Contents

There are monsters beneath the earth. You cannot fight them. You cannot run from them. And they are closer than you think.

In a forgotten corner of Northern England, between the rolling hills and tranquil dales nestles a village plagued by terrible secrets and subterranean horrors.

Every 119 years the village of Manesty is torn apart, its inhabitants massacred. It happened in 1697. It happened in 1816. Now it’s 1935 and horrific events have been set in motion. Swimming through the soil beneath the village are loathsome creatures waiting, impatiently, to rise above the earth and reclaim the land they believe is theirs and kill anyone who stands in their way, including the Investigators.

However, as with all the best Mythos adventures, not all is as it seems. The Investigators must uncover the mystery that has killed many and doomed others in the tiny village while struggling to keep their lives and the last vestiges of their sanity intact.

"You might be interested whether the places I have mentioned actually exist. Most do. Keswick is a pretty town in the Lake District, popular for walking holidays. Castlerigg Circle is nearby, although the Blackstone Hotel and Keswick Hospital are fictional. Manesty is a genuine and tiny village, although I have based its grey-slate buildings on nearby Grange. Both Derwent Water and Maiden Moor are real, but the Maiden House is not. Everything is more pleasant in real life than I have described it. The monsters under the soil are not, I hope, real."
