The Corpse That Love Built

The Corpse That Love Built cover image

The town of Portnelle is living in a state a fear. Several citizens have been abducted – some never to been seen again, while others are found as corpses, often with missing limbs.

When a senile town priest warns that he’s received a vision that the geriatric recluse Dr. Lotrin Von Geisterblut is behind the abductions, there are many who do not believe the accusations. However, when the town is set upon by wicked fiends foretold in his vision, attitudes quickly change, and swords are raised. Perhaps it’s time to storm the castle after all…

This level 2 adventure is a story of Gothic horror which pits the characters against monstrosities created by an ancient madman. Will the characters be able to survive the macabre horrors found in the laboratories that spawned The Corpse that Love Built!


OK, so this is not published as a Thick Skull Adventures product, but I wrote it and am very proud of it, so I’m hoping you guys check it out.

The Corpse That Love Built was released as Goodman Game’s 2018 Halloween Module. It is designed for 4-6 Level-2 characters. The thematic elements of the adventure give homage to classic horror films such as Frankenstein, The Brain that Wouldn’t Die, and The Mummy’s Curse, but liberally infused with modern, visceral horror.
