Gloria Goldberg is an Investigator from the Mansions of Madness base game.


The Truth Is Stranger Than FictionEdit

Ever since she was a young girl, Gloria has been plagued by visions of monsters dwelling in strange, nightmarish places. She eventually learned to overcome the terror that accompanied these visions by writing them into stories.

As the years went by, her stories launched her into a successful career as an author, but the more she wrote, the more extreme the visions became. She has come to believe that the images she sees are not her imagination, but rather clairvoyant insight into the world of the supernatural. She has resolved to use this insight to investigate the realm of the supernatural and exorcise these nightmares from the world as well as her subconscious.

  • The artwork for Gloria Goldberg was originally used for the card "Arcane Initiate" from Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game. There, she is depicted as a villainous cultist with mystical knowledge, rather than an investigative author, as Mansions of Madness and Arkham Horror portray her.
