Let's see how long before a Bay12 Forumite makes an actual crazy interesting character.
+1
+1, but proposing to change the purple glow to green with red glow. :T

Also, would Deception or Persuasion work as a concept? There appear to be none in Zal's thing.
I couldn't really think of anything good in that department, so the whole concept thing is up to you. I just posted something thinking no one else would probably do it. (Even though someone would eventually do it) Also I want to change the purple glow to green with red glow too. (I use purple way too fucking much)

(TSG)Gnosis: Loquacious Forms and Mysterious Boxes

You hand the form back to her and she hands you the package.

“Thank You very much” She says with a slight bow. “I'll be going now to leave you to your exciting Adventures.”

After the door closes you look at the package. It's a bit thin, fairly heavy and you can't hear anything moving around inside1. It was your birthday last week and your parents said that one of your presents was going to be late, so this might be it.

You could open it, but that might spoil whatever surprise your parents had planned2. You also remember that your mother also told you to go get some decorations for the harvest festival down from the attic. She'll be back soon and if you don't have them down beforehand you might be in trouble.

Do you:
>Open the package
>Go up to the attic and do your chores
>Something else entirely

This is what happens when we randomly murder people.

You get attacked by a Yandere triangle monster.

Spoiler: Apologies (click to show/hide)


You set the package down on the kitchen table. Probably best to get those chores done, no sense in risking motherly wrath.

You leave the kitchen and enter the living room. It's a cozy place with a couple of couches, a coffee table, a fireplace1 and a TV2. There's a Wheel with muted colors to match the season above the fireplace, but no other decorations up yet. Your father's laptop charger is lying beside the couch and there are some magazines and a home gardening book on the coffee table. The stairs to the second floor are on the opposite side of the living room from the kitchen.

After climbing the stairs up to the second floor you carefully step around your mother's collection of Keftian nested dolls and grab the creatively named “attic opener” resting on a small table. Once you've cleared away a large enough space you reach up with the long metal rod and bring down the ladder.

The attic looks exactly as you'd expect it to: A dusty realm of brown and faded fabric. Old odd and ends from as far back as your great-great-grandparent's days are piled past head height; some sturdily stacked, others about ready to fall over.

You can see the boxes of holiday decorations on a shelf in one of the far corners of the accidental maze. When you finally reach the first box3 you have to slide an old chest up to the shelf in order to reach it. Even with the chest you have to stand on your toes, so it comes as no surprise that you knock something else off along with it.

A small box falls down from the back of the shelf. You try to move to catch it, but you are too late. The box tumbles and crashes to the floor and the moment it makes impact you see the lock on it turn into dust. An acrid taste enters the back of your mouth as a book, about the size and thickness of one of your textbooks, falls out of the box.

You climb down from the chest and pick up the book to examine it. The pages inside are yellow and all the text is written in some language that you don't recognize. There are diagrams of some sort every now and then, a lot of circles, but you couldn't make sense of them to save your life.

What do you do with the book:
>Put it back in the box despite the lock being gone.
>Take it back down with you.
>Something else.

Do you want to bring the book with you when you go out, or are you leaving it in your room or somewhere else in the house?
