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!

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.

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.

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.

[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.

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

[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.]

[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?
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-15 01:12 am (UTC)(link)
I do not know. Possibly to trap those of us who dared try to exit Mayfield?
fasterthan: (this ain't gonna be pretty)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-15 02:43 am (UTC)(link)
What, like through the fun house? But it's not like anybody knew it would take us out of Mayfield.
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-15 03:03 am (UTC)(link)
Previously, there was a broadcast that informed us of some sort of holes located in the carnival. I do not know if this was an intentional trap of the town.
fasterthan: (I'm not so sure about this)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-15 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
Is that what it was saying? I didn't catch all of it.
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-15 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
I did not either, but the general idea was that there would be some method of escape through the carnival now that Zemekis' control is weakening.
fasterthan: (concerned about you)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-15 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
And so everybody went to look for it. Huh. And here I was thinking it was just 'cause the place was all boarded up and then suddenly wasn't, you know? Natural curiosity and all that.
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-15 03:39 am (UTC)(link)
I went in because I failed to find exits in any of the other places.
fasterthan: (serious contemplation (he does it))

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-15 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
I went in because I was investigating. But hey, either way, we're still stuck here.
answerer_sword: (Default)

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-15 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
What resources have you located so far?
fasterthan: (I'm not so sure about this)

[personal profile] fasterthan 2012-07-15 03:46 am (UTC)(link)
Well there's the food stall. There's a couple of houses too, but they're empty of pretty much everything. Other than the houses and the carnival though, there isn't anything.

[personal profile] answerer_sword 2012-07-15 03:47 am (UTC)(link)
The water, so far, seems to be drinkable, though the taste leaves much to be desired.

[A pause.]

Is the lawn edible?
