The Haunting at Greenleaf castle........

201 posts in this topic

Welcome to "The Haunting of Greenleaf's Castle." This is an interactive Halloween mystery and all Greenleafers in residence are welcome to join and explore as much as you like. Be careful where you wander because the Scarlet Dragon stands guard at the castle together with Terrifying Maddie, the 3-headed watchdog,and the terrifying Monsterface, the watchcat. If you stray off the path, they might put you in the castle dungeon.

The adventure begins with the ominous sound of a doorbell. Ding Ding DONG. It's a telegram for Nancy . The telegram is from Pandora Poltergeist. It's an urgent but cryptic message. In fact, it's a cryptogram message:

Ms. Nancy immediately packs her bags and books the next flight to Greenleaf land. Auntiegram's Taxi is waiting at the airport to whisk Nancy to Greenleaf Castle. It's a dark and stormy night. Lightning flashes across the sky. The rain pounds the roof of the taxi like a demented drummer as the wind howls and swirls. The taxi driver, Nan Nightowl drives in silence, her eyes staring straight ahead like a zombie. In the distance, a flash of lightning reveals Greenleafs Castle sitting at the top of a hill, surrounded by a tall stone wall. The turrets of the castle reach up to the sky like the bony fingers of a skeleton. Nancy thinks, "I wish my flight arrived at noon instead of midnight. This is really spooky." The taxi pulls up to the gate but it's locked. There's a sign posted on the gate. "No Gremlins or Smileys Allowed!" "Uh-oh" says Nancy. "I'd better remember not to use any Gremlins or Smileys while I'm here. I'd much rather sleep in a comfy warm bed than wind up in the dungeon." There's a keypad to enter a password but Nan Nightowl has forgotten the code. Nancy rolls down the window and reaches for the keypad. "Can you at least give me a hint for the access code?" Nan Nightowl thinks for a moment, then recalls "It's the name of a dreadful disease that commonly afflicts Greenleafers." Nancy thinks for a few minutes and her nimble fingers hit the ......................

(OK, We're off and running on our Halloween Adventure. It's somebody elses turn to pick up the story. Be sure to add a Halloween flourish to the names of our characters.) _________________________

first letter of the code bads (buy all dollhouses syndrome) she types. With a horrible shriek the gate begins to open. Nan Nightowl drives up the long approach to the castle and stops. "You'll have to get out yourself and carry your own luggage," she says."I'm not getting out here." True to her word as soon as Nancy got out and got her suitcase the taxi took off and disappeared into the night.

Nancy turned and started to walk across the bridge that crossed the mote and led to the huge archway leading to the castle courtyard. Ahead, on the other side of the archway she saw a faint light and what looked like the dark figure of a man or woman. As she approached the arch ...........

It became clear that it was a young female, with the face of a cat, The cat lady looked her in the eye and handed her a Garfield out of her pouch on her belt and said build it but let it not be like the box you must build bigger and taller, she handed her a Harrison, out of a small pouch on her belt. Nancy asked what else do you have in there? All in time she said, all in time. . .

faster, faster, faster she hears from the dark recesses of the castle. There are many, many more buildings to build. Don't stop or it is to the dungeon you go. Oh my, she cries, where can I find more miniaturists to help. Then she remembers a place where she can always turn to for help. But how do I reach them she cries.......

She then looks in one of the many boxes of doll houses that the cat lady brought in. It was then she realized, on the very top was a lab top with wi fi, She powered it up, and googles the worlds best mini group, She then clicks on to the greenleaf forum, and post's that she needs victims to help her with her B A DS, First hallowell responds saying that he will be over with a army of bespaq, then Tracy, (MinisOnTtheEdge), who say she will be here with buckets of paper clay then holly with Spackle then . . . .

unless .... the Scarlet Dragon finds un-squared corners and backwards miters and paint drips on the windows. If he does ... she will face the intense wrath of Terrifying Maddie, the 3-headed watchdog. If only she had brought along "Kutie" !!!

Now, as Nancy struggled to finish figuring out the rest of the original message from Pandora, the ghosts that she was warned about in the telegram become restless. The plans they have can only create more horrors for Nancy. oo-ooo-oooo-ooooo-oooooo ...

Where and who can she turn to for protection? Perhaps she needs the Wizard's assistance ...

Sir Corwin told Nancy that unless she finished all the dollhouses,she would never leave.And when he meant all of the dollhouses,he meant every dollhouse had to be finished."But there's no way",Nancy cried!"It can't be done.A dollhouse is never finished!".Sir Corwin laughed-"You're here to stay!".Nancy scoped out the room trying to find a way out.Will she ever find a way to enjoy her dollhouses but flee the clutches of Sir Corwin?She sought the help of Wolfie but she said "I wish I could help you but Corwin has cast a spell over me and I must bring more to him".The evil cat woman then brought in Margaret who looked at Nancy and said "I'll try and help you solve the code when he's not around ".Nancy realized that more of the Greenleafers were being imprisoned and unless she could solve the code....

They would all be here forever! As she gazed around the room, she noticed that more and more of the Greenleafers were appearing! She recognized several of them from their avitars. Anna was there, and Missymew, and miniwendy and Tinyjudi, and Deb, she even thought she spotted MiniMan (Dean), but wasn't sure, because he didn't look much like Brad Pitt. :wave: She thought the room would soon be too small, but even as that thought entered her mind, the room got bigger, and bigger!

Calling the Greenleaf gang together Nancy showed them Pandora's cryptic message; havanaholly & wolfie passed around the pencils and after a few hours they had puzzied out the message's meaning. "Pandora!" Tracy called; Pandora must be the key, since she's the Puzzler!" Before anyone could stop them they all ran off in different directions, seeking Pandora's office and scaring the poor Scarlet Dragon, who crouched whinpering in a corner of the room, alone with Nancy, who realized...
