Front Cover Text

Innsmouth adventures prior to the Great Raid of 1928

Back Cover Text

Decadent Innsmouth—it is a home to stagnant dreams and lost hopes. Once it was a jewel on the Massachusetts coast, but now it has fallen, its days of glory long gone. Hidden in the fallen buildings, under the silted harbor, and behind the faces of the sullen inhabitants lie secrets, malign and evil.

Before the Fall features four adventures set in and around Innsmouth prior to the federal government raid of 1928. From Arkham to Falcon's Point and in Innsmouth itself, investigators confront the mysteries that form the shadow over Innsmouth.

This Fright Night scenario collection is suitable for beginning keepers and investigators. The adventures can also be used by experienced keepers as interludes in a longer campaign. Included are numerous illustrations, twenty detailed handouts, and several maps.
