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!

Another recorder?

[Something is strange about this.]

(Another tape recorder, huh? Might as well make use of this one.)

Empress Kreutzer Wilhelm XIII, recording. Location: Tunnel of Love. Time: Unknown. This is day one in this area. I have recently arrived at this place...this secluded section of Mayfield, via the funhouse. There are others from town here, but aside from us...we're alone.

This area is much smaller than Mayfield, devoid of even standard furniture. The rats are large, but not a problem to deal with. The food does not fill, so we may be left here to starve. There is much that remains unknown about this place, so perhaps tomorrow's recording will yield more information. I worry that with a different location, the rules will change to go with it...perhaps more will be made clear after the first night. This is Kreutzer; signing off.

[Tachikoma waits for Kreutzer to turn off the recorder before speaking up.]

Are the tape recorders yours?

Oh, these? No, they were already here by the time I arrived. I thought I may as well take advantage of it and start a log of my findings. This is the first of day one and I hope to keep all of my future ones here.
genkibot: (Hurray!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-04 02:33 am (UTC)(link)
I was wondering if other left anything for those of us that just showed up, but it seems like nobody did.

Maybe no one is here but us? Still, I've been looking and listening to what people have been leaving on the tape recorders since arriving here now!

Yes, I suppose it's something for those who are trapped here...but perhaps somehow, others back in Mayfield will be able to hear it, too.

Oh? Have you discovered anything of interest while on surveillance?
genkibot: (Checkmate!!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-09 07:55 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, that would be helpful if we could use them to communicate with the others back in Mayfield!

But unfortunately nothing out of the ordinary has been reported on the Tape Recorders yet.

I'll check back later though to see if they say anything new! Or if I see anything interesting, I could report them here too!

[personal profile] suicidoll 2012-07-09 03:19 pm (UTC)(link)
That would be wonderful. I'm sure you'll have plenty to report if you decide to record your own tape. Your findings will be very helpful, I'm sure.
genkibot: (Tachikoma here!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-16 06:27 am (UTC)(link)
Oh I hope so! Protecting people and gathering information are part of my main functions, so I hope I do a good job at them!

[personal profile] suicidoll 2012-07-19 10:03 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm sure you will. There's no reconnaissance bot in town like you, Tachi.
genkibot: (I see you!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-08-10 05:44 pm (UTC)(link)
That's so much different than where I'm from. There's about 10 Tachikomas working in Section 9, so we're not exactly one of a kind.

Ah, but the rules work much differently in Mayfield. Whereas you were one of many back home, here you stand out as an original; where I was sentenced to another fate, I'm here with another. This town enjoys flipping things around.
genkibot: (Let me just catch my breath....)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-08-16 01:01 am (UTC)(link)
I wonder if the town does that on purpose, do you think it is? Or is that just an odd coincidence?
suicidoll: (Default)

[personal profile] suicidoll 2012-08-18 07:30 am (UTC)(link)
I believe it does so on purpose, but to be honest...I'm really not sure.

(It's also something of a sensitive issue for Kreutzer; that question has been picking at her since day one.)

[Claire decided to walk along the edge instead of getting in a boat. Mostly because he thought it would be easier to look for clues this way. That's when he found the recorder. He plays the previous message and records his own.]

Is this thing on? If it is, then there's a couple things that need to be made known 'bout this place that the Empress didn't mention.

First is you can't walk past the church. For some reason it loops you right back around to the carnival. Believe me I tried. It's gettin' pretty boring just explorin' the carnival and the houses that're here. Though I guess if you're stuck here you already know that much.

Secondly...I'm pretty sure this place is where theat freak show used to be.

Either way I'm gonna continue explorin' this place. Hopefully find a way back or some more info.

[Tachikoma again can't fit on the ride, but that's not what it's looking for here. Searching along the sides for a bit, eventually finds the Tape Recorder.]

Ah ha! I thought there'd be one here!

[It rewinds and plays whatever is currently on it, before putting it back.]

Alright, now to find the next one!
