This is a companion fluff story for the /tg/ homebrew game Server Crash.

I tell ya, there are some weird things on the net. We were being chased by this crazy mob of Cybers, they'd already taken of Larry's arm and he was lucky to get out alive, and we jump through this link without thinking. Next thing we know, were in this really weird maze. Not like the bike mazes, this was a proper building, with stairs and roofs and such, though it didn't make much sense, like those old paintings by that mad DJ.

Anyway, as I said, we were being chased, so we keep running. It seemed like days we were in that maze, just running and running, but eventually we found ourselves in the middle. Right in the very center, squatting on this plinth, sat this Coder. He smiled, and nodded to us, and then reached out a hand, and squeezed it. We heart a lot of yells, like Cybers in pain, and he simple nodded, and pointed. A pathway opened up, straight to another link.

I don't know who that guy is, or why he coded that maze, but he saved our lives that day. The weirdest thing though. I tried to get back there, to see him and ask, and the link was cut off. Something had sealed it, from the other side. What was he hiding?
