    Whose Your Daddy

    I've been causing some trouble of late.

    Our Alien, Pod People, Invasion of the Bodysnatchers types; seem t'have gone to ground, yeah?

    Well, time to shake them up a bit, says Uncle Edgar.

    Bill is running the Wanted Posters (my idea, by the way, what would these chumps do without me, meep?), means we wait for hits, right?

    I don't think so.

    I didn't get as far as I have in this whole "High Roller" business by sitting on my hands - as Old Grampa Stokes used to say: "A Man's gotta work."

    So, my trial run as Lil' Timmy Donner was a success. Time to up the game.

    I've been haunting the Zanesville area wearing bits of our old pal Martin. Glad I took his head. Sometimes his brother too.

    Hit those fancy doorbells, lookin' all scared...

    "Mommy? Moooommmy?"

    "Hello?"

    "Are you my daaaadddy?"

    *Incoherent laughter & gibberish*

    Hah, meep! Heh...sometimes I kill myself.

    Anyway, this isn't just about casing a ruckus for it's own sake. Figure these alien sons of bitches haven't had a taste of good ol' Gothic Horror East Coat Style - I'm talking Edgar Allen Poe, here, yeah? Keep 'em off balance. Keep 'em guessing. Sooner or later, they'll make a mistake.

    When they do, Ol' Uncle Edgar will be waiting for them, Jaggers out & ready to "Do unto others" as they done did unto those poor brats in Zaneville.

    Won't stop with them though. Once I crack open some ribs...get to that "Tell Tale Heart," meep...

    "Quoth the Raven; Nevermore."

    Hustling

    I wonder sometimes...

    If you were on the down & out, nowhere to go, no kin to call your own, what is rock bottom?

    Beyond the obvious, dead-in-a-ditch option, course.

    I mean, what would folks be willing to do to belong. To have prospects? To never die?

    Well, maybe not "never" but at least live for a long ass time. Well past the point you were tired of it.

    To not get sick.

    That's the easiest angle, that there: hit up the Tech Mogul whose got the terminal Big "C" & make him a Devil's Deal.

    After all, what's your life worth, Mr Billionaire?

    Problem is, I fucking hate those people. They don't deserve to be like us. Just the idea gets me riled. A Rich Ghoul, fattened up like a pig.

    So if not them, with all that money & power...who then?

    I think the down & out. People who got no illusions about life being a fucking box 'o chocalates. People who have been hardened, have become hopeless.

    Not too many though: Even ol' Moriah could run dry over a long enough time...no home is forever, they say.

    Huh...funny, that. Why turn anyone if food could get scarce? Why would you share? Especially with folks who got nothing to give anymore beyond themselves?

    I'm thinking it's a drive to see me & mine thrive...from what I can tell, Ghouls have been around as long as Humans have. Haven't seen many though. Are we dying out?

    So much I don't know. Need to track down some of those musty old books, learn a bit more about it all.

    Even so, I think I will give a handful of the locals a chance.

    Midian

    Mt. Moriah

     

    The times I went to Philly to see Aunt Flo, I always slipped away to go there. It's unreal, a giant boneyard built in the American Heartland...abandoned. Some tweakers, but mostly weeds, statues, crypts & the dead.

    We'd catch crawdad in Cobb's Creek, smoke ciggies tucked away in the headstones, throw empty bottles of Mickeys at the Crypts...

    Well, sorry kiddos: Edgar is back in town, & is taking his playground back.

    Thousands are buried here. Alone & abandoned. That's the beauty of it: no one own it. Not even the city.

    Buying a derelict property is one thing, but how do you buy something that no one owns? Sounds simple, but it ain't, apparently. Especially when it's a fucking gigantic graveyard. Can't just bulldoze it. Can't sell it. Just leave it to the wild to reclaim.

    The wild, & the Ghouls.

    My little pack of Ghouls followed my lead, & I led them straight & true to the Promised Land. Some digging, & we'll be in buisness. No worries there - digging is what we do best.

    Gonna have to get power down here, maybe put a pool table in the old Post building. Used Jules money to outfit an abandoned garage for when I want to be on my own...next I think I'll try to open things up a bit: Midian - "Where the Monsters live."

    That shouldn't just be us Ghouls. Any ol' Monster who ain't a bag of dicks should be able to at least be safe from the Normals here. That's the plan,m anyway. If they do turn out to be dicks, we'll just eat 'em after all. No loss (for us anyway).

    Need to take some more bounties...though I do owe Slick pretty big for his Portal (Obviously never read Amber, Ol' Slick: a portal to anywhere? Fuck an A!!).

    Big plans, you betcha. Just need time, & that's something I've got.
