Read the prelude here.
A spooky Ashenchromatic ghost tried to haunt the Count by speaking in a most unsettling, spooky ghost voice: "he is going to LEVITATE you out of your JORTS bro!"
"I think your corpse would make a brilliant mantel decor for one of the rooms back at my residence. Come to think of it, there was also a weird frog here, whom I could use as a centerpiece for one of our dining tables. And that pumpkin-headed fellow who was lurking around here... now that would make for a fine court jester."
"I could give you all cushy jobs and pay you extremely handsomely, so long as you make the place sufficiently spooky and endlessly entertaining for me and my henchwomen!"
"Here, I'll even provide you some entertainment of your very own to keep things fair."
"It's this kind of man-shaped object, sort of fleshy, kind of Solisy. See?"
"It's also really good at spitting facts. Watch this..."
Demonstrate the usefulness of a Solis.
A troubled FluxicEnk approached the Agent: "Hey, yeah dude, I'm so sorry to bother you, but I got my head stuck In this pumpkin and I can't get out, I've been here for hours, and you look official, please help me."
And then, out of nowhere, Shadow The Hedgehog commanded: "Hey Solis count how many sand there is."
He will count all the sand in the world posthaste.
nevermind3476 said: "Now HANG ON HERE! This Solis is dressed COMPLETELY differently from the one we were looking at not a moment ago! This isn't the REAL Solis! Are you trying to swindle us?"
Surely not a question you'll receive an answer to.
Perhaps the AGENT Solis is simply the count's personal copy, and the rest of his followers only get one of the GENERIC Solii.
Meanwhile, Wight approached the detective with an offering: "I have some Captain Morgan Pumpkin Spiced Rum if you'd like to try some."
Lunk also approached the detective: "Wow, Mr. Detective, I'm a huge fan! I drew this masterpiece as an offering for you. What do you think?"
This definitely has to be framed and hung somewhere on his bedroom's walls, he says!
nevermind3476 politely inquired: "Would you consider licorice bitter?"
Loudly, he announces:
"I'm going to kill the MONSTER VAMPIRE. Anyone who wants to do the same, get your weapons and join me NOW."
His purpose is clear, and his message, simple.
A concerned Mysteriousmaverick approached the man:
"I doubt the hostess witch will allow that, good hunter, but some of us can still be convinced to fight anyways due to our strange proclivities. Please inform us as to what sorts of candy you and the people around you would prefer."
A nervous robot, Lay's Chips, spoke up:
"But mister... wouldn't you get in trouble with the witch for that? Vampire monster prince sir is another guest..."
pikarai enthusiastically cheered: "HE'S OVER THERE LET'S GET HIM"
Then, the frog Reader attempted to KEEP the PEACE:
"FREEZE, CRIMINAL!" *intimidating ribbit* "We've had ONE murder already, NO MORE party-goers will die tonight!"
Unfortunately, you're too tiny to be seen, and too froggy to be understood.
Yep, that was a life well spent.
Which is just like a normal ghost, but slightly cooler.
A cheerful Hans cheered as the newly-formed party took off: "RAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"
nevermind3476, thinking fast, cleverly tried to misdirect the mime: "I point the suddenly terrifying mouse in the direction of a nearby hallway, then run off as soon as she leaves. Hopefully that'll distract her for a while."
Meanwhile, the ghost Ashenchromatic, stuck in a moral dilemma, eloquently expressed his struggle: "Getting Kinda Fucking Bodied By This Choice Right Now."
It looks like you don't have a say in the matter anymore. You've simply been taken in to join a very... colorful entourage, for the lack of a better word.
You hear the witch's voice. Though you cannot identify it's source, it equally reaches every individual within the mansion, and pulls all attention towards it.
It was finally about time to answer.
"These are the twelve who will feast in the dining hall tonight.
Tell me, to whom does each treat belong?"
But while the witch was waiting for everyone's answers...
