Thanks to any and all for taking the time printing and playing this scenario. It was a lot of fun to craft.
One small correction to the text on Agenda 3b. Game text under the italics should read:
“Place the set-aside Stygian Grotto location into play.
Move all investigators and enemies from Kingsport locations to the Stygian Grotto.
Advance to Act 4a.”
Apologies for this oversight. This tweak will be included in a final version, once I’ve collected more feedback from players.


Now updated with version 1.3, fixing some poor wording on cards.

hey matthew! finally got this printed up and was just laying it out. two questions: 1 — do you have a suggested layout for it? i can’t seem to figure out a layout i’m super happy with. the streets all connect to Orange Point but only Ship Street connects to Green Lane (but Green Lane connects back to all the streets, i think). if you have a suggested layout, that would be awesome! 2 — i printed the previous version so don’t have you latest updates — anything major i should be looking out for? anyway, thanks for the hard… Read more »
Will! Thank you so much for taking the time to print this out, and apologies for the errors in the earlier version you’ve printed.

Suggested layout would place the Kingsport locations stacked, as a “Christmas tree”: Green Lane as the base, the 3 squares above this (Ship Street at centre), then the 2 triangles,… Read more »

Hello Matthew,

first of all, great scenario!

Any chance you can upload the card images as well?

I’d love to translate this into Italian, and I need the images to recreate every card… can you help me?

Thanks in advance! 🙂


Hi Alessio! That sounds great – I’d love to see this get an Italian translation! What exactly do you need to make this happen? I used Strange Eons to create the scenario – if you do the same, I could send you the work files and you could make the changes directly into the app. You can email me directly at


Hello Matthew,

thank you so much for the quick reply!

Yes, I use Strange Eons as well: it would be great if you could send me the work files via WeTransfer, Google Drive or whichever means you prefer 🙂

Also, thank you very much for your e-mail address! Here’s mine:

For the record, I’ve also translated another scenario called The Grand Oak Hotel!

I still need to get used to Arkham Horror’s writing style, but I think (or better, I hope) I’m getting the hang of it! 😀

Thanks again!
