White Page Gulch, James-town. You stand in the dust of the main street. The glare of the midday sun bleaches out your surroundings. Here be a Wanted Poster, some ragged notes nailed to a pole, a mailbox and a sign. You are strangely unsurprised by a giant Pirate ship beached in the desert nearby. - A tattered broadsheet of disreputable provenance flutters by in the hot wind. The ink appears fresh. - examine mailbox The mailbox is a bright red cylinder. It looks curiously out of place. Above the dark horizontal slot are scratched the letters 'remove pie' - ex poster The poster displays the leering visage of the dreadful outlaw Daniel James. Beneath scrolls a litany of his unspeakable crimes. - A tumbleweed rolls past, stirring up dusty veils behind it. - ex notes The notes are faded and torn. One is titled 'A visit to The Gathering 98' and another 'Aggregators vs. MUDs', the third note, Olivia. - A rusty old tin can rattles past in the dry wind. - ex sign The venerable sign is muddy and paints a ragged list in faded letters. pick a point on the singularity graph the legendary interactive immortality questionnaire obligatory Burning Man image gallery learned treatise on online game design entire photo album, inc. cute baby shots and enormous great-aunts There follows some illegible text and finally the words 'Real Soon Now!' - exits You glance around anxiously, but cannot spot any exits! - whistle You whistle a doleful melody. - A leathery old cow boy approaches. He creaks as he swaggers. - The cowboy squints at you and hurls a scroll at your feet. 'Go on, git outta town!' he growls, spits and paces away cursing. - get map You pick up the scroll. - read scroll You unfurl the scroll. It is ancient and weathered. On one side, you discern a map of the lands here and far abouts. The other side of the scroll describes a straight path to a nearby western town known as San Francisco.
