Black Camp
« on: December 03, 2013, 03:20:23 PM »
Your head is in pain.  You're body's not too hot either, but your head is what's really the issue here.  You can barely see straight.  And who turned off the lights?  Oh, you did.  Maybe you should open your eyes.

Well, that didn't help.  Any of your problems, really.  It's just as pitch black out, your head's pounding just as hard, and your entire being hasn't stopped being sore.  So what's going exactly?  Wouldn't it be great if you knew?  Wouldn't it be even better if you knew how you even got here?  Alas, your memories appear to be in as many shambles as the rest of you.

With a groan you slowly stand up and survey what of your surroundings you can.  You can see yourself, and that's about it.  You can't really tell where the light's coming from though.  There doesn't appear to be a sun or moon here.  Or even stars.  Honestly, you aren't even sure if where you are makes sense.  It feels like you're walking on some sort of ground, but it looks like you're floating in some sort of black void.

A groan emerges from behind you.  You spin around, a mistake in your current condition, and see someone else struggling to their feet.  Maybe they know what's going on?

"Hello?" I call out tentatively. "Do you know where we are?"

"What?  God, who are you?  I can't remember anything."  Louise takes a few steps around, trying to orient herself.  She might be able to walk off this pain, but it feels like she was hit by a truck.  "Jeez, it feels like I was hit by a truck." 

She reaches her arms out to try and see if she can find any sort of wall or boundary.

I crack various stiff joints. "My name's Becca, and I can't remember anything, either."

I try covering my eyes, letting them adjust to the darkness, and then taking my hand away, hoping to get a better sense of our surroundings.

You have a very good sense of your surrounding.  Your surroundings are utterly empty.

"Louise" the girl replies with a french flair.  That is, however, her only flourish as she looks around.  "Well, We cannot just stand here.  Come on.  We should look for something."

"Loise, nice to meet you. Hrm..."

I look around critically. "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."

I shrug. "Oh, well. Let's just go, then."

I pick a direction at random and walk in it.

After about 10 minutes of walking in what you certainly hope is a single direction, you find yourself in an area that is completely and utterly the same as everywhere else you've been.  A pitch black, utterly featureless... wait, what's that?  Its so faint your eyes might be playing tricks on you, but there appears to be a light off in the distance.

"Hey, Loise!" I call over my shoulder. "Either I'm crazy, or I think I see something!"

Crazy...shit!

I check to see if I'm wearing my backpack. I'm not.

"Fuck."

Louise increases her pace.  "Let's go see what it is."

"Right," I say distractedly. "Yeah."

I hesitate. "Just...missing something. Hopefully, it won't be important, but I feel vulnerable without it."

You get closer to the light and gradually begin to make out its form.  It looks like a small pillar of filigree darkness, almost like a cage, holding within it a faint light.  As you get closer, you notice... something at the base of the pillar.  It's... a figure?  Please make sight tests.



As this is the first test of the game, please be sure to draw two cards first to form your hand.  You may also want to calculate your Fate Points, which at this point should be 4.

Louise leers into the darkness with the magnitude of 17 spades

You can barely make out the figure of a green haired girl resting against the pillar.  She doesn't appear to have noticed you.

As you step into the pillar's light, you feel warmed and somehow slightly comforted.  As you call out, the girl's head jerks up.

???: Hello?  Are you actual people?  You have faces so...
???: Hello!  Sorry, I don't know where we are!  I don't know who I am...
???: Um, this light's nice though, isn't it?  It's warm, so feel free to sit by it with me!
