You run until you find yourself on what looks to be a path covered in glitter.  Though it is beautiful, glimmering with every step, you can't shake an ominous feeling.  Suddenly, out of no where, you feel the earth beneath you shake, and you feel yourself falling.  Or maybe it's flying?  You can't be sure.  Before you can even catch your breath, you find yourself in a rope net hanging from a tree.  You walked right into some kind of trap.  You want to believe it was meant for hunting, or as some kind of perimeter protection, but you feel like neither of those things are probably true.  You shiver with the thought that you are being lured.  That this net was left for you.  But how?  Where even are you?  How did you get here?

Do you?

Begin working on the ropes, attempting to untie and shimmy your way to an escape.

OR

Resign yourself to waiting.  You know you're not getting out the of the ropes, and if you're right, whomever caught you can probably at least tell you what the heck is going on.

You announce yourself and cross the door threshold.  You suddenly see two small children running around a table, and a woman sitting in front of a fire with a cauldron boiling; the source of that delicious aroma.  It's almost as if the scene has changed before your eyes.  It's confusing, but, you just shake your head.  Clearly your eyes had just been playing tricks on you.  Your eyes glance to see the woman stitching a quilt that glimmers and sheens in the faint light from the window.  "Hello?" you manage to croak out.  The children stop and look and you lock eyes with the woman.  She smiles.  "You look weary, traveler.  Join us for dinner."  As you step inside, it almost feels as if you are stepping through some kind of energy portal.  You enjoy the tasty food offered, and ask some questions about the town.  The woman speaks of recent events that sound creepy and supernatural to you, but that don't seem to phase her.  You prepare to leave, feeling a bit more unsettled than before, but grateful to have a full belly.  You approach the door to leave and just as you are about to step over the threshold, you hear her say, "Please don't leave."

Do you?

Insist you must continue on your journey.  After all, you still don't know who you are or why your're here.

OR

Turn curiously toward her, and thank her for her hospitality.  After all, it is nearly dusk.

You watch, but don't see much other than people chatting and sharing food.  The mood is light, but you can feel a heavy energy.  After watching for a while, you decide it would probably be safe to approach them, and at least see if they have any information.  As you begin to make the small walk toward them, there is a loud, unsettling noise in the not-too-far distance.  You see the people startle and start to make there way out of the clearing.  They aren't running, but they're walking with a purpose.  

Do you?

Make your way to the group and ask them what is going on, hoping they'll allow you to go with them to safety.

OR

Start walking with purpose in the direction you came from.  Better safe than sorry, and if those people are in danger, why would you want to be near them?

The group looks at you suspiciously, but invites you to join them.  The atmosphere is light and jovial, but the energy is feeling heavy and ominous.  You swear there should be dark clouds rolling in, and monsters creeping in the shadows with how unsettled you are feeling.  You try to ask the group for information about where you are, where you might find the nearest large town, where you could sleep and get some supplies for your journey, but each time you ask a question they quickly change the subject.  It feels weird.  You don't know how else to describe it.  As you stand to thank the hosts for their generosity and company, there is a loud noise in the distance.  Everyone stops and stares, quickly making uncomfortable and concerned eye contact with each other.  One of them grabs your shoulder and says, "Come with us."

Do you?

Leave with the group.  Clearly they know things you don't, and what was that sound, anyway?

OR

Thank them, tell them you must be moving on, and wish them safety...just guessing they might need it.

You follow the black sand path as far as it goes, and find yourself in a village.  Or, what looks like it used to be a village.  You scope out the place.  If you're being honest, it looks run down.  Not old and shabby, but like there was maybe some kind of natural disaster.  You notice a large swath of land that looks like it was burned, and wonder if maybe there was a fire.  There is something very unsettling that you can't quite pinpoint.  Your hair is standing on end, and you have an urge to get away from here.  You decide to peek your head into one more, half-standing shack, just to see if you find any clues or evidence of where you are and what happened here.  You notice a small box that glints in a ray of light.  You reach forward and fall as you try to retrieve it.  You regain your balance and take another step forward.  You crouch to pick up the box, and as you make contact, the shack crumbles around you revealing the entrance of what looks like an underground tunnel.

Do you?

Make off with the box.  You'll inspect the contents later, but with all of the creepy vibes, there's no way you're going into the tunnel.

OR

Grab the box, but make your way toward the tunnel.  You might as well keep exploring.

You go to knock on the door, and it creeks open.  You see two small children running around a table, and a woman sitting in front of a fire with a cauldron boiling; the source of that delicious aroma.  Your eyes glance to see her hands moving, stitching a quilt that glimmers and sheens in the faint light from the window.  "Hello?" you manage to croak out.  The children stop and look and you lock eyes with the woman.  She smiles.  "You look weary, traveler.  Join us for dinner."  As you step inside, it almost feels as if you are stepping through some kind of energy portal.  You enjoy the tasty food offered, and ask some questions about the town.  The woman speaks of recent events that sound creepy and supernatural to you, but that don't seem to phase her.  You prepare to leave, feeling a bit more unsettled than before, but grateful to have a full belly.  You approach the door to leave and just as you are about to step over the threshold, you hear her say, "Please don't leave."
