About the adventure

Of all the Hollows in The Wood, Misty Manors is known for their incredible Hallows' Eve celebrations. With the promise of a celebration to be remembered, you and your companions entered The Wood. But as is always present in this strange realm is the Fiend and their many Shadows. Arriving upon the cobblestone paths of Misty Manors, you'll discover a celebration in disarray. Can you and your companions stop The Fiend's plan and restore joy to this Hollow? Or will your Hallows' Eve be void of treats? Enter The Wood in this game of Babes in the Wood, a PbtA game inspired by the hit animated show, "Over the Garden Wall". With use of "The Quiet Year", players will build Misty Manors during Session 0, and then discover how the Hollow stands in Session 1!

Gameplay details

The players will be playing characters within the world of The Wood. Some of the playbooks are from our world, while others have only known The Wood. With only 5 playbooks, the game can only have 2-6 players. The average session will be mainly focused on Roleplay and decision making, as the system does not have combat rules! Hallows' Eve Haunting focuses on themes of hope, trust, darkness, ghosts, unfinished business, and any themes that are brought in during session 0! CW: Minor Horror, Fear, Creepy Situations, Simulated Danger to Children Note: Some of the playbooks within Babes in the Wood are children, but do not fret, Babes in the Wood is not a system where characters are meant to die. They might take a scrape, cry, or get a headache, but no actual harm will come to any character. The Safety Tools in use for this game are "Lines & Veils", "Stars & Wishes", "X,N,O Cards", and "Open-Door Policy". Session 0 will include a dedicated explanation of those safety tools for all players. Session 0 will explain the safety tools, and also involve the players and GM participating in the GM-less map-making game, The Quiet Year.

How will character creation work

Character Creation will be done by selecting your top 3 playbooks. As there are only 5 playbooks, the GM will not force anyone to pick a playbook they do not want, but they do want everyone to try to get a playbook they want. Playbooks will be determined before Session 0, and character creation is quite simple. The Quiet Year does not involve any character creation.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Low
