(STILL IN EDITING, I KNOW WHAT I'M PUTTING HERE)
-Ottomess' House - Tutorial
Narration text: As long as there has been history, people have been creating pictures. With these pictures, they have told stories - True, fictional, and occasionally somewhere in between.
With this fascination with visual representation and storytelling came an important advancement, animation.
it has become an important part in culture, and since its introduction, animation has greatly improved and changed....however some places this animation has created, have stayed black and white. Indeed - these worlds and their inhabitance could even be considered...
but that may change.
Ottomess wakes up in bed, and without seeing his true face, dresses to get ready for his new job.
Otto: ALRIGHTY! My first day as a deckhand begins today! I think I'll keep this job for more than a few days! Let's see. Bossman wanted me to be prepared before I come. I'll check my, checklist.
(This sets Otto up for a tutorial of the overworld controls. by interacting with parts of his house, otto gains his weapon, some gear, and some consumables items. after he's done with checking the main floor, Otto nptes he has one last thing to do, go evict a (in his words) "bum" called the Gackle living in his basement. If he is to approach the stairs to the attic at any point however: )
Otto: I've seen what is up there, never again. That's final.
(otto heads into the basement, littered with basic enemies, and decides to clear them out as a tutorial for combat, after doing so, The Gackle appears. He calls Otto a killjoy for ruining his party and driving out the guests. When Otto tells him that he's being evicted, the Gackle tries to force Otto out of his own home in a fight.
After being beat, the Gackle cries uncle and begs to stay, when Otto refuses, The Gackle offers to pay him rent from now on, which changes Otto's mind, earning him some inkwells and money.)
- Monochrome Main Street - Hub
(Otto leaves his house and walks to Monochrome itself - he lives on the outskirts of the city- Saying his hellos to his friends)
Rayel: Otto sweety!
Otto: Heya Ray! What are you doing so close to my home? it ain't often I see your pretty face out here!
Rayel: Just thought I should pay a visit, I do love the flowers in TeeHee Fields after all, if I could, I'd go live there.
Otto: Why don't you live with me? we are a couple after all!
Rayel: Uh....that's a big step...plus that monster they chased out of monochrome a few months ago is still out here somewhere...
Otto: It is? shoot... ... ... I, gotta get to work.
Rayel: Oh, I'm sorry! I was making you late! love you Otto!
(Rayel goes for a kiss but sticks Otto with her nose)
Otto: Ack! you're biting me again, losing Blood Ray-ray!
Rayel: sorry! I'm so sorry!
Otto: It's alright! I'll see you later sweety!
( and Smolder, inside the city-)
Otto: HELLLLLOOOOOO, Smolder!~
Smolder: This guy again? Hi...What's your name?
Otto: The Name's Ottomess! I gave you a box of Cigars the other day!
Smolder: I was wondering who left those at my door... Kid, you're better off finding someone else to be friends with, because people like you bug me a LOT.
Otto: Don't say that, I gave you something you like after all!
Smolder: (Dumb kid's indulging my bad habit...) kid-
Otto: I'd love to chat more, but I gotta run and say hi to my other friends before I go to the docks!
Smolder:...wait...doesn't he live alone outside city limits? Considering how annoying he is that actually may be for the best...
(At this point, Otto can only go to the docks, as the path to the Black and White Factory is under maintenance and the path to Teehee Fields pushes you back, somehow: )
Otto: Huh? The wind must be really strong coming from that way, Well, I gotta get to work anyway.
(Within the hub are a npcs that can be talked to and some buildings to explore, three of which have
And item shop, a gear shop, and an inn. Most of them are a dismissive of Otto, while some of them are friendly.)
-The Docks - 1.1
( The docks are a fairly straight forward area, simply heading straight ahead will lead Otto to Captain Swarthy, his boss, but there are a few parts of the pier that split off, some are locked/blocked and require a later character's abilities. most paths lead to npcs who give you items, but some end with an event that damages Otto slightly, or an ambush by an enemy.)
Captain Swarthy: You're late matey!!
