TIME UPDATE

Date: Saturday, October 12th 2008

Weather: Who knows? Who cares!

Events: The set up from yesterday remains the same. Everyone in their own 'space', set out how they want. Computers to north, south, east and west which only connect to one other person. Another computer centrally which can only create private journal entries. (Note: all computers can do things like play music etc).

For player reference, the computers set as follows:-


Stan Scott Jesse Sophie
Jack Kaori Brianna Owen Svetlana
Shane Addison Camber Brett Hannah Will
Jillian Glitch Everett Eris Joy Saj
Posy Adam Cheyenne Dale Leo Lilith
Esme Salem Tobias Ronnie Janie Indira

If your character is on an edge, their computer connects to the person on the opposite side (So, for example, Sophie connects to Stan).

All broken furniture, walls, equipment etc have been repaired overnight. Oh, and Joy's computer equipment has been modified so it is now unbreakable. In fact, if she attempts to destroy it, it will make 'tut tut tut' noises at her for the next five minutes.

However, there is something different today. However a person's area is set out, they no longer have access to food or bathroom facilities. Whether the room was open plan or sectioned off, somehow (up to player discretion) cooking/food and all bathroom facilities can no longer be accessed - but it is clear that these have not actually been removed. What they have been is locked away and however they are locked away it requires an code to access them. Kitchens, bathrooms etc now lurk behind a keypad! There are, of course, almost limitless combinations on a standard numerical keypad and your character is more than free to start trying them!

However, if the central computer is investigated, it will be seen that there is a message there, though it is somewhat cryptic. Each message is different, but yet similar. All the message says is a greeting, a name and then the gift of another name, with a number. That is all.*

(Because we don't particularly fancy typing out every single message, we're giving you the master message and then a reference chart! We're sure you can figure it out!)

The Message

Good morning [character 'ID']. We hope you are well, and you have [Character 'ID name'] [Character 'ID number'] - do with it what you will.

*The number attached to each name is the four-digit combination needed to access food and hygiene facilities in each room. So, for example, Tobias' 'name' for the day is 'Gnaarrgh "Bondage Ninja" the Mostly Rotted'. He knows this. But he doesn't have the number combination for his kitchen and bathroom. Hannah, however, knows that 'Gnaarrgh "Bondage Ninja" the Mostly Rotted' is associated with the number '6881'. She just doesn't know why first thing.

If you have any events or anything going on which you think warrants a mention in the time update, please let us know!

TIME UPDATE

Date: Saturday, October 11th 2008

Weather: Who knows? Who cares!

Events: Things have really changed today! No matter where people went to sleep, they will wake up alone and in bed, but the beds aren't in their rooms. And by 'alone', they're really alone. Each person awakes in a room which is fitted out to be an environment they would be comfortable in. Each room is different, and large - around 30-40ft square. But there are no doors or other exits. The only constant in each room is that there are five computer terminals - one each to the north, south, east and west of the room, and one in the middle somewhere. The exact positioning varies from room to room to fit with the design. The middle computer seems set up for journal entries. Each of the satellite computers are set up for IM/PMs, but investigation shows that there's no choice who these messages go to. In fact, each of the four computers only connects to one other computer, but there's no clue from the set up who that may be!

For player reference, the computers set as follows:-


Stan Scott Jesse Sophie
Jack Kaori Brianna Owen Svetlana Bethany
Shane Addison Camber Brett Hannah Will
Jillian Glitch Everett Eris Joy Saj
Posy Adam Cheyenne Dale Leo Lilith
Esme Salem Tobias Ronnie Janie Indira

If your character is on an edge, their computer connects to the person on the opposite side (So, for example, Sophie connects to Stan).

In character move-rounds, Chris has been removed and Stan enters!

EVENT

Date: Thursday, October 9th 2008

Event: Sometime during the day, it's not clear exactly when, Leah is removed from the town. The clinic remains open, and stocked, but with both doctors having been removed from town today, it's no longer staffed...

After dark, however, Leah's room is filled again - this time by Sophie. As per usual, she awakens in her bed with no knowledge of how she got there. All her belongings are put away in her room. She has not been given any information in regards to the town being abandoned.

TIME UPDATE

Date: Friday, October 10th 2008

Weather: The bright, sunny weather continues. Mostly blue skies, with a smattering of clouds high up in the sky. There's a cold wind today though, so if you're going out, make sure you wrap up warm!

Events: Christmas is clearly over - all the decorations have gone and the houses are back to the way they were a couple of days ago. Just as with every other day this week, everything's reset - people will wake up back in their beds, no matter where they went to sleep; food has been restocked, everything's the same - except that the presents which arrived yesterday will still be wherever they were left the night before.

People are disappearing again though! Jason, Emma, Dave and Lina have been removed overnight with no explanation!

EVENT

Date: Thursday, October 9th 2008

Event: Just as night falls, Glitch awakes in his house, in bed. All his possessions, if any, are already put away. The keys to his property can be found on the kitchen table. He were told yesterday whilst at the facility that he would be being moved to the town, he had, however, been led to believe that he'd be being driven in, rather than going to sleep and waking up having been moved. Has hasn't any knowledge or information about why the town is abandoned, in fact he was led to believe that everything was normal.

TIME UPDATE

Feeling:
busy

Date: Thursday, October 9th 2008

Weather: The snow has finally taken a break! Sometime shortly after midnight, it stops, and clears up. The wind dies down, and the day dawns--actually pretty nicely. It's still below freezing, but just below, the temperatures ranging around 30F. The sun shines brightly, the skies are bright blue and sans clouds. It's a bright, bright, bright sunshiney day.

Events: Every day is Christmas! ...or maybe just today is. Nope. Definitely today is. so either the scientists are very confused, or everyone else is. The entire town is decked out with Christmas cheer, gaudy decorations everywhere, speakers attached to telephone poles and such that are blaring christmas tunes. There's even a set of blinking, plastic anamatronic choir boys and girls along with angels at the church, that sing in time to the music and endlessly go about their mechanical singing, swaying back and forth.

Every house is also decorated up for the holidays, complete with trees in the living rooms, and fixings for feasts in the kitchens. The televisions all day only play christmas movies. There are also presents for everyone! (All the house gifts from yesterday are still in there!):-

Dave - There is a small cream envelope left by the bed, a note inside detailing that a small clinic has been opened at the hospital and this will be kept fully stocked at all times. The clinic consists of five beds in private rooms, two offices and facilities for diagnosis, treatment and care of patients. Attached to the clinic is a small theatre for surgery and a radiology area equipped for x-ray and ultrasound.

Jason and Emma - In their room, there is a small parcel wrapped with gaudy, child-like paper and tied with a large red bow. Inside is a large pile of letters from Jason's sister Maggie. They've clearly been written over a long period of time. Also with the parcel is a small cream envelope informing the couple that there has been a clinic area opened at the hospital with ultrasound facilities.

Adam - a complete new set of carpentry tools in a hand-crafted wooden box. Other than the box, this gift comes with no wrapping.

Eris - Next to her bed is a pile of small presents, all wrapped in gold paper. The presents are all memory aids of some description, including a pocket-sized notebook and pen; a dictaphone for recording messages; and a gold bracelet whith an alarm system set into it set to go off whenever she needs to take medication - there is an audio alarm, plus a small light which has to be manually turned off once the medication has been taken.

Janie - On her pillow, wrapped in silk is a new set of tarot cards. They're all hand painted, and contain familiar figures, people she's known, etc. It's done in the style of someone she once knew in her experiment as well.

Hannah - Gets two large boxes full of brailled sheet music, wrapped and left at the foot of her bed. There are giant pink bows on them!

Everett - Upon waking, he will discover his dresser is lined with expensive, gift wrapped bottles of scotch, and there are several boxes of cigars to go with.

Lina - There's a tool box wrapped up with pretty bows in her room, and a key hanging from the bows. Outside, there's a snowmobile--very top of the line, only it won't start. It needs to be fixed before it can be driven.

Kaori - A filing cabinet appears in her living room, locked, containing her case files, and locked cabinet of medications she formerly had access to is set into the wall. Both have bows on them.

Esme - Esme wakes up with shelves lining her room, with rows upon rows of romance novels. Each one has a tiny bow fixed to the binding.

Joy - Set into one wall of her room is now a mirror, a bar, and all the bottles of alcohol she could ever want. Complete with glasses, and everything else. It's a minibar of a different color.

Indira - In a large, ornately decorated wooden box at the food of her bed, she gets a new set of dance bells, and a wardrobe to go with, all tailored to her perfectly.

Addison - A wooden chest with a bow on it is at the foot of her bed, inside is a complete set of new art supplies.

Shane - In the driveway is his car, a vintage convertible, just how he left it, with everything he'd had inside it when he first entered the experiment. There's a huge red bow on the hood.

Jillian - In a brightly wrapped box with holes cut into it is a puppy, who also has a bow around his neck. Inside are papers that state he's had his shots up to date. Food and toys are in another gift box by the door.

Owen - Set on a wooden guitar stand is a beautiful, top of the line acoustic guitar, and a small jar of picks.

Svetlana - Set into the far end of Svetlana's room is a mirror, with a ballet bar fixed to the wall as well. There is also a small stereo that plays music compatible with her tastes to dance to. In a box on the floor is a new ballet outfit, with shoes, all tailored to her perfectly.

Tobias - In a box wrapped with black wrapping paper and white ribbons are all of his pictures and videos of Jenny. He also has been given a new poloroid camera with a large stock of film for it, and a new video camera that's top of the line.

Will - In a nicely wrapped box on his dresser is a bundle of letters from his sister, written over the past few months.

Leo -In the centre of his room is a pile of pots of paints in his favourite colours, plus rollers and brushes to redecorate his room. There are also several parcels wrapped in silver crepe - new bedding to match the colours for the walls, together with framed prints of various locations around the world for him to hang on his walls.

Dale - Set into the corner of her room is a way to patch into the radio station from her room. It's got all the state of the art equipment, a very large music selection she can choose from (though today, all that will play is christmas music) etc.

Leah - There is a small cream envelope left by the bed, a note inside detailing that a small clinic has been opened at the hospital and this will be kept fully stocked at all times. The clinic consists of five beds in private rooms, two offices and facilities for diagnosis, treatment and care of patients. Attached to the clinic is a small theatre for surgery and a radiology area equipped for x-ray and ultrasound. Leah also receives a small box containing refills of her medication.

Brett - Sitting with a red ribbon on one of the handles is a brand new wheelchair. It's completely fixed up to suit him specifically, is top of the line, with compartments, it's own kit that fits into it's own compartment, wheels that can handle a lot of different terrains, etc.

Cheyenne - In a huge, ornate trunk set at the foot of her bed, is a print out of every photograph she has taken since joining the experiment. They're all in 8x10 form, full color(save for those she deliberately took in black and white), and in perfect clarity. She also has a few boxes of new memory cards for her camera, and discs with all the pictures she's taken on them.

Lilith - By the side of Lilith's bed there is a small, ornate wooden chest, intricately carved with patterns. Inside there are a selection of blindfolds in a variety of colours and materials. Also all the foodstuffs in her house are labelled with Braille (though this does not include doors, rooms, cupboards - just the food around).

Veronica - In a nicely wrapped scrap book style photo album, there are current pictures of her daughter, during the past few months. She is smiling and happy, though it is impossible to tell who she's with or where the photographs were taken.

Cam - An iPod stocked with music of her tastes is wrapped up and left on her dresser, as well as a brand new bass guitar that's put on a stand near the bed. Everything she needs to go with it is in a wrapped box at the foot of the bed.

Brianna - A red wrapped box with holes cut into it holds a kitten, placed at the foot of Brianna's bed. The kitten matches the description she gave the scientists. Food, toys and litter are in another gift box by the door.

Saj - Sitting by the door of his room is a largish box, about the size of a big shoebox. This is wrapped up in bright red paper, with little pictures of puppies on it, and tied with a big green bow. Inside there are over a hundred of CDs, none of them labelled at all. They are all identical in appearance and most of them play music that is of Saj's taste. There is one CD, however which, though it looks exactly the same as the rest, when played instead of music plays what seems to be a bad quality recording of an conversation involving Carly. The sound quality on this is awful and it's not always clear what's being said. There are no details about where she is, or what she's been doing, but she sounds healthy and a date is mentioned, suggesting the recording is recent. It is not clear from the recording who she is talking to.

Scott - It may take Scott a while to get to his present, but on returning to his room, he will find an envelop containing a Christmas card. Inside the card is simply written 07789 - the garage. The garage at 2 Oakdale can now only be accessed by an inner door, which is accessed by use of a keypad. The comination is that which was written in the card. Inside, the garage has now been fitted out as a fully-equipped gym.

Jesse - In a leather bound, old style photo album, there are current pictures of his daughter, during the past few months. She is smiling and happy, though it is impossible to tell who she's with or where the photographs were taken.

Chris- There is a new addition to Chris' room - a new computer. This is on when Chris wakes, but the screen is dark, save for a simple typed message in white. The message reads look. If Chris accesses the computer, she will find that he has access to certain CCTV cameras around town. Currently, these cameras are only the hallways, kitchens and living room of each group house, plus an overview of the park and the area outside the town hall. There is a blinking light in the top righthand corner of the screen. If he clicks on this, it will bring up a small message box telling him who currently has access to this system. At the moment, there is only one name on the list: Posy.

Bethany - Bethany's entire room has been redecorated in a wolf-theme. The curtains, bedspread, even figurines have been added into the room, and a life sized stuffed animal wolf left on the foot of her bed with a bow around it's neck.

Jack - Inside a large box at the foot of his bed is a huge photo album, that contains all of the photographs from his old photo album--as well as new photos, up to date ones(and including the time since he got here) of his family/friends/etc. It also includes photographs that are older that he has never seen before.

Posy - There is a new addition to Posy's room - a new computer. This is on when Posy wakes, but the screen is dark, save for a simple typed message in white. The message reads look. If Posy accesses the computer, she will find that she has access to certain CCTV cameras around town. Currently, these cameras are only the hallways, kitchens and living room of each group house, plus an overview of the park and the area outside the town hall. There is a blinking light in the top righthand corner of the screen. If she clicks on this, it will bring up a small message box telling her who currently has access to this system. At the moment, there is only one name on the list: Chris.

There are people missing from rooms as well! Ben, sometime during the night, has been removed, Veronica put in his place. Trent has also been removed, Penny too. Furthermore, Scott appears to be missing from his room!

At 8am precisely, an alarm goes off in every group home, playing overly-cheerful Christmas tunes to get everyone up and about. A message in a prominent position in each house recommends that people should hurry to the town hall to see the Christmas decorations!

The 'Christmas Decorations' are a large Christmas tree, all hung over with lights and tinsel and decorated with sleigh bells. There seems to be a whole sleighbell theme, in fact - and the centre-piece is Scott, who has been tied to the foot of the Christmas tree, naked save for the fact that he his highly decorated with sleighbells all over his body (though not in a particularly concealing manner). He's also been given makeup, some glitter, a halo of tinsel and has a pair of feathered wings strapped to his back.

The households are as follows:
Leah, Scott, Saj and Will staying at 2 Oakdale Drive

Adam, Veronica, Cheyenne and Tobias staying at 10 Park Road

Shane, Jillian, Lilith and Jack staying at 2 Short Street

Lina, Dave, Kaori and Svetlana staying at 3 Oakdale Drive

Jason, Emma, Dale, Leo and Esme staying at 2 Maple Street

Chris, Bethany, Jesse, Joy and Owen staying at 1 Maple Street

Brianna, Cam, Janie, Addison and Indira staying at 9 Park Road

Everett, Brett, Hannah, Posy and Eris staying at the Vicarage

Same drill, people wake up in their rooms in their new places, pretty much exactly as they have been the past few nights.

If you have any events or anything going on which you think warrants a mention in the time update, please let us know!

TIME UPDATE

Date: Wednesday, October 8th 2008

Weather: The snowstorm continues and the lying snow is now a good couple of feet deep, but the storm itself died down a little in the early hours of the morning and isn't as bad as it was yesterday. A very determined person could probably leave the house today - they just shouldn't plan on going very far!

Events: What a surprise - it's groundhog day again! Today dawns exactly the same as yesterday, and the day before. Meaning everything that was moved is exactly where it had been the day before. Anyone who hopped households, or rooms is right back where they started. Everything down to the placement of items in the rooms in the houses has been re-set. Food has been re-stocked. The only changes are to people in some households - There are some new additions in the form of Jesse, Leo and Cheyenne.

The households are as follows:
Leah, Trent, Scott, Saj and Will staying at 2 Oakdale Drive

Ben, Adam, Cheyenne and Tobias staying at 10 Park Road

Shane, Jillian, Penny and Jack staying at 2 Short Street

Lina, Dave, Kaori and Svetlana staying at 3 Oakdale Drive

Jason, Emma, Dale, Leo and Esme staying at 2 Maple Street

Chris, Bethany, Jesse, Joy and Owen staying at 1 Maple Street

Brianna, Cam, Janie, Addison and Indira staying at 9 Park Road

Everett, Brett, Hannah, Posy and Eris staying at the Vicarage

Again, no one will have any memory of being moved, they will only recall falling asleep last night wherever they went to lie down.

The rest of the town is still boarded up tight. All other houses are locked up tight, and anyone wanting to get inside may have to resort to use of a chainsaw or two. All public buildings are the same, and the power seems to be out in them as well.

All public buildings are completely emptied. Stores, the rec center, the hospital, the bowling alley, everything, it's all emptied out.

One thing is different though! Each group house has a 'gift' of sorts sitting in the centre of the hall. Each is a large, plain, cardboard box - closed and without any note on it. There is one box per household and each is different. The contents of the boxes are as follows:-

2 Oakdale Drive - A selection of instruments: a couple of recorders; a xylophone; a triangle; a pair of maracas and some sleighbells. There is also a pile of sheet music scored for these instruments.

10 Park Road - A large, ornate puppet theatre with six creepy, hand painted marrionettes. The set up includes several different changes of scenery and a small, hand cranked street organ.

2 Short Street - A pile of school primers from the 1940s, covering basics of alphabet, grammar and mathematics. Also a pile of slates for writing on and a supply of chalk. Furthermore, there are several pots of black ink and six nib-fill fountain pens together with a half dozen hardback journals filled with rich, cream paper.

3 Oakdale Drive - A selection box of old children's toys, including a half dozen china dolls, five Barbies and a Ken doll (with various outfits), a dozen My Little Ponies, three water pistols, a giant box of Lego and a wind up cymbal-chiming monkey.

2 Maple Street - An ark and a large selection of stuffed toy animals. There are, of course, two of each type. All the animals fit inside the ark, but only by dint of much stuffing of them in there! There are no mythical creatures amongst the toys (ie, you're not going to find anything like a unicorn in there).

1 Maple Street - A large piece-assembly 00-guage electric train set, with enough track to run round the whole house if people want to set it up, complete with all necessary signals, bridges etc and with several different complete trains and carriages and little track-side additions, such as train-workers, passengers, animals, trees etc.

9 Park Road - A box of various costumes, all from different eras and in different sizes (though all costumes will fit at least one member of the household). The costumes are all in perfect condition and include shoes, hates and all necessary accessories.

The Vicarage - A dolls house which is a perfect scale model of the vicarage, only in the model, the building isn't falling down and is beautifully decorated in rich tones and hues, thick carpets and velvet curtains. The furniture in each room is also beautifully done and the dolls representing the occupants, though resembling the current occupants, are all dressed in an old fashioned style (a la US civil war era).

If you have any events or anything going on which you think warrants a mention in the time update, please let us know!

TIME UPDATE

Date: Tuesday, October 7th 2008

Weather: Hello, nasty, kicked up insane snowstorm. The power flickers on and off all day, sometimes going out for half an hour at a time(though oddly, the computers seem to be on their own power source, and never go down). Outside the wind is howling, the snow is raging, and even seeing across the street is difficult. Woah nelly, is there a world of cold, snowy doom outside. Travel anywhere isn't advised, and is in fact, very difficult.

Events: It must be groundhog day! Today dawns exactly the same as yesterday. Meaning everything that was moved is exactly where it had been the day before. Anyone who hopped households is right back where they started. Everything down to the placement of items in the rooms in the houses has been re-set. Food has been re-stocked. The only changes are to people in some households. Drew and Jeremy have been removed from the house they were staying at over night, and instead Joy has been put into Jeremy's old room. Trevor has also disappeared overnight.

The households are as follows:
Leah, Trent, Scott, Saj and Will staying at 2 Oakdale Drive

Ben, Adam and Tobias staying at 10 Park Road

Shane, Jillian, Penny and Jack staying at 2 Short Street

Lina, Dave, Kaori and Svetlana staying at 3 Oakdale Drive

Jason, Emma, Dale and Esme staying at 2 Maple Street

Chris, Bethany, Joy and Owen staying at 1 Maple Street

Brianna, Cam, Janie, Addison and Indira staying at 9 Park Road

Everett, Brett, Hannah, Posy and Eris staying at the Vicarage

Again, no one will have any memory of being moved, they will only recall falling asleep last night wherever they went to lie down.

The rest of the town is still boarded up tight. All other houses are locked up tight, and anyone wanting to get inside may have to resort to use of a chainsaw or two. All public buildings are the same, and the power seems to be out in them as well.

All public buildings are completely emptied. Stores, the rec center, the bowling alley, everything, it's all emptied out.

If you have any events or anything going on which you think warrants a mention in the time update, please let us know!

TIME UPDATE

Date: Monday, October 6th 2008

Weather: Today dawns cold. The wet from yesterday has turned into a biting frost, and the cloudy skies threaten snow. The actual storm doesn't hit until late evening, around 7pm, but it snows heavily for the rest of the night, into the next morning. Power flickerings continue, blacking out only for a few minutes at a time after the snow starts, but it never stays off for longer than six minutes.

Events: Residents of the town today wake up to very strange circumstances. It seems that overnight, everyone was moved! Not only have they been moved, but they've been grouped together in large houses.

The groups are as follows:
Leah, Trent, Scott, Saj and Will staying at 2 Oakdale Drive

Ben, Adam, Trevor and Tobias staying at 10 Park Road

Shane, Jillian, Penny and Jack staying at 2 Short Street

Lina, Dave, Kaori and Svetlana staying at 3 Oakdale Drive

Jason, Emma, Dale and Esme staying at 2 Maple Street

Chris, Bethany, Drew, Jeremy and Owen staying at 1 Maple Street

Brianna, Cam, Janie, Addison and Indira staying at 9 Park Road

Everett, Brett, Hannah, Posy and Eris staying at the Vicarage

No one will have any memory of being moved, they will only recall falling asleep last night wherever they went to lie down. Clothes and toiletries have been moved with everyone, and seems to be nicely put away in the rooms that have been chosen for them. There is no word on why this was done.

The rest of the town has been boarded up tight. All other houses are locked up tight, and anyone wanting to get inside may have to resort to use of a chainsaw or two. All public buildings are the same. The houses are stocked with fresh food.

All public buildings are completely emptied. Stores, the rec center, the bowling alley, everything, it's all emptied out.

If you have any events or anything going on which you think warrants a mention in the time update, please let us know!

TIME UPDATE

Date: Sunday, October 5th 2008

Weather: The rain has stopped, but the town is generally damp and cold all day. It's cloudy and dull and generally a depressing atmosphere. The winds pick up during the morning and there's high winds from mid-morning and throughout the rest of the day. The power starts to flicker at around midday and this also continues, though there are no actual blackouts.

Events:

There has been another round of comings and goings. Hadley, Cheryl and Brody have disappeared from town, whilst Kaori, Esme, Tobias, Emily and Saj wake up in bed in their respective houses having been told the day before that they would be being moved into the town. They had, however, each been led to believe that they'd be being driven in this morning, rather than going to sleep and waking up having been moved. None has any knowledge or information about why the town is abandoned, in fact they were led to believe that everything was normal. Esme's home has been set up to cater to her needs.

Supplies reach rock bottom today. Any store which held food has been completely gutted and even the snack food from the other stores has been taken where possible.

There are no messages for anyone at all today - in fact, on that front, everything has fallen very quiet.

If you have any events or anything going on which you think warrants a mention in the time update, please let us know!
