Today’s scenario: Collateral Damage …

Scenario: Collateral Damage

You have finally achieved the glorious status of Son of Yog Sothoth, an upper-level rank in the Lodge. In the middle of that ritual to formalize your status, a Lodge member runs in and says, “We’re under attack! The ones from underearth … There are battling monsters everywhere.”

John Scott, his eyes flashing, says, “Those from below, they seek our wisdom. Once one side gains ascendency, they will kill us and devour our corpses for their dark rituals. We must prevent them from accomplishing their task.” He rushes off to prepare magic defenses. The police refuse to enter the Lodge, so it’s up to you.

Sandy’s Gameplay Notes

As ghouls and gugs and their allies battle for control of the Lodge, you must find out why the battle has come to the Lodge.

You must also balance the two sides in the struggle – you cannot wholly support one, nor the other while you find out how to drive them back to their burrows.

Today’s scenario: Expedition …

Scenario: Expedition

You wake up groggy to realize that you are not at home. To your horror, you see you are in an underground cavern, tied to a slab. Humans, faces covered with black masks made of a suspicious leather (one seems to have a human nipple on it), work feverishly on machines.

“You’re awake,” one speaks with an unnameable accent. 

“Our drones failed. Now we use YOU to find out why. You are equipped and armed. Discover the problem, fix it if possible, and return and report.” 

When you look down at your bodies, you see you have been surgically attached to awful mechanical devices

Sandy’s Gameplay Notes

Now a prisoner of the Ancients from deep beneath the Earth, they are sending you to find out what is going wrong in the caverns. You must not only unlock the secret and solve it, but find a way to rid yourself of the slave harnesses you’ve been outfitted with.

Ultimately, you discover the Great Old One which is infesting the cavern’s nooks and crannies and must extirpate it throughout.

Scenario: From the Pit to the Stars

You arrive in the lodge parking lot for a meeting, when some crazy-eyed Lodge members brandish weapons and shriek about “Power from the Stars”. You resist, but a hideous ratbatspider drops from the sky into the parking lot. 

You try to fight it. First, its Acid damages you and then, its Anti Matter Armor hurts you when you try to hit it.

Any wounds you deal to it shortly heal from its ability to Regenerate. In despair, you surrender, though now you are wounded in your futile fight. Your Items are taken away and dropped in the basement guard room.

Sandy’s Gameplay Notes
Taken captive by alien monsters, you must battle your way through extraterrestrial technology and horrors to find the huge and loathsome creature which is opening a portal to the stars.

The greatest threat might be the mind control that the enemies’ telepathy exerts over the lodge.

Scenario: Beyond the Wall of Time

Out hunting near the canyon, you are attacked by a monster! At least, you think it it’s a monster. After gunning it down, you realize it is a small dinosaur. You hear an unnatural howl nearby.

It must have to do with the cave. Cops have better things to do than get killed. This is a job for you and your friends. Armed and ready, you head into the cave to see what what’s going on.

Sandy’s Gameplay Notes

Back in the Rock Canyon Caverns, you face an invasion of time. Entities from the distant past and the far future have built time gates, which you must find and turn off.

Meanwhile, the fearsome entities themselves keep pouring through rifts in time and turning the gates back on! It’s a race before encroaching threat dooms you all.

You receive a frantic call from a Lodge member. “It’s all going wrong — people are changing, degenerating. The Blue ceremony must be stopped — it could destroy the world!”

The Investigators, Lodge members in good standing, are aware that a band of the Lodge’s more sinister members calls itself the Blue Campus.

You had thought they were just dilettantes, but apparently now they are using the Lodge’s facilities to do something awful. What could it be? You race to the Lodge to stop them.

Sandy’s Gameplay Notes
