This is Halloween
« on: September 29, 2018, 12:17:07 AM »
My first ever date (sort of) was to the movie The Nightmare before Christmas, and while things never worked out with the girl in question, to this day it is still my favorite holiday movie of all time, for any holiday.  This lock is inspired by that movie, but is most definitely not a Locktober lock.

It's been 25 years since Christmas was almost ruined by Jack Skelington, and he and Kringle get along fine now.  In fact, since that year, Santa costumes have appeared scattered around every single Halloween.  While they may be friends, and Kringle lets Jack help with presents for all the little goth children, Jack will never quite be able to stand in and run Christmas, and everyone knows it.  Everyone that is save that villainous bag of serpents, Mr. Oggie Boogie,

Mr. Oggie Boogie has given up on dreams of both replacing the Sandy Claws and taking over Christmas, but he just might be able to take over his rightful place on top of Halloween.

Mr. Oggie Boogie has captured and locked up your source of joy, and is keeping him away from overseeing Christmas prep.  Jack isn't ready, but someone has to do it, that is, unless Kringle can break free.

In this lock, I will be playing the part of Mr. Oggie Boogie.  Whenever I am awake that is, and while evil, I also don't have full understanding of your powers.  When I have to sleep, I will be handing guard duty over to the Oggie Boogie Boys, the three mischievous scamps who love trouble and pranks.

As the king of all winter, your main power is control of frost.  If your captors allow you to get frozen (many in the deck), you can use this to erode your bonds and maybe get free all the sooner.  Mr. Oggie Boogie might bitch and moan, but the snakes in his heart are cold blooded, and can't stick around to fight the cold.

Be warned however that while The Boggie boys guard you, tricks abound around every corner.  They like resets and double ups, and almost every one of their yellow traps will be designed to let them torment you longer.  What's worse, they are just kids, and you couldn't bring yourself to use your frost powers when they might get hurt.  Your best bet is to bide your time and let your power build until it can be used on the true villain.

Get free and let Jack keep Halloween fun and light, not to mention finishing up the work that needs to be done before Christmas.  If not, well maybe you can still be out in time to save your own holiday...maybe.

Anyone interested in this lock should DM me about it with how long a lock you were looking for and how merciless you wanted me to be in running it.  This lock was designed to be extremely variable and I will do my best to match your desires.

I am much more active on Discord, and that is how you are likely to know whether I am awake and monitoring the lock, or if you are in the hands of the Oggie Bogie boys and should probably wait to draw cards.

A+ for creativity, this is quite different and fun.

I think I'm too wimpy to try it, but I really appreciate the creativity.

Thank you, the concept started mostly because I wanted a lock where people were happy to get frozen rather than. Complain about it.

As for not being brave enough, that's fine, it a not for everyone.  That said, it was built to scale down to as little as about 2 day.  As long as the lockee was careful not to pull cards while I'm asleep.

I have my first lockee, I guess I'm actually a Key Holder now...

What I have learned in the last 20 hours is that the lock, and my playing with it, work as anticipated.  I should have called it the too long, didn't read lock because it really is a 2 day lock if you read the full description and keep the clues in mind.  If you don't, it could go literally forever.

TL;DR this is a simple 2 day lock 😈

To whoever loaded this lock...please use a non-generic name so that I know who I'm interacting with.

The same goes for everyone else who wants to load this.
