Here's an updated version of Andrew's arrival post found http://asylums.insanejournal.com/warisc
You're in Lawrence, Kansas. The year is currently 2010. Earth. This is a completely different dimension. You probably are thinking I'm crazy, this is crazy, it's some kind of weird and wacky dream. No, sorry. It's really not. Which brings me to the next point.
2. How did I get here. A demon. Yes of the Biblical nature wanted the apocalypse to happen broke one of the 66 seals of the Bible. In this world the apocalypses are Biblical. Demons, Lucifer, just about all the creepy stuff of ghost stories is real and here in this place. Most of them wanting to screw with us.
3. Wait, demons?
Yes. As in from hell. In this world there are demons, Angels, and the supernatural. Though it's probably pretty different then the stuff you're used too. Just killing them is bad. Demons have to be trapped in a Devils Trap and exorcised with Latin. Don't know Latin? Not a problem. Quite a few of us here do, and there are classes. We're all stuck here so we help eachother out how we can. We don't want anybody left behind. These classes aren't mandatory, but they are highly recommended. Andrew is the head of the complex, he is also teaching a Latin class, and if you don't want classes, anybody here can likely teach you what they've already learned.
Also the reason demons can't just be killed is because they don't have their own bodies. They possess others. If that person they possess is still alive then they can be set free by the exorcism. If you try to kill them, you're killing an innocent person. So please use caution and the exorcism rather then swords of fury or whatever it is you have handy.
I bet right now you're thinking, but I have super powers, I don't have to worry about possession but you do. Imagine you are possessed, with said super power. Now the demon possessing you has total control over that power and your body So it's going to put people more at risk then the norm. But that's where protection comes in. We do provide amulets for you to wear that are charmed for anti possession. Don't get me wrong, they aren't infallible and can be torn off us or removed, but there are other means of protection that are more permanent.
You can get a tattoo of the symbol. But I warn you it has to be exact and precise otherwise it won't work. Period.
5. Wait, did you say super powers? Yes I did. You may be used to considering certain people or characters fictional where you come from, but here just like you they get pulled from their own worlds and exist in this one. Superman could end up being your next door neighbor, or that guy from X-files down the hall.
sorry Clark, but you're the best exa
For those who do arrive and end up being fictional in this world, sorry. It sucks trust me but people are pretty decent about accepting that kind of thing around here. The faster you accept it the better you'll adjust.
6. Wait, I still have my cellphone/laptop/other device for communication, can't I call home?
No, sorry. I wish as much as you did that dimension hopping came with a cell phone plan, but it doesn't yet.
7. How do I get home?
We've been working on that. Some get sent home randomly, others have been home and came back (myself included in that regard), and there are some who have been here for almost two years now.
8. What about portals! Sorry, it's been tried. No dice.
9. What do I do here, I don't know Latin/can't fight.
We offer classes as I've stated before ranging from combat to firearms and will teach you these different skills. We aren't just going to leave you high and dry. These classes are taught by highly skilled and qualified individuals. We don't just hand pick them out of a hat based on who wants to teach.
10. I don't even have a place to live, where do I go, what do I do?
We've set up a safe zone for arrivals. A complex. It's regularly stocked with food and supplies by myself and a few of the others with jobs who contribute regularly. We have all kinds of people ranging from supernatural to normal, all are welcome. We know it's hard for fictional characters to find jobs and pay for items of interest so we do try to provide as much as we can for you. If you want to work or have a specialty there are some people that can help you with that process by setting up an identification for you.
We do ask that you go about job hunting with caution. Please don't request to go immediately to the lime light of a similar company as it will draw unwanted attention both for you and this complex.
The complex is located here. [address] and a Map is located here [map]
