The House of Poe

Suggested Price $2.50

A creepy horror adventure for Characters of Level 5-6.

Deep in the swamp, villagers claim something unnatural is happening at a large manor on the edge of town. A suspicious owner whose wife died years ago is attempting something dark and terrible, and it's up to the party to stop him. The true fun of this adventure lies in the house itself, which is filled with hidden references and homages to the works of Edgar Allan Poe, with the author himself filling the role as the suspicious home owner.

Ran as a very fun Halloween one shot (it’s great with the Syrinscape Deserted Desert House and Witchwood soundsets). Excellent self-contained adventure, but could easily fit into an ongoing campaign, too. Very well done!

Used this for last year's Halloween, my group LOVED it, utterly LOVED IT. It is one of the best modules I have played. Now off to find a Lovecraft one.

I like the look of this! I plan on running it for Halloween.

Question on the maps: what's the tiny little room/rug thing in the bottom right hand corner of the top and bottom floors? It looks like it might be a trap door or window or something, but it isn't something that's described in the PDF.

Those are stairs leading from where the servants live to get quick access to the kitchen area. Sorry if that wasn't clear!

Will come back and properly purchase when I get paid. As a Poe fanboy, I am so excited to run this module.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
