Lights Out in the Bedroom
Lights Out in the Bedroom

You slowly make your way through the maze of nightstands that is Lord and Lady Spookyraven's bedroom. It's kind of ridiculous in here. Okay, yes, a nightstand is sort of defined by its presence in a bedroom, next to a bed, but Lady Spookyraven's collection obviously got a bit out of hand. You can't even see the bed from here.

Then, suddenly, the lights go out, and you can't see anything at all. Crap! From somewhere in the house, you hear the mournful gonggg of a clock chiming out the hours. Without really intending to, you count them, and then wish you could call for a recount because you came up with 13.


Search for a light

You pause for a moment, wondering what to do. Maybe there's a candle in one of the nightstand drawers? That's a possibility, but some of these nightstand drawers contain teeth that will bite your hand off.

You hear a shuffling, scuffing, scraping noise. It sounds a bit like a nightstand slowly making its way across the bedroom carpet toward you.


Run away

To heck with this! You shove your way through the nightstands, in the general direction of the bedroom door. In the pitch darkness, it takes a while to find it, and then you have to flail like an angry toddler to find the doorknob, but eventually you get it open and step out into the hallway... just as the lights come back on. Whew!


Hide under the bed
You push through the nightstands until you find the bed (by banging your knees against it) and crawl underneath. Wait... isn't under the bed where monsters hide?
You hold your breath for a minute, but don't hear anything. Maybe you're okay, since this is the grown-ups bedroom, and monsters only hide under kids' beds.
Well, and ancient crypts and caverns and temples and all the other places you've fought them and hey! Wait a minute! What are you doing hiding under the bed like a child?
You crawl back out from under the bed, thankful that it's pitch-dark in here so nobody saw that. And then you're thankful for the lights coming back on.

Search a nearby nightstand
Although you can't see them, you know they're around. This whole room is packed to the gills with nightstands. You could reach out a hand without moving and touch three or four.
That doesn't necessarily make it a good idea.

Check a nightstand on your left
You reach out your left hand and fumble about. To your relief, you find a brass candlestick, with a stump of a candle still in it. Some more careful fumbling results in a box of matches to light it with.
Just as you light the candle, the lights in the house come back on. Well, doesn't that just figure? You look around for the nightstand that you heard stalking you, but they all have innocent expressions on their... er, drawers?
Wait, what's this? You find a scrap of note-paper under the candlestick. You give it a quick scan -- it appears to be a note from Lady Spookyraven to one of the maids. It says:
Audrey,
Little Stephen has asked for more more medical supplies for his "patients". I wish he wouldn't keep bringing those poor creatures into the house, but I hesitate to discourage him from his dreams of becoming a veterinarian. Such a shame that he doesn't appear to have any talent for it.
Be a dear and restock his medical kit in the nursery -- bandages, sewing needles, morphine, that sort of thing. I believe he keeps the key with his teddy bear.
-- Lady S.

Check a nightstand on your right
You reach out your right hand and fumble about. You find something round, basically cylindrical, and cool like glass... your fingers slip into the open top of it. Ew, it's wet, and SNAP
As the lights come back on, you're running screaming out into the hallway, with a pair of Lord Spookyraven's dentures clamped on your hand.

Run away

To heck with this! You shove your way through the nightstands, in the general direction of the bedroom door. In the pitch darkness, it takes a while to find it, and then you have to flail like an angry toddler to find the doorknob, but eventually you get it open and step out into the hallway... just as the lights come back on. Whew!


Flee
