9:40 P.M.

"The End" by the Doors emanates ominously from the ballroom.

You cooperate and climb up the ladder back to the hedge maze, then follow the policeman through the back yard and around to the front door of the mansion, where an ambulance is waiting. Paramedics emerge from the house, carrying a body on a stretcher. The face is covered with a sheet.

The body is loaded into the ambulance, which proceeds to speed off down the driveway. The policeman leads you into the front hall and through a door in the west wall.

You step into a large, two-story library, filled with comfortable, leather-bound furniture. Ladders on rollers are positioned around the room, giving access to the high walls of books. A narrow catwalk runs along the perimeter, on the second floor, and there is a door in the north wall on the second floor.

A Sexy Vampire is sitting in the corner with her head in her hands. Brother Doofus is standing in the middle of the room with a woman dressed as Red Sonja and another woman who is dressed as Cleopatra.

After a moment, Brother Nitrous, Bernadette (the cat woman), and Icy Hot are lead into the room.. Behind them come three people who are dripping wet and wrapped in towels: Amanda (Little Red Riding Hood), Gus (the Viking), and Governor Asher.

Next comes Brother Sputum, the Grim Reaper, Brother Foooz and the Sheik, followed by Brother Puris, the Big Bad Wolf and Mike Wellman, who looks like he's been crying.

After that, the policemen all step out of the room, closing the doors behind them.
