Macabre Escape


At the edge of this forlorn place we located an immaculate row home. Once a wealthy family lived there which committed damnable sacrifices. The choking mists forced us inside this sorrowful and malevolent estate. Within we found a life of luxury twisted with unsettling madness. This sentient abode tormented us until we found a way to depart its corrupted halls. The antiquity of the evil in that place seeped into our dreams. After some time we steeled ourselves for those waking night terrors. Unfortunately, the wrathful abode was not done haunting us. As if swallowed by a morbid oubliette, we have returned. I fear our prayers will go unanswered inside the macabre escape tunnel of the Death House…


Macabre Escape is a short adventure which returns the PCs to the Death House. It can also be used as an addition to the original Death House adventure. As a living entity, the Death House revels in the torment of both the living and the dead. It has many secrets still yet discovered, one of which is the original escape tunnel built by the Durst family.

This scenario has enough material for a complete four to six hour game session. Although designed with level 3-4 characters in mind, the Macabre Escape can be tweaked to accommodate higher level groups.

The door is open … What are you afraid of?

Macabre Escape is written by Grand DM, regular RPG blogger at and author of Tales from the Game Tavern and Gonzo Con.

Excellent ideas and encounters to spook players. My players already hated the Death House, so this little trip back was especially fun. I took the suggestion in the dark section to have all of my players keep their eyes closed. It freaked them out! A [...]

This spooked a few people I play with out quite a bit. I'm sure our candlelight and mood music just added to the whole experience. I liked the Gothic feel mixed with supernatural horror. I would NOT run this as written with less then five players. As [...]

This was a bit linear in terms of progression but we are dealing with an escape tunnel. Because of that I gave the adventure a pass. I agree with the others that some of the adversaries are quite nasty for a low level party. The only thing really missi [...]

This is brutal lol. Page eight is my favorite part of the entire adventure. That concept is something I will probably steal for other encounters. What a good little horror trek. [...]

Disclaimer: I have read the entire adventure, but have have not run my group through it yet. Unlike the Death House, there is no down time and the players are dumped right into the action. It seems a bit hard on the surface for the advertised character [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
