Next deadline: Friday
And just like that, everything had ended.
“If that is what you think, you are foolish.”
As everyone opened their eyes, as if waking from a dream, they felt very out of it. Before them stretched what looked like a cheesy Halloween amusement park, with cardboard ghosts and gremlins sticking out of the ground and various hatted figures running around, laughing like children.
A tiny floating man greeted them.
By man, of course, it was a two or so foot tall figure with a hat for a face floating in the air, bobbing up and down with its arms stretched out. Its colors seemed welcoming, but off in hue, and the longer everyone stared, the more they had a nagging feeling that this thing w-
“Welcome, children,” the figure squeaked in an entirely non-threatening pitch, “To a very special carnival. No, you’re not dead, and no, no this isn’t the end- but the end is in fact coming soon, that’s exactly why you’re here. In a sense, I’m rewarding you all, for living your lives! How often do you just get to celebrate life? After the carnival is over, you will all be returned to your normal lives…
This carnival is to prepare you all for the end, which is inevitable. As you may or may not have noticed, all of your faces are covered by hats, so you had no way of knowing who is who in this special place. Let go of your life, and enjoy yourselves! Admission is free, the ticket booth is up ahead… and just… remember how valuable your lives really are!”
The figure floated away, and the completely confused group decided to fumble through the ticket booth. Unlike normal ticket booths, which would’ve charged admission and given you a single ticket booth, this ticket booth seemed to award everyone a different number of tickets. The number of tickets were as follows:
Dann Tuggles 6
Mike Burns 7
Golem Architect 6
Apparently, the number of tickets they received were somehow related to the number of /s they had, whatever that meant.
The whole park was very, very disorienting. It immediately felt like you were lost, so as a group everyone decided to stumble over to the map. According to map, the following activities were available, in order of increasing “fun” – which was written in a way that clearly looked like blood, and may or may not have actually just been blood on the sign.
