“OK, campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties ‘cause it's cold out there. It's cold out there every day.”

It was a day just like any other.

It wasn't unusual for him to wake up and find himself coated in a layer of dust as thick as a carpet, disturbed by the thunderous roars of text alerts rather than his usual soothing alarm. Likewise, it was perfectly normal for him to lug his stiff body out of bed and flick the light switch, only to find that the bulb refused to shine for him. Even worse, he often found his clothes – fresh out of the wardrobe – reeking of mold and mustiness. Yanking open the blinds, he snorted humourlessly as he observed the heavy snowfall outside. Just yesterday, the weatherman had assured him countless times that it would be a radiant February 29th – yet today, he could have sworn he had just seen a frog tumble from the sky and land with a soft thump in the settling snow.

Well, at least the weather forecast being wrong is normal, he thought as he trudged downstairs. Though this is snow laughing matter, if you ask me.

Downstairs, the milk in the fridge had a congealed, curdled texture, as if it had been sitting there for years. Something wasn’t right: how was he supposed to get through the day without his cup of coffee? Slipping into his shoes, he plodded his way (wait … backwards?) through the heavy snow to his neighbour’s house and knocked on the door, trying desperately to ignore what seemed to be a herd of cows eyeing him from a distance. To his great shock, however, it wasn’t his neighbour who opened the door, but rather a man in a dressing gown and slippers … who looked awfully like him.

“Milk?” the identical man grunted at his request, rubbing his chin. “What year are you living in, 2022?”

Frozen, he happened to gawk over the man’s shoulder, his gaze drawn to the colourful calendar atop his mantelpiece. It was open to a page displaying 'February 2024'.

Today wasn’t a day like any other. Today, it seemed, was Leapfrog Day.

TASK
In groups of 2-4, you must roleplay discovering the mystery behind Leapfrog Day, a terrible event that transports you four years into the future at the end of every day (February 29th).

The only catch: the mysterious force responsible for Leapfrog Day has seen to it that
every group will have to face a randomly-chosen drawback in order to protect the truth from being discovered. Please post your planning threads below so that a random drawback can be given to your group.

It’s down to you to figure out a way to conquer this drawback and free yourselves from this curse before it’s too late!


Drawbacks:
1. One member of your group desperately needs to use the toilet.
2. Your characters’ parents keep texting you unsolicited advice.
3. Your characters feel the uncontrollable urge to make a pun every few lines.
4. You keep getting teleported into the middle of a supermarket.
5. Frogs are raining from the sky.
6. A herd of cows are following you at a distance throughout the day.
7. Evil clones of your characters keep getting in your way.
8. One character urgently wants a coffee (and not the cheap kind).
9. One member of your group refuses to accept that Leapfrog Day exists.
10. Your characters can only move backwards.

RULES
1. All HEX and RPC rules apply.
2. All roleplays must be created in the RPC and titled '[Closed to Username 1, Username 2, and Username 3] February Freestyle'. Please post the link to your roleplay in this thread.
3. Only one Freestyle entry is allowed per user and per pair. If you wish to form a new pair because your partner is unresponsive, please contact an RPC Moderator so that we can assess the situation.
4. To qualify for prizes, each user must make at least three posts of 250 - 500 words in length. At least one of each user's posts must be devoted to dealing with the drawback your group is assigned.
5. You may create planning threads in the RPC Lounge. However, you may not share drafts of your posts prior to posting.
6. Once your planning thread has been created, you must
post a link to it in this thread or sharepost snowleetah to the thread so that a random drawback can be given to your group.
7. Winners will be chosen via randomizer from among all participants who meet the requirements.
8. Please post any questions in this thread or send an owl to Sophie.
9. You have until
February 29th at 11:59 PM HEX Time to complete your roleplay and ensure that the link is posted in this thread.
