The Book of Broken Dreams presents a wide assortment of rules for adding realistic effects of stress, personality, and insanity to your d20 game. With the Book of Broken Dreams you can answer questions like:
How well does a character sleep after watching his friends get dismembered and eaten alive? The stench of blood, the shrieks of death, and the ghastly grip of fear - can he get those horrible visions out of his mind or do they weigh him down with grief, nightmares, and flashbacks?
The answer can be found in Chapter 1 of the Book of Broken Dreams.
How can a DM create interesting and believable NPCs that are always unique and new? What makes people behave as they do? What are the "rules" for personality?
Chapter 2 of the Book of Broken Dreams applies concepts from modern psychology to role-playing, providing all the guidelines you need. Details on paranoid, avoidant, anti-social and other personality types are provided with a system of primary and secondary traits, allowing for thousands of different combinations of personality traits.
What really happens when a character becomes insane?
He might start eating broken glass, or become demented. He might suffer from delusions or or a severe personality disorder. He might even commit suicide!
Chapter 3 of the Book of Broken Dreams covers all the possibilities of insanity in detail.
What is it like to be swept up in a riot? What happens to characters that get trampled by a panicking mob? What goes on in jury rooms? How do group members exert influence and power over other members?
The answers to these and many other questions about group dynamics are provided in Chapter 4 along with dozens of examples and plot ideas to help you integrate these concepts into your next creative project.
