Sorrow on the Glens - A Murder Mystery Role Playing Game


Welcome to "Sorrow on the Glens" a murder mystery roleplaying game.

This is a new scenario for the same set of rules as The Ballad of Texas Red, and Last Voyage of the Blackened Heart, but the full rules are included here. 

In the Winter of 1878, deep in the Scottish Highlands, the noble Sir Alasdair Mackenzie is found dead. As is tradition, his family travel to their woodland lodge to lay his body to rest, and mourn quietly in peace. But this lodge is far from peaceful, and these woods will let no one rest. Whispers in the night, voices in the dark. There are conspiracies among the servants, tensions in the family, and everyone's got secrets... secrets they'd kill to keep. Sir Alasdair was murdered, there's no doubt about it, and the killer is here in this Lodge. Clan Mackenzie is in for one very long night.

This is a one-off social deception roleplaying game for 6-7 players. Players roleplay as their characters, using snippets of knowledge no one else knows to slowly solve the many mysteries of Clan Mackenzie. Players will lie and decieve, plot and scheme, and when your suspicions are confirmed... go for the kill.

This isn't a game for sitting around a table; it's a game for standing, for whispering, for pulling your friend into another room away from listening ears. 

Also included are rules for playing online over voice or video calls. An extra person is needed to act as a Moderator in online play. 

Good luck, and trust no one.

Original electronic
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.
