(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.

Are we HAM? That is up to you Is the blizzard unnaturally: warm? Silent? Small? Unseasonal? This Sudden? Dark? Bright? And this Did I see anyone before it started? No Do I know how it started? When? Shortly before you got caught up in it Why? No
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.

Sisters: real people? other clouds?

Are the coins real money? modern money? ancient money?

food: edible? or do they need to be cooked/prepared before we can eat them? Are we at risk of starving?

Is what we were doing here before the blizard relevant ?

Ask the voice if they (btw. male or female voice?) are a witch/wizard and if they know a way to sop the blizard. Also, if they are trapped in the cloud, or if they have been turned into a cloud. If yes, ask if they know how to get them out/restore their body. And also, where we can sart to look for their sisters.

Take a look around to see if there are interesting objects/places.

What happens if you walk through the cloud? What do you see when you get to the other side of it?

As far as we’re able to ascertain, does it feel like “real life” to us? Like we’ve been dropped into a video game? Or a dream?

May we ask the voice what it knows of itself? Who it is? Where it is? What it is? How it understands us? How it communicates with us?

May we ask the voice what it knows of us? Who we are? Where we are? How we came to be in this blizzard?

Do we have an awareness of ourselves: who we are? where we are? how we came to be in this blizzard?

Do we know where this blizzard came from? Do we suspect it? Or is it unexpected?
Do we know where this cloud came from? Do we suspect it? Or is it unexpected?
Do we know where this voice came from? Do we suspect it? Is it unexpected/ are we surprised to hear this voice?
Is there anything missing that we would expect to now sense or still sense in this moment?

Do we recognise this voice from a time prior to the start of this puzzle? To the best of our knowledge do we know or can we suspect: who the voice belongs to? who the sisters are? how we came to be in this blizzard?

Do we possess any knowledge of the surrounding landscape (albeit potentially now concealed from us by this blizzard) as based on the presumption that the blizzard has not transported us to some other place than where we were prior to its appearance? or knowledge that it has transported us somewhere? have we experienced this blizzard before? or have prior knowledge of it? have we experienced this cloud before? or have prior knowledge of it? have we heard this voice before? or have prior knowledge of it?
