Storyline

Cure foul disease in a medieval fantasy tale of swords and surgery! Wield poultice and potion against a sleeping sickness that threatens the realm.

Mask of the Plague Doctor is a 409,000-word interactive novel by Peter Parrish, where your choices control the story. It’s entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

The town of Thornback Hollow is under quarantine. Its people are unable to sleep, tormented by a disease known as the Waking Death, and the infection is spreading. At the orders of the Crown, Baron Osbert Morlond’s levied soldiers besiege the gates. The summons have been issued. Plague doctors in the vicinity must respond by law, or face the Crown’s justice.

You are one of these masked physicians. Can the town’s sickness be cured? Or will you be forced to find an escape route, as the creeping infection proves impossible to contain? Are you focused on medicine, intent on curing this plague above all else? Or is this cauldron of political unrest impossible not to stir? The townsfolk share whispers of a malevolent power. Can it be harnessed to your ambitions?
