Choose your Misadventure

Perplex City is in danger! Over the past few days, everyone who has entered the Mimasan Maze has disappeared. You are young, intelligent and ready for action, as long as it doesn't involve zombies... or lemons. They always give you the willies. At the deserted maze's entrance, your first choice presents itself: will you take the tunnel route (Chapter I), head up the ladder (Chapter XIV), or go down the eerily dark slide (Chapter IV)?

XVII This leads you into some sort of dressing room. Brightly coloured jester's outfits line the walls. Two jester paintings hang on the wall, both looking eerily alive. Startling you, one of them mumbles "Well, are you going to wear it or not?" Then the other says, "Put it on. Go on, you'll look good. I'd wear it. Take a chance. It's worth it, I promise." Although you've never relied on advice from a painting before, maybe now is your chance. After all, they look old and sage, but perhaps that's just the cracked paint. Will you wear the jester's suit (Chapter XXI) or go through the door without it (Chapter XXIV)?

XVIII The door turns out to be a back entrance into the central chamber. Right in front of you sits a huge monster, facing away. Peering round the side of his throne, you can see red-faced people doing the can-can. A loud chuckle echoes off the walls. You must stop this madness. They aren't even any good at the can-can! You'd attempt to fight the monster but fancy keeping your bones in one piece and, preferably, inside your body. It's time to think fast: will you try and reason with (rather foul-smelling) monster (Chapter IX); or break his spell by tearing the jester's hats off the people (Chapter III)?

XIX "Stupid monster. What's wrong with you? I don't want to dance. Everyone hates you. Why don't you just disappear?" The monster looks at you in horro, his eyes widening. A single tear rolls down his cheek and, with a whimper, he vanishes. You've won! You're mean but you've won. And everyone is free! Free, and dressed in jester's outfits! You take this chance to laugh at everyone else, then make your way out of the maze. Life is back to normal. At least, for now...
