Tegel Manor Returns Kickstarter

The Haunted House that started it all!

A reproduction of original 1977 map.

First published in 1977, Tegel Manor is the oldest of “Haunted House” adventures in fantasy roleplaying, and probably the very first megadungeon ever published. The Manor is a sprawling edifice of 250+ rooms filled with tricks, traps, puzzles, monsters, and situations both humorous and horrific. The huge manor house has been the curse of its owners, the Rump family, for generations – no matter how many times they have tried to get rid of it, the ownership manages to come back to them. 

This intertwined and sinister relationship between the house and its chosen family is a history of horror, evil, and greed. There is a lot for the characters to learn about the curse, and their knowledge might just keep them alive long enough to tell the tale.

This Kickstarter from Grog God Games is already funded and well on its way through stretch-goals. An interesting aspect of the campaign is that the physical books are initially in softcover (both S&W and D&D 5e), but as each edition surpasses 250 backers they will be upgraded to hardcover at no extra cost.

The counts for these editions as of yesterday 11/24 mid-afternoon was:

SW 139/250
5E 222/250

Since I’m a S&W backer for this Kickstarter I’m hoping more of you will throw your support behind Matt Finch and company to get these books into hardcover.

So what are you waiting for? Get over to Kickstarter and check out the campaign! If you like what you see consider supporting FGG on this endeavor!


  • I never had the opportunity to play Tegel Manor or any of the Judge’s Guild material. I kickstarted this one for 5E just because anytime I can interject old school mindset into 5E I do. I am not a fan of running 5E but I am a fan of how much my younger plays love the system and being able to run something that interests me makes it icing on the cake. I am sure the Frogs will do a great job translating it to modern times!
