Monster Rancher

by Mr. Swoon

Part 1: I got my license!

It's a game where you raise monsters on a ranch. What more do you want from me?

Hey guys! Guess what just came for me in the mail! These FIMBA guys gave me a (possibly) official monster breeding license. All I had to do was fill out a form online and give them my credit card number. Now that I'm all set for a career in monster care, I went ahead and took out a huge loan to buy a ranch plus $3000 for expenses.

I also found a site that gives you assistants. Well, they called them "Brides" but I think that's just industry talk. Her name's Holly.

How do you do? My name is Holly. I just completed my training to become your assistant. I may not have much experience, but I'm-

So anyway, I realized that even though I aced that online quiz about monster breeding, I don't know a dang thing about actually doing it. Since I know goons to be the best resource for information on everything, I figured you guys were the best ones to go to for help.

For starters, I have no clue what monster to make. There's this shrine, see? At the shrine they take monster DNA from special discs and use that to make a monster. These discs are very special and require a lot of care and patience to collect. I don't have time for that, so I grabbed a handful of music CDs from the $2 bin at a nearby pawn shop.

So guys, what disc should I use?

White Zombie - Supersexy Swingin' Sounds

Danko Jones - We Sweat Blood

Radiohead - Kid A

Ol' Dirty Bastard - Nigga Please

Bootsy Collins - Play With Bootsy

Edit: Names too! I forgot I should probably name my monster, if only so people don't think I'm raising it for food.
