31 Days of Halloween, Day 10

Welcome to the next in this series of Halloween-themed vignettes. Each offers a glimpse into some of the darker corners of my brain, while using Moebius Adventures products to prod my muse a bit. It’s been quite an interesting journey, I must say. Today’s entry comes from Little Spaces: Shipwrecks. (Though you wouldn’t think that…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 9

As I continue into the depths of October, it’s hard to believe we’re almost 1/3 of the way through the month already on this mad quest of writing. Each vignette comes from just a few key words and a little context, and I have to say the things my brain tosses out sometimes disturb even…

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…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 7

One more strange day of writing for Halloween… This time we entered the basement of a serial killer courtesy of Little Spaces: Scary Basements. And I have to admit that I was a little disturbed when I figured out what was in the jars my muse suggested based on the terms Taste, Glass, and Lumpy… It…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 6

As we continue the journey through October, things have become more and more gruesome. Today’s vignette came from Little Spaces: Gruesome Graves and involves Taste, Ceremony, Moldy, and Desecration… Even as you watch from the shadows, you see four humanoid shapes at the four cardinal directions standing on the edge of an open grave. Each…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 5

Day 5 already? Wow. How time flies! Here’s today’s vignette, inspired by Little Spaces: Horrid Hallways. This is more of a straight-up horror plot, though it could be twisted easily into an Urban Fantasy, Dresden Files-style adventure. Rolling some virtual dice I ended up with two senses – Smell & Touch, the descriptive element of Neighbor, and…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 4

Here we are at day 4 of my Halloween-themed challenge. Each day, I have been writing up a little vignette that can be used for your horror- or mystery-themed gaming session. Today it was generated using the Little Spaces: Burial Mounds product, which uses a slightly different (more Insta-NPCs-ish) approach with a collection of tables…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 3

Here we are at day 3 of my Halloween-themed challenge. Each day, I will write up a little vignette that can be used for your horror- or mystery-themed gaming session. This time it even seems a bit Doctor Who inspired, so it might fit into a modern or science fiction context or even a fantasy…
