Through The Attic Door

Spring Day Show
Join the colourful cast of Hotel Elsewhere as we celebrate another incredible day! Every year the residents and guests of the Hotel scramble to win the annual scavenger hunt for the first flower to sprout up, the mythical Delium. The lucky person or duo to find the flower is crowned as Hotel Royalty until the next spring day, and even though it's only a ceremonial title, The Scientist and Brian the Robot are determined to finally win. Unfortunately, The Demon and the Gremlin are less passionate about Hotel traditions and are instead attempting to put on the show of a lifetime, chockfull of magic tricks, standup comedy and some misguided knife juggling. Celebrate the changing season with this extended adventure about friendship, renewal and tap dance!

The Forgotten City
Following the advice of Famulus, the Attic Gang take the elevator down to the garage home of the Wandering Wizards, seeking their advice and hoping to recover the next congress artefact. They also happen to have the final of their favourite checkout themed gameshow to catch, and are desperate to get back to the attic in time to avoid spoilers. Unfortunately, The Wizards are hardly known for being concise, and it seems that Galafor has an illuminating tale to tell... if only he can seem to remember it.

Fool's Gold
After making their way through the less-than-abandoned city, the Attic Gang find themselves at a loss as to where to go next. With a grand total of 4 hours of sleep between them (excluding Brian the Robot's healthy eight hours) the gang set off to find an old hermit with a tale that might just help them pinpoint the location of the magical ring. Will The Scientist, Brian the Robot, The Gremlin and The Demon really be able to lift the curse, find the artefact and get back to the attic in time for coffee and bagels? With the help of Indigo Blastwind and a snivelling newcomer, it might be possible... as long as there are no undead guards looking to lure them to a watery grave...

Back to the Ship!
Finding themselves trapped in the inescapable grasp of contract law, Scientist, Gremlin, Demon and Brian the Robot have embarked on a long voyage across the Crescent Sea to find an ancient sunken city and recover the enchanted ring of Nelius the Baron, a founder of the mythical Congress of Warlocks. To reach the city, all they have to do is cross through deadly storms, fend off any passing sea monsters and sail the ship into a giant oxygen bubble at the exact right second in order to be pushed to the bottom of the ocean without drowning. With the power of the Hotel Management always looming over them, there's no turning back for the Attic Gang and their friends...

Though the Attic Gang and the Adventure Twins may have arrived at the wizard's tower... their journey is far from over. Who knows what deadly traps, ancient mysteries and treacherous secrets will be revealed as they ascend to the highest peak of the ruined city in search of the fabled snowglobe.

Why Did The Attic Gang Cross The City?
With the help of the intrepid Adventure Twins, the Attic Gang find themselves having to traverse yet another dire situation. The snowglobe that the Management has tasked them with collecting is in the old wizard's tower... which just happens to be on the other side of the lost city of Tezzaria. Will the newly formed party of six be able to best skeletons, sandstorms and swimming pools in order to get to the other side, or will they just end up as sandy, sandy toast... and what in the world is Stanley up to in the attic?

Too Much to Manage
Upon his return from the Hotel Elsewhere infirmary, the Gremlin has a grave warning for the rest of the Attic Gang. The elusive Management are finally here, and as the dark prescence of their power casts a shadow across the room, The Scientist must make good on his debt. Can The Scientist, Brian the Robot, The Gremlin and The Demon manage to find their way into the lost city of Tezzaria and complete the task they have been assigned, or will they be mercilessly evicted from their attic home?

Tales From the Attic Door
The Scientist and Brian the Robot are no strangers to danger, but something seems to have them more on edge than ever. As a confused Demon and Gremlin wonder what has the duo so terrified, they learn about a new Hotel Elsewhere tradition, the famous Spooky Day. Unfortunately, what is designed as a day of light-hearted revelry and eerie entertainment never seems to work out for Brian and The Scientist and it has led them to believe that they may, in fact, be suffering from some kind of Spooky Day curse. Will they be able to stay safe with a film and a hotty choccy choc, or could this be their most terrifying year yet? Join Hotel Elsewhere for a double-length Spooky Special featuring four intertwined tales that follow the Attic Gang's  individual adventures...

The Evilympics
Whilst trying to sit through yet another of the Scientist's dreadfully dull ponerology lessons, the Demon comes to a sudden epiphany... maybe the Scientist isn't the best suited to teach the gang how to embrace their evil ways. In the underworld, there is a dedicated competition devoted to figuring out who is the most nefarious being... a competition called the evilympics. Dragged into the fray alongside the Wandering Wizards, the Mice and a group of bonafide supervillains, will the Attic Gang be able to hold their own and prove how evil they truly are? The Scientist seems reluctant, the Gremlin seems bloodthirsty and Brian the Robot seems like they have something they need to say...

Diggin' Up the Past
After hearing a mysterious sea-shanty from his buccaneer associates, the Gremlin has managed to rope the Demon into a ludicrous, and potentially lucrative, hunt for ancient pirate treasure... and ancient pirate hats. Meanwhile, the Scientist has bigger problems to deal with. His old flame, Nick the Archaeologist, has come for a short stay in the Hotel, and requires some scientific assistance. However, when he asks Brian for help over the Scientist, old problems and ancient artefacts begin to resurface.

A Lukewarm Reception
With the newly formed Attic Gang stuck trying to teach the demon how to be evil, The Scientist sets to work trying to impart the knowledge of ponerology. Neither Brian nor The Gremlin is happy with this arrangement, but before they have the time to protest too much, an incoming call from the modified radio presents the Gang with their greatest and most terrifying challenge yet. Looking after the front desk...

The Advanced Rules of Objection!
With The Demon in the attic, it appears that the writing is on the wall for Albert Ackintosh! The last hope for the doomed Scientist is if the attic gang can prove his soul is more good than it is evil. With Brian The Robot proceeding as the judge, the radio on hand for testimonies, and The Gremlin as the defence attorney, it's going to take a small miracle to get The Scientist off scot-free and safe from eternal damnation...

Systematic Smiley Faces
After receiving the most terrifying broadcast of their attic-dwelling lives and finally recovering the whiteboard, the gang are desperate to find out just what is going on! Fortunately the Scientist has a flawless system of smiley faces to help identify who in the hotel could be responsible. What could possibly go wrong...

Day 14: The Whiteboard Hunt Continues
Following the mysterious and rather ominous technical faults emanating from the radiotelephonic device, Brian the Robot, The Scientist and The Gremlin delve into the the Attic's old and misused storage cupboard in search of a whiteboard to jot their ideas down upon. What awaits them is endless hours of searching, trips down memory lane, a heartfelt song and perhaps if they are lucky, they might even figure out a few clues along the way...

Emergency Broadcast!
SOS! Mayday! Emergency! At long last Hotel Elsewhere's resident attic-dwelling mad scientist has managed to get his radio to work. Just in time too, because he is convinced that the shadowy Hotel Management are after him... for some reason. Along with his robotic companion Brian, will he be able to discover the management's evil plan? Will they escape in time? Will they manage to get the radio stabilized and stop it from picking up random frequencies from other Hotel guests? It doesn't seem likely...
