Count's Reclaim

Posted on October 24, 2020 by Count Erclaim

Greetings Toons, for it is I;
A vampire most cunning and sly.
Surely you didn’t think I had crashed and burned?

I’ve awoken from my slumber with an appetite. 
My return gave that bothersome hound quite the fright! 
He tried to bring me to my defeat. 
But I flew away with some ‘Chup for a treat!
Tonight I shall move into my humble home.
If you happen to find me, do not enter alone. 
Though knowing you naive, foolish Toons,
I suppose I shall be seeing you very soon. 
Be warned, this immortal being puts up quite the fight! 
Shall you best me, you’ll get rewards to your delight!
But now I’m afraid this is where I say goodbye.
I’ve got furniture to unpack under the moonlit sky.

...and so he flew off...
I can’t believe I let that blasted vampire get away again! Why, if I had a penny for every time I- Oh. Uh, ahaha, I didn’t see you there.

In case you couldn’t tell, I’m not in the Halloween spirit this year. But uh, don’t worry about it. Why don’t you just go, I dunno, Trick-Or-Treating? I heard the shopkeepers made some uh, riddles. Or, uh, you could always make a Halloween costume? Or… Alright, you wanna know what’s been troubling me? That no-good Count Erclaim is back! Just when I thought I could get a nice, well-earned break, he waltzes into my house, and makes a bee-line right for my refrigerator. Jellybeans don’t grow on trees, y’know?

Ugh! Just when I thought he was gone for good! What am I supposed to tell Lord Lowden Clear when scared trick-or-treaters run to Toon Headquarters freaking out over a robot vampire? I already failed to protect everyone from the Lawbots, and now I’ve failed to stop that rotten vampire!! Look, I’ll be honest, I can’t do this on my own.

I need you to find Count Erclaim and take him down! Heck, maybe he’ll have some shkrafting materials in his office. You can make costumes out of them for Trick-or-Treating if that’s your sorta thing.  I’ll even throw in some merit and gag multipliers to sweeten the deal. I can’t thank you enough for your help, Toons!
