Proposal for YS-178

As per usual wiki standards, I'm putting this page up for anyone to take a look at for feedback. I'm gonna keep it open until the open of blaseball, in which case I'm gonna make a page for it. Entry is as follows: YS-178 Yellowstone National Park National Park Services Standardized Irregularity Report Documenting Researcher: Doctor Hedgeman

Irregularity Designation: YS-178 (“Two signs diverged in a Yellow wood”)

Irregularity Class: Native

Park Management Protocol: Rangers equipped with warded maps are stationed near every applicable sign, ready to give out correct info Closures of locations in which signage is important to public safety Wards placed at the base of signs slows rate of change, although no permanent solution has been found. Replacing the signs does little other than restart the process, although removed signs seem to revert after a period of ██ █████

Irregularity Description: The signs at Yellowstone National Park seem to be affected by the ████████ ████████████████, in which their visual appearance changes, seemingly at random. Changes range from a font switch to smaller letters, though records of completely new designs have also been taken. While harmless for the most part, on rare occasions the messages themselves have been reversed. For example, a sign stating “PLEASE STAY ON THE PATHS” was changed to “PLEASE EXPLORE, ESPECIALLY OFF THE PATHS!” This resulted in a small number of guests temporarily ████████████████████████████████, although this was later reversed thanks to a collaboration between the Park Rangers and ████████.

Additional Notes:

   [Recovered from Ranger ████████, , after their encounter with ████████

“I’ve been stationed at the “Stay on the Paths” sign, down by the ████████ ████████ ████████. It’s super boring, and half the time nobody’s even here to warn. The ████████ sign hasn’t even changed. I think. It doesn’t even matter! Who cares if some family wanders the wrong way!? We pay way more in order to ████████████████████████ anyways! Oh wait, here’s a guest. Time to yell at them about local biodiversity or something.”

   After the discovery of this document, Ranger ████████ was ████████ ████████ for a period of ██ █████. Afterwards, the only sentence they could say was “Stay on the paths. This is a threat. ████████████████████████”

I liked this the first time I read it, and I like it again on the second read. I personally think this is exactly the kind of vibe we're going for with these Irregularity Reports and this is a good example of a "mostly harmless" one.

I really like this one! It’s sweet but also a little spooky, I really liked the little anecdote from the ranger at the bottom, but I love this the most for all the stories it could generate and all the tiny little implications. My only thing is that I wish there was a little less white out, for things like consequences, but that may just be a taste thing.
