    13 professional voiceover talent-recorded audio GHOST STORIES add-on. Each of these 13 stories is important to each of the 13 members of the Ravenscroft Family. You do NOT need this, as it is WRITTEN in the full adventure, but this is the AUDIO file package, which will definitely save the DM/GM’s voice, as well as add some GREAT atmosphere. The one FREE sample can be found in the story section (writeup) of this KS project.

    144+ pages approx. This is the DIGITAL ONLY add-on that allows the PLAYERS to record a TON of info that the eager and anxious Ravenscroft Family expects to get nightly updates on all findings, casualties, killings, treasures, secrets, etc. Form fill fields galore, you Poe-loving pilgrim! It also has THE FULL monte of ALL 13 family members, the 3 Hired Helpers (servants) and 3 Ghost Hunters. 13 magic items bequeathed per each ghost slain, and the 13 MAIN GHOSTS! Players should LOVE this lovely extra... or else... ; )

    32-40+ Page SOFTCOVER book. THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF ROBAIRE RAVENSCROFT, Roderick Ravenscroft’s brother. He has set at least one “wild goose chase” type of stipulation for each of the 13 surviving family members to achieve, or they get squat. The players must make sure this is done, and they must oversee this entire operation by the end of the 2 week (fortnight) campaign. This is an ADD ON. I doubt anyone would ONLY want this book. A digital version of this very book is also available so you can save some hard earned loot!

    After doing some work on a current project, I came across a better “system” of creating the look, tone and feel of the inside of ARROWGHAST’S SPIRIT SUMMONING GRIMOIRE. The system is loosely based on research regarding something else, but in this case, GHOSTS and other evil spirits. This is an extra addition to ARROWGHAST’S SPIRIT SUMMONING GRIMOIRE for potential self-publishers that might want to create their own FICTIONAL SPELLBOOK or summoning book. This package will have: (for PRINT + DIGITAL) 1. The Adobe InDesign file 2. The Adobe Illustrator file 3. The Adobe Photoshop file 4. The INSIDE SPREAD DESIGN 5. COMMERCIAL LICENSE The cover will need to be supplied by you, and/or your own designer to allow for a UNIQUE product, but here are the 300-res assets: • 18 FREE FONTS - NO COPYRIGHT! • 18 Unique, Editable Sigils • Optional “Angelic” or Protective Spirit Sigils • Brief Explanation on “How it Works” - Methodology! • 100% DIGITAL PRODUCT • My Best Wishes! ; )~

    When the digital only version of this project ran in November 2018, 6 AMAZING humanoids selected this option. There are 7 slots still open! Each backer (this is an ADD-ON) will have the opps to create their own mystery meals, a full page bio with PG-rated links and 1 recipe each of 1 breakfast, 1 lunch and 1 dinner! 3 MEALS TOTAL! You will get credits in the cookbook as well, homie! This is simply a nominal fee to submit 3 recipes apiece, to have it in the cookbook + itinerary!

    100+ pages APPROX. This is the PRINT ONLY HARDCOVER book that is another PLAYER’S “handbook” of sorts, that allows them to see the “real world” or “in world” view of this very helpful book that the PCs may use to materialize the ghosts and evil spirits into a form that the ghosts cannot dematerialize and escape. In other words, it is a fun and OPTIONAL PROP that the players can use for added immersion. A Digital version of this exact book is available as well, if you would like to save some monkey! : )

    This has everything you need to run this adventure. It does have the castle maps, but they are not in a large, digital VTT format. They are within the boundaries of a 8.5” x 11” 150 Res digital book. It does NOT have the FULL castle (player’s) Investigator Guidebook, but a half-sized (half the content) version. A 100% FREE version is included as a FREE digital download via Dropbox in the story section. This is what you would select if you want a barebones, no extras, full RPG adventure!!! • 400+ Page FULL Adventure • INVESTIGATOR GUIDEBOOK - Integral for the DM/GM (NOT the player’s version) • Itinerary (does NOT include cookbook, just a Menu, and itinerary) • ART BOOK - Integral for the DM/GM • ARROWGHAST’S SPIRIT SUMMONING GRIMOIRE - The DM/GM’s version. *NOTE: This has all of the necessities, but NOT all of the bells and whistles that the separate player’s books have - which are given to the players for added immersion, but are not completely necessary. DIGITAL ONLY.

    110+ page, 40-RECIPE (PRINT HARDCOVER) COOKBOOK and itinerary. Please note, that this is just an added extra and is Not integral to running the adventure. That said, if you would like to read the recipes of 13 real backers contributing 40 recipes (13 x 3 = 39 + 1 mystery ​meat) then this might be fun to have. A light, barebones itinerary is in the main adventure, so again, it is not 100% necessary. Just a fun and optional extra. This book, as well as the cheaper digital version, DOES HAVE SOME GREAT JUICY GOSSIP RUMORS that only the helpful but profoundly annoying Mrs. Butterburr could provide!

    This is NOT the full adventure... This is one of the several “player’s handbooks” available. 144+ pages APPROX. This is the PRINT ONLY version of the PLAYER’S ADVENTURER’S GUIDEBOOK. This would be used by the players to take turns recording their findings, adventures, casualties and accomplishments in a physical book. You can also have ONE appointed SCRIBE. Also, if this print only option is too steep a price, the digital version of this book can be had for a fraction of this cost, and will have form fill fields that can be saved as digital pdfs you can share with your fiends or use as keepsakes to look back on!! : )

    This includes all of the $40 rewards, but also includes... • 13, audio GHOST STORIES for the PLAYERS and the DM/GMs to enjoy. Also helpful to save the voice of the DM/GM, as each of these audios will be several minutes apiece. Each GHOST STORY is a tale told by each member of the rather odd and eccentric RAVENSCROFT FAMILY. Each of these tales is a backstory and a confession of sorts. Each of these confessional ghost stories tells of a tragic tale which each family member believes is the reason for their current torments​ and escalating hauntings. DIGITAL ONLY.

The charmingly annoying Mrs. Butterburr, master chef to THE RAVENSCROFT FAMILY, has taken a liking to (trust me, she will!) one or more of the adventurers... She has decided to show her LOVE by slipping a copy of her award-winning cookbook COMPLETE with the daily and nightly itinerary over 14 days, but also, bits of “JUICY GOSSIP” that ONLY the rather unique Mrs. Butterburr can provide! Ha-Ha!!! DIGITAL ONLY.
