 Spoiler Section (Highlight to Read)
The scenario is designed to be used in a situation where an Investigator has been kidnapped and not recovered. Before the players can search for their missing comrade they are contacted by the police for help finding out the origin of strange marks on the body of a murder victim. Investigating this crime will lead them to a house owned by a group of socially connected cultists (Unconnected to the group the Investigators were originally chasing.) who are using Zombies to dig their way into an underground river. This is the group that has grabbed the missing Investigator. As designed the scenario is intended to end with the missing investigator being rescued just a few seconds too late...

Keeper Comments

  • While the author specifies that the scenario is set in the 1920s, there is nothing stopping a Keeper from setting it either in the Gaslight or Modern periods.
  • Similarly, the author notes that the scenario could be relocated to another location than London with little effort.
