Event: Tower of Fatorum; Part Two Sign Ups

After a couple days of--well, chaos--a rather frazzled voice can be heard over the intercom. It's Dax, which may be surprising for those who know it's not his month to have control of the Tower. What he says may be more surprising: "We're holding a Q&A in the cafeteria. If you'd like to show up, go ahead, okay?"

The Q&A session takes place here, featuring all of the administrators except Ruana. Ruana is certainly active, though--certain residents and guests may find themselves with the following note:

We're going to have some party games! You get to participate in at least one, isn't that exciting?


What are they participating in? Well, they won't know until the date, listed on the back of their notes, arrives. But they're going to be playing a few dangerous games...

Sign-Up Rules
-Sign ups end February 16 at 11:59PM EST.
-You may sign up for a maximum of two games (excepting the final Animus-only sign up). List your events in the order you'd like to participate, with the first one being the one you'd most like to participate in. Depending on how many people sign up for each game we may have to cut off participation at certain numbers. If you have no preference for order, please mention this.
-If you are a Destiny Strings player, you may sign up for any of the games that are not Animus-only. Be aware, however, that if a ☠ shows up beside a game, this means there is a chance of death in this game. If your character has already used their revival beads, it may be best to avoid these games. Even if you still have your beads, it may be best not to sign up for two games with a chance of death.
-If you are a Tower of Animus player, make sure to mention if you would like to have a chance to have your character participate in the final Animus-only event. We will randomize who gets to participate in this event; make sure you will be reasonably available between the 21st and 25th.

And now, the games.

Little Finger
Anyone may participate in this game. This game will begin on the night of February 17. ICly this event will last for one night.
Instead of a date on the back of their note, characters participating in this game will have the following story, which they will be compelled to read. On the night of February 17th, all characters who received this note will fall into a deep sleep even if they don't normally sleep at all. They cannot be awoken from this sleep. They will, as promised, dream of the woman and her missing finger. Once someone finds it, they will be let out of the dream. The remaining players will experience the dream again. While the amount of times the dream repeats will vary based on how many people are playing, not everyone will be able to escape this dream. Anyone left over when the game ends will enter a deeper and deeper coma until their vital signs cease entirely.

Ghost Watching
Anyone may participate in this game. This game will begin on the night of February 18. ICly this event will last for one night.
A little after 10PM on February 18, retrieval units will gather all participating characters. Anyone who resists will be knocked unconscious and forcibly taken along. They will be escorted into the elevator, which will have somehow expanded to fit all occupants, and taken down to a floor far below those that are used by residents and visitors. They will exit onto the front yard of a small house.

Players will be split into small groups and instructed to go through the house clockwise, opening every window one by one and then, once they reach the front door again, turning around and moving counter-clockwise, shutting every window they opened. While they do this, they will hear, feel, and see strange things--spirits. If the instructions aren't obeyed or if the spirits are angered in some other way the source of their anger will be dragged away. Any character dragged away will be out of play until the 21st. The players are only safe once they have shut all of the windows AND exited the house.

The Bath Game
Anyone may participate in this game. This game will begin on the night of February 19. ICly this event will last for one day.
A little after 8PM on February 19, retrieval units will gather all participating characters. Anyone who resists will be knocked unconscious and forcibly taken along. They will be escorted into the elevator, which will have somehow expanded to fit all occupants, and taken down to a floor far below those that are used by residents and visitors. They will exit into a large bathroom with separate bath stalls.

Players will be instructed to go into a stall alone, fill the bathtub with water, remove their clothes, and sit in the tub facing the faucet. The lights will then go out. Players are to wash their hair while repeating "Daruma-san fell down" over and over. Players are NOT to open their eyes. As the player washes their hands, they will visualize a Japanese woman standing in the bathtub. She slips, falling onto a rusty tap. Her face is pierced by this tap; she bleeds to death. Eventually, they will feel slight movement, hear the sound of shifting water, or generally feel a presence; this is the ghost you have summoned. Players are NOT to open their eyes. They will sense her rising up out of the water, feel her tangled black hair settling over their right shoulder as she leans in to look at you. There is a hole somewhere on her head, torn and bloody.

As soon as the player senses the presence of their ghost, they are to, WITHOUT OPENING THEIR EYES, ask her "why did you fall in the bath?" The player must then stand and get out of the bath, taking care not to slip and not to open their eyes. They are not to drain the bath. They are to dry off and get dressed as best they can without opening their eyes and then exit the bath stall. The lights will come back on and they can open their eyes. If at any point before this they open their eyes they will be drowned in the bathtub by the ghost. The players who have survived will then be escorted back to the Tower.

For the next twenty-four hours, the ghost summoned will follow its player. At first it will just be subtle, seen out of the corner of the eye or in a half-caught reflection, but she will draw closer and closer as the day wears on. The player can't allow themselves to be caught by this ghost: if she gets too close, the player must shout "STOP" and run as quickly as possible to put some distance between them. At 9PM on the following day, though, the game must be put to an end: the player must catch a glimpse of their ghost, shout "Kitta!" and make a karate chop motion to cut them loose. The game will then end.

If they are caught by their ghost, they will be killed by it. If they do not cut their ghost loose before they go to sleep, she will drown them in their dreams, and that death will come true.

Something Unexpected...
This is for Tower of Animus players only. This event will begin on February 21st. ICly this event will last for two days.
Well, well, it seems in all the chaos of game-playing someone has left the administrator elevator doors open. There's a barrier blocking the visitors, but collared residents can enter the elevator. It seems to be pre-programmed to a certain floor, however. I wonder what you'll find?

To sign up, please go here and fill out the form. If you have questions, go here.

Just so I know, will any kind of special powers work in the Little Finger dream? (Mostly asking in regard to Urotsuki's effects since they originally come from dreams/are used in dreams.)

Would it be possible for you to quantify the degree to which these games/events are likely to rely on prompt replies between characters?

Certain days are shaping up to be busy for me and I don't want sign up for anything taking place at those times if delayed posting would gum up other players' ability to participate.

For Ghost Watching, what do you mean when you say the characters will be out of play till the 21st? Do you mean that absolutely nothing can be done with them? Also, where are they being dragged to? Will they have memories of where they were dragged to?

I have my suspicions, but to confirm;

Hizumi normally can't die through weird supernatural ancestry. Attempts to kill him usually just end in horrible maiming that is just lucky enough not to kill him, or insta-death scenarios just luckily not happen (i.e. fully loaded guns pointed at his head shoot blanks). As a result, being able to die would actually make him pretty happy, aha.......

But anyway, I'm guessing this is getting negated? If so I'll just try to keep him out of those scenarios.

Just a clarification, but for Little Finger, will characters be able to observe the people around them besides the woman from the dream? AKA is it a big group search?
