The Lumber Ghost Mysteries: A complete campaign using Kids on Bikes

The Lumber Ghost Mysteries: A complete campaign using Kids on Bikes

Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. 1984.

When five kids form the most radical new wave/metal/pop band of all time, everything is looking wicked awesome.

But they immediately become entangled with a weird lady who probably killed a guy. And there might be magical pirate treasure somewhere that they should look for but they have to get ready for a band audition and they can only rehearse at the creepy lumberyard and this fog is pretty weird, isn’t it? Also, I’m pretty sure there’s some kind of ghost or monster or something.

The Lumber Ghost Mysteries is an Actual Play TTRPG show based on the game Kids on Bikes. We took actual musicians and put them in a game where they played musicians. 

Written by Jonathan Gilmour and Doug Levandowski, Kids on Bikes is published by Renegade Game Studio.
