Box of Hope


If hope were in a box… would you get it?


What is hope? Hope, for most people, is the feeling that something can happen even when the odds are stacked against it. Others say it’s an expectation. What if hope had a physical form? What if all the powers of hope were in a container? That it had the power to win any battle, help discover any item, cure any disease, and achieve any dream? If hope were in a box… would you get it?

The catch? There's only one.

For centuries, this magical item has been both the bane and elixir to the inhabitants of this planet. It helps any who can get their hands upon it… no matter their intentions or wishes. Once a year, it can be used. Then after, it disappears… where it goes, only god knows. Sometimes it’s a city, or perhaps a jungle…. Waiting for days, weeks… maybe even years before someone happens to find it. Though once it is found, it would need a week before it can be used. This is to warm it up for its use… and allow anyone else the chance to take it.

So now we are in the present day. In a chain of events that involved three idiots and a cannon, the cube has now made its way into the city of SoaH. Engraved on the very shell itself, is this message:

“Contained within this box lies the hopes and dreams of millions… open and see your true destiny.”

To whom it may concern, this small relic will start and ignite a chain of events that will snowball into an experience that could shake the very foundation of the city to ruin…

The Forest of Flesh

       By: Kid Cannibal

The party has found the source of the strange creatures roaming the countryside. The rift in this reality glows with a silver hue, rippling with the wind but never moving. They step through and are immediately assaulted with the scent of rotting meat, some have to muster all their strength not to vomit. Strange cries similar to the beasts the party had faced before can be heard in the distance. Looking around, they see they are in a forest of grey and red rather than the normal brown and green. The trees are sticky to the touch and writhe, perhaps to get away or perhaps as a warning.

The deeper the party goes, the more the forest seems to slither and move underfoot. The cries get closer and more numerous. Creatures lurk in the shadows, all the same color of their surroundings. Whatever the party came in here for, they had better do it fast.

The forest of flesh is waking up, and it is so very hungry.
