You don’t know where you are. The only thing you’re certain of is your name, and that you’re somewhere you’ve never been before.
You feel in your pocket. Oh yeah. You received an invitation to come to Dangan Castle, to reward you for excelling in your field.
But why don’t you remember coming in?
You hear an announcement over the castle from an overhead intercom.
“Please gather in the main hall.”
You don’t know how, but you knew exactly where the main hall was. You look around to see quite a few other people look just as confused as you are.
You’ve never seen these people in your life.
Soon two wide doors at the end of the hall swing open to reveal a sharply dressed man, who almost looks like he’s smirking.
“Welcome, dear guests, to my castle. I’m glad to see you’re all awake.
My name is Simon. And I will be your host for our event.
Now then, onto explanation. I’ve brought you all here because you’re specialists in your field. I, for instance, am Super Level Archaeologist.
But you see, I am also Super Level Mastermind.” He chuckles, and you know right then he’s up to no good.
“I have composed a small game. For my enjoyment mostly. You all will fight til the bloody death. To see who truly excels over everyone here.”
His smug, red eyes look at everyone in the room, and you’re almost certain he looked at you longer than anyone else, which sent a chill up your spine.
Everyone in the room erupts into gasps and cries of ‘You’re mad!’. Your host doesn’t seem phased by this.
“You have all been assigned rooms. After this meeting is over, you shall go to your chambers. There is a list of rules and regulations that will be met without question. Lest I have to step in.
And then. The game will begin.”
His face finally changed from a bored, almost smug expression, into a warm smile.
