The Misplace: A Psychological Horror-Inspired Plane of Existence


"My name was Ado. I was saved. I hope to remain so.

My name was Ado. I looked back. I hope to remain.

My name was. I. remain.


The Misplace is a psychological horror-inspired, 5th-edition compatible supplemetary plane of existence, built to be slotted into any campaign where your players want (or deserve) to have their world turned on its head. The realm itself is a horrific interplanar void, a residual crevice between the seat-cushions of reality where things that are lost, either by mishap, by malice, or the ravages of time, may slip down to - the place where all things, finally, fade. Wracked with memory-wiping storms and creatures that smell and hunt meaning itself like blood, survival within The Misplace is near impossible, making any expedition within its Depths a perilous task, one that risks losing yourself entirely.

This supplement serves as a guide to realms of The Misplace, offering a wealth of terrifying and intriguing creatures and NPCs to encounter, alongside a range of memory-threatening mechanics to engage with, acting ideally as a sandbox within which you can toss the discarded histories and details of your own worlds, for players to explore (or run away from). The Misplace can be used either as a short expedition to retrieve a valuable item, lost character(s), or pertinent piece of information, and/or as a larger, pervasive element of your world, though ideally functions for a 5th-7th level party.

This project was created as part of an MA Publishing Dissertation, complementing a wider research aim into exploring the difficulties of independent content creation and publication within the TTRPG industry. The Misplacis entirely human made, its creation as much to highlight the incredible talent and creative work of its contributors, your considered downloading of this PDF and spreading of their efforts incredibly appreciated. The first published work of author and editor Finley Overland, this PDF is ever-growing, with revisions and additions to come, following further testing and future feedback. Responses, suggestions, and any other notes are readily welcomed and appreciated.

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.
