Introduction




Well Halloween is around the corner and to get myself into the mood I decided to dust off an old favorite of mine, Monolith's Blood. Since I've been looking for a game to LP I thought this one would be as good as any.

For those that don't know, Blood is a 2D/3D FPS made by Monolith that used the Build engine, the same as Duke 3D. Like Duke it features over the top violence and stolen Bruce Campbell one liners.

The LP type will be Video with subtitles.

Why subtitles? Because I'm no stand up comedian and I'm pretty sure no one wants to hear me talking over Caleb's one-liners and Blood's sweet music and sound effects.

Anyway lets get this show on the road.
In an age and a region renowned for cruelty and violence, Caleb was
legendary. Born in western Texas in 1847, he had sealed a reputation as
a merciless gunfighter by the age of 17. But it was seven years later
when he met Ophelia Price that his hunger for bloodshed took on a
menacing new timbre.

She was already well beyond the bounds of sanity when he found her
cowering in the charred ruins of the burned out homestead where her
husband and child had perished only days before. It was neither her
tattered beauty nor her plight that compelled Caleb to take her in,
however-it was the words he picked out of her virtually incoherent
mumblings.

He learned that her husband had attempted to rescind his membership of
the dreaded Cult of Tchernobog and in return cultists had set fire to
the house in the night. Ophelia was filled with rage-not at the cult but
at her husband, whose cowardice she blamed for the death of her young
son.

Ophelia was Caleb's doorway to the Cult and its dark purpose. He could
not have known that in time he would come to love her, not that their
service to the Cult would find the two of them beloved among the Chosen,
elite servants of the dreaming god Tchernobog, the One That Binds,
Devourer of Souls.

In the Hall of the Epiphany, a temple that spans the chasm between the
worlds, the four remaining Chosen stand that the forefront of a procession
of worshipers. Tchernobog's presence is felt more than seen-the great,
frigid weight of a hunger that spans millennia. He speaks in a cacophony
of voices stolen from the dead, summoning the Chosen to the center of the
sacrificial ring. They stand before the Dark God, united by a sudden,
inexplicable sense of doom.

A wordless cry rises up from the seething shadows, one voice swallowed up
by many until the hall resounds with them. The members of the procession
behind the Chosen melt away in a gust of ethereal wind, extinguished like
so many candle flames. There aren't even ashes to indicate they ever
existed.

The Chosen look to one another in confusion and dread. They can already
feel the ties that bind them to Tchernobog fraying. Why? How have we failed
you?

But there is no answer other than the shattering scream that threatens to
tear the universe to shreds. Darkness swells around them, swallows them.
Their cold, abandoned souls fall through the abyss.

And they burn.

Caleb awakens in cold and damp in a body he no longer knows. It has long
lain as a corpse that refused to rot, protected from putrefaction by some
unearthly link to its master. The pain of protesting muscle and flesh
invigorates and awakens him. He welcomes it. It distills his hate into
the maelstrom raging in the center of his mind.

An agonizing cry breaks out of him, shattering the stone lid of the tomb
in which he lies, knocking loose sediment, cobwebs, and the small,
unnoticed creatures that have shared his grave with him. A single word
rings out through the darkness, echoing Tchernobog's lingering howl: "Why?"

Enjoy.
