As the tourists, guide and security guard exited the bus, there was a beautiful site to behold. Phasma Diabolus stood before them cloaked in a very light, dissipating, fog.

Posted Image

"The ruins were originally discovered during the construction of a French prison colony in the mid-19th century." Johnson Willoughby told his tour group. "I bet some of those original excavators wished for some modern plumbing. Well, don't worry because MOTEE Tours has state of the art facilities for your enjoyment. Please take some time to take in the outside of this beautiful temple before we journey in for the tour. Stretch your legs, use the facilities and feel free to look around. Your tour will begin in about a half hour."

Before the group could begin looking around, they heard a commotion from the bus. They turned to see Security Guard Fred Thomas escorting Jack Baxter off the bus.

Posted Image

"I'm coming, I'm coming." Jack protested. "I didn't hear that there were facilities out here. I thought it'd be my last chance to use the john..."

The momentary distraction passes and the group begins to explore the main entrance to the temple...

________________________________________________


Rules for Game play (borrowed mostly from Dragonator's Mystery Manor)

  • There are to be 21 participants. If you commit to the game you are committing to contributing to the story and sticking with it to the end. I am trusting you all not to drop out halfway through, as that is never any fun.
  • The winner will be announced at the end of the game. Players will be scored along the way on certain criteria and completion of objectives. This will not be clear until the end. Ask questions for clarity along the way, but don't be surprised if the answers are cryptic. Of course, to win, you must survive…
  • Attempts to solve the mystery or objectives can be postulated in the game itself. The truth will be revealed at the end. If someone solves the mystery before then, the mystery will play out and that player will be given points for solving it.
  • Throwing out constant solutions will only get you killed. If an objective is to find out who stole something and you end up posting a guess of every other player, your latest post will be taken as your solution and you will be killed anyway, so just don't do it.
  • You must search for clues. This means that an action must be specified. For example, you wish to search a room for hidden objects. The following is an example of how not to go about this:
    "I wish to look for suspicious or hidden objects in this room".
    Instead, you must be able to specify what you want to do. For example:
    "I would like to open the drawers of the cabinet."
    It is not required for you to specify exactly what you are doing and what you are looking for, but a generalised statement will not find you anything. Act like a detective and you will be fine.
  • Dynamic Actions: Actions you wish to carry out without all of the other players' knowledge can be PMed to the game host, Hinckley. You may or may not be allowed to do what you request.
  • Attacking: I have setup a system for attacking and defending that is needlessly complicated and I won't try to involve you all in the specifics. At a certain point, you may want to attack another player. PM me your attack and I will answer if it is plausible or not. Some characters just would not attack another player, based on their character description. Some characters are stronger than other when it comes to defense and counter-attack. So think before you attack.
  • Life points: I am using TheBrickster's life points system, however I will not bother you all with the details. Just be careful and do your best to live. :devil:
  • Host response time: Please be patient. You may bring the story to a point where you need the host to further game play. I will be on top of this game as much as possible. Please be patient with me between chapters as well.
  • The game host is always right. :wink: Please don't question the rules or the info you are given. Take the info I give you and work with it. If you're terribly confused, please say so or ask questions. But, if I don't give you any further info, please be patient with the info you are given and try to work with what you have.
  • Stagnant game: If you find yourself trapped in a room, it is because you need to find a clue or you've missed something. Don’t argue with the game host. You’ll be there until everything that needs to be discovered has been discovered.
  • This game is meant to be fun, so enjoy yourselves!
  • Please try to avoid editing your posts, as it can lead to suspicion against you. Just consider what you want to say before you say it or even proofread and you'll be fine.
  •   Failure to follow these rules will result in a warning. A second failure will result in the humorous death of your character.

Cast of characters:
Pleas note: more character info will come to some players from the host before each chapter starts.

Oh my! It looks simply stunning! More lilac than carmine at this stage of the evening, but as the eclipse begins I expect we'll see the violent flood of chroma!

I must make some notes for a future commission I may be working on. As well as being a natural blonde, I am also a talented interior designer. You'd be amazed how many big Hollywood names want their jacuzzis recreated in the style of an ancient, crumbling temple to the blood moon complete with willing, nubile virgin sacrifices *cough* Tom Cruise, Michael Bay and Angelina Jolie *cough*

Oh beloved, we have finally reached our destination, oh well almost in one good piece. We had so much hiccups earlier on, glad that all of us are to visit this.

I wondered if there is any other people whom have visited this site before? Perhaps I should take a closer look at those stone pebbles at the ground to see if there is any other significant footmarks apart from ours.

There is an odd set of animal tracks heading from the staircase off into the woods.

A closer look at human footprints reveals a faint trail of prints leading to a small rock near where Penny is standing.

This gives me quite abit of creepy feeling. I wouldn't want to find out or even encounter such animals that is living in there.

Hmm... That's odd. I thought there aren't any such tours around. I wonder whom it might be. Penny could you step aside for awhile, and help me with this small rock, by shifting it away. The human trail can't supposed to just end right here.

*since the rock and footprints are stationary objects, it helps more to look at them directly.*

*Perhaps your camera is better suited for etchings, shadows and oddities...*

These ruins are sort of neat, I can see why William there is rather taken by them I guess. They have an eerie feeling to them, hard to describe really...

So... Sandy. How about we go over and take a look at that rock with Penny and the annoying geezer that guy.

I would just love to get a closer look at the buildings, see if there's any markings or symbols? Perhaps start on the pillars?

Velcome to Fantasy Island... okay, that's the last time I say it this tour (hardy...har...har...).  I would recommend that no one leave the path alone, especially if you go off looking for Big Foot (aka The Bear Shadow).  Also, be on the lookout for Smurfs (just kidding). :classic:

I would like to take a closer look at these lovely pillars.

I would like to look closer at the entrance archway for any details or clues

This is gonna be great, you know I heard they used to have a pet giant squid on the island that they would feed makak's too. Though it could have been lost in translation, kind of like groundhog day or ghostbusting, well that's enough Bill Murray references for my liking. I would almost consider turning for Bill.

No patience. :sadnew:  I blame all these new-fangled video games and reality TV shows you kids watch now. They're only good for melting your brain, I say.

The guide said the tour would start in half an hour, so I'm guessing the eclipse will happen around that time. Try to enjoy the scenery while you wait.

Really Zachy, if you didn't want to see the ruins I am sure I could have taken the trip myself. Would you help us move this rock? It seems to be really heavy.
