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 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 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 21

We’re down to the last ten days of this challenge and the dice just keep rolling… Today we’re back visiting Little Spaces: Gruesome Graves for some ideas. A few die rolls give us: Sense(s): Taste, Touch, Smell Descriptive element: Stone Sense descriptor(s): Broken, Uneasy, Rough Current state: New grave being dug And that leads to……

31 Days of Halloween, Day 16

For some reason today’s vignette hit me from an odd angle. I used Little Spaces: Fancy Meals to see if I could take a meal-related description and twist it to something Halloween-ish and by George I did just that. It even came out in a kid-friendly way so if you’re looking to run an adventure for…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 15

Almost halfway through the month and still going strong… Today we use Little Spaces: Dinner Guests and with a few die rolls came up with the following elements: Gender: Undecided/Undetermined Sense: Touch Descriptive element: Business owner Sense descriptor: Cold And I used the Tavern, Inn, and Pub Name Generator (Mithril and Mages) –  to generate a…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 14

As long as I’ve been playing RPGs, the tavern has been the center of more plots than I am willing to admit. What is it about having a PC drinking a good ale and hearing a good story that leads so quickly to adventure? Today’s vignette comes from Little Spaces: Tavern Trouble, but spun in…

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…
