Haunted - A 5th Edition Ravenloft Sourcebook of Horrific Haunts


Though the world of horror fantasy certainly has ghosts and other ephemeral horrors, they are not the same as the supernatural activity that can encompass a “haunt.” A haunt is a ghostly resonance that can affect a creature that triggers it. Such haunts are very likely to occur in places of death and psychic distress, such as torture chambers, mass graveyards, and battlefields. The nature of each haunt is unique and can cause a milieu of terrible effects, from a scare all the way to death. There are many reasons why a haunt comes into existence. Most of these reasons, sadly, involve tragedy, pain, suffering, and horror. Deep, overwhelming emotions are most likely to create a haunt, especially when accompanied by death and tragedy.

This sourcebook contains:

  • Formation and Creating a Haunt

  • Haunt Damage Severity by Level, Haunt Initiative and Detecting A Haunt

  • Describing A Haunt and Subduing and Defeating A Haunt

  • Four ways to modifying a Haunt (Elusive Haunt, Latent Haunt, Tenacious Haunt and Unyielding Haunt) and Using Haunts in Adventures

  • Over 45 All New Haunts including Arcane Rift, Creeping Ectoplasm, Devil’s Anvil, Memory of the Late Mistress, Spectral Screams and Unsolved Murder

  • Two New Spells: Haunting Mists and Speak with Haunt

  • Magic item: Haunt Siphon

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.
