You’ve been invited to a haunted house. That haunted house is a Discord server. Find your greatest fear, spill your worst secrets, and get to the thrilling seance in This Discord Has Ghosts in It.
Players are either investigators or ghosts:
- investigators can only speak
- ghosts can only type
Ghosts may only type, filling the channels of a Discord with frights! Spreading horror throughout the rooms and spaces of this house with text, images, audio, or video.
Investigators may only speak in a voice channel, with everyone listening in, like walkie-talkies or shouts throughout the space.
Throughout the game, ghosts haunt rooms while investigators explore, get spooked, and learn about the ghosts, all while narrating the horror to all players and hinting at their secret motives. Ghost players reveal parts of themselves by creating new rooms, in turn making the house a labyrinth. Investigators get to the bottom of these mysteries and spill secrets of their own.
Every game culminates in a supernatural seance. In this final act, confront each ghost about their mysteries, and each investigator about their secrets.
This revised edition has improved how the game is presented, taught, and includes tons of options for playing. Roles have been developed further, including new secondary goals for the ghosts and investigators. It leans into the worldbuilding and creativity that both the ghosts and investigators do, and provides a dramatic ending for every game of This Discord Has Ghosts in It.
The game comes with extensive facilitator support and tools, making the game easier to host and easier for new players to jump in. As far as extras, this revised edition includes a whole host of readymade haunts with matching Discord templates and new options for frights, ghosts, and investigators. New players and less Discord-savvy folks can even find step-by-step setup instructions and premade templates to guide them along the way.
