Entering the Crypt (a 31 Days of Halloween follow-up)

(Inspired by the crypt on the ground floor map in the Heroic Maps’ product Haunted Mansion) [Portion of the transcript of an interview with Marcus Grevit, property owner of the old Duvard property. He reported an attack by an unknown assailant while exploring his new purchase and came to the police station to report the…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 31

Today we focus on the last room on the first floor of the Haunted Mansion (Heroic Maps) (don’t worry – there’s a lovely little crypt on the property we’ll deal with separately next week). This room appears to be the study, complete with bookcases, a desk, chair, chest, and another fancy carpet. From what I’ve…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 29

With only 3 days left in the challenge, we’re down to 3 rooms (my count was off yesterday) on the first floor of the Haunted Mansion from Heroic Maps. Today’s room is on the front of the house and holds some intriguing clues to its part in the story. With two doors, one from the…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 25

As we continue working our way through the┬áHaunted Mansion map from the folks at Heroic Maps, today we find ourselves in a wholly unremarkable room, passing through the door on the north wall (the wall to the left of the fireplace). It may be a simple corridor or a place for some storage, but whatever…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 23

Last time we described the front door of the Haunted Mansion map from the folks at Heroic Maps. What do you say we walk into the foyer to see what else we can find? Taking a close look at the map, there a number of things in the room we can use… A large vase…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 22

Today we’re going to do something a little different… When I saw the announcement for a gorgeous Haunted Mansion map from the folks at Heroic Maps show up in my e-mail box, I knew it served a perfect opportunity to bring a number of things together… First, I love the work the Heroic Maps folks…
