Call of Cthulhu – Deep in the Bayou (Part 1)

Louisiana, 1926. A desperate group of Cajun residents around the small town of Montegut has posted a large reward for any information related to a series of missing persons. The victims were apparently snatched from their homes with little trace.

Enter the rival teams of Castle Investigations and Coen Investigations. The two teams are enigmatic duos of P.I.s, hard-boiled and ready to take on anything. As the session opens, they have high-tailed it to Montegut to crack the case of the missing Cajuns.

What awaits them is a town conspicuously clean, conspicuously uniform, and secretly deadly. Their journey will take them through the town and its secrets, and deep into the bayou, where a greater horror works.

Fear Itself – Delta Greenhouse


Delta City, Colorado. An abandoned ghost mining town in the hinterlands, it has recently become the subject of interest of the ghost investigators of GEIST (Ghost Enthusiasts Investigators and Science Team), a paranormal enthusiast cable television show.
The team consists of Anthony Brown: an oblivious department store worker who turned to GEIST for easy money and travel, David Santiago: a former investigative journalist in Detroit who had once been attached to a medic battalion in Iraq, and Nicky Hatch, a protective woman who joined GEIST to see if dogs can find ghosts.
