Gore-tastic vengeance isn't the only thing you have to worry about when you take advantage of young girls.  Grandma can be much more subtle in her nastiness.

So Merwin wasn't whispering through the ducts. It was Repler. However, I did not make this move. It was the ugly dwarf.

You can't escape the aliens. Even if you leave them the horror of their deeds to view. They are there. And observing you. If you're lucky, they're not checking to see what makes you tick.

I like the rapid-fire killing, and I'll keep it going, but I don't have any more I really want to add the second point to right now.  Time to triple up on my favorites.  I don't have too much of a problem with what has died so far though, this is a good slaughterhouse I think.

While driving around to check out all the garages, one is running on the black blood of dead gods.

While I enjoyed 7 Garages, I really dug Black Hill. We're getting down to much more difficult kills. I'm also eyeballing a story or two worth resurrecting in a bit. Any opposition to imposing a rule to not allow resurrections after we have 10 left on the list? We're down to 32 left. We may also want to save resurrections until the point at which we have 25 or fewer stories. I think between 25 and 10 grants a good window and shouldn't destroy pacing too significantly.

no opposition here, I think the waiting is good stategy in general, and when your that close to the end, the undead would be just annoying, especially with the few of us participating so far.

I don't have that much to say except after reasearching the reality behind "Blue Eyes" made it 10 times better. While the week before left me wanting to cheer, but not excited enough to make a sound.

Sounds like a good rule to me as well.  That said, I was kind of hoping we were going to assign bonus points based on the nominations thread when that closes (to make up for the even start, as pointed out), and if we also allowed resurrections, that would make for a whole "night of the living dead" feel on the day the nominations thread closed.  Honestly, I don't much care, I like playing the game more than trying to find the optimal rules for the game.

If people want to use the rule suggested, I am very much okay with that.  Funny, after I turned off my computer last night, I thought "Crap, didn't need to go triple, should have given points to Black Hill."  So thanks for that vote.

I spent all day hunting for another story to give a second point to, in penance for forgetting Black Hill.  The answer didn't come to me until I called my girlfriend.  Terrifying coincidence.

Although we must admire her dedication to revenge, I think she needs to let go and help bring someone else along into acceptance of otherworldly revenge on less-than-stellar parents.

I spent all day hunting for another story to give a second point to, in penance for forgetting Black Hill.  The answer didn't come to me until I called my girlfriend.  Terrifying coincidence. 

Dude. Honestly, I'm a little worried by that.

So I am honestly glad to be a good source of inspiration
but... really?
Just remeber 2 things, you would never serve me up, even if I was so willing and secound valentines day is coming up fast... and I'm the one with the demons...

It's almost that time that I won't be able to outrite kill something,
lets take a secound to truly mourn that fact untill next year

and then kill a story that made even me, a wearwolf lover, not like a story with my favorite beasts in it
and give it to a story that I would hang on my wall or plant in my own garden if it worked that way.

Dude. Honestly, I'm a little worried by that.

They weren't linked, just that is when the thought occurred to me (random brain workings).  Given the content of the story, I thought it was worth sharing my worrying coincidence, but I don't mean that to be taken as seriously reflecting any aspect of anything.

This is a horror podcast, let's lighten up and allude to awful (fictional) implications.

Oh and a quick vote before I go to sleep.  I'm offing the last 1-pointer I can bear to kill.  I liked Sound of Gears, didn't like the Christmas flash much, and as to Little Monster, it was actually my favorite from Flash on the Borderlands VI, yes, above Escape, but I didn't love it enough to save it.  I don't have to be the one to kill it though...
