Gaslight Adventure Framework 2: Madness by Proxy


System: Low Fantasy Gaming (Gaslight Setting), but easily adaptable to any d20 ruleset.

Target PCs: 4 to 6 heroes, Level 1 to 3

Maps: Yes

Pre-Gens: No

Run Time: One or two 4-hour sessions

Madness By Proxy presents a standalone adventure for the Gaslight setting compatible with the Low Fantasy Gaming system by Pickpocket Press. It is an investigative scenario, pitting the heroes not against clear-cut enemies of demonic nightmare, but against the even more insidious blackness of the human soul. Can the heroes uncover the crimes of the past to bestow justice in the present, or will their deeds only make things worse for the future?

Included in this adventure is the first set of rules for including Blackfog in your campaign. The Blackfog is a sinister bank of roiling vapors that arise whenever the darkness is complete. It brings terror, madness, and panic to those caught in it, and sometimes takes them altogether. 

If you enjoy the Gaslight setting, be sure to check out the Gaslight Toolkit to convert your standard Low Fantasy Gaming campaign to the Fourth Age. Also, full writeups for currently released character classes customized for the setting can be found in Volume I of the Gaslight Character Class Pack

Happy Adventuring, and...leave the lights burning.

Product Information
File Size:
7.66 MB
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.
