Spoilers - Keepers Eyes Only
Players should not read any further.
Dr Williamson and his party were murdered. Morgan is a cultist of Shub-Niggurath and plans to sacrifice the Investigators.
Locations: British Hondurus, Bedal-Dolum
Tomes and Artifacts: Nameless Cults
Campaigns / Scenarios:
There are some problems that the Keeper should address.
Morgan is difficult to kill because of his protection from Haon-Dor:
- attacks vs Morgan have half normal success
- damage to Morgan is halved
- Morgan has super-human strength
This makes it extremely unlikely that he will be "killed or seriously injured" therefore no hell-plant therefore no escape to the Caves of Life.
If Lockly is frightened by Bendal-Dolum, why did he climb down a chain dangling in a bottomless pit to hide the body of Williamson? Also, why did he leave a chest of useful items there?
