How It Begins

You are a teenager who was getting ready for your first trip with the Junior Hikers. When you attempted to spin the globe that your eccentric great-aunt gave you for your tenth birthday, the globe didn't turn. Instead, either you shrank or the globe grew until you found yourself standing at the north pole of a small world.

You are wearing your backpack, hiking boots, and socks. A large key is stuck in the ground. The unturning world to the south is split into various time zones: midnight, evening, twilight, etc. You'll probably want to explore this world you now find yourself on.
