A deafening, inhuman cry rings out in the night, seemingly all around you. They're coming. You look back to where you just were but find it completely unfamiliar. The world has shifted again, and what lies behind you is a completely new and alien landscape. What was once a small town is now a rolling hill, with a mountain stretching into the sky and casting a faint shadow from the dim light of the moon.

 

The sounds get closer as you pull out your box of matches and start fumbling for a light. The creatures are circling you, surrounding young, getting ready for the kill. You pull out a match but in your terror and trembling it falls from your hand. The creatures sense your vulnerability and start to rush you as you desperately scramble for another source of precious light. They are right around you and you can hear their inhumane gasps as they are about to take you.

 

The orange burst of your match comes swiftly and mercifully. The creatures immediately recoil and disappear into the darkness before you even have a chance to catch a glimpse of them, shrieking into the distance like something straight out of Lovecraft, or perhaps Dante. You are thankful that these were the kind that fear light. Not all of the creatures in The Wasteland are that easily frightened. You are still shaking with the knowledge that you were seconds away from total oblivion.

 

The light of the match flickers in front of you as at starts to dwindle. If you can survive until daybreak, they will stop coming. Your only hope is that you have enough matches to last until then...
