Haunted House Plot Generator

Halloween is approaching! That means it’s the time when neurotypicals and algorithms most appreciate spooky things!

I made this in August.

If you want to write yourself a spooky or spoopy tale this season, or whenever, this is the prompt generator for you!

Answer the following questions based what is actually true or what you want to write about. It will ultimately be up to your audience to decide what is true.

If you would prefer to skip the quiz, there are two potential prompts at the end ready for you to use.

  1. You and your friends are most often described as:
    • assholes.
    • basketball players.
    • hormonal miscreants.
    • party animals.
    • stoners.
  2. Your favorite pet from this list is a:
    • cat.
    • dog.
    • fish.
    • rat.
    • rock.
    • snake.
    • succulent.
  3. Oh dear. You forgot to buy your costume until the last minute. There’s only one costume left, and it’s this one:
    • catgirl.
    • chainsaw killer.
    • demon.
    • dinosaur.
    • ghost.
    • gorgon.
    • mummy.
    • puppeteer.
    • slime monster.
    • vampire.
    • werewolf.
    • witch.
  4. The most comforting item on this list, to you, is a:
    • book.
    • comb.
    • flower.
    • gem.
    • hairbrush.
    • mirror.
    • necklace.
    • ring.
    • toy.
  5. The worst room in your most recent residence was the:
    • attic.
    • basement.
    • bathroom.
    • bedroom.
    • dining room.
    • kitchen.
    • laundry room.
    • library.
    • living room.
    • study.

Once you have answered the questions, your prompt is calculated thusly. The numbers refer to your answer from the corresponding question.

A group of 1 and their 2 are out trick-or-treating, but they have made the classic Halloween blunder.  They have called upon a house haunted by a 3!  In order to escape, they must find a 4 in the 5 by midnight.  Will they prevail? Or perish???

Here are two premade prompts for those who skipped the quiz.

  • A group of stoners and their snake are out trick-or-treating, but they have made the classic Halloween blunder. They have called upon a house haunted by a catgirl! In order to escape, they must find a hairbrush in the bathroom by midnight. Will they prevail? Or perish???
  • A group of assholes and their succulent are out trick-or-treating, but they have made a the classic Halloween blunder. They have called upon a house haunted by a puppeteer! In order to escape, they must find a mirror in the attic by midnight. Will they prevail? Or perish???

My prompts are dedicated to my patreon backers: Fatima Ane and Octolich.

If you’d like your name to be included among them next month, head on over to my patreon! All patrons, at any donation level, will be included in the prompt dedications. Once I get enough patrons, I plan on polling them about what theme they’d like a set of prompts to be.
