Following the success of the Mithral Bestseller supplement for fantastical diseases, comes the ultimate toolbox to help you create your own evocative diseases, now for Fantasy Grounds!

This supplement is written by medical students with a love for tabletop roleplaying games. Inspired by the vast array of diseases, and the medieval myths that once surrounded them, we embarked on a mission; to enrich other worlds with fantastical diseases.

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 create their own diseases, fully fleshed out and based on 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 stories you can tell with your diseases are infinite!

In this Fantasy Grounds module, you'll find everything that you need to weave your own disease, including:

  • General guidelines that will help you understand how to design maladies best, in order to excite your players and tell better stories. These include its origins, causes, diagnosis, cure, and most importantly, over 80 mundane and magical symptoms to choose from!
  • Extensive tables full of ideas to help you decide on the details of each disease.
  • Beautiful art and symbols, designed to assist you in the creation stages, by Phil Beckwith of P. B. Publishing himself! 
  • Entertaining notes from the Mad Mage, master of disease crafting and torture, who guides you through his workshop.

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

Rules Edition(s)
Format
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.
