    Let's focus on my seeming attacker for now, shall we? Turn to face them. Keep a tight grip on my items. The spider will still be in there when I'm done with them.

    Can't speak, moth infection stage I

    You turn around and see the man from the shack, except warped and twisted into a grotesque form. His arms and legs have been replaced by 10 meter tentacles, his head is gone, and a huge hole is torn in his shirt, where there is now a hole that looks like the mouth of a squid. A really big squid. You take all this in within a second, and before another has passed, another loud whoosh fills your ears and a tentacle is swinging towards you from the right!

    "I will explain it all shortly, but first we must wipe the server before Erelect realizes what has happened." The women pulls back the sleeve of her shirt to reveal a plethora of white bracelets, each with black buttons on them, all with a small strip of coloured duct tape with writing on them. She presses a bracelets button, and the cave melts away. You are now in a white room with a large human sized tube in the centre, that looks sort of like an MRI. but with clamps everywhere for strapping someone in. "Please step in to the chamber and lie down. The clamps will automatically close on you when the machine feels weight on the sensor pad at your head, so be sure that the rest of your body is in place before you put your head down."

    Oh yeah and about the jungle scene: I decided it might actually fit in better later, so I've postponed it for now.

    You thread your way through the maze of boxes to the door so you can look outside, but it won't open, and you hear the rattling of a deadbolt from the outside It looks pretty flimsy though, it's just wood, so you could probably just knock it down.

    Duck under the tentacle, then stab it with the knife when it's above me. Quickly pull out the knife afterwards so it doesn't take it or anything.

    As soon as you you duck and it realizes that it's tentacle would no longer strike you, it immediately retracts it and sends another one at you, lower this time. It seems like it has instantaneous reflexes.

    Your moth infection will move to stage II in two turns.

    You bash down the door, and manage to get through, but your shoulder hurts from where you banged it. -5 health

    On the other side of the door is a busy kitchen, the metal clanging was from all the pots, pans, and knives, and the voices were from the servers and patrons. However, just seconds after you break through, everything goes silent, and everyone stares at you. A cook stops half way up the flipping of a pancake, and many of the customers stop mid sentence, to just stare at you. A woman walking her dog outside the shop on the street, stops too, and stares through the window at you, and the dog presses its nose to the glass and does the same.

    Left arm injured (Healed 0/10)

    You lie down in the tube, and the clamps shut on you. You hear the machine charging up, hear a loud zap, and feel something stabbing into the back of your head. You scream and spasm as the machine courses electricity through your body, and you now realize why there are clamps for your limbs. Then it stops, the thing pulls out of your head, and nothing hurts anymore. There is no residual stinging or aches, in fact it feels as if a weight has been lifted from your shoulders. Unfortunately however, this does count as strenuous activity, so your arm healing resets, and you take 15 damage form the process. Also, choose one of these options.
    • You forget everything that happened in the city
    • You forget everything that happened in the jungle
    • You forget everything that happened in the cave
    • You take another 10 damage

    You catch it by surprise, it wasn't expecting such aggressive tactics, and get about half way to it, then the beast tries to hit you straight on, 5 tentacles in a spike formation are headed right for your stomach.

    Your moth infection will move to stage II next turn.

    The people just keep staring at you, and start to feel uneasy. You pass one of the customers eating and you expect him to have to move to continue looking at you, but instead his neck just twists a full 180º. When you get out on the street. You find that there is a wall of blackness just outside the cafe. All that exists in this world is the cafe. The sidewalk, and a pet shop to the left of the cafe. As you're looking around outside, you catch a woman's eye and notice that her eyes have turned orange, and are growing larger, starting to look like a bug's.

    (There is really no way to get your health back. That's kind of the "gimmick" that makes this game unique: There's no way to heal.)

    The woman notices your exasperated look when your arm starts hurting again, and you inadvertently start to rub it, hoping that will somehow numb the pain. "If you are what I think you are, you'll soon be able to heal that arm with a snap of your fingers. Come now, let us talk. I am sure you are very curious about all this." She presses another button on one of her armbands, and the room changes to a another bland white room, however this one contains a table and two chairs. She sits and invites you to do the same.

    Throw one of the flares straight at the tentacles. It should do some damage, if I'm understanding the flares correctly.

    You hurt yourself badly, the wall has some sort of crazy magic zapping defence, but you see a white crack form...

    Choose 2:
    • Take 10 damage
    • Take 20 damage
    • Lose sight out of one eye (Also losing depth perception)

    As soon as the flare hits one of the tentacles, it instantly catches on fire, along with the other four. The fire spreads rapidly, and all five tentacles are destroyed. Presently, the flare fizzles out, but not before doing some significant damage. You see some indecision in the things eyes, as it weighs its choices. Continue fighting for this great snack, or give up now and cut it's losses. This pause is just what you need! You quickly...

    Just as you have this great success, your moth infection reaches the second of three stages. You feel a burning in your throat, it's hard to breath, and you take a random 1-5 damage each turn, changed to 0-5 because of your Lucky trait. This turn, you took 3 damage. Because of the difficulty breathing, any strenuous activity that causes increased breathing speed, will deal 5 damage to you. Like battling a tentacled beast. 5 more damage.

    You get right up close to it and slam another flare into its gaping orifice. You see the flare disappear down its gaping maw, and it convulses, then collapses and turns to dust.

    "Chosen one!" She laughs "If you like. You have the potential to posses some powerful abilities. But let me start at the beginning, this is going to be a long story, so get comfortable." You settle into your seat, which molds itself to your body type as you sink into it, then she continues. "Erelect is a company in a... different world who created an extremely high tech VR experience. They planned to release their new product, the first application of which was going to be an extremely difficult, fully immersive game. Now this may seem shocking to you, but... you are playing that game right now."

    How do you react to this world changing piece of information? Remember, your memory was completely wiped, everything is hazy before you woke up in the street, so long ago.

    "Calm down Robert! I will explain it all." Seeing your confusion when she says Robert, she amends her statement. "Of course... You don't remember your name. It was Robert. Robert McAndrew." She let's that sink in for a few seconds. "Now, how long do you think you've been here, in this world? An hour? A day? More? Less? I bet that you don't expect the answer to be 5 weeks, but that is the truth. The main drawback of Erelects technology is that you spend much less time in the simulated world than the real world, that's why they haven't released their technology to the general public yet. Who would want to wast months of their life to play a video game? Only the richest could even afford the product, and only a tiny fraction of those would be willing to play." You look confused, panicked, and even a bit angry, so she tries to calm you down. "How bout I let you decide what I explain next hmm? What do you want to know?"

    "Whoa, whoa, slow down there! One at a time! Yes, you signed up to be a "human lab rat", though I'm sure that's not how they described it. Probably made it out to be some premium experience of cutting edge technology, but now you know the truth. And in answer to your last question, I am neither. I am a player like you. A long time ago a glitch in the system told one of the play testers from ages past about what's really happening, then they passed it on to one of the next play testers, and so on and so forth, until we get down to me telling you. However, my goal is different. I want to tell many play testers, and spread the word far and wide, which is why I learned how to hack the World, and now I want to teach you too."

    "Preferably sooner rather than later, remember, just this conversation took about 2 hours out there in the real world. But before we begin, you should know that there are a few things we can't hack. We can't get people's health to increase, nor have we figured out a way to exit the game, meaning all of us are stuck here indefinitely. Now, time for a crash course in hacking." She presses a button on the wall you hadn't noticed before, and the table from before, as well as her chair, slides back to become a desk. You yourself get your own, smaller desk as well. A large panel that looks like a whiteboard slides out from the wall, but no markers.
