Synopsis

The back story to the campaign is as follows.

In ancient Egypt, a priest called Nophru-Ka was a secret worshipper of Nyarlathotep. Nophru-Ka plotted against the Pharaoh but was assassinated. As he died, Nophru-Ka spoke a prophecy telling of the destruction of the Pharaoh’s kingdom.

In the 12th century AD, Baron Hauptman and Lang-Fu created the Brotherhood of the Beast to fulfil the prophecy. The Brotherhood protected the descendants of Nophru-Ka (the “Royal Family”) and laid the financial and political foundation for a plan called the Day of the Beast. On the Day of the Beast, terrorists will attack government leaders and monsters will be summoned to destroy cities across the globe.

In the present day, a famous medium, Paul LeMond, has visions of the Day of the Beast. These clues will lead the Investigators to key locations providing background information about the Brotherhood and their current activities.
