Poor li'l Bun Two Three Four is a bit scared, but she also loves candy corn(n), so she'll accompany me!

You step into the Chateau, with Bun Two Three Four following anxiously behind you. You hear voices coming from deeper inside the mansion, but you don't recognize them...

From here you can go north to the Dining Hall, or go upstairs and go west to the Storage Room, north to the Bedroom Hallway or east to the Library. Or maybe you'd like to examine an object, or ask your Pokémon to use a move?

This looks fun.

Bringing my Meowth CateGory, time to search for berries in a spooky mansion!

The floorboards creak as you step into the Entrance Hall. CateGory looks around the room excitedly, searching for coins and shiny trinkets.

Going in with Xero the (possibly murderous?) Aerodactyl.

With some effort, you manage to squeeze Xero's wings through the door. You can already tell you're going to have some trouble moving around in here, but who cares? Xero sniffs the air, apparently sensing something deeper in the mansion...

Deru, you're holding a Sachet, right? That'll attract ghosts, who will give us things, right? That's definitely how it works. And if it's not, you're a Dark-type, so ghosts can't really hurt you. And you have fire, in case we see zombies. Let's go.

You and Deru step confidently into the Chateau, ready to kick some ghost ass and spread some nice scents. The air in the mansion is dusty and smells of mildew, so you wave the Sachet around for a bit. It makes you feel better.

It takes a bit of nudging, but you manage to coax Fluttershy into coming with you into the Chateau. Inside, you see Superbird and his Houndoom performing some sort of arcane ritual with scented herbs. You wonder if there are more cultists lurking deeper in the mansion...

Seaborne skips ahead of you into the mansion, yapping and sniffing, clearly excited about being a Cool Detective Dog. You follow behind, slightly more aloof in your demeanor, but secretly excited about mad cash. Seaborne seems to have caught a whiff of something strange...

From here you can go north to the Dining Hall, or go upstairs and go west to the Storage Room, north to the Bedroom Hallway or east to the Library. Or maybe you'd like to examine an object, or ask your Pokémon to use a move?

Let us go forth to the Storage Room.
Actions: 7/8
Candy Cornn: 0


Only a sliver of light reaches into the Storage Room, but you can see moldy books and cardboard boxes littering the floor. With both you and a fucking whale inside, the room feels claustrophobically tiny, magical miniaturization aside.

In the corner of your eye, you suddenly catch a glimpse of something moving - but when you turn around, nothing's there...

From here you can return to the Entrance Hall. Or maybe you'd like to examine an object, or ask your Pokémon to use a move?

A cold breeze drifts across your face as you enter the Bedroom Hallway, and the potted plants that line the hallway rustle slightly. The doors to the five bedrooms are all slightly ajar, as if waiting for you to enter. Barfie seems nervous...

Hey, look at that spot of dust on the floor! It's shaped like a sideways b for Barfie! It must be a sign. We've got to take a closer look.

Hey, a fucking whale, why not use Strength to help me tip the contents of that bookshelf out onto the ground? Maybe there is something hidden in there.

You and CateGory decide to take a closer look at one of the potted shrubs, which seems to be doing well, despite the lack of light in the room. In fact, how are these things so healthy? You reach into the leaves, pushing some apart, when suddenly CateGory swipes your hand away, and a branch lashes out where your hand would've been! In attacking you, however, the shrubbery moved and you saw a flash of orange and purple hidden under there. You know there's some Candy Cornn in there, but this plant seems like more than a match for you, at least.

Barfie sniffs the dust patch - I guess it does look like a backwards b, he reasons. On closer inspection, there's a distinct ring of silt around the edge of this dust patch that almost looks like ... water damage? You and Barfie both look up to the ceiling. There's a stain in the old white plaster, and the drywall has begun to flake and crack - this place really is decrepit. As the wind from outside howls through the Chateau, you can feel a draft coming from the ceiling. A bit of force would probably do the trick...

a fucking whale happily obliges, grabbing the bookshelf with both of her fins and knocking a collection of dusty tomes to the ground, before setting the bookshelf to one side with her tail. You begin to sift through some of the moth-eaten volumes and notice their tendency towards the more... macabre.



Finally, you find two pieces of Candy Cornn when a fucking whale pushes aside a copy of Ritual Sacrifice for Pokemon League Success with her nose.

Okay CateGory, although that plant is more powerful, you are fast and a great technician, we have that advantage on the shrub, and that we are two.
Use Fake Out on my signal to startle the shrub, and I will use this window of opportunity to grab that Candy Cornn!"

Bun Two, how about you Pound on the wall a bit beside that portrait on the right side on the upper level? Maybe we can get the attention of some of some ghoulish candy dispensers. And I'll shout a bit, too, to help you out. If we're lucky, maybe they'll give us some candy in exchange for us shutting up!

Aw, too bad you can't learn Bounce, Barfie. Good thing you're made of cotton, so I can just pick you up and throw you— oof, what do you mean, you're a real Zigzagoon?!

Not to worry! These are the muscles that will make the future bright! I'm going to throw your somewhat weighty self up at the ceiling, and you can try Headbutting it, okay?

The shrub waves its branches back and forth in anticipation, waiting to lash out against you again. The two of you circle it slowly, careful not to get too close.

Then you give the signal. CateGory slaps the shrub across one of its branches.

"What the... You slapped me!" the shrub squeals. "How dare you! Why I've never - "

While the shrub is distracted, you quickly reach into the pot and grab two pieces of Candy Cornn. Just as you pull your hand back, a thorny branch comes swishing past, but you avoid it narrowly and make a hasty retreat, with CateGory hot on your heels.

You and Bun Two make your way up the rickety stairs and approach the paintings on the far wall. Across the room, you see Meursault and their Haunter studying the leftmost painting, as though it were a puzzle of some kind. A puzzle... This inspires you to use brute force! You gesture for Bun Two to attack the wall. She starts pounding on it while you shout incoherently, causing the room to shake and bits of plaster to fall from the ceiling.

After only a few moments of pounding, the wall gives in with a groan, stirring up a cloud of dust and leaving a gaping hole through which you can see the Bedroom Hallway.

You reach into the wall cavity and find one piece of Candy Cornn. Not exactly how you expected this to play out, but oh well!

You stand uncomfortably in the doorway while Delve explores. Thick cobwebs hang from the ceiling and dust covers the floor, but you can tell from the footprints that people have been here recently. The murky light that filters in through the windows makes it hard to see, but you can make out a pair of paintings hanging on the far wall of the second floor. Delve floats toward them and beckons for you to follow. You make your way up the stairs; they creak ominously with every step.

You look at the leftmost painting first. It depicts a moonlit castle with bats flying out of it - it's actually kind of tacky. But in the foreground, someone has painted a piece of Candy Cornn!

The rightmost painting is completely identical to the first one, but instead of Candy Cornn, someone has drawn a piece of salty licorice on it. Gross.
bah. to the library!

Hmm... there's still a pile of boxes in the southwest corner of the room. Since opening them individually would be boring... a fucking whale, could you use Rollout and bowl straight into the pile of boxes?

Pedri marches up to the marble statue with a scowl on his face.

"Oi!" He knocks on the statue twice. Nothing happens. Unimpressed, Pedri bares his pumpkin teeth and snarls viciously. "I know you're in there!" He grabs the statue and rocks it back and forth.

"Alright, alright, geez! Calm down!" the statue says. "Whaddya want?"

Pedri crosses his arms. "Oh, I just figured, since we're apparently giving away stuff for free now, that I'd stop by and grab some off of you."

"Oh. You saw that, did you." The statue coughs and scratches the back of its head. "Look, it gets lonely in here, and - "

"I don't wanna hear it!" Pedri says. "Just give it here."

"But - "

"That's an order."

The statue squirms relucantly, but finally gives up one piece of Candy Cornn. Pedri hands it to you with a wink.

"Wait a minute, who's that human?" the statue says. "Hang on, why am I taking orders from - "

But before it can finish, the two of you have already made off and are now hiding behind the staircase, well out of sight.
Alright, next let's try Digging up that brownish spot in the lower-right corner! No way this can go wrong, right?

Well, if there was candy cornn in one of the shrubberies, there's bound to be some in the other also. Let's use Thief to see if we can't get ourselves some of it.
