Halloween games are the best. :) I'll have to post an update on my game. Had people killing each other in paranoia and such. It was great. :D Looks like you had a lot of fun!

That shot of the Ranger in the crypts is great! They look terrified ... a good weary pose on that mini for the location.
Your town square set up is really nice too, I'm a big fan of the ruins!

Were the crypt sections at the end of the circular dungeon area? Looks like a lot of fun.
Yeah, I bought those ruins not too long ago and was really excited to get to use them. (Part of my inspiration for this was using a bunch of new pieces, heh.)

They actually started in the crypt...there's a big chasm running through this part of the town, and this building was on the edge of it. You can see my unpainted ledges at the edge of the street setup. The stairs down into the vault were blocked with rubble, so they had to rappel down the back side where the old family crypts had been exposed, then make their way through to the vault. The "dungeon" is just a linear series of rooms and halls (the top of one section connects to the bottom of the other).

So who or what were the torch blocks with the dice on them?
They were Will-o'-Wisps. The party had to venture into an area called "The Wound", a necromantic scar through the city, remnants of a battle ~150 years ago, to find an artifact that was possibly still in a vault of someone who, unfortunately, once lived right near the edge of the area before it was created. Shadows of former residents were lurking in the houses surrounding the square, along with 3 Wisps, who would lure people by flashing their torchlight in the ruins.

I thought, perfect opportunity to use those torch stands that have been collecting dust!

The dice were usually status effects. The party throws them out to mark Hex or Hunters Mark and Faerie Fire was represented out there at one point too.

Just got a couple of "action shots" from my player along with a little retirement shot of the Ranger in the crypts.

Small session based on some DF layouts

I didn't have a solid plan for yesterdays game until earlier last week when AnimeiSensei mentioned his Halloween game. That inspired me to make up a last minute story line for my group that was a little horror themed with lots of undead, which also resulted in a mad scramble to paint my ruins and some DoD pieces in time (and finish 3 prints which totaled about 96 hours). Fortunately, I got enough done in time to run the game. Unfortunately, I ended up killing one of my PCs this session (only the third one I've ever killed, the last two being back in 2nd or 3rd edition).

Nothing spectacular here in this setup, but I particularly enjoyed making a ruined section of the city, and this is the first time I've managed to use my Catacombs, which I bought with a birthday gift cert from my gaming group over a year ago!

These pieces are still WIP, as I had a lot to finish before the game, and these were "table ready" enough to use.
