A Night of Fright! 2: The Lich’s Ghost (Fantasy Grounds)

Mystery LLC is back, baby! They’ve arrived in the town of Haven to participate in the yearly harvest festival—only to find a ghostly lich is stealing people! Can our heroes unravel Haven’s secrets before the spectre of Cera Brightmoon totally harshes everyone’s good time?

“It takes incredible skill to pull this off, but Pankotai is a professiognoll who has crafted the perfect adventure for a Halloween one shot, any good ole time and almost certainly a great way to get friends and family into your cult, I. Mean D&D, I mean cult..?”

-Praise from CurseOfSebs

  • Five pre-generated characters, each with their own character sheets and tokens for digital play.

  • Several maps! Maps for explorin’, maps for fightin’, you know, maps.

  • An fully coded module that’s really enjoyable to click around in.

A Night of Fright! 2: The Lich’s Ghost is a parodic one-shot adventure designed to be played over four to six hours. Creepy stuff is going on in Haven, and Mystery LLC is on the case! This is a free-form investigation game where players’ deductive skills will be put to the test. And also it’s really pretty silly: possible encounters include a giant turkey, a man-eating plant, and a particularly aggressive gym membership sales pitch. There are also a lot of references to horror and comedy stuff, as well as a few cameos by fan-favorite characters!

This game is balanced around the Mystery LLC pre-generated characters. It can be played with a different amount of people or with other characters, but Mystery LLC is a finely tuned mystery machine (wink) so you may need to putz around with difficulty checks a bit.

This adventure’s PDF is interactive and designed by best-selling layout artist Anne Gregersen! A bunch of stuff can be clicked to take you to other stuff, and it’s really very pretty. Jinkies, just look at these sample pages!

This adventure is designed to be more fun and loose than a traditional D&D experience. This is playing as mystery-solving teens using the D&D engine. There’s a few cutscenes and all the “rules” of D&D design aren’t always followed. But it is very enjoyable, at least according to all my friends who tested it with me, and it has some cool fights for those people who enjoy being a D&D hero.

While this game is a sequel, you do not need to have played the first game. At all. Really, they’re totally independent games. But when your friends play one, they’re gonna want to play the other one. You can check out the first game right here!
