The Ghost Hack

Selected Option:

You lived. You died. It didn't end there.. 

You're a ghost and you're still bound up in your Mortal Coils: people who neede you, people who hate you, people and places you can't leave behind.

You have powers, the crafts of your ghostly Trade, along with the mighty Soulfire. But yet, you Rot. The Grave calls you. Days by day and year by year, your soul decays.

Perhaps the answer lies beyond the Living World, in Hades. There are Infernos there and Paradises too, cities of the Dead and mysteries to solve.

Can you survive your own death?

Welcome to The Ghost Hack, a new take on the '90s games that let you roleplay the monster! In The Ghost Hack you will find:

  • Four different classes of ghost to choose from
  • A range of crafts your ghost can use
  • Rules for your Mortal Coil that ties you to the Living World
  • Usage die mechanics to cover the power of your Soul, the extent of your Rot and the health of your mortal attachments
  • Rules for combat, chases, NPC antagonists, the realm of Hades and different styles of play
  • A nice character sheet and flow charts

Very good. You should make a Geist / Orpheus like supplement for me.

Yes. I am struggling with formatting and it takes ages to turn each draft around on drivethrurpg ... but hopefully any day now. The two scenarios too!

Hello. This is the author! I've got a lot of ideas about where to take this game and the forthcoming FEY HACK. Writing a campaign pack is quite a challenge but I've got a concept based in a haunted hospital. I'm keen to get started on the 18th century GHOST PIRATE HACK expansion - should it be stand-alone? Of course, new classes, that's a given. What else would THE GHOST HACK benefit from? And how could the first draft be improved, in terms of rules, balance, presentation, everything?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
