Ah, when to the heart of man
Was it ever less than a treason
To go with the drift of things,
To yield with a grace to reason,
And bow and accept the end
Of a love or a season?



Rain beats down from the sky, filling the autumn morning with a fine mist and fog. It's hard to see more than a hundred feet ahead of yourself. The car which you have expecting, comes and picks you up.

You fill out the paperwork, and you nod to them as they hand you a brightly-colored watch. You can't see outside to see where you are being taken, but after a while the car stops. As it stops, you're given a blindfold.

Today is the day.


"Please remove your blindfold"

A voice speaks almost from directly next to you. You take off your blindfold.

You are in a room approximately ten feet across in any direction. The room appears to be made of metal plates. The floor is carpeted in a rich dark color. There are two sealed doors leading out of the room. The only light is an emergency-style red light above your head.

In the room is a desk with one drawer and a swivel chair. On the desk is a computer monitor and a keyboard. The only application on the computer seems to be a chat client. It seems that nine people are in the chat room. Each one is named after a color.

A prompt at the top at the chat reads:

Code:
Hello Players!

The game will be beginning in just a few minutes. Please take some time in the mean time to introduce yourselves!

The people here will be your future allies in the games! You will find it is very particular to win this game without the aid of others. Please remember that quite a lot of money is on the line.

- Zero


Below a conversation between the nine players begins to unfold as they await the official start...

Your bracelet reads $0,000,000.

[Yes, this means that your character is not visible to the other players. That will come later.]

[This is the introduction phase. You may post a maximum of four times. Once every player has done their introduction, you may all post as many times as you want as you wait for the next phase.]

Spoiler: Characters (Spoilers Within!)
Planetbox - Violet - Vivienne DuGrande
Bad Player - Green - Astrid Jepsen
DootDootDoot - Orange - Ember Ohring
Franzise - Brown - Stella & Cousteau
Southern Corn - Yellow - Hazel Hawthorne
Pierre - Purple - Maximillion Lauder
Datamatt - Pink - "Pink"
KamiPanda - Aqua - Wesley Naught
JesusMonroe - Red - Lukas "Luka"

Brown: Perhaps Orange is simply the type to sign something without reading the terms.
Brown: As for introductions, it seems as though I've been designated as "Brown". I suppose that will do for the time being. A pleasure.

Orange: Okay
Orange: Okay
Orange: It's not like this changes anything
Orange: We have to do introductions right
Orange: hey. I'm Ember Ohring. If you browse driveinstars you definitely already know me. If you read the Hollywood Informant you might unfortunately already know me
Orange: I'm a movie critic and a journalist, that's about all that there is about me

It seemed that 'Yellow' was not very used to typing normally on a keyboard. Their messages had distinct pauses between each other, and they appeared to be typing at a snail's pace.

Aqua: And so it begins.
Aqua: Please, call me... The Emissary.
Aqua: Forgive me for the anonymity, I am rather shy and don't wish to reveal my real name to you all.
Aqua: Please understand this in no way reflects my opinion of any one of you, it is merely my personal wont.
Aqua: With that out of the way, hello! I look forward to participating with you all.

Aqua: I sure hope this "Zero" hasn't unfairly chosen out participants who may be at a disadvantage here.
Aqua: That would be most unfair.
Aqua: Yellow, what would you like us to refer to you as?
Aqua: And on that note, Pink, how are you to be addressed?
Aqua: There's power in names, even false ones.
Aqua: However honesty, too, is a power in its own right.
Aqua: So don't feel bad, Ember.

Aqua: I'm sure we'll be given the rules in due time.
Aqua: I'm in no hurry.
Aqua: Getting worked up over this so early seems pointless to me.
Aqua: It is quite sad that already we are at each other's throats, but then, even if this is a game it is still being played in real life.
Aqua: With real people.
Aqua: Perhaps it is only human nature.
Aqua: In any case, greetings Pink and Hazel.

The messages seemed to come much faster than before. It seems that Orange had perhaps perturbed Hazel somewhat. There was a small pause after Red's message, after which the typing continued, back at its usual pace.

Yellow: why shoud bwe try the door
Yellow: they sa id htey d strat the game sometim soon
Yellow: i m too oldd an tried to gt up anywa y

Aqua: "The Emissary" is a nice title.
Aqua: There is not any particularly deep meaning behind it, though.
Aqua: I needed a name that wasn't my own.
Aqua: A name that could represent me without being me.
Aqua: A name to give me the resolution to see this game through.
Aqua: Truth be told I didn't originally intend to sign up for this.
Aqua: I would not normally have the motivation to compete.
Aqua: But by taking on this identity perhaps I can shine once again.
Aqua: I'll give it my all.
Aqua: Maybe we could take this time to learn a little more about one another?
Aqua: Only as much as we are willing to reveal of course.


"The Emissary", as they apparently wanted to be known, typed up all that while seeming to ignore all the discourse happening in between their posts. It made for a very disconnected soliloquy.

Purple: My dear rollickingly rambunctious Red! I fear your fears are fairly unfounded! Hohoho.

Purple: Surely you are here under the same conditions as the rest of us? The competition! The thrill! THE PRIZES! This is all just a game! Give it time and I’m sure all the preparations for us to start will be completed.

Hazel's posts seemed scolding and a bit firmer than they had been till now. They seemed to have taken shorter than usual to type as well.

Yellow: like everyone has alreay said thisis only a game
Yellow: just wait like good boys and girls and thewn we can aklr have a fun time together

Hazel didn't comment on the discussion about FHN. It didn't seem likely that they even knew of its existence.
