You come into possession of an old box. Inside are several glass vials filled with dirt, dust and tiny bits of gravel or cement. The vials are labeled with places and dates such as “Port Chicago 7/17/44″, “Halifax 7/6/17″ and “Guernica 7/17/36″. A trip to the library confirms that all are dates of massive loss of life in explosions. A few days later a package arrives with no return address.

Inside is an empty vial labeled with your home town and next week’s date.

    Once that happens, I pack up my things, take them to my nearest relative’s house, and knowing there’s no time to sell my home, buy every house insurance policy there is (tornado insurance, flood insurance, nuclear explosion insurance, etc.).

    Then I tell everyone I know, and if they don’t believe me, I be sure not to forget to stand over their funeral pyre and say “I told you so”.

    This sounds like a shitty situation, but the best way to handle it would probably be as Readman said.

    The first thing that came to mind upon reading “Inside are several glass vials filled with dirt, dust and tiny bits of gravel or cement” was Jack Sparrow and his jar of dirt.

  • A Person From Halifax.

    FYI – the date that you have for the Halifax Explosion is incorrect. It is actually 12/06/1917.

    …Unless you were trying to make all the dates in July. Either way, still a very awesome piece. =)

    This sounds like a premise for a game involving a conspiracy. Similar to Devil Survivor\’s.

    I\’d play it.
