kumir_k9: (Halloween)
Hi there.  I've been pretty much out of touch for a couple days in preparation for my high unholy day of the year, Halloween.  As most of you know I put on a pretty lavish haunted house.  While things conspired against me doing it in NH to raise money for 2020 VisionQuest, nothing stopped me from doing it at my work.  Tuesday after work we brought everything from storage over to work and then Wednesday night after work I was here until 1:30 in the morning doing setup with a really awesome crew of people.  They started trickling off after about 8:00, but I'm grateful to every last one that stayed however long they did.  I got a quick 2 1/2 hours sleep in and was back at 7:00 to do the last of the setup.

We ran for about 2 1/2 hours, 3 or 4 people at a time.  The script got changed along to way to tweak things, since you never get practice runs on our schedule.  Fortunately I had sent out the script for the storyline a couple days before and people had been thinking about how they wanted to do it, which I was fine with.  My script had samples only.  A couple people ran with it, a few put their own spin on it and a few just did whatever the heck they felt like.  All in all it was totally awesome.  The video can be seen here:

Yes, we did in fact have a plant in each group that the werewolf grabbed and ripped her head off in front of the PCs... uh, guests.  Sorry, the 10 hours sleep I got last night has only restored me to partial functionality.  The bloody head went all the way through in the hands of the guide and was replaced on the altar at the end with a real head which screamed as it was sacrificed in the demon summoning.  Those of you who know Jack Voss, (Richard Horton/7V or Grimwold/Mirror, Mirror) will recognize the voice of the demon at the end.

The wizard actually appeared to be skinned right in front of them too as the brave volunteer who played the role was wearing not one, but two costumes.  She had on the skin tight anatomically correct musculature costume () and then was wearing a cloak over that and the mask of a wizard over the skin mask.  The lost the outer mask and the cloak when the demon kills her.  it was really quite effective.

So that was my Halloween.  I hope you enjoy it too.  :-)
