  • Alexandra Frund Clinton and The Deittman Files: a Ghost Hunting RPG and LARPed Community Release Party.
    Author Alexandra Frund Clinton’s and her team have gathered some of their real world ghost hunting stories and combined it with their years of tabletop gaming experience to bring to you, “the Deittman Files: a Ghost Hunting RPG!” Create a character with psychic abilities or research backgrounds as you set off to explore haunted locations, search for cryptids, or even attempt to crack cold cases! All you need to play is a set of dice, a few character sheets, one game book–and of course, some friends! Choose one person to play as the Game Master, guiding you through one of the pre-made stories or creating their own tales! At Hill-Con 2021, Alexandra and her team will be present to run a few short games to teach attendees how to play! Never played a tabletop RPG before? No problem! The easy to use Gamebook helps walk new players through the rules and mechanics!
