Twenty Year Old Weird House

Recommended Posts

It was built on your street in the mid-Nineties. You've never met the owner. Every year they put up and take down their Halloween decorations two weeks early. Even though you have since left the neighborhood you can't get it out of your mind. It calls to you. You've contacted the your childhood friends, they feel the same. It's almost the holidays, you'll be returning home soon. You all will. You and your friends meet at night and head to the door. You turn the handle. It's unlocked, the door creaks open onto a dark hallway. You take one last glance at your friends to steel your nerves then enter the Twenty Year Old Weird House.



Weird House is a randomly-generated non-euclidean dungeon crawl tabletop RPG meant for 3-5 players. I'm planning on doing the sourcebook in Twine, allowing players (particularly the GM) to easily skip between relevant section of the book. 

The game is about your search for an exit from the Weird House, which is a byzantine and thoroughly nonsensical mashup of hallways, bathrooms, basements, kitchens, etc. all randomly decided by the roll of the dice. In the House you will find enemies such as Pizza Hut Big Dogs and A Person Shaped Thing, while trying to appease the various Masters of the House. Perhaps you have been sent to acquire warm beer for legendary frost wizard Jeff Coldblum to make frosty, or you must help find the missing Molyneux. Either way, it's going to be dangerous, so strap on a pair of slyboots, and grab the nearest object that can conceivably be used as a weapon, and fight until you've made your way out, or until you die. That can happen. You can also become a BADASS WIZARD.

This sounds great! Like a Thumbs-themed expansion for Betrayal at House on the Hill.
