Inspect[ | ]

You find a bunch of bones coming from humans and animals. Despite the visible mess of the pile, you feel like there's a certain logic, a meaning in their position, as if someone had carefully piled them up one by one to get this precise result. Could this be some sort of grave? Or an offering?

Check around (x1)[ | ]

You look around to find if there's something else besides the pile, but you only see trees surrounding you. The atmosphere is strange: you feel like the forest is watching you and is waiting for something to happen. You know it has something to do with the pile of bones, you can feel it. But, strangely, those bones stimulate an anxiety you can't explain.

  • Keep Your Calm (Courage)
Failure
Horrified, you cry out in fear and run away in the mist. That's when the so peculiar skeletal figure appears in front of you: you can't move, you're just frozen on the ground . You can only see it getting close to you and there's nothing you can do. It touches your forehead with the tip of his skull. Now, you feel terribly depressed, drained. Then, it touches your belly, around your stomach, and suddenly, you're starving. It then chooses to brush your chest, at your heart. You feel your muscles getting weaker, and your sight seems blurry. It approaches its head close to your lips, and you feel exhausted, as if you hadn't slept in days. When it finally touches your skin, a strong pain stabs you at the same spot, making you scream. The pain is so strong that you lose consciousness. When you open your eyes, you realise you're in the camp, where everyone is minding their business. Upset, you wonder if what you'vejustbeen through was real, or if you've been imagining things...
