On the morning of January 16th, some of you are going to wake up and realize that you aren't exactly where you were when you went to bed. How were you moved? Why are you in a box? Why is your phone in your hand? It's a mystery!
It will become very clear in a very short period of time that you, and many others like you, have been buried alive. What's more is that, though you think you may run out of oxygen in 5-24 hours, depending on what you read on the internet before you were taken away into the Murdercave, in actuality you have about three days worth of air before you suffocate! That's right, this means that for every buried-alive character, if they are not rescued by January 19th, they will suffocate in their coffins and be subsequently revived by Hope. Not the most fun way to go...
But Hope is doing far more than just reviving everyone at the end of the event- shortly after he realizes what's going on, he will subsequently make a post to the network revealing the locations of where everyone is buried. Unfortunately, he can't tell you who is buried where, but at least we've got some help, right?
Rage isn't necessarily slacking off, either. While she won't directly help and put herself between Hope and Fear, she will stock her armory with shovels, ripe for the digging! Aboveground folks are free to try to coordinate rescue attempts, pass out shovels, or just ignore everything else and continue about their day- it's up to them.
Buried characters will have their phones on them, which can provide light, as well as a way of communicating with other buried characters and their would-be rescuers. However, there will be no food or water provided- this isn't a bed and breakfast! This means that hunger and dehydration might be an issue, particularly for those rescued on day 3.
Feel free to handwave rescues if you don't have time to coordinate one and just assume that somewhere along the lines, your character has been dug up or has dug someone else up! We're not trying to force deaths on anyone, but if anyone does want to kill their character, here is the Death reporting page!
The event will be ending on January 19th, when every character will either be dug up or, regrettably, dead. In the event that a non-breathing character is left underground, then there will not be a timely divine rescue- unfortunately, you're just gonna have to stay there until someone digs you up, or Fear eventually realizes that you're still 'alive' and transports you back. You might want to talk to him about that...
And without any further delay, here is the chart for how characters will be sorted!
To Be Buried
Sam (Until Dawn)
Sharon da Silva
The Alcohol Demon
Chris (Until Dawn)
To Remain Aboveground
Ashley (Until Dawn)
If anyone has any questions or would like to move their character to another list for whatever reason, please let the mods know and we'll try to fix it! Happy digging!
► January 16th: Half the characters wake up to find that they are buried. Later in the day, Hope makes a post with the grave locations and Rage stocks the armory with shovels
► January 19th: The oxygen in the coffins run out and those of you still buried have bigger problems to worry about.
