Story[edit | edit source]
Chapter 1[edit | edit source]
Alex, a recent college graduate, puts off his responsibilities to explore a mysterious Factory in his home town of Frankton. There he finds his childhood friend Panda, and a mysterious girl named Sammy. While riding on an elevator to leave the factory, she gets abducted by beings made of stars. He comes home, unsure if what he saw actually happened. He receives an e-mail with a link to a post on ONISM1999, showing footage of Sammy on the elevator being kidnapped- but Alex isn't there.
Alex dreams of a bunch of robed figures surrounding an android. He's woken up by Panda, who is frustrated that Alex didn't chase after Sammy, and wants him to go and find her. Alex goes to reinvestigate the Factory Hotel, but first finds his other childhood friend, Michael. They discuss the footage of the "elevator girl." They both agree to investigate the Factory, since Alex claims the elevator footage is from there. Once they arrive, they are greeted by an entity. They manage to snap a few pictures before escaping near-death.
Chapter 2[edit | edit source]
Alex and Michael realize the photos they took were distorted by the entities, and they now understand they're dealing with something otherworldly. They post the photos on ONISM, and Alex says that more focus was put on the star creatures rather than Sammy, which upsets him. Two weeks after the post, WindWay87 posts "MYSTERIOUS GIRL WITH MIND POWERS", showing a mysterious girl that they both recognize from the arcade. The duo heads there to ask some questions to the girl. After a (violent) misunderstanding, they learn her name, Vella, and she gets interested in the online detective work they are doing.
Alex gets a PM from someone, saying their sister vanished in a similar way to the Elevator Girl. They call Vella up and head to Wind Town to investigate. There they meet Rory Mancer. He gets the trio to follow them to the sewer, and they encounter a soul survivor. Rory believes its his sister, but Vella convinces them that its his soul survivor, a result of him entering the soul space. Rory reveals that his sister didn't "disappear," but that she killed themselves. Alex, during this conversation, doesn't really give a shit. Out of nowhere, the Golden Alpaca appears and attempts to kill Alex, but fails. He then kills Rory's soul survivor, and challenges the party in a battle. He fails and they escape to the surface.
Alex is infuriated that Rory lied about everything, especially lying that it concerned Sammy, but Vella and Michael are bewildered to how cruel he's acting. Rory runs off, and Alex's friends hate him.
