Your favorite saturday morning cartoon is ANT QUEST. Your hero is SCARS OF YESTERDAY. Your favorite person is your DAD. You want to be a SUPER HERO when you grow up. You really like watching BASEBALL with your dad. Your most special thing is your AUTOGRAPHED BASEBALL BAT, signed by "Big" Benedict Shields.

You just moved into a NEW HOUSE. Its very big, and your dad says he got it at a NICE PRICE. Most of the stuff in the house is still in BOXES. Your dad really likes this NEW HOUSE. You think its kinda creepy. So Dad needs to check under the bed for monsters for you.

Haven't you seen movies like this before? Don't you know what's going to happen?

Lil' Ben's going to mention the word 'monster' or mention his father being eaten, and they're going to assume it's a crank call. That's how these movies always go. Fuck that.

Listen to me, Lil' Ben. What you need to do is take a page from Kevin McCallister and Home Alone the fuck out of your house. These sort of creepy night monsters tend to keep their word - you won't be interrupted until night falls again. Be sure to make your traps as lethal as possible, cause I'm pretty sure this monster's not going to take any shit.

Good luck, little hero. We're rooting for you.

It's been a long 13 years. 13 years since I ran away from home. 13 years since I ran away from the monster that killed my father. 13 years since I became an orphan.

It's only a few more hours until night time. Halloween, the time the spirits come out. It's been exactly 13 years... unlucky. But I didn't come unprepared. I brought Big Ben with me... and a few other things.

Then comes the most important, balls of steel and experiance in fighting dread monsters coupled with dedication to seeing this particular beastie dead. Fucker thinks he can get away simply because it has been 13 years? He's wrong, dead wrong. And you're about to show him just how dead.

Ooo, that one's important. Set it to go off if he dies; if the worst happens and the monster gets him, it's best to have insurance that at least the monster bit it as well.

Other important things: Light sources, light sources everywhere! At least two flashlights, plus one of those helmets with a light on it for hands-free illumination, plus a couple powerful portable lamps.

A getaway car, in case things go horribly wrong and you're forced to retreat.

Not sure how strong the monster is, but perhaps hammer/nails for sealing doors closed? Or other assorted tools.

In front of the building, I empty my backpack, taking stock of my possessions, and prepare for the confrontation.

I brought a Crowbar, for prying open doors and windows, because the house has been abandoned since I left it;

a Tank of Gasoline, for lighting up rooms if necessary;

a Zippo brand Lighter, because Zippos stay lit when you don't hold them, so I might be able to set up a trick with this;

2 bottles of water, for drinking. They'll only help against the most mild of fires;

a Bar of Chocolate, because its delicious and helps steady my nerves;

a 12" sawn off double barreled 12-gauge shotgun, currently unloaded, for shooting things. It has no accuracy to speak of beyond 10 feet;

12 shotgun shells;

2 cans of heavy duty bugspray, because even if it isn't actually a bug, it can work like poisonous pepper spray, and is nearly as flammable as hair spray;

Medkit, in the likely event I get hurt. I packed extra supplies specifically for treating burns, in case any of the fires get too out of hand;

2 high powered flashlights, because I don't think the house still has electricity running to it, and I want anywhere I go to be lit up like dawn;

Pocket flashlight, which will be tied around my forearm using

one roll of Duct Tape. Duct tape fixes everything, except what needs a

Jar of Grease, for coating surfaces and hopefully make Yaramahoo slip;

And, of course, Big Ben.

I was unable to acquire a suicide vest. If I can't stop him, I'll need to make sure everything burns.

I have about 2 hours of set up before nightfall. I don't think he'll be out until then, at least. I need to be thorough - if I fail tonight, I need to wait another year to try again.
No. 248822 ID: c71597

Well then, start off by making sure nobody lives there right now. If they call the cops because some bum with a shotgun is trying to break down the front door then there would be problems.

So scout out the place and see if anything has changed these last 13 years.
No. 248900 ID: 8bc1ac

Floorplan. That's what else we needed. We lived there, though, so we've got an idea of what it looks like, right? Let's see if we can find a good entry point and route.

You also need to set up a computer to play inspiring battle music. Definitely make sure Another Winter is in that collection in case you need to get down and dirty with fisticuffs
No. 248944 ID: 1963d1

Or just use an mp3 player?

He has a point though. The proper music can lend a substantial psychological boost, which is good considering your history with this thing. We don't want you freezing up in the field because of a repressed fear of the monster.

Also, to that end, I still hope you brought your Balls of Steel. Really man, you'll need 'em.

No music. It'd be a distraction. In addition, I'd already checked out the place - it's been abandoned since I left, primarily because the police had been investigating it for months after, and one of them died on the scene. It's been called "Haunted," and the realtors can't sell it. Well, we're here for an exorcism.

Ground Floor

Porch: The front entryway of the building. The doors and windows here are boarded, and the right said has begun to topple from disrepair. An escape off of the roof of this is not something you'll be able to do, this time around.

Main Hall: This area is pretty wide open, and a good place to confront the beast. The middle of it is dominated by a dining table, and under the stairs is a closet. This room connects to every other room on the ground floor. The stairs are guarded by a railing. The north end of this room is home to a coat rack and a place to put shoes. It also tended to be used as a storage area for random stuff, but there's nothing there now.

Living Room: Another wide open area, but this one is full of furniture. The south wall has a cabinet for displaying dad's miniatures, and the north wall has an entertainment center: TV, VCR, SNES system. I played a lot of Mario here with Dad. It all seems really outdated now. The middle of the room has a couch and an armchair. There is a short passageway to the kitchen here, but it is almost large enough to be another room. We never really did anything with it, so it's empty.

Kitchen: Oven, fridge, microwave, countertop, bowls, knives. Nothing unusual here. Any food in here should not be touched.

Bathroom: Toilet, sink, expired cleaning supplies (I didn't know they could expire, but the smell of mold says otherwise), and a shower are here. The window out is high and tiny; going into this room would probably be a death trap.

Second Floor

2F Hall: Connects to every other room on the second floor. There is a railing here, and you can overlook the Main Hall from here. This might be useful. The landing above the staircase is mostly predominated by a large glass case displaying all of dad's miniatures here. He loved painting them, it was his hobby.

My Room: Where it all went down. There is a window overlooking the porch roof, which I used to escape.

Bedroom: Dad's room. Mom passed away when I was even littler, so it was always just him and I. There is also a window here overlooking the porch roof. His bed is here, and some wardrobes. Some posters about something called WH40k are here, as well as a bookshelf containing fantasy and sci fi novels.

Work Room: Where Dad did his work. I never knew what he was. It doesn't matter much now. It has a bunch of junk in the back, likely nothing useful.

Play Room: You might think this is where I played, but this is actually where Dad played. I usually played in my room or in the Living Room, with Legos or video games. Dad would bring his friends here and take his minis out of the glass case in the hall, and they'd play on this really fancy table covered in green stuff. As a kid, I'd sometimes watch them. It looked fun. There is also a bookshelf here, full of really fat, hardcover rules books.

Laundry Room: Where we did our laundry. Washing machine, Drier, and a place to hang up clothing. We stored toiletries here, too - toilet paper, cleaning supplies (also expired), towels. Also probably a death trap, if I got caught in here, as this is the only room in the building without a window going outside.
No. 250313 ID: e3f578

Did you have an aunt or Grandparent or something? Where did you stay all these years? Search Dad's room for other flammable things or anything that could be made as a useful trap. Damn, I wish that kid from Home Alone was here

He checked every room when making the map.

I was unable to determine my Dad's job based on what was left. Just some filing cabinets - editor? Accountant? Novelist? It's impossible to tell from what's left. It's not too important.

With few ideas of what to do, I decide to wait for him.
