"My players were afraid to enter a room, but were also excited!"

"My players had a blast and it was a fun adventure to run."..."they all enjoyed the atmosphere of the adventure and commented that the creepy stuff definitely felt creepy."

"This is truly awesome. Well Done!"


The Haunt

Unlock the secrets and drive back the evil from Montarthas Manor

A one shot, 6-8 hour Horror themed adventure, designed for characters of 4th or 5th level.

In ages past, an ancient town was lost and destroyed to a seige of orcs. Only one building survived and to this day, the manor is the only still standing building to be seen for miles around. Some say it is haunted, a few whisper of great treasures within, whilst others whisper that it is the manor itself that lives! 

No one knows for sure, only that a great evil haunts its halls.

Do you dare enter Montarthas Manor?!

DISCLAIMER! This will be a challenging adventure for 4th level player groups of 3 to 5 players with some deadly encounters. However, ideally The Haunt is tailored as a medium difficulty adventure with plenty of excitement, horror, suspense and danger for a 5th level party of 4 to 5 players.

I have had this a while and never got to run it until now. Had fun was supposed to be 5 level 4's but ended up with just 4 and it was kinda tough.the kitchen beside the ballroom is not numbered which when asked about i had no clue exactly what it was but guessed it was a small kitchen.

Entering the pool area it states or if they come within 5ft of the poolside, then the guardian come up well as soon as they enter they are right beside the pool and within 5 ft. i know it was asked and answered here but updating where the door is in area 6 with something like its not actually shown but you will find it there will be helpful as i didnt get it at first.

Only other issue was if they fail the sewing in the basement they wake up in the boss fight room, that kind of kills off the entire adventure, i had them wake up[ in the hallway upstairs to then give them stuff to do.

Overall though a solid adventure i set the scene and even have a creepy doll that i put on the table for the...See more

Question; on page 9, it indicates that the doll will be seen to be "repaired" after the first encounter, which explains the doll regenerating. however, I'm not seeing any information about how much it regenerates? Does it fully heal every time it escapes?

Yes I figured it would fully heal and did so just to mess with the players and give a tougher opponent.

Hey There!!! I am a TTRPG creator putting together content for a variety TTRPG Twitch stream this fall. I'd love to do an adaptation of The Haunt on stream. Do I have your permission to play the adventure on stream, and if so, how would you like me to credit you and are there any stipulations?

Hey James,

Unfortunately, there is no Foundry VTT support here on DMsGuild, but we just released The Haunt for Roll20 (see the above-updated product page for details).

Everything in this book is also found in the trilogy... and with the Special Edition trilogy, you get even more including refined encounters (thanks to feedback over the years), character sheets, and paper minis.

Cheers

So publish on DriveThruRPG. I had my Roll20 account deleted at the same time I had my WotC and DnDBeyond accounts deleted back in January. I'm a bit surprised to see that content creators I respect are still publishing to any of them.

If DMsGuild is going to lock out competing VTT platforms, I might just delete my account here as well!

Hi Phil,

I just bought the Fantasy Grounds version of this adventure, and I'm excited to run this as a one-shot for my home group this coming Halloween weekend. Quick question on areas 02.06 The Ball Room and 02.07 Alfresco Area: the module says these areas are connected by a glass folding door, but on the map I don't see any door connecting the two. Am I missing something? Thanks for your help!

Hey Aaron,

Apologies for the late laaaate reply (it's been a year for sure)... but you're right, the map has a missing door on the right (east) side of the ballroom that leads out to the pool area. This has been fixed in the Roll20 version, but also will be fixed in the PDF version soon.

Late reply from me too haha, but thanks for letting me know. Glad to know I wasn't confusing myself when I ran this. I ended up just modifying the map locally in Fantasy Grounds, and it worked like a charm.

I am a first time dm running Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden, and I thought this module would make an excellent Halloween one shot to work into the campaign. However, my players are currently at 3rd level, although they have a decently large party size of six. They have been doing very well so far in terms of dealing damage, but I am worried about a TPK happening during the final fight of this module. Does anyone have any recommendations on how I could appropriately level this for a 3rd level party? (I was thinking of dropping monster health, damage slightly, Gertrude summons 2 ghouls instead of 3, etc)

Where is the map for the basement, room 15?

I am running this adventure on Roll20 for Halloween.

Hi Albert, Due to the encounter not intended to be a combat encounter, no map was ever created for it (it's literally a puzzle disguised as a room).

However, if you want something visual for your players, a quick google search gave me this which should be perfectly compatible for your needs :)

Hey! I'm about to run this adventure for my friends (in Norwegian, so I'm pretty much translating the majority of it). I suddenly realized: there is NO door into area 7! How do they get in there? I was going to say there were some glass doors or something, but there is no indication there is anything but a wall there.

Overall I loved it and so did my players but a few minor issues

1 technicaly someone could magehand the switch for the secret door thing and get stuck on the other side

2 im not sure it said anywhere what happens to the golem after it opens the door?

Hi David, firstly thanks for the kind words, I am glad you and your group enjoyed it :)

Just to address your minor issues:

1. The secret door is really a trap designed to split the party... horror works best when players are alone in the dark ;) ... there is also another way out from that side too, so mechanically the adventure still rolls on.

2. You're absolutely right. I have a Special Edition hardcover on the way this October. It holds the entire trilogy, has over 100 removable paper minis, custom Haunt character sheets, combat tracker initiative sheets for every combat in the book, and fixes some minor issues that have come to light over the years of folk playing them... one of those issues deals with the Golem and how to handle it once the door is opened :)

Hello, I just purchased the Haunt trilogy and am preparing it to run for my group. It is right up my alley and I know they're going to love it! I noticed that you mentioned above that the golem problem was updated in the special hardcover (which I did not purchase). I was wondering if you would be able to share the solution to the golem issue for those who have not purchased the special edition? This seems like an oversight I'd love to fix if possible. My group plays exclusively online so getting the hardcover is not practical for me.

Thanks,

Matt

Over the last couple years, I have been on a one-shot kick and my group is loving it. The last year has been largely horror-themed. This adventure is one that has caused my players to get other groups together to play through this because they loved it so much. I've run this adventure 5 times now, and it is just the pinnacle of what a one-shot can be. Well-written and thought out, Montarthas Manor is a place of pure horror and immersion.

The prep for this is very easy, from a story and background perspective. It can be inserted into existing campaigns. I recommend building a soundboard for this adventure using something like tabletop audio.com's SoundPad. Their House on the Hill soundboard is nearly perfect for this. Well done! 5+/5 stars!

I just bought your adventure The Haunt from DM's Guild and I was wondering if you have a copy of the map with no grid? I plan on importing it into Fantasy Grounds and it's usually easier when there is no grid.
I know that you have a version already formatted for Fantasy Grounds, but I usually take pre-made adventures and add stuff to them so they are tailored to my players and I find that easier to do when doing the work myself in bringing over the adventure to FG. Thanks!

On page 9 under the Evil Doll heading it says 'roll a d%, there is a 40% chance that the evil doll makes an appearance.'

I'm not sure what roll a d% means? If anyone can clear this up I'd appreciate it!

Heya Ira,

Firstly, thanks for the purchase!

By d% we mean a d100. (2x d10s). If the roll is 40 or under, the doll makes an appearance.

You can always adjust this number or get rid of it completely if you want less randomness for her appearances.

Hope this helps

Cheers

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.

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.
