When a leisure cruise out to Bass Rock goes awry and a summer thunderstorm traps the investigators on the barren island with only a ruined castle and a run-down lighthouse as shelter, things can’t seem to get much worse. But as the storm rages on into the black night, they discover just how wrong they are.

Comments / Trivia

Ballad is the 'lost' scenario from Shadows Over Scotland. This 7th scenario was meant to be the third of three shorter scenarios in the book, but had to be cut when the layout proof ran long. Essentially, Ballad is a very dark, very dangerous little one-shot that was to be a counterpoint to many of the longer, investigative scenarios in Shadows Over Scotland. The situation is desperate, the time is short, and the investigators are horribly out-gunned, if you will. The horror is the thing here and the insignificance of the characters is brought to light.
