april fool's day mini-event
It began with a small click deep underground, one that echoed across the miles separating the various major cities with metahuman activity. Click, click, click, click, click. It was neat and elegant, followed by the resounding clunk of something metal settling into its groove. A pneumatic hiss sounded softly, the protest of air escaping a tube as the pressure normalized, and then all was still, as though things had never been.
It was a silent change as it leaked upwards through the vents and pipes, snuck through the cracks of the windows and the doors to find its way into unassuming lungs. When the reports came back, hours later, after the trouble had started, the results were clear. What had once been a batch of perfectly good, sound joker gas had been combined with a pocket of fear gas, the sort that had been contrived by scarecrow but refined by the children of arkham for their own use; the result had then fermented into something that was neither of the two, a decidedly potent mixture which had effects dramatically different from the either of the original components.
With mysterious changes affecting any who have inhaled the gas, it seems that this April Fool's Day prank has gone horribly wrong. Although the effects only last twenty-four hours, the consequences may endure for far longer. So... are you feeling daring enough to try your luck at being the king of fools?
We're having a small April Fool's Day mini-event! For the entire month of April, for every character who posts in this thread, we'll assign them a given "effect" that will last for the duration of the "day" in character. This is meant to be fun, so please don't take this too seriously. People can have as many characters given effects as they like, but please do keep in mind that the effects may be either positive or negative.
As per usual, everyone is more than welcome to continue threads after the event has ended, but we won't be rolling any more people after this thread closes on May 1st, so keep that in mind! We hope you'll enjoy this event as much as we will!
