Dead Inside DeadSide (aka — Marmite’s Perpetual Demise)

In the desolate world of DeadSide, where crumbling cities and overgrown forests whispered secrets of a forgotten civilization, there existed a player named Marmite. His real name was lost to the digital winds, buried beneath layers of code and pixels. But in the realm of DeadSide, he was known as Marmite—the cursed wanderer.

Marmite wasn’t like other players. While they sought loot, alliances, and survival, he harbored a peculiar obsession: death. Not the death of others, mind you, but his own. He reveled in it, embraced it like a long-lost lover. Each respawn was a fresh canvas for his morbid artistry.

The game’s mechanics were ruthless. Bullets tore through flesh, hunger gnawed at insides, and the wilderness held dangers beyond comprehension. Yet Marmite danced on the precipice of oblivion, taunting fate with reckless abandon.

His first demise was mundane—a stray bullet from a rival player. But as he reappeared at the spawn point, he felt a thrill he’d never known. The adrenaline surged, and he sprinted back into the fray, laughing maniacally. Death became his muse, and he chased it like a moth to a flame.

Marmite’s deaths grew more elaborate. He leaped off cliffs, hoping the fall damage would be enough. It wasn’t. He ingested rotten food, hoping for a swift end. Instead, he vomited and stumbled onward. He even stood before the game’s deadliest creatures, arms outstretched, inviting their wrath.

Other players watched in bewilderment. They formed theories about Marmite: Was he a masochist? A performance artist? Or perhaps just a lunatic lost in the digital wasteland?But Marmite had a secret. He’d glimpsed something beyond the game—a glitch, a tear in the fabric of reality. It whispered promises of escape, of liberation from the cycle of life and death. And so, he pushed further, unraveling the game’s boundaries.

He discovered a hidden cave—a place untouched by the developers’ gaze. There, amidst flickering torches and ancient symbols, he found a cryptic message scrawled on the walls: “Death is but a door.”Marmite’s obsession intensified. He stopped looting, stopped fighting. Instead, he sought the cave, dying repeatedly to respawn closer to its entrance. His fellow players watched, baffled and amused. Some even joined him, forming a cult of death-worshippers.

As the sun dipped below the horizon, Marmite stood at the cave’s threshold. His health bar blinked red, and his inventory was empty. He stepped inside, and the world shifted. The cave became a labyrinth—a maze of memories and regrets.

Each corridor held a different death: the bullet wound, the fall, the poison. Marmite retraced them all, reliving the pain. But he pressed forward, driven by the cryptic message. Death was a door, and he would unlock it.

Finally, he reached the heart of the maze—a mirror. His reflection wavered, distorted. He stepped through, and reality fractured. DeadSide collapsed, and Marmite fell into the void.

When he woke, he was no longer a player. He stood in a realm of pure code, surrounded by ethereal beings—the game’s forgotten NPCs, the discarded lines of dialogue. They welcomed him, their voices a symphony of ones and zeros.

“You sought death,” they whispered. “Now you are free.”Marmite ceased to exist, yet he lingered—a glitch, a legend. In DeadSide’s abandoned servers, players still tell tales of the madman who chased death until it consumed him. And sometimes, when the moon is full, they glimpse a shadow—a specter dancing on the edge of oblivion.
