The investigators decide to leave London for a spell and investigate a lead in the English countryside. Jackson Elias looked into strange deaths on the moors. The authorities believe the deaths to be simple animal killings, but no mere animal could inflict this kind of carnage. The Vane family, a minor aristocratic clan that lives in a castle, may somehow be connected to the case. You know what they say about exploring the moors at night, but what investigator can stay away?
The investigators have learned quite a bit about the cultists in London, but the cultists have learned about the investigators as well. Now the team must figure out a way to fight back without being overwhelmed by the sheer number of fanatical assassins and sorcerers pitted against them. Enlisting friends as allies in the investigation entails its own risks and one can only defy luck for so long. Mystical artifacts, cunning plans, and a deadly battle in the streets of London are only a prelude for the battles to come!
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?
Synopsis: The more I read about the London Olympics and the prohibitive security measures taken, like missile launchers installed on the roofs of apartment buildings, the more it sounds like a cyberpunk dystopia. And to cap it all off, there is literally a pre-arcology called The Shard that just opened in London. So I did what any self-respecting nerd would do.
I added zombies. Enjoy.
