welcome to mayfield: day 1



[As you step out of the funhouse, blinking against the strong sunlight, it may seem at first that you've wound up back where you started. The carnival with all of its joys and wonders still stands, the Ferris Wheel looming majestically over Mayfield...

...except, did it always look that new and shiny? And it's not the only thing that got a makeover either; it seems like everything in the carnival has been fixed up from its previously rundown state. Fresh coats of paint gleam from every stand and every ride, and there isn't a spot of rust or a broken board anywhere in sight. At the entrance of the carnival hangs a large banner that reads:

Welcome to Mayfield - the Happiest Town on Earth!


Just how long were you exploring the funhouse for, anyway?

And as you start taking in the changes, you may notice one other minor difference: there are no drones to be found anywhere. It seems like the only other living beings in this place are your fellow townspeople who also entered the funhouse...well, that and the large, vicious looking rats that scurry around from place to place. But don't worry, there aren't that many of them and they only come out at night! So go ahead and enjoy having the carnival all to yourselves; after all, with all those minor safety issues fixed up, what could possibly go wrong?

The back exit of the carnival leads to a small street with four standard Mayfield houses and its church at the end. Attempting to leave the carnival via the entrance (although we can't imagine why you would) will only wind up looping you to the end of this street. Where the rest of Mayfield has gone, well...who can say?]


OOC and extra information about this town can be found here - please read it before you start tagging! Remember, only those in the first group should be in this post!

WOW SORRY FOR SUPER LATENESS

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-12 02:51 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah seriously.

Still.

Super creepy.

It's okay I'm fine with it

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-12 04:09 am (UTC)(link)
So far I see no immediate threats, so I believe this place is less "spooky" than the ordinary Mayfield.
fasterthan: (hey! listen!)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-12 07:49 pm (UTC)(link)
[He shrugs.]

Well see, that's the problem. It seems nice and perfect, and that's exactly why I don't trust it.

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-12 08:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Perhaps it simply creates more perfect constructs because there are fewer of them.
fasterthan: (I'm not so sure about this)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-13 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
So all the energy it didn't use on people and stuff it put into the rides? Is that what you're saying?
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-13 01:39 am (UTC)(link)
Something like that.
fasterthan: (pout)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-14 10:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Could be, I guess.

[He scratches his head.]

What kind of energy do you think we're talking about here?
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-14 10:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe something magical. Or maybe it is not energy. Maybe it is the concentration of this reality warper?
fasterthan: (this ain't gonna be pretty)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-14 10:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah that makes sense. I've been through something like that before, actually. In that case it was this kid with crazy psychic powers.
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-14 10:11 pm (UTC)(link)
Really? An esper could warp reality itself?
fasterthan: (I'm not so sure about this)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-14 10:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Sort of? I dunno, we never really figured out if he was actually warping reality or just what we were seeing, you know?
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-14 10:22 pm (UTC)(link)
So do you think it can also apply here? Are we just under some sort of mass hypnosis?
fasterthan: (concerned about you)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-14 10:53 pm (UTC)(link)
[He shrugs.]

Maybe. I mean everybody's got theories, you know? That's really all I've got right now.
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-14 11:00 pm (UTC)(link)
I suppose we will know once we find some way to contact the "outside" world.
fasterthan: (this ain't gonna be pretty)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-15 12:21 am (UTC)(link)
Hopefully. That may be the only way.
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-15 12:23 am (UTC)(link)
Do any of the communication devices here work? Besides the tape recorders?
fasterthan: (concerned about you)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-15 12:25 am (UTC)(link)
I don't think so.
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-15 12:38 am (UTC)(link)
Then we have no way of proving any theory, not unless someone from Mayfield comes here or if someone is able to return to Mayfield.
fasterthan: (this ain't gonna be pretty)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-15 12:50 am (UTC)(link)
Right. And even then we probably can't be sure about what's happening until we figure out what the deal with Mayfield is.
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-15 12:55 am (UTC)(link)
From what I know, it does have mechanisms that can be damaged and destroyed. So I would have to say it is some form of human science. And yet the abilities the town shows seem to be tied in to magic.
fasterthan: (FACEPALM)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-15 12:56 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, it's all weird.

Hey, I don't think I caught your name.
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-15 12:56 am (UTC)(link)
Bazett Fraga McRemitz. And yours?
fasterthan: (Default)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-15 12:57 am (UTC)(link)
Wally West. Nice to meet you.

[He offers a hand to shake and grins.]
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-15 01:02 am (UTC)(link)
[She considers it a bit, and then reaches out to take the hand.]

A pleasure.
fasterthan: (do you really mind?)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-15 01:09 am (UTC)(link)
[He shakes her hand warmly before releasing it.]

Anyway. Any idea what this place is for?
