While the Investigators who are passengers aboard the flight are being interrogated by the authorities, they notice one of the passengers exert a strange influence over the authorities.

Comments

  • The author quotes a line from David Bowie song It’s No Game (link) which he mistakenly attributes to the David Bowie song Diamond Dogs.

Keeper Comments

  • The scenario is intended as a first adventure in an ongoing 1980s campaign. However there is nothing stopping a Keeper from setting it in the 1990s.
  • Both tomes are described as being badly damaged.
  • This is another scenario where the Investigators need to be careful what they do, because the law will not look kindly on mayhem.
