Reform; scramble through to be reborn Survive seven days the urban hive Endure the constant ploy of Death's envoy Forfeit your closest joys to hush the Noise May the Reaper have mercy on your soul. ----- "Welcome to St Paul's Underground. I hope you are all aware that you are dead. Your manner of death is of no concern-- hit by a car, drowned in a pool, shot by an adversary; it makes no difference. What matters is that you have all been selected to participate in the Reapers' Game. You have seven days. A mere week to complete tasks that the Reapers assign to you, keeping to a strict time limit. Failure to meet said limit will result in your very essence being erased from existence. These tasks range from simply reaching a location on time, to defeating monsters that you could not see while alive, to finally defeating the Game Master, the Reaper in charge of the week's game. Your resolve and resourcefulness will be put to the test. Your perception of what is true will be strained. You may face physical dangers you would never have imagined. Your sole ally in this struggle is a single partner, without whom you cannot survive. On the first day, you will make a pact with another player, and they shall become your partner. Until you achieve this, you will be unable to fight the Noise, you will be unable to defend yourself against the Reapers, and you will still be subject to the time limit like your more fortunate peers. You may be wondering at this point what you gain out of any of this. Is this simply a game to amuse us higher powers? Perhaps, despite what its purpose truly is. You do, however, have a choice in the matter. You may wish to simply not participate in the Game-- and that's fine, if you welcome oblivion. If you still cling to the thought of life, though, you will put your Soul at stake, stretch your Imagination, and take up your partner's hand in combat. Not all is pointless scrambling about to delay the inevitable- if you make it to the end, you may be able to return to life. It all depends on how well you perform. Even in this Game, where fate seems to have been twisted into the most inhumane thing, you will always have your faith. And with that, I hope to see you again in seven days. Good luck."
