You find yourself summoned by a wizard and sent to search for the sphere, a mysterious artifact which is tearing holes in the fabric of the Multiverse.
A brief overview of the roleplaying aspect in M&M.

When it comes to roleplaying, my motto is "the more, the better". Since Madness&Magic is a single player module, the only interaction the player will experience will be with NPCs, which is vastly different from what you can find in a multiplayer module. You cannot develop your
character the same way, and it's a much more static form of roleplaying. But you can still have fun, hopefully.
I went crazy with dialog options in some cases, drawing inspiration from Planescape Torment - pretty much the greatest game ever in my opinion.
I tried to use all social skills, and then some others which are usually left aside, like taunt.
Note the presence of a [Lie] and [Truth] option. Lying will usually shift your character's alignment toward Chaotic. I implemented choices in conversations but also in quests. There is always at least two solutions to a given quest, sometimes more.
There also are references to my favorite games here and there. For example, the obligatory talking chicken.
The usual question of the motivation of your character is given a central place in the plot, with numerous NPCs wanting to know what is the driving force behind your actions.
