The structural behemoth of Castle FM, the chosen venue for this year’s Monsters Brawl, loomed over the courtyard below. October had arrived, and with it THE FM MONSTERS BRAWL! The Brawl pits the world’s greatest monsters against one another in a March Madness-style bracket (and YOU vote on who emerges the ultimate victor!).
The Castle’s penthouse balcony was brimming with various VIP guests, each sipping from glasses of the finest Transylvanian wines as they watched the roiling masses below. Humans and demons, otherworldly creatures and multi-dimensional beings… all were grouped together in a rag-tag mob as they eagerly awaited the festivities. And they didn’t have to wait long.
Floodlights burst on, signaling game time (and blinding some of the more nocturnal spectators). A hush fell over the crowd, a relief to the event’s security officers — with Monsters, Heroes of Horror, Colossal Kaiju, Femme Fatales, and Supers allowed in the tournament this year, even the doubled security detail was hard-pressed to manage the volatile crowd of polarized fans.
The (figurative) spell of silence was broken as the sky came alive with fireworks, sparking shouts of excitement from the crowd. A pyrotechnics display that would have made Godzilla cringe burst to life at the center of the courtyard, effectively pushing everyone back to make room for the main event.
As the fiery display reached its grand finale, the ground — actually a massive, cleverly disguised trapdoor – cracked apart and retracted to reveal the bright ropes and mats of a massive battle arena suspended above a bubbling pit of lava. The crowd roared. IT IS TIME!
