Spoilers - Keepers Eyes Only

Players should not read any further.


 Spoiler Section (Highlight to Read)
The cause of the earthquakes are the actions of a former cultist turned Ghoul who is trying to drive the people in the area away so that the region may be turned into a center of cultist activity for the purpose of raising Cthulhu.

In the original magazine version of the scenario, there is less information about what is inside the abandoned farm, the PCs find. The hole containing the copy of The Revelations of Glaaki now needs a spot hidden roll to find. No sanity loss is specified if the players fail to save the town and the encounter with the Chthonian underneath the altar does not occur, instead the underground area goes no further than the place where the staff is found.


Player Handouts: None

Locations: Winnemuck, Michigan

Creatures: Ghoul, Dark Young, Chthonian, Hunting Horror, Servitor of the Outer Gods, Black Widow Spiders

Tomes and Artifacts: Revelations of Glaaki ("...standard English edition..."), Enchanted Staff


List dedication, trivia, images, anything else of note.

Keeper Comments

  • The town at the center of the scenario is very undetailed, the Keepers will need to sort out just what facilities are available for the PCs to use beyond what is mentioned in the scenario.

Keep general DISCUSSION on the talk page.
