You decide to spend the night on the (color:green)[//beach//]. You and your associates unroll sleeping pads on the sand, and settle down for the night. Unfortunately, in a few hours, you are awoken to a soaked cot, and rising water all around you. You have settled to close to the (color:#1abc9c)[water's] edge, and the tide is coming in! Do you...

It gets closer and closer, seeming to become from all around you. The darkness maks it impossible to see the source of the noise, and before you know it, the creature is upon you! You died.

You curl up underneath it and attempt to drift off to sleep again, but cannot, thanks a peculiar growling noise. Suddenly, a huge beast pounces on you, killing you. You die.
[[restart from beggining->start]]You venture on ahead, shoving your way through the brush. Ahead of you, throuh the thick vines, you can see a strange glowing (color:yellow)[//light//]. You push on, hacking at the undergrowth as you go. Finally, you and your comrades reach the source of the (color:yellow)[//light//]. In the middle of a small clearing, lies a golden (Color:yellow) [//''key''//].

You choose to go to your right, towards the strange noises. They get louder and louder, seemingly coming from all around you. Then out of the trees, a giant, muscular black (color:white)+(text-style:"shudder")[''beast''] leaps out at you, mauling and killing you. You died.
[[restart from beggining->start]]You walk left, venturing further up the (color:green)[//beach//]. The day is hot and muggy, your feet sink into the sand, making it hard to walk. You reach the end of the beach, and can either...
[[west, towards up the tiny trail that spirals of the rock in front of you->West]]
[[north, towards the jungle->North]]
You have decided to go North. As you walk further into the jungle, you come to an incredibly thick, and impassible mass of vines. It spreads out beyond where you can see, but in front of you, embedded in the plants, is a locked wooden door. You need a key to open it.
(if: $key is 1)[Yay! you have the key! use the key to open the door. move through. [[Go through door]] ]
(if: $key is 0)[Uh oh! You don't have any keys. You are unable to move on. [[restart from beggining.->start]] ]You move west, up the path that winds up the looming rock next to you. The steep path comes to an end after a few minutes, stopping abrubtly against slippery, vertical stone. At the base, there is a locked wooden door. You need a key to open it.
(if: $key is 1)[Yay! you have a key! you can open the door.[[progress through the door.->Go through door]] ]
(if: $key is 0)[Uh oh! you don't have a key. You are unable to move on.[[restart from beggining.->start]] ]You walk through the door into a sort of darkish room. It's bare, with just enough light to see, except for a tiny table in the center of the room. On the table, ther is another(color:yellow) [''//key//''].
[[You take the key and walk through the small passage on the other side of the room]]
(set: $key to 2)After you have gone through the small passage, you reach a wall with three doors in it. Do you want to go through...
[[The tallest door, a wooden one that looks worn, and old.]]
[[A smaller door, with a white, glassy sheen]]
[[The smallest door, a red one that looks like metal.]]

Water drips from the ceiling. you her a growl, and stand rigid, clasping the key in your hand, shining it's light in front of you and looking for the source of the noise. Then you hear the noise again, and its right behind your head. You turn, holding your breath, and there is a huge beast staring at you with red eyes. It eats you. You died.
[[restart from beggining->start]]You walk through the white door, and you enter into a clearing surrounded by tall trees. In the very middle of the grassy clearing a huge, muscluar, dog-like (color:red)+(text-style:"shudder")[''creature''] breathing heavily, laying on its side, fast asleep. Next to it, is an apple. You pick up the apple. This must be the beast that has killed the explorers. do you want to...
[[Turn around and run back the way you came]]
[[inject the beast with a strong sedative]]You decide to go through the red door, and you enter into a stone cave with many corridors. Water drips from the ceiling. you her a growl, and stand rigid, clasping the key in your hand, shining it's light in front of you and looking for the source of the noise. Then you hear the noise again, and its right behind your head. You turn, holding your breath, and there is a huge beast staring at you with red eyes. It eats you. You died.
[[restart from beggining->start]]
You try to turn on your heels and run before the beast can awaken, but when you look behind you, the entrance that youc ame through is gone, replaced by a solid rock wall. In your frantic frenxy, you step on a stick, and it makes a loud cracking noise. The beast awakes, and is upon you in a second. You died.
[[restart from beggining->start]]You creep forward, holding a shot like device, filled with a strong sedative that you had been storing in the small pack on your back, and before the beast can awake, you inject the sedative. The creature does not move. You succesfully collect a blood and hair sample. You now turn around to head back to you plane with the samples.
[[Back at plane]]
back at your plane, you store the samples in one of the cabinets, and as you do, you hear a distant (color:#884B0F)+(text-style:"shudder")[''howl''] in the jungle. Suddenly, the beast comes tearing out of the brush, and stops, baring its teeth, in front of you. The sedative has worn off already. Do you...
[[Try feeding it the apple as a peace offering]]
[[Jump into the plane and shut the door]]
[[Throw a sharp stone at the monster]]The beast sniffs the apple carefully, taking it into its mouth and chewing it. When it's through, the monster lowers its head to you, and allows you to pet it. It becomes calm, obviously accepting you as a friend. For the next few days, you and the creature explore the island together, and you return home happy and succesful, with the reaserch as well.
[[Finish]]You jump into the plane and slam the door, but the beast easily tears the door off and eats you. you died.
[[Restart from beggining->start]]You throw a stone at the monster, and it hits it in the forehead, cutting it. The creature whimpers, and stumbles to the ground, bleeding freely. You jump in the plane and fly home, but have to live with the guilt. You are not a happy person, and die soon after.
