Chapter - Temptation

Temptation is a scene.

Temptation begins when

Rainstorm has ended and

Control Center is visited and

location is not regionally in Office Interior and

location is not Roof and

location is not Control Center.

When Temptation begins: say "You stop in mid-stride as your eyes flick to the horizon. Way out in the desert, silhouetted on a rise, a [distant figure] stands. As you watch he raises a hand and waves."; move distant figure to Around the Tower.

The distant figure is a backdrop. Instead of doing anything to the distant figure, say "He's too far away. You can barely see him." Instead of waving hands during Temptation: say "The figure waves back, then seems to beckon you forward."

Every turn during Temptation: if a random chance of 1 in 4 succeeds and location is not regionally in Office Interior, say "The [distant figure] waves again, out in the deep desert."

Temptation ends when location is The Open Desert. When Temptation ends: now the distant figure is off-stage.
