Scented waters stir,
unbound strands aching in search
for a lover’s touch.

The Haiku of Horror series depicts iconic mapped locations for use in Kaidan or other Asian based settings with labeled maps with complete descriptions and full-scale maps ready to print and use, plus image files for use with virtual tabletops. The location includes a complete, detailed, complex encounter featuring new monsters, haunts, and all necessary mechanics to run it. The mapped site is designed for ‘plug-in-play’ use ready to insert into any existing module or Asian campaign.

Autumn Moon Bath House serves as the oriental version of the typical fantasy tavern where adventures begin and end. However, rumors persist of a spectral woman with long black hair, who is seeking vengeance against the living and redemption for her soul.

Awesome!

I named this series 'Haiku' for 3 reasons:

1. It's a recognizable Japanese word and concept to westerners.

2. I've included an appropriate haiku, that elucidates the mystery and location of the site.

3. Since a haiku is a very concise poetry format, this is intended to be a very concise product: as a mapped site, with a single encounter and included mechanics. It's just a slice of Kaidan, so using 'Haiku' in the title is very fitting, I thought.

This is my first published release as author/designer - I hope you enjoy it, as I have plans for many more!

I need to thank Justin Sluder who designed the higher CR stats and the additional special abilities for the yurei no kami ghost of the bath house.

Major kudos to you, gamer-printer! I hope to join the ranks of the published myself someday, and as an avid dark/horror RPG player/GM I will definitely be purchasing and DLing this.

Huzzah!

I thank you, sir! Tell us what you think about this product.

You might also look into the many other products for Kaidan, the setting of Japanese horror.

In the included custom haunts of this release, I've opted to add a Knowledge DC check as part of the stat block. RPGChronicle.com review of #30 Haunts for Kaidan, included a mis-step of not including a Knowledge DC check - even though Paizo's own standard haunt stat block has no reference to such. I agree with that review's assessment, so have included that in each haunt stat block.

Also, I've included a new trigger for haunts - specific time. In ghost lore it is believed some ghosts reenact the final moments of their life, at the same hour every day, like a recorded event. Which means, to me, that some haunts might not be triggered by proximity - entering into the affected area. One of the custom haunts in this production has the trigger of midnight (hour of the rat) - the haunt manifests whether anyone is around to witness it or not. This should attract the PCs attention, and begin a series of related haunts that lead to the first encounter with the yurei no kami ghost of the site.

I can see many haunts triggered by a specific moment in time, depending on the backstory of the event that caused the haunt to form.

The first review of this product is posted at Roleplayers Chronicle and it's 5 stars! Woot! Being my first authored work I've been dying for some feedback and this is a great start!


Reviewed first on Endzeitgeist.com, then submitted to Nerdtrek and GMS magazine and posted here, on OBS and d20pfsrd.com's shop.

Thanks, End! Looks like I need to pick up some Raging Swan Press material to get a better idea on the 'tiny bits of detail' I need to better improve the series. I have plans for many more, so I better get this right!

Incidentally, I'll be doing a written interview (Word in Edgewise) with Roleplayer's Chronicle in a day or two, regarding me, Kaidan and the Haiku of Horror series. I'll post a link to that when it's available.
