Episode 1275: The Downward Spiral


Some games have specific rules and mechanics for characters going insane. Particularly horror based games, such as Call of Cthulhu and others, in which exposure to horrors beyond mortal ken can twist people's minds to the point of breaking. These rules are naturally most often used to track the deteriorating mental stability of PCs - but never forget that NPCs can be seriously unbalanced as well.
