Keeper Comments

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

  • As with any scenario that involves a letter from the friends of the Investigators unless this is intended as a one-off game or the first part of a campaign, it is strongly recommended that the friend and her husband be introduced in earlier games, so that when the appeal for help is made the players have a good reason to respond.
