Keeper Comments

This scenario is suitable for 2 to 4 beginner investigators, but the challenges can be increased for more experienced players by raising the number of antagonists. It can be played in a single session, and the location can be easily moved to integrate it into an existing campaign. While set in the 1920s, the scenario could be moved to the modern era (the Keeper is advised to have no or very poor cell phone reception available at Squatters Lake).
