Sometimes the things we like are so obvious, we don’t even think to mention them. This was almost the case for cemeteries, until a fellow blogger reminded us of this obvious pick.
Of course monsters like cemeteries!
Cemeteries are the one place that humans build in the middle of town specifically to avoid visiting. Mostly, all we see are a few daytime mourners and a few tasty nighttime delinquents. Since the advent of indoor shopping malls, nobody power walks in circles around the cemetery anymore.
And cemeteries are inherently creepy. There’s no need for us to spend our hard-earned time and money putting up scary decorations – like skulls on spikes or punch bowls with hands that pop out – in order to set the mood. We’ve got an entire row of dead people that humans just gave us pre-planted. Makes setting up an evil Halloween plot so much easier if you don’t have to worry about decorations on the side.
Plus, cemeteries are a good place to recruit. Beginner monsters often try to prove their worth by resurrecting some kid’s grandpa or raising vampire bats in a crypt. If you can get to them before they really find their stride, you can build up a nice support base for your own apocalyptic missions. At the very least, as long as you don’t pick a dud, you might be able to score a decent evil sidekick.
