn more, please visit our Loyalty Pavilion, open weekdays from 9am-2pm.

Our Blessed Beckett Family

by Internet Archive Book Images
  Our founding family discovered this lovely land due to local rumors of healing mineral springs. By the graces of Dolōrem, our land was bursting with small pools of cold, therapeutic water. The Becketts discovered the restorative properties these springs could hold and quickly established Beckettville on the spot! As the population and demand grew, so did our community. By the 1900's, our town had become a well-established, miniature city with a promising future in the new millennium. With the birth of Orion, the company that would become our beloved Hiram Beckett Company, the Becketts would soon extend their grasp on the market world-wide.


Exhibition for a More Unified Tomorrow

by Théâtre National de Chaillot
As a child, James Beckett attended the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. He was so inspired by the intercontinental inventions that he began pushing his father Edwin to progress their company into future technology. When James took over and turned the company into Orion Enterprises, he finally had the chance to push forward his own fair. Although not an officially sanctioned World Expo, the “Exhibition for a More Unified Tomorrow” was held during the spring of 1937 in our great city.   Hosted in our beautiful Loyalty Pavilion, the entire exhibition was dedicated to the current and upcoming technologies from Orion Enterprises, as well as the far-reaching ideas coming from the company’s brightest minds. Known for their unprecedented research into large-scale workforce management, they had also been the pioneers of a growing interest in biological data collection.

Our Prophet Became Our Savior

  One of the darkest and brightest days in our history, The Extinction Event resulted in the loss of over 99% of the human population. Despite the turmoil, Beckettville stood strong as the sole surviving city during the decimation. Our neighbors were taken by the mist and ooze, but our great Dolōrem protected our citizens and our prophet provided a path to a pure utopia.
We have nothing to fear. Our benevolent Dolōrem will clear the way for those accepting of his mark. Come and receive your blessing from the Sacred Stamp of Supplication and be saved.
— Hiram Beckett


Celebrating Our First Festival

It’s no secret that our prophet is an ingenious man. Six months after the Extinction Event, Hiram Beckett decided we needed to celebrate the great advancements our civilization had made in such a short amount of time. We are an incredible city and we deserved a phenomenal party to sing the praises of our prophet and our deity!
  After gathering at Beckett Park for food and drink (graciously donated by The Hiram Beckett Company) our citizens became the entertainment for the rest of the community! All manner of music, dance, and games were played by different groups of incredibly talented individuals, eventually culminating in a massive parade up Main Street and over onto Maurice Boulevard until the group began to break up around Beckett Suites. As this was the end of the refugee’s grace period, many community members helped any remaining refugees move their things from the hotel and into their apartments before the end of the night, causing a rapid dispersion of our citizens back to their homes satiated.
