[Again, you are asleep and dreaming. And again, you find yourself visiting the Velvet Room.]

[But this time both the chair and the space beside it are empty; everything is still and silent, as if the elevator's come to a stop and the residents simply got off at their chosen floor. The music is still playing, though its source remains just as unseen.]

[Upon the table are two things--a card of your own personal Arcana, whatever it may be, and a note:]

To our esteemed visitor:

Forgive us for not greeting you in person, but we all have obligations to be seen to elsewhere at the moment. We hope that you will understand.

When last we met, my master told you that you would soon be able to enter and leave here of your own free will. Look before next the moon shines brightest for that opportunity to present itself--until then, take this as a gesture of good will and of my own elation at the prospect of again seeing you grace our presence.


[A few moments pass...perhaps long enough for you to read the note over again, or to examine the card Elizabeth left for you.]

[Not long after, you again wake from the dream--but in your hand is the specific tarot card that was on the Velvet Room's table, and with it comes a vague feeling that it is specifically yours.]

[note: These cards are such that if they're burned, torn, destroyed, or somehow lost, they'll reappear the next morning on the nightstand in your assigned hotel room. Even if you don't currently live there.]

[You are asleep.]

[Whether you turned in for the night, decided to take a short nap, or maybe just dozed off for a minute or two, you are sleeping. Often paired with sleep is dreaming, and that is just what you do. For it is in a dream you arrive on your own here, to a tall and narrow room of deep blue--though it is spacious and somewhat furnished, it appears to move upwards like an elevator. Piano music and an accompanying woman can be heard as well, quietly and with no visible source.

Before you there is a chair facing a table--sit down, make yourself comfortable. A long-nosed man in a suit sits opposite you, leaning on the table with his hands folded. Beside him holding a book stands a too-pale woman in blue with yellow eyes and silver-white hair.]

Welcome to the Velvet Room. )

[Note: Consider the World Arcana event to have officially begun! I know, it's about an hour earlier than I said it would be--as it happens, I am mildly concerned I won't be awake at midnight. Better safe than sorry~]

[The same pretty anchor that always seems to be bringing on this channel is now on the screen, bringing you today's big news.]

Breaking news. Emery Lis, a former US Senator famed for his hand in founded our community of Prospero and father of current Mayor Bryant Lis, made a public statement today that has already been gaining national attention.

[The video cuts from the anchor to the former Senator. He's standing in front of a crowd of reporters, and appears to already be part way through his address.]

"And thus, my fellow Americans, I believe in these tough times that we should look for guidance in our lives. Not just the guidance of our leaders but the guidance of a force not governed by man. I have found that guidance and as a man of integrity, know it is my duty to share it with you. The guidance of three, a moral stance of belief and understanding of the world around us. A belief in the higher power and what it can show us. Which is why I am going to be spreading the message to my fellow man. Starting with my own beloved city of Prospero, we will be building the churches of the three and starting down the path to a better tomorrow."

[The video cuts back to the anchor.]

No word on this incident by Mayor Lis; calls to his office have been met with replies of 'No comment.' For the full video of Senator Lis's statement, check our home page.

[The voice that is now pumping through your communicator will sound familiar to those on the island just before the zombie attacks. This time the voice has an irritated edge to it.]

This year is drawing to a close, according to your calendar. Have you enjoyed the year thus far? Have you enjoyed our trials? We have decided to be so kind as to let you go this time without any new test; we suggest you use the time wisely. It seems you are entering a time of merriment for the purposes of family and religion. [Those words are spoken in a harsher tone.]

We wonder, if you knew the truth, would those reasons still stand? In the upcoming seasons, we shall see.

[There’s a voice coming through your communicator, though the screen shows no information or signs that anyone is using the network. The voice is neither old nor young, neither male nor female; in fact it has no inflection to it at all and sounds more like something being read by a computer. You’ll find that no matter what you do to shut off the communicator, the voice still comes through. Yes, even if you break it.]

We thought you would appreciate some time to recover after your last trial. Did you have a good rest? We do hope so as your next task will not be as easy as the last.

We decided to give more time to prepare this time as you did not seem to heed our warning the last. In the coming weeks we will be continuing to test how worthy you are. We have seen what you can do against corrupted innocents but how well will you fight when facing yourself? We anticipate the end results.
