Deep Madness Board Game - Tour Guide of scenarios, book, campaigns

Deep Madness Scenario Chronology v7

Oct 2020; 21 total scenarios (canon) + 1 fan campaign (4 scenarios)
Seth Lindberg and Phil Blake

Starting place for Deep Madness:
·       (optional) Read the Shattered Seas novel by Byron Leavitt
o   Many key characters in the novel are colored purple in the table
·       Note: the Chronology Table below is not necessarily the suggested order of play
·       For newcomers, the suggested playthrough order of Expansions is:
o   Drowning in the Depths (tutorial scenario, provided in Faces of the Sphere/Profundum)
o   Core Box (scenarios 1-8)
o   Endless Nightmares (3 scenarios, any order) & Uncounted Horrors (1 scenario)
o   Other scenarios/campaigns

 

Chronology Table Scope:
·       The original intent of the table was to organize the chronology of the canon scenarios to further narrative gameplay.
·       We include a representative fan made campaign (led by Phil Blake and Fabio Faletti) to highlight the community involvement which included feedback/support from Diemension Game (Byron Leavitt sourced PDFs from their master files, DG gave permissions to use their art, and DG encouraged them). Check out the Facebook group, link below.
·       Fans are set on creating expansions focused on the Epic monsters (colored red in the table) that do not have scenarios. Stay tuned.
