The Fall Fright Express is…

An all-age focused spooky themed premade tabletop RPG setting that can be used with any system that you want!  It takes place on a magical train made of a wild variety of train cars that defy time and space!  Make your way from one car to the next to help The Scarecrow defeat The Crow King, reunite Esther and Morris in the afterlife, and discover THE ULTIMATE CANDY HAUL!

Features of The Fall Fright Express:

Player questions in each train car provide players with prompts to fill in the scene how they want, making this train special to your players, helping them to get invested in each scenario, and encouraging them to think about situations before acting.

Character and item interactions may occur depending on the order that cards are drawn, changing how train cars behave when you replay the adventure.

36 unique train cars full of different NPCs, puzzles, events, encounters, and more give plenty of options for making a magical story.

Multiple ways to play are provided, allowing you to enjoy this game with the print-and-cut train cards, a six-sided die, or a deck of playing cards.

Everything you need to set up your adventure is written out in the Story Guide Table to give a solid framework for your tale but with enough flexibility to work for your chosen system and tailor to your players needs.

System agnostic plots, checks, and encounters are provided so you can use any system that you want!

A complete Story Guide Sheet gives the story guider all the secret info that they need to run each car for their players, making this a great first intro to running a tabletop RPG or a low set up game for experienced story guiders.

  • 36 unique printable train car cards:
