(Jenny) Blizzard (Latventure)

Postby Jenny » Sun Aug 16, 2020 11:11 am

You stand in the middle of a blizzard, which doesn't seem natural. You feel as if someone is staring at you, but cannot see anyone. A wisp of something resembling a dark cloud is hovering nearby. Proceed.

Examine the cloud.

Look, listen, smell, taste, feel.

Check inventory. What are we wearing?

Are we HAM? Is the blizzard unnaturally: warm? Silent? Small? Unseasonal? Sudden? Dark? Bright? Did I see anyone before it started? Do I know how it started? When? Why?
Examine the ground we're standing on.

Examine the cloud. It is a dark cloud, with strange energy pulsating within it.

Look, listen, smell, taste, feel. The cloud feels both warm and cold, and almost solid when touched. You hear a voice begging for help. The cloud has no other distinguishing characteristics that could be ascertained with five senses.

Check inventory. What are we wearing? A blue shirt, a pair of faded black trousers, a hat and a bag.

Examine the ground we're standing on. There are chunks of ice strewn across the ground.

Is the voice coming from the cloud? Ask how can we help.
Any objects around? in our pockets? in the bag?

"My sisters are trapped." the voice says "You need to help them escape."
Any objects around? in our pockets? in the bag? There are none around, but there is a piece of paper and a handful of coins in your pockets, and several food items in your bag.

Examine the ice on the ground. How far does the ice spread? Does it appear to be just regular ice, made of water? Is there anything frozen in the chunks?

What happens if we approach the cloud? Can we reach out and touch it? Ask the voice if it knows who made the blizzard, and where its sisters are trapped and by whom.
