The sign reads
"Welcome all new travellers.
To continue you must go through a series of doors.
After going through you will pick a costume. You will then become a half- human and half that creature.
After a week(100 mins a hour,20 hrs a day,10 days a week) has passed you may morph and get another costume. To start of with you will only be able to become 40% human to 60% human.
If you put on a costume you will then become that creature, be teleported to it's home town and have to wait a week before being able to morph.
After 50 costumes you may change into one of your other costumes and become 30% to 70% human. When changing costumes you must wait at least an hour before you can change costumes again.
100 different species/gender costumes allows you to gender-morph and become 20% to 80% human
200 different species costumes allows you to combine costumes and become 10% to 90% human
400 different species costumes allows you to return to your world with no more morphing
And 800 different species costumes makes a polymorph and allows you to morph outside of this world.
Also if you have a costume like a centaur then the human part will always be human and is counted towards the human percentage.
Any gender/species transformation magic of yours can only change your gender(if you have at least 100 costumes) and the animal part to a different animal.
When you change into a different costume (that you already have) you may teleport to that species home town but you will have the week penalty where you have no costume changes.
If you die while wearing a costume you will be reborn at the local inn (or appropriate location ). If you have more then 100 costumes you will lose the costume you had when you died and go to an appropriate place for your next costume.
If you fail to make it out in 100 years(100 weeks in a year) one of your possible forms will be chosen and you will be permanently stuck in that form(apart from magic) until you die. Also there will be no possibility of going back to your world.
Also, one final note: should you take a female form and become pregnant, you won't be able to change your gender until the child is born, though the other aspects of your form may change (the child will change to match.) That is all, and good luck!
You realise that you have to do what the sign said to do and go through the doors and grab a costume.
Alternatively you could use the key system to determine the room

You go through the door.
All of a sudden it slams shut and with no handle on this side it appears that you are stuck.
There are two more doors however and both of them have a sign on them saying
Costume room for
So which door do you want

You put the tigress costume on and the changes start immediately.
The costume sinks in and combines with your skin.
You then feel your feet change into paws and your tows changes into paw-digits.
Changes then start to occur else where on your body as your ears start to tingle. They move to the top of your head with points, curving slightly to give you better hearing all round. You move over to a mirror in the corner to watch your other facial changes.
You feel your whiskers grow out. You watch as your eye colour changes from a boring brown to a dazzling bright yellow, with a tint of blue. Your nose starts to change as it becomes pinker and starts to move further away from your eyes. With it come new smells.
Your head has nearly finished the changing as your muzzle grew out with your nose, leaving you with pouting lips that anyone would love to be smothered in.
Vibrant auburn hair grows at the back of your head, down to your hips.
Your hips have also started to change, increasing in size. Your buttocks also increase in size, giving you a more firm round figure overall.
Next, your arms start to change. Your palms taking a new form with black pads slowly on them. Your nails on both your fingers and toes (Now paw digits) slowly dissolve as new powerful long curvy claws take their place.
Your lower and upper arms then start to change, with fur sweeping across with strong dashes of orange and black everywhere. They become slender and more feminine as they take on their new role as tigress limbs. Your shoulders, slowly shrink into your every changing body as your neck also become more feminine with no trace of an Adams apple every being there. You hear a low purring sound which you realise is coming from you.
The changes then move down to the body, as your legs became surprisingly longer, making you at least 6' 5" now. They also become more toned, leaving you with legs that any woman would die for (apart from the fur).
Your front also changes as the white fur spreads across the whole of your front. From underneath your fur, 4 new bumps could be seen growing as your inner self slowly alters to a more feminine structure.
Your original <span class="female">breasts</span> also took notice of this and start to inflate. They slowly increase in size until they reach at least a firm 40" C cup.
You then feel an awkward pain in the back of your buttocks. Thinking it was a sock or something that you had sat on you try and grab it. However, when your paws go to grab and remove whatever was causing the pain, you find that it is attached to your body.
It then surprises you more as it grows longer into a very sexy stripy tail. You found that you have full control of it and you sway it around as you look down to watch the remaining changes.

Instead, you blinked and opened your eyes to find a whole new environment surrounding you.
The air smelled thick. Saturated with a various plants and fruits. The jungle surroundings called out all around you. You found yourself walking easily on four paws. The paws of a tiger—of the suit you had donned.
Amazed, but dexterous. It was an easy feat to crouch under a tree branch growing out of the ground, or sniff out the large predatory snake a few feet away from you. You stood still as not to provoke it, it watched you, as equally interested, but then easily, in his eyes, seemed not to care anything about you—and slithered on his way.
You let out a breath. One thing densely packed forest like these were famous for, were snakes. And large ones. You went on your way whilst gathering your thoughts — completely unnoticing of a pair of eyes that had observed this encounter.
Okay, so as the letter stated: you were now a tiger. And there had to be more costumers.
So, you tarried through the thickets of the jungle, observing all of the blinding green flora and plantae that a tiger usually sees. The smell of the various plants and medicinal roots hits your nose constantly, no wonder the Amazon Rainforest is such a ground zero for medicine! Suddenly, up ahead, you smell the scent of another tiger. And see him too.
And he sees you too. He comes at you, walking with his tail swaying.
You both stare at each other. When he suddenly speaks, “Another one?”
You nod. “You?”
He nods. “How long have you been here?”
“Not long, little over three hours maybe.”
He nods. “Nice to meet you, your name?”
You give the newly arriving tiger your name.
“Nice name. I like it. But do you wanna keep it still? You are in a completely new world now, no parents, friends, anything of your old life — you could change it.”
You thought about this. Did you want to change your name? It didn’t seem so necessary, but you told the tiger that you’d think about it some more. He nodded again and smiled, “Well, my name’s Maxie. I’ve been here for a couple of years now. It’s my fifth costume, and it’s definitely the one I’m sticking with. What about you?”
You answered, “This is my first time. First costume.”
He nods, smiling still.
“Tiger’s my favorite animal, so I went with it.”
“Some people tend to. Others want to see how it feels to be some other kind of species. Guess it just depends on the person.” Maxie answered. You both started walking side by side on a path of heavy evergreen and dirt. Most animals you both passed on your way observed from the side. Gorillas and their families, the occasional parrot, leopards high in their tree branches.
“So, what do you do around here?” you asked.
Written by on 01 September 2019
“Well, I’m part of the guild near the center. You’d probably like it. Maybe you’d like to join up?”
You looked at your tiger friend. A guild? You’ve heard of such things but mainly from animation stuff and fans of such. Maybe from a game or two involving assassins. “What do you do?”
“Well, mostly we train and go out every once in a while altogether. Maybe you’d enjoy doing that. Think you’d like to follow me there?”
You nod. It doesn't sound so bad.
The guild is shrouded deep in the Amazonian forest and covered in thick vines and flora. It’s bright, noir-dim lights blaze from the windows and you get an old timely feel from the ancient-looking, triple-story guild. It’s like it’s straight out of a fantasy novel, like Lord of the Rings or something similar. You hackles raise with curiosity. Your newfound friend looks at you with a smug look. “Impressed?”
“Well, something like that,” you say honestly. It’s true, but there’s something irking you about this place that you can’t put your finger on.
“Well, you haven’t seen anything yet. Wait until you meet the guys. You’ll love them, and we have plenty of food, and I mean lots of food. And goodies too. See this scarf and jewel?”
He strode ahead of you, and he was right. There was a rather fine looking scarf around his neck, the silk looked so smooth it defied reality and human hands. And on top of said scarf was a necklace completely embezzled in diamonds and jewels of gold and ruby. He asked, “You like?”
“Yeah, it’s real nice.”
“We’ll fix you up right inside, if you want. You’ll look amazing if you do.”
He motioned for you to follow him up the stairs and into the guild. You did so. Once pushing open the door, your nose was immediately bombarded with the scents of many, alcohol, food of all kinds, and you saw — a many different costumers. From foxes to squirrels, hybrids, unicorns, but they were all mostly cats. They couldn’t have been more than a dozen. And they all looked at you and asked question upon question.
You were bombarded.
“By the way, you never gave me your name?” you suddenly realized.
Your companion looked at you and said. “Grimmr.”
Grimmr explained how you were new to their merry band — of thieves.
You did a double take. Had he just said what he thought you heard?
And then he said it again. Then added, “We totally need another predator here, and you were there right at that moment. I couldn’t resist. You’ll stay, won’t you? Oh I know you’ll stay. You wouldn’t not want to, after all.”
You had to get out of here. And quick.
You lowered your head. “A predator. Right.” Tigers were your favorite, but not for this reason. You swung your tail at a torch that’d been lazily close to a lantern. The lantern fell over, the oil spreading and fire spreading — soon a blockade of flames separated you from them. There were screams of upset. You ran out the door and back into the Amazonian forest. You suddenly wished, and wished that you could run faster—
When suddenly you were. Much faster. You didn’t stop. There was light up ahead and you burst through it. You knocked into a soft object. It was another person. His ears twitched. “You okay there?”
Written by on 03 September 2019
“You okay there?”
He was lifting himself from the ground, surprised but seemingly unharmed. “Oh… you’re…”
You had a feeling you knew what he was going to say. So, you answered for him. “Yes, I am. And you?”
“Yeah, let’s get you up.” He extended his hand towards you. You made a face. How were you going to take his hand — um, pawhand? Still, on reflex, you seemed to reach out and grab his hand with your… pawhand?!
You swayed on your hind legs but managed to keep your balance. The costumer you bumped into waited for you to regain your senses, because you seemed to have gone off in a daze in observing this new body the costume has taken.
His ears twitched and nose wriggled, whiskers moving with them. “So, are you okay?”
You nodded. “But I could be better. Look, we may need to go! There’s some thieves after me! They took me to their guild and I thought they were good guys but then they wanted to force me into their guild! So, I set some of it on fire.”
“You… set… their… den… on fire??”
You nodded. “Well, I don’t know if it’s completely burned down on anything. But I’m sure they’re angry with me.”
He took a step forward and dived his head past the trees. The only sounds around were the ocean waves off the shore, the caws of birds and scratching of crabs against shells. But not the sounds of trees moving, or curses, or angry screams, or threatening screams of death that you had just escaped from.
You sighed in relief and nearly decided to slump, with limp legs, into the sand. The striped fur on your legs blew with the wind coming from the ocean, through your tufts of fur around your head almost like a mane. As an anthro tiger, maybe this wouldn’t be so bad — you thought, once he came back and smiled.
“Seems like you lost them. They’re the band of thieves known as Skulls & Bottom Ocean Floor.”
You tilted your head.
“There’s a reason for that name. Trust me, the city knows. We all know.” He grimaced, anger and sorrow on his face. “But anyways, you managed to lose them. That’s good. Even if they came after you all the way here, we’re too close to the Guardsmen Tower for them to even think of capturing you. No way would they dare to come down here.” He then goes on to explain how they’ve been a deathly thorn in the city’s, and this world’s, side ever since they got together and started ruthlessly taking from everyone.
You felt sorry now. Real sorry, but glad you got away from that crazy gang.
“My name’s Rocko. What’s yours?”
You thought about it. It was just a suggestion, but you’ll change your name after all. You told him your former name then said, “My name is (new name).”
“Yeah, I hear some costumers do that. Cool name.”
“How long have you been here?” you asked.
“Too long. I’m actually stuck here.”
Written by on 04 September 2019
“You’re stuck here, why?” And that can happen?
“Well, I couldn’t find another costume so I’m stuck in this one.” Rocko turned around, tail moving with him. He was an anthropomorphic black panther. “Well, it’s my fifth costume so I didn’t see this complication coming.”
You felt sorry for him.
“Really didn’t see it coming. Usually... There’s always some costume around here or some kind of note, but nothing. And I’ve been here for some time.” He shrugged. “It’s a pretty decent place but those thieves make it ridiculously unbearable… hey, are you okay?”
You hadn’t realized it but you had been spacing out from all the information you had received. You moved your pawhand in a way that said, “Sort of.”
Rocko chuckled, “Come on, _______, let’s get you into the city for some rest. Don’t worry, there are no thieves or dangers here unless you happen to be one of them and are just tricking me to gain my trust?”
Rocko nodded. “Good.” His furry arm was placed over your shoulder. “Well, let’s going—oh! I almost forgot!” He bent down to grab a bag. “A friend of mine wanted some seashells so I was down here to fetch them for him. Now let’s go.”
The city was a metropolis. And near a beach, especially nice. Not like Las Vegas or New York City. It was just an incredibly big, populated, and well-built area. The Guardsmen Tower that Rocko talked about was something to behold, there were a ton of soldiers and they looked ready to go to war. You even happened to notice a few humans in those lines.
“Oh good, you got them!” Rocko handed the bag to a she-cow working at a drive-thru in a restaurant. She looked in the bag and made an ‘ooooooowooooooooow!’ sound. “You even got rainbow ones, and ones of different colors. Thanks so much, Rocko!”
“No problem,” he said.
“_______, pleasure to meet you,” you introduced yourself. Rocko explained your backstory to the she-cow.
“Oh geez, they almost had your head. Maybe literally.”
Skulls & Bottom Ocean Floor really were a big deal then.
Rocko led you into his home. There was a spare room. His other friend left him to try another costume, he explained. You took a rest in the room then got up the next morning, re-energized and ready to cape diem.
Rocko and you went back out to the beach. There, you happened to find an ocarina stuck in the sand. You blew sand particles out of it, and then started to test it to see if it still played. And it did. The music flowed easily enough, calm and relaxing, full and soundful. Rocko seemed to enjoy it as he swayed from side to side. You continued to play and play in full, and then played your favorite song, (favorite song).
You eventually stopped and Rocko clapped. “That was cool.”
“Thanks, oh hey, aren’t we supposed to be finding more crabs out here?”
“Right! Yeah!” Rocko added, “And an old ancient book from the library, someone left it somewhere here.”
You and Rocko ventured to the edge of the beach, having found little crabs but no book. Rocko led you both to the outer rim of the beach, a narrow area bounded by the forest. You and him were careful.
“Oh look at what we have here!”
But not careful enough.
Written by on 05 September 2019
A battle quickly ensured. The thieves had you and Rocko surrounded without mercy. They tried snapping at you with swords and guns. Rocko helped fight with you. His offensive moves proved expertise against the thieves no matter the creature that they were. The flexing of his hybrid panther legs and the control he had of his tail was quite a sight. In fact, you, being on offense and defense, tried to emulate his control. Hybrid tiger legs made for deadly kicks, you head-butted someone who got too close to you, and punched someone’s face. Surprisingly, you came up with a plan and were able to lead the thieves into the waters… and further out into the ocean… into rising tides… until the Guardsmen Tower could see, and then they arrived stealthily and overwhelmed the band of thieves.
Both Rocko and you walked away as the Guardsmen tied up the thieves, and the few that got away wouldn’t last long. Grimmr were among the ones caught, he was muzzled and glared at you. But both you and Rocko walked off of that beach, alive and well.
That night, you both slept overnight on the beach shore. You played the ocarina, a soft tune and Rocko had dozed off to sleep. With him asleep, you decided to go back to the thieves’ den. They were all captured and put in prison immediately. The city was safe and sound again without their reign of terror.
So you got up from the sand and walked into the forest. The thick thickets of vines and large trees brought you back to the first time you came here as a tiger. The ground was wet and dark brown from dirt and soil. You found your way down the path that Grimmr first brought you to and spotted the three-story guild. All of the lights still on.
Finally, you got to see the extent of the damage you caused. Most of the front was burned off and the inside was exposed. So the bar area was the first thing you saw upon walking up the stairs. You made sure that no one was around, but you heard nothing. You were led down a hallway that led to the upstairs, there, you found bedrooms and storage rooms.
The doors you opened revealed bountiful treasures. Gold, jewelry, dresses and fine clothing, plenty of good foods that were obviously expensive, guns, swords, games, shields, books. All of such didn’t belong to the thieves. Your claws scraped the walls as you opened another door, but this one held only one item — it was a costume.
You went towards it then grabbed it. This is what would send Rocko out of this world! He’s been here for too long, you could give it to him and help him out!
Your intent to coming to the thieves’ den was, of course, see if there was anything useful for you. But having found nothing other than this costume, you decided to leave. Your ears twitched as you walked out of the guild and you started back into the trees.
Whose costume did this belong to? Well, it was yours now.
And just as you were about to break out of the forest — something came to you, how would you leave this world? There were no notes for you. No extra costumes for you either. What would you do?
You looked at the costume then at your newfound friend Rocko and knew… that you’d have to make a decision.
Written by on 06 September 2019
Rocko looks at costume, surprised and reassured. He looks at you and says, “I can finally leave here.” His arms wrap around you. “Thank you, thank you so much!”
You smiled. “No problem.”
Would Rocko leave you behind?
“By the way, how long are you staying here?” he asks, observing the costume that was that of a tiger.
You thought about this. “You know, I’m not sure.” you tapped a claw to your chin. “It’s not a half bad place. But I wouldn’t mind somewhere more wet, or… magical even. Is there anything like that?”
“I’ve been to places like that.” He says, “You do look like you belong there.”
“Really, thanks. But… I guess I need to stay here awhile until I get a note or another costume.”
Rocko smiles. “I’ll wait with you.”
“Yeah. Wouldn’t want you to be alone and all.” You and Rocko shake hands in a bro-manner and then lay back in the sand, to fall asleep under the stars in reverie peace.
The next few days, there hasn’t been a costume or a note for you. But you wait anyways. It’s bound to show up soon. A few weeks pass and you and Rocko decide to leave the now wealthy city. You’d leave in search of a new costume, with Rocko right there — and with every opportune moment to become a minotaur, or whatever, and leave this world for a new one.
Before you, laid out a massive valley with a dirt road leading to the next town — another wealthy city but filled with Skyscrapers, an apparent resemblance to Tokyo.
“Ever think we’ll find you another costume?” asked Rocko.
“Don’t know,” you shrugged your striped shoulders, ears flicking. “Couldn’t I just go with you wherever you’ll go with this costume?”
Rocko answered, “Usually that’s not how this works… it could though.” He raised the costume. “Want to try it?”
You nodded. There wasn’t much else to try besides endless searching.
“Yeah, well, not for too long anyways.” He scratched his cheek and started to put on the tiger costume. “Geez, I wonder if I’ll even go anywhere. Weren’t you here first as a tiger?”
You tapped your chin. “Yeah, I was. Maybe you’ll end up staying here after all.” You said, disappointed.
Rocko frowned. “Hopefully not. But let’s give this a try.”
You stood back and waited as Rocko put on the entirety of the tiger costume and changed right before your eyes.
Written by on 09 September 2019
Rocko’s arms extended first and flexed lifelike, his claws flexing and fur blowing in the wind. His head moved and ears flicked and rotated, a growl coming from his chest as his body’s height increased from being much smaller than before. Once standing on flat feet now moved up into digitigrade form easily, and his claws moved into the earth as he wriggled his tiger toes. His tail lengthened and flicked behind him before staying completely still, balancing him. Rocko opened his eyes, filling the black voids that use to be there and said, “Nice, right?”
“Very. But still not taller than me.” Rocko laughed and moved around in his body. As if testing it. You watched him for several minutes. It was almost like he was a natural gymnast as he was flexing and moving about, cartwheeling and jumping up and down – he stood on both of his hands before staying on one for several minutes. Then, finally, he seemed satisfied and clapped both paws together. A hybrid tiger, just like you. You asked, “So what happens now?”
Rocko rubs under his chin and looks around. He suddenly smiles. “This.”
Suddenly, like that, you and Rocko were no longer in that world but in the dressing room you both originated from. Rocko sighed with relief. “Thank goodness. I thought I’d be stuck there forever.” He looks to you and says, “Thank you. Thank you so much.”
You say the usual response and there’s a brief silence between the two of you. Then Rocko says, “So, do you want to join up with me again or go your own way? Most people do the latter, can’t blame you if you want to do the same thing. There are some cool worlds to choose from, and lots of costumes. Are you going to try out a new one? Are you going to stay back on the world we previously left?”
“Geez, that’s a lot of questions there, Rocko?” you chuckled. “Besides, the door’s open for you to leave to wherever. For me, I think… I’ll stay and explore some.”
Rocko looks at you. He nods. “Alright, maybe we’ll see each other again some other time?”
“Maybe? Who knows?” you say.
You and Rocko grab each other’s hands and shake. Then he heads for the door and there’s a bright white light that consumes him. He looks over his shoulder at you and smiles then disappears into wherever that costume belongs.
You let out a breath and reopen the now closed door. You go through it and you're back where you started. Literally. In the middle of the Amazonia jungle. This time, there’s no thief to lead you away, or a need to run away. This time, you go west and head deeper into the jungle. Eventually there’s an end to the thick forestry. You move away the vines like curtains and come upon a cliff. As it turns out, you were on an island this entire time. The view leads out to a massive port mixed with a beach, lots of ships and more costumers most probably. You go towards it all. Who knows what you’ll discover?

The end (for now)
