The room is the color of magenta, his sister’s favorite color. There is a closet facing the opposite direction of the door August entered, and north of where he is standing is where his sister keeps her belongings. There is a mirrored vanity in which she spends a lot of time with, a television which is playing some karaoke that his sister was singing along to, a painting that she painted a while back, her dresser with a yellow flower on top of it she is caring for, her desktop computer where she writes music lyrics, and a bed. She is sitting on the bed waiting for August to chat with her.

He approaches her and the two begin conversing.

:ec_game3: :“Hi, August, Whacha want?”
:ec_game1: :“Just dropped by to say hi… hey, um… wasn’t tonight the party?”
:ec_game3: :“Yeah, it was supposed to be, but my friend Melissa called me at the last minute to tell me and a bunch of other people it was cancelled.”
:ec_game1: :“Huh? Why?”
:ec_game3: :“I’m not sure. She said something about her parents calling her to get over to where they are immediately as something wonderful has happened.”
:ec_game1: :“Did she say what it was?”
:ec_game3: :“Not really, she was speaking really quickly and cheerful over the phone and wanted to keep the conversation brief. She told me she would tell me what happened when she gets back.”
:ec_game1: :(Hmm… I wonder if it has anything to do with the weird day I’ve been having…) “Hey, did you happen to hear anything over the PA about anything happening recently?”
:ec_game3: :“Nope, just the usual boring morning, and afternoon announcements… but now that I think about it, what time is it? It has been a while and I don’t think I’ve heard the evening announcements yet.”
:ec_game1: : “Hmm… good point. Last I checked it was around 6.”
:ec_game3: :“Eh, they probably forgot... So, I guess now that I’m here for the night and we both have a bunch of free time, what do you want to do? You can listen to me sing a new song I wrote if you want, or maybe we can play a game, watch a movie, get some food delivered...”
:ec_game1: : “Well… I’ll have to give it some thought. But whatever we do, I should let you know that I might have a conversation with my friend online later. I hope you don’t mind if I have a conversation with them in the middle of any activity we plan.”
:ec_game3: :“Not at all. Speaking of which, did you get your friend’s birthday gift?”
:ec_game1: : “Yep. I just need to bring it to the post office tomorrow.”
:ec_game3: :“Excellent!”

August’s sister has aspiring dreams of becoming a diva, and have been doing everything she can to make her dream come true such as improving her appearance, and practicing her singing. She still has a long way to go, but she has a lot of heart and willpower to try to make her dreams come true. What is her name?

She will be named "Maya Sigmus". Sometimes she is nicknamed "Mayday"

But because August couldn't be named by his full name, it was decided to shortened her name to "May" to keep a theme going for the moment.

After discussing it a little bit, May and August decided that they will watch a movie for the night. She pops in the movie “the Refrain of Tears”, one of her favorite musicals.
Normally he isn’t a big fan of musicals since it involves trying to listen closely to the lyrics in order to understand the story which is hard to do sometimes without subtitles, but since the party she wanted to go to was cancelled, he decides to give her a break and just watch it with her without starting an argument. He grabs the chair from the vanity and sits next to the bed putting all his attention on the television.

Halfway through the movie as he tries to follow along with the lyrics of the movie, he hears a notification from his laptop. A familiar sound signaling that someone had mentioned him in chat, or sent a personal message to try to get his attention in the chatroom he hangs out in. He figures that since he already can’t follow along with the movie, he might as well chat with whoever is calling out to him. It should be fine to excuse himself since he already let his sister know he might get interrupted earlier.

After letting her know what’s going on after a particularly catchy song, and ensuring her that it won’t last too long, he sets his laptop up over on the vanity and investigates who is calling him. It seems like Indolent_G3ar_57 was the one who got back to him. August proceeds to join in the conversation.

After letting her know what’s going on after a particularly catchy song, and ensuring her that the convo won’t last too long, he sets his laptop up over on the vanity and investigates who is calling him. It seems like Indolent_G3ar_57 was the one who got back to him through the personal messaging. August proceeds to join in the conversation.


:ec_game2: : Hi, eg0-n1matic. Sorry for the late response. I’ve been taking a nap ever since I got into an argument with ex@sperat3d10/10.
:ec_game1: : And you didn’t set your status to “away”?
:ec_game2: : I was hoping she would eventually respond back with an apology, so I kept myself available for her to notify me.
:ec_game1: : And yet you didn’t hear my response.
:ec_game2: : Hey, it was a good nap. Ready for a voice chat?
:ec_game1: : Can’t. I’d be interrupting my sister’s movie if I start yapping away.

May begins singing along to one of the songs from the movie.

:ec_game1: : Not to mention I’d be doing you a favor by saving you from her singing. Text chat is fine for now.
:ec_game2: : lol.
:ec_game1: : What were you even arguing about? I did notice her status was set to ‘do not disturb’…
:ec_game2: : Oh, you know if there is an argument concerning ex@sperat3d10/10 it is usually something small that she blew out of proportion.
:ec_game1: :Yeah, probably best I don’t know, her arguments are headache inducing. btw, I got my birthday gift ready to send to Flirt@tious_Collider494. Did you get yours ready yet?
:ec_game2: : Oh yeah, I forgot about that… when is her bday again?
:ec_game1: :Dude, it is about a week and ½.
:ec_game2: : Oh, that’s a relief. Plenty of time then
:ec_game1: :Ummmm... no it isn’t. You know that getting mail to her takes a while, right?
:ec_game2: : Haven’t you heard of “fashionably late”?
:ec_game1: :Come on, you’re going to make my birthday gift look the best by default if you aren’t even going to try.
:ec_game2: : It isn’t a competition y’know? And besides, you’re cutting it close yourself sending your gift as late as you are.
:ec_game1: :I at least have an excuse. I couldn’t get my gift ready until it was released in stores today, and even so, I calculated when she would get her gift beforehand. I should be fine
:ec_game2: :Good job. Also, I’m glad you’re done with the college semester

August notices that Indolent_G3ar_57 is trying to change the subject regarding him being too lazy to pick up a gift. This is usually something he does whenever there is something he doesn’t want to talk about. He decides to let it slide this time as he still needs to talk to him about what happen earlier today.

:ec_game1: :Yeah, me too… I actually don’t really want to go outside for a while, even though tomorrow I still have to at least get the gift sent.
:ec_game2: :I can relate. There is no need to go outside when you have internet, video games, and television.
:ec_game1: :Well, for me it is more of the fact that some weird things happened outside today when I left the mall, and I don’t really want to go outside to deal with it until it blows over.
:ec_game2: :Oh?
:ec_game1: :As I was leaving the mall with the gift for Flirt@tious, I heard a sound of something electrical over the bridge facing the highway just outside the mall. And as I looked out the bridge, you wouldn’t believe what I saw!
:ec_game2: :What was it?
:ec_game1: :On the highway, there was a large ball of light in the middle of the street, kind of like a dome that cars were trying to drive around, driving as fast as they could away from it… I only caught a glimpse of it, but I think it was growing, and consuming whatever vehicles near it that didn’t manage to drive around it.
:ec_game2: :Hmm… Maybe somebody accidentally dropped or crashed into something high voltage causing an electrical explosion?
:ec_game1: :I do not know, but I did not stay to find out, so I ran as fast as I could towards a trolley far away from there and back to my home. Oh yeah, and all the lights that were like, in a mile radius of the ball of light was flickering and getting brighter. It was scary. There were other people that were running and driving away too!
:ec_game2: :Huh… weird. I’ve never heard of anything like that happening before, so I don’t know what to tell you.
:ec_game1: :Yeah, they didn’t even mention anything happening in the PA system either… and that’s not all, as soon as I managed to get away from it in the trolley and made it close to my home, I felt like I was being followed…
:ec_game2: :Followed? Maybe you’re just paranoid after what happened…
:ec_game1: :Maybe… but I kept hearing noises or seeing glimpses of moving shadows around me.
:ec_game2: :You think the person may have wanted to steal your gift?
:ec_game1: :Unless they followed me out of the mall, I don’t think so. I kept my gift in my inventory, so they shouldn’t have been able to see it. And not only that, it didn’t just feel like I was being stalked by one person, but rather… multiple people.
:ec_game2: :Yikes! well, I’m glad you made it home safely. Hope you can find a way to send your gift over tomorrow, but really, maybe you should just wait it out until you get more information about what is going on, Yeah?
:ec_game1: :Ugh, I really don’t want my gift to be late though…
:ec_game2: :Priorities, man… Um, hey, listen, I am hearing some kind of mechanically thumping somewhere in my home… it has been going on and off all day, but it seems to be pretty loud this time around. I think I need to check up on it so I can shut off that annoying noise.
:ec_game1: :Alright. I’ll be waiting here. Be careful.
:ec_game2: :You too. Just give me a few minutes.

August decides to listen to the music from the musical as he browses the internet and waits for Indolent_G3ar_57 to return. He seems to be taking longer than he said he’d return, but knowing him, he probably got distracted by a video game, or something on the internet to procrastinate on before he gets back to him. Typical...

*Knock knock*
August and May’s attention gets drawn away from their respectful screens their eyes were glued to, and looks over towards the source of the noise of knocking. The knocking sounded like It was coming from the entrance downstairs

:ec_game3: :“Eh? Who could be at the door at this hour?
:ec_game1: :“Not sure… maybe it is a salesman, or a scammer, or a religious person trying to convert us to their religion? Whatever the case, I’m not answering it and pretending we’re not home.”
:ec_game3: :“But what if it is Melissa trying to tell me the party is back on?”

*BANG BANG!*

:ec_game3: :“…On second thought, that does not sound like Melissa…”
:ec_game1: :“Whoa, is somebody… trying to break in our home downstairs?!”

*BANG BANG BANG!*

:ec_game3: :“Oh my… this is… ummm... this is scary August... What do we do?”

May is trying to calm herself with breathing exercises while August thinks of his options. The banging from the front door down the stairs is starting to sound like something is breaking, like the sound of wood being cracked open. He knows that going downstairs now would probably be dangerous, at least without something to protect himself with. He remembers that in his parents’ room across the hall from his sister’s room are some magical illusionary seeds with elemental powers which grants anyone with magical elemental abilities. He can run across the hall into his parents to retrieve them really quick and prepare to defend himself. He might also have to give one to his sister as well. Both of them know how to defend themselves fairly well through some self-defense classes, and it looks like May has started to calm down. But… would he feel safer if she was hiding and he was the one protecting the home, or should they team up to defend themselves? or maybe he should just hide somewhere with his sister until the intruders go away…

What should August do?

A) Get the elemental illusionary seeds from parents’ room and confront the intruders with May, safety in numbers.
B) Get the elemental illusionary seeds from parents’ room and confront the intruders alone while May hides (specify where she hides).
C) Find a place to hide with May (specify where to hide).

Why not mix and match. First of quickly take the elemental illusionary seeds and then proceed to escape. Whoever is targeting you right now maybe is working with others, so it would be a good idea to be armed yourself at least while escaping.

Only three options were presented, designed so that each decision would lead to a specific destined end goal. There is no other choice to stray from the fated path…

…and yet, the most logical decision that anybody would make at this moment in time is not one of those choices. Why? Wouldn’t it make logical sense for anybody in this situation to just get something to defend themselves with, and make an escape through an emergency exit like a window?

It just doesn’t make sense!

And just as immediate as those thoughts bubbled up while going through determined effort to try to find that one choice that may have been hidden, a new option flow in, almost naturally.

A new path has opened up, and a choice is finally made.

:ec_game1: : “Alright, May. First thing is to calm down. Deep breaths.”
:ec_game3: : “O…Okay… You have a plan?”
:ec_game1: : “Yes. We are going to escape out of here!”
:ec_game3: : “H…how? You know the only exits are downstairs, where those intruders are trying to break in!”
:ec_game1: : “Who said anything about going downstairs?”
:ec_game3: : ???
:ec_game1: : “We are going to escape through the window out of my room, walk along the edge, and try to find another window to someone else’s home to hide in, like maybe your friend Melissa’s home!”
:ec_game3: : “What?! That is crazy! You know that no one is allowed outside of the tower! Only people’s spirits after they pass away can be granted access out there! There are sleep paralysis demons lurking outside, looking to capture the souls of any living being foolish enough to make the risk to trek outside. Not to mention, we are like, millions of stories high… we could fall!”
:ec_game1: : “You make good points, but sticking around here is also probably going to get us killed as well. Besides, all through my life, nobody has ever seen a demon outside the tower. And even if we do come across one, we’ll be able to fend them off with our elemental seeds. As far as possibly falling goes, the edges are designed to be large enough to catch anybody who accidentally falls off the tower. It should be large enough for us to walk on and escape.”
:ec_game3: : “Well…”

The banging is getting louder, reminding them of the approaching danger.

:ec_game3: : “Okay! I trust you August.”

August puts the laptop back into his inventory while May jumps off her bed and turns off the television. The two makes their exit into the hall.

May joins your party!

The first thing on August’s mind is to grab the elemental illusionary seeds which grants them magical elemental powers. His parents keep them hidden somewhere in their room. August and May runs across the hall to their parents’ bedroom and swiftly enters it.

August and May are now in their parents’ room. Within the walls of this room is a ginormous flower that has been in the family for as long as he can remember, and an old television towards the south. Turning on that television is sure to make some loud noises. North of the room, there is a large bed fit for two people, a large chest in front of said bed (locked), and two nightstands on both sides of the bed. One nightstand containing a phone and the other containing an alarm clock. Both nightstands haves a lamp resting on top of it, and a single drawer. There is also a garbage can next to the nightstand on the right, and a closet. Above the bed hanging on the wall large picture of the family’s late pet. On the floor beneath August’s feet is a large rug between the television and the bed.

Suddenly, a new notification on August’s laptop alerts him of a new message in the chat room. He suspects It is most likely Indolent_G3ar_57 returning from his investigation. May speaks out as soon as the notification chime plays.

:ec_game3: : “Ugh! We don’t have time for chatting!”

Checking chat is very tempting, though August still needs to find those seeds. Maybe he can risk sneaking a peek?

The sounds of a loud crash and then sounds of rummaging downstairs rings through their ears. Whoever entered is probably searching the area for someone or something. It will most likely take some time for them to come upstairs if what they are looking for isn’t downstairs.

>You might want to set your messenger to silent so the sound won't give you away.

August pulls out his laptop really quick to put it in sleep mode so that no more messages will ping him. May gave him a glare but then relaxes when she realizes he was just going to silence his computer. She gives him a nod of approval as he pockets the laptop back into his inventory.

>>987888
>Also check the closet, might have something useful.

August was going to head over to the closet, but it looked like May already beat him to it. Because August suggested May to follow him instead of hiding, she will be able to cover more ground searching the room.

He opens the drawer of the left nightstand and discovers a dream journal. With this, He is able to record what had happened to him thus far if he wanted. (a fancy way of saying he'll just be saving his progress).

:ec_game3: : “Nothing of interest in the closet… just clothing and that creepy skeleton costume from the costume party months back…”

August picks up the lamp off the nightstand. If they can’t find the seeds, they can at least use the lamps as a weapon to defend themselves with…

And something about this is giving a sense of Déjà vu…

Got Lamp!

May checks the garbage after closing the closet back up.

:ec_game3: :Nothing but paper from a glance but… I’m not going to rummage through trash. Gross. What are the odds something as important as those seeds ending up in there anyway?

She then opens the drawer of the nightstand on her side, but closes it up immediately

:ec_game3: : ”Uh, err…
♩Empty void has filled the drawer
Within there is no pleasure.
Disturbed eyes sail elsewhere,
in search for misplaced treasure.♩”


August knows that May has a habit of singing short verses to herself whenever she is nervous about something. He was about to ask May about it when something shiny catches the corner of his eye. On top of the nightstand, it is a key, apparently it was hidden away under the lamp he just put in his inventory.

Got Key!

:ec_game1: : “Hey sis!”
:ec_game3: : “Uh, ♩I just said there was nothing in the drawer!♩”
:ec_game1: : “What? no, I don’t care about that!”
:ec_game3: : “Oh, nevermind. In that case, what’s up? did you find the seeds?”
:ec_game1: : “No, but I did find a key.”
:ec_game3: : “Whoa! What do you think it opens? Wait, you don’t think it opens that chest, do you? I don’t think we’ve ever seen what is inside.”
:ec_game1: : “Only one way to find out.”

August and May both approach the chest. He inserts the key, unlocks the lid, and opens it. There are a lot of things August doesn’t recognize. Old clothing, some old looking books with weird symbols on the cover with the pages yellowing, and some syringes. Although he doesn’t recognize the items, something about seeing them feels familiar to him, like as if he seen them a very long time ago as a small child. Before he can delve through his memories to try to remember, May speaks out.

:ec_game3: : “Ah! There they are! I found them, right on top of that blue book over there!”
:ec_game1: : “That’s a relief, lets grab them and get out of here!”

Got Elemental Illusionary Seed (F)!
Got Elemental Illusionary Seed (I)!


The seeds grants anyone who has them magical abilities based off of the element the seeds are categorized in through a dreamcier’s blood. August has gathered a fire seed, and an ice seed.

Before proceeding back to his room, August considers something.

>Hey, if they're downstairs, you can maybe look down from the upper railing and gauge whether you would rather take them or sleep paralysis demons on. If you think you can take those guys, it'd be better to do that than break a bylaw and possibly face something even worse.

He thinks of what the possibility might be if he and his sister can take on whoever is intruding and not have to escape. Though he is not sure how strong the invader(s) are. He considers how earlier today that he felt like he was being followed by what felt like more than one person after that incident at the mall and wonders if he'll have to deal with a whole group of them. taking a peek down the stairs and sees what he’d be dealing with might help him decide if he should confront them or not.

With those in mind, he contemplates on a few of his next actions.

- First, he should choose whether or not he wants to record his progress on the dream journal in the nightstand (this option will not eat up time if he decides to write in it)

- next, he should decide with May on who should get the fire elemental seed, and who should get the ice elemental seed.

-Finally, he’ll have to figure out if he should slightly open the door and take a peek down the stairs to see who is actually here or just leave out the window.

I'd say you may as well record your progress

You seem more like an ice guy, so you take the ice seed

Probably check what exactly is going on downstairs before you exit by the window, but do it alone, your sister can exit the window ahead of you while you check.

Record your progress, Take the Ice seed for you and Fire for your sister, and head out the window pronto!

Do NOT split up; both of you might end up having to face a threat alone.

Save, ask May which seed she wants, and peek to see if the intruders are just as dangerous as demons. If not, it's probably better to take them on; not only would it be a less intimidating opponent, you would also have a better terrain advantage. (Better to have the high ground than be fighting from a dangerous ledge.)

Fuck it. If you turly fear that sombody has enterd your house and that your lives are in danger, simply start the fire with the fire seed and give the cold seed to your sister to quickly put it out. If the pople who are still inside don't leave when they notice the fire then you know that they are here sepcificly for you or your sister, wich is the worst case scenario, second worst case scenario is diyin of third degree burns. Sorry for this stupid sugetion but this is just you calm thoughts going into panice mode.

Record your progress in the dream journal (save game?) and head out the window.

Ice is the better choice between the two since you might be able to use it to construct walls and platforms.

Record your progress. If it's free, it's free.

Information is power. If people were after you - one additional peek would not make a difference. They would still be chasing you anyway. But if you arm yourself with the knowledge of who they are, what they look like... what weapons they carry.

What's important to ask is what limitations do those seeds have in terms of powers. Do they only last a while, are they a permanent addition, so forth. If they are limited in time effects, it's probably best to hold onto one each, but perhaps it is best to consider which abilities are available on each seed for future reference.

:ec_game1: : "So, which seed would you want, May?

:ec_game3: :"I'm not too sure... What do you think is best for me?"

:ec_game1: : "Hmmm... Fire should pack more of an offensive punch to injure enemies much easier while ice is more defensive with making protective ice walls, and if we are lucky, perhaps freeze any enemies to slow them down. I would be more comfortable if you held on to the fire seed knowing you have something strong enough to protect yourself with in case something happens to me where I can't protect you."

:ec_game3: : "Hey! I can take care of myself, bro. I'm not a child you know... but... yeah, I'll take the fire seed anyway. My coat and shoes are downstairs, so I'm not exactly dressed warm enough for outdoor weather anyway. The fire seed should keep me warm enough."

:ec_game1: : "Makes sense. Just be careful with how much you use it. Overusing these seeds without letting it charge could break it, not to mention it magically draws blood from us in order to use its magic."

:ec_game3: : "No need to remind me. I wouldn't want to make mom kill us for breaking their stuff."

August is now equipped with the ice seed while May equips herself with the fire seed.

August makes his way to the nightstand and writes in the dream journal
Writing progress...
Progress recorded!


May equips herself with the lamp from the other nightstand and the two head back to the hallway.

As both May and August makes their way to his room in the hall, August stops over by the door leading to the stairway and starts to debate which is the more safer option. Would it be better to go out the window with the possibility they may face a sleep paralysis demon even if the chance might be low, or would it be safer to confront the mysterious intruders despite not knowing what they might be capable of. For now, August decides the best thing to do would be to take a quick peek out the door and down the stairs to see what they might be up against.

After telling May to step back, He quietly and slowly opens the door, just slightly enough to let his eye peek through, and he initially sees absolutely nothing. Nothing but pitch darkness. Normally when the room is dark, he can make out some furniture in the room as his eyes adjust, but this darkness is unnaturally dark. Dark to the point where he cannot see a thing. The only source of light is coming from the hall behind him, though it doesn't seem to travel far enough to light most of the room. In fact, he thinks the light that spilled out of the hallway might be fading ever so slightly.

He also notices that he feels a little bit weird just being near this darkness, like something inside of him is being obstructed or maybe lost. He cannot figure out what this weird feeling of emptiness is, but He doesn't feel sick or anything that would make him function badly either. He just has the feeling that something inside him is missing, or blocked off.

Before he can figure these feelings out, a figure catches his eye at the bottom of the stairs. they don't seem to be silhouetted by the darkness around them and he can make the figure out perfectly. They seem to be wearing a large brown hooded robe with their sleeves covering their hands completely. They are wearing what looks to be a cape with an odd symbol on it, except the cape they are wearing seems to be worn like a flag instead of being draped along the back of the figure. their faces looks weird with what looks to be giant stitches horizontally across the face of the figure along with two mandible-like horns shaped like hooks on the top and bottom of the face. August wonders if this is their face, or just a mask. But whatever the case, it creeps him out a little.

The figure seems to be standing in front of a machine with what looks to be a brass horn on top of it. It seems to be sucking up some kind of light particles around it while making a whirring sound.

Soon, another figure approaches the hooded person by the machine. They are wearing the same clothing except their stitches seem to be vertical, and the mandibles is pointed forwards instead of looking like two hooks. The first figure immediately speaks as soon as the second stops in front of the machine.

:ec_game4: :"Progress report..."

:ec_game5: : "Light in this floor of this residence is almost completely devoured. However, the Dynamo of Radiance has not been detected yet."

:ec_game4: :"Understood. It'll be a matter of time until this floor is completely covered in darkness and the Radiance Dynamo will be drawn out by the lack of light."

:ec_game5: :"To think it would be today of all days that the Dynamo was detected here..."

:ec_game4: :"Indeed. The caretakers hid them well, but it was inevitable for them to slip up..."

:ec_game5: :"At the last minute no less. Shame a lot of attention was drawn to that power for others in publice to witness."

:ec_game4: :"Right, but at least the other members managed to keep the incident under wraps. Be advised at this point further, anybody associated with the Dynamo needs to be either captured and possibly brainwashed, or terminated depending on how well they know of them."

:ec_game5: :"Speaking of which, I did find this in one of the rooms."

The figure hands the other what looks to be a smooth piece of paper.

:ec_game4: :"Hmm... looks to have been written recently. We'll have to investigate into whoever this is written later... good work."

The hooded person takes a picture of it before placing it in their pocket.

:ec_game4: :"That covers this floor then. It won't be long until this machine is done clearing the light off this area. It should give us time to send a report to what was discovered, and then we'll search upstairs."

:ec_game5: :"And what if the Dynamo isn't here and somehow escaped under our noses?"

:ec_game4: :"We have many of the other members combing the halls of the tower for them. There is no escape. That said, be sure your elemental seed on hand to protect yourself with in case they have seeds as well. This darkness only prevents light power from attacking us, but anything else cannot."

August shuts the door trying to process what is going on. As he steps away from the door, he notices some of the area around it is veiled by a pitch black darkness, much like what he saw outside the door. Standing near it makes him feel that same feeling of obstruction within him, but backing off seems to make him feel like his normal self.

:ec_game1: : "Hey May, do you feel anything weird when standing near this darkness?

:ec_game3: :"Well, besides it looking weird, no, I don't feel anything... So what will we be doing, August?"

August now has to decide what would be the best option, to escape out the window and hide out in another person's place, or confront those creepy hooded people. It is concerning that he may have to face a whole group of them probably looking to capture him and his sister, though coming across a demon out the window also seems pretty scary as well.

Those people downstairs are probably very skilled and well connected, so it would be best to avoid them at all costs.

Do you know anything about this 'Dynamo' their talking about, and have your parents ever mentioned it?

Either way that darkness is bad news, and if it is spreading through the house then hiding isn't an option anymore.

Go for the window and try to get outside.
Though you might want to keep an eye out for more of these weirdos.

You're the dynamo. How about that!

It sounds like you can't escape since these light-eaters are roaming the hallways, unless somehow going down the outside of the tower is an option... What about a fire escape?
How about a different strategy? You call for help via the internet, and fortify a position so you can fight them off until help arrives? If you go out and around to another person's room you'll have more time to fortify.

Oh, the whole misunderstanding has been cleared up, these people aren't burglars or crazy psychopaths. They are simply government officials, trained professionals for this kind of scenario. Simply go and talk with them and all of this will be sorted out in no time and who knows maybe this whole incident will help you become more popular with your friends.

Wait, are these guys trying to stop the Light Festival? Not cool. Still, it seems like fighting these guys is a temporary solution at best; with good tactics, we might beat them, but not before they relay critical info.

Our goal is to escape. You know of the oceans of dream-flowers outside, correct? If there's even a chance of you having the dynamo on you, you might have to consider even fleeing the tower altogether in favor of that ocean. (I'm not saying you should jump or anything, but you should consider finding a ship as a more mid-term priority.)
