When Madness Calls (Fantasy Grounds)

MOD (Virtual Tabletop)


Now for Fantasy Grounds!




(From the Participants of the ENnie award winner for Best Online Content - Silver - RPG Writer Workshop)

"No other person in Faerun except Hubert Pierre Lorentz has made such a huge breakthrough in writing fictional horror story. His vivid, grotesque, and terrifying descriptions evoked the sense of fear to those who read it. But after years of tenure, he has somehow disappeared from the multiverse.

Only his books are the reminder that this man once existed. Because of this, the adventurers have been hired (or took it upon themselves) to find H.P. Lorentz.

Lorentz’s last known location is his mansion, somewhere in Dessarin Valley. With that, the adventurers will have to uncover not just the truth about Lorentz’s disappearance, but also something dark and sinister that might invoke madness and destroy their sanity."

  • Stand-alone adventure 
  • Filler adventure for ongoing campaign

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.
