On the Wallachian Trail is a mashup of classic horror and americana, with a touch of humor. Leave Arkham to head to coal country and appalachia. This scenario is designed to have a strong mix of clue gathering and combat for a team of investigators at a mid-campaign experience level. 

My verdict:

Thank you for taking a look. I’ll be making a round of edits soon, hopefully this weekend. responses to a few things:

Font: I’ll review the font, but most cases where its small is a constraint of the strange eons program and the amount of text on the card. I tried to cut it down as best I could.

Card numbers: Honest answer, card numbering was taking too much time, and I got tired of it. I’m going to try and get back in and update. Its a lot of cards, so kudos to those with full campaigns that are numbered…

Its a joke/easter egg of sorts

blank note paper:

Conceptually, there wasn’t anything on the paper. It’s vampiric suggestion, and its just easier for the investigator to have soemthing physical that they think they’re looking at. I chose not to spell it out in the narrative, a bit of mystery

Kos – Thanks for the edit suggestions. I did end up incorporating many of them. Some I updated in a different way, and there were a few I left as is (call it artistic difference).

For anyone that has downloaded this, I’ve updated the files to fix a few critical errors on cards. Most importantly:

  1. fixed connection information on the slums and mines.
  2. fixed some instructions on the act/agenda cards
  3. Changed the clues on the starting location to encourage investigators to spread out more.

I’ve also tweaked flavor text throughout.
