Event: 1369

Something strange is happening with the retrieval units following characters around. First of all, more characters will find themselves with a retrieval unit tailing them--those who participated in the large break-in or who boycotted their collar checkups may find a new companion. However, they're a little odd; they seem to be being followed by the same, chipped collar retrieval unit constantly, as opposed to a constantly-changing set. Characters who have already had retrieval units following them will find that, sooner or later, their normal sets will be changed with one retrieval unit whose collar is chipped. This change is permanent, but for now the retrieval units don't appear to act any differently from the regular ones.

More obviously, on the morning of the 25th, Zo's voice comes over the loudspeaker. He's been very quiet this month, and he sounds tired, but excited nonetheless.

Hey, guys! I've been real busy this month but I worked on a surprise for you! Come down to the cafeteria!


Anyone arriving in the cafeteria will find the entire floor has been transformed into a carnival. In spite of the current cold weather, this floor has been made into the middle of summer. There's a large roller coaster, child's roller coaster, merry-go-round, spinning teacups, and a ferris wheel. There are also standard carnival foods available, from ice cream to cotton candy.

For two days, the carnival is perfectly safe and normal. Then, on the twenty-seventh, there are several large explosions.

From the twenty-seventh until the end of the event on the thirtieth, the carnival takes on a more sinister appearance--the machinery all appears rusted and broken down, as if weathered with decades of rain and snow. Plants grow up and around the rides, ruining them, and all the food is rotten. Strangely, characters may black out during the week and come back to themselves on this floor, lost in the middle of the abandoned amusement park.

And, as they wander in the eerie silence, ghosts of the past may appear...

If your character is wandering in the amusement park while it is abandoned, please reply here. They will see a unique scene involving those who inhabited the Tower before the game began. These scenes will not be physically damaging to your characters, but they may be mentally damaging. Only one scene may be witnessed per character.

I have a pressing question of the utmost importance.

When riding the rides like the rollercoaster, do the retrieval units hop on and ride with them?
warriorscribe: (Oh but...)

[personal profile] warriorscribe 2013-11-25 08:01 am (UTC)(link)
Where would the explosions sound like they are coming from, how high up the tower can they be heard, and when do they happen? At midnight?

I didn't notice a time for when these chipped retrieval units would have started showing up. Would they have been replacing the current retrieval units tailing people before today, or are they slowly replacing units going forward?

[personal profile] bashfulshifter 2013-11-25 10:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Do characters have these visions only when they black out and wake back up in the carnival, or can they have them if they just happen to be wandering around?

Related to that--since a character can only have one such vision, are they still able to return to the carnival after they've had theirs?

Is the normal cafeteria menu still available or has it been replaced by the carnival food?
ambassadorasshat: (buh-wha?)

[personal profile] ambassadorasshat 2013-11-26 12:03 am (UTC)(link)
Are characters allowed to save carnival food? Like take it out of the carnival-cafeteria and keep it in their rooms or whatever?
withani: (I'll just go over there now)

[personal profile] withani 2013-11-27 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
Are there any sort of carnival games, out of curiosity, or just rides and food?

I meant to ask this earlier, but what of those who participated in a diversionary measure while the break ins occurred? Would they be followed, or are there no units following them?
