RE: Teamnesia: A community-wide effort

And it's still entirely possible to get scares from maps, even after mapping for a while. The trick is to have the map scare you in ways you haven't thought of, or in ways you don't expect.

- Everyone expects the monster to show up as soon as you pick up a key or a piece of the puzzle or enter an important area, or open a door.
- Everyone expects the monster to show up right on the other side of the door, or right behind you, or just far enough away to give you plenty of time to hide, or right on top of you (the lamest way).
- Few people expect the monster to show up on a random timer, or in a random location (out of several possibilities), and even fewer people expect the monster to be assigned a random patrol route (and if they do expect it, it's damn difficult to predict and avoid).
- Fewer still expect a monster to show up in an inaccessible location (e.g. behind a locked door for which there is no key). This method is doubly effective if you can cause something to make noise outside the player's control (for example, their leaving a door open for too long triggers a gust of wind at a random interval that knocks over a perilously-balanced book or other object, alerting the monster and causing him to "investigate" by smashing down the door and beginning a patrol route - bonus points if the gust of wind knocks over something the player themselves erected shortly before).
