A Night of Fright! A haunting adventure of meddling heroes and their talking gnoll

Jinkies! Uldryn Beauregard is dead—and he’s left one million gold to anyone who can survive the night in his haunted mansion! But spooky things are going on, and nothing is as it seems. Luckily, Mystery LLC is on the case!

TL;DR Here’s what you get:

    • A four-hour parody-horror adventure that, if you’re asking me, is pretty funny
    • Five ready-to-play pregenerated characters, each with a custom sheet and token for digital play
    • 5 fully playable subclasses to continue the shenanigans of Mystery LLC
    • A fully coded FG Module
    • Maps! There’s even maps in this sucker. One with labels, one with grid lines, a blank one ... you can really go nuts if you’re into maps!

headshots of Mystery LLC

A Night of Fright is a parodic one-shot adventure designed to be played in a single four-hour session by five players. In a loving send-up of classic mystery cartoons, players will take the role of one of four meddling heroes—or their talking gnoll! Explore a haunted mansion full of traps, frights, spooks, scares, ghosts, ghasts, and ghouls to uncover old Uldryn’s secrets before it’s too late—for this is no run-of-the-mill real estate scam. There’s real danger in the mansion and Mystery LLC will need all the help they can get! 

(Yes, you can play this without the pregenerated characters or with less than five people. It’ll work fine, I promise. It’s just more fun to actually get to be Mystery LLC!)

With over 20 different possible encounters, no two games will be the same. A fully interactive PDF created by bestselling designer Lydia Van Hoy helps DMs easily navigate the digital format.

Honestly, we just had a lot of fun making this adventure. So much so that we kind of accidentally created five new subclasses: Bespectacled Sleuth Rogue, Warlock of The Damsel, Oath of Traps Paladin, Way of the Coward Monk, and Bardic College of Snacks. These subclasses are fully playable, but a bit more on … let’s generously call it the “fun” side. They’re pretty balanced! Probably! Just don’t peek too close. Anyway, you could actually play a full campaign with the Mystery LLC gang and please do and send us stories. 

This adventure is purposefully designed to be a bit on the lighter side. It could fairly be stated that we openly flaunt generally accepted guidelines like “don’t build in villain monologues” and “don’t split the party.” But the result is a replayable, trope-laden game of memorable fun and moderate spooks that multiple playtesters said was “really fun!”

In the "2.00 The Beauregard Mansion" story entry the "DM Map: Beauregard Mansion" does not link to anything.

Also is the Fright of night 2 coming to Fantasy Grounds?

I'm sorry to hear that Steven but I appreciate you bringing it to our attention. We will get that corrected and upload an updated .mod file for you. I'll reply to this comment when it is ready to be redownloaded.

I purchased and downloaded in early December and am preparing to run this fun adventure, but the DM

I updated this and fixed the broken links and also added LOS for Unity.

Is this Unity-ready? Is there an option for LoS in the map files?

It should work in Unity, but no, the LOS was not added to the maps.

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.
