Frankenstien's Diary- creating an awsome game handout
« on: October 13, 2010, 05:11:15 AM »
So i'm goin thru my old d20 modern notes and i dusted off a half finished adventure focusing on the PC's finding, battling and hopefully defeating a modern day mad scientist and his creation. Turns out this nut job found a chunk of Victor's works, combined with notes of other historical figures that attempted or perfected his work, like Tesla maybe even Ben Franklin. So i thought it would be an awesome prop to drop into my players laps.

A while ago i found a book called "The diary of Victor Frankenstein" and it's incredibly helpful and will make up a chunk of the prop itself. But it's mostly mad ramblings, my problem is i need to find more scientific or pseudo-magical images and scribblings to fluff it out. Anyone have ideas? or know of some websites with some good stuff?

When i'm all done, i'm gonna age the paper, distress an old leather book and assemble what i'm hoping will be a mostly authentic looking piece of maddening history. lol

Wow... that killed an hour or two of my day... That is really fascinating...

Sounds like the makings of a gay porn film.
