8:29 A.M.[As morning comes to Mallow Hallow, Tronctor's face appears across the communication's network. As usual, he's looking grumpy as all get out.]
All right, folks -- we have a situation. Sometime in the middle of the night, it appears that we somehow regained a district. Yes, regained
-- there's supposed to be another one between Mallowhallow and Whitewood, but it went kaput before you lot showed up. But now it's back, apparently. And guess who gets to explore the prodigal district?[Offscreen, a female voice speaks up:]
You will hardly be alone, Tronctor.[Tronctor rolls his eyes.]
Yeah, well, forgive me for not jumping for joy about working with you again, Orion. Bloody magic. . .anyway, just stay out the area until we can check it out, all right? We'll report back in a hour or so.[He cuts the feed, leaving only static.]9:45 A.M.[The promised hour later, the feed returns, this time with both Tronctor and Orion visible.
A very freaked-out-looking Tronctor and Orion. The pair stare at the screen for a moment before Tronctor finally gets some words out.]
DON'T. GO. IN. THERE. All right? Do NOT go anywhere near that -- that fog-laden hell! It is NOT a good place![Orion chooses this moment to chime in.]
It is haunted by restless spirits, by shades of terrifying strength, by -- by -- I don't even know. That fog is UNNATURAL! Keep far away if you value your life and mind![Tronctor nods, running his fingers through his hair.]
Damn straight, Orion. So yeah, DO NOT GO POKING AROUND! We're gonna keep an eye on the place and see what we can do to get that -- that creepy
stuff out of there! In the meantime, just -- don't think about it!Oh geez, is this what happens to the places that lose all their lifeforce. . .
[The feed cuts out again here -- but if you want to visit Tronctor and Orion personally for more info, just go toward the edge of Mallowhallow and Whitewood. You'll find a sudden area filled with thick grey fog, and a technician and fairy looking not-too-happy to be there.]
((OOC: Wondering what's going on? Have a lovely explanatory post! As for this post, feel free to have your character only see one of the feeds, or go visit Tronctor and Orion as they try to figure out just what the hell is up with their new district.))
