9:40 P.M.

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

You follow the policeman out of Veronica's office, into the upstairs hall.  Red Sonja is there with another cop, and a third policeman escorts the Slime Man out of an office across the hall.

There is a sudden commotion as paramedics and policemen emerge from the master bedroom, carrying a body on a stretcher. The face is covered with a sheet.

The paramedics carry the corpse down the stairs, then the policemen urge you to follow them.

You descend into the front hall and see the corpse being loaded into a waiting ambulance, which quickly speeds away. The policemen usher you, Red Sonja and the Slime Man 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 one story up, and there is a door in the north wall on the second floor.

The Sexy Vampire is sitting in the corner with her head in her hands.

After a moment, a man dressed from head to toe in meat is brought into the room, followed a short time later by a man dressed like the Leather Guy from the Village People, a Cat Woman, and a black guy you recognize as rap sensation Icy Hot. Behind them come three people who are dripping wet and wrapped in towels: a blonde woman in the remains of a Little Red Riding Hood costume, a bare-chested Viking, and Governor Asher.

Next comes the man dressed like a James Bond villain, the Grim Reaper, the Marine and a Sheik, followed by an Indian Chief, 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.
