DUCKSWAP: VERSE ONE
[Image: gV53an3.jpg]

A young drake waits in their SLEEPCUBICLE. Though they were born some 12,000 aquatic cycles ago (1,000 aquatic cycles equals approximately one earth year) today is the day that they will be evaluated by the COUNCIL OF THE ELDER MALLARDS. Only the COUNCIL OF THE ELDER MALLARDS can judge whether this young drake should be accepted to join THE FLOCK or else be cast out into the DRY WASTES beyond the HOLY POND and a new fresh young drake should be brought in as REPLACEMENT. (They might even deign to give our young drake protagonist a NAME.)

In this section of the story you the reader play the role of the COUNCIL OF THE ELDER MALLARDS. So tell me esteemed COUNCILLORS, should we SWAP this DUCK?

One COUNCIL MEMBER summons into existence a REALITY WARPING PRESENCE. The RWP is promptly escorting from the HOLY POND for CRIMES against EASE OF DRAWING and thus once again it falls to the COUNCIL OF ELDER MALLARDS to pluck a duck from the AETHER that is imagination.

Yeah, swap the reality-warped duck for the duckdoodle on the wall

A DEBATE rages in THE COUNCIL OF THE ELDER MALLARDS. Eventually faced with an OVERWHELMING MAJORITY the CHAIRDRAKE against their BETTER JUDGMENT is forced to conjure the PHYSICAL MANIFESTATION OF THE GROBBLER into EXISTENCE.

You pretend that the 'WORMS' are CLUES that you are dutifully gathering in order to learn enough to defeat THE GROBBLER. In reality the only things down at the bottom of this TRASH BIN POND are DISCARDED JUNK FOOD WRAPPERS and CRUMPLED UP DOODLES OF YOU DEFEATING THE GROBBLER.

Before you can get out there and turn your FANCIFUL DOODLES into TRIUMPHANT REALITY, you will probably need to know a little more about THE GROBBLER than its name. And where better to learn than ONLINE? You turn your attention to your computer. AX is messaging you again. AX was always kind of creepy and not much fun to talk to but he's become especially so since he was GROBBLED.

You log onto THE DARKPOND and read up on recent news. Here in LOWER BEAKFORD there hasn't been a confirmed sighting of THE GROBBLER in the last couple of months. Several options on how to learn more about THE GROBBLER present themselves to you:
  • If anyone is an expert on THE GROBBLER it is ADMIN RAZORDOWN. You could try to message her and find out if she has any useful information for you.
  • Firsthand interactions with THE GROBBLED may give you some insight into the process of GROBBLING. You could try to find LOCAL INFECTED or if you don't mind a little travel perhaps visiting one of your GROBBLED FRIENDS would be less suspicious.
  • You dimly recall the ROYAL STORYTELLER reading you THE FAIRY TAIL OF THE GROBBLER when you were a HATCHLING. Further research into the FAIRY TAIL may reveal more information. You know for a fact that the books containing the FAIRY TAIL have become something of a RARITY recently, though you would bet that THE UTOPIAN ISLES PALACE (your FORMER HOME) still has a copy. Going home would be RISKY though and perhaps it would be easier to try local libraries and bookshops and hope you get LUCKY.

Take a peek out of the alleyway and see if you spot anyone who's been grobbled. Approach and ask how they are feeling since being grobbled.

Attempt to commune with AX by copy/pasting their own messages and replacing your name with his own
