You have no idea where you are.
Meimona: What do you see?
A sea of pale gold, stretching as far as the eye can see.
It is reminiscent of the overworld, of...
After all, you can still make out the lining of the barrier.
Unfortunately, it seems that you remain a caged bird.
But in which part of the cage did you end up...?
Meimona: Can you tell where you are?
It is as if you crossed over from an unintended direction.
Maybe this is a place in the monster world, then?
The sunlight here is certainly brighter than anywhere you've been to in the human world. In fact, it's so bright that it nearly masks the lining of the dome.
Yes, for just a brief moment...
You glimpsed what it's like to be free once more.
Boy, what a cruel prankster of a phenomenon this is!
Meimona: What do you remember?
And then... that was followed by blinding light.
But wherever you are, Nino, Boyfriend, and the others are nowhere in sight.
It seems that you've ended up all alone.
You wonder where everyone else is. Are they looking for you right now?
Would it benefit them to do so...?
Not the first time you've been by yourself!
Right now, you gotta put all your thinking energy into survival.
A desert like this is probably super unbearable for humans and monsters, right? That means your friends must be looking for shelter out here!
Therefore, in order to survive... they'd probably look for an oasis.
By that logic, you'll surely run into them if you seek one yourself.
See? No need to panic at all!
Meimona: Check inventory.
With your precious riches and COOL disguise, you're unstoppable!
It's a bit worrying that you don't have any food. Not that you're hungry, but it's certainly one more reason to look for an oasis while you still have your energy.
To do that, you've just gotta traverse this place carefully.
Searching around a big desert... yeah, no biggie.
Meimona: Look for the others.
- Meimona: Nino? Ninoooo?
- Meimona: Boyfrieeend! Pspspspsps?
- Meimona: Uh... Aria? Hey?
- Meimona: Five...? Umm... Reed?
Meimona: SCREAM at the top of your lungs.
- Meimona: NINOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!?
- Meimona: THE BOOOOOOY WITH THE RED CAPE!
- Meimona: HEY, IDIOT! STUUUPID!
- Meimona: I THINK YOUR HAIR LOOKS DUMB! HEHEHE!
- Meimona: I'VE BEEN THINKING THAT ALL ALONG, Y'KNOW!
- Meimona: OOOO I'M INSULTING YOOOOOOOU, NINO!
- Meimona: Come DEFEND yourself!
If Nino was nearby, there's NO WAY his ego would've let him ignore you.
Maybe he's not within earshot... so then, you just need to shout even harder...!
Wait, no, no! Scratch that horrendous idea!
Meimona: Take a breather.
You admit you kind of got carried away back there.
It's not your fault that mocking Nino is really fun! It could be funnier if he was here to react to it, though... but on the bright side, at least he's not here to call you stupid for wasting your breath!
So, instead, you just imagine him doing it... wait, what? No!
That somehow feels even worse! Augh!!! >:[[
But it's morning right now, and it doesn't look like it will be nightfall soon.
Will you simply have to wait it out until then? But even so, since you don't really know what any star's position might indicate...
You wouldn't understand what the night sky communicates.
Man, what a hassle. Reed's little map thingy would be really useful right now.
Err... but... but you're fine on your own! You're fine!
Meimona: No you're not, stupid!!!
Ugh, fine, fine! You get it! You'll admit it, okay?!
You admit that right now, you, you...
You may actually be lost.
In fact, you may have just been getting yourself even more lost by wandering around all along. But it's fine! It's totally super duper fine, you know!? Because you actually know what to do when you're lost! After all...
Everyone in your family was great at finding their way back home!
You just have to think back to their valuable advice.
Welcome to the desert !
We got sun and grains
(of sand, best rhyme I could think of)
Mei: Head for the trees. Plants mean potential water or food.
Mei: Climb tree and look around. Maybe grab a coconut or whatever potential food may be in the tree. (wait why would coconuts be in the desert?)
Mei: Is it the right time to be Nino yet?
Meimona: Try and remember any details from reed's map - which way were you supposed to be travelling again?
Nino: Be weird
goombario would be pissed
Meimona: Equip disguise. Sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat will help protect you from the sun.
