CW002: "Path of Black Leaves"

NOTE: I'm sorry I took so long to post this. Things have been REALLY hectic here this past week. I've been up and working constantly. After I finish this post I'm going straight to sleep. I just hope I don't have any nightmares. --SΣ

Designation: CW002

Common Term: Path of Black Leaves

CW002 is the Pathway utilized by PRE01 "Slender Man" and its Servants. They have been observed as being able to open portals to CW002 at will. CW002 appears as a forest shrouded in perpetual night, and all the leaves on the trees are black. Creatures wander the forest, and are said to attack travelers who do not bear PRE01's Mark. The exact nature of these creatures is unknown, as few have ever observed them and survived. Those who do not bear PRE01's Mark often find themselves weakening when traveling CW002. PRE01's Servants suffer no such ill effects.

PRE11 "Bleeding Tree" is also located within CW002. NOTE: This is one of the reasons a number of Analysts argue that PRE11 should be reclassified as a UXP, since CW002 is connected to PRE01, and PRE11 has never been observed to leave it, rather preferring to draw victims into the path. --SΣ Addendum: Recently, PRE11 was reclassified as UXP832. The classification "PRE11" now refers to the "Manufactured Newborn." --SΣ


  1. I am curious. Are there any known connections between CW002 and PRE06?

    I ask because this seems eerily similar to something I encountered before.

  2. There is not. PRE06 is a living entity, whereas CW002 is not. However, both HAVE been known, on rare occasions, to alter the geometry of the world outside of a portal or Door. And I suppose there's no reason that a Door couldn't manifest in CW002 either, though we have no record of such an event (to be fair though, our data on all the CW000 series, barring CW004 "Catacombs", is drastically under-researched, as we have no way of thoroughly investigating the Pathways)

  3. That's somewhat worrisome on my end. But I thank you for answering my question.

  4. Catacombs? I'd like to hear about that.

  5. Alright, the catacombs are home to the blind man. I think.

  6. I've heard of the path of black leaves being used by at least one person *not* in His service. A Runner called Konaa. Do you know how he was able to manage this?

    1. I took five hour energy and in five hours I learn to play trombone, ate dinner, did some running, and traveled the Path of Black Leaves without dying.
