Event Log: Fourth Wall, Part One

Who: Everyone in the city + Fourth Wall visitors!
What: Part one of the fourth wall event, hosted by Fear, Confusion, and Delight!
Where: All around the city
When: October 24th-November 1st
Warnings: Visitors from other worlds!

If you're not from around here, you may be wondering what's going on. You've woken up out of the blue in the colosseum, or near a temple, or in one of the numerous other locations in the city. You're somewhere underground and it's dark, cold, and maybe a little unnerving.

Luckily, shortly after your arrival, the road below your feet begins to light up in a gentle, warm glow. The light points you in a set direction and, if you choose to travel that way, will lead you toward the center of the city, where there is a large gathering of others who are lost here like you, people who might know their way around a bit more, and even some of the gods who rule this place.

There are lights strung up on poles throughout the large clearing, casting a comforting glow onto the tables beneath them. The tables are abundant with lots of food that looks simply delicious- though, none of it tastes quite like it should. The tarts taste like green beans, the mashed potatoes like cheesecake, and the chocolate seems oddly reminiscent of steak. In addition, there are decorations artfully placed around the meeting point. If you see them moving, don't worry- that's probably just your imagination.

Also distributed along the tables are shot glasses, filled with a sludgy, yellow substance. If you're brave enough to consume them, they taste strongly of mint and will give you a much needed energy boost, circumventing the need to eat or sleep for a full 24 hours! After that, however, everything hits you all at once, so use them wisely. Some of you may remember these shots from our How Delightful event earlier this year!

In addition to all of the above, there are also party poppers strewn around the area. Each popper can jet out some strange objects- glitter bombs, seashells, plastic dinosaurs, maybe a live lizard or two- so be careful! Feel free to use your discretion on these, but remember to keep it small!

Of course, you can always not travel that way. The rest of the city has plenty of places to explore- maybe you'd like to stumble in our Silent Hill zone, have a quick look around the alien orchard, or check out any of the god temples that can inspire their chosen emotion. Be careful not to get lost in the tunnels leading away from the cave- none of them can actually move you above ground, but you may run into a few monsters on the way.

For those of you who have been with us awhile, please bear with the gods while they try to adjust around these new folks! Join in on the festivities if you like, or try to orient as many of the others as you can. Start a community outreach program, start a fight club, introduce your parents to your weird cave girlfriend- nobody's judging!

Well. Some of us might be.

Enjoy the fourth wall event at Hadriel! Once you're settled in feel free to explore the rest of the city! Find a house, find a new monster, or simply scavenge for supplies.

Fourth wall characters do not enter with phones so they cannot reach the network- however, if you'd like to handwave that they somehow got ahold of Mello's Newcomer guide to avoid the 'where am I/what is this' sort of questions, then feel free!

Good luck, and enjoy your stay in Hadriel!

► This log covers October 24th-November 1st.
► Feel free to make your own logs as well! Fourth wall characters will not have posting access, so grab an in-game friend if you wanted to do anything separate from the main log.
► Fourth wall characters will be in the city for at least one week, though they can stay for longer. The party will go on throughout the entire week, thanks to Delight's boundless energy!
► Please put your character's name and open/closed in the subject line of your starters!

[It isn't like Rey has been actively seeking out anyone familiar. With the influx of all these numbers, she almost dreads the prospect of recognizing anyone from home.

[A flash of red hair does capture her attention. Only for an instant, though. He is far too weathered, scarred, and
male to be who she's thinking of. And there is a moment of selfish relief.

[That doesn't last long when she notes his current state. Rey has seen torture,
been tortured... and, if things go the way she expects they will, back home she has nothing but torture to "look forward" to in her future, should fate ever be so callous as to send her back home.

[Rey has rarely ever been one for tact and care, but this is one of those times that she decides to reel it in a little with the "dumb robot" act and be an actual feeling goddamned person for a change:]

Do you need a blanket?

[Sadly, she doesn't have much to offer in the way of clothing, herself, not even wearing a coat over her sleeveless shirt.]

{Maedhros fully expects to return, if he returns, or wake, right back hanging by his wrist off the cliff face. More torture. Walking free is a dream, he's sure. But he'll take advantage of it to the best of his ability.

His steps falter and he studies the unfamiliar woman. One of the Atani, he thinks, by her ears. Fleeting thoughts, and it takes him a minute to fully register her question. He blinks and forces himself to focus.}

If it does not put you to hardship, it would help.

{Why the kindness? He half doubts this is real. For now, he decides to see how things go. First step, some sort of covering, which seemed to be offered already.}

[Rey almost scoffs.]


[Not like she has anything better to do with her time.]

There are some shops nearby that'll have something for you. Can go get it. [She pauses.] Or you can come with, if you'd rather.

[Perhaps crowds of people aren't the best thing for this guy at the moment. He looks like shit.]

{A faint frown, undecided.} ... I will come with you. {It's best to keep moving, lest Maedhros fall and never again rise.}

But... I have nothing to trade, as you can see. I can offer some skills...

[Rey just waves a dismissive hand.]

Don't worry about it. There's no currency or trade in this place, unless someone has something you want.

[In the meantime, she'll just start leading the way towards the shops. She can't really offer much else at the moment. It isn't like she can just give him her shirt.]
