Synopsis

Late one night while working in a Paris medical school, the investigator gets lost in the halls and stumbles into an area where samples of dangerous diseases are stored. The investigator finds someone going through the samples with a microscope, working alone and violating several safety protocols. The person claims to be a Japanese student of the school working for Dr. Jarmon. If the investigator confronts the person, he knocks over a flaming Bunsen burner and flees. The investigator must then explain the affair to the faculty or face disciplinary action.

Campaigns / Scenarios: Les 5 supplices

Comments

 Spoiler Section (Highlight to Read)

The scenario introduces a single investigator to the longer Les 5 supplices campaign. The story is intended to take one to two hours to complete. At its conclusion, the investigator has met a young Shiro Ishii, a man while will become a notorious Japanese war criminal for his medical experiments. Likewise, the investigator gains some familiarity with the plague germs Ishii is after, setting the stage for a similar confrontation later in the campaign. The historical Shiro Ishii studied medicine in both France and Germany, so the scenario may also take place in the latter country.
