Very often, adventures will open with the character having very little idea of who they are, where they are and/or what they are supposed to do. The protagonist may be trying to repress a dark and disturbing memory... or they could have just gotten hit in the head with a rock... It's probably the latter.

This technique makes it easier to justify the normal Adventure-Game style used in MSPaint Fan Adventures. The audience doesn't know anything about the world because neither does the main character. Sometimes these adventures lead to a quest to discover the past, other times it is done so the writer doesn't have to create a back story.

All too often, the amnesiac in question will be renamed.

Where are you? And more importantly, who are you? You can't seem to remember your name. What was it?

Why are you here? you can't remember...

As so often happens in this sort of game, you wake up in a strange room with no recollection of where you are, who you are, or what your purpose is.

You are in the open plains, you don't remember how you got here, but you remember two important things...

At least you still have your memori-...
