Synopsis

 Spoiler Section (Highlight to Read)
Kevin Anderson had a horrific experience in the dying days of the Great War. Never fully recovered, his days at the Miskatonic Veterans Home have been disturbed by the realization that what happened back then has never really ended and that what he escaped may be coming for him. The scenario uses a structure similar to that in a Tale of Terror or Traveller Patron Encounter and presents options for what is chasing him (Ghouls, a vengeful comrade, the strange products of German science or simply his conscience.).

  • This is a scenario like The Haunting or Edge of Darkness that can serve as an effective way to bring an Investigator group together for the first time.
