Dread Hill House
an English country mansion



"The guests will arrive soon. You know what you have to do," articulated professor David Styles slowly, as if his butler was incapable of understanding normal speech.

"I know, Sir." The butler, Walker, bowed respectfully as the professor gave him one final significant look and closed himself in his laboratory.

Carefully, Walker took a tour of the place and checked that everything was in order. The huge table was set in the lit dining room, the dumb maid was in her kitchen, the doors that should have been locked were locked, and the secret passageways were well out of view. Just as he was moving back into the main hall, the doorbell rang ominously.

Walker grinned to himself. The party had just begun.

:enters the dining room:

Hello everybody! Wait... is there anybody in here? Gosh, i hate being the fist one to arrive.
Where's the food anyway?

:sees a bowl of chips and grabs one, sitting down in an armchair:

Krss to butler: Where's the light in this hall? Do you know what a light is? Can you understand English?? Something creepy and wet just brushed my face!!

Butler: *shoves Krss into the dining room*

Krss: Hey, that was.. Oh, look, there's Santi stuffing his face with chips. I have a short attention span, so I just forgot what the butler did to me.

Oh, it's only you. Jesus, you scared the crap out of me!

I think I saw that tapestry move. Gijs, you'll crash the table probably.

*takes some chips and a Coke*

The professor sure is modern about his food.

Do you know why you're here?

By the way, the chips are horrible. They seem they are at least two hundred years old. Do you want a glass of wine, Krss and Gjis?

And gosh, now I have seen it too! The penguins on the tapestry are winking at me!

Someone should shoot those penguins.

I don't drink spirits.. Not since my drinking accident.

:hands in the chips to Gjis and fills him a glass of Châteaubriand:

Have you noticed anything odd apart from those penguins who keep staring at us from the tapestry?

And Krss, how come you do not drink spirits? You wouldn't fit in a ghost house (sorry for the pun)... and apart from this I'm sure the coke is poisoned. I saw it in a film!

Anything odd? How about the fact that the house chuckles from time to time? Right now.. did you hear that?

I had a drinking accident a few years ago. I drank myself under the table and it fell on me. They found me after three days. *looks aside and sighs dramatically*

Oh, so you were that one who was eventually saved by the Anonymous Alcoholist Association? Interesting...

:calls the butler and asks him about the chuckles in the house. However the butler is deaf and does not understand the question, so wanders away in the kitchen thinking that Santi asked for some sausage sandwiches:

Come on, Gijs! Stand up from that table edge or you'll end breaking it up... and what if by chance there will be Krss at the moment of the breaking?

Yes. That was me. I had to go through hours of mental therapy just to forget all that gum stuck under the tabletop.

I think the butler is up to something. Do you see his curious little beady eyes?

I don't even want to think about something like that. The gum, it haunts me. *downs a glass of wine* Hey, this is good..

I think Gijs fell asleep. I saw there were some lit bedrooms upstairs, should we move him there?

Butler to Marion: Walk this way please. *ambles off*

Marion: no wonder the fellow's name is Walker. *follows, sees food and drinks*

Ahh! Spirits! These are from 1876. A fine year. No wonder they are dressed in period costume.

*sees other guest*

AHH! ...Oh sorry, it's a mirror.

*sees real guests*

Hi everyone! *helps to move Gijs*

*Wakes up in a strange bed*

Holy sh..! What was in that wine? How did I get here?
Damn, the taste of those horrible chips is still in my mouth.

*Get's out of bed*
Great, atleast nobody changed my clothes.

I need to get some breakfast.

*Walks out of the room and comes into a hallway*

These doors all look alike. Ah, I think I need to go off the stairs there.

*Walks down the stairs*

Ah, yes that's the dining room.
*Walks into the dining room*

Hmmm they must all be asleep. There should be kitchen around here.

*Takes some chips without noticing it*
Guagh!
*spits it out on the carpet*
Gros!

Somebody broke the table, I wonder who that could be..

Huh? Who was that? I heard you chuckeling! I hope it's not that freaky butler.

*Takes the bottle of wine and relaxes in a chair*

What's up with that pinguin?

You don't seem to be able to handle spirits well, Gijs.:tongue:

Why don't we go for a penguin chase? It would help you to free your mind... and we could explore the house a bit.

:picks up his fancy purple bag and extracts a torch:

Marion, do you want to come, too? And what about the lady?

You actually found your way down, Gijs. Good for you! I thought the moving bed canopy would be the end of you.

I have a heck of a hangover.

Marion, why are all these spirits behind you dressed in period costumes?

And could anyone, for the love of all that is good and pure, which is not me, please take this table off my face? I want to explore the house too.
