I wanted to post the message each investigator got over email regarding their own personal experiences on the Underworld.

Flama (Jim)


The smoke starts to poison your lungs, you start coughing wanting to kill those men outside your room. You turn and see Deditus lying there, you have failed him, and Hedia, and Decimus, you want to scream but you pass out. You see details of what happens next: people carrying you away, then you are hanging upside down, suddenly Celia comes and slices your throat.



And then you wake up, you have a big fight today, all this was but a bad dream. You get it on the arena and hear the crowd yelling your name, "Flama Flama Flama!". You raise your sword and all of the sudden they all start laughing...at you. You feel humiliated, you want them to see the great warrior you are. You turn around and then see it, there are clowns in the arena with you, all of them wearing the mask of Pluto, mocking you. You try to strike them but fail, and the crowd burst in laughter, it hurts your ears, and makes you feel sick. This is total humiliation. The clowns start dancing around you...you try to hit them with no luck, the humiliation is to big for you that you decide to end your life. You get the sword in your belly, and have a painful and miserable death. And then you wake up, you have a big fight today, all this was but a bad dream. You get it on the arena and hear the crowd yelling your name...





You hear a voice; is Celia, calling you. There is a blue light surrounding you. You are lying besides Nero, and the two mercenaries. This is a humid place,you feel good but tired, and humiliated.

Cataurus (Edwin)



One moment you are hanging there upside down, Celia slicing your throat, and the cultists laughing at you wearing their bull masks. Then you remember that you should not be there, in fact you are not there. You are hunting a slave, you can feel the horse crossing the field, the air against your face, you see him in the distance, there is a rotten scent in the air. You double the pace. The slave turns to see you. He is wearing a mask, the mask of Pluto. You keep chasing him, and stab him in the back with your sword. You see him falling. You get down of the horse and get closer. This slave will pay for what he has done, how dared he? You kneel and stab him on the chest, one, two, four times...and you feel a horrible pain in your chest. Your toga is red with your blood as you are the one lying on the floor, the man who just got of his horse is stabbing you, taking your life away, he is wearing a mask, the mask of Pluto. With your last breath you reach out and remove his mask...you see your face. Then you remember that you should not be there, in fact you are not there. You are hunting a slave...



You hear a voice, it is Celia calling you. There is a blue light surrounding you. You are lying besides Flama, Nero and Iulius. This is a humid place,you feel good but tired, and scared. You see Celia on the floor.

Nero (Mike)



One moment you are hanging there upside down, Celia slicing your throat, and the cultists laughing at you wearing their bull masks. Then you remember that you should not be there, in fact you are not there. Your legion has been assigned to look over the construction of the wall. As you are standing with your comrades you feel so proud that those brits won't be able to cause more harm to the Empire. The vermin has been stopped. You go to your tent. Inside it, you rest in your made bed, but as soon as you lie down you see the straw turning into white, slimy critters. You want to stand up but they hold you down, you feel thousand of bites as they start eating your flesh. You try to move away but they are eating you so quickly that you can see your bare bones. You scream in pain but no one hears you.



Suddenly you hear a voice, is Celia calling you. There is a blue light surrounding you. The slimy creatures are gone. You are lying besides Flama, and the two mercenaries. This is a humid place,you feel good but tired, and scared. You see Celia on the floor.

Iulius (Gary)



You are at this great party and then you start feeling ill. You have been drugged. You try to warn the others but you can't, it all goes black around you.



You wake up. You are young and strong. A legionary. You are the man you wanted to be. You leave your tent to see the rest of your friends but as soon as you come out, you step into a quick sand. Around you all the other members of your equites unit are there, turned into corpses in the sand. You try to get out but you cannot, with every movement you bury deeper into the sand, until only your head is sticking out. Then you hear horses, they are coming to the rescue. When they arrive, you see every man you had slain in battle, waving their weapons at you. They all put on a mask, the mask of Pluto. They start going around in circles, the sand has solidified. They start hitting you, blow by blow you feel the pain, and you are dying...you can't breath, you try to scream but you can't, your mouth has been removed by a blow...with your last eye you see pieces of your brain rolling in front of you...and you are dead.
