Hall Of Sculptures

Location

This is in the Metroplex U area. It opened on October 31st, 2013, and had some extra halloween-related encounters for the first day. See Hall of Sculptures (Halloween 2013) and Hall Of Sculptures (Halloween 2014) for details.

It can be entered from the Grand Staircase in the Hall of Paintings.

This area counts as hard-to-enter, indoors, aboveground.

When resting here:

You find a dark corner of the museum and sit down to rest. Nobody bothers you… perhaps this is a normal place for student naps.

You regain 25+2.5*First Aid hit points!

Or, while etheric:

You find a dark corner of the museum and sit down to rest, letting yourself be lulled by the soothing buzzing of a thousand wings.

You regain 12+??*First Aid hit points!

TREE OF HANDS
The hall leads you past a tree, straight and true. It's strange to see a real tree, let alone in a building, but it doesn't trouble you until its leaves start dropping, revealing sickly fruit like human hands.

A moment later, it drops the facade, your eyes blurring between a tree and a nest of endlessly writhing hands reaching towards you, grasping for something.

SPEARWOMAN
As you make your way through the hall, you find your way blocked by some sort of mad woman. She shouts something, either in a language you don't understand or no language at all, and leaps to impale you with her spear.

MEMORIAL STATUE+DRONE STATUE
Near the stairs, you pass by a statue of a soldier and his drone companion… a memorial to wars fought decades ago. The plaque near the rope line tells of the horrible fates suffered by those who fought in those wars and the inconceivable number who died.

As you read, you feel a chill up your spine. When you look back up to the statue, you see the man has leveled his rifle at you and the drone is leaping towards you like a wild animal.

MIDGARD SECURITY
A security guard stalks up to you, screaming something about how "you bastards" killed buddies in the dorms. Whatever he's going on about, he isn't going to let it go without a fight. Only when dressed as a punk

MIDGARD SECURITY+HOUND
