HALLOWEEN HAUNTED GRIMSLEY VILLAGE

Halloween Haunted Village - PART 1
Plan to spend your day shopping at the The Thrifty Witch.  Then it is off to the Grizelda’s for a new quaff and on to the Retching Toad Eatery for dinner.  Ring in midnight at the Happy Bat Tavern.  In the morning (if you survive), on your way out of town stop at Ghoul & Sons Chemist for whatever ails you.


Halloween Haunted Village - PART 2
First stop is the Black Cat Emporium where you’ll find unique, strange and sometimes ghoulish items.  If you want to stay the night you can always get a room at the Buzzard Bed & Breakfast and should something unfortunate and final occur, Cadaver & Digger Undertakers will take care of everything.

Halloween Haunted Village 
GHOSTMORE MANOR
Every village has its haunted mansion, a place that is whispered about and strangers are warned not to go near.  For Grimsley Village it's Ghostmore Manor. Some say it's cursed other say it’s full of dark magic.  Even the dastardly Cadaver and Diggers Undertakers avoid Ghostmore.
Halloween Haunted Village - MAD SCIENTIST LABORATORY
It’s a dark and stormy night in Grimsley Village, the kind of night Dr. Deranged has been waiting for.  Tonight he will be taking advantage of the lighting storm to further his work on animating a giant brain.
With help from his mechanical minions, Dr. Derange hopes to see the culmination of his diabolical plans.
Inside all preparations have been made.  The brain is resting on the platform being fed by tubes of fluid.  The electrodes are in place leading up to the lightning collector installed on the roof.
In a fevered frenzy, Dr. Deranged works to finish the construction of his electrical plasma machines which he hopes will harness enough energy to animate the brain.  His work is cutting edge and dangerous.  If things don't work out, no doubt Cadaver and Digger will be the first on the scene.
You can see his formulas on the chalkboard, books, charts and laboratory equipment.  It’s taken years of work culminating in this one night.
On the outside, the lab appears calm and serine surrounded by seasonal pumpkins and vines, but inside it’s a different story.
The storm is getting closer, which means it’s time to fire-up the machines.
Everyone in Grimsley Village senses something is about to happen.  After tonight, the world might not ever be the same……BWAHAHAHAHA
