Athena's group (well, just her) after the Rest Break SFH (scene G8). She comes to an untimely but edifying conclusion in this thread.
Scene K1 - Frozen Gallery
- Players at start of scene
The SFH car that has split off from the others comes to a stop in a station gripped in wintery colors. Sound of a cold wind whistling
- It's sole occupant, Athena, is quite underdressed for the conditions outside and for the first time feels fear.
- The car will go no further, until of course she exits; then it clams up and zips off at high speed.
- Athena is very much alone.
There is only one exit from the station, leading to a brightly lit, almost luminous room carved from ice. Glacial-blue and white are the dominant colors. There is no one moving in the room, but it *is* occupied.
- Scattered about are a series of fantastic sculptures carved seemingly from living ice.
- The subjects are almost entirely female and *are* entirely nude. They are exquisite!
- While Athena may be scared, she is also awed by the frozen beauty displayed.
Make this as long as needed, with whatever forshadowing is needed to set up the next scene. She hears someone coming, and hides behind one of the icy pillars. Players lost (none) Players added (none)
Scene K2 - Artist Sculpts a Figure [to be written by Bas]
- Players at start of scene
The noise resolves itself into a mechanical-looking man, possibly part wheeled robot, which appears from a side-cave
- [Let Bas describe him better but the image of 'Box' from Logan's Run comes to mind]
- Athena wants to turn and run, but for some reason she remains rooted to the spot
After a flowery speech about his purpose for existing (Fish, Plankton, Sea Greens!), he gets around to asking/telling Athena he wants to sculpt her for his gallery too.
- At the merest hint of 'my works of art are never sullied by garments' Athena doffs her bikini and boots
- By now the cold is not bothering her anymore, though the chill air brings her nipples erect
- We've already seen her nude (in the Wax Museum) but some additional description would be welcome; she's luscious!
Artist poses the adventuress on top of a plinth of ice and brings in another block as raw material
- He begins, wielding a torch-like 'freeze wand' that blows both hot and cold so to speak
- His arms move with frightening speed and vapors fill the cavern
When the dust clears, the figure of Athena is now entombed in a thick shell of ice from the wand.
- What can be seen of her body is pale bluish-white, obviously frozen solid.
- Her eyes remain open, staring, a look of surprise and horror frozen on her face.
Artist puts ways the 'raw' block (it is untouched, but now we can see there is someone inside it too) away
- Moves the ice statue of Athena to a well-lighted spot after some (a few seconds = eternity) thought. Her adventure is over.
