Headburro sometimes arranges ‘flash mob’ outings for his Group the ‘Backpacking Burros’. As a member of his group I was invited along to one tonight. The location had been kept a secret until we received the teleport details, minutes before the time to meet. Well it turned out to be a scary night as we were to explore a haunted house and try to figure out the maze of tunnels inside, complete with clues, that would lead us to the exit. At first it was just me Pinkie and Head and we thought that was it, so we started exploring.
Inside the house proved to be a creepy place, cold and damp and very inhospitable. Pinkie landed in a pool of slime that appeared to be leaking out of the wall, however, luckily she didn’t hurt herself and we carried on looking for the right way to go. We had started with a choice of three routes and the first one proved to be a dead end, so we had to start over again and pick another one. Fortunately we were not left alone for long, Osprey turned up to keep us company and later TR and Rusty also joined the group.
The corridor, this time, led us to some real creepy places, with spiders, rats and body parts being scattered all over the place, we became more terrified as time went on.
Pinkie, being very brave, decided the best way to combat her fear was to actually sit on the body parts, however, it did not work as we both sat quivering in the chair afterwards, trying to settle our nerves. Head sat at a table, but even that had been used to dissect a body and the axe and a severed hand were still in evidence. We were growing frantic in the end trying to find our way out, as the whole place became more and more manic, filling with ghosts and gauls.
Osprey had to leave the group and we all reluctantly said goodbye to her as we battled on to find our way out. It was a good job we had geniuses Head and Rusty with us as they found the last clue to open the door allowing us to escape into normality. Anyway, they all decided to come back to my place to unwind and we had a nice chat and relaxed after a scary and exciting evening. Thanks Headburro for arranging such a cool night out.
