INTRO LOG: BLACK CATS & WALKING UNDER LADDERS

Who: New arrivals and everyone else!
What: The intro log for February.
Where: The colosseum and all around the city.
When: February 10th-13th
Warnings: Fresh meat, creepy moving shadows, terrible luck, the screams of your loved ones.


Welcome to Hadriel, new friends. While waking up on the ground of a broken colosseum may not be the most pleasant arrival, you can at least find comfort in the fact that there's no giant monster immediately attempting to eat you. Plenty of the people already here will tell you that they weren't quite so lucky. But - wait. Is that something moving in the shadows, or is it just your imagination?

Of course it's not just your imagination. That would be way too easy. No, arriving along with everyone this time are wraiths, vengeful spirits that enjoy darkness, shadows, and misery. On the plus side, they won't try to kill you. On the minus side, their touch chills you and saps your energy, as well as inflicting a temporary curse of awful luck. Anything that can go wrong, will, including (and especially) things that might kill you. Wraiths are subtle and sneaky, so be sure to watch your back. That shadow isn't just a shadow.

Compounding the confusion the wraiths can cause, you just might wake up to the sound of chattering voices - only to be quite alone. A small flock of jabberjays has come through the Door as well. These genetically engineered birds are capable of mimicking entire human voices and conversations - as well as screams of terror and pain. Initially only in the arena and bringing only conversations from their world, they'll soon settle throughout the city and begin to learn the voices of those living in Hadriel. Your best friend screaming bloody murder just a street over? It could be them, or it could just be one of these lovely birds. Don't let it stress you out.

Once you've escaped the colosseum, hopefully without accidentally impaling yourself on your own weapon, feel free to go explore the rest of the city! Find a house, find a new monster, or simply scavenge for supplies. Good luck, and enjoy your stay in Hadriel!

Nick's just stopped over to visit, barely made it through the entranceway herself when the front door opens again and some dude she doesn't recognize starts talking. She remembers Chris saying his friend Mike disappeared during the snowstorm, so even though they've never met, when he walks in rambling on, it doesn't take a lot of guesswork on her part to make the leap that this must be him.

"Not really seeing the humor in that, personally," she says, "but I have been accused of being a fun-hater in the past, so I may not be the best judge of that." She shrugs. "Let me guess - you must be Mike."

The voice he didn't know threw him off but he took it in stride in the hopes of saving face if this was no longer 'his' house. At least she seemed to know him, that was promising.

"It's in the whole 'gee things seem to be looking up, oh wait not anymore' part. Real funny how often that seems to happen." He flashed one of his charming grins even though he wasn't really feeling it at the moment. It'd be better once he knew where his friends were.

"You're guessing right, but I don't think we've met, I don't forget meeting pretty girls." The flirtation was easy as breathing even if he was feeling about as flirty as he was feeling humorous right then, but stick to what you know right?

"I'm looking for my friends, they used to live here. Chris, Ash, Sam? Any of those names ring a bell?"
bekommen: (i can't get no satisfaction.)

"Yeah, that's not funny at all, actually." Nick lets the coy banter slide by with only a roll of her eyes in response. She's heard enough insincere compliments from guys at the bar after she's poured them a few beers to not take anything of the sort anything approaching seriously. "Any idiot knows you don't go wandering out into a blizzard." Well - any idiot who lives in a place where winter storms are a threat, at least. Nick's a Midwest girl, born and bred, with twenty-five years of harsh winters under her belt. Not everyone's had to deal with those kinds of conditions their entire lives.

"Nah, we haven't met. Chris told me about you, though. He still lives here, and the girls, too. I come over sometimes." Then, almost an afterthought, she adds: "I'm Nick."
