welcome to mayfield: day 2



[Day two of whatever this place is dawns bright and cheerful. Not much seems to have changed; the carnival is still standing, the town still empty of drones, the sky still bright blue and --

-- hang on, what was that? Did some sort of crack just appear in that patch of sky?

...oh, it's gone now. Must have just been your imagination. Anyway, there's no time to waste staring aimlessly at the sky, not when there's more friends showing up! Lucky there's more than enough food to go around, eh?]


OOC: If your character damages or affects the carnival or town in a noticeable and normally permanent way, please comment here.

OPEN! If your character was on the list of characters arriving on Day 1 or Day 2, they may comment here. All questions belong here.

Whoa, wait, hold on a sec—giant rats?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-04 02:57 am (UTC)(link)
That's right. You might see some around, but there's more of them once the sun sets. They can be a little dangerous.
walking_nuke: Staring right through you. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Neutral ▱ Dazed)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-04 03:05 am (UTC)(link)
How big of giant rats're we talkin'ere?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-04 02:04 pm (UTC)(link)
About the size of small dogs.
walking_nuke: Does Balin Wilbur have to nuke a bitch? (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Angry ▱ Gritting Teeth)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-07 05:15 am (UTC)(link)
[... Okay, that's not too giant, but that's still pretty damn monstrous for rats.]

What'd'ey do, grab a bunch from New York's sewers or somethin'?

[Though at least he's got his body armor back. Won't have to worry about having something gnawing off his feet all of a sudden—right?]

Is everyone usin'a Church to camp out'en? Not'a houses?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-07 02:30 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't know. They're not that dangerous except at night. Most people have been eating them to survive since the carnival food isn't any good. And I can't really speak for anyone else, but I've been using the church and it's been fine so far. I've only been inside one of the houses, and it's pretty much empty.
walking_nuke: Now I'm just confused at a higher level. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Headtilt ▱ Unsure)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-08 04:15 am (UTC)(link)
Huh.

[Balin nods in acknowledgement. Thinking of the Church, though, Balin can't help but wonder if Ciel's wound up here, and what she might do in a situation like this.]

I'm used to livin' offa bad rations, but what's up with'a carnival food'ere? Is it still givin' people'a runs like before?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-08 05:25 am (UTC)(link)
It's not real food. You can eat as much as you want, but it doesn't actually fill you up.
walking_nuke: (Surprised)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-08 06:08 am (UTC)(link)
Like it's holographic or somethin'?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-08 02:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Something. I'm not sure.
walking_nuke: Eh, I've seen worse'an'is. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Dismissive ▱ Looking Up)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-10 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
[Balin glances back up at the sky, and the white fog in particular.]

... Boy I'm startin' to wonder about'is place.

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-10 11:44 am (UTC)(link)
It's definitely dangerous. That's all we really know right now.
walking_nuke: No, the easy way is ALWAYS mined. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Neutral ▱ Listening)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-12 07:05 am (UTC)(link)
So far, it ain't any worse'an'a shit'ey've pulled on us before.

[Not that Balin looks comfortable with this prospect at all.]

You heard about'a theory a lotta people have about'is place, yeah? I mean Mayfield entirely, not just'is carnival.
walking_nuke: (This is what my recruit gun looked like)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-12 02:43 pm (UTC)(link)
That it's a virtual reality sim.

[A beat passes, then Balin adds—]

You, uh, you come from a time when computers were big, yeah? You'd know about stuff like'at?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-12 04:24 pm (UTC)(link)
A little, yeah.

[He's from the mid-1980s.]
walking_nuke: Eh, I've seen worse'an'is. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Dismissive ▱ Looking Up)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-12 05:35 pm (UTC)(link)
There's a lotta signs. Shit'at don't make sense unless you're lookin' at it like a computer program. Like'a way'a town loops. Just like an old arcade game.

An'en'ere's been things like'a drones actin' weird when'ey cut power to'a town. Actin' like robots'at were glitching or ... something.

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-12 07:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Hmm... you've got a point there.
walking_nuke: Or the glove's just chafing me again. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Looking ▱ Preparing)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-12 11:43 pm (UTC)(link)
An' if you think about it, we got people in town who got some hardcore powers. I ran into freakin' Gilgamesh'ere, said he was summoned for some kinda tournament between heroes.

This one time when'a town was pumped full of'is truth gas shit, he was boastin' about havin' a sword'at caused Earth's continental drift. Never heard of him gettin' outta here.

[Balin pauses, staring a little hard toward the fog in the distance. That happened back around the 14th of July. In a week or two, he'll have been here a full year ...]

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-13 01:09 am (UTC)(link)
Gilgamesh? He was here?
walking_nuke: No, the easy way is ALWAYS mined. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Neutral ▱ Listening)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-13 01:11 am (UTC)(link)
[Balin's attention sharply turns back to Kariya. He wasn't expecting a reaction like that. Which means ...]

Yeah. You know 'em?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-13 02:11 am (UTC)(link)
...Maybe. Did he have golden armor and red eyes and call himself the King of Heroes?
walking_nuke: Now I'm just confused at a higher level. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Headtilt ▱ Unsure)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-13 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
[Balin blinks and looks a little unsure before he responds.]

Well—he had'a red eyes. An'is spiky golden hair.

[Gesturing with his hand as he says that.]

Thing is, he was usually a kid. Said he's got'is potion of youth'at did it. Never saw 'em wearin' golden armor, even'a one time he was his usual self.

But yeah, far as I know? He's'at Gilgamesh. "Hero King of Uruk." Said he goes by Archer 'cause of'a rules of'at tournament, but all I ever seen 'em shoot was swords.

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-13 02:58 am (UTC)(link)
Archer. I knew it. Though he was a full grown adult when I saw him.
walking_nuke: Ready and waiting. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Neutral ▱ Looking)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-13 03:33 am (UTC)(link)
You got somethin' to do with'at tournament he was talkin' about'en?
