A group of adults return to an area that they spent their childhood, and found a hidden world. They return to find it in ruins... What has happened?

Years ago a group of children wanted to escape their lives. They all had something that made them wish they didn't have to go home. They would play for hours in a deep forest on the edge of their own, East Oak. There they played many games, imagined many worlds and enjoyed life as best they could.

One day, they found a small stream they had never seen before. At the edge of the stream sat an upturned boat. Being children they saw a new opportunity for many games, and turned boat rightside up. As it sat in the water, they sat that the stream had a weak current. They all hopped into the boat and were filled with excitement as they were carried off on another adventure in the forest.

After a few minutes, the current picked up and boat was moving faster and faster. The forest became unrecognisable, and then they saw snow. A little at first, and then it was everywhere. The trees were bigger, thicker, the sky was brighter, the snow whiter than they had ever seen before. The boat fell a short distance and splashed into a large lake.

The children found themselves in a strange place. It was a new world. They had accidently unearthed a magical, hidden place filled with strange and wonderful creatures, odd plants, purple skies and swirling clouds. It was as if imagination had come alive. They spent the entire day playing there, having snowball fights and frolicing, tasting fruits off of tree branches and chasing strange birds with 19 eyes and four wings.

Their day was spent fast, and they wanted to go home, exhausted, but happy. As they returned to the lake, they saw that the boat was moving along a weak current, and it was clear that was how they would get back. They climbed aboard, and after a while, speed returned to the boat, and as they sped along the river, the snow turned to leaves, and the day turned to night.

They considered that day the happiest of their lives. However, a week after that, many of their parents moved away, they drifted apart as they grew older, and went to colleges and jobs across the country. One of them stayed, though. A young man by the name of Damien Creed. He was estranged, and he was eventually kept at home full time, being treated for a severe mental disorder. As far as any doctor could tell, he had a mental break around the time his friends moved away. He would never stop mumbling about "the lake" and he had developed terrible lapses in memory that caused him to forget his name, where he lived and even the face of his own mother. He would remember things sometimes, and others forget, but always mumbled about the lake.

The year is 2011, and the children are all adults now, living their seperate lives. They hadn't even thought of their old home town until they heard the terrible news... Damien Creed was dead.

Each of them headed straight for the town to make it to the funeral to see their old friend. Following the funeral, they begin to catch up in a cafe, and that's when they remember the place they had visited as children. They wanted to cheer up, and if there was one thing that made them happy in their lives, it was that forest on the edge of town.

The adults decided to head out to the old boat, and when they got to the forest, they found it quickly. They turned the boat upright, and it moved gently on the stream. They sat in the boat, thinking of their old lives, their old happiness, and their old friend.

The boat picked up speed and headed off. The view changed again, not into snow, but ash and dirt, dead trees and dark skies. The boat hit the lake with a crash, throwing them overboard.

Their childhood fantasy world had changed into a horrid, twisted version of its former self... But can they find out what happened? Will they ever know the truth?

This roleplay is for mature people as there will be heavy themes of violence, strong language and all that other good stuff.

The game starts just after the funeral when the friends are meeting up. :)
