Sinister Visitations in the Present-Day
" You have displeased me. You have insulted me. You have angered me. Jerinnana is angered on my behalf. Great Pazzuzu is angered. You are to die. You are to die. Our Curse is upon you."
— translated cuneiform verse from a mysterious stone tablet.
Four challenging horrors for today. A book of wretched poetry, an incautious summoning, a Satanic coven, and a house with a suspicious history are the basic ingredients. Useful as stand-alone adventures, or for a change of pace when inserted into an ongoing campaign. Though suitable for beginning player characters, these adventures are dangerous, and incautious beginners will come to regret rash decisions.
Includes the following adventures:
- Last Rites — The death of retired professor Henry Ennis brings family and friends to the small town of Runville Massachusetts. New funerals and mystery soon follow.
- Lethal Legacy — An ordinary mummy has been stolen from the Miskatonic University in Arkham. Something stalks the snow covered countryside.
- The House on Mckinley Boulevard — Within an abandoned house, evil lurks awaiting the unwary.
- The Priestess — When a less than talented poet is ridiculed by his publishers, he seeks vengeance. But there is much more to this murder than meets the eyes, and who knows what horror may reach out across time and space when blood is spilled.
