Synopsis

The Mission was no ordinary Christian mission, but the work of a group of Spanish mystics, the cult of Santa Maria de la Sombra Segunda. Overreaching themselves, they attracted the attention of both Nodens and Nyarlathotep and were wiped out. The winged figures are nightgaunts, sent to seal the warp.

Keeper Comments

The scenario gives the investigators a passive role, with little to do but observe and document the activity. The Mythos activity in progress is more or less benevolent, as they're basically tidying up the mess left by the cult. Trying to attack the nightgaunts is not only counterproductive, but dangerous; even if the investigators beat them off, a group of shantaks turns up for revenge.
