Partially inspired by Kikacat's "The Adventure", and partially by The Geoguessr Challenge.
Imagine, if you will, that you are sitting at your computer, happily playing a quick game of Mafia, when your phone goes off in your pocket. You ignore it, too absorbed in the game to be bothered with phone calls. Later, after you are brutally murdered, you check your phone to see who had called. It's an unknown number, so you dismiss it, and become involved with the game once more.
A few hours later, you're about to hit the sack when your phone rings again. This time, you pick it up.
"Hello? Please, you have to help me!" a female voice says, desperation clear in their voice.
"Who is this?" you ask.
"It's Kestrel Knight. Look, I know we've never really met, but you're the only person I can turn to! You have to help!"
Kestrel Knight? you think to yourself, the name sounding familiar.
"Aren't you someone I know from the BrainDen forums?" you ask.
"Yeah, I am, but I kind of urgently need help!" she tells you.
"What's wrong?" you ask.
"I've been kidnapped! I don't know where I am, but I'm calling from a payphone right now. It looks like an English-speaking country."
"Wait, how do you have access to a payphone?" you query, slightly confused.
"I escaped form the hotel room they've been keeping me in, but they're sure to find that I'm gone soon."
"Okay, describe your surroundings," you tell her, getting to the point.
"Well, I'm on a main street. There's a train station nearby, and there are a bunch of trams going around. There's quite a few people around. There's an ad for a website, and the extension is .com.au. Actually, this whole place is pretty familiar. I think I know where I am. Just, please, I need help, I'm being kept in a hotel somewhere near here, and I need you to find me. I don't know if my captors are going to move me, but will you help me?"
She's beginning to ramble now, and is obviously rather distressed.
"Absolutely. I think I might know where you are, too. I'll come get you as soon as possible," you say, trying to sound confident. In reality, you're not sure if you'll be able to help. You have no idea what she looks like, and you don't know her real name. You're not even sure where she is. But, hey, someone has to help her, right?
"Thank you! Well, I guess you'll need to know what I look like, huh? Okay, I've got--"
Kestrel is suddenly cut off in the middle of a sentence. You hear a muffled shout, then the line goes dead.
