The package

You have (or your character has) just received an envelope or package with this symbol on it.

Write about what happens next.

You can use some (or all or none) of the following questions to help think about it.
  • Did you expect this to arrive?
  • Were you there when it was delivered?
  • How was it delivered? Who delivered it? Or what delivered it?
  • What does the envelope look like?
  • What shape is it?
  • Is it new or is it old?
  • What color is it?
  • What does it feel like?
  • Is it made of paper?
  • Is it thick or thin? Flat or lumpy?
  • Does it have a scent?
  • Are there other markings on it?
  • Fingerprints? Stains? Watermarks?
  • Is there writing? Can you read it?
  • How is it sealed?
  • What's inside?
  • Is there a letter or letters inside? (If so, answer similar questions to the ones about the envelope.)
  • Can you read the language?
  • What is the handwriting like? Spikey? Round? Fancy? Hurried? Inexpert?
  • What color is the ink?
  • Is it ink or might it be something else?
  • Does the letter have other symbols on it?
  • If there's a letter can you tell who it's from?
  • What information is in it?
  • What do they want you to do?
