Event Log: Fourth Wall, Part Two

Who: Everyone in the city + Fourth Wall visitors!
What: Part two of the fourth wall event, hosted by Sorrow, Rage, and Hope!
Where: All around the city
When: November 1st-November 7th
Warnings: Visitors from other worlds!

Welcome to Hadriel! Or, for those who have been here, please continue enjoying your stay. Perhaps you arrived here last week, and have been wandering around since then, making new friends. Or perhaps you've just arrived, and have no idea what's going on. You may have woken up in the colosseum, or near a temple, or in one of the numerous other locations in the city. You might be confused and frightened to find yourself in this underground city, or maybe you're just wondering why you haven't been sent home yet, when others have.

Whatever the case may be, the situation in the city has changed somewhat. There is still a gently glowing path leading you to a nicely-outfitted party, but the specifics of it have changed. If you're a new arrival, it'll be easy to follow the path and find the party - if you're not, well, the color of the light has changed, signalling that something's different. Maybe you want to check it out?

Around the clearing are gently glowing flowers, illuminating both the tables and the rest of the area, bright enough to make things clear even when the larger light at the apex of the cave is gone. On the tables are an array of different kinds of food - however, sampling this food will quickly make it clear that nearly everything is spicy, whether subtly so or with a burning heat. The cookies seem to have chili oil in them, the dip has jalapeno-like peppers. It's hard to find anything that won't burn your mouth a bit. If you're lucky enough to find something that doesn't, though, it will most certainly be somewhat bitter or quite sour. That doesn't mean the food tastes bad - if spicy and sour are your sort of thing, they're delicious! If you're looking for something more normal, though, you're out of luck.

Also on the tables are a variety of drinks, and these at least are not spicy. Instead, they're the sort of warm, comforting drinks that might remind you of home, of curling up in a soft blanket while rain falls outside. Warm cocoa, hot cider, teas of various flavors. Just the sort of thing to soothe a worried newcomer.

Decorating the area are various banners with welcoming messages saying things like 'HADRIEL' 'THIS IS A PARTY' 'EAT FOOD' and 'DO NOT DIE'. They are all identical, with large black block letters on plain white paper. They look very similar to something that you might print out on a standard office laser printer at the last minute if you have no discernible sense of humor or fun.

Scattered around can be found exciting party games such as pin the tail on the donkey and musical chairs. Here and there can also be found various pinatas of different types. Break them open, see what comes out! If you're really lucky it'll be candy - if not, it might be full of bouncy balls or cherry tomatoes. Good times!

Or maybe you don't like parties? No worries. 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 came last week, here's your chance to help out newbies along with the people who have been here forever! Join in on the festivities if you like, or try to orient as many of the others as you can. Rule the newcomers at musical chairs, continue your fight club, pick up a second weird cave girlfriend and then watch as they dump you and hook up with each other! There's no end to the possible fun.

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 November 1st-November 7th.

► Fourth wall characters will be in the city for at least one week. If you want them to stay longer, our applications are now open!
► Please put your character's name and open/closed in the subject line of your starters!

[Rey, having a good time? Not much. She's on edge for some reason, and she can't quite place why. Like that feeling when someone is watching you, and the hair on the back of your neck stands on end...

[Rather than lingering on such matters, she casts a glance towards the reporter, talking like some journalist over a newsfeed.

[After giving it some thought, Rey just throws up a hand.]
But sure, why not.

[Pretty sure she's got time.]

I'm sorry to hear that.

[ If Piper had a notepad, she'd be taking notes as if there were an actual interview, and not her just trying to get some information.

She half expects to be dismissed, oh, how some things never change - but when Rey agrees, she gives her a nod. ]

Thank you. I'm just gonna get right to it... what's going on here?
circumitus: (503): forewarning i'll probably have done those drugs with you (i wanna bring you to show and tell)

[At the apology, Rey just shrugs. She doesn't care much for parties, but that isn't what she's here for. It isn't like Piper is the only one with questions that merit answers.]

Take it you're one of the people who just arrived without a phone. [Pause.] In that case, a couple of the idiots running this place decided that it'd be a great idea to tamper with a multidimentional doorway. That's how -- and why -- you're here.

[Because basically saying "you're an accident" is pretty rude.]

I'm not sure what a phone is, but I definitely didn't get anything before I got here. [ Some sort of prewar thing, maybe? Nothing new in her jacket pockets or on her person - she checked. ]

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold up a sec. [ The calm drops as Piper throws her hands up. ] Multi...dimensional what now? >
circumitus: Keep up the good work. (it's a 12/12/12 miracle)

[Rey just opens her mouth, then closes it, at a loss for words at first. Even by her own world's standards, not many people would remember what phones even are. Let alone those that look her age, though Rey is much older than her looks imply.

[After a moment, she just casts that aside. No reason to get bent out of shape over feeling old as balls.]

Doorway. It's like a portal.


Actually, it probably is a portal. With access to different worlds and timelines.

Sure, it sounds like something out of an old movie with a stupid twist. But that's what this is right now.
