It’s a MAD SCIENCE Monday!


We’re not QUITE ready for the return of MYTHIC MONDAY – Turns out I spent too much time creating Polynesian and Australian magic items, but Mythic Monsters: South Pacific is in layout now and should be ready soon!

So instead, we shift gears, and levers, and circuits, and awesome eletrical things that go BZZTZAP!!! Because it’s time for the Mad Scientist Playtest PDF for 5th Edition… and did we mention it’s FREE? You can download it right now at DrivethruRPG!

For Science!

Mad scientists are common enemies and antagonists, but why not protagonists as well? Now they can be using the mad scientist class to build dastardly villainous PCs for Fifth Edition OGL! This class appears in the Book of Exalted Darkness Kickstarter, ending this Saturday June 17th—give this free PDF a look, check out the project page for 2 more (the Evil Primer and Killing the Golden Twins adventure module), and consider pledging or sharing the book with your fellow gamers!

PS: Over 120 backers unlocked the do-gooder Book of Celestial Heroes for folks not keen on playing evil adventurers!
What’s in the Mad Scientist Playtest PDF:
  • New Attributes: Sanctity and Sin, the mechanical representation of good and evil in Book of Exalted Darkness
  • The mad scientist class, a curious spellcaster that weaponizes technology, builds drones, lobs grenades, and enacts insane experiments
  • Four class archetypes including the nefarious evil engineer, gruesome fleshworker, explosive trickster, and blasphemous unholy technologist
  • 15 new scientific gadgets for the mad scientist class
  • The Dissectrinator, a terrifying chirurgical construct (Challenge 5)
  • A pair of chirurgical procedures for fleshworker mad scientists
Please let us know what you think about the Mad Scientist Playtest PDF at bookofexalteddarkness@gmail.com. Thanks!
