Energy to Spare – The high school kids are raving about a new energy drink, Ümph. However the teachers and administrators have banned the drink from all school property in the district. They’re claiming Ümph makes some kids act out and cause trouble. Security will be tight at tonight’s homecoming game. Let’s hope nothing terrible happens.
Dark Science – Hidden beneath the prosperous downtown of Red Wing, sinister experiments have been conducted on unwilling test subjects. The resulting supernatural side-effects have spread quietly throughout the town. Who conducted this research and why? What exactly was done to the people trapped in these dank cells? Who covered-up the entire project? This game will focus on research, exploration and investigation.
Red Wire or Blue Wire? – Ümph the energy drink’s unintended side effects are considered well within corporate safety parameters. Three more trucks are scheduled to leave the bottling plant this week. Chester needs your help. The shipments must be stopped to protect innocent consumers. The test product is only being produced from one location. Destroy the facility and the secret recipe.
Using their vast library and considerable connections, our partners in The Royal Society of Enquiry have tracked down a cache of ancient relics. Roman pagans fleeing persecution from early Christians built a secret temple to house their treasures in Constantinople. Some exciting documents revealing the location of this valuable horde of artifacts have been translated by Chancellor Neville Welke himself. This mission is of the utmost importance to both The Miskatonic Society and The ROSE.
You will board a steamer to Paris, meet up with the ROSE expedition team and travel together on The Orient Express to Istanbul. There, under the streets of the most eclectic city in the world, you will find items of wealth, power and knowledge that have no equal on this earth!
