Early on Sunday, January 3rd
, an unknown and unnoticed being gained access to Winterdale’s cell service provider. Originally planning on causing trouble due to annoyance over finding themselves in Winterdale against their will, those intentions had significantly decreased with the more recent arrival of another individual. They were now carrying out their plan largely due to boredom and not wanting to waste all the time and effort put into it in the first place. It was a very clever plan, if they said so themselves.
What started as texts being scrambled and calls dropping or going to strangers
slowly devolved into the entire cell network being down
. Phones can still connect to wi-fi, and any applications that can run off of the internet still work — so, basically anything except phone calls or texts. Landlines still function
so people aren’t completely out of luck, and communication is far from impossible, but the loss is likely to be annoying, and slower than some may be used to.
Cell service is completely down by 3:00 AM.
Since there is demonic magic involved, it takes until 4:00 PM the next afternoon
for everything to be straightened out, though the occasional text and call do go astray over the next 2-3 days
. The identity of the culprit is never discovered, though it might lessen the annoyance of some to learn that they were just as inconvenienced and annoyed as everyone else over what happened.
One plant was “sacrificed” in that annoyance. It is currently enjoying its new life in one of the parks in Limesville, where there is a small area full of plants that have managed to stay lush and green throughout the winter.
