Head for the labs. It might be risky, but you might get some idea what is going on in this place.
It's clear it isn't a prison. So why were you held captive here? And by who? And for how long?

And most importantly, why were you locked in a cell with a monster and just enough means to free yourself? Doesn't it all seem a bit too... Contrived to you?

Are or were you part of the personnel of the place? Or are you a subject like that poor creature? Or are they testing their chances against you or someone like you? Or are they testing you against forces against them or/and you as well?

Not only do we not know where we are, we are also severely unprepared. We could starve or get attacked by wild animals, or worse, it doesn't actually lead anywhere.

Things are thrown out for a reason. We're probably going to find more intact items in the labs rather than the disposal chute.

WHAT THE HECK IS A PUMPKIN!?

The more you think about it the weirder it is. Being able to open the door from the inside probably means that this wasn't supposed to be a prison in the first place. In fact, this place seems like it wasn't meant to keep you in but something out.

And no matter how much you rack your brains you still can't fathom what got you here in the first place. The last thing you remember is that you were in Alva, and the road there is particularly dense with forests and it's not unheard of that some unlucky chump could get snatched up by unsavory folk out there... No, wait, you got in a fight with Xusohin and threatened to talk to the authorities, regardless of the consequences - but what were you two arguing about? You can't recall a thing!

You grimace as the jumbled mess of thoughts in your head makes you dizzy, and steady yourself against the wall. You can't think straight, especially not on an empty stomach like this!

Quote:>Bring the lunchbox with you.

Granted. You bring it with you.

Quote:>Wait! Do you actually hear us? Well, the narrator addresses to us as "you" rather than referring to you as Fitan; made me think we are you. Hello, I guess, Fitan.

"Uh... hello to you too!"
This is the first time you've ever heard the voices talk directly to you. Still, it's good to have some kind of company here however mental it might be.

You enter the labs... or turns out, the office next to the labs. The place smells like chemicals and mildew, a dead crystal tower lies at the center of the room and scrolls are scattered all over.

Your stomach's grumbling reminds you that you haven't eaten in a while now. Desperate to find food you start digging through the closest thing you find... which is this weird mushroom sitting all the way out here in the dark. You're not quite sure if that's edible though...


Quote:>Keep an eye on the warden the bloody note warned you of.

Huh? What? Oh right, you should keep an eye out for that Warden person. You don't think he's anywhere even close though.


Author's Notes:
Spoiler :
Hello there! Sorry for the long delay, we've been hard at work trying out a new style for this update. This place is going to be quite big, so we made sure to take our time planning and drawing this thing.

Also, if you ever want to say hello, you're welcome to drop by at our Discord Channel here!


Please note that we're going to be a bit busy today (October 1) so we might not be able to reply immediately. We'll be happy if you join though! :D

Twelve's Graces, this is foreboding. Whoever wrote this must have been seriously scared for their life. Wardens and Monsters... sheesh, you hope to Clavis you don't encounter either of them. They both sound like bad news.

Do not just mindlessly flee. Instead try taking a couple of steps away and determining just who or what is the thing behind you. It could be the Warden. Or a monster. Or, maybe it's a victim or some sort of security drone. Or perhaps it's an armoured search and rescue soldier.
Try talking to them, maybe they're friendly.

Looks like you're gonna need to, as the cool kids say, "Ollie Outie" before you get decimated.

You rappel as fast as you can up to the second floor but you can't seem to get anywhere!"

Then you hear something heavy clank behind you. What was that?!

GAAAAAAAH!! How did he catch you so quickly! Quick, you have to think of something!

Fitan: "Oof... that's a pretty strong grip. Do you uh... work out? It really shows!"
Warden: "..."
Fitan: "Heh, I thought so... uh, can you let me go now?"
Warden: "..."
