While visiting San Francisco along one of the Investigators has stumbled across a Atlach-Nacha cultist trying to establish a network across the United States. A horrific encounter with the cult has resulted in the Investigator developing partial amnesia covering the entire time they have been in San Francisco.

While apparently a modern day scenario (There is a possible visit to San Francisco International Airport mentioned.), there is nothing stopping a keeper from running it in the Classic Era if need be, though some locations will need to be altered.
The scenario consistently misspells Buddha as Budha.
- It would be best to build the hook for this scenario into the characters background at character generation.
- The details of the Cultists plans are only vaguely described in the scenario, so the Keeper will have to develop this information further if they want to make it the basis of a future campaign.
- The author makes some assumptions about just what Mythos knowledge the Investigators possess without providing them the means to obtain certain Mythos information within the scenario, if the Keeper feels it necessary they may wish to introduce the information needed in a scenario prior to running this scenario.
