We begin in a forest.  You awake to find yourself on the ground, with no memory of where you are, or what brought you here.  It appears to be late afternoon, with the sun tipping West in the sky.

Do you?

Get up immediately and begin walking North.

OR

Sit up, take inventory of your supplies and your surroundings, and try to remember what happened in the past day...week...month?

As you make your way through the forest, you notice shimmery dust falling from the trees.  Its iridescent and casts faint rainbows at the right angle.  You put your hand out to try to catch the falling particles.  They stick your your skin like a powder.  You continue to walk, and make your way to a clearing, that forks off into two directions.  One has a sign that reads Harkirk, and the path looks to be somewhat overgrown.  The other has no sign, but looks like a well worn trail.  

Scavenger Hunt Item:  Something Curious
Scavenger Hunt Item:  Something Gruff
Scavenger Hunt Item:  Something Elemental

Do you?

Follow the path to Harkirk.

OR

Follow the well-worn trail.

You survey your items and the forest around you, and try to shake off the feelings of panic and confusion.  You have a backpack with a small journal, a bundle of twine, and canteen of water.  The forest has tall green trees, moss covered rocks, and no discernable trails.  You hear a river or creek somewhere close by, but cant quite pick out what direction the sound is coming from.  Though you seem to have just woken up, your body feels tired and achey.

Scavenger Hunt Item:  Something that Contains
Scavenger Hunt Item:  Something Philosophical

Do you?

Set up camp for the night, and plan to get an early start in the morning.

OR

Set out to find the river or creek.

You follow the overgrown path, and arrive in what looks to be an abandoned village called Harkirk (or youre assuming that based on the signs, anyway).  There are a few small homes, and a central square with a dried out fountain.  Upon closer inspection, you see smoke coming from a small hut a bit further out.  You make your way to the hut to investigate.  As you approach you can hear noises coming from inside, and can smell food cooking.  You notice your tummy rumble.

Do you?

Knock on the door of the hut, and see who is inside.  Maybe theyll share some food and help you figure out where you are.

OR

Take a closer look around the village and see if you can find any food or clues without bothering the person (or thing?) in the hut.

You follow the well worn trail, and quickly come to another fork in the road.  One is covered in the shimmery powder that was falling from the trees.  The other is covered in dark sand.  Almost black.  You make your way toward the path covered in the shimmering dust, but as you approach you feel a disconcerting energy.  It makes your hair stand on end, you get shivers, and there is a chill that moves through your body.  It feels like a warning.  

Do you?

Follow the shimmery path anyway.

OR

Go down the black sand path.

You sleep surprisingly well.  Youre still recovering from whatever happened to you, and you must need the rest.  You wake up to the sound of birds, and a light breeze in the air.  You almost feel refreshed.  You pack up your things, and start walking West.  Its not long before you hear sounds of chatter, and the clinking of metal.  You cautiously approach a clearing, and see people working, laughing, and talking around tables set up in a field.  It looks like it could be some kind of party or festival.

Do you?

Make your way to the group, ask them for information, and join their festivities.

OR

Stay back and watch from afar.  You dont even remember who you are yet, you dont know if you can trust them, or if they can trust you.

It short order, you find the creek.  Its small, but babbling, and it runs for as far as you can see.  You decide to follow it East.  After about an hour, up ahead you see a small hut that looks abandoned.  You approach and decide to take a look around.  You gently open the door, only to see a chair rocking in front of a fireplace that has just a few embers burning.  An old but clear voice moans, Is someone there?

Do you?

You answer promptly and enter to make yourself known.

OR

You quickly shut the door and make haste to get away.

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."

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.
