The map did say ghost town. But somehow, I thought it was just a really small town. I glanced at the map again before I went in. Ah, Ghost Town. Oops, it’s little things like that that get you killed – repeatedly.
Being a ghost hunter is not all that easy. You have make sure you have all that you need, you forget one little thing and you’re toast. A misread is defiantly one of those little things. So I don’t have everything I need. The smaller ghosts are no problem, they are not that strong. They are also easier to see – they let off a faint glow. With some great timing and a handful of pre-emptive strikes I can vanquish them without dipping into my limited, so limited, supplies.
The bigger ones are a lot trickier, I need more than great timing. I check my supplies as I hit the halfway mark and if I’m really, really crazily lucky, there will only be two large ghosts – it’s all I can handle right now. But I’m only half way and I’ve already killed seven. Everyone knows the second half is harder. Maybe I can just run through the town and get out the other side. But then I won’t be paid. People only pay once you’ve finished the mission. I also can’t level without clearing the town. I see my own death before me.
I really need an item shop.
