Setup for Halloween 2020 and Halloween 2021

Initial Text

You find a man painting a pillar with what looks like blood, although his earlier works have already dried to a smeared brown. There might be some deeper meaning, but it looks almost natural as it is now, like the concrete simply turned that color over years of neglect.

Choice Text and Results

Ask about his art

During Halloween 2021:

He points at a Rorschach blot on the wall that faintly resembles a butterfly. "The older generation always wants to tell everyone what to do… could always bend knee to them. Their servants kneel but at least kings and queens protect them from disease and… whatever things dig beneath."

He stares off for a while before continuing "you ever see that old episode of Matsuo where the White Worm is gonna devour everything and he needs to team up with the Worldsoul? Great episode."

You've earned 2 XP in Will

Or, during Halloween 2020:

He looks at the jagged symbols on the wall. "Outsiders watch and learn, while the eye wants to build something new. Funny, isn't it?" He pauses, coldly, as though waiting for you to laugh.

"Meanwhile in the background," he points at a bit of blood in a pattern that looks like circuitry, "the neighbors wonder if blurring flesh and machine can blur waking and dreams."

You've earned 2 XP in Perception

Give him art pointers

He turns towards you with a furious look, which grows increasingly twisted the longer you speak.

Fight Insane Bum

Help with a fake blood capsule

You add some more blood to the pattern, adding some hints of traditional Halloween vistas. Even if the new blood smells more like mint, it really does a good job tying it together.

You've earned 4 XP in Will

Jump him

You jump the bloody man. He shouts back "the eye rises over the outsiders! What was seen is now changing! We will all change!"

Fight Insane Bum

Leave him be

He barely glances in your direction as you pass.

(Walk Away)
