Althought I didn't notice the changes of the backround, what I did notice most was the HP hitting 0. If only because I was having a GOOD day and I had no choice but to panic.


I don't usually post on the forums, but I do read them.

I wish I hadn't missed these little things. Serves me right for playing games during classes. (And of course people playing on mobiles would generally not see cosmetic changes like that.) But heck, the story was scary enough without it. Now, though, I have to wonder what part the bunny played in all this...

Noticed the logo go, nothing else.

Now to go blow this builder's brew on a voluntary quarantine camp.

Can I come visit?
It was well-written and I've been reading it over and over again. Does anyone know what happens if you try to run?
-snickers- I want to visit his house!

2, 32 for those of you who intend to play your character as having been affected.

Yup. Get away, unharmed, return to an outpost. Dunno if you get a second chance.


Thank you.

So, did anyone notice the logo and gamma changes during the story, or were they too subtle?

Glad you mentioned the gamma change, CMJ - I just thought my monitor or eyes had gone wonky for a minute. Didn't notice the logo change - you shouldn't have said anything, just waited until somebody did notice! *evil grin*


Thank you.

That's the boring option.

There's one line that stuck with me... I liked it a lot for that reason. Almost gave me chills. I won't say it due to spoilers, but I think people will know which one I mean when I say: it had the word "bad" in it.

I noticed the background change, but I got a new monitor very, very, very recently, and thought it was because of that.

Didn't notice the logo. I was too busy worrying about the creepy that my character was interacting with.

I have a love for well-written creepypasta. As soon as I saw that people in this thread were talking about something interesting, I had to run off to the jungle to find out.

Freaking awesome. In every way. Looooove it. It was amazing. Wanna see more of this genteel chap. and etcetera. Must say my favorite surreal aspect was his manner of speech.

I didn't notice the background changing, but I did spot the logo and the HP drain.

Also, anyone know what the DK requirement is on this story, Maiko's quest, and Rohit's story?

Rohit has no DK requirement, it's just a random chance. I actually encountered it while doing the museum quest on my rookie alt.
Maiko's has a 5 DK requirement, I believe.
I don't know what the requirement for the new one is, if there is one. The lowest I've heard is 10 DKs, but that's just from random polling in Banter.

HP drain.


I must be pretty unobservant, because I didn't notice that at all. Frown Or the background gamma.

A wonder, CMJ: could there be an ingame thing that lets us 'reset' the (non-Dan) quests we've done, so we can read through them again? Maybe remove the museum/Rohit rewards on repeats, because you just know people would farm it for cigarettes, otherwise.
