Synopsis

This lengthy scenario begins in Arkham, but very quickly departs on a globe-trotting adventure in pursuit of a possessed MU student (and son of a US Senator) who is hell-bent on performing a ritual in an obscure part of Turkey. The section in Arkham focuses on a prequel scene in which the Investigators attend the party at which an "innocent" session with an ouija board leads to the student's possession, and the mystery of two crimes committed weeks later by the alien possessor. The first of these involves a murder committed apparently by a disembodied arm; the second a bank robbery in which the perpertrator was apparently invisible.
