'The Old House' proved more challenging then the players were expecting. The house was more like a malevolent force of the supernatural then an old haunted house. The haunted house had a very nasty personality as it played marry havoc with the vampiric PC's. Manifestions of oozes, ghostly guardians, and traps took out two of the vampires while the half breed hunters in tonight's game survived. The rooms bleed acid and manifested two horrid phantoms that tear apart another PC.
The PC's were finally able to locate the copy of the King in Yellow & escape the clutches of the 'Old House'. There are couple of observations about 'The Old House' because of the nature of the tool kit & OSR adventure. 'The Old House' could effectively be randominly created each & every time the PC's go into it. This allows the DM to get the maximum about of OSR ulitity out of the adventure & makes 'The Old House' an almost living entity within it's own right.
'A Sweet Serenade' is part EC comic book & Twilight Zone nightmare mixed together with vampiric elements. The adventure quickly escalates into power struggles & combat if not played correctly. And gamers never go correctly because 'Sweet Serenade' went into vampiric combat. There was one PC death in tonight's game.
