One of the grave robbers is caught. The crowd wheels him about with furious, amateurish blows to his head and defensively raised arms. "Where is the body?" they shout. "Where did they take it?" 

The body thief wails. "We were to take the body to Dr. Galfani! To the Flayed House!" he says, begging mercy.

DIE, GRAVE ROBBER, DIE! is a gothic horror one-shot RPG incursion for Trophy Dark, designed for 3-5 players. A rain-drenched world of horror and open graves awaits! Can you reach the Flayed House in time to rescue a stolen body before it’s too late?

Never played Trophy Dark before?  No problem! All the rules you need are contained within. 

This collaborative play-to-lose RPG scenario follows a group of desperate people charged with reclaiming a stolen body that's been spirited out of its grave.  It is very likely that all of them will die or—at best—be permanently scarred and haunted by the experiences waiting for them in the Flayed House!

Need an online character keeper?  Die, Grave Robber, Die! is supported by this Trophy Dark Character Keeper courtesy of Ben Bond (Arktosaur). Note: requires a Google account to access.

I have run A Warm and Pleasant Hum before, played Devil Aim For Me, and have now run this module, my friends and I loved all of them we are big fans of Michael Van Vleets trophy dark modules!  I will admit though I might not be the best for running them, my parties survived both times LOL


I'm now very keen to run this and to learn more about the Trophy system. What a smashing oneshot.


Had a great time running this for my group. Fantastic writing and a good introduction to Trophy.


A truly unique Trophy incursion full of thought-provoking questions, disturbing imagery, and eerie atmosphere. This would be a great Halloween one-shot. 


Absolutely excellent approach to Trophy Dark and some really inventive conditions really take this incursion to the next level. Highly recommend.
