How It Begins
What a godawful storm this is. Lightning cracks in blue-white webby streaks every few seconds, followed by ear-splitting KA-THOOOMS of thunder. So much for the "Clear skies and sunshine through the weekend!" weather report of the noonday broadcast. You remind yourself to kick that soapy-headed pretty boy meteorologist in the ass when you get to the studio... yawp! The wind is shoving your car off the road. Man, this sucks balls.
Cripes, that one was close. Did a cow just explode?

(Note: How did a single version of a game get two IFIDs? The legacy-style IFID is generated by the unbundled story file; the randomized-style IFID was specified only in the .iFiction record bundled in the zblorb. So both IFIDs are valid.)
- Baf's Guide line wanted. (Please replace this line with a baf game template.).
