Adventures beyond known space
« on: March 09, 2009, 08:50:35 am »
You wake up with a headache, in the middle of a stark white square room. Rising up you note that your knees hurt, as does your back. You're dressed in some sort of overalls that are also white. There is a door in the west wall, which is slightly ajar.

What now?

You check your overall for pockets, but find none. As you do so you notice that the material is light and smooth. It's also very very clean. The overall gives off a lovely scent of lemon. Your mouth feels dry as you open it and timidly call out:

"Hello?"

Your voice sounds rough, not quite as you remember it. Maybe you've been screaming lately. Or maybe you just haven't talked in a long while. You wait for an answer, but hear none. From somewhere outside the room you can hear faint screams and a deep rythmic sound.

What now?

Look around for a bottle of analgesics and a glass of water.

So is this deep rhythmic sound like a boom or a whoosh or can't I tell? Whatever it sounds like, I vote to crawl along the ground very carefully checking for tripwires.

What can I remember about my very recent past? How did I get here?

Your head still throbbing, you look around for some sort of pain relief. The room you are in is rectangular, about five strides across. There is no furniture in the room and it appears to be completely empty. It's only defining feature is the door that is slightly ajar. You're not sure why, but that door makes you feel queasy for some reason. The walls and floor are all white, but the material is odd. It's not really what you associate with floor or walls, it feels softer under your feet than a proper floor should be. You take a few steps towards the nearest wall to confirm that it feels the same. The material is soft and squishy, yielding slightly under your fingers when you push it.

Confused by the setup, you attempt to remember what this room is used for. You immediately hit a wall inside your head. With rising panic, you realise that you don't recall very much of anything. You don't know your name, or what it is you do. You don't even know your gender! Thankfully, this is easy to check. You don't know what this room is, but you have a distinct impression that you've spent a lot of time in here.

Attempting to jog your memory further, you can only remember what year it is. Confusingly enough you rememebr two numbers and feel that they both ought to be correct. The year is 2132 and 47, but you've no idea how this can be. As you ponder this you notice that you can no longer hear screaming. The deep rytmich thudding you heard earlier is still there, but the intensity is much lower now. Some forgotten part of your brain helpfully supllies that it sounds a bit like artillery fire.

What is our gender?

  Crap, I'm in a rubber room.  Am I insane? 

  I'm a preoperative (male to female) transsexual.  No doubt about it. 

  And: West.

Yup, definitely a pre-operation transsexual...

Carefully head west

Nthing pre-op MtF (which would make our gender female and our sex male :3 ) and going west.

Then I make sure no one's going to bulldoze the building and kill me with a brick, and that there aren't many twisting passages, all alike.

Curiosity overcoming cauting (or just disorientation) I think I should just head straight through the west door.  I also feel I ought to ask Gandalf for the map.  Who is Gandalf, what map?  Is this why I'm in an asylum.  Is this an asylum.  What is going on.
