Synopsis

The Investigator is a professor leading a Miskatonic University expedition into a remote part of Canada, the Hanninah valley. The scenario allows a great deal of freedom about the degree of exploration involved, and some areas can only be accessed by random die rolls. A variety of animals, strange creatures and Mythos entities may encounter the party, including Ithaqua. The player decides how far to push their luck in search of knowledge and the rewards discovery can bring.

Keeper Comments

Includes extended rules on survival tasks like swimming and boating.

The scenario is dangerous, and features some quite graphic violence, which may be unsuitable for young readers.

The randomness of the original game means some areas can be inaccessible regardless of planning.
