If you want to achieve an eerie feeling in players, have children involved. There is something creepy about dead children that not too many other types of scare tactics can achieve. Some of the scariest movies of all time involve children terrorizing the adults in their life. Good Little Children Never Grow Up succeeds at providing a spooky Pathfinder adventure by taking advantage of the dead children premise.
Good Little Children, by Sneak Attack Press, is a 25 page mini-adventure with enough substance to take a party well into the night. There are no more than 3 encounters, but a good dungeon master can milk the role playing out of this adventure for an entire evening.
More than just a simple haunted house story, Good Little Children manages to rise above other adventures that fail to creep out players by separating the party mentally. Using a neat little handout system, players will perceive various portions of the house differently. It is much easier to take down a party when they are not on the same page.
For the Dungeon Master
The adventure follows a simple track, but has very colorful characters that can produce some strong role playing moments. This adventure can easily be wrapped around a Halloween game night one shot or inserted into a campaign.
The Iron Word
Forget Halloween candy, this nugget is a perfect little morsel for a Halloween Role Playing Game session. The simple nature is great for a group that does not meet regularly or for a DM who wants to have a minor diversion from their normal campaign.
