5320 Lamentations of the Flame Princess: The Tower of the Stargazer, GM: Dan Domme, 6 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 2p-6p.

He feared not retribution from man nor God, for he drew his knowledge from something greater. Something darker. Something outside. The legend of this wizard grew, first whispered by men in fear, and later in awe. But then there was no more news. No more talk. Something had finally brought the wizard low, for though the sky still blazed down on him and his abode, he no longer blazed back. And now you're going to walk right through this wizard's front door.

Real, verifiable crimes, not the nonsense about fish-men and sea-gods spouted by that unstable young chap. You're not nervous, impressionable antiquarians like him; you're sober, level-headed G-Men. You'll find the truth in Innsmouth. Trail of Cthulhu is an investigative horror RPG set in the world of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos stories. Characters provided.
