Recommended Posts

Remake of a scene from Matrix, name are changed to avoid legal issue.

 

The matrix awakening

 

After another normal day of magical spell-casting, luring another professor into another trap hole, and gotten another reprimand, you sat down at a seat in the cafeteria for lunch with your favorite I-am-still-alive themed rabbit stew.

 

A dark figure sat down across the table in front of you, he is a bald middle aged men wearing a long black leather vest and his eyes are invisible behind the circular mirrored glasses.

 

“At last.” – says the men with a smile and reached out his hand offering a handshake.

 

You reluctantly shake his hand, wondering if he is a visitor or a new professor.

 

“Welcome, @player_name@. I am Morpious, and I can see it in your eyes that you have a look of a person who will accept what he sees because you are expecting to wake up.”

 

What is he talking about? What is this waking up nonsense? Strangely, you have a feeling that he has a very important answer only he can provide.

 

“I don’t have much time left, but you have a gift, and by unlocking this potential, you will be free.”

 

“Free from what?” you asked.

 

“From the Lucid.”

 

You look at his eyes but you only see a reflection of yourself. Nervously, you ask what is the Lucid.

 

“The Lucid is everywhere, this room, your stew, your homework; everything is a fabricating to blind you from the truth. It’s the feeling you have had all your life, that feeling something was wrong with the world.”

 

You ask what the truth is, but suddenly the cafeteria becomes empty and hundreds of men in black robe rushing in from the entrance, exit, and windows.

 

“Unfortunately we are running out of time, you have to see it for yourself.

 

“How?” you asked.

 

Morpious drop a black pill on the left side of your stew and drop a green pill on the right side of your stew.

 

“You take the black pill and the story ends with you waking up in your bed and you believe what you want to believe.”

 

One of the men in black yells, “Stop! He is a lunatic who’s trying to drugs students! Don’t believe him!”

 

“You take the green pill and you stay in wonderland, but I will show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”

 

Wow, he really is trying to sell drugs! You obviously don’t want to takes any of his pills, but something about this situation feels weird.

 

Exit 1: Take the stew instead.

Clearly he is a lunatic and those men in black robe will take care of him, so you took your stew to another table far away and let the men take cares of him. One of the men in black comes up to you later and tell you he has been arrested and he promise to make sure you will never ever see Mobious again. Sounds good to you.

 

Event End

 

Exit 2: Drug is bad.

You are not going to take drug because it’s bad and so you choose to take your stew instead and move to another table while avoiding the men in black robe to continue the screaming rabbit feast while they surround the lunatic.

 

Event End

 

Observation: Something is wrong.

Success: This situation is not right; a wanted druggist is giving drugs to you and hundred of men in black robe come in from every direction to arrest him, yet he is cleanly unflustered by the event and patiently waiting for your answer.

 

Unlock: Courage Option

Unlock: Creativity Option

 

Fail: If it takes all these men to arrest him, maybe this Mobious guy is dangerous and probably an international wanted criminal.

 

Unlock: Incantation Option

 

Exit 3: Incantation: Blast the crazy drugger!

Success: You raise your wand at his face and cast a quick stunner spell to disable him long enough for the men in black to restraint him into their custody. One of the black robed men walk up to you and thanks for your assistance and told you they will interrogate him to reveal the rest of his friends especially the cult leader Neo the Chosen One, so you will never ever see anyone one of them ever again.

 

+1 Incantation

 

Fail: You try to blast him with a spell but he simply dodges it to the side.

 

“How unfortunate.” He says, then jump vertically up through the ceiling and make a big hole through the roof. What kind of spell is that!?

 

-1 Incantation

 

Perception : This is an impossible!

Success: You understand that the students is being teleported out of the cafeteria, but if all these black robed men are law enforcements, then why the professors is not assisting them? More importantly, why would you enjoy eating something stupid like a still-alive rabbit stew!?

 

Unlock: Awareness Option

 

Fail: Actually, this is just a high profile arrest that you rarely sees, so that's why you feel like it’s impossible.

 

-1 Perception

 

Exit 4: Courage: Take the green pill.

Success: “Nooooo!” the men in blacks yells in unison as you swallow down the pill. Your vision dampens while the world swirl around you and you woke up in sweat. What an interesting dream!

 

+1 Courage

 

Fail You just can’t do it; what if this is all there is to it and they are really just drug and those men are just regular agent.

 

“I see you are not ready, how unfortunate.” He says, then jump vertically up through the ceiling and make a big hole through the roof. What kind of spell is that!?

 

-1 Courage

 

Exit 5: Courage: Take the Black pill.

Success: “Yessss!” the men in blacks yells in unison as you swallow down the pill. Your vision dampens while the world swirl around you and you woke up feeling refreashed. What an interesting dream!

 

-1 Stress

 

Fail You just can’t do it; what if this is all there is to it and they are really just drug and those men are just regular agent.

 

“I see you are hesitant, maybe next time.” He says, and then jump vertically up through the ceiling and make a big hole through the roof. What kind of spell is that!?

 

-1 Courage

 

Exit 6: Creativity: Take both pills!

As a person who aspires for greater curiosity and pursuit of excitement, you wonder what will happen if you take BOTH pills? People do say drugs help the artist sees in a different perspective.

Success: If the black pill will make you retain reality, then you should take the black one first and then the green pill to ease up on the effect.

 

Then Mobious and the all of the men in black robes turned into rabbits. RABBITS!

 

“Well, that’s a first, this should be interesting.” Says the Mobious rabbit, and then it jump up through the ceiling and make a big hole through the roof. Cool~~~

 

+1 Creativity

 

Fail: If the green pill will make you go wild and the black one helps you retain reality, then you figure you should swallow the green first and then the black to wake you up later.

 

Your world turned upside down, everyone is laughing at you, everyone is poking at your nose, everyone giving you a rabbit stew for no reason and then climb on top of each other to form a S-shape tower while you put the stews away. Huh? what happening? You wake up being late to class.

 

+1 Perception

+2 Stresses

 

Awareness: This is not reality?

Success: Of course! This is obviously a dream! And you are aware of it! Maybe you can try the lucid dreaming thing you read about!

 

Unlock Concentration Option.

 

Fail: You feel this is real, and this place will turn into a battleground very soon!

 

Exit 7: Concentration: Focus and let’s do this!

Success: You concentrate and turn yourself to become the Super Wizard and begin blasting powerful columns of flame ray at the men in black robe and incarnated them all. Boy, you always wanted to do that!

 

“Interesting, it seems like you don’t need the pills after all.”

 

You agree and will yourself to wake up feeling refreshed.

 

-1 Stress

+1 Concentration

 

Unlock: Lucid Dreaming(Passive)

 

Fail: You tried hard, but you can’t get yourself to transform into Sir Almighty and woke up from being trampled by those men in black robe.

 

+1 Stress

 

Lucid Dreaming:

With the help of a proper rest, you can control dream to your heart's content! Rest actions now include a positive emotion.
