Choice Text and Results

Add skull fountain

You haul the fountain into place, letting it settle among the crepe walls. The fountain's curvature catches a faint noise from one of the hall's speakers, echoing like the baying of distant hounds.

You've earned 10 XP in Will

Install mirrored glass


You hang the mirror among the crepe. It falls into place with a soft chime.

Looking into it creates the illusion that there's a whole world of caves lurking behind it.

You've earned 8 XP in Will

Sprinkle gold dust


You sprinkle some gold powder over the crepe paper, giving it a natural shimmer and charm. If the paper walls are supposed to be a cave, it looks like there are now veins of gold or perhaps a more mysterious mineral running through it.

You've earned 4 XP in Reflexes

Spread craft glitter

You toss out handfuls of craft glitter, giving the walls an unnatural shimmer and charm. If the paper walls are supposed to be a cave, it looks like there are now veins of some mysterious mineral running through it.

You've earned 4 XP in Reflexes

Hang more decorative webbing

You stretch out the webbing over the scaffolding, helping bind the crepe together and make the whole thing more festive.

You've earned 4 XP in Reflexes

Hide a chattering skull


You're not sure if skulls are really on theme, but they'll probably go well enough if you tangle them up in some webbing. Actually, the skull's movements cause the webbing to tremble like something is feebly trying to escape is a surprising bonus.

You've earned 6 XP in Reflexes

String up a paper bat

You hang a bat, but it seems pretty overwhelmed among all the webs, more a victim than a terrifying beast.

You've earned 2 XP in Will

Check the student

The student stares down at papers in his hands, beginning to rant without acknowledging your presence. "This is why we shouldn't allow corporate sponsorship. Look at this!"

Three completely different sets of plans are shoved towards you. "This one has fountains with special dimensions, but none of the components. The second wants mirrors, but good luck if you think you can get those through the Silver Couriers."

His expression becomes a bit more complex. "At least the people who want glitter gave us some glitter. Not enough, though, and this is supposed to be Halloween, not a spider-themed birthday party. What's next? Macaroni art?"

You've learned a new armory recipe: Skull Fountain - Assemble four Polysteel Supports, a Foam Skull, an Animatronic Motor, and a Skull Pile

Attack the student

He seems prepared to struggle, but even he seems to doubt it'll amount to anything.

(Fight Hipster, drops craft glitter in addition to normal drops)

With Watchful Guards:

He seems prepared to struggle, but the security guard following you rushes to his aid.

(Fight Hipster and Dock Security, Hipster drops craft glitter in addition to normal drops)

Leave it be

You wander through the increasingly cave-like environment.

It's already a little creepy and that's with all the lights on. It seems like everyone's done a good job this year.

You've gained 10 duration of Halloween Spirit.

(Walk Away)
