Bagpus stared ahead at the bulky iron door blocking his way. It was old and pitted with rust. A plaque, covered in thick dust, hanging at an angle by a single remaining rivet, being the only other feature on the door. Bagpus brushed away at the thick dust, revealing underlying lettering with the paint flaking and peeling with age. He read aloud "Runewars Forum". "This is it!" he thought, *I have finally arrived".
With a growing sense of anticipation of the all the ongoing vibrant and lively conversations the community would be having inside, he pushes at the door. It slowly creaks open, the rusted hinges shrieking through decades of unuse.
He peers around the door at the dark, silent gloom within. All is dark and quiet, like an old mausoleum. He steps in, his footsteps echoing around the dark inner chamber, only muffled by the cobwebs and general dungeon detritus on the floor. What was wrong? Where was the community he thought would be waiting for him in this place? Steading himself, his heart beating wildly in his chest, he lets out a shout "Hellloooooooo.... is anybody there?????".... His voice booms and echoes around the empty chamber, until the echoes die away and once again he is left in silence and blackness with just the sound of his own rasping breath for company.....
