Travel through the Gloamswood is fraught with danger—brigands, wild animals, and monsters abound. Deep within the forest, the Wistful Way Inn serves as a respite for weary travelers. Little does any guest know that death lurks under the floorboards of this inn.
When your party stops here for the night, can they interpret the ghostly whispers that keep them awake? Can they solve the mystery of the missing guest? And can they unravel the terrible bargain that was struck long ago and free the inn’s proprietor from her ghastly deal?
Find out in Death by Lanternlight, a new adventure from Lunch Break Heroes for the world’s greatest roleplaying game!
This adventure is compatible with the fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons ruleset, and is suitable for 4-6 characters of 1st or 2nd level.

I finally ran this yesterday to start session 1 of my COS campaign and my players had a blast! It’s really telling when a veteran player and a novice player have a heck of a time trying to figure out what is happening and piece the clues together.
The party was responsible for trying to locate a thief and a stolen item, but little did they know there was so much more going on. The players had suspects, but the mystery only thickened!
One great thing about the adventure is how simply customizable the setting can be. There’s plenty of extra rooms at the inn to always include extra NPCs, which I added 1 extra to throw their trail off slightly.
The maps are so, so immersive. Honestly, even if your not certain of running the adventure, it makes for a great meet-up stop for players with how detailed the inn is!
Worth it for even the read alone!
