«Scene: Count Maxius' castle exterior»

EVERY 500 YEARS, THE BLOOD MOON APPEARS OVER LORE.
DURING THIS TIME, IT IS SAID THAT PORTALS WILL OPEN, LEADING TO STRANGE DIMENSIONS.
ONE OF THESE PORTALS HAS BROUGHT COUNT MAXIUS' CASTLE TO LORE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN CENTURIES.

«Scene: Hero and Bubble outside of the castle»

Bubble: And he's throwing the biggest Halloween party any of us have EVER seen!

Hero: That's really cool, Bubble.

Bubble: You don't understand. This castle is HUGE. And he's invited EVERYBODY!
Bubble: Kimberly… Voltaire… every cool person I've ever wanted to hang out with!

Hero: Wow, that sounds pretty intense!

Bubble: You'll be going too, right? Come on! It's going to be so much fun!

Hero: Well, I'd hate to be the only one missing out on all the fun.

Bubble: YAY! I'm going to go get ready. I'll see you there!

«Scene: Count Maxius and his moglin butler»

Count Maxius: I am SO glad to finally be here with you all, again!
Count Maxius: For centuries, I've been trapped in such a dreary, lonely dimension.
Count Maxius: It will be 150 years before I am able to throw a ball like this again.
Count Maxius: So let's enjoy it while we can, and make it a night to remember!

«Everyone nods»

Count Maxius: If you need anything, please don't hesitate to ask my butler, Barnabus. He is at your service.

«Scene: the gathered heroes»

Kimberly: Can I get a scary pony?

Voltaire: I have one I can lend you.

Hero: Man! Count Maxius seems SO nice, and his party is fantastic!

Voltaire: He has great taste in décor, too! I'd love to collaborate with him sometime.

Hero: It's a shame he can't stick around. I wish we could do this every year!

«Scene zooms out»

«The light turn off and everyone is cloaked in darkness»

Kimberly: Aww, you jinxed it!

Count Maxius: Everyone stay calm. There's no need to panic.
Count Maxius: Everything will be just fine.

«Everyone vanishes one by one, with the Hero last»

«Scene: the Hero in a dark void»

Hero: Uuugh… what happened?

«The void changes to a purple one with a glowing door in the distance»

Hero: AAAAAAAAAAAAH!

«Scene: Safiria is in the void with the Hero»

Safiria: Shh, <Hero>. I need you to stay calm. I'm going to get you out of here.

Hero: Safiria???
Hero: But… how??

Safiria: Count Maxius told you all that the Blood Moon is allowing him to appear in Lore.
Safiria: But he didn't tell you that he normally lives in Gehenna…
Safiria: …where the spirits of vampires go when they die.

Hero: He doesn't look dead to me.

Safiria: No…. he's not.
Safiria: Many centuries ago, Maxius fancied himself my rival for the throne.
Safiria: He challenged me the crown, thinking he was strong enough to best me.
Safiria: He was not. He lost, and the vampires of Darkovia banished him to Gehenna forever.
Safiria: The ritual was difficult to cast, and it would be even more difficult to reverse.
Safiria: Difficult… but not impossible.
Safiria: And now that the Blood Moon has allowed him to temporarily visit Lore…

Hero: You think he's going to try.

Safiria: Yes. I do.

Hero: Would that really be so bad, though? He seems like a really fun guy.

Safiria: Yes, he's incredibly charismatic and charming. Everyone loves him.
Safiria: But I've seen another side of him… a darker side.
Safiria: I don't know exactly what he's planning, but…
Safiria: We have to get everyone out of here before it's too late.
