I was once hired to write a concept for a “panic room escape” just as Escape Rooms were becoming a new thing. I wrote the following brief:

  • A gothic setting with a backstory to escape from a locked room in Leaven Molt Castle set in the year 1878.
  • All characters and names invented by myself.
  • List of props required which included amongst other things, laminated notes, incantation pieces and a cryptex.
  • Placement and setup for the props along with timings.
  • Hints and answers (for the game masters)

It was a very fun thing to do and I’d be happy to replicate again.
