This scenario pits the player characters against a group of malicious Camside children, unknowingly in the service of the Great Old One Eihort. Led by a living mannequin composed of Eihort’s Brood, the children engage in pranks and abusive behaviour, and quickly accelerate to murder as they prepare the way for Eihort. Eihort’s purpose in this adventure is to take advantage of a meteor shower and thereby loosen its restrictions to the magical labyrinth in which it has been confined for eons. It will not be free, but if all goes right it will be freer.
