As you wander through a dark corridor you start to hear murmurs of human voices. You hear an eerie flap of wings and then a familiar voice calling out for you to follow it. You must keep hold of your senses or the Jabberjays’ calls will lead you away from the path and into the hands of danger.

After reaching Level 3 in the west tower Arnie began to walk through a dark and meandering path, just as he began to make his way he started to hear his father calling out to him. 'Arnie! Boy! Don't forget your tools, you left them over here!' It couldn't be, they wouldn't bring his father here. No, it was a jabberjay. "Ignore it Arnie." he mumbled to himself as he tried to maintain his focus.

Moments later, Arnie emerged from the dark and saw that he had maintained the right path through the obstacle. It would have been nice to get that jabberjay, but for now Arnie was just glad to have made it through.
"This way!" Arnie called, hoping everyone else would find their way.
Ox Made it to level three, he began to hear voices from the jabber jays and he through his hands up over his ears. He couldn't tell that they were just coming from the birds he was freaking out, his only choice was to catch it.
Ox waited as the jabber jay fluttered above his head screaming in the voice of his mother. He didn't think he would remember her voice so clearly after all this time. He waited until it flew just a little too close and then leaped into the air and snagged the bird with one hand. Ox roared triumphant.

Derrick looked coolly up at the jabberjays. He's had practice in blocking out the taunts they were mimicking. That didn't mean he was immune to them. He decided to take the challenge of trying to catch one.

As Ayla was walking through the corridor, she heard a voice cry out to her. "Ayla! Help me!" She instantly recognized it as her little brother's voice. But it couldn't be.... It had to be one of those fucking birds. Ayla spotted it and decided to try to catch it. She knew the odds were vary slim, she had little knowledge of the species, but it was this or listen to her brother in agony.

Derrick breathed a sigh of relief as a jabberjay got caught in the trap he made. He wasn't quite certain it would work since he had to make it using mostly branches. He grinned. Maybe his luck wasn't so bad.

Arnie saw Ayla starting to lose grip on reality and ran over to grab her shoulders and pull her out. Ox was furiously batting away a throng of birds so thick that Arnie could barely make out the large mans frame.
"We've got you Ayla! Ox and I are here, focus on us." With the path he had just traveled clear in his head Arnie lead Ayla and Ox back towards safety.

Ayla saw an ox running toward her. Or no... it wasn't really an ox... it was Ox. Her fellow tribute and friend. And then another shape was approaching. Who was that? Arnie? She was losing her grip on reality. They were guiding her to safety.
It was Ox and Arnie. As they helped her away from the jays, she started to come to. "It was just the birds" she said under her breath. "Just birds." She was getting a grip on reality, but she was mentally exhausted.

Rosa saw a small shape flit by her head and several of her fellow tributes running around trying to get a hand on whatever they were. She wasn't entirely sure what they were trying to catch but if they wanted it she might as well help.
As a small shape shot by her head she reached out a hand quickly to grab a hold of whatever it was...

She looked into her hand to see what was squirming inside. It seemed to be a jabberjay. She smiled to herself, "This could be useful..."
"Hey guys," she sad about to show off her trophy when she saw Ayla panting on the ground being tended to by some fellow tributes. Now she felt bad. She had rushed in thinking of herself and not at all what could be happening to her fellow tributes. She slunk over to where they were resting. "Are you ok?" she ventured, "Is there...anything I can do?"

Alicia suddenly stopped in her tracks. She listened more closely. That’s wasn’t Rowan’s cry. When Rowan was upset she wouldn’t quietly whimper like that. She would let the world know it and scream until her mommy came. Rowan wasn’t here. She knew exactly what the Game Makers were playing at. This was cruel. They were using her own child’s voice against her.
No longer frightened, Alicia ran through the rest of the maze.
“Jabberjays! Those bastards are using Jabberjays to trick us!”

Cal Mensen: I believe you edit the post. You can either rewhisper to everyone (too much work), or copy and paste the whispers into public text. I'd imagine you'd want to give some sort of symbol or notation that they were once whispers.

Cal Mensen: Same here, part of me wants to allocate some time aside to building a new one in a different setting. It'd be easier to devote time to if there's a shard interest.
