House of Horror, also known as House of Hell 2, is a fan written Fighting Fantasy adventure by Gaetano Abbondanza. It was published online in 2003.[1]


"This estate probably belongs to some hideously wealthy but eccentric old chap, who's tired of being hit up for money, so he moved out here. I might do the same were I in his shoes." You open the trunk and pull out the two suitcases. Little do you know what fate has in store for you. Tonight will be a night to remember...[2]


The book in general follows the original rules set down in The Warlock of Firetop Mountain (see Game System).

Unique RulesEdit

  • House of Horror uses the same fear score from House of Hell. Every time the player encounters some particularly disturbing event, they must add between 1 and 3 fear points to the total fear score. Once the character reaches the maximum score, determined at the beginning of the game, they will quite literally die of fright.
  • As the book is set on modern day Earth, the reader is unarmed at the start of the book and suffers a skill penalty of 3 points until they find a weapon.

Equipment ListEdit

The player begins with no equipment or Provisions.
