This document has been created with the help

of the BGG community in an attempt to correct


some gameplay problems that have been identified
in the scenarios of Mansions of Madness. This
document contains revisions to many of the cards
that may cause a scenario to become unbalanced
(or even broken), or even just un-fun. There are
also an assortment of other enhanced components
that when used will hopefully make your games
even more enjoyable.
Many thanks especially to BGG users salty53,
for the scenario breakdowns on which most of
the revised mechanics in this mod are based,
Hinnyboy for constantly making me think,
Matildadad for providing the templates used to
create the cards, and Gnome01 for the thumbs!

General Rule
Changes
When playing Mansions of Madness using
components from this file, the following rule
changes are in effect for all games:

Keeper Actions
Keeper action cards now fall into three types:
Normal Actions are the same as in the base
game rules; the keeper may use them as many
times as he likes without restriction providing he
has the threat to pay for them.
Restricted Actions may be performed as many
times as the keeper likes, but only once per round
on each target of the action.

Diminishing Actions may be performed as


many times as the keeper wishes, but the cost
in threat increases by 1 for each time it is used
beyond the first in a single round (so +1 threat the
second time it is used, +2 the third time, etc).

Event Cards
All players may read all Event cards before the
scenario begins, if they wish. The keeper may
read through the deck of Event cards at any time
while the game is in progress.
Additionally, Event 5 no longer ends the game
directly in any of the scenarios. Instead, most
Event 5 cards now contain an effect that will
remain in play until the end of the game (either
the investigators win or the keeper wins by
completing their objective).
If in the unlikely event that both the investigators
and the keeper complete their objectives
simultaneously (or are unable to complete their
objectives), the game is considered a draw.

Clue Cards & Skill


Points
Whenever an investigator uncovers a clue card
while exploring, all investigators receive 1 skill
point.

Starting Items
Investigators may not use other investigators
starting items (though may still pick them up and
carry them if need be).

Investigator Death

Stun Tokens

Whenever any investigator is killed before the


objective is revealed, the keeper immediately
gains bonus threat equal to the number of
investigators.

Stun tokens now have the following effects for


monsters and investigators:

Monster Secrecy
Investigator players may not look under the base
of a monster until it is killed or otherwise removed
from play.

Lock Cards
Investigators must reveal and resolve any Lock
cards in rooms that they are attempting to either
enter or exit (meaning it is now possible for
investigators to get locked in).

Fire
The following three rules are added to the standard
rules regarding fire:
Whenever a fire and a darkness token are
present in the same room together, the effects of
the darkness no longer apply (you can place the
fire token on top of the darkness token to remind
you of this). The darkness token remains on the
board however, and it will continue to have its
effect if ever the fire token is removed.
If ever a zombie ends its turn in a room on
fire, after it has taken its damage as normal, it
becomes a flaming zombie. Place a fire token on
the zombie to denote this. A flaming zombie gains
-1 to its horror rating and +1 to its damage rating.
The zombie is not affected by the fire token in any
other way.
A room may contain more than one fire token
(though not more fire tokens than the number of
spaces that make up the room, as stated on the
Pyromania card). A figure ending its turn in a
room on fire takes an amount of damage equal to
the number of fire tokens in the room (instead of
the standard 2 damage as in the original rules).

Investigators with a stun token receive 1 fewer


Movement Step during their turn and suffer a -2
penalty to all attributes. If an investigator receives
a stun token during his turn, he immediately loses
1 Movement Step, if he has any remaining.
Monsters with a stun token move 1 fewer space
during their turn and suffer a +/-2 penalty to all die
rolls made during combat. Monsters discard stun
tokens at the end of the Monster Attack Step.

Component
Limitations
All status effect tokens (such as darkness and fire)
are considered limited. If ever a player must place
one on the board and there are none in the supply,
the player must take one from elsewhere on the
board to use.

Suggested
Rule Changes
These rule changes are suggested but not
obligatory. Use them if your group agrees with
the philosophy behind their intent.
In any game of Mansions of Madness - whether
using these revised rules or the base rules - some
choices are simply better than others and may
lead to players always choosing the best of any
particular set of options, leading to less variety
between games. If you think it might be more
interesting to see a greater variety of options
being played out, with the players adjusting
their strategies to the strengths of what they
are presented with rather than just choosing the
superior option every time, use these two rules:

Random Story
Choices
At the beginning of the game, the story choice
markers for the scenario are placed face down
and mixed up. The keeper then selects his story
choices randomly.

Random Trait Cards


At the beginning of the game, each investigator
player randomises the two physical trait cards for
his investigator and selects one without looking.
He then does the same for his investigators
mental trait cards.

Mythos Cards
This variant is for those who find the constant
interruption of Mythos cards an annoyance
and/or find that the Mythos cards create
unthematic situations when played to interrupt an
investigators turn (for example, a Mythos card
stating that an investigator is exploring a room
when in fact they are just passing through it).
Unless the Mythos card specifies a specific time
when it should be played (i.e, Play when an
investigator attempts to cast a spell..., etc), the
keeper may now play Mythos cards only:

During his own turn; all requirements on the


card must still be fulfilled, and the keeper spends
threat to play the card, as usual. Only one Mythos
card may be played on each investigator during
the keepers turn. Any effects on Mythos cards
that refer to this turn refer to the investigators
upcoming turn.
At the beginning of an Explore action; again,
requirements must be fulfilled, but the keeper gets
to play the card for free. One card may be played
at the beginning of each Explore action (regardless
of whether that investigator had a Mythos card
played on him/her during the keepers turn, or
whether the investigator somehow receives more
than one Explore action in a turn). The effects
of the Mythos card are carried out before any
exploration cards in the room are revealed. If the
effects of the Mythos card mean that the room can
then not be explored (for example, the Mythos
card makes the investigator gain a horror, followed
by a Panic trauma, meaning the investigator is
no longer in the room), the Explore action is still
considered spent.

ScenarioSpecific Rule
Changes
The following pages contain overlays to replace
certain sections in the Investigator and Keeper
Guides for each scenario. You can either keep
these as separate sheets, or you can print them on
to label sheets, cut them out, and stick them into
the Guides in the correct places.

Special Rules

Investigators may use the action on the Torch card without


discarding it.

Special Rules
This scenario may only be played if there are two or more
investigator players.
Investigators may attack each other as if they were humanoid
monsters. The keeper may not use Uncontrollable Urges to make
an investigator attack another investigator with a spell.
If the keeper hands an investigator a face down Mythos card, that
investigator may look at it but may not share this information with
other players. The card is revealed when the investigator dies.
Whenever an investigator explores a room, the keeper takes the
exploration cards, looks at them, then passes them to the investigator
face down. Investigators must keep any cards in their possession
face down (though may look at those cards themselves at any time)
and may not tell other players what face down cards they hold. A
card is only turned face up when it is used for the first time (cards
that provide a continuous bonus are revealed the first time the bonus
becomes relevant, such as when an attribute test is performed).
Investigators may still exchange cards as normal, with the card
retaining its orientation for the exchange.
Clue cards are never revealed nor may they be read out (though they
may still be exchanged) - the finder of the clue may only state where
he believes the next clue to be located.
The keeper may not reveal what is written on the Objective card
unless a rule specifically allows him to.
