    The Narrators would like to issue a general spoiler warning. While we will try to avoid spoilers for Worm as much as possible, we will be providing links to character wiki pages that do contain spoilers. If you haven't read Worm, we strong advise doing so for a variety of reasons. If you haven't and think you may ever wish to do so, we advice being cautious when perusing any wiki links we provide.



    Fitful dreams of a red fog sweeping over your beloved city plague your mind as a soft voice gently pulls you back to consciousness You awaken slowly, weary and sore from...a fight? No, a chase. Vague memories of being stalked through Bonesaw's miasma reach the surface of your mind, jolting you into a tense wakefulness as you realize the danger you might very well still be in. As your senses come into focus, you take note of the room you've found yourself in: these concrete walls with no windows, the threadbare cot that was the only piece of furniture, the thick metal door that seemed to be locked up tight...all of it gives you the distinct impression of a prison cell, but you've no idea how you got here, who's holding you here, or why they've locked you up.

    Time passes; you think it's been a few hours, but without a clock or a window, it's impossible to really tell. You're pretty sure you can feel yourself slowly going insane, and you could've swore you heard voices just a little while ago, but whenever you listen for them, they seem to go quiet. As time goes on, you notice the air has a reddish tint it didn't have before...and that's all you manage to remember before a wave of drowsiness overtakes you, and you slip into unconsciousness once more.

    ...

    The raucous, screeching sound of audio feedback echoes through your cell, jolting you awake once more. As you search for the source of the awful noise, a bubbly, almost sickly sweet voice seems to come from all around you. "Would all contestants please make their way to the lobby? Please and thank you~" The door to your cell swings open silently, your first real opportunity to leave this place. "Please comply with your instructions! If you do not wish to participate, you will need to be confined to your room for the duration of the game, to prevent you from influencing anything." Rising to your feet with a grimace, you briefly note that your body feels different than normal, before making your way down the hall outside your cell. Signs on the walls point you towards various locations, including the lobby...which is helpful since without them, this place is a veritable maze, nearly impossible to navigate.

    Arriving at what seems to be the lobby, you take note of the individuals already gathered in the room: despite feeling a brief spurt of recognition of the various costumes present, you can't seem to match names with faces at the moment - the miasma still clouding your memories, no doubt. You notice them all wearing large nametags, but you've never even heard of some of these weird cape names. You dismiss them as probably misnomers and take in the room itself. The room is rather large around with a high ceiling, multiple exits, plenty of waist-high furniture, and a large clock on the southern wall just over a massive pair of double doors. The jagged grooves and scorch marks that cover nearly ever surface of this place make its purpose clear: whatever else this may be called, this 'lobby' is an arena of some kind.

    The speakers come on once more, still with no apparent source: "Oh good, everybody's here! Ladies and gentlement, boys and girls, capes of all ages, genders, and affiliations! Welcome...to Werewolf!" the voice says excitedly. The double doors open up, and two people walk through: the first, a bouncing, cutesy little girl with a wide smile holding a microphone, and a woman covered head to toe in black and white stripes who's holding her hand. The child gives a happy giggle at the sight of you all, and speaks once more. "My apologies for all the theatrics, but I wanted to do this just right! Introductions are in order, I think: I'm Bonesaw, and this is the Siberian!" she says, with a gesture to the woman. Something in the girl's voice triggers your memory, and you're finally able to connect their faces with their names...and their deeds. You itch for a chance to take down these walking threats to humanity, and to potentially collect the bounty on their heads, but you know you're no match for The Siberian, and taking out Bonesaw while she's present would be similarly impossible.

    The girl giggles again. "Now, I know what you're all thinking. You're wanting to murder us and get out of here, aren't you? Well...maybe you'll have your chance after we've played our little game. After all, with how much effort we've put into setting this up, it would be rude not to take part. You see, Jack found out about this interesting little game, this...social experiment, I suppose you could call it, where a group of people who don't know who to trust are being picked off one by one from a splinter cell conspiring against the rest. The goal of the game, put simply, is to take out the splinter cell members before they manage to take out everybody that isn't one of their own. So we rounded up a couple dozen capes from around Brockton Bay, set up this little staging ground, and...well, here you all are~"

    "Now at first, we were just going to have you playing against each other - maybe the Empire 88 members would be the splinter cell, or maybe we'd reverse the normal dynamic and makes the wards the enemies of the rest of you - but Jack thought that wasn't really in the spirit of the game. Instead, the splinter cell will be...us! Well, not us us--" she gestured to herself and and the woman once more, "--but the rest of the Slaughterhouse Nine, or at least some of them. Every person in here, save for myself and Sibbie, has been dosed with a certain amount of my special miasma; most of you have no idea who anybody else is, although there's a few exceptions. For instance, all of the Slaughterhouse Nine members know who each other are, although they don't know who the rest of you are. Jack even insisted on playing in the game himself! Speaking of which, I should probably explain the rules~"

    "During the day, the lot of you can talk things out among yourselves...or you know, just squabble and fight, either way works for our purposes. At the end of the day, the person wanted dead by the most people, or the person the most beat up, will be put out of their misery and taken out of your hair, courtesy of us! Once they're dead, I'll check the list and inform the lot of you of who really died, and then...well, then it's bedtime! You'll all be ushered back to your rooms for the night. Some doors will be locked, some doors won't be, some may as well not be locked...the point is that some of you will be able to roam the halls at night, and some of you won't be. Be warned though, Sibbie might be quite cross if she catches you up past your bedtime, so do try to behave...or at least not get caught!" She giggles at her own joke, but you don't find the idea of the Siberian catching and eviscerating you particularly funny. "The next morning, you'll start the cycle all over again, and continue until either the Nine have all been eliminated, or only the Nine remain. Regardless of when they die, all of the dead will be present here in the lobby following their demise, with their true identities known to the lot of you for the rest of the game. If the Nine are all dead by the end of the game, whoever's still alive can go free, and even lay collective claim to the bounty on those member's heads. You could also try and fight the two of us if you like...but I recommend against that option~"

    "Now, it's nearly bedtime, so let's all get back to our rooms and prepare for the game to start in the morning. We've got some last-minute preparations to make for the game, but don't you worry: we're consulting a pair of precognitives to make sure everything will be quite entertaining. That's all for now, off with you!" She shoos you away, and you begrudgingly return to a cell - you're not even really sure it's the one you previously spent the night in - and await whatever horrors will come in the morning.

    Probably about a week? Depends how things go. We'll try to give a more specific answer in the next few days.

    It'd be great if we could get everyone signed up so far to check in and confirm they're still interested.
