d100 Petty Ghosts and Hauntings

So i did some goblin stuff before now here is the ghosts. Idea been kicking about since i worked on my gothic dungeon zone book but recently needed for my trench exploration games. Searching through haunted sappers trenches through petty phantoms is needed for con game next month. Have art fair this weekend paid gig which is nice. Got some nice APCs, more cars, planes and emhar brand ww1 brits and german supposed tank crews but do have lotsa heavy weapons.

While made for WW1 could be transposed to other times nd will revise a version if i ever do my gothic zone book for DnD.

  1. d100 greater ghosts and spirits encounters
    stuff that hurts more

    demons leading off to late medieval underworld
    medieval demons

  2. Good stuff. A party that is revealed to be in a minefield or broken up by shelling would be pretty. grim. A marching band, maybe one recruiting volunteers for helll.
