Review – Halloween Horrors

22 October, 2014

Halloween Horrors provides six supernatural foes suitable for modern superhero games, though they could easily be adjusted to find modern horror games as well.  A good source of inspiration for horror-based adventures, nothing too deep here but the horrors are easy to use and should spark an adventure when you need one.

Halloween Horrors is a selection of six horror enemies for the Supers! RPG.  Each monster entry is framed by an entry from the journal of Xavier Stone, Occultist, and his planned confrontation with each creature which is a good conceit (and Xavier gets statted out in the back).

Each horror gets a brief description, an illustration (and an a-frame standee to print in the back) and a plot seed (in a “Terror-tastic Tidbit” sidebar), the actual character sheet for each creature is in a separate section at the back.

It is a good spread with the traditional horror represented by the barghest, nightmares get the Dream Reaver, otherworldly horrors (called “Those who wait Beyond the Veil” here) have the Eye of Phugg and the Ghost of Hollis Whatley, while modern urban horror is represented by the Gingerdead Man (a possessed cookie creature) and the Postman.  Though the horrors are all designed for the Supers! System, it is a light system and they should be easy enough to convert over to any other superheroic or modern horror system.

There is also a version for Capes, Cowls and Villains Foul.
