Have a COW (Creature of the Week) #10: Memory Drones

This week and next, I’d like to go back to look at how a few drones have appeared in our campaign. First the Memory Drone, and then Rifle Drones. Design Thoughts The concept of the “Glitch” is one that I’ve played with a few times and I debated how it might affect a large ship,…

Holy Knight Home Study Series: Ghosts

Though ghosts are on the lowest end of the threat spectrum of undead creatures and not on the list of choices for favored undead enemies, you may encounter them in your journeys. Ghosts are the spirits of the wrongfully murdered. They assume physical form to gain aid from the living and prolong their time in…

Day 15, The Tinkerer Arrives – 31 Days of Halloween 2015

Turns out that our Tinkerer has amassed a small fortune with his inventions. And when our Techie ran into issues implementing his designs, he decided he’d rent a helicopter to fly out and help. Plus, he just happened to bring a trio of top-of-the-line generators with him. If it worked on Ballard’s ghost, with help…

Day 12, A Little Help – 31 Days of Halloween 2015

We needed help. Scientific help. But more than that we needed tools in this battle with evil spirits. The scientist always spoke of a laboratory and a man with toys. It was where he interned as a young man after college. A genius recluse who shunned humanity for more time to tinker. He was notoriously…

Day 6, The Sleeping Quarters – 31 Days of Halloween

We chased the intern up the stairs and found her deposited in a heap on the top landing. She was pretty badly banged up and unconscious but still breathing. We knew from the plans that this floor had several beds, so we decided to stop here and make sure she was ok to move back…

Day 5, The Basement Stairs: 31 Days of Halloween 2015

Though we should begin to divide and conquer to cover more ground, nobody was prepared to leave the relative safety of the group to…

Day 3, The Electric Chair: 31 Days of Halloween 2015

Our man was singed and confused, but sent home from the local ER within a few hours. We quickly decided we would leave him in the van with the tech guy the following night just to give him a bit more time to recover. He grumbled but eventually admitted it was the smart thing to…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 30

We’re down to the last two days of my 31 Days challenge and the last two rooms of Heroic Maps’ Haunted Mansion (though I’m going to keep going to see what the full story becomes over the next few weeks). Today we go across the hall from the room with the cockeyed table and chairs…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 8

Today we explore a strange place for a haunting… a greenhouse. This came up by using the Big Book of Little Spaces: Haunts and the revised tables for Little Spaces: Ghostly Effects within. The original table for Ghostly Effects was simply 100 different potential odd things you might encounter in a haunted place, but the revision brought…
