Saw some love for this idea on Tumblr, if you haven't seen this show some Lovecraft nods in it.

The current big bad is the Gargoyle King and they are reliving D&D paranoia as G&G, Griffins and Gargoyles.

Anyhow, this and Archie's Weird Mysteries scream a mod for this I think.

Not being graphically inclined, I used the Tumblr versions of characters and some current CW fad buttons to relabel a few locations.

I made The Black Cave the Fallout shelter
Velma's to Pops
Silver Twilight Lodge is Southside Serpents
Administration is Riverdale High School

Gargoyle King as in Tumblr mod causes the persistent effect of any failed Luck spawning a cultists token, The Ghoulies.

Joining Silver Twilight Lodge now is joing Southside Serpents, get a free Serpent jacket and switchblade. In 6 players, my added Sabrina and Harvey can't join being from Greendale.

Locations as original just renamed, but G&G manual at the Fallout shelter worth 4 clue. (One Time Find)
Pop's needs a gambling speakeasy under it.Toying with gambling mechanics here.

Love triangle mechanic, once per turn Jughead must pick one of the trio Archie/Veronica/Betty to reroll a successful dice check. First check then must be rerolled

Parent effect mechanic, Betty's mom is able once per turn to allow a failed check reroll of any character at any time, once per turn only

I use a Gargoyle King token and Mom token to represent these above effects.

Figure objective of G&G and the Gargoyle King is to open gates, so required gates open for victory is auto win for him.
G&G being a true nefarious game with players trying for ascension, but actually causing gates to open. Riverdale's teens inadvertently causing the apocalypse playing G&G.

Working to refine, but initial thoughts anyhow.

Check out the other vision on Tumblr too

You could even print/relabel character cards with any CW photo grab

Under files, the old school version of the map is brilliant. Could cuf/paste easy to change names formally

Going to redo entire board, CW has pretty good stock photos. Thinking movement loop of retro board with detective style graphic plots to locations

Riverdale is a dark and edgy show loosely based on characters from the warm and fuzzy, family friendly, Archie comic strip.
