Comments to Keepers about this scenario; Possibly how to run it successfully. Keep general DISCUSSION on the talk page.
- The details of just where the scenario is set are kept vague to allow the Keeper to easily slot it into a campaign. The default time period is the 1990s though there is nothing stopping the scenario being modified to fit into an earlier time period.
- As with any scenario involving a friend of the Investigators, the NPC should be introduced at an earlier point of the campaign to provide the Investigators with a strong motivation to follow up on the disappearance.
- A follow up campaign could be created based on following up the origin of the box sent to the first person to die.
