A cultist has created a modified form of heroin called 'dreamfevere' which puts the user in touch with Yog-Sothoth over a two week period after which the user is incurably insane (Assuming they have not killed themselves before hand.) and ripe for recruitment into the cult. The effects noticed by the psychologist are from a trial batch of the drug. The players must track the drug to the source before more people can be affected.
Player Handouts: None provided.
Locations: New York City
Tomes and Artifacts: Interview recording, Paper covered in chemical formulae, Strange Amulet, Dreamfevere etc.

- The title of the scenario comes from the 1983 hit song by the band Eurythmics, which was re-issued in remixed form in 1991.
Comments to Keepers about this scenario; Possibly how to run it successfully. Keep general DISCUSSION on the talk page.
- There are no pre-prepared handouts so Keepers should be prepare to make them, especially important would be the audio recording, which is sufficiently well described in the scenario to allow it to be created with relative ease.
- This scenario would make a good sequel to The Gates of Delirium in The Stars Are Right! if the keeper makes the NPC who brings the PCs into the investigation the person who treats Rachel Hayward in the aftermath of that scenario which would make the hook a very effective link.
