Delight's poll has closed, and Sorrow is the winner, a decision that we're sure no one will regret! But before the gods quite have a chance to get anything rolling this month - resurrection or a run-of-the-mill event - they have it taken out of their hands.
Sharon Da Silva (unitas) has had her fill of god nonsense, and on June 15th she will be handling her anger and fear in a healthy and constructive way. Yes, bits and pieces of Silent Hill will be affecting the city of Hadriel, summoned via her connection and powers. The gods, not expecting this at all, are going to need a bit of time before they can figure out how to fix it, so until then, well - we hope you like fog.
The city will be shrouded in it most of the time, the light above dim and somber. There may be one or two monsters in the fog, but generally it's pretty safe. Just creepy and kind of depressing, that's all! But stay alert. Intermittently, you'll hear the sound of an air raid siren - and that's when you want to maybe think about running. The city will temporarily change to a darker version of itself, staying that way for anything from a few minutes to a few hours before changing back again. You might see sigils on the walls of buildings, blood and bodies, rust and scorch marks, a twisted reflection of the usual Hadriel. And, of course, monsters.
When Hadriel changes, the barriers Hope uses to keep the monsters in the caves simply stop working. Anything from the bestiary can be found roaming the city, free to cause damage and stalk their prey and make life worse. As if that and the new Satanic aesthetic weren't enough, there's also the chance that you could have your own personal monster stalking the streets looking for you. These creature will be disturbing reflections of your subconscious - fears, regrets, and desires given twisted, uncomfortable form. This part of the event is opt-in, you don't have to have your own special monster if you don't want to!
When the sirens go off and the city changes, the only safe places in Hadriel are the god temples. No monsters can pass through the doors, although that does mean you'll be affected by the emotion of whichever temple you might choose to hide in. Still, you'll be safe. Unfortunately, there's no way to predict when the sirens will go off, and the temples have no food or other conveniences inside them. If you want to camp out there for the whole event, you can, but it's not gonna be easy, and hopefully you'll have some braver friends willing to go out and get you food, you weenie.
If you would like to try to talk Sharon down or stop the Silent Hillification of Hadriel some other way, feel free to plot with Lunare! But if no one else manages, the gods will finally figure out how to shut that shit down on June 20th. The fog will lift, the monsters will be safely locked away again, and the gods will be left with one hell of a headache.
► June 15th: The city gets foggy and weird. What is weather?
► June 15th-20th: Fog, intermittent cave monsters, freaky too-personal monsters, good times for all!
► June 20th: Everything goes back to normal and you can all leave those shitty temples
