You’re in This Story Now

You find yourself standing in a room filled with weapons. There are an assortment of weapons to choose, but you’re not interested in any weapons. You just want to get out of the castle alive.

To be honest, you don’t know how you got into the castle in the first place, nor do you remember what happened BEFORE you came to the castle. But all you know is that you’re stuck in the castle with no way to escape.

Except through the weapons room, where almost no one dares to venture.

You eventually discover a secret door behind a row of suits of armor; the door swung inward, leading to a flight of stairs in a dark hallway. Taking a lantern by the door, you close the door and walk down the steps, but not before taking a small sword with you. After all, you need to defend yourself in the strange new world you’re in.
