MYN and NYM, two spiders I wrote about using black text on black background


DARKEST ROOMS
a one-page adventure written with black on black 2019-10-08

(I cshould probably take a screenshot of this, I'll try to remember, but it will just show a Firefox tab that's completely black with some red wavy things because  probably didn't turn off spell checking on the element I made editable...? )

(Also, correcting things with backspace and/or delete is nigh impossible, because I can't see anything.)

(Anyway, on with the adventure)

THUNDER STRUCK, AND SPLIT THE BLACK STONE, in which two spider eggs were.

One was Nym, the other Myn.

The eggs rolled away in different directions, because the large rock that contained them stood on a high hill in a forest somewhere.

So the eggs disappeared into separate directions.


Fourhundred and fiftyseven years later, both eggs hatched. At the same time..


the web of nym
IS A TOWER HARD AS ROCK BUT BUILT ENITRELY OF SPIDER WEB. nym WEAVES WEB BLACK AS TAR.

tHE STRUCTURE RESEMBLES A TOWER, BUT THE BASE IS WIDER, AND IT GETS MORE NARROW TOWARDS THE TOP, LIKE A CCHEESE WEDGE.

iT IS HUNDRED METERS TALL, BUT THERE ARE NO FLOORS INSIDE, ONLY STRINGS OF WEBSHOOTING ACROSS HITHER AND DITHER.

r 1st iNSIDE THE TOWER (YOU CAN'T LOOK IN FROM THE OUTSIDE BECAUSE THE WEB IS TOO THICK), THERE ARE MILLIONS OF BONES TANGLED UP HERE AND THERE.

tHERE'S A 1 IN 6 CHANCE AAT ANY GIVEN TIME THAT THERE'S A LIVING BEING IN HERE, CRYING FOR HELP (IF HUMAN):
1-3. nON-HUMAN
4-6. hUMAN

tHERE'S A LARGE (SIZE OF A BIG HORSE) SWORD AT THE TOP OF THE CEILING, ONE OF LAST FEW PIECES FROM hRUGHR THE gIANT. iT IS ABOUT TO FALL DOWN, AND WILL CUT THROUGH ENOUGH STRINGS OF WEB TO MAKE THE STRUCTURE COLLAPSE (IT HANGS FROM THE HILT OR HANDLE OR WHATEVER YOU CALL IT).

tHERE'S A TREASURE CHEST ENTAGLED TEN METERS UP, AND ANOTHER ONE TWENTY METERS UP. tHEY CONTAIN A CRUCIAL QUEST PLOT DEVICE FOR WHATEVER QUEST THE PARTY IS TRYING TO FULFILL.

ND/OR A MONKEY HEAD IN GOLD


nym IS NEVER HERE. sHE HAS ABANDONED THIS TOWER, WHICH IS WHY MOST THINGS JUST GET STUCK AND DIE OF OLD AGE. oR BOREDOM.


halls of myn


wmyn IS REALLY TINY SPIDER, BUT HER PSIONIC POWERS LETS HER LEVITATE STUFF ABOVE HERE. . sHE'S VERY KEEN ON HAVING THORNS AND OTHER SHARP OBJECTS ORBIT ABOVE HER FOR PROTECTION. sHE CAN ALSO FLING THESE THINGS AT HIGH SPEED, KNOCKING OR EVEN KILLING WHOEVER IT HITS.


myn KNOWS HER TWIN SISTER nym IS OUT TO GET HER, AND NO PEBBLE TOSSED WILL SAVE HER THERE.

sO myn BUILT HERSELF A VAST LABYRINTH BELOW GROUND, TOO TINY FOR MOST CREATURES.

iT IS ACCISBLE THROUGH NARROW, VERTICAL TUNNELSE THAT GOES STRAIGHT DOWN FOR A HUNDRED METERS, LIKE SHARP NEEDLES INTO THE GROUND. (sorry for hathe caps-lock, I didn't realise it on, I just saw the ligh on my keyboard indicating I had it turned on).

Anyway, so NYM is out to eat MYN. One very large spider, and one very tiny.

(At this point in the text I'm wondering if I should let it rest til tomorrow, for illustration (Also blind folded), to see if I can remember things just about right, or if I should just post it, nah alright I'll just post this as is with some ugly illustration, no one cares)

QUESTIONS THAT NEED ANSWERS:
1. Why did NYM abandoned her enourmous tower?
2. How old are they?
3. Why were they in the stone?
4. Why must NYM kill/eat/b MYN?
5. What does MYN's labyrinth look like?
6. What about MYN's shrink-ray I didn't mention, which she uses to shrink and enslave humans to work in her labyrinth?
6. What number am I on?
7. How the hell did the giant sword end up at the top of the ceiling?
7. Can the screenshot of my black on black Firefox with red wavy lines be used as a dungeon map for this stupid adventure that isn't a adventure but merely some poorly written hook?

There's no such thing as wind

There's no such thing as wind, or breeze or so. It's all annoyed ghosts and spirits. Even when you breathe out air, that's a minor ghost.

A gust: slightly irritated.
A squall: annoyed.
A tornado: out for revenge.

Don't get me started on farts.
