loving this game! I have seen a few mentions of a playkit, and character keeper, where do I locate those?
A downloadable game
We are ghosts. We are in a house we don't recognize. We have a handful of memories, and these memories are brief moments and flashes of barely something. The Living are nearby, and they encroach on our space, making their demands. Worse, there is a Thing in the Walls. It is ancient, inhuman. Hungry, yearning. Angry.
But this is Our Haunt now. This is our home, and we only have each other as family. If we take care of each other, good things will happen. We just know it.
Our Haunt is a tabletop RPG about a family of ghosts built on the Belonging Outside Belonging system, inspired by games like Dream Askew/Dream Apart, Wanderhome, and Balikbayan: Returning Home. It's a rules-light engine with no dice and no masters, focused around tokens and community play.
In Our Haunt, we will play as one of the following playbooks:
- The Loved, who remains in this world hoping to find their lost love — or at least, honor their memory.
- The Betrayed, murdered by violent means, trapped as a ghost until they get revenge.
- The Faceless, who died so long ago they can barely remember their true form.
- The Returned, who has seen the worlds beyond death and is here to spread the word.
- The Doll, trapped inside the body of a doll and unable to express their true self.
- The Cat, or the ghost of a cat, wandering these halls among these strange humans.
Once we've made our characters, we'll develop the haunted house we live in before exploring the strange and creepy world that exists around us. Our Haunt is perfect for oneshot or campaign play, with sessions lasting between 2-4 hours. While we play, we'll discover memories of our past, tussle with the living, dodge the ancient monstrosities that lurk beyond the veil, and support each other in a strange and liminal half-world.

hi Rae, I purchased the game through DriveThruRPG and I keep seeing references to a separate “Playkit.” Where would I find that document?
This looks lika a fun game! Is there anyway you can add more community copies?
The book mentions an online character keeper — is this available yet? I can't seem to find a link anywhere. Thank you!
Hello, is there any plans for more community copies anytime soon?
Hello! I went ahead and added a free community copy for each 5 star rating we get here on itchio so!! More community copies!
(In case they run out before you can grab one, please let me know, I'll be happy to send you a personal download link!)
A very inspiring haunt! I will hack or port it to my game :)
Is it possible to get the character sheets to print out? My physical copy just arrived and I want to play it but would like to have sheets to pass out and make it a bit easier.
I was wondering if you were planning on adding more community copies of this game? :)
We haven't had new purchases recently but I'm happy to send you a download key! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org :)
Hi! I sent you an email, maybe it got lost in the haunted house
"Recently I bought the physical copy of our haunt in a brick & mortar store, is it possible to download our haunt playbooks/character sheets somewhere?"
oh this looks great!!!
A wonderful spooky and emotionally touching place that's a perfect pick to take the Belonging Outside Belonging way of play to!
