After surviving the deadly paintings of Miles Shipley and his even more dangerous mother, the investigators have begun to glimpse the sheer scale of the plan of the cultists. Now they just have to find them. Their next target, the Penhew Foundation, is apparently a legitimate research organization, but what secrets does it current leader, Edward Gavigan hold? Who else is connected to the Foundation? As the investigation continues, our heroes discover that their foes are more active than the cultists in New York. For every action, there is an equal and deadly reaction by insane cultists, after all.
After fleeing the United States, the investigators have arrived in London! Jackson Elias pursued many leads while he stayed in the UK, so the team has their work cut out for them. Among the leads are the Penhew Foundation, which participated in the Carlyle Expedition and Miles Shipley, an infamous painter with a strange reputation.Interviewing Miles is a far more dangerous task than the investigators realize for reasons they won’t suspect. The forces of the mythos are far more pervasive than the investigators ever realized, but have they learned it too late?
The Boston side quest continues! After learning about a meeting between two cultists, the investigators realize they have a chance to kill an old foe. In order to stop him, they’ll have to case his hideout, figure out a plan of attack, and execute it without incident. Of course, no plan survives initial contact with reality. What tricks does their foe have up his sleeve? Hint: sometimes you don’t see the forest for the giant monster pretending to be a tree.

The difference between a slasher flick and an action flick seems to be more about who you root for than anything else. Both genres thrive on unstoppable killing machines that murder their prey with near-impunity. In horror films, you root for the final girl to kill the slasher and live. In action films, you hope the hero murders all of the bad guys. But what if you were the bad guys? In the grimdark future of the 1980s, an artificial island called Synthtopia has been built by SomaTek, a giant mega-corporation. SomaTek plans to end the drug war by releasing a new synthetic drug called Soma that offers a safe and legal high 100 times better than any other drug. Naturally, the drug cartels have hired a gang of criminals to take Synthtopia down. But when the gang of 16 villains lands on the island, they will soon learn what it means to cross JACK SHADE, a mullet wearing hero who is more badass than any other man alive. Prepare for thrills, kills, and exciting plot twists in SYNTHTOPIA!
