This Discord Has Ghosts in It is a game of entering and exploring a haunted house filled with ghosts. That haunted house is a Discord. 

In this game, players are either investigators or ghosts

investigators can only speak

ghosts can only type

The Discord is split up into rooms of a haunted house. Ghosts haunt rooms and type their horror into them. Investigators explore each room all while narrating the horror to all players. Ghosts will reveal parts of themselves by creating new rooms, inspiring horror, and making the house a labyrinth. 

This game is for two to twelve players, played over the course of one to three hours.
