F4CE Codex

5/31/24, 8:10 AM

F4CE is a hacker who delivers pizza for an offbeat pizza place with eccentric owners called The Pandora Twins. Things in his life start to intensify when he manages to steal some encrypted data from some government men during a delivery. At first he thinks he’ll just be exposing truths the government never wanted revealed and recruit other “online” people (4gents of kh40s) to help him. When he follows the data to a meeting site, he discovers the government has been hiding a whole ‘nother dimension. A mysterious pop-up ad that changes and can’t be removed reveals existential threats may be around every corner.

The Cradle of Thought and Omen is an organization dedicated to the successful documentation of Omens that have been overlooked or forgotten in the past. Omens, or paranormal events that have taken place on Earth, have caused quite a shift in recent years, unfortunately pointing to an increase in their presence. To make matters worse, a culmination of them has been discovered somewhere at this time. The organization’s goal is to gain and publish information so that they are closer to understanding and documenting what eludes them.

Hey There, It's Hickory

3/4/24, 12:08 AM

A few teens and young adults from an isolated little town have found their way to Tumblr. Now thrown headfirst into the deep end of the Internet, suddenly plagued with eerie nightmares about Wolves and ashes, and questioning everything they've ever known, it's just a matter of time before they dig up some dark secrets... What remains to be seen, though, is just how those secrets will change them.

Hailey's Encounters

11/10/23, 10:33 PM

Hailey moves into a new home, in a place called Sombre Oak. She feels like she should, even though she's not sure why. Moving somewhere isn't normally something strange, but for Hailey it's the very thing that starts an odd series of events. Because of this, she starts a blog, to talk about what's been happening to her (even though she's not totally sure herself.)
