A Night of Fright! 2: The Lich's Ghost


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

Product pages are long, so here’s the quickie version of what you get:

  • A highly replayable four-to-six-hour horror-parody adventure.

  • 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 interactive PDF that’s really enjoyable to click around in.

  • The ability to show all your friends a good time and look cool doing it.

headshots of Mystery LLC

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!

Unfortunately, not this year! My editor and cover artist, Sadie, has spent the year working for Wizards of the Coast, Critical Role, and MCDM--she's been packed! I do have a strong outline for a third and it may come to fruition eventually... but not quite yet!

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.
