Claimed by the wastes

(Restart Story)

You decide to take the boat across the lake, thereby saving you a trip through the ghoul infested forests that encircle it.

As you reach to put your hand on the side of the boat to give yourself some balance as you enter it, you find that your hand goes completely through as if the boat were not even there.

It's an illusion!

That is your final thought as you fall face first into the freezing waters of Mirror Lake. Whoever created the illusion must have cast a spell on you as soon as you hit the water, as you are unable to move any limbs. As you sink to the bottom of the lake, you see several ghastly figures moving towards you, looking to feed on your soon to be corpse.

As everything goes black, you wonder to yourself if things could have gone differently had you made smarter decisions...

The End
