Camp Maika‘i is a Summer Camp in Maika‘i, Hawai’i designed for high school-aged students with disabilities. Some of the campers, though, are also Midnighters.
Between 12:00 am and 1:00 am, time freezes for an hour creating an extra pocket of time called the Thirteenth Hour. Most people are frozen during this time, but some, the Midnighters, have the world all to themselves. However, they aren’t the only ones who exist in the Thirteenth Hour. There are creatures, Thirteenth Hour Beings (THB), that exist only in the thirteenth hour. They are frightening creatures that most try to avoid. They are not infallible, though.
Those with a disability, mental health disorder, or some other stigma, who are also Midnighters, have abilities during this extra hour. Their abilities in the thirteenth hour usually relate to their disabilities in regular time. Blind people can see the THB, and perhaps they see further away than the average person. Deaf people can hear the THB marching through the streets, and an amputee might have a truly phantom limb at their disposal.
It’s 2014, and you play a Midnighter at Camp Maika‘i. If this is their first time at the camp, they’ve noticed that there are more THB around at the camp then there are wherever they are from; if this is not their first time at camp, they are likely to notice that there are more at the camp then there has been in previous years. Nothing has happened relating to the THB in the history of the camp, but this year, the THB want something.
More about the THB:
Some THB can change their physical form, some are serpent-like accompanying the rest, but most are soldiers. They are often trying to lure Midnighters by mimicking the voice of other Midnighters. There are different types of THB that your character could have encountered.
The THB are susceptible to the powers of the Midnighters. A punch from a phantom arm or strengthened limb would do more damage than a blow from a Midnighter with a different kind of ability. Through the powers of the Midnighters, they can be defeated.
