Magical Murder Mansion

Selected Option:

Magical Murder Mansion is a challenging funhouse dungeon in the style of Tomb of Horrors and Tegel Manor. It's designed for mid-level characters in systems that can deal with moderate lethality, magical traps, bizzare and unique treasure, and improvised problem-solving techniques.

Some of the traps in classic funhouse dungeons seem like jokes designed for the module’s author and the GM to share, with the poor players left frustrated and baffled. I’ve tried to make Magical Murder Mansion entertaining for everyone; even the deathtraps and surprises should get an joyful “oh no, I can’t believe we walked into that one” from the players. The GM knows it’s a trap. The players know it’s a trap. But someone’s got to open that door.

This module contains 90 rooms, 20 unique monsters, 10 black-and-white illustrations, a GM and a player map, advice on running and disarming traps, and myriad tempting treasures.

From the author of Kidnap the Archpriest, Tomb of the Serpent Kings, and Epochrypha.

Does this product come with equal treatment as the Tomb of the Serpent Kings in terms of usability? Specifically, does it come with a map that has all the information necessary to run on it, like in TotSK? TotSK has the best write-up I have ever seen and makes it really easy to run (everything necessary on one page and nice to have details in text). Is this done in similar fashion? The maps I see in the preview have only room names.

It's definitely designed with at-table utility in mind. Because of the nature of the map and the number of rooms involved, it wasn't possible to create a one-page summary of the dungeon, but the map is divided into easy-to-use sections, with mini-maps next to the room text for each 2-page spread.

Thanks for the reply! I see on the preview the treatment on pages 6/7, I suppose this is what you mean. It's very hard for me to run from a paragraph of text though compared to the amazing notes you did in the TotSK. With every module I run I have to do that myself (compress a paragraph or more of text into a few lines of notes) and TotSK was the first module I saw that did for me and I was super impressed.

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.
