    FMs about depression, madness, suicide etc.

    Could someone recommend me some good, heavily psychological missions that include themes of melancholy, madness, or suicide? I remember that Lady Rowena's "The Seven Sisters" was excellent in this context. I'm not looking for cliché depictions of mental health problems (so no "shocking" hallucinations and things like that), though.

    I ask this question because I was thinking about creating a three-mission campaign, in which Garrett traverses through a sorrowful town struck by the plague of an inexplicable melancholy. Major themes would include: declaration of the Hammerite High Priest that the Builder does not exist (and the subsequent mass suicides of the Hammerites), a rich nobleman whose depressed daughter went missing (and he hires Garrett to find her), a charlatan selling fake cures for melancholy, dysfunctional families, guards drinking themselves to death (because they can no longer bear the reality as it is), Garrett's existential crisis etc. My main inspiration are "The Seven Sisters", DrK's "Rocksbourg 1-3" and "Death's Cold Embrace" FMs, but I also have a lot of original ideas. I don't have much experience with DromED, but I would love to create my own FM at some point in my life. Let me know what do you think about my idea.

    Cardia's FTM mission is somewhat about depression: female to man transition.

    This I would replace with "the Builder has abandoned the town". I imagine saying god is not real would create dissidents. Then again, that's another idea, priest has lost it and the people don't know who to turn to.

    Yes, "FTM life" is filled with lots of dramatic realities. It's like a good French drama movie.

    I recall a mansion mission where there is a room that you could not access, it's black on map, but you eventually go there and there is ghost girl that tells you a story. Don't remember the name, but it's a immersive story.
