Summary

Super 8 is a scenario set in the modern-day subculture of New York City's sex industry. At least one of the Investigators must be some form of law enforcement who has a reason to investigate the seamy underbelly of the city's red light district. The adventure begins with that character waking one morning with no recollection of the night before, but with a curious videotape lying on his or her bedroom floor partially destroyed.

Synopsis

 Spoiler Section (Highlight to Read)
This adventure is primarily an investigation, with the character waking with the videotape seeking to piece together the 24 hours of events leading up to the beginning of the scenario (with help from his or her Investigator associates). The video itself is a kind of "snuff" film, showing a woman being attacked and devoured by one of the Children of Y'Golonac.

Investigations lead the group to uncover an organization called The Network (which is run by the Delta Green organization The Fate). The Network aims to free Y'Golonac from his imprisonment and bring him to Earth. Their plot involves spreading their god's influence by allowing as many people as possible to see the "snuff film", thereby summoning him. The Investigators learn of the time and location of the final screening, and must race to stop it from happening.

Keeper Comments

This scenario contains a number of adult themes; the text contains a box in which it points out that this may not be to the liking of every group, and that the Keeper should be cautious when running it for his or her group. The suggestion is made that some groups may prefer a less explicit presentation of the material, with details being alluded to rather than described in lurid detail. This is obviously a matter of personal preference for the Keeper and the player group.
