WORDY WEDNESDAY #124
THE OMINOUS PENTHOUSE
The fifth floor of this hotel is allegedly haunted by the ghost of a guest who died of mysterious circumstances decades ago. You booked yourself a night’s stay to prove once and for all that there are no such things as ghosts, but shortly after you fall asleep, you find yourself in a foggy cemetery. In front of you is a tombstone with your name and a dozen strange shapes etched into it. “Will you return to the realm of the living?” a ghastly voice echoes. “Or will my puzzle be your worst nightmare? Foolish mortal! If you wish to wake up, you must give me the correct 7-letter answer!”

COMING NEXT WEEK. . .
* What's a 5-letter word for "Philosopher Plantinga"?

Until next time, yappy solving!

I'm at a loss as to how the Penthouse puzzle is supposed to be solved. The example shows a finished puzzle, but not how the answer was determined. Why couldn't the U and L block be two stack P pentominoes instead?
