A downloadable TRPG

Houses & Hauntings Revised Edition is a 2-page dungeon crawl TRPG where you play kids exploring a spooky locale, but a mysterious recluse stalks them...

It's time for kids to meddle!

Eighties kid adventure movie shenanigans abound in a light-hearted role-playing game of exploration and frights! Originally created and playtested for "The Shortening" RPG contest, this version has been heavily revised and updated for better play balance, clarity, and even added GM advice. Includes full rules, six character types, villain creation, treasure table, and it all still fits on one double-sided piece of paper!

A tabletop RPG for 3-5 players. Includes both the 2-page revised edition from 2020 and the original 2-page submission from 2017. Requires some six-sided dice and tokens of your own devising. The Director of the adventure will need to obtain a map and fill it with cool stuff.
