MOD (Virtual Tabletop)

The best selling The Malady Codex: The Guide to Diseases has now been released for the Fantasy Grounds virtual tabletop!

Deep in each civilization’s roots, there are myths, remedies, and folklore, all revolving around the ailments that affect its people. When each Dungeon Master wants to expand on the details of the societies that unfold before their very eyes, tools that spice up the process become a vital weapon. This supplement will hopefully become one of them, as DMs become inspired by the grim, epic or mundane conditions of the human body and mind.

Do not underestimate diseases. Part of the Dungeon Master’s art is to be able to stir feelings up in their players, and few human conditions could accomplish that better. Used as a way to advance a storyline, to expand a character arc or to create conflict, the following stories can serve you well!

In this fantasy grounds module, you'll find 11 fully detailed diseases, including:

  • The Druid's Curse, The Mad Mage's Virus, the Mindflayer Network, Talona's Curse and the infamous ISTD.
  • Details on the origins, symptoms, and cures for all these maladies.
  • Tips on how to implement each one in your games, making your life just a bit easier.
  • New NPCs, monsters and items to challenge and reward your players with.
  • useful table to consult when deciding what specific spells affect what disease.
  • visual representation chart of the progression of the Mad Mage's Virus.
  • Pins to the Fantasy Grounds Dungeon Master's Guide module to quickly access tables in that supplement.

Give your worlds a touch of fantastical realism and watch as your players dive deep into the stories you create with these tools!

Under druid's curse, it says "Of all the diseases in this codex, there is none ore mysterious. Perhaps the deadliest of them all, this is a disease whose origins are lost in time. Let me tell you the tale of the fabled druid..."

I am pretty sure you meant to write more, not ore.

Nice catch! This would have been 1-1 from the PDF. I'll pass it along to the authors and get it fixed in the FG version.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
