Sandstorms and getting lost

Started by deconstruct99, May 19, 2008, 02:27:57 AM

So today my character stepped out of the gates of a city into a sandstorm. I said oh shit a sandstorm and just clicked to go back the other way. Somehow my character doesn't have the sense to just turn back to the gate and go inside. He somehow loses his barrings. Now I find myself walking around in a sandstorm for the last -two hours- and I am on the verge of dying of dehydration. I'm tired, i want to go to bed, but I am stuck in a never-ending sandstorm. Why in the world would my character not have the sense to just turn the hell around?

The longer a PC lives, the more likely they will die to something stupid.

Because your character stepped out into, and was enveloped by, a sandstorm.

In the future, you can type 'weather <direction>' to check the weather before leaving the safety of the city.
