Player: Witch of Heart
Land of Pools and Masks: A tropical land of humid, misty jungles and damp caverns. Round pools of various sizes dot the landscape. Droplets fall from leaves and stalactites, disturbing the calm waters. Beneath the surface, there is a vast network of caves connecting all the pools together. The player’s home arrives at the centre of a large pool with the ground floor submerged slightly in the water. The liquid in these pools has the odd property of retaining the colour of whatever is reflected in it when it is removed from the pools. This water has been used to keep the land painted its vibrant colours for eons. Ancient masks, painted in this manner, decorate the landscape. Their smiling faces and exotic patterns are proudly displayed and hung throughout the jungle and patterns of stencilled faces litter vast echoing caverns.
Consorts: Parrots. They live in brightly decorated huts suspended in the trees or by the pools. Their culture is based on mimicry. They copy habits and traits that they see and wear masks that represent their resultant personality. Wearing masks gives them confidence and they maintain a cycle of happiness.
Denizens: Glaucus and Scylla. Glaucus dwells in the underwater tunnels and it is by his power that the water retains its colouration, but he is neglecting his duty and doting on Scylla as she bathes. Scylla, however, is deterred from him because of his appearance and vehemence.
Quest: As Glaucus continues to disregard his obligation, the colours of the land begin to fade. Without colour the consorts will lose their ability to express themselves, their very identities, and become identically mundane and shy. The player is tasked with finding a way to bring the colour back.
Choice: Glaucus wants the Witch of Heart to find a way for Scylla to get over his appearance and have them be together so he can return to his duty with her by his side. However the Witch decides to resolve the situation, one of the denizens will have to change in a major way, determining how the player truly views what is important in love and life.
