In Your Mind

In Your Mind


A gas leak prevents the over time employees working at CityDex, Ltd. from leaving. The gas is harmful to humans and causes terrible hallucinations. No one knows how long they will be stuck at the office or if they will even survive.

The Beginning


To: { Subject Group: Employees }


CityDex, Ltd. Employees, 

I apologize to inform you of the following events on such late notice, but The Administrative Team has just found out. Right now we are under quarantine due to a toxic gas leak in the the ventilation system therefore we cannot leave the building. 

The gas has very harmful effects on humans and the CDC[?} does not want to endanger citizens at risk. Although the gas will not kill you, it will produce realistic hallucinations that can place you or those around you in danger. 

If you were in the building overtime today, you will not be leaving the office until we can all be treated. 

I am truly sorry for the inconvenience. Please feel free to use any resources that we have here and try to stay as comfortable as possible while this gets sorted out. We do not know how long we will be in here. Please stay calm at all costs, it is necessary to our survival.

What ever you do: Do not let the hallucinations get to you. THEY ARE NOT REAL.

The intercom broke the overall silence in your office block, producing a few static noises, before your boss, Lee Ashford begins speaking shakedly and urgently.

“Attention all employees at CityDex, Ltd: Please do not try to leave the building. All windows and exits are locked shut for the protection of the citizens of Woodside. Electricity will continue to -Sir, can you please wait one moment?- run from our generators since we are being cut off from the rest of the city. However, you will not have any internet access.
Please stay calm and - Sir, please put your weapon down! There is no need for that!- do not let the hallu- Please don’t hurt m…- hallucinations get to you. Nothing is real.”

Panic breaks out and the employees begin reacting crazily. Luckily, due to the fact that the office had closed roughly two hours before, none of the office wings were exceedingly busy and little commotions settled down after a few minutes. Some employees have tried to leave, but failed utterly, meeting their death one way or another. Others raided the cafeteria and hauled what they could back to secretive locations where they would be hiding out.

This roleplay centres around the employees, the relationships they build, the hallucinations they experience, and their story of survival. You will take on the role of an employee.


Following are the hallucinations you may experience. (All characters must experience them, no being immune or the like.)

  • An armed man. A man with a revolver dressed in all blakc appears near you, a revolver pointed directly at your head. He never fires, and if you yell at him for a long period of time, he will leave the roomm.

  • New wings/rooms. The most dangerous of the hallucinations forces the character to believe a new office wing or room has appeared when they were not looking, which when entered, can cause injury or death.depending on what is really there.

  • Falling elevator. Whilst taking the elevator, some may experience an extreme speed and falling simulation. This will often cause the victim to fall to the floor screaming, only to realise it was not real upon the elevator stopping.

  • Dead People. Some characters may see fallen friends or family going about average business in the office.

  • We are always open to more suggestions for possible hallucinations.

Office Layout

The office is quite large. The inside is five floors tall, not including the basement. Bathrooms are located in each corner of each floor. Each floor is a winding road of hallways leading to small rooms containing one or two computers, to large open areas with six to ten employee work stations. In the basement is a large garage where the employee vehicles rest, and on the first floor, in the centre of the building, is a huge cafeteria stockpiled with food. On the top floor, another room the same size resides in the centre of the building, the employee lounge. In this room, a large flatscreen television saddles the wall, a leather sofa facing it. Board games are strewn about mercilessly, and a foosball table sits nearby. ANother small kitchen with the remaining brought-from-home meals inside is near the door. Each floor has three designated wings, A B and C. For example, floor one has 1a, 1b, 1C, two has 2A, 2B, 2C, and so on.
