(set: $earthfriend to (prompt: "Last name, I promsise!:", "name" ))
Before we start, let us introduce our main character!: (print: $name)
And also...Well this one is a surprise: (print: $rainfriend)
One last thing... Our secondary character: (print: $earthfriend)
Okay, now to start!
[[Chapter 1]] Dad was rushing me inside. "Dad!" I said "What are you doing?" It's just rain, we're half water for goodness sake, rain is our friend!"
(print: $name), he said like he was scolding me. It's dangerous to go outside! Noto, the rain is killing people, it's to... earthy for us.
"Notore.. Dad what are we going to do?"
[[Meeting]] Dad brought me to one of our meeting rooms, which was normaly outside but was now covered by a light blue tent. This rain was seriously effecting our people.
"Attention people" The chief said, "This rain is pouring down on our homes and family members."
She paused for a second on family memebers as if thinking about all the people that had died. But she resumed
"There is something in the rain something like, sand and it is like posion to our people, we need someone to swim to the saltplaines and get help from one of the people there, they can stop this"
The cheif turned towards me and asked: "would you go, and save us (print: $name) ?"
[[You refuse to go]]
[[You elect someone to go instead]]
[[You agree to go]]
"No chief. I'm sorry, I... I can't"
"Alright, (print: $name) that is fine, it must feel very scary for you and that is natural"
"Everyone follow me to the bunker, it's the only way we can survive now"
You follow the cheif underwater into the bunker where you live for the rest of your life. You start forgetting about the surface, you keep living down there until the only memories you have are of the bunker.
[[Start again|Start]] "I don't think that I would be able to do this Cheif, but I think that (print: $rainfriend) would be able to survive.
"No, no (print: $name) I couldn't do it but what about Chris? He is one of the strongest here! He would be able to survive!
"Oh, oh (print: $rainfriend) you flatter me, of course I'll go!"
''One Week Later''
"(print: $name)! Notor!, Chris died on his travels! He was killed by a guard. You need to go and save us!
[[You have to go|Chapter 2]] "Yes cheif, I will go"
''2 hours later''
After packing your bags and saying by to your dad and your friends. You bump into (print: $rainfriend).
"Oh. (print: $rainfriend) I wasn't expecting you to.."
"Say, goodbye, I know but I wanted to wish you good luck on your travels"
"Oh well good luck to you too."
[[Start the journey|Chapter 2]] I left my house and quickly covered up head with a hood, it was
barely protection but it was a short run to the water, and the water was were I would be safe, I was a Tro after all. I jumped in and felt my hood come off I intstantly transformed in to my full Tro form. A sea monster.
[[Continue on the journey]] ''A few days later''
I looked in my pack and saw I was running out of supplies.
"Guess I didn't pack well" I mumbled to myself
"Okay" I thought out loud, "I am running out of both food and water but what should I look for first?"
"Food" I said I'll look for food.
I started scavenging the barren land I had emerged on but I couldn't find anything. "I have to turn back" I thought. I winced. This was possibly the worst decision I had to make in my life, but I turned around and jumped in the water.
[[Try again|Continue on the journey]] Water, I'll look for water. I am a Tro after all. I filled my bottle with salt water from the ocean. It was completley safe for me to drink.
I took a sip of the water and instantly felt stronger, ready to go on my journey.
[[The Saltplaines|Chapter 3]]
I truged my final step of the dessert, as I drank the final sip of my water. Just in time I felt the softness of the grass seeminly appearing out of nowhere. I looked up and saw the giant tent of the chief.
"Now to sneak in, but how?"
[[Steal some of the guards armour]]
[[Just sneak in using the door]]
I sneaked behind a guard and found a closet, a closet full of armour!
"What luck!" I thought, "It's like I'm in a video game!"
I slipped some armour on over my clothes and carefully walked next to another guard and secretly slipped inside.
[[Find help|Chapter 3.5]] I slipped in through the door and looked around. Suddenly I felt something move benath me and lift me up, higher, and higher, and higher.
When I felt the mechanisam stop I looked around again, there was a giant window, I looked through it and saw how high I was. A shiver sent through me.
I saw next to me there was a tall latter, on my other side there was the machine that took me up here. They could both be traps.
"How do I get down?"
[[Machine]] I climed down the latter and jumped the final rung.
[[Find help|Chapter 3.5]]I stood back on the machine and it slowly lowered me down to the final level
[[Find help|Chapter 3.5]] I looked around the bottom floor of the tent. The floor was just grass and the tent walls were brown and white. There was nothing //in// it though.
I looked up and saw a girl sitting criss-cross applesauce staring at a wall. I aprroached her.
[[Talk to her]] "Uh, excuse me" I said cautiously
"Hi, uh my name's (print: $name)"
"Hello (print: $name), my name is (print: $earthfriend)! Did you want to tell me something?"
Uh, yeah" I took off my armour and told her my secret and my story.
"So you need help!" (print: $earthfriend) said. "Of course I'll help you!"
I smiled and looked up at (print: $earthfriend). "Thank you!"
[[Turn against and attack|Ending 3]]
[[Lead her back to your kingdom|Ending 4]] I pulled out my only weapon, a kithen knife and slashed her on the face with it. The knife opened a cut on her cheek and it started bleeding. She looked up at me and ran away.
''One Year Later''
Because of what I did a war started bettween the 2 groups and it has been going on since that day. The rain keeps killing more people.
becuase no one stopped it.
I lead (print: $earthfriend) back to my kindgdom, helping her swim and sharing my limited supplies.
When we got to my kingdom I quickly put up my hood. However (print: $earthfriend) spun around like ahe had never seen water before. Which was strange, to me atleast.
(print: $earthfriend) crouched down and touched the earth. She closed her eyes and the rain stopped.
I gasped, and took a step back the other people on the island slowly came out of their tents. A cheer went up through the crowd.
She had done it. We were free.
[[Discover]] Thank you for playing Dark Rain!
[[Back to start|Start]]
I ran into my house after the seahorse festivsal. I took off my hat and collapesed on the ground. I closed my eyes and when I opened them I saw (print: $rainfriend) looking over me. I sat up and saw a girl tied to a chair with a gag in her mouth. (print: $rainfriend) was holding a silver ball with raindrops in it.
Raindrops... I slowly put it all together. All the evil looks I had gotten after me and (print: $earthfriend) had saved the town.
"You did it! You made the rain! And that girl!"
"Yes (print: $name) I did it, and this girl."
She paused and pointed at the girl
"She has the power to, find things. Once she even stood up against a giant glue bottle"
