When the employees leave their cabins this morning, they may want to watch where they walk. They may very well end up crossing the path of a lion.
The gate to Ridgeway has opened, and for the time being at least, what lays beyond is a rather expansive, and noticeably deserted, zoo. Deserted that is, except for the animals, which have begun roaming through the gate and in to the resort.
Every creature great and small you might think of can be found on the guest list of this zoo. And every single cage and enclosure door has been left mysteriously open. There is no indication as to where all the people have gone, but littering the grounds is the odd shoe, hat, or souvenier stuffed polar bear.
The animals won't go near the guests. The same can't be said for the employees. If they check inside their cabins (or houses) they will find one tranquiliser gun per person, fully loaded and ready for those unfortunate encounters with tigers that so often will ruin your day. The tranquiliser will put an animal of that size out of commission for several hours, but will have no long term effects.
No form of mojo or magic will have any effect on the animals, or the gate.
Employees can walk in and out of the gate unimpeded. However, the gate rules apply as standard. Once a warning is given (it will be impossible to miss), employees will have 2 hours to re enter the resort, or they will be locked out (and therefore inside the zoo), until the gates to the zoo reopen. This could happen in a week, a month, a year...or never again.
