[Action for Mac Anu]

[Hugging his grimoire to his chest, Clive wanders aimlessly about the unfamiliar city, taking in all the sights. Although he is rather overwhelmed by the unexpected change in location (and attire), he has to admit that this is a very beautiful city. He's never seen anything like it in his entire life.]

It beats being stuck in a prison cell, at least...

[He lets out a sigh and looks around for a bench to sit on; carrying this giant book around gets tiring really quickly. Once he's seated, he sets his grimoire down beside him and digs out a strange device from his pouch. Whatever it's supposed to be, he's rather impressed with the sleek design. Clive spends a few minutes just examining the object before he presses his index finger on the "Touch me!" message on the screen. To his surprise, the screen actually changes to show some sort of menu. It seems that touching the corresponding icons also takes him to different screens.]

What a fascinating little piece of technology. I never would have even imagined that it was possible to build such a device.

[Until he figures out what he should do next, Clive is perfectly content with just sitting here and messing around with the Relic. Touch screen technology hasn't been invented yet in his world, so he'll be entertained by it for quite a while. Anyone is free to bother him, of course.]


[Once he discovers the public board feature, he decides to post a very simple message, which... actually takes him some time to type out because what are touch screen keyboards.]

Could someone explain to me what's going on here?

It is, isn't it? While I have seen others like it, this was the first I have had the opportunity to use.

[What the, where did this guy come from.]

Yes. And there are many that are quite unlike them.

I am... ill-suited to keeping track of time, but I am certain I have been here for at least one hundred and twenty five human "days".

[It's actually closer to 136.]

Regrettably, I have an answer to neither. I am curious as to the method, however. I will be sure to let you know if I discover something.

[A little further down the street comes the sound of a familiar voice and a sight of a... not so familiar top hat? It would appear that even the Professor is vulnerable to the wardrobe change]

-a small trade. I don't really know what I would do with all these small fishes anyhow.

[blue was a rather popular colour in The World... Or maybe he was just distracted by the NPC he was speaking with]

[at the sound of someone calling him, Hershel turns to look-]

Clive!? [And he jogs over to meet Clive halfway] It's been a month since I first arrived here. But what of you? I never expected to see you here as well. Are you all right, my boy?
apropergent: (Even though it passes with time)

[personal profile] apropergent 2012-08-21 02:37 am (UTC)(link)
[oh well then- wait, I beg your pardon?]

A couple of hours? That- [a pause, before he reaches up to grab the brim of his hat] Good heavens, not this time travel business again.

[personal profile] resipiscence 2012-08-21 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, I don't know.

[ aaand there's a voice coming from above you. from the branches of a tree, actually, if you have to be specific. the boy with the long hair smiles down, perched with his legs dangling. ] I'd say this would be another sort of prison.
resipiscence: (to winning the nationals; I mean)

[personal profile] resipiscence 2012-08-21 05:01 am (UTC)(link)
[ and here, he tilts his head, as though thinking about this. ] You could be right. I've never been in a prison, but I'd imagine the food here is much better.

And, of course, you can see the sky.
resipiscence: (i came)

[personal profile] resipiscence 2012-08-21 05:38 am (UTC)(link)
[ ahhh that's interesting. like a twist of fate. ] It's one cage for another, but I wouldn't deny this is a better outcome.

I'm Aphrodi, by the way. Who're you?
isolates: (if you say so)

[Omg noob.]

massively multiplayer online role playing game. are you one of those people who come from worlds that dont have computers and games and stuff??
isolates: (gonna think about it)


[personal profile] isolates 2012-08-22 07:13 am (UTC)(link)
well there are games called rpgs where you control a certain character and make them go on adventures or fight monsters or save the world. only except of controlling a character youre actually inside the game and no one really knows why were here.

the game mechanics are still the same though. you can go to fields and dungeons to fight monsters to earn levels and items. the higher level you are, the stronger you are.
