While you are going about your usual business in the Compund, you suddenly hear a loud noise. It's like the hitch-pitched whine of a faulty mircophone, followed by some crackling and a few pops. Once you've recovered from the shock, a voice begins to speak. You can't tell where it's coming from, but it is loud enough to be heard throughout the town, and it is certain to wake anyone who may be sleeping.
It says: "At seven o'clock this evening there will be an event in the town square, and you are all invited. Go there, and you will find a case with your number on it. If you are lucky, the case will contain food, water, clothes, and an added treat: letters and gifts from your family, friends, and fans. If you are not so lucky, your case could be filled with a number of other things: rocks, twigs, foods laced with poison, or contaminated water. See you at the gathering."
So what will you do? Go to the town square and risk getting killed for the chance of hearing from your family? Steal someone else's case in the hopes of getting extra food? The choice is yours.
