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 go through the door.
All of a sudden it slams shut and with no handle on this side it appears that you are stuck.<P/>There are five costumes in this room, all of them female, all of them are normal land creatures.

You look around the room, you see a variety of shelves around the walls, each labeled and what appeared to be a variety of animal costumes, better than trying to leave naked you think to yourself, you walk over to the nearest shelf, upon closer inspection you see all the costumes are labeled with an animal and the gender. You groan to yourself as you come to the realisation that all the costumes are female. "I should have ducked in the other room..."
You look over the costumes, trying to find a suitable one. You finaly choose a canine costume, it seemed to be a female german shepherd costume. With a gulp you drop the towel around your waist and step into the costume, pulling on the legs and then the arms. As you pull the zip up the fur seems to flow across your body, you gulp and try to stop but the costume seems to have taken control of your arm and contiunes to pull it up all the way. Once the zipper is up to the top it comes off and you can move the arm of your own will again.
There is a pulling senstation from between your legs and you groan, knowing what was happening down there without even looking. As you do you feel a few pulling senstations, your chest flowing into the costume, filling out the extra bust space.
The senstation flows out down your legs as the costume skin merges with your own, when it reaches your ankles and feet you wince as you feel the bones shifting and reshaping to a more animalistic configuration, the momentary weakness because of this causes you to drop to your knees.
As you look up from the ground, you think that you must be loosing it, seeing that somehow the room is fading out and there is a new room forming around you, a bedroom with a full length mirror appearing on the wall before you.
In the mirror you see yourself and you look closer a shocked expression on your all the more canine looking face. "s-six breasts?!" you think out loud, though your voice sounds more barky than usual, and maybe even an octive or so higher.
Your arms didnt seem to have changed much, maybe grown a little longer and more feminine, though now ending in canine looking hand/paws with claws rather than hands.
Your body shape changes, filling out the feminine proportions of the costume, leaving your head and face the last change to take place. You gulp, feeling the change flow up your spine from yout newly formed tail. Your jaws and nose stretch out into a new and very canine shaped muzzle.
Your ears prick up as they elongate and move up your head around the same time as your muzzle forming. You hear the wind rustling the leaves outside the window, which is quite a supprise as you could've sworn the door used to be where the window is now located. Then you go blind for a few seconds as your eyes reshape and the transformation make them a part of your new body .
Once you are again able to see, you stagger over to the dresser against the wall, getting used to using your new paws and the new balance of your reshaped body. The ID on the dresser catches your eye, it has your name, and a picture of your new form, it looked the same as the you from the mirror. How could this've happened? You take a deep breath upon seeing that next to sex on the ID, you are labeled "bitch". "Great!" you think aloud, "they actually used bitch, not female."

The room is pretty basic. Opening the closest you find a selection of clothes but they are all designed to show off your enlarged chest. You grumble "Not only am I female, I have to advertise the fact?" You walk into the closet and look through the clothes, hoping to find something less revealing, but to no avail. The further back you look, the skimpier the clothes get. With a groan, you eventually pick out the least revealing outfit you can find, a yellow button down shirt with holes places specifically to show off your three cleavages. You find that there are no pants, or even skirts, and all of the shirts stop above the waist...it looked like these shirts were all you had.
There is a knock on the door. "Are you in there?" a male voice called. With a gasp, you hurry to put on the shirt before the door is opened. "The door is locked, I can't enter from this side," you hear from the outside. A sigh of relief escapes your lips, but you know you can't just stay in this room forever. Figuring that you might as well get it over with, you walk towards the door.
You open the door and on the other side is a male. "Is this your first costume?" he asks.
You nod. "I don't know why the wizard gives the bitches so few clothing options."
"He runs the whole costumeverse, or at the least he set it up. The costumes are triggers to change you and move you to another world."
"What for?" you ask, angry that anyone would dare do this to you.
"I think he wants to create a perfect world. So, by putting random people in at random times, many different worlds are created for him to compare. There are all sort of creatures in the other worlds, too, even some that only exist in the costumeverse now."
"Am I stuck here?"
"Only for about a fortnight, then you can get another costume and move onto the next world."
"And how long am I going to be stuck going from world to world?"
"well 400 costumes allow you to go home, 800 to be fully human-"
"800?!" you interrupt. "I don't want to have to go through this 800 times!" Your breasts jiggle uncomfortably as you stomp your foot in rage.
"You should of read the sign, it is in the main room"
"but.." you start till he interrupts you.
"Now we need to find you a job for the fortnight."
"I have to work?"
"Yes, there is no charity here. You should of been given a bunch of skills that we need, though."
"Skills? What sort of skills?"
"Well woodcutting, hauling, taking care of babies for example," he answers "We will see, if you follow me please." He turned and walked down a hallway, beckoning for you to walk behind him.
You follow and notice most of the females are dressed more conservatively. You point it out and he smiles "Yeah there is a big market in new clothing for bitches. It is one of their first purchases in most cases."
"I see," you say "So how long do I have to work for new clothes?"
"Oh, only about a days work on average for basic clothes."
You nod "I guess I should get a job quickly then."
He nods "So what do you want to do?"

"Are there puppies around? Wait, why did I say that?" You ask, shocked at yourself.
He grins "It seems like we have a skill that came with the costume. Yes we do have a hospital where mothers give birth. You could also be providing milk to them, or looking over them to make sure that they are safe."
You don't understand why, but this feels like something part of you REALLY wants to do...you're almost eager to be cuddling the pups, watching them play with each other, making sure that they are fed properly...it sounds perfect to you.
"So I guess that is a yes" he says, smiling at the expression on your face. "Follow me, please. The hospital is across town. We will need you to get you a ticket for the subway"?
"Subway?" you ask.
"Yeah, we have a large city and a large public transport network. Don't worry, you can pay me back later." He opened a door and you had to cover your eyes as the sunlight streamed through, bringing with it a variety of sounds and smells from outside.
"Wow," you say as the smells overtake your? nose "This nose is quite sensitive."
He chuckles "I guess your not used to it. After a week you should be used to it."
He smiles "Yep, And now we will go to the subway, Do you have your driver's license or some other ID?"
Thankful that you had remembered to pocket it, you took out the ID you had found on the dresser, showing it to him.
"Good, we can organize a transport card for you. Luckily, the local station is a big one with a very efficient office."
By now you have arrived at the station. He walks up to the ticket window "I have a newcomer who needs a card."
The person on the other side of the window nods. "If she will come through the door here, we can organize it for her."
You walk through the door and, after showing your ID, you get handed a card. On it is a 3D image of you. "This is one of the new cards. We have a 3D image system now," he explains.
You come out and show it to the person who had brought you here. "Nice, they have only recently brought that imaging system into effect!
"Now we need to go to the hospital. Put your card in the slot by the fare gate." You nod and soon you are on the train to the hospital.
You soon arrive at the hospital. "How am I going to get into the job?" you ask, nervous.
He smiles "Well, they are generally looking for people, so it should not be hard. Some of the jobs are harder to get into. Providing milk is the easiest to get into, though."
"Milk?" you ask. "But don't you have to be nursing to produce milk?"
"They can do it artificially. They have a real problem with getting enough bitches, though."
Though you feel offended at being called a bitch, you are a bit surprised to find that you are excited at the idea of feeding the puppies. Nervously, you ask "How hard is it to get into the other jobs?" Not quite sure you were ready for such a thing so soon after you were transgendered.
"Well, priority goes to those who provide milk, but there might be some vacancies."
"Vacancies in what?"
"Helping the new mothers with their puppies, making sure the older puppies play nice, those sorts of things."
You nod "I see." Looking ahead,? you notice that they have a sign saying 'RECRUITMENT' over a desk. You walk up to the desk, curious about what they're recruiting for.
A woman is sitting at the desk, reading a book. She looks up as you approach. "What's the open position?" you ask, hoping for something you could handle.
"Well there are many options for taking care of the puppies, if that is what you want."
You nod. "I'm wondering what the options are," you say eagerly, a smile on your face.
"Well, their is providing milk of course, looking after the new mothers, the older puppies...we have a lot of applications for the last two, though."
You think carefully about this...providing milk might not be so bad, but the other two jobs seem appealing, too.
Eventually, you reach a decision. "I'll..."

you follow at his heels as quickly as you can carry yourself, and for a moment, it didn’t seem to bother you that you were out in public in such skimpy clothes.
“I guess that’s what fur is for…” you thought to yourself. “So” You begin, aloud. “A Subway?” You ask.
“Yeah, there's a large public transportation up the hill, not down it though. You should never go down there.” his voice was like a droning procession. “For now, I can loan you the money for a while, with interest of course!” His slimy smile sent a shiver through your spine.
"Wow," you say as the smells overtake your nose "That hits hard.” You continue to yourself as you begin to take in the world around you as a canine for the first time. Your attention was caught by the bright sights and sounds rushing in around you, and for a moment you lost yourself, overwhelmed. The only thing breaking you from your trance was the gruff sound of his voice as he chuckled.
"I guess you’re not used to it. Should start to come natural after a day or so.” you nodded silently. “Someone seems eager to be a mother.” his creepy tone seemed to hypnotize you as he leaned in as you both walked up the hill. “Stop is just ahead. Do you have your driver's license or some other ID? Other than that tag, of course.” He continued.
“This is all I have” You said, showing him the ID you had found in the dresses.
“I see… well let’s see what we can do with this.” he said, taking the thin plastic card in his hands.
It didn’t take very long for you two to arrive at the station. You were impressed by the level of high tech surrounding you, and you wondered how such a shabby shack like the one you woke up on could have been located so close to such an energetic hub of activity. The guide turned to you.
"This is one of the new cards. We have a 3D image system now," he explained. “Check this out.” You noticed the holographic image of you in three dimensions as the card projected your likeness before your very eyes. “The hospital should be this way, there’s an intricate network leading directly there, for convenience.” He continued as he tapped his card, granting him access to pass the turnstiles. You did the same.
Soon, the two of you arrive at the hospital after a surprisingly short train ride.
"How am I going to get into the job?" you ask, nervous.
“Just be yourself, I have faith in you.” He said as you approached the hospital’s reception.
“Hello there, what can I help you with!” The woman said, cheerily.

“I’m looking for work, I heard you had some open positions.” you fumbled with your fingertips. The words seemed to stick in your throat, you remembered how poor your public speaking skills were. All your life your parents were usually the ones to do this kind of stuff, but today, it was all you.
“Okay, what type of positions were you looking for? Doctor, nursing? You have to be a bit more specific.”

“Uhh, technician?” when you heard your voice ring out down the gurney-cluttered hallways, the reality of what you said had sat in.
“Okay, please fill out this form.” She brought out a neat looking clipboard with a piece of paper checkered with questions and spaces for a response. Anxiety gripped your body and you smiled somewhat defensively. Her species took it as a cheerful gesture, and returned it, only feeding into your nervousness; yet you took the clipboard anyway.
“Did you know what you just said?” the guide asked as you sat down, clutching the wooden slat against your bosom.
“I’m fine.” You replied, trying hard to not meet his eyes. “Yeah I knew what I said.” You continued in a jumpy tone.
“...I thought you came here for the puppies?”
“I changed my mind!” You spat back at him, doubling down on your anxiety. “Anyway, I have the skills to do this job anyway. I’ve watched the discovery channel before.” you said in a condescending manner.
“Well… Whatever you say dear!” the guide said, shrugging, just before he took off. “Wish you luck!” He trotted off quickly as he left you in the empty waiting room. You looked to your clipboard, and back at his receding figure. Something about the dreary flickering lighting seemed to enhance your anxiety. Had you truly known what you had done?
You quickly find a seat and begin looking over the form. The words looked like a scribble of foreign languages dancing across a glaring white background. It hurt your eyes, but you tried your best anyway.
Before you was a checklist of words past your comprehension, you wondered if you had truly made the right decision. According to this checklist, it seemed as if every answer scribbled across the parchment was the wrong choice.

“This one.” you said, confused about your pick. It was some word you had never seen before, but it had begun with a prefix which you had recognized. “Neuro” you thought to yourself. “I can handle that.” With reassurance, you took a moment to check over your answer.
“Cool.” the guide said in a short response. “I must go now.” he said before parting.
“Peace out!” you replied to his back, getting up yourself to return the completed sheet. “I think we’re all set.” the high pitch of your voice just barely seemed to get the receptionist’s attention as she slowly turned back around to respond to you.
“Very well!” She said, taking the clipboard back from you. “Okay, if you’d go this way, that’d be fine.” she said, waving you off to a smaller side door next to the main hospital entrance.
“Okay. So do I follow the…”
“Yeah, if you follow the red line. “Neurosurgery” then you’ll begin your first job. We’re in urgent need of all types of staff, and you wouldn’t believe how rare someone in your profession can be.” You paused for a moment.
“Wait a minute…”
“What you can’t read?” She jested. “It’s what you filled out!” A laugh escaped her lips, thick neck thrown back in a jovial chuckle.
For a moment, you stumbled down the hallway, a bit unsure of where you had to go. Despite this, your hands still shook, every step was like agony, and the red line leading your way seemed almost indicative of your fate.
“Here I am…” You stood before a large set of double doors, a subtle beeping sound could be heard through the padded materials, and you could see through the plastic sheet-windows. Peering in, you could see others working, tightly wrapped up in protective equipment. “Should I…” You thought for a moment.
