Event log: Who What Where Wendigo

Who: Everyone participating in the wendigo event!
What: The accidental-cannibalism-turned-horrifying-monster event that is the Who What Where Wendigo event!
Where: All around the city
When: Feb 14th-March 1st
Warnings: Cannibalism, body horror, evil monsters lurking around.

Don't forget to check up on the Wendigo Guide that Ami posted!

On February 14th, Rage and Fear decide to give Hope a little bit of help taking care of the residents of Hadriel - they'll provide some food for awhile. How nice! Except, of course, that there's an extra ingredient in this food. A can of beef stew? Yeah... that might not be beef. But hey, it still tastes pretty good! Unfortunately, some spirits slipped through the Door last time it opened, and they're ready to possess anyone who participates in cannibalism - even if they don't know it.

Anyone who eats the provided meat will be possessed by a wendigo spirit. Over the course of twelve days, they will transform into a monster that feels little but rage and hunger. While at first it can be explained away easily enough (people are super annoying, and isn't everyone a little hungry most of the time?), by February 18th, wendigo transformations are impossible to ignore. A few days after, on February 22nd, the anger and cravings of the wendigo spirit will overcome all other emotions, and possessed characters may begin hunting.

The physical and mental transformation will be complete by February 26th. The possessed characters will have lost themselves completely at that point. While physical healing (done by a character with Hope's blessing or another healing ability) can turn back the physical and some mental effects, they will remain possessed until death or until Hope removes the wendigo spirit - which can only be done on the altar of Hope's temple. So have fun dragging your angry, possessed friends there!

On March 1st, Rage does Hope a solid (because she feels sort of bad) and kills all remaining wendigos. Upon revival, the spirit will be gone and the character will be fully recovered. Hopefully no one holds what they did while possessed against them!

[Nick is always a little on the irritable side, that's nothing unusual, and neither is a periodic trip to the shops to stock up on supplies. Granted, the food here isn't the best, but - well, beggars and choosers and all that. She pokes her head out from behind a nearby shelf when she hears a complaining voice that she vaguely recognizes.]

The real question, though, is "Is it shittier than usual?"

[He nods to her, a reasonably friendly hello considering the aimless annoyance he feels right now.]

Sure seems like it is.

[But in fact, it's not really any different than normal. It's just that whatever Josh is looking for - he's not sure what - is nowhere to be found, and he's hungry.]

But whatever. I guess we've gotta make do.
bekommen: (for fear your grace should fall.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-02-26 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
That's the name of the game - making do.

[She frowns at a box of ... something, she isn't sure what exactly.]

You'd think these assholes might try making it a little easier on us to make do.
pighead: <user name=yevon> (it's a big scene)

[personal profile] pighead 2016-02-27 07:43 am (UTC)(link)
But then they wouldn't get to laugh while we flail around miserably, right?

[There's an edge to his words that might not normally be there. Josh's temper has been on thin ground recently, and he doesn't really know why, but he can think of plenty of reasons.

None of them are 'because he's slowly turning into a wendigo', though.]

I could go for a nice juicy steak right now. Maybe they could open a steakhouse for us.
bekommen: (i can't get no satisfaction.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-02-29 04:14 am (UTC)(link)
Maybe if we all just hold hands and hope for it hard enough.

[She clasps her hands together mockingly, then rolls her eyes.]
pighead: <user name=yevon> (waxed my chest)

[personal profile] pighead 2016-03-01 07:13 am (UTC)(link)
[He laughs at that, abrupt, more bitter than amused.]

Yeah, that'll work out great. Give a little, get a little, right?
bekommen: (for fear your grace should fall.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-03-15 01:02 am (UTC)(link)
If you believe these assholes in charge, I guess.

[She shrugs, and pushes a couple cans aside to dig for something at the back of the shelf.]

It still sounds like a fucking joke to me. Not even a funny joke - a bad one.
pighead: <user name=yevon> (and shaved off all my hair)

[personal profile] pighead 2016-03-15 08:30 pm (UTC)(link)
That's pretty much how you could describe this whole place. I'd laugh if it didn't involve actual torture.

[He might laugh anyway, but Josh is at least aware he shouldn't admit that.]
bekommen: (gimme shelter.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-03-20 08:37 pm (UTC)(link)
No shit.

[She grabs the can and squints at the label, inspecting for whether it's actually going to be edible.]

How would you say this place ranks compared to Canada? Better or worse?
pighead: <user name=yevon> (too long i've let my self respect)

[personal profile] pighead 2016-03-22 05:18 am (UTC)(link)
Far as I know, Canada has a lot less monsters. Not as much torture, either.

[He shrugs, picking another can off the shelf. Still unappetizing.]

But hey, what do I know?
bekommen: (tip top ready for the rocket.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-03-30 11:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[Nick laughs under her breath - Canada probably has more monsters than he knows, if his Canada is anything like the one she came from. Nightbane just aren't obvious about it.]

Well, you know more than people who've never been to Canada, at least.
pighead: <user name=yevon> (pic#9857324)

[personal profile] pighead 2016-03-31 10:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[Even in his own version of Canada, there are most monsters than he knows.]

I guess that's something. You can educate me on all the stuff I got wrong, though.
bekommen: (come over come quick.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-03 02:33 am (UTC)(link)
[She laughs again - louder this time.]

Hey, it's not like I'm a Canada expert or anything. I was just there for a few weeks before I got pulled into this shithole.
pighead: <user name=yevon> (well the prom queen's)

[personal profile] pighead 2016-04-04 04:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Better than me.

[He grins.]

Where were you at before then?
bekommen: (now you've made an offer.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-04 11:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Before that? On the road to Vancouver. Before that ... Chicago.

[She squints, thinking back to what Chris told her.]

What about you? From LA too, same as Chris?
pighead: <user name=yevon> (pic#9857330)

[personal profile] pighead 2016-04-06 05:05 am (UTC)(link)
Lots of traveling, huh? Sounds like fun.

[He's still halfheartedly choosing and discarding food. Nothing seems right.]

Yeah, we've been friends for awhile. We're all from the same area.
bekommen: (nothing lasts forever.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-07 12:18 am (UTC)(link)
Eh, not really ... I just had to bail for a while. Some shit went down, I needed to leave town to clear my head.

[She shrugs, selecting a few of the cans off the shelf and shoving them into the bag she's brought. She's doing her best to sound nonchalant about it, but losing the two most important people in her life was an awful catalyst for the road trip that led to Canada.]

That's cool. I mean - it's not cool that you're all here in this shithole, but like - I guess it's better if you're not alone, right?
pighead: <user name=yevon> (and the frame's tight)

[personal profile] pighead 2016-04-07 06:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Can't blame you for that. Sometimes you've gotta get pretty extreme to settle things down up there.

[Really, leaving town is much more understandable than the way Josh coped with losing the two most important people in his life.]

Yeah, I guess it's all right having them around. Not sure they feel the same about me.
bekommen: (gimme shelter.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-11 12:26 am (UTC)(link)
Well, if they're still talking to you, you're probably fine by them.

[She shrugs. That's how she knew she and Andy weren't getting along anymore - they stopped talking.]
pighead: <user name=yevon> (well the prom queen's)

[personal profile] pighead 2016-04-13 05:52 am (UTC)(link)
I guess that's true. They talk to me. They don't even seem too pissed about the whole thing.

[Well, they are kind of pissed, but all things considered, it's not too bad.]
bekommen: (now you've made an offer.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-15 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, see? I'm sure it's all fine.

[The food selection, though - it's pretty much picked through. She sighs and closes up her bag.]

I think that's all that's worth taking. See you around, yeah?
pighead: <user name=yevon> (pic#9857341)

[personal profile] pighead 2016-04-16 12:51 am (UTC)(link)
[Not much there, and even less that Josh finds appetizing, and he's so hungry. He raises a hand in farewell, distracted.]

Yeah. Look out for monsters.
bekommen: (gimme shelter.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-17 04:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, you too, kid.

[She waves on her way out the door.]
