Players should not read any further.
Bostonian stage magician Garlock the Great has a nefarious and cunning plan to obtain a rare occult scroll by tricking his female assistant into unknowingly making the Unspeakable Promise to Hastur on his behalf during a performance in Arkham. His plan goes awry when instead of being killed during the performance (thus fulfilling the promise), the assistant survives and goes on to transform into an Unspeakable Possessor, nightly killing hobos and other nightlife from Arkham's streets. The Investigators are enmeshed in this situation either as discoverers of the scroll delivered as part of the promise, or as the ones seeking to put a stop to the endless procession of murders.
