Ravings of the Mad Leper


Leprous Harry reassesses his cyphered manuscript amidst a handful of his occult implements.

Lo the furious mind of Harry, a leprous madman whose insanity is beyond recognition. Here lay his ravings of strange worlds filled with enigmatic characters and peculiar stories. Do mind the step, as the descent is steep down this well of folly where no light can be shed.

Therein you will find a bonanza of player options, mostly related to character classes and subclasses. Revel in the thrill of trying superficially tested supplements, or feel free to banish them to the ignominious pit of obscurity from whence they came, at your dungeon master's convenience, but understand you do so at your own risk!


Ravings of the Mad Leper is a labor of love, years in the making, consisting of 79 pages of player options of all sorts: 29 subclasses across all official classes (listed below), 15 artificer infusions, 3 fighting styles, 4 metamagic options, 1 pact boon, 5 eldritch invocations, and 15 spells. It is designed so that every option is relevant, and none is stronger than official published material. The book's mechanics relies heavily on the improved game mechanics of Xanathar's Guide to Everything and Tasha's Cauldron of Everything.

You can find a free sample of the book (a complete subclass) right here!
Seriously though, try it! It's free - everybody likes free stuff.


"79 pages, that's quite a lot of stuff, right? Especially for $7.99! It's a good price for a lot of pages."
- Splinterverse

"Though Ravings of the Mad Leper lacks a cohesive theme, the nearly two dozen new subclasses are well-balanced and include several stand-out additions."
- RogueWatson

Excellent! Happy to hear that! One of my favorite parts of making these videos is that it is early enough in these books' lives that I can maybe help if something about their catalog pages is off. Glad you found some useful info in the video and that you are watching. Thanks!

I haven't considered providing implementations of my book's content for virtual table top systems.
I have doubts as to whether it would be forbidden by DMsGuild publication rules, considering we aren't allowed to publish the same content anywhere else.
In any case, I am unfamiliar with Fantasy Grounds' system and I doubt I could provide a timely implementation of the whole book.
However, if you need any support in understanding the book's mechanics, it would be an honor to help you in any way I can.

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.
