Free Game of the Week: The Manse on Murder Hill (Labyrinth Lord Adventure)

Yep, I'm a bit late swapping out the free game of the week this week. I'm going to blame that on a hectic work schedule this week, allergies and just plain forgetfulness. I'm freely throwing myself on the sword ;)

This week's free game product (and probably next week's too, as this week is almost over) is The Manse on Murder Hill by Taskboy Games. It's a mystery / rescue mission for characters of 1st through 3rd level in Labyrinth Lord. Joe Johnston wrote it (not sure if I've seen any previous work from him, but he does a decent job here) and the art is by Stuart Robertson. Stuart does some fine work here.

The Manse on Murder Hill is billed as the first part of a trilogy. I'm not sure if the rest of the series is going to be free or not, but even at a couple of bucks you'd be getting your money's worth.

A Sample of Stuart's Work
The random rumor table is 40 entries long, so there are enough red herrings and truthful tales to keep you party moving, maybe not in the right direction, but definitely moving.

This isn't a dungeon adventure but a mansion adventure. Well, I guess in the end it still plays out like a dungeon, but that's not the point. It's an abandoned mansion, and that should lead to it's own atmosphere and spookiness.

From the blurb:

Several children of Little Flanders have gone missing near an abandoned house of evil repute. A desperate town has begged your heroes to exorcise the house of evil spirits and rescue the children. Will you brave the dangers of the Manse on Murder Hill?


  1. Thanks for choosing Manse as your Freebie! I hope people get a chance to play the module this weekend.
