The Haunting of BotB Manor
  2nd/28   Σ29.704   Oct 19th 2020 1:14pm
You, a fresh n00b, just had your car break down in the middle of nowhere on this dark and stormy night. With howling winds and crashing lightning bolts, you decide to seek shelter at the mysterious BotB manor in the distance. You tried knocking on the front door, but there was no answer.

[Start of Song] Your body jolts as thunder crashes and wolves howl in the distance, and suddenly the door springs open. Quickly you dash inside, spotting a meowing black cat in the corner of your eye, but as soon as you have entered, the door slams shut.

[0:09] The halls of the manor are filled with the hum of threatening silence as you take steps further inward. You could have sworn that you have seen a glimpse of a strange pigtailed girl with goggles. As you venture further inward, suddenly the room begins to come alive.

[0:22] Translucent apparitions appear all around you, oddly dancing right before your eyes. Strangely, you do not feel afraid, yet you cannot stop yourself from staring at these spirits. All kinds of specters seem to be present, to the right you see one cloaked in red robes, wait no, is that two? Could that be a tree person to the left? Why are so many wearing goggles?

[1:07] Suddenly the room begins to brighten and transform, and all that was once ghostly now seems very much real. A once bleak mansion has now become adorned with ornate marble and decorations. The spirits have now began to notice you, welcoming you to join in to their strange waltz. Oddly, you do not seem to resist and you too join in with the others. You cannot help but feel at peace despite how much the room continues to spin with each passing step.

[2:00] Yet as quickly as the room transformed into a grand palace, the illusion quickly broke with meow of a cat. All the spirits disappeared, as well as the mansion returning to its old dusty interior. You begin walking back toward the front door trying to comprehend what had just happened, but as you reach for the door's handle, you realize that you cannot grasp it. Hesitantly, you bring your hands close to your face, but you soon realize that they are no longer there. In a panic, you look at the rest of your body, seeing that you are fading away! As a wolf howls in the distance, you sense someone behind you. You turn around and see the strange girl with the pigtails. She giggles away as you disappear out of existence.

The BotB manor claims another victim.

This is fantastically made. Reading the story while you listen is a must. This might be my favorite of the whole compo! Well done :D.

here's a story i made when i was in the irc server:
The door is opened. And the men are walking. And what they see is something pretty weird. But instead they danced over that weird thing, more specifically doing salsa or tango, idk. And then the weird thing gets ALIVE! But actually the weird thing is quite kind. So they danced together with the weird thing and they named him Tenga. And then they opened another door and they saw a WOLF trying to sabotage Tenga and his friends
