a place where God's light would not shine, a hell of steel beneath the brine where misery's echoes boomed

In this world, there exists a research facility submerged below the sea. Calling itself "The Metal Glen," it gathered up subjects to perform medical experiments on.

Testing commenced, and it was not long before a miraculous treatment was discovered - one that could regenerate lost limbs and even bring the deceased back to life.

As with all medicines, however, it was not without its side effects.

(WARNING: Some prompts deal with body horror, violence, and death.)

Side Effects

1. UNCONTROLLABLE MOOD SWINGS AND INSATIABLE MURDEROUS URGES

You didn't mean to yell at this person. Maybe the most insignificant act on their part sends you into a flying rage, or they haven't even done anything to wrong you and you find yourself losing your temper at them anyway. Still, you're starting to think that maybe things would be better if this person wasn't around anymore. They're the cause of your frustrations, and it would be so easy to make them disappear. You could lure them to the upper lab and push them into the turbines. You could stab them with the kitchen knife while their back is turned.

2. MUTATIONS

You were injured, but the facility's treatment makes everything okay. Stab wounds quickly regenerate, lost eyes are replaced, and limbs regrow. Only... sometimes it seems like there are little mistakes made here and there. You definitely didn't need two extra arms to replace the one you lost, and you're fairly certain you didn't have eyes growing out of your back before.

3. MEMORY LOSS

The facility's treatment can revive the dead, but it seems like all the newly revived suffer from amnesia. Fear not! Given time and the right stimuli, you can recover your past, but hopefully you don't panic when you suddenly find yourself lying in a tiny coffin-like vessel with absolutely no memory as to how you got there.

In addition to that, if foul play was involved in your death, then hopefully you remember who the culprit was before anything else can go awry.

4. HALLUCINATIONS

You hear voices. You see things that can't possibly exist. Giant, gaping holes in the ground that threaten to suck you in. Rearranging rooms. Eyes in the walls.

5. YOUR CHOICE

Maybe all the experimentation you've been subjected to has affected you in an altogether unique way.

Prompts

1. UNWILLING PARTICIPANT

You're a prisoner here, and you just want to find a way out.

2. WILLING PARTICIPANT

You were sick. They promised to cure you. Alternatively, they offered you money.

3. RESEARCHER

Everything was going so well at first.

4. SECURITY GUARD

How hard a job could it possibly be?

5. YOUR CHOICE

Perhaps there's another role you play in all of this.

Prompts

Arrival: So you've just arrived in Nyoi-Cho. Congratulations! You must be so excited about having your wish granted. Or maybe you're upset that the result wasn't quite what you expected? If that's the case, then that's too bad! There are no take backs and no redoes, so you're stuck with what you have! Maybe you should have been more careful about how you worded that wish...

Oh well. There's no use in dwelling on it. You're a magi now, and that means adjusting to a whole new lifestyle! Maybe one of the townspeople can help you out.

Only... they're acting a bit strangely, aren't they? They're all too happy to show you around, but there's something unsettling about the way they're behaving. Almost cheerfully dissonant. Any questions about the history of the town are met with blank stares and brief silence, before they plaster a smile onto their faces and change the subject. Any attempts to tell them about your duties as a magi or anything else that relates to the magical will get similar reactions.

Isn't there anyone normal here that you can talk to at all?

Home Improvement: The houses that the magi are given access to really are something, aren't they? There's almost no limit to what they can do! Why don't you create the house of your dreams, or maybe recreate and relive your favorite childhood scenes? Invite some spectators over to marvel!

A Corrupted Soul Gem: You neglected to take care of your soul gem, and now you don't feel quite yourself anymore. You feel like you're losing your sense of self - all you seem to be able to focus on is your old regrets and past failures. What's happening to you?

A Day in the Life: Everyday hero by day, magician by night! You've got a busy day ahead of you and no time to waste! Maybe it's school, or maybe it's work, maybe it's both! Being magical doesn't make you exempt from paying those shopping bills!

May Day: Uh-oh. This magical girl stuff looked easier on TV. You're in some serious trouble! Or maybe you see someone else who is! It's time to pull up your socks and show them what you have. Be the hero you've always wanted to be, or give in and be that damsel in distress. There's no shame in needing a little help now and then.


A Successful Mission: Congratulations! You met up with your first Nightmare, and you fought valiantly. You even mastered that tricky power of yours! What sort of power did you get? Is it a useful one, or is it not so useful? Maybe you've mastered it beautifully, and now you're showing off to all of your friends. Maybe you're having a hard time keeping it under wraps, and now you're wreaking havoc across the town without meaning to!

A Dreadful Nightmare: You had an absolutely horrid day. As you drift off to sleep, your mind dwells on all the injustices you've had to endure. In response, your bed swallows you up, and your room shifts into a horrific Nightmarescape. What sort of Nightmare are you? What kind of Nightmarescape do you create? Hopefully your fellow magi can stop you before you cause too much damage!
