Nurr checked her watch one more time. Yes, it was almost here! After all the planning, she was finally going to see the fruit of her labor as her guests arrived and had the best Halloween ever! It was sheer luck that she was able to find this sweet little home in the country to hold everyone. Who would've thought that someone would think to build guest rooms in their house? Such a stroke of luck for her!

She made sure the welcome table was ready. Ah yes, there it was - the map of the house. A rough one, but really, she had had so much to do! I'm sure the guests will be able to figure out the nuances on their own, she thought. After all, who doesn't love exploring?.
(let's zoom in on that map, shall we?)
1st Floor

2nd Floor

"Oh bother, I forgot about the attic and basement. Ah well, they can find those, right? Just follow the stairs," Nurr mused. "It'll be fine..."

Oh! Guest List! She ran through it one more time, then made another note of the schedule. When her lovely co-host Taurquende arrived, they'd do one final check of the schedule to make sure the guests had fun!

Schedule
22nd - Arrival
23rd - Exploring the house
24th - Games in the game room
25th - Pumpkin carving
26th - Autumn photographs
27th - Bonfire night
28th - Accusation #1
29th - Costume planning
30th - Dessert feast
31st - Final accusation and murderer revealed

The Headless Horseman looked down at his in vitation card

"Dear Algie

Please find enclosesd your invitation to attend our annual Hallowfest event. We hope you will find the time to attend. We have rented out a particularly beautiful location this year which we are sure will be the most perfect place to have our party. Please feel free to bring Eliza, we found a stable area which we think she will just love. Here are the directions to the house. Look forward to seeing you at about 8pm?

x Nurr and Taur"


"Hmm" said the Horseman as he looked upon the lovely country home in front of him. "Very nice indeed" he said as he patted Eliza on the neck. "Charming isn't it, Eliza absolutely charming". They trotted up the long winding drive, past the tall oak trees, until the house came nearer into view. It was night, as the invitation had stated, but the house looked so inviting and warm with all the lights lit.

He dismounted from Eliza at the front door, and passed her reigns through the porch railings. His boots clipped clapped on the woode n stairs, and he went towards the large door.

"BOOM BOOM" went the door knocker, and the door opened with a creak and a groan.

"Hello?" called the Horseman as he stepped inside and looked around.

"Hmm" he said to himself. "I wonder if I am the first one here?".

It was the HallowFest yet again. And for once, Moriel was early this year. She often arrived late for what ever reason. How many had been to now? Four? Or perhaps five? One thing she did know, the HallowFest was not your typical Halloween party. Oh no, it was certainly not. She wondered what events would take place this year. Besides murder and mayhem.

This year, the HallowFest was at a large country house. Moriel thought this an interesting location. Country homes always seem peaceful and calm. Certainly not a choice she'd have in mind. Arriving at dusk, she stepped out a fancy horse-drawn carriage. She was dressed in a fine black velvet gown, trimmed with silver lace.

Moriel lifted her skirts as made her way up the front steps to the house. There, she saw the Headless Horseman at the door. He knocked on the door and called out. He was always the first to arrive at the HallowFest. If he was the only one here, then she was most certainly early.

"Good evening, Sir Horseman," Moriel greeted as she climbed the steps. "It is a pleasure to see you once again."

"IIIEEEEEEEEHHHH"

A wild screech echoed in the night sky and something with a lot of feather, fur and sparkles had launched herself from the hallway of the country house towards the Horseman, who appeared in the doorway of the main doors.

Only a few moments before she would actually land on top of the Horseman, the sparkly, furry and with feathers covered person seemed to have changed her mind and stopped in midway.

"Ahem.. Moriel.. Mr. Horseman.. Algie.. What lovely to see you both.."

A red blush crept up Sparkle's sparkly cheeks and she quickly wanted to divert the attention from her awkward behaviour.

"Come in! I just arrived before you -before the Horseman at least-. It's such a beautiful house" Sparkle concluded with a sigh.

"It is good to see you as well, Sparkle," Moriel said. "Can you believe it's the HallowFest again already?"

"Thank you," she said, as she slowly made her way in the house. "Yes, I must agree, it is a very lovely house. I cannot wait to see the inside."

Raleigh had been quite pleasantly surprised to find that he'd been granted leave so soon after arriving on the front. That alone would have been enough to lift his spirits, but to find that he'd also been invited to a pleasant country home for a party? Well, that was simply topping.

He hadn't quite managed to get the mud off his uniform, but he hoped no one would mind. He thought he looked rather sharp regardless; it was fine of the Army to supply their officers with such nice things.

There was already a small crowd gathering by the front door, and Raleigh briskly walked up to join them.

"Why hullo there," he said, trying his best to sound polite despite the disturbing realization that one of the guests did not, in fact, have a head. "Lovely evening, isn't it?"

“Come along, Purkoy!” Anne strolled up the driveway towards the front porch, a smile forming on her features as she beheld the lights shining through the windows and the small gathering of people around the doorway. It was a heartening sight after the long walk she’d just had! All the same, a bit of cold weather couldn’t serve to dampen her spirits, nor Purkoy’s. The little dog trotted along cheerfully beside his owner’s swishing black skirts, seeming in every way in the best of moods.

Anne removed her black beret, releasing a mass of rich brunette hair over her shoulders, before peeling off her gloves and stuffing them in her the pocket of her long black trench coat, bounding lithely to catch up with the other arrivals. Purkoy, however, had stopped in his tracks, his eyes as round as saucers. He glanced up at the house and emitted a little, slightly ominous whimper. Indulgently, Anne scooped him up into her arms and carried him with her to meet the crowd of guests.

"Good evening!" she called. "I see a few familiar faces! Happy nearly-Halloween. Oh Purkoy, don't whimper like that." She cuddled the dog close. "He's just a little shy."

Moriel removed her cloak and hung it on a peg in the coat room. Several other guests had begun to arrive now.

"Good evening, Lady Anne," she greeted Anne Boleyn. "It is a pleasure to see you again." Moriel then looked down at the shy animal at Anne's feet and smiled. "What a precious little dog."

Anastasia wrapped her cloak more firmly around her shoulders and stared up at the little house. She pulled out the invitation to make sure that she had come to the right place. "Hallow...fest." she read, frowning slightly at the odd term. Maybe Anastasia was not as up to date on popular culture as she would wish - understandable, considering her line of work - but it seemed bad manners to refuse. "Well, I said I would come and I'm here," she muttered to herself. "Might as well make the best of it."

She walked up to the steps to join the people already gathered in front of the house. "Hello," she said, "I do hope that I'm not too late?"

Feleciano glanced nervously up at the rickety old house. "Late for my first party.. What if they don't like me?" he muttered. "Maybe if Germany was with me I wouldn't have gotten so lost along the way!" Not sure what to do, he played with the strap of the heavy bag on his shoulder, (filled with supplies for pasta, of course) and scratched his leg with his other foot. Finally, he plucked up the courage to at least knock. He reached his shaking hand out towards the large brass handle, but to his surprise, the door swung open, the old bolts creaking, and he jumped back in fright. "Hello??" He shakily called out. From the shadows inside emerged a dark figure with a silken black cloak and... No head???
"G-GERMANYYY!!!"

The sound of singing echoed up the drive as Robin Hood and Little John strode up the path to the house.

"I say, Little John, it's quite spooky." said the fox, stopping and scratching his head under his cap.

"At least we're out of Sherwood for a while, Prince John was getting a little too close for comfort these past few weeks," the bear answered with a smile. "Too bad we couldn't bring Marian with us, she would have loved to have spent time with you." As soon as the words were out of his mouth, John regretted it. Robin got a goofy grin on his face and John had to carry him over his shoulder the rest of the way to the house, plopping him unceremoniously on the front stoop while he rang the doorbell.

Morgana looked up at the small house with relief. She had gotten lost on the way there, and now as the sun was setting, she finally found her destination. She peered at her invitation to make sure she was at the right place, but it was too dark to read. I'm sure this is it.

Noticing the guests talking by the house, she brushed weeds and leaves off her cloak and walked up to join them.
"Hello everyone! Sorry I'm so late! It was rather difficult finding the place." she said. "I hope you don't mind."

"AH!" cried Algie startled by the voice. He turned to see Moriel. "Good evening, you have me quite a fright m'dear" he said with a bow. Chuckling he added "part and parcel of the party though eh, Halloween and such".

The Horseman's attention was caught by the wild screeching sound from the house and before he knew it, a very sparkly person was talking to him. He shifted from one foot to the other as he said " Hello.. er Sparkle" as he... er.... blushed furiously. They had come to close the last Hallowfest and yet had not seen each other since... he felt very awkward.

"Good evening" bowed the Horseman as he noticed a rather impressive looking individual in army dress. "So nice to see you" he added to the other guests as they appeared one after the other. Anne Boleyn, who he knew from the previous year, and a whole host of new guests.... including a talking bear and a fox! "How strange" he mused.

The Horseman proceeded to look at the map that had been left by their hosts. "This is a very extensive house" he called out to no one in particular.

Robin, having recovered from his bout of Marian-induced delirium, padded up next to the headless man. "It is indeed. Not at all like the castle back near Sherwood either. A bit too closed for me though. Give me the woods and open skies any day."

He stuck out his right paw to the horseman, "Robin Hood, at your service."

Little John had come up behind Robin while he was talking and now nodded in the horseman's direction. "Little John. I'm Robin's... minder, as it were. He's been a little odd since the last time he got knocked over the head." He smirked and ignored the glare Robin shot his way, instead turning back to the map. Deciding to leave Robin to his own devices, the bear trundled in the direction of the kitchen. The walk to the house had left him feeling a bit peckish.

The Horseman took the furry paw offered to him and shoot it.

"How do you do" said the Horseman nodding his er...yeah.. at Robin Hood and turning to bow to Little John.

"Yes I can imagine how one might prefer the outdoors to the indoors" he said, he liked both and felt quite at ease with one or the other.

Noticing that Little John had wandered off into what looked like the kitchen, the Horseman thought it might be an idea to see if an evening meal had been prepared in the dining room.

"I think I might just take a peek in the dining room" he said to the other guests. "There may be some warm drinks available".

"I'm surprised there isn't a butler" he said under his breath as he strode towards the dining room door.
