When the turtle went haywire, your room launched off as an escape pod without Galliard. It landed pretty roughly on the beach of a tropical island, but you didn't appear to be hurt. The pod sent up a strobe that has been flashing pretty brightly, but you learned pretty quickly not to look right at it from up close.

All of the stress caused you to fall asleep, but you woke up a little bit ago. It appears to be early in the morning, the sun is only just rising. You haven't done much to explore your surroundings. From the beach you can't really get a good idea of how big the island is. There are a few palm trees on the beach, and the foliage quickly grows thicker as it goes inland. There appears to be some sort of tower off toward what is probably the island's center.
No. 420819 ID: 132b99

can you climb a tree? if not then can you climb on top of the pod? from higher up you should be more able to see if any other pods are around.
No. 420822 ID: a2fa74

Get dressed in proper clothes. Shoes, socks, jeans, wide-brimmed hat, and either a heavy long-sleeve shirt or a light shirt with a light long-sleeved jacket. Gloves too, if you have them.
You can always take clothes off, but you want a protective barrier between your flesh and the EVERYTHING if you head into the jungle.

Galliard was totally right about this trip. How do you think he's doing?
Consider: if you were dating then he would have been in the room with you, and you'd be together now.

If you decide to head into the jungle, leave a note telling them you're heading for the tower. Normally I'd tell you to stay there and await rescue, but you'll be fine since you have great luck. The note is so rescuers know where to look.
No. 420824 ID: 180ec2

You're sure lucky that fancy aircraft had escape pods. If it ejected your whole room, what kind of stuff does that mean you have with you?

If the tower is the only noticeable structure on the island, you should probably go there, because any other survivors stranded on the island will be heading there too. If you have any way to write leave a note on your room for any rescue crews or other castaways who find it to say where you're going.
No. 420828 ID: f387a1

Attention. Varying degrees of interpretation, not to be interpret literally.

Wha? Using this complicated situation to coerce her into a romantic relationship? Don't be ridiculous! Besides a stupid and futile exercise, we don't have time to wander in the realm of possibilities! Nobody knows how the situation would be in a different scenario! Just shut up! Galliard needs help!

With that said, Pavane also needs to know what's inside the pod. Clothing, rations, water, lifeboat, means of communication. Anything that may help her.

>what kind of stuff does that mean you have with you?

Well, you have all of your luggage. Which mostly includes things like clothes, a couple of books, some board games, a phone (which doesn't get any reception, you already tried), beach and pool supplies, a smaller backpack (for taking stuff too and from the beach), and a journal you brought to make entries about your trip. You like journals, even though you never remember to actually write in them.

The room seems to have a small stash of emergency rations and bottled water, along with a built-in radio and a smaller portable one. You couldn't get any answers on either of them. You're not entirely sure if you were even using them right.

>Galliard was totally right about this trip. How do you think he's doing?

You're sure he'll be okay. Totally sure. You think. You should still probably find him, he might need some help. It happens to him sometimes.

You're so worried.

>If you have any way to write leave a note on your room for any rescue crews or other castaways who find it to say where you're going.

You tear a page out of your journal and leave a note on the bed saying that you're going to go to the tower.

>Get dressed in proper clothes.

Unfortunately, you don't have any jeans or long-sleeved shirts or jackets. You only really brought clothes to wear to places like the beach, or the pool, or walking trails in a tropical paradise resort. You have a pretty wide variety of clothes, though. You brought a lot of luggage.

What do you wear?
No. 421068 ID: 516a9d

If you're going to head into the thicker underbrush, then you'll want to cover arms and legs. If you have sandals, or shoes, wear them as well. Gloves too, and a hat. If not, you'll want to circumnavigate the isle while calling out for any other survivors. Meanwhile, keep an eye out for any fruit or driftwood. You have shelter, which is good, but you'll need to find a way to sustain yourself, sooner or later.
No. 421070 ID: a2fa74

If you intended to walk on trails then you have shoes, socks, and some kind of pants. Not having a long-sleeved shirt is unfortunate, but those are the more important things anyway.
Wear those, a t-shirt, and a wide-brimmed hat.

Put some food and water in the backpack, and a dress. If there's a medkit then put that in the backpack as well.
Look for instructions for the radios. Write down what channel they're each on, then make sure they're both on the same channel.

Turn the lights off when you leave.

Before you head into the jungle, get up on top of the escape pod and look for any other pods. They might not have their strobe lights on, so look for things that could be pods, and also smoke. Don't forget to check the ocean.

You need something to keep some essentials in, something to keep the sun off your head, and something to protect your feet a bit. Aside that, best to just wear a light dress over your swimsuit, something that won't overheat you and that you can easily turn into a crud sack or some bandages. Also, tie your hair back so that it doesn't get in the way.

A watch will be handy as well, both for telling the time and for finding compass directions using the sun.

UNfortunately, you don't have a coat or pants, or even that kind of hat. You would really love to dress up like that though, you really liked that movie with the skull and the jungle and all that.


You toss on a dress and some shoes, and your sun hat. You put some food and water into your backpack, along with a first aid kit and the smaller radio.

You climb up onto the roof of your pod, but there isn't much more to see there. It looks like the sun is coming up, and you can see a glint and a bit of a flash way out at the horizon. It looks like it might be another pod, but it's about as far out as you can see. You fiddle with the radio, but are unable to get any sort of response.

Aside from a few faint clouds out toward the east, the sky is completely clear. It's a shame that the turtle crashed, this would be perfect weather for a vacation.

It's not that you've -only- watched it, it's just that it's the best in the series.

You think about relaxing for a while, but you're still just so worried about everyone! You decide to head inland.

After a short walk, you push through the bushes and find what looks to be a small stream and a spring. There are a lot of berries in the bushes around here, as well. Everything is pretty quiet on this island, which you guess is kind of weird? You always thought that unknown paradise islands were supposed to have like, jungle bird noises or something. And maybe a soundtrack.
No. 429442 ID: b85f8c

What, it's completely silent? That's pretty weird.

What color are the berries? You can fairly safely test if a berry is edible by getting some of the juice on your lips and waiting a while. If nothing happens they're safe to eat.

It's not -completely- silent. The little brook is making trickling noises. But there aren't any animal sounds or anything like that.

You decide to remedy the background music problem by humming and whistling some tunes as you go.


The berries are lots of different bright colors. They're pretty tasty, too!


The only landmark of any sort you've seen on the island is the big tower, so you guess that if they went anywhere they'd probably be there. And if nothing else you'd be able to see most of the island from there.

Since the tower looked to be up and the brook seems to be flowing down, you decide to work on following it up until the canopy clears enough to find the tower.

You think you hear something.

You feel like something is watching you from the bushes, so you decide to investigate.

It turns out there was something! a tropical bird quickly bounds up onto your hat, leaning forward over the tip to look into your face.

A quick offering of berries is all it takes, the bird looks pretty happy! He also seems to be pretty satisfied being up on your hat, and makes no effort to leave his new perch.


Dinosaurs are lizards, and you're pretty sure they're a lot bigger than this bird. And even if it was a dinosaur it'd be WAY too small to eat Galliard.

It looks like some kind of neat little jewel thingie! It has some kind of shape visible in the facets, but you can't really make it out. The lighting isn't really good enough with all the plants and overgrowth above you to try to shine a light through it or anything.

You decide to take it with you, because it's tiny so why not.

You reach a spring that the creek you were following seems to be flowing from, so you can no longer follow it inward. You continue making your way across the island, though making your way through the brush is a bit slower-going without a relatively open path to follow. It's not so bad, though, you've got plenty of berries to snack on and your bird friend provides some musical accompaniment.

It's nearly sunset by the time the foliage starts to clear out and break, and then you see it. A large stone structure stands out against the otherwise plant-based surroundings, though it is itself more than a little overgrown. Rising out of the top of the structure is a high tower. It looks like you've reached your destination!

The statue on the left looks like some sort of weird big fish with a bunch of holes in it and patterns all over it. You have no idea what it means.

It looks like there's the same sort of hole in it, but it's way to big for the little jewel you found to go there.

The engraving in the wall doesn't really make much sense to you. There's what looks like it's probably supposed to be some people holding up two things next to the door, and there's some water and a sun and a bunch of people lying on their backs? And there's some pillars holding up something above the birds? It doesn't really make too much sense.

It certainly looks like it might be intended to be the same shape. It's pretty abstract though.

It was light outside when you found the gem, there was plenty of light to see by. It's fun how the gem's faceting makes little patterns when you shine the flashlight through it in the dark, but it doesn't let you see it any better.


The 'Door' appears to be a bunch of solid panels with no hinges or anything. It looks like there's some sort of mechanism at the sides recessed into the wall that operates it, but you have no idea how to do so!
No. 679761 ID: 5ad4a7

So the figures are carved into the wall? Can't move any of them?
The one holding up a thing on the right looks like the symbol above the door, maybe you can press on that figure? Also I think there might be a button or something on the frame near that figure, but maybe that's just an oddly shaped crack.

Lacking any results from that, you could investigate the rubble near the right statue, try piecing some of it together maybe to see if the statue is the same shape as the one on the left?

There's a seated statue with a fancy-looking hat on top of it, the hat doesn't look like it's a part of the statue.

You hear a gentle hum that seems to reverberate through the tower around you as the light expands to fill in the pattern completely!

The pattern seems to almost sink away into the light, taking the wall with it! It reveals a staircase behind it, and you go through to climb again - hoping to reach the top of the tower soon!

So are these those crazy "clouds you can walk on" or something? There's stairs leading to them and it didn't look like the tower was big enough to support anything wide at the top. Throw something at the clouds in front of where that staircase on the outside is headed.

Huh. Okay then.
How sensitive is your mysticbullshitometer, Pavane? Thinkin' that might come in handy soon.
Also, considering all the bird imagery in that templey room we came though to get here, maybe bird friend may be a little more involved in this place than we know.

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.

Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best

And... always look on the bright side of life.
Always look on the light side of life.

You already pulled the switch, it was supposed to launch the lifeboat! It didn't, though, which honestly doesn't surprise you as much as it probably should.

The room is definitely at a weird slope, but it's not so steep that you can't stand on it. It seems like the whole thing lost power, and the only light now comes from what is probably a bunch of emergency lights? It looks like something is coming in through the front windshields in the cockpit on the other side of the door, so at least the turtle probably isn't underwater.

The Door seems to be jammed, probably because it's out of power, or maybe because of whatever mechanical failure caused the thing to not actually launch like it was supposed to anyway.

As you wake up, you start to realize that everything hurts a lot. But that's not really unusual either.
No. 683252 ID: 5ad4a7

Maybe you should stop and check yourself for real injury. Then try to pull open the door. If it won't move, then rummage through your bag to find something to pry the door open with.

You've broken every bone in your body enough times to be pretty sure that they aren't broken this time, and it's not like you could do much about it even if they were.

You attempt to pry open the door.

Thanks to your considerable strength, you are eventually able to pry the door open! It's really smoky in the other room, but there's still some light coming in through the battered windshields of the cockpit

The lifeboat launched right as you were leaving, and you couldn't keep your balance or grip well enough to stay inside the forced open door. You have no idea how far away that damn thing is by now.

The water broke your fall, and you only skipped across it a few times before plunging in, but you are a strong enough swimmer and suitably used to pain that you manage to make it into a suitably shallow area without passing out.

You are soaked.
Everything in your bag is soaked.

No. 683575 ID: b8ceae

Look around. Do you see any obvious landmarks? That is where you should go, because anybody else who survived would tend to gather there.
Since they'd also be luckier than you, they'd probably also have survival supplies and maybe a radio or something. Also, being luckier than you, they're also going to be a lot better at not dying to horrible luck, so you definitely want to meet up with them.

You start to wring your shirt out. Your bag is mostly just full of clothes, you expected that anything else you brought would break or be ruined anyway so you didn't bother to pack much.


You can't really make out much in the way of landmarks, just a weird swampy beach as far as you can see in any direction. More marshy-looking terrain going inland, and nothing in particular really stands out to you. The closest thing to a landmark that you can see is the wrecked turtle smoldering out in the water.

Suddenly, you hear a voice coming from behind you!

You look behind you and see what looks like a face peering out of a crack in a rock!

"The hell?!"

Could you answer me a question?

"What? What's going on here? Who are you?"

It's a very simple question - I suspect I know the answer I just want to be sure

"What are you talking about? I'm having a really bad day here..."

Just tell me, you exist, right? You are real?

It's just your luck that instead of being stranded in the middle of the ocean alone, you'd end up stuck with some weirdo.

You wish at least Pavane were here.

"What? Of course I'm real. What kind of goofy question is that?"

Ah, that is interesting. Very interesting. And what are you doing here?

"What the hell would I know. I don't know what's going on. Also why would you even ask me that question, what's weird about that?"

It's not exactly often to meet somebody around here who exists. It is very exciting.

"Wait, what? Are you saying that you don't exist?"

No, not exactly.

"So you exist?"

The face in the shadows grins widely

No, not entirely

God, what a useless headache.

"And what are YOU doing here then, if you don't even exist?"

I am interested in seeing what you are going to do

"Why would you care what I'm going to do?"

Because you exist

"Oh my god you are such a weirdo. What's so exciting about somebody existing?"

Look over there, what do you see?

You look out over the horizon, it looks like some kind of weird swamp or ocean with a ship wrecked off in the distance.

"It's the same damn thing I saw a few minutes ago"

Exactly. It's so exciting! I can't wait to see what you do next!

"What? Why? I hate to tell you this, but nothing good is going to come of anything I try to do."

He grins again.

"Why don't you come out here where I can see you? What do you have in there anyway?"

Don't be silly, you can see everything in here just fine from where you are.

Oh, fuck this guy.

"If you aren't gonna help me, I'm just gonna fuck off." You stand up and pull your shirt on, it's still not dry but you've decided it's dry enough.

Oh, who said I wouldn't help you? You never asked for any help. If I can assist you in doing whatever it is that you intend to do, I will relish it!

"Yeah, sure. I completely believe you. Later, weirdo."

Very well, since you were a sport and answered my question, I will answer yours as well. I have been known by many names, but if I were to say 'who I am,' I suppose... I would be 'Trouble.'

"Trouble? Really?"

Not 'really', but for all intents and purposes.

"You sure aren't being very helpful right now."

well of course not, you still haven't even told me what you want to do.

This guy is just the absolute worst. Should you tell him what you want to do, or just walk off and let him sulk in his crack?

If that's true, then it's made of shadows.

You know what this is probably a bad idea but at least it'll be interesting. Tell Trouble that you intend to explore the island and survive until you find Pavane again, then the two of you can make plans to get back to civilization somehow.
No. 779464 ID: 57f342

Be careful with the wording. I don't think it's wise to tell Trouble you want to survive until you meet her.

Let's ask for directions. He must know where Pavane is and what direction you need to go to find her.

Okay, we could word it like "survive and find Pavane, then live off the land with her until she wants to leave, at which point the two of you will head back to civilization somehow"
