**You enter a large hall filled with strange egg-shaped structures around the room- there are about 75 kids your age milling about but you don’t recognize anyone. Everyone looks a little confused… but there’s also something about all of the other kids here. You feel connected to them- like there’s something in common between all of you that you need to figure out. Then you hear a voice piped into the room.**
Welcome Recruits. You are in the Processing Center. You’ll find some activities around the hall. This is an orientation for you.
This orientation will give you some exercises to test your ability. If you’re “talented”, you will also learn some things.
Do not take this lightly. There are secrets to be discovered, skills and knowledge that will help you discover your talent.
An opportunity is being presented to you. Do not take this for granted.
READ EVERYTHING. Look for clues. We’re watching you and determining your eligibility for the GAMR EXPERIMENT.
THIS IS A CLUE. DO NOT TELL ANYONE ABOUT IT. QUIETLY TELL A ROOM OBSERVER THAT YOU FOUND IT. YOU WILL BE REWARDED.
