Halloween Rules

With Halloween upon us, it is worthwhile to remember a few
simple rules to help keep this season healthy, happy and SAFE!!
Please use these helpful hints this and every year.

1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER
   check to see if it's really dead.

2. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.

3. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out.

4. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which 
   they should not know, shoot them immediately.  It will save you a 
   lot of grief in the long run. However, it will probably take 
   several rounds to kill them, so be prepared.  This also applies to 
   kids who speak with somebody else's voice.

5. When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER go off alone.

6. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell.

7. Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt.
   This would apply to any other house of the dead as well.

8. If you're searching for something which caused a loud
   noise and find out that it's just the cat, GET THE HELL OUT!

9. If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check
   for short circuits; just get out.

10. Do not take ANYTHING from the dead.

11. If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a
    good reason for it. Don't stop and look around.

12. Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're
    sure you know what you're doing.

13. If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall 
    down at least twice, more if you are female. Also note that, 
    despite the fact that you are running and the monster is 
    merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to
    catch up with you.

14. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic 
    behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, 
    increasing hairiness, and so on, kill them immediately.

15. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of
    which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania,
    Nilbog (you're in trouble if you recognize this one),
    anywhere in Texas where chainsaws are sold, the Bermuda
    Triangle, or any small town in Maine.

16. If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road, do not 
    go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help. If 
    you think that it is strange you ran out of gas because you 
    thought you had most of a tank, shoot yourself instead. You 
    are going to die anyway, and most likely be eaten.

17. Beware of strangers bearing tools. For example: chainsaws, 
    staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, 
    lawnmowers, butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any 
    devices made from deceased companions.

18. If you find that your house is built upon a cemetery, now is 
    the time to move in with the in-laws. This also applies to 
    houses that had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed 
    suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or had inhabitants 
    who performed satanic practices.

19. Dress appropriately. When investigating a noise downstairs in 
    an old house, women should not wear a flimsy negligee. And 
    carry a flashlight, not a candle.

20. Do not mention the names of demons around open flames, as these 
    can flare suddenly. Be especially careful of fireplaces in this 

22. Do not go looking for witches in the Maryland countryside.
