The group will be locked inside the art gallery, and they will try to escape. Each of them have roses that represent their lives. Each person has their own rose, and each rose has 5 petals. If they get injured, they will lose a petal (or more), and if they lose all of them, they die. It is possible to lose more than one petal at once, and they get more injured as the more petals fall. The only way to make their roses regain petals is by putting them in water vases, if they can find them.

If the group find that words or phrases have ??? on them, it is due to them not being able to read those words (Dani), or the words being smudged.


2 PM

  • In one afternoon, under the gray sky, a trip advisor scheduled a visit to the late Gueterna's art gallery exhibition.
  • The art group were left off in the gallery and explored.
  • After much exploring on part of the group, Drexel enters the 5th room of the 2nd floor, and he finds that nobody is around that room. A large, gigantic painting of what looks be a darker gallery just like the one the group is in currently is on the wall of the room, and a small plaque was underneath it.
  • After the group read the plaque, the music on the gallery stopped. After looking around, they all realized only they were inside the gallery.
  • The group try to open the lobby door, but find it locked. They also begin to hear footsteps around the gallery, somewhere.
  • Tommy hides behind the desk, and grabs some pamphlets. He reads about Gueterna's life, and finds a small writing undernearth a pamphlet saying "Aligned", written with a red crayon.
  • After some time, Joan and Drexe go up to the second floor, and on the staircase are faced by a headless mannequin holding a katana, dragging it on the floor as it goes. It starts walking towards them, as they run back to the lobby.
  • The group eventually run to the second room of the first floor, and find it to be a room filled with mirrors. The rest of the group runs off to the 7th room, while Joan stays behind.
  • As the headless mannequin reaches the mirror room, it looks over at the mirror, and stays still looking at it, dropping the katana.
  • Joan picks up the katana, and finds out it is made out of paper.
  • Upon reading the plaque under a mirror, Joan and the rest try to figure out how to get out, checking many rooms to no avail.
  • The group spends a long time trying to figure out what to do.
  • After remembering about the pamphlets, Tommy heads to the room with the planets and finds that there is a sun planet model now, emiting a ray of light in a direction.
  • Tommy adjusts the planets to be on the same place the ray is, and he notices the Earth model opens. Inside, he finds a paper that tells him that babies come first.
  • The group head to the room with paintings of a man, a boy and a baby whom all have plaques underneath them. They switch them up, and both hear a sound from the first room and a paper hammer falls behind them.
  • In the first room, they find out that the painting of the tarantula has disappeared, and only a painting of an ocean is on the floor.
  • They all jump in, and find themselves in a corridor leading left and right. They go left.

  • The group go inside the Liars' Room, which has many paintings of different people in different colors. Each of them tells them something.
  • Based on the statements made by the paintings, Tommy takes a path the green painting suggested. This causes him to land on a tile, and as he takes off the tile, it releases a gust of poison on him, making him fall to the side, and he notices his rose has one petal left.
  • Based on the statements made by the paintings, John take a path the yellow painting suggested. He lands on a tile, and takes it off, finding a vase with some water left on it and a pretty small blue key.
  • John gives the water vase to Tommy, and he puts his rose inside, healing it up by 3 petals, as Tommy now has 4 petals.
  • The group arrive in a big, wide room that is decorated like a beach, with an ocean and sand painted on the floors and walls. It is called "The Beach". They notice 4 doors, a large well and a large painting on the other side of the room, above where the ocean is painted.
  • Dane examines the large painting, and finds it to be of a man missing two eyes. Two large oval spaces are on the place the eyes were supposed to be in.

  • Tommy goes inside a door, and finds himself in a corridor with a mirror on the end of it, and a malevolent force behind him.
  • Tommy goes to the mirror and sees behind him the face of something evil with sharp teeth.

  • Danny, Dane and John enter the door, and find themselves locked inside it, as the door has no doorknob. They find a sign saying: "Do you like mazes?"
  • Dane, Danny and John all venture through the maze, meeting up with headless mannequins and splitting up, despite they do not get injured.
  • After they meet up, they find the end of the maze, a room with many bookcases. There, they see Ib trying to wake up a sleeping Garry. Garry only has a petal on his rose.
  • After putting a book that was out of place into a bookcase, they open up a passageway on the wall, revealing a water vase and a box with a white glass ball on it, along with an apple made out of wood. They dip Garry's rose in, and Garry wakes up, healed.
