Summary of the first Alone:
After the mansion-owner's wife died, he attempted to bring her back from the dead, but instead summoned a Hellgate, killing everyone in the mansion and trapping their souls (RPG ended prematurely, however in canon the characters dispelled the Hellgate and freed the souls).



Summary of the second Alone:
Dr. Kefka Kavoro discovered a damaged Hellgate on Isle de Fleur, off the coast of Maine. However, his attempts to study it caused him to be exposed to extreme amounts of Hellgate Radiation, driving him and his assistants insane. He created the Fleur Asylum, where he kidnapped people he believed to be most susceptible to Hellgate Radiation and used the asylum as way to study the effects of the radiation on them, killing them when he was done with them. Once a group of "patients" escaped and were found by the Coast Guard, the Asylum was raided and Kavoro arrested.
Once freed from the Hellgate's influence, he became determined to redeem himself, enlisting the aid of the escaped patients to help him destroy the Asylum. However, the Hellgate responded by reanimating the corpses of his victims to attack Kavoro and his allies (or so it appeared. It is possible the "zombies" were nothing more than hallucinations caused by Hellgate Radiation). In the end, Kavoro sacrificed himself to set off the explosives he had planted around the Asylum, burying the Hellgate under tons of rubble. Immediately after, huge waves began to strike the island, and within moments the entire island was lost below the sea.


           

====The Hellgates====
A Hellgate is a mysterious object that overflows with an undiscovered form of radiation. Prolonged exposure to Hellgate Radiation is bad.
The "Gate" itself is a two-dimensional sheet of energy, however the inside of a Hellgate is closer to a five-dimensional Mobius Strip.

There are three types of Hellgates:
Magic Hellgates are summoned via spells (IE, Alone 1). They tend to be unstable, often destroying themselves and everything nearby after the spellcaster dies.

Synthetic Hellgates are ancient stone doors, covered with strange ruins. These gates are often closed, and are nearly impossible to open...and completely impossible to destroy.

Spontaneous Hellgates are purely theoretical, but they could appear anywhere and be any size, from a single atom to the size of the entire universe.



===Superstorm Desmond===
A mysterious storm that envelops most of the country, beginning at the end of Alone 7 and continuing to grow from then on. 


===The White Beast===
A creature resembling a cross between a bear and a gorilla. Completely hairless and bleached white, it has a disturbingly humanlike face. it attacks people lost in the storm.


===Hellgate Entities===
Strange things pulled from within the Hellgates. Not living creatures in any sense, but rather, appear to be Hellgate Radiation given a physical form. However, this explanation may not be sufficient, as the Entities seem to be sentient.
Known Hellgate Entities:
The Nightmare Spirit: Appears in Story 3, mentioned in Story 5.
The Thing in the Light: Appears in Story 9.


===The Cult===
A cult that operates out of Old Oaks. Their history and motives have yet to be revealed. Worship a creature called the Hooded One.


===Agent R===
A sinister man with an interest in the Hellgates. Involved in almost all stories.


===Unlocks===
Misoru (Fair of Fear, Old Oaks), John (Old Oaks), Ryan (Fair of Fear, Code Red, Old Oaks), Mira (Old Oaks)

Name: Haley Vector
Age: 19
Bio: Haley lives across the street from the Layton family, so it's understandable that she's become friends with them.
Appearance: Short brown hair, average height. Wears an eyepatch over one eye. Her one good eye is a deep purple color.

Name: Corey Vector
Age: 18
Bio: Haley's younger brother didn't WANT to go camping, but his sister didn't give him much of a choice.
Appearance: Exact same hair as his sister, and also the same height. His eyes are grey, however - it's often joked that that's the only difference between them. (Haley is understandably offended)

Name: The White Woman
Age: ??
Bio: This mysterious woman roams the mountainside. For centuries people have reported catching glimpses of this elusive figure.
Appearance: A tall, thin woman with white hair, eyes, skin, and dress. A thin trail of blood is left wherever she stands.

Name: 'Professor' Joe-Anne Garcia Layton
Age: 19
Gender: Female
Appearance: Joe has long brown hair that stretches almost to her waist, and blue eyes. She typically wears a red shirt with long blue jeans and a pair of silver runners.
Bio: Joe loves to shorten her name to what it is, just to trick people into thinking she's actually a guy, just to enjoy the shocked looks when they realize she's really a girl. She and her sister Crystal convinced Craig to join in the camping trip.

Name: Craig Joseph Layton
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Appearance: Craig has odd hair that's part green on the top, but the sides and back are brown. He is not sure at all why he has this odd hair, but he hates it. Craig has blue eyes as well, and often knowingly smirks. He wears white coloured clothes a lot, with some blue shirts mixed in.
Bio: Craig often keeps his hair covered due to it being teased a bunch; however, he left his hat at home, due to no-one there usually teasing him. A handful of times, but nothing much. He's paranoid about the trip, however, due to hating camping and knowing about the old stories about what happened on camping trips. He also likes to spout off random quotes from time to time

"Oh, are you awake, Ryan?"
Ryan's eyes flickered open, and took in the sterile white room. Before him stood two people dressed as doctors, a middle aged man and a young woman.
He shook his head to clear it. No good. Who was Ryan? Was that him?

"Where am I... Who am I...?" Ryan asked, unsure of what had happened, and although he tried to think, all everything was, was a blur.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on November 12, 2013, 10:41:17 pm
"Confusion. Amnesia. Mild discoloration of the pupils. He's a confirmed case." The man left the room.
"Er, sorry for that abruptness." The woman laughed kindly. "I'm Jessica Robyn, one of the doctors here. You're here at the Isle De Fleur Asylum. You're suffering from...well, the medical community hasn't named it yet, so we call it Fleur Syndrome. This facility is the only one in the world to treat it. Now, do you remember anything?"


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: Blade on November 12, 2013, 10:44:24 pm
-==IC: Ryan==-

Ryan shook his head to confirm he did not remember anything. Ryan gripped his head slightly, as the effort was making his head hurt slightly.
"Fleur syndrome...?" Ryan asked, confused as to what that was.

Post by: The Truth on November 12, 2013, 10:51:21 pm
"Yes. Now, this will be your room. Now, it is indeed a 'padded cell', but I don't want you to think we think you're dangerous or anything. Now, there are a few rules. The doors automatically lock between 6 PM and 10 AM. Between 10 AM and 6 PM, patients are free to wander around the main level of the facility. All off-limits rooms are locked with a keycard, so you don't need to worry about accidentally wandering someplace you shouldn't. The only 'dangerous' patients are kept in their rooms at all times, so no worries there. You may not, under any circumstances, leave the facility. However, if you need anything, one of the doctors -Myself, Dr. Lane, or our boss, Dr. Kavoro- will go to the mainland once per month for supplies. Breakfast is served from 10:00 to 11:00. Lunch is from 2:30 to 3:45, and dinner is from 5:00 to 5:50. All meals are in the main hall. If you're ever lost, there are signs everywhere."

Ryan nodded slowly, but wasn't entirely certain why he needed padded cells and auto locking doors.
Something seems odd here... Ryan thought, but gripped his head after that, headache still present from trying to figure out his memories.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on November 12, 2013, 10:56:19 pm
"Anyway, I'll leave you to explore. Feel free to ask any of the doctors if you have any ques-"
A boy burst into the room. "Doctor Robyn! She's gone!"
Dr. Robyn blinked. "Who is?"
"My sister!"
"Your...sister?"
"Yes! We were eating lunch, Dr. Kavoro pulled her aside to ask her some questions, and I haven't seen her since!"
"Johnathan...are you taking your medications?"
"What?"
"I don't recall you ever having a sister."
Dr. Robyn left the room.

Ryan frowned at what happened, and watched the doctor leave the room, before he looked over at the boy, apparently named Johnathan.
"Who are you?" Ryan asked, obviously reasking the question, but he was curious as to what was going on, and it would help him establish things that were happening. Though, he shook that thought out of his head; the best thing was to figure out who he himself was in the first place. Ryan ringed a bell; but was that really his name?


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on November 12, 2013, 11:01:28 pm
"John. Sorry, I didn't mean to interrupt. But..it's just...Sally...but maybe...NO! There's no way I imagined her! My memories are real!"

Ryan frowned, but nodded.
"I believe you." Ryan said, though he wasn't sure where this confidence was coming from.
"I'm... Ryan." Ryan introduced himself; the name seemed to fit him, and it was the best he had to go on at that precise moment.

(At the table)

Steven glared at his fish. "This is salt. This is literally a pile of salt in the shape of a codfish."

Mira looked at Misoru. "I have to ask...what's with the lab coat?"
"It's a lab coat."
Johnathan guided Ryan over to the table. "Hi guys."
Misoru's eyes widened, and she gave a slight gasp.

That just made Ryan even more confused, but he nodded.
"I'm sorry, I just... I don't know." Ryan said with a shrug, meaning that he had no clue what the girl was trying to say.

Post by: The Truth on November 13, 2013, 02:09:54 pm
"N-never mind. I'm Misoru." She smiled at him.

"Steven." He held out his hand.

Ryan nodded to each, and shook Steven's hand.
"Nice to meet you all." Ryan said, but there was something off about everything here that he just couldn't place his finger on...

Post by: The Truth on November 13, 2013, 08:23:21 pm
"So, you're a newbie?" Steven asked.
Before Ryan could reply, he noticed a man standing beside him.
The newcomer was tall, gaunt, with jet-black hair, piercing eyes behind his thick glasses, and a long, sniped nose.
"Indeed he is."


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: Blade on November 13, 2013, 09:20:40 pm

"Doctor Kefka Kavoro, founder and head doctor of the Isle De Fleur Asylum. I make it a personal mission to get to know each and every patient."

OOC: Maybe I did. What did I do?


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: Blade on November 13, 2013, 09:53:15 pm
OOC: Think about that first name. Just think about it. =P

Ryan frowned, but nodded.
"I see..." Ryan said, still unsure of the guy, but was a little willing to give him a chance. Besides, he never knew him before; right?


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on November 13, 2013, 09:57:03 pm
OOC: I actually don't know what Franz Kefka looked like.


IC: "So, Ryan, I know you're still adjusting, but I want you to know, if you ever have any problems, we're all here for you."
Dr. Kavoro adjusted his glasses and returned to the staff table.

"No... I'm not cold. I'm not sure why I shivered." Ryan said, unsure, as he grabbed his head for a moment.
"Sorry; my head's been doing that at times today." Ryan shrugged, as he moved his hand away from his head.

Post by: The Truth on November 13, 2013, 10:47:07 pm
Mira put her hand on his forehead. "Hm..no fever, at least."
(Steven): "Listen...not to scare the newbie, but..do any of you remember a guy named Francis?"
Misoru nodded. "Green hair, sort of pear-shaped?"
Steven nodded. "Anything else?"
John thought a moment. "Wasn't he reading a lot?"
Misoru nodded. "Yeah, all those weird fantasy books. Why?"
Steven sighed. "When I asked Dr. Robyn where he was, she looked at me like I was crazy. Said there was never a patient like that."

Ryan frowned, as he considered what they were saying, and thought for a moment.
Wasn't Johnathan saying something about something like this earlier too...? Ryan thought, and looked over at John.
"Something similar happened earlier, didn't it?" Ryan asked, the frown still on his face, as he considered the implications.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on November 13, 2013, 11:07:53 pm
"It happens pretty often." Misoru sighed. "The doctors called it...um...something like Communal Pseudomemory Manifestation. Apparently the Syndrome makes you really prone to false memories, and hearing someone else describe THEIR false memories will make you remember them too."

"Because Johnathan said recently that his sister had the same thing happened, and she never returned. And I'm still not buying this false memory stuff." Ryan said, as he thought for a moment.
"If no-one else will follow, I will." Ryan said, as he stood up, looking in the direction they headed only seconds before.

Ryan frowned as the doors closed, as he recalled the doctors saying that they could go anywhere, except...
Why would there be a top secret area housing the place that they give shots...? Ryan wondered, as he recalled that his first memory when he woke up was of someone holding a needle over him.
I might be seeming a little paranoid over this, but there's no way this isn't connected... Ryan thought, as he looked over at the doors, to see if there was any way to open them.

"No, I think I was always distracted. It's like that saying where you can walk into a room and instantly forget why you went in there, until you exit the room and realize, oh yeah, that's why." Ryan said, and then paused.
"Don't ask me how I recalled that, though, it just popped into my head just now." Ryan said, seeming slightly confused about that.
"Maybe it might be a good idea for the treatments after all..." Ryan said, as he seemed to ponder how the memory appeared, but in reality, now had a plan for getting past the security.

Dr. Robyn smiled. "Alright then." She swiped her keycard, and the door hissed open. She led him down a long hallway into a large white room. There was a large operating table in the center of the room, shelves covered with test tubes, some empty, some filled with oddly coloured chemicals, and a tray of needles. There was also a human shaped object standing in the corner, but it was covered with a sheet.
"Alright, since Dr. Kavoro is with Dr. Lane in the next room over, how about I handle this? Lie down on the table, face up, please." She gave Ryan a reassuring smile.

The lights flashed brightly.
Dr. Robyn pulled out a needle and injected a crimson fluid into his thigh.

The world split in two. Blood poured from the sky, drowning him, entering every orifice.

"Paranoia." Dr. Kavoro said. "Delusions. Symptomatic of Stage Two of the Syndrome. You're lucky we're here to help, without treatment you'd be dead in a few days. Now, I'm going to give you some pills." He removed two bottles from his labcoat and handed them to Ryan. "The red ones are for the paranoia, the yellow ones should help prevent hallucinations.

"What is this 'Syndrome', anyway? So far all I've heard are excuses to justify how I've been acting toward you, so if you want me to not be skeptical about this whole mess, it's probably an idea to explain a little more."

"It's a mental disorder. We're not certain how it starts, but it begins by attacking the parts of the brain responsible for short-term memory. It also causes Schizophrenia-like symptoms, which combine with the damaged memory to form false memories." Dr. Kavoro explained. "It's a very recent disease, it was first discovered earlier this year. We're not even sure how it spreads. This facility is therefore both treatment and research in one."

Misoru smiled mischievously at him, and remained firmly on top of him.

Ryan just shook his head, a small smile on his face, as despite the situation being rather embarrassing, it was still humourous, and Ryan was beginning to notice that.
"Yeah. They're trying to hide something for sure... There's absolutely no way any of this is a coincidence. First Sally, then the guy you were talking about, and now Steven. There's something going on, and..." Ryan explained what had happened when he had gone to follow the two earlier.

Misoru rolled over so she was face-to-face with him.

(Mira): "But it would need to be late at night, and our doors all lock then. And we'd need a keycard anyway."

Misoru broke off the hug. "Just wanted to thank you for helping to cure us."

Post by: The Truth on November 25, 2013, 10:42:37 am
Misoru blushed. "sorry. We tend to be easily startled. Something about living in a padded cell does that to you."
Dr. Kavoro walked over. "Since it's getting rather cold, we'll be serving hot chocolate in the main room."
"Great!" John said. "Oh, uh, where did Doctor Robyn go?" "Who?"

Dr. Kavoro wave Dr. Lane over. "Lane, did you hire an assistant while I was gone?"
Dr. Lane shook his head. "How odd." Dr. Kavoro muttered. "And does the name Doctor Robyn mean anything?"
Again, Dr. Lane shook his head.

Ryan narrowed his eyes, as something just wasn't adding up.
Patients, they could explain away. But there is no way that there are false memories of the doctors themselves. Ryan thought, keeping his face neutral.
That Kavoro guy is up to no good somehow, I'm certain of it... But how do we prove it, if we can't get out...?


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]

"Stand back." Ryan warned, as he stepped back a bit, and then ran at the door, attempting to use his foot to kick the door in.

The door gave way slightly, revealing the room to be filled with smoke. Mira lay of the floor, almost unconscious.

The basement was almost pitch black. It was a single room, with a staircase in the corner leading deeper, and a motorboat bobbing in the corner, where the basement met the bay.

Ryan looked over at the staircase with a slight frown.

Ryan walked over to it, and looked at the controls.
"I think... I know how to drive this." Ryan said, recalling an instance where two brothers drove a boat across the lake, and then ryan gripped his head.

"I'm sure, it was just some sort of memory..." Ryan said, steadied once more.
"I think it was just me getting used to it returning or something..." Ryan said, and frowned.
"That itself kinda proves what they were saying is a lie... I haven't taken those supposed pills all day." Ryan explained, as he shook his head.
"I think the part of the Asylum we were in was all a sham, at the least... But what's the story...?" Ryan wondered out loud, as he made sure everyone was in the boat, before he began to start it up and take off.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]

The storm began to pick up. The waves grew choppy. Behind them, a bold of lightning struck the Asylum.

Ryan winced, as the cold water drenched him to the bones, however, he kept steering the boat in what he hoped was the right direction.
"Okay, so, maybe not the wisest of plans, but we still have hope."

Post by: The Truth on November 29, 2013, 08:26:18 pm
Another huge wave splashed them, threatening to overturn the boat, as the wind began to howl more fiercely, the rain blowing in their faces. A huge clap of thunder echoed overhead.

The Coast Guard boat noticed them and moved over to them, dropping a ladder to help them up.

(Officer): "Wait, I know you...Ryan Hikari! There's been a Missing Persons report on your for three months!"
(John): "What about the rest of us?"
(Officer): "Let's wait until we get ashore, and we can check our database, look into getting you back to your families. In the meantime...tell us everything."

Ryan frowned, as something seemed odd; but he went with the obvious question first.
"Three months...?" Ryan asked, and frowned.
"Who was it launched by, as well?" Ryan asked, curious about that.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on November 29, 2013, 09:20:42 pm
"Your parents."

Ryan gripped his head all of a sudden, as he recalled a variety of different images; a car door slamming angrily, a tombstone, a person who just abandoned hope after a father died, a mother who just turned away after losing the rest of her family...
"Par...ents?" Ryan asked, emphasizing the s, as his eyes cleared slightly.
I remember a bit now... I don't have a father, not anymore...

OOC: See, it would've been more believable if it had've been Tomas. =P Which was kinda why I had Ryan ask, as it would've fueled the search. Instead, it made him wonder if these coast guards were really for the mainland, or to stop escapees. =P


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]

"Hm. Well, the report was placed by a Tomas Wright, but whoever entered it in the database marked it as your father."

(Officer 2): "Ah, here we are...Misoru Rachel Steiner. Reported missing last year."

(Officer 3): "Mira Alice Thorn. Reported missing seven months ago."

(Officer 4): "Johnathan Andrew Hobbes. Reported missing five months ago. You're all accounted for...what the hell happened? Where were you?"

Tomas Wright... Who are you...? Ryan wondered with a frown, as he shook his head.
"Given the time disparity, it would appear that we've been held captive for the last while..." Ryan said, and began to explain what he knew, still inwardly wary of things, as something just didn't seem right; it just seemed almost too coincidental and perfect...
I just can't give up here. I need to find this Tomas guy, and find out what's going on, and then head back and figure out what happened at the Asylum.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on November 29, 2013, 11:44:24 pm
"Jesus." The officer muttered. He turned to one of his fellow officers. "Call back home, have a squad - no, two squads - go check that place out. As for us, let's get these kids to shore, someplace warm, and try and call their folks." He turned back to the escaped patients. "Now, can any of you remember the names of any of the missing people? Or the patients and doctors that are still there? I need spelling too, if possible."

Ryan recalled at least the first names of the ones that went missing, and the ones that were told about, though let Johnathan explain about Sally; he also explained about the Doctors, including the now-missing Robyn.
"I'm sketchy on some of the spellings of the names, but I recall some of what they looked like." Ryan said, as he explained that.

"Jessica Robyn..." He typed it into his computer. "Worked at a different asylum for a few years, then vanished..." He kept typing. "William Lane...is coming up blank. And Kefka Kavoro...Hm. According to this, he's a doctor of Geology. No medical training whatsoever."

"Hm..his number is listed here, but let's wait until we're on dry land."

~~~~~Back at the Coast Guard building~~~~~
Misoru took a sip of hot chocolate and bit into an oatmeal raisin cookie.
Mira stared at the ceiling, and John gazed blankly out the window at the rain.

One of the officers approached them. "Alright, Ryan. Got Tomas on the phone right now." He handed Ryan the phone. "Miss Misoru, we couldn't reach your parents, but we managed to get in touch with your grandmother." He turned to Mira and John. "We're in the process of contacting your families right now."

"Alright." Ryan said with a nod of thanks, as he accepted the phone.
"Aaaah, who is this? All the people told me was that they were the coast guard, and that someone wanted to talk to me..." The voice on the other end said, and then paused for a minute.
"No, Sally, I don't know who's trying to call us now. It seems like it's every time you get a chance to actually visit, something happens..." The voice seemed to complain, and Ryan slightly chuckled. At that, the voice paused.
"... Ryan?" The voice asked, as Ryan looked surprised.
"Are you Tomas Wright? So you do know me after all?" Ryan asked, and the voice paused for a moment.
"So the rumours were true, about the Asylum... Yeah; I'm Tomas." The other caller said, and Tomas sighed, and began to explain about how they were related, and how he had requested help on the investigation.
"So, wait, I just agreed?" Ryan asked, wondering why he would do that.
"Because you're a detective; I'm sure even that hasn't been lost to you... I wish I hadn't just dismissed the rumours that there was something odd there, and that there were a bunch of people who had just gone missing, yet not returned..." Tomas said, and explained how he had looked into it a bit, but despite not seeing any connections, but had not heard anything about memories.
"If I had've known they were messing with memories, I would've never sent the request, and might've gone myself..." Tomas said, and behind the receiver, Ryan shrugged.
"Hey, no worries. Things are coming back, at least. Say hi to Sally for me, and sorry if I interrupted your date." Ryan said with a smirk, and Tomas stuttered.
"I-it's not like that!" Tomas said, and Ryan rolled his eyes.
"Suuuure... Well, enjoy your time with your girlfriend, Tommy." Ryan said, hanging up before Tomas could realize that Ryan was recalling more now than he let on.

"Well... That was unexpected." Tomas said as he hung up, as he looked back toward Sally Finch with a smile.

The officer woke Ryan from a lovely dream about ninja ballerinas fighting a pineapple. "Good news. We stormed the place. The dangerous patients got sent to an ACTUAL sanitarium, Doctor Kavoro is in prison - no sign of Doctor Lane - and the other patients are all here. We're working to get in touch with their families right now. Thought you'd want to know.

Steven's corpse rose from the ground, slowly advancing towards the asylum...
"TRAFFIC IS BACKED UP ON THE INTERSTATE. LOOKS PRETTY BAD! GLAD I'M IN THIS HELICOPTER, HAHA."
The alarm clock startled Ryan out of bed. Sally Finch peered through the door. "I warned you, Tomas sets his alarms loud."

Doctor Kavoro checked John's pulse, then led the way into the depth.

"Please, listen to me! After a week on the island, I noticed strange things in the island itself. The soil was bizarre, utterly devoid of any nutrients despite the waves constantly depositing new materials on the beach, and also demonstrated strange pH balances - far, far more Basic than anything in nature. And the further inland I got, the worse it became, until, at the center of the circle created by these oddities, I found this horrible Gate, half-buried under piles of rock. No plants would grow near it, and no animals, not even insects, would approach. Would that I had been half as wise! But in my hubris, I thought to study the Gate. No force on earth could open it, nor could anything close it that last half-inch. No tool could scratch it, and there was no way for me to study what it was made of. But what I did not realize at the time was that the radiation seeping from that crack was slowly altering my mind, planting the seeds of ideas that would lead to the Asylum."
He paused.
"I then met William Lane. A physicist from the Miskatonic University, he was eager to study the effects of Hellgate radiation ever since one of his professors encountered a Hellgate in the Amazon. With both our minds warped by the Hellgate, we decided to find people that seemed particularly susceptible to Hellgate radiation - that is to say, between the ages of 14 and 21, intelligent, and who had had a recent traumatic experience - and see how the Hellgates affected them. We would bring them here, keep them drugged, and study how prolonged exposure affected their minds. Then we would kill them, dissect and study the corpse, and bury their remains here in the basement. We...we must be standing above nearly a hundred of them. All innocent...all because of my madness. I came here now to atone. To try, with my last breaths if I have to, to destroy the Asylum and bury the Hellgate once more."


OOC: As a note, there's nothing on any side of the Hellgate. For all intents and purposed, it looks like a statue of the Gate of Truth. (http://ginnodangan.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/fma59-21.jpg)

Post by: The Truth on December 02, 2013, 05:17:05 pm
"I'm afraid not. Dr. Lane knew more about Hellgates...he explained them to me. They can't be destroyed, not by man or God. They're harmless when closed, and utterly obliterate all around them when fully open. But this one...it seems damaged somehow. Unable to close itself fully. So just enough radiation leaks out to ravage the minds and souls of those around it."

Ryan growled, as he leaped back, letting go of Mira's hand in the process, and then kicked the hands away, and picked up Misoru with a frown.
"Let's just go!" Ryan yelled out, as he dashed after Mira quickly.

OOC: Unless Ryan is secretly the Hulk, I doubt he's strong enough to carry her all the way across the beach without being eaten. :P

OOC: Adrenaline. =P Though she can't be THAT heavy, can she?

Post by: The Truth on December 03, 2013, 10:22:32 pm
OOC: She's fairly tall, and definitely much curvier than normal. I imagine she'd be heavier than the average girl.

"Misoru, get ready and go ahead!" Ryan said, as he tossed her over a nearby zombie, and attempted to do the same thing as he just did, except with Mira, using a nearby zombie's head as a stepping stone after he freed her as well.

OOC: I'm gonna have to choose, aren't I? =P

Misoru landed headfirst in a pile of sand, with just her feet sticking out.

Misoru shrieked as hands grabbed her feet and legs before she could stand, and began to pull her down. The corpse of Steven grabbed for Ryan's neck.

Post by: The Truth on December 03, 2013, 10:55:07 pm

Ryan tossed the zombie off of him, and attempted to punch the other two away, as he grabbed Misoru and Mira's hands, and made one last ditch rush toward the Asylum; as there had to be some way in.

OOC: You really don't want anyone to survive, do you.

Doctor Kavoro was lying before the Hellgate, bruised and bloody. One of his legs had been torn completely off, and his left eye was missing. He had managed to drag the explosives over to the Hellgate.
He looked up as they entered. "Hurry." He gasped. "before they regroup. Get in the boat and begone. I...will end it."

Post by: The Truth on December 04, 2013, 05:53:09 pm
The rock landed on Lane. He stumbled backwards and tumbled off the boat into the water...right by the propeller.

Misoru winced at the sound, as Mira turned green.

OOC: Tell me you at least didn't see the ending. >_>


IC: As the boat entered the ocean, an explosion rocked the island. The Asylum vanished in a burst of flame, rocks flying everywhere.
(Misoru): "...Kavoro..."

The waves began to rock heavily. As if guided by some greater will, they pummeled the island, and within minutes, the entirety of Isle de Fleur was lost below the sea.

The woman stood atop the mountain and watched the stars. A single shooting star passed by overhead, as small droplets of rain fell upon her, mingling with the small pool of blood around her feet.

Craig looked shocked for a bit, but then scowled with a disgruntled look on his face.
"Yeah, and we're out of luck if something happens..." Craig muttered, looking to either side, as he frowned, and mimed holding the phone to his head, without the phone.
"I think that there's something after us! Hello? Hello?! What do you mean there's no service!?" Craig yelled out, yelling into the air phone at the last part.

"You know you shouldn't mention them. He'll probably act crazy around Haley again... Last thing we need is him flirting with her again." Joe said quietly with a smirk, as Craig blushed for a brief second, and his eyebrow twitched.
"I was just trying to get on good terms with my great assistant!!" Craig said, and Joe simply shook her head with a chuckle, and moved ahead of them.

"I agree." Joe said with a smile, as she looked over to where the other two were, and chuckled to herself quietly.

-==IC: Craig==-

Craig was very much aware of Haley sitting next to him, and smiled slightly, as he swallowed his bite, and took another, smaller, bite of the sandwich, hoping that was still alright.

Haley gave him another small smile and took another bite herself.

"Check out all the cool rock formations!" Corey said, beginning to enjoy himself.

"You're right!" Joe said with a grin, and then cleared her throat.
"These rock formations were actually carved out by nature itself, which makes it even cooler; to know that stuff like this can exist in nature alone." Joe said, impressed by it herself.

-==IC: Craig==-

Craig was definitely enjoying the trip a little more then, and took another small bite, though a little more, since Haley never seemed to complain.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 04, 2013, 10:18:12 pm
Haley took the last bite and stood up.

(Crystal): "We should get back to walking if we're gonna reach the campsite before it gets dark."

OOC: Not until you reach the campsite. This is the intro.

(Corey): "Hey! check this out!"

Post by: Blade on December 04, 2013, 10:37:49 pm
OOC: Ah, alright. =P

-==IC: Joe==-

Joe looked curious, but walked over to where Corey was looking, even as Craig shrugged.
"El, Psy, Congress; I think the Organization has sent in a sleeper agent, and he's trying to bore me to death. What's that? The Organization has yet to make a move? Then I must engage operation-" Craig's air cell phone trick was cut off by a glare from Joe, who had overheard him, and Craig was taken aback, and pretended to dust off his lab coat.

OOC: =P


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 04, 2013, 10:39:19 pm
Corey pointed to chunk of stone. Upon closer examination, symbols could be seen carved on it.

Post by: Blade on December 04, 2013, 10:43:29 pm
-==IC: Craig==-

Craig noticed, and even he dropped his act, as he walked over, and knelt down.
"Most intriguing... I've never seen this type of rock before..." Craig said, and Joe sighed.
"You wouldn't know different types of Rock to get yourself out of a paper bag." She pointed out, and Craig paused.
"Urk! Well... Okay, can't argue there..." Craig mumbled, and started to go for his phone act, but shrugged.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 04, 2013, 10:44:37 pm
Corey flipped it over. There was a picture of a woman standing on a cliff carved onto the other side.

"Oh, the tragic loneliness; this is obviously an ancient piece of art that was made in honour of a girl with a broken heart; standing on the cliff wondering if she would ever see her lover again." Craig said in a know-it-all fashion that made his younger sister just look at him and shake her head.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 04, 2013, 10:54:24 pm
Corey put it back where he found it. "Let's leave it so other people can see it too."

~~~~At the campsite~~~~
(Crystal): "OK, Joe, Corey, you help  me with the tents. Haley, Craig, go..um...something."

Joe nodded, as she stretched, and then walked over to the tents, as she began to help set up, and Craig nodded slowly, as he motioned to Haley, but didn't know quite what to do after that.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 04, 2013, 10:59:01 pm
Haley wandered off into the forest.

"H-hey; wait up...!" Craig said, inwardly cursing his inability to take charge, as he ran after Haley.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 04, 2013, 11:08:46 pm
Haley wandered over to a clearing and sat on a rock, watching the sunset.

-==IC: Craig==-

Craig stood behind her, and smiled, as he noticed the sunset as well.
"It's been a while since I, the mad sci- ... Nah, I think I can drop that for the moment. It's been a while since I've seen the sunset with anyone, really. Been so focused on everything else, I forgot about friends." Craig said, and nodded.
Maybe this trip might do me good after all...

Haley stared up at the sky. "Look...a shooting star."

"That's very cool." Craig noted, as he watched it pass, mentally wishing for something.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 05, 2013, 08:32:03 pm
"Even stars...they seems so far above us...unreachable...permanent. ..but even they fall." She muttered. Despite the gloomy tone of voice she took, she was smiling.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: Blade on December 05, 2013, 08:36:37 pm
-==IC: Craig==-

Craig smirked.
"Well, my assistant, the reason they fall isn't to lose hope; but give hope to others, that even if things seem far away, they might be closer than you expect."


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 05, 2013, 08:39:15 pm
"So they die...to give hope to others." She smiled faintly.

Craig nodded, it wasn't exactly what he meant, but it worked well still.
"Yeah; like a hero making a final sacrifice, to protect the dreams of others."


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 05, 2013, 09:18:16 pm
"...Heroes..." She stood and reached up at the stars, the starlight sparkling in her eye. "Are there really any heroes anymore? Where there ever any in the first place?"

Post by: Blade on December 05, 2013, 09:20:40 pm

Craig laughed as if he were mad, and then smiled once more.
"Perhaps there's a hero in everyone, and they just don't realize it yet." Craig said with a shrug.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 05, 2013, 09:22:00 pm
"I can't see that." She said. Turning her face away from him, she removed her eyepatch. "But at least I can see the stars."


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: Blade on December 05, 2013, 09:25:20 pm
-==IC: Craig==-

Craig noticed her reaching up for her face, and looked away, knowing that she wore the eyepatch for a reason; even if it was never actually explained.
"That makes sense." Craig said with a nod, even if they couldn't actually see each other.
"Who knows; maybe some of those things are said simply to keep hopes up that there is really good in the world still."


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 05, 2013, 09:27:14 pm
She reached for the stars again. "A star can keep shining in our sky even millions of years after it burns out...It doesn't die peacefully."

"Stars are wonderful things, aren't they?" Craig said with a small smile; they might not always agree on things like heroes, or whether the incident was an accident or not, or whether the whole act he put on for the world to convince himself of what his path should be was childish or not; but she always had a unique look on things, a way to keep hope in her own way.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 05, 2013, 09:36:02 pm
She retied her eyepatch and turned back to him, giving him a small smile. "We should get back to camp."

"Right." Craig said, as he turned back to Haley.
"And if they're still having trouble setting up, I, the mad scientist, can show them how to set up a tent."


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 05, 2013, 10:12:44 pm

Haley blinked at the smell of the s'mores.

"Just as planned! Of course an assistant of mine would be unable to resist the glorious smell of smor-" Craig said, and got cut off by Joe pushing him out of the way.
"Less crazy talk, 'mad scientist'." Joe said, as Craig sighed, but nodded.
"Smores are ready. They smell good, even if no-one wants me to bring the bunch of them elsewhere. I guess they remember that last time too."


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 05, 2013, 10:48:55 pm
Haley picked one up and took a bite. She smiled and held it out to Craig.

"I think it may be a possibility, as experiments would be necessary to confirm or deny; but what about you?" Craig asked, curious about that.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on December 06, 2013, 01:09:48 pm
"It's a nice thought. Maybe when they die, they're sacrificing themselves to make our wishes come true."
She reached out to one of the stars.
"Long ago, some Native Americans believed that the night was a blanket over the skies, and the stars were light seeping through."

"Definitely a bit, yeah." Craig said with a nod.
"I shall, however, solve the mystery of my great assistant; for I am the mad scientist-" Craig started to say...

Post by: The Truth on December 06, 2013, 01:29:19 pm
~~~~~~~Once everyone is asleep~~~~~~~~~~~
The woman stood before the campsite.
Her white dress billowed in the wind as she looked upon the sleeping campers. Tiny droplets of blood splashed upon the ground where she stood. She watched them until dawn broke, and they began to awake, and she was gone.

Joe yawned, as she opened her eyes, and smiled mischievously.
No-one's awake yet. Perfect. Joe thought, as she looked around, and slowly snuck over to Crystal's bag, and began to slowly look through it, to see whether she could find a piece of gum quickly, or anything like that.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]

Haley gave an evil smile. "I don't dislike scary stories."

~~
The pinecone was interesting largely due to the way it was utterly identical to all other pinecones.

OOC: Read the pinecone part in the voice of the Narrator from The Stanley Parable.

"Well...ghosts don't come out during the day...usually." She smiled faintly again, eying him carefully.

(Crystal): "OK, forget this blood, it was just an animal. We need to get moving if we're gonna reach the lake by nighttime."

The forest grew thicker and thicker, until the sun was entirely blotted out. Thick overgrowth covered much of the trail. The forest was completely silent, save for an occasional gust of wind. The trail continued twisting higher and higher up the mountainside.

Outside, the village was suddenly filled with people. A middle aged man pantomimed digging in the ground while a young child watched him.

The man fired his musket. Corey's head exploded in a burst of blood and flesh. His lifeless body toppled over and slid down the muddy incline. Crystal shrieked and skidded to a stop, fighting back vomit, as Haley dove to the ground.  The man faded away.

OOC: I warned you...Can't outrun a musket.

Joe blinked, as she saw what happened, ducking to the ground too.
"I... what..." Joe just stared at Corey's body, unable to believe what she was seeing.

"... What happened...?"

Haley turned and walked off.

The Woman sighed. "The villagers are stuck on a repeat of their final day. They have some autonomy is disrupted from their routine, but in general they no longer have their minds."

She stood before the Hellgate. "Their final day was that of the failed Sacrifice. If a new sacrifice were offered, the villagers would provide the prayers. If their prayers are enough...I cannot say."

Haley placed her hand over her eyepatch.
"Well...we barely know anything about this village. We should investigate more, see what we can learn. Explore the other houses, watch the other ghosts. There might be a clue."

"I think we should find out why this happened here in the first place. If something went wrong with the ritual, if we can find out what that was, we can correct it. The woman in white said something about bathing in the sacred well, right? We should look for that - but if you make any moves like you're actually planning to sacrifice yourself, I'm tying you up and locking you in one of those ruins until the curse is lifted."

Haley didn't seem to hear Joe. Both her eyes were wide open, and she had a blank look on her face. A faint red light was visible inside the pupil of her normally-covered eye.

A cold, electric feeling covered Joe's body. Her muscles would not move.

Post by: The Truth on November 21, 2015, 10:05:23 pm
Her vision was filled with a red fog. Each breath was like filling her lungs with needles.

Mist appeared over the well. From within the mist was visible a group of men, leading a young woman to the well.
(Man): "Let this well cleanse your sins. Let it make ready your flesh, that the Gate may accept you as a child of the Lord."
The girl slowly climbed into the well.

The men vanished, and the girl's position changed, as though she had been in the well a while already. From the mist behind her emerged a transparent figure, darker than the rest of the memories.

The figure wrapped its hands around the bathing woman.  Black tendrils covered her and slid into the well. Its surface turned black and oily, but she seemed unaware.

The image faded. Joe's body returned to normal, and Haley quietly reapplied her eyepatch.

"Every time I open that eye."
She turned and stared at Joe. "You see so little of the world. Imagine if you looked at a spot of ground, and you were able to see every human that ever died there since the dawn of time. And imagine...they could see you, too."

Joe bit her lip, as she tried to hurry up with the cutting, wincing as her arm started to twinge with pain a little from the sheer amount of movement it was doing in such a short time. She tried to pull Crystal free with her other hand, but had a bad feeling about how this would go.

Post by: The Truth on October 11, 2016, 10:59:46 pm
Haley made a sort of nervous choking noise, then ripped off her eyepatch. "Sator!"

It was like a pause button had been pressed. The air felt thick and heavy. White light shone from everyone present .
Haley sat down, gasping. "That...won't buy us long. Hurry."

"A-alright!" Joe hurriedly continued to cut through the hairs, and then finally tried to pull Crystal away. "Come on, we have to go, then..." She cast a worried look over to Haley while slipping the scissors into her pocket. She cast her now-free hand to Haley, offering her a way to stand up and be supported while they ran.

The hand that took hers was not Haleys. It was ice cold, with long nails that dug into Joes flesh. Haley and Crystal were gone. There was only blackness, and the thing grasping tightly to Joe's hand.

Joe shrieked out in surprise, as she tried to find some way to get herself out of the hand's grip. She wasn't sure what had just happened, but had a bad feeling that she did not want to know. ALl she wanted, was to get out of its grip.

Post by: The Truth on October 11, 2016, 11:11:50 pm
Joe fell to the ground, splashing water everywhere. Beside her, Haley was helping Crystal to her feet. Her eyepatch was back on.
"You OK? You looked kind of strange for a second there."

Joe panted heavily, and blinked as she looked at Haley and Crystal. "Umm... We might want to get moving quickly. I..." The girl pushed herself to her feet with a bit of a wince, as she tried to quickly explain what had just happened.

Haley looked down too. "...right. The village was built into a cliffside."

"It was definitely... different." The girl glanced over at Haley with a slight frown. "It wasn't really... anything bad until they got angry, but..." She bit her lip for a moment.

"Is seeing them what you mean? That it's normal that you can see them?"


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 12, 2016, 12:27:07 am
"More than just them." She sighed. "Imagine seeing the ghosts of ever single human who ever died in an area, at any point in history. And not just that. Echoes of events, too."

"I'll... take that as a yes." The girl let out a slight giggle, and paused for a moment, before she bit her lip, and gave Haley a small hug. "Next trip, I'm letting you decide where we're going, especially based on what might have the least amount of paranormal activity. While entertaining, it's not worth all the grief."


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 12, 2016, 01:35:18 am

"Ghosts don't 'want' anything. Other than one or two extremely powerful ones, most ghosts have no minds. They're just anger, pain, and sadness, and they lash out at everything. They crave the warmth of the living. But there's no thought or reason behind it."

Post by: The Truth on October 12, 2016, 09:28:57 pm
"First we'd have to exorcise whatever spirit is trapped in mid-sacrifice...the woman in the dress, I presume. After that, we'd need to repeat the sacrifice process with the purified spirit."

Haley nodded and started climbing down the mountain, towards the dry riverbed.

Joe hurriedly followed close behind. She hoped that things would work out with their plan, but she had to admit that she wasn't entirely certain how exactly she would manage to keep herself, Crystal, and Haley safe.

Haley held up her hand for them to stop.

Joe suddenly stopped, just short of accidentally crashing into Haley. "What's up?"


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 13, 2016, 09:59:32 pm
"Ssh."
She pointed ahead. Barely visible in the darkness was a massive stone doorway. A human form was writing in the air in front of it.

Joe took a cautious step forward to get a better look. "Who, or what, is that...?" She quietly whispered to Haley, as she furrowed her brow in confusion.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]

"Looks like that woman in the white dress."

"The very same."

Joe nodded. She hoped that was a good thing, and slowly began to move once again, though she felt there was still a catch.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 15, 2016, 12:05:09 am
Haley grabbed her by the back of the neck and pulled her backwards. "Wait!"

Joe didn't have to be asked twice, and simply looked over at Haley. She partly wondered if that was necessary, and partly tried to catch her breath from the sudden grab.

"Take my hand. It will help you see them."

Joe seemed surprised, but nodded with a smile. "Right." She reached out for Haley's hand. The girl seemed a bit hesitant, but that lasted merely a second as she realized that it was Haley's idea anyway.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 15, 2016, 12:38:21 am
As soon as she took Haley's hand, she could see a dozen glowing figures surrounding the gate.

"Oh, yeah, that's gonna be tough." Joe frowned slightly. "Our plan is for me and Crystal to distract them, right? Or...?" She wasn't so certain now, whether she was staying with Haley so she could see the ghosts, or if she was going to be with Crystal, distracting said ghosts.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 15, 2016, 12:43:27 am
Haley nodded. "Once you get close enough, you'll be able to see them on your own...and they'll be able to see you."

"That sounds foreboding, but we have to do it." Joe gulped slightly, but knew that Haley and everything here was counting on her doing this right.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]

The ghosts turned to them as they got closer.

"Well, this might be a tough one. So, I basically just run, then?" Joe asked to confirm, as she nervously laughed.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 15, 2016, 01:00:00 am
The ghosts charged at her.

"Right, don't die." Joe's words ran together, as she took off in the opposite direction that Haley was in, intending to make this distraction worthwhile.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 15, 2016, 01:05:49 am
Crystal took off in the opposite direction.

Eight of the ghosts swarmed after Joe.

Joe mumbled something about them needing to stick together, but simply focused on continuing to run.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]

the spirit of an old man popped up in front of her.

Joe was half tempted to stop and ask if she could help him, but common sense won over, and she instead ran to the side quickly, to take another path away from the new ghost.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 15, 2016, 01:21:01 am
Something wrapped itself around her feet.

Joe grit her teeth, as she fumbled around in her purse, to try and get the scissors once again.

between the trees, an abnormally tall figure appeared.

That bad feeling simply intensified, as the girl continued to try to get herself free.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]

The shape became more visible. A tall woman, with every visible bit of flesh covered in vicious scars.

WARNING, WARNING, BAD FEELING.

Joe struggled against the hair, as she tried to run the second she could.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 15, 2016, 01:36:07 am
The Scarred Woman extended her arm towards Joe. A massive amount of hair burst from the ground, wrapping itself around her throat.

Well. This wasn't good. Joe tried to claw at the hair that had surrounded her throat, as she struggled to find a way to free herself. The way the hair was, she had a feeling any attempts to cut it loose would both fail, and end up just slicing open her throat in the process. That said, she wasn't quite seeing any way out of this.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]

The Scarred Woman moved past her, towards Haley.

Joe grit her teeth, as she struggled to free herself again, trying to attract the woman's attention. She did not want the woman to get to Haley, at all.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]

Crystal ran over and grabbed hold of Joe. "You cut, I'll pull!"

Joe nodded, as she quickly snipped away at the hairs, trying to get them quick enough to help Haley.

Joe managed to struggle free.

With a grit of her teeth, Joe dashed toward where Haley was, as she tried to keep the Woman's attention. She just hoped that Haley wasn't going to be too much longer, as she realized that she would likely be very sore the next day.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 15, 2016, 11:49:58 pm
The Scarred Woman spun around and raised her hand, sending ropes of hair toward Joe.

Well that was an improvement. Not a good one, but it was something. Joe attempted to put her gymnastics classes back when she was in school to use, and tried to nimbly dodge to the right. She tried to keep on her feet as much as possible, as if TV had shown anything, people don't take long to recover to attack more.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 15, 2016, 11:57:57 pm
Walls of hair erupted from the ground on all sides of her. Faces bubbled within the hair.

Well, snap. Joe saw no way out of this one, and gulped, as she glanced around, trying to find some way to escape from here. Keeping the Woman's attention would be bonus points.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 16, 2016, 12:06:14 am
The faces pressed in towards her.

Well, this would be on the list of 'stupidest things'. Joe decided that, in lieu of any better ideas, that she would simply punch the nearest ghost face with all her might. Even as she did it, she wondered just how this could be a good idea. She still hadn't figured that answer out yet.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]
Post by: The Truth on October 16, 2016, 12:17:04 am
As soon as her fist hit a face, the walls vanished.

Joe was dumbfounded for a moment. That moment passed, and she attempted to get the woman's attention once again, despite that being another stupid idea. But this time, a stupid idea that was needed, if Haley were to stay alive.


Title: Re: Alone [RPG] [PG-13+]

The woman turned and flew directly at Joe.

That worked a little too well. Joe turned and ran away, as she sought to keep the Woman's attention even while she ran.

There was a bright flash of light, and a shrill, high-pitched screaming noise.
