Fred is tired. Exhausted, more like. She's hungry and dirty, and for a moment, she has to make herself remember that she's not back on Pylea all over again. At least this time, there are other people with her and no one's being made to shovel demon horse poo, but the situation is still less than ideal. It makes her realize that this time, there's no one to miss her, no one who will wonder where she's gone to if she doesn't make it back. It's something that she tries to push out of her mind as the night goes on, knowing that there are more important things to focus on. Like the next thing that the game conjures up.

They've spent most of the night fighting the poisonous and deadly vines that turned up after Alistair's roll of the die, beating them back with branches and shooting at them while Alistair cut at the ones he could with his sword. Someone's almost hit by what Fred later realizes is a poisonous stinger, but they all manage to make it through mostly unscathed.

They find a spot to settle for the moment, and Fred sets the game down in front of her, opening it up to reveal the game board inside.

"Okay, so who's next?"

Fred's wanted to go to the other island ever since she'd first heard it existed. Of course, there'd been the problem of her not really leaving the compound the entire first month she'd been in that dimension, and then spending a lot of time after that trying to get the bookshelf to give her anything but coloring books, romance novels, or ridiculously out of date physics texts. But now that there's a space station and a portal to it on the other island, she actually has a good excuse to explore there.

So maybe part of Fred gathering people together to search the second island for any more portals or oddities is that she's curious about how this island works compared to the one that everyone lives on. Maybe she thinks that there could be some key there to figuring out how to get off the island, since that's something she hasn't given up on yet.

Either way, they've all spent the day exploring, and after a while, it's not just Fred who seems tired. They've started to set up camp in a clearing, Fred putting up a makeshift tent with sticks and blankets before they all set about building a fire.

Of course there was the option of spending the night on the space station, but frankly, the whole disembodied robot voice thing is a little too creepy for Fred's tastes anyway. That, and even though all the instruments up there say they're safe, she can't shake the feeling that at some point, some door is going to open and they're all going to be sucked out into space.

"Anybody up for gathering firewood?"
