Keeper Comments

If the players received the computer print-out clue in Look to the Future, they may be confused by the link with Henry Hancock. There appears to be no reason why his nephew should contact them - unless he is working for the Order as well! A certain level of paranoia is justified - see The Worm that Walks - but having several writers for the one campaign does make this rather messy.

The village of Cannich is awash with NPCs - both cultists and allies. The Keeper might wish to cut out some of the less important ones.
