Gloomier: A Night at Hemlock Hall

Description
There’s mystery and murder afoot at Hemlock Hall. But this isn’t a story about the dashing detective—it’s the tale of the unfortunate victims. Compete to tell the most tragic tale, while keeping your opponents healthy and alive. Will you be detained in the dungeons or be poisoned while pruning?

Gloomier uses transparent cards, allowing a character’s story—and score—to evolve as cards are stacked upon them. Only the information that's currently showing counts. Modifier cards tell of terrible happenstances and give Characters negative points. Untimely Death cards end a Character's depressing tale. You win if your family is the most miserable when an entire family is killed off.

You don’t have to have any prior experience to play Gloomier, but if you are familiar with Gloom, you’ll find six new Stories and fourteen new Guests that can be used with any edition of Gloom! So come to Hemlock Hall, and see what delightful misery awaits!

Special thanks to ratva, whose mod for the original Gloom was the backbone of this mod.

Is there a way to tell which stories and unwelcome guests are meant to go with each character?

I just came across the Kickstarter and thought I recognised the mod in the demo 😅
I'll add a note into the original tomorrow to point to the Kickstarter as well.
