Note: This product is a part of the Gothic Campaign Compendium along with several others.
Mad scientists are a classic horror trope, and The Mad Doctor''s Formulary brings them to life in a terrifyingly evocative way, focusing on all the awful possibilities of non-magical yet murderous medicine, sadistic surgery, and gruesome grafting. There are echoes of magic within these pages, as we explore how the cruel science of chirurgery and replicate or counter more common magical means of corrupting or altering body and mind alike with procedures like Implant Psychic Trigger, Lobotomize, Stimulate Adrenal Cortex, and Install Kill-Switch.
Included within is a grimoire-tome, Regarding the Clockwork of Capillaries, explicating the application of chirurgical techniques not only to surgery with or without anesthetic, but also to the creation of chirurgical constructs. Implant a cyberphrenic tadpole and establish a subtle telepathic relay with your victim''s mind, or simply command your cranial dissectibot to strap them down and have them open wide; each construct''s vividly horrific illustration stands alone on its own page for optimal player display. Tell them not to worry; it won''t hurt... much...
