Event: Tower of Fatorum; Part Three

And now the games begin. All information on gameplay will be in this post, although some sections will not be updated until the appropriate time.

Little Finger Information
Anyone participating in this game will be compelled to travel to the dorm rooms, where they will fall asleep. No one will be able to wake them up, and they will begin to dream. There will be six rounds; the first one involving six fingers, the second five, the third four, the fourth three, the fifth two, and the final round only one to be found. Each time the setting will change slightly. Twenty-one characters may survive this event.

There will be a mingle and search subthread for each round. The mingle round will be for interaction with other characters in a way that does not involve a moderator response. Characters who post to the search subthread must state where their character is looking; a moderator will inform them what they find, if anything. Your character may find things other than fingers. Normally these things will not be dangerous unless the character is careless or provokes attack needlessly. More detailed information on each round will be found in the log here. Information on each round will be added as the different rounds begin.

If your character finds a finger and is turning it in to the old woman, please reply to this thread. A moderator will reply informing you when your character wakes up.

Ghost Watching Information
At 10PM on the 18th, anyone participating in the ghost watching game will be gathered by a red-collared retrieval unit. Anyone who resists will be knocked unconscious and dragged along by force; anyone not participating in the game who resists on behalf of another character will be knocked unconscious and left where they are. All participants will be gathered in the elevator, upon which they will travel down to a floor that appears to be the lawn of a small house. A retrieval unit will explain the game to them: that they must go into the house and walk through the house clockwise, opening every window one by one. They must then turn around and close every window one by one counter-clockwise before leaving the house. They are told not to disturb anything else. They will travel through the house in the following groups:

Group One
idolizer
altitonant_emperor
neverbeamemory
detecting
fish_or_die
Group Two
unlimited_shipping_works
tohko_amano
morituramfides
2ciion
seasidecherry
Group Three
atlasia
warriorscribe
otakuro
itsfromtheshow
earthshards
Group Four
notayoungkitten
bondsofsuffering
friendlyfiend

Group Five
yamaxanadu

autopsic
idkworldruler

Group Six
fiesta_de_los_muertos

helenchanted
Group Seven
maybe_a_king
greatergone
egotrigger
blitzkriegzwei
celebrity_commentator
Group Eight
destinedwaters
mask_of_suffering
foreatnoctem
bladedskies
pistolsakimbo


There will be a general mingle thread and a thread for each group; the mingle thread will be used for interaction between anyone participating who is waiting on the lawn before, during, and after various groups' turns, while the other threads will be group-only, as each group goes in one at a time, starting with group one. Each group member must be involved in a thread in at least three locations in the house (provided they don't get dragged off earlier, of course), but they may reply to more locations if they wish. While characters are encouraged to stay with their group, there is nothing keeping them from separating and looking around the house by themselves. The log will take place here.

If your character is taken away by spirits, please reply to the thread here and a moderator will reply explaining what they may remember of their captivity. They are not required to remember--if you wish, they may forget all of their time in captivity.


Bath Game Information
At 8PM on the 19th, anyone participating in the bath game will be gathered by a red-collared retrieval unit. Anyone who resists will be knocked unconscious and dragged along by force; anyone not participating in the game who resists on behalf of another character will be knocked unconscious and left where they are. They will be taken into the elevator, which will descend and open up into a large washroom with a series of shower stalls. A retrieval unit will present or read the note that explains the ritual.

The character must complete the ritual, after which they will be allowed to return to the Tower and go about their business as normal. Their ghost will now be following them. A moderator will inform the players how close the ghost is to their characters; players may NPC their own ghosts.

Good luck!

For Little Finger, if someone has an item on their person at all times, will it be on their person in the dream?

Will effects in the dream "stay" from dream to dream, or even to the real world? i.e. Xion just lost half of her hand in the first round. If she does not make it out in that round, will half of her hand still be missing in the second (or if she makes it out, will half of her hand still be missing when she wakes up)?

About the finger and note—when you say it will always return to the room, does that mean they can never leave the room? If Jungo took them out to do something other than destroy them (like show off his mad game skills or something) and held onto them, would they stay with him? Or would they just return to the room as soon as he stepped out?

I assume the groups will be getting their own subthreads in the location threads as their turn arrives? Or is sorting this out all up to the players?

Do Group 1 have to wait for any sort of signal to start or can they just crack on with it?

For ghost watching, are you going to be providing the ghosts' actions, or are we? If it's us, could you give us some examples and possible (or generic) triggers for them to maybe give us some ideas to start with?

For the bath game: I know the ghosts post-bath will be a mod thing, but how much of the bath ritual itself (the vision + the ghost rising up and leaning over the shoulder) will the mods/summoned ghosts respond to? Do we handwave it unless our character would open their eyes?
