They’ve discovered a long lost tomb of a nearly forgotten Pharaoh and artifacts have arrived at the Exhibit Museum for study and display. There was a break-in last night and a guard found dead. Wild rumors of a mummy curse fill the front page of the Arkham Advertiser. The Society’s own P. E. Whyborne is a witness to the events, if still a bit shaken. Some artifacts are rumored missing. Investigate the break in and get to the bottom of this. Our companions in Egypt may be in grave danger!

Trail of Yig

Madame Yolanda, a medium in Arkham, is gaining a reputation for her predictions. Dr. Henry Armitage asked for volunteers to attend one of her seances to determine the authenticity of her claims.

“We are not only interested in documenting the supernatural,” said Armitage. “It is also our duty to uncover those that would take advantage of people for personal gain.”

Whiskey in the West End
June 1923

A friend of the Society on the Boston Police force has brought us some interesting information. Lt. Benjamin Alexander is concerned that the disappearances of several known drunks in the city’s West End are connected. While the BPD is content to consider the cases of missing rummies low-priority, Lt. Alexander thinks this might be related to a bad batch of whiskey that was recently uncovered in a warehouse operated by Declan McBride in the same area. Based on the shipping records uncovered in a raid of one of McBride’s warehouses, it looks like this batch came from Blackwater Creek, MA—the site of a recent Society investigation.
