Default You awaken...

...in a wooden cabin, with no memory of how you got there. The cabin contains a bed, a table and a chair. On the table lies a book titled surviving Australia. You are naked, with clothes (pants, undies and a blouse) lying on the chair and shoes next to the bed. You can hear the sound of the ocean.

What do you do?

Hang yourself using the clothes. Given the book next to the table, you are probably in a place where everything wants to kill you. Don't give them the satisfaction!

You hang yourself. As you feel the snap of your neck, your last thought is satisfaction.



You awaken in a wooden cabin, with no memory of how you got there. The cabin contains a bed, a table and a chair. On the table lies a book with the title '*word you don't recognize* Australia'. You are naked, with clothes (skirt, panties, bra and a blouse) lying on the chair and slippers next to the bed. You can hear the sound of the ocean. There is an odd smell in the room, like it's just been cleaned.

I curse the bottle of Tequila I insisted on finishing, and then go back to sleep.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

Check if the clothes are clean. If they are, get dressed. Maybe get dressed if they're not too unclean too. Look outside and see if it looks like Australia. If it does, read parts of the book before going anywhere.

Under your breath, you curse "Vete al infierno, tequila". As you crawl into bed, you feel a sharp jab in your side. While your first instinct is to check it out, you suddenly feel overwhelmingly tired.



You awaken in a wooden cabin, with no memory of how you got there. The cabin contains a bed, a table and a chair. On the table lies a book with a title in some western language. You are naked, with clothes (pants, undies, socks and a blouse) lying on the chair and shoes next to the bed. You can hear the sound of the ocean.

The clothes are cleann. The clothes appear to be made for an adult, so they're slightly oversized for you, but you put them on anyway.

You take a peak out the door and take in your surroundings, though you do no t know what an "australia" is. The ouside looks like this:



You gander at the book's pages, but they are also written in some western language. However, it seems to repeat the same phrase over and over.

I thought they might be different for me! I just want to know if it fits, covers me up, and protects me from the elements.

The only items in the shack are the book, your shoes and the bed-sheet. The only exit is the solid wooden door. There are no windows.

It's too big, it covers you up and the long pants are a bit too warm for this weather.

Smash the chair into smaller pieces. Find a piece which can make a suitable club with which to defend yourself.

You decide that it would be a good idea to walk on your hands the rest of the day. Try, atleast.

Go outside and look for a sharp rock to shorten the pants. Keep the residue.

With all the meagre strength at your disposal, you grab the chair by its seat, lift it in the air, and bring it shattering down onto the ground. You pick up one of the former legs to use as a club.

Is there anyway I can tear or cut the clothes to make them shorter or smaller?

So there are no sharp stones, I suppose.

Would it be more convenient to simply not wear pants and just carry them around, in case they're ever useful?

I will roll them up then so they are shorter. I will grab the book and go outside.

Sheesh. Put some clothes and shoes on first, at least.

There are no rocks within the shack.

You roll up your pants, helping deal a little with the heat, though the thickness of the material still makes you uncomfortably warm. In addition, your pants are still saggy. You pick up the book and go outside.

Go back to the room and check the shoes for scorpions (yes, this is a real concern). If there aren't any critters in there, wear those shoes.

See? If we had gone outside, like the Nazja part of I said, we might have found rocks.
