Jake Spenser Journal Entry #1 "We got one! I can't believe that ad in "Broomsticks Weekly" has finally paid off. And the client is no other than the crazy American star that moved to Killbragant last summer. Considering my mother always said that my correspondence course on catching ghosts was stupid and I would never amount to anything, I'm doing pretty good with my first client. She said something about an evil relative trying to bring hell on earth but I'm fairly sure it will be just a case of a playful poltergeist. Now, where is my exorcism book?"
|Visit England, they said. You will see beautiful castles, they said. They forgot to mention the undead|
And that's where we come in. We are an anonymous ghostbuster that Elvira contacted before being imprisoned and our mission is to save the world. You see, this is not your average random undead horde. They have a purpose. It seems a long time ago, Elvira's grand grand grand grand grandmother was an evil witch. There is something in the manual about an evil wizard too and some extra marital and marital affairs but there is enough exposition as it is, so we will skip it. The thing is that Emelda, the witch, made a pact with Hell to come back to life. And she got an answer, which means that bureaucracy in Hell is way more effective than here. She got a scroll with instructions on how to get brought back to life... and how to stop it. Why the scroll has the instructions on how to stop the ritual is anyone's guess, but my bet is that the devil really likes messing with people, even his own followers.
|Sorry. I think you are trying to say something important but somehow my mind keeps getting distracted by other things. Big things.|
And after three paragraphs of exposition -and believe me, I’ve been brief- it's finally time to actually play the game. We start outside the castle with an empty bag in our possession. We didn’t find the exorcism book after all. There is not much to do here. We can click on the sign next to the main gate and get a close up, but that’s about it.
|Seems so peaceful in the pic...|
|But… but… but… that’s an axe… AN AXE!! I want to satiate my homicidal impulses :(|
|So… the gatekeeper… don’t you have a… blind spot? *wink* *wink*|
|A dagger and a cake? A dagger? Where is my AXEEEEEEEE?!?!?!|
I’m being honest here.
And I’m also going to finish this post here. I just wanted to get the story out of the way. Join me on the next installment for the first real gameplay post.

TBD's note: Want more CAPs? Review an Elvira movie:
As everyone's probably forgotten (including me until Ilmari pointed it out) in the comments of the 1990 'Year Ahead' post I offered to give some of my hard-earned CAPs to anyone who writes a short review of either/both Elvira movies. That offer still stands, but the reward is doubled! Anyone who reviews an Elvira movie will get 10 official Adventure Gamer CAPs as well as 10 of my personal second hand CAPs. 20 CAPs for reviewing a movie or 40 CAPs for reviewing two movies - sounds like a great deal to me. Get on it, readers!
Note Regarding Spoilers and Companion Assist Points: There’s a set of rules regarding spoilers and companion assist points. Please read it here before making any comments that could be considered a spoiler in any way. The short of it is that no points will be given for hints or spoilers given in advance of me requiring one. Please...try not to spoil any part of the game for me...unless I really obviously need the help...or I specifically request assistance. In this instance, I've not made any requests for assistance. Thanks!
