My gaming group has finished all of the official MoM scenarios a couple of times, and have been looking for some good custom fan-made ones to try out. However, I'm not even sure where to start looking, or how to tell if a given scenario is any good. Where do I find good custom scenarios for the game, and/or how do I tell if a scenario is good?

Could you define "goodness" more specifically? Are you looking for challenging scenarios that require close teamwork to succeed at, or easier scenarios that encourage random exploration, or scenarios with lots of moving parts and/or phases, or simply high-quality horror writing? – Paul Marshall May 23 '14 at 21:04
"Good" is really as close as I can get. All those sound really interesting in their own ways :) I guess What I DON'T want are scenarios that are pure monster-killin' dungeon crawling or scenarios that are broken somehow, like many of the official ones have been. – Ravn May 23 '14 at 21:29

I would advise that you check out the Mansions of Madness page on BoardGameGeek. Specifically, I would look in the Files section to find more custom scenarios. Although I'm not clear how your group would define "good", a reasonable way of evaluating the good and interesting scenarios is to see how many Thumbs Up each File has been given. A quick way to determine the most popular entries is to sort on the "Hot" rating of each file.

Please note that not all the Files listed are scenarios. Several files are player aids and reference sheets. Also the site supports multiple languages so some scenarios may exist that are written in a non-English language. A quick perusal of the Files shows several user created custom scenarios have fairly good ratings (20+ Thumbs Up).
