 Spoiler Section (Highlight to Read)
The Investigators are contacted by an elderly lady, Estelle Killeen, who wants them to find her missing husband. Investigating reveals that while Estelle is becoming forgetful in her old age (She's forgotten her husband is dead.), she is quite right in this case. Someone has stolen her husbands coffin. The culprits are rum runners under control of a Sorcerer named Alexander Brunner, who after his death in the American Revolution has returned as a Crawling One. He is in search of his former colleagues so that he may bring them back to life and together they may continue their researches into the Mythos and the power it can bring them.

Comments to Keepers about this scenario; Possibly how to run it successfully. Keep general DISCUSSION on the talk page.

  • As written the scenario assumes that the PCs are private investigators, this might make it a good campaign starter if investigators want to go that route.
