[NPC] Samantha wrote:But I don't know the layout of this building very well!
[NPC] Diana wrote:EEEYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
[NPC] Samantha wrote:Was that Diana?!
[NPC] Diana wrote:LEWIS! LEWIS! GET ME OUT OF HERE!
THROW ME THE ESCAPE ROPE! HURRY!!!!!!
Lewis searches through his inventory and finds something.
An essential for any Adventurer who's up for a little potholing. Use this to instantly escape from any underground dungeon. Don't ask how it works.
Diana is screaming in terror. Gunshots can be heard echoing from the elevator shaft.

Not understanding how Escape Ropes work, Lewis throws the entire rope down to Diana. Diana fails to catch it and it falls down the elevator shaft.

Lewis can hear more gunshots down the elevator shaft. Diana keeps screaming. At this point Lewis is also worried of the intruders hearing the commotion and finding them.

What would Lewis like to do?
Tue Jul 11, 2017 7:09 pm
Lewis grabs onto the service ladder, and slides down the elevator shaft to get Diana.
Lewis makes it about three floors down before running into Diana. There's not a lot of light coming in this far down the shaft, but as far as Lewis can tell Diana is fine. She's clinging to the ladder as hard as she can, petrified with fear. Lewis almost has to ask her what the hell happened, but before he has a chance he notices something is... off...
Lewis isn't sure when or how it happened, but Diana's face is bleeding.
[NPC] Diana wrote:NO! NO DON'T LOOK!
The left side of Diana's face is melting off. She looks like she spent a week in the dirt and was only recently dug up, even though she looked perfectly fine a second ago. The same thing is slowly happening to her left hand. Her right hand is nothing but bones at this point and her left leg is straight up gone.Lewis realizes the same thing is happening to him. Both of them are decomposing at a rate that should not be possible.
Hundreds of ghostly hands emerge from the bottom of the shaft, reaching to grab both Diana and Lewis and pull them down with them. The flesh on their bodies starts to rapidly decay and melt off their bones. Lewis is terrified, but he knows if they don't do anything they'll both die down here.
Lewis takes something out of his coat pocket.
A vintage grenade from the 1950s. Lewis believes grenades to be like fine wine: the older they are, the bigger the explosion... for some reason.
[NPC] Diana wrote:THAT'S NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING! THEY'RE GHOSTS!
[NPC] Diana wrote:OKAY! FINE! WE'RE GOING TO DIE ANYWAY! WHY THE HELL NOT?!
[NPC] Michi wrote:...FADBURY...
Diana and Lewis pull the grenade pins out with their teeth and chuck them down the elevator shaft.
Seconds later, the building shakes as the grenades detonate. The ghostly hands vanish. Lewis and Diana's skin is somehow back on their bodies. After they collect themselves, they quickly climb back out of the elevator shaft.

[NPC] Lewis wrote:Forget about that thing for a second. I might have blown our cover with those grenades.
Diana looks around the hall for a few seconds. It is dead silent, but that might just be the rugs on the floors cushioning any footsteps or the intruders are sneaking around the corner quietly. Diana is not entirely sure of either possibility, but she knows if the two of them don't hide as soon as possible the risk of being found will increase.
Sam is hiding out in Room 68 right down the hall, beckoning the two of them to hide with her.
Diana and Lewis retreat to the room as quickly and quietly as possible, and jump into the mirror along with Sam the second they make it inside.
[NPC] Samantha wrote:You okay Diana?
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Do not go down there!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Whatever it was I think I killed it.
[NPC] Samantha wrote:You mean actual actual haunted?!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Of course it's haunted, dumbass! We're the ones haunting it! I don't know what the hell that thing was or if there are more of them, but it's invading our hideout just like Jim and his friends are. If we can't leave, then we'll just have to get rid of them both.

[NPC] Lewis wrote:We're going to ****in[size=20][color=#fff]'[/color[/size]g destroy it!
[NPC] Diana wrote:HOW?!?! Guns don't work on that thing! I've got an empty magazine to prove it!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Those grenades did something.
[NPC] Diana wrote:That couldn't have-
Ugh, look, both of us are fine even though we were melting a minute ago. Whatever happened down there was all in our heads. That thing must get inside your mind and **** with your cognition or something. Why else would it know the faces of all of Jim's former companions that died? It knew because I knew.
The explosion just, I don't know, broke its concentration long enough for us to get away.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Well good thing we got Sam with us. Let's head back down there while we're still in Sam's mirror world! It can't possibly follow us in here!
Diana punches Lewis in the face.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:OW WTF?!?!?
[NPC] Diana wrote:I AM NOT GOING BACK DOWN THERE! I DON'T CARE IF IT'S SAFE IN SAM'S MIRROR WORLD! I'M NOT GAMBLING ON IT!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:You didn't have to hit me.
Alright, if we can't go down there... then we'll let somebody else go down there instead.
Jim likes spooky shit, and he already thinks this place is haunted. Let's give him what he wants. We'll lay the bread crumbs for Jim to follow, and once he gets there the monster can eat him or something. Then we come in and kill the thing ourselves. Two birds, one stone.
[NPC] Diana wrote:......
Alright... I can work with that.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Kick-ass! Let's mo-
Diana punches Lewis even harder.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:OW WHAT WAS THAT FOR?!
[NPC] Diana wrote:THAT'S FOR TOSSING THE WHOLE ROPE DOWN TO ME YOU ****IN[size=20][color=#fff]'[/color[/size]G DUMBASS!!!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Ow! Damn! I was just trying to help!
[NPC] Diana wrote:One last thing. If and when Jim gets eaten by that thing down, I want the last thing he sees to be me.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:I'll try and pull some strings then... Augh. Shit.
Let's just go already. Damn.
Lewis opens the door to the hallway.

[NPC] Diana wrote:AH SHIT!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:YOU MOTHER ****
Lewis and Diana point their guns at Alex.
[NPC] Diana wrote:HOW DID HE GET INSIDE THE MIRROR WORLD?!
[NPC] Samantha wrote:I DON'T KNOW! I DIDN'T SEE HIM GO THROUGH!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:DAMNIT SAM WHY DID YOU PICK THIS ROOM?!
[NPC] Samantha wrote:IT WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT WASN'T LOCKED!!!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:......
[NPC] Lewis wrote:You son of a bitch...
[NPC] Diana wrote:What makes you think we didn't kill your friend?!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Give me one good reason why I shouldn't blow your head off right now.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:We can take care of ourselves just fine. You, bucko, are another story. What the hell made you think coming in here unarmed was a good idea?! We're the mother****in' Zombie Gang!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Wh- THE **** DID YOU JUST SAY?!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Yeah, and these abandoned undergrounds are our base of operation. Also, you're our hostage now!
Thu Jul 20, 2017 7:29 pm
Lewis fires a shot at Alex. It nicks him in the shoulder. Alex clutches his shoulder in pain, but quickly regains his composure.
[NPC] Diana wrote:Woooow that sounds... just... so dumb...
[NPC] Diana wrote:You missed and you know it, moron.
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:If I'm to be perfectly honest... hrrnnnggg... this really hurts!...
...but I need to know what it is you saw.
[NPC] Diana wrote:Yeah? Why do you care so much?
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:If whatever is down here gets out it could harm innocent civilians. If you help me I'll ignore the fact that you're using this building as your headquarters. I'm sure the rest of your gang would consider this a "good deal."
[NPC] Diana wrote:Jokes on you. We are the rest of the gang. It's just the two of us right now.
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:Just the two of you?
Wait. You mean to say you're a gang of only two people? How is that a gang?
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:Hold on. I have another idea.
Let me join your gang.
[NPC] Diana wrote:Oh hell no! You're with Jim! You'll sell us out to him when you don't need us anymore!
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:I have no attachment to Fadbury whatsoever. We only just met a couple of hours ago. As polite as I try to be to a new face, I hold no loyalty to him whatsoever.
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:I wouldn't call us friends. Acquaintances maybe, but not friends. I came down here due to curiosity, nothing more. I'm helping Jim only because it furthers my investigation. If that were to change, then I suppose things would be very different right now.
So how about it? Want to add another member to your rankings? If you kill me now I cannot help you.

[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:I was afraid of this. Dying right now would be very inconvenient for me.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Aaawwwww sowwy, but life doesn't always work that way.
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:Indeed. Life can be... awfully unfair sometimes. I'm sure you would agree.
Fri Jul 21, 2017 7:09 pm
Lewis fires at Alex again, but his aim is off again and hits Alex in the right shoulder.
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:I knew this was a terrible decision. Oh well.
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:Hahahahaha, now there's an idea.
Fri Jul 21, 2017 9:10 pm
[NPC] Lewis wrote:......
UUUUUUGHHHH.... Diana noooooo!
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:Ah, now there's an excellent question.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Hey... babe... here's an idea...
...We kill him... and not worry about it! Okay?!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Because he has a death wish?
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Not a whole lot.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:......Because we're undead?... And we're only kill from headshots?
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Oh shit! I remember! Some of you mother****ers are already undead like us! So you wouldn't be afraid of dying, would you?
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:Death is my girlfriend, actually.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:......
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Ahahahahahaha! I think I like this guy!
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:I suppose my spirit would wander aimlessly through this dimension until another portal opened up. I could always follow you until you went through the mirror again, hiding in the walls and zip through the other side. After that I guess I would need to get another body from my superiors.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Holy shit this guy's unkillable!... Like some kind of super zombie!
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:That's a colourful way of putting it, but I suppose you're right. My connections with death give me a plethora of privileges. I can even survive in daylight. If you're interested, I could pull a few strings to give you two the same benefits.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:For reals?!
Well well well, maybe I judged too quickly. Sounds like this guy's useful enough that he outweighs the risks!
Alright then! Welcome to the Zombie Gang, new recruit!
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Y-Yeah, what she said!
Diana puts on her mask.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:Oh yeah...
Yeah, you're gonna need a mask.
Lewis puts on his mask.
[NPC] Lewis wrote:We're kinda going for a theme here, but if you had a mask with you I guess we could let you join...
But if you don't have one you'll just have to be our hostage.
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:A mask is it? Well, why didn't you say so?
Alex reaches under his hat for something.
[NPC] Blue Spirit wrote:How about this?
