I may be putting together a game for a new group of players soon, and in the interests of making things as straight forward (and painless) as possible, I'm looking for a published scenario that fits the following criteria:
1) suitable for 3-5 investigators
2) set in the 20s/30s
3) can be completed in one evening session (assume 2.5 - 3 hours of game time) with players new to the system
4) has a nice bunch of pre-gen characters, ideally with a bit of background (but not pages of info) that ties them into the scenario.
5) delivers a good taste of mythos gribble weirdness ( I'm sure most of the published adventures do this, but I believe some are more mythos-y than others, and I'd definitely like it to be a mythos game rather than just a ghost story, you know?)
So, thems the criteria - can anyone think of a good scenario that ticks all the boxes?
