>Start a fire
Three points in BRAINS is all you need to determine that starting a WARM FIRE in a cave made entirely of FROZEN WATER wouldn't be a good idea right now, even if you had FIREMAKING MATERIALS on you at the time.
Unable to think of more to do concerning the CREVASSE, you bid Frosty V farewell for now and exit back out onto UMBER MOUNTAIN.
The SUN is sinking on the horizon, it is now AFTERNOON, and thoughthe winds have settled, it feels colder than before...
>Look over edge
You take a glance down the side of the cliff,
The NORTH FACE stretches far below, to the SOUTHEAST you can see the lower edge of the AVALANCHE you were caught in earlier, and one of your scattered RED FLAGS among it.
There's also some OTHER FLAGS you don't recognize, in parts of the mountain you haven't been to, beyond that is a deep sea of green PINE TREES as far as you can see.
The view is breathtaking, but while you are distracted...
!!!YOU ARE ATTACKED by a LEVEL 4 MOUNTAIN CONDOR!!!
What will you (McKinley: Lvl 1) do?
[Author Note: i paraphrased some commands, the amount of things you could do in the Glacier was actually exhausted (for now) and i felt i should put her in a place with more to do, you're welcome!]
I'm actually interested in that green flag, but that can wait.
McKinley --> Is a Lvl 4 vs your own lvl 1 a serious threat, or an obstacle that you think you can manage? If you can manage, draw your rifle and shoot it. I wouldn't try to melee it with a flag pole --> A) It can probably crack it in its talons. B) It's hovering near the cliff edge, and you don't want to get in a tussle and fall over the rim of the ridge.
If you can shoot it, you can eat it, and that might do you some good!
I'm still wondering if he was climbing alone in the avalanche, or if he was part of a climbing squad. There are different coloured flags, which might be a group marker, but the amnesia means we have to guess.
Oh well. At least the cold and the coiled up position will let the blood clot, thereby stopping the threat of the lacerations. Still, the cold is only going to get worse.
Let's try a flashback! To before the avalanche!
Let's also not forget
"You think you will file "Careen to my death on a sled made of snow" under your list of last resorts should you succumb to mountain madness."
. . . You know, if you wake up and aren't really feeling the will to survive.
Also, the existence of things like levels, stats, violent wildlife, and permafrost icicles makes me think magic might be an option here. If only you had more than 3 points (or less) points in brains!
Aw man! I love doing something different! Enjoying the ride!
McKinley --> AGE (verb) BRUTALLY for ONE YEAR. Alternatively, level up! --> Also, shake your presents to cagily guess what they might contain! --> And, since you seem to be alone, sing yourself the saddest, loneliest ♫♪Happy Birthday to yourself♪♫ Just like last year?

>(Jokingly) threaten to eat all the cake by yourself.
You're the Birthday Girl, you'll eat as much cake as you damn well please!!
>Open a present while no one is looking.
You give the BIRTHDAY GIFT BOXES (x3) on the table a look, and carefully unwrap each box to reveal...
One (x1) ITEM, as far as ITEMS go, you'd have to say it's not the MOST ORIGINAL you've ever recieved, you aren't actually too sure what this ITEM even is.
Several (x?) VIDEO GAMES, a hobby you're not as fond of as, say, SUMMER CAMP, but you do enjoy gaming occasionally, with a preference for the ACTION/ADVENTURE GENRE.
and finally One (x1) ENTIRE FRUIT JUICER which... what? Who would even consider this a good gift for a child?? seriously.
You're thankful for all your WONDERFUL GIFTS, even if the stuff you got this year was BASICALLY GARBAGE, actually.
your MYFIRST INVENTORY ABSTRACTION FOR BABIES(tm) kicks in, sweeping up the mess of CAKE, ITEM, JUICER, GAMES and LONELY BALL, leaving your hands open to make gestures and solicited physical interactions. Peachy!
>Why not converse with your black-haired friend?
You approach the GIFT-BEARING-GIRL, who's name is BRI-ANTHONY, and she is your best friend!
her name is pretty stupid when you say it out loud, but so is yours. That MUTUAL STUPID-NAMED-NESS is part of why you're friends!
Bri: "Hey M.K.!"
(Bri calls you MK, which you like, other people call you "Mick", you like this significantly less...)
Bri: "Happy Birthday!" McKinley: "Bri! " McKinley: "Thank yooooou ^u^" Bri: "I was worried you wouldn't make it this year, with the surgery and... y'know." Bri: "A Summer camp without M.K.? I swear time would have stopped!" McKinley: "Yeeah, when i heard "no physical activity" i was :c" McKinley: But my dad seemed okay with me still coming here, provided i don't like, McKinley: "Cannonball into the lake, or swing from a tree or go wrestling some sort of sasquatch or something!" Bri: "Oh no!" McKinley: "As if i'd ever do /That/ kinda thing, hah -3-" Bri: "Hehe, yeah," Bri: "Stll, glad you could make it! I'd be pretty embarrassed to be carrying this box around, Bri: For a friend who never showed up to her own Birthday... " Bri: "I'd look pretty stupid!" McKinley: *GASP* McKinley: "Bri, you'd NEVER look stupid!" McKinley:"Not as long as I'm alive to be ten times stupider! ou-" Bri: "Omg come on," Bri: "you're not THAT dumb!" McKinley: "pssh, nah, it's my Birthday, I can be officially. McKinley: As Dumb(tm) as I want." Bri: "well okay, you're the boss i guess! O:"
