A Creature of the Night stands in the grand foyer of his spooky, evil castle. No doubt there is some whip-wielding warrior traversing the building's man halls and traps in order to defeat this foul man.
But tonight, on the eve of his 400th year since he was sired with his undead form, he will abandon his usual haunts in order to play a game with his ghoulish acquaintances.
You open up a nearby coffin to retrieve a pair of SKELETAL ARMS!
There's also a whole skeleton in that coffin. Well, it WAS whole until you decided to steal the poor sap's arms. Sucks to be him. Maybe you can use these to smack around wahtever torch and pitchfork bearing peasants come your way to vanquish you or whatever.
You open up the program MAIM- Monster AOL Instant Messenger. It recently became available in Romania, and you aren't sure how you feel about it.

Hey guys, please calm down. It was the middle of the night when I put this here, and no one like Crepe was around to tell me where I should put this. The people I knew said "Celebritystuck is in /adv/, it should be fine to put Monstermashed there, since it's a SBurb session about Hollywood Movie Monsters!"
And I told myself I would put it here first because I really wanted to get it started, and if later on, Crepe or Milku or someone who actually knows wtf to do tells me to move it to OC, then I'd copy all the logs from here, delete the thread, and remake it in OC.
I spent several hours making minor details for this adventure, the cast of monsters, each monster's title Dracula will be the Count of Blood!, what their version of sBurb is called, what their version of pesterchum/trollian is called, their typing quirks, etc. I really wanted to get it started. The board it's on is, in the end, irrelevant. I just went with the logic that the people I knew told me.
But for now, the reasoning people told me to go by is that if there can be a Sburb session with celebrities in /adv/, then there can be a SBurb session of Media Horror/Thriller icons in /adv/.
I'm keeping my eye on the IRC to ask when someone who can make a final decision logs on. I have no qualms about moving it when someone who can make the final decision tells me to.
Until then, however, I will leave this adventure here for your viewing pleasure and get to work drawing Drac trolling AP (you'll get a kick out of who AP is!)
You decide to talk to the cryptic abstrusePsychopomp first.

AP: Although of corpse, I shouldn't say any morgue, or I'll ruin the SURPRISE!!
VD: I sincerely hope I won't have to put up with your horrible puns throughout the entire game.
AP: Hey now, there's no need to lose your DECOMPOSURE! HA!
AP: That would be a rrrotten thing to do, albeit rrripe for more PUNS!!
VD: Alright, let's get to the point.
AP: Ah! Is that a fang pun I SEE?
VD: No, no it isn't.
VD: Vas there anything you actually needed me to know, or are you just going to be spooky and cagey?
AP: Since when have any of our disgustions been any less cagey and CRYPTIC?!
AP: I assure you, I merely wished to inform you of the importance of this GAME!!
AP: Why it is important, and what rrrole you have to play, is for you to find OUT!!
AP: In any case, I will be your server PLAYER!!
AP: You will be the first player to enter, and from there, you will have your work cut out for YOU!!
AP: You will have to dievide your time between playing and being Xena's SERVER!!
AP: You will certainly have to urn your KEEP!!
AP: There will be no room for MIS-STAKES!!

BH: because you bozos stuck me between two of the slowest monsters around!
BH: itd only be worse if i was the server for UW instead of ST!!
BH: cant i be the server player for someone like SC or SE?
BH: or maybe even LS?
VD: For one thing, it was the Crypt Keeper who devised much of the entry order.
VD: And as we all know, it is vise to trust his judgement, as much of a pain as he is.
VD: You were placed between PM and ST for a reason, both to test and strengthen those two, as vell as you.
VD: And for another thing, Xena insisted on being LS's server player, and I do not wish to deny her that.
BH: if you lot are gonna force me to have the most boring game around then fine by me!!
BH: ill show you whats what!
BH: ill make turn those slowpokes inta speed demons!
