The Nameless City is a stand alone scenario inspired by the anonymus Lovecraft’s short story. The investigators have to explore the ruins and escape alive (maybe with some ancient relic in their hands).
This custom scenario can be played as both a stand-alone and as a side story to any campaign.
If you play as a side story, it costs each investigator 2 xp.
You can play this scenario on Tabletop Simulator following this link and the instructions there:

Any comments and criticisms are welcome. I hope you enjoy the scenery.

Background story:4 out of 5 stars (4.0 / 5)
Visual experience:4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)
Overall experience:4 out of 5 stars (4.0 / 5)
Average:4.2 out of 5 stars (4.2 / 5)

Hi Niccolo,
Could you please list here the cards that received a modification? (I’ve sent the previous files for professionnal printing, and would like to know the cards for which I should print a modified version)
Thanks in advance, and thanks for posting this scenario! I haven’t tried it yet (still waiting to receive the cards), but it seems great!

Hi,
Here the list: act 4, agenda 2 and agenda 3
Elder’s vault, forsaken circle, Inconprehensible glyphs
Imdugud, unspeakable nest, pocket dimension, Son of the ruinstorm, the 3 copies of the Shadow from beyond.
The modifications are very minor (a lot are forced instead of reaction or typing errors).
thank you very much for your appreciation.

Do you happen to have a link to your final print and play order? Was wondering if I could piggyback of someone’s work and avoid the process.

Hey,
I’m not reprinting the whole set, only the few cards that have been corrected, so I guess that won’t be of much use to you…
Sorry about that,
Carl

Little late to the game, but this has been posted as a print and play on bgg. Just ordered a copy and looking forward to playing it. Thank you Niccolo!

What did you think?

Well… the writing can benefit from some editing. I would be interested to compose a full errata list but only if the creator would be willing to consider the proposed rephrasings. As the texts are right now, they feel not-native English, which kinda breaks the immersion coming from the AH base game.
Just let me know if you’re interested.

Thinking, creating, and writing the entire scenario in a month (not in my native language) was a challenge.
I would be more than happy to have the scenario writing improved.
I hope that despite the imperfections the gameplay is smooth, challenging, but enjoyable.
Thank you for your interest in the project.

“Anonymous” means the author is unknown. I’m guessing that what you meant was “eponymous”, or same-named. (Also, the apostrophe is unnecessary; it should say “the eponymous Lovecraft short story”. Although “the eponymous short story by Lovecraft” would sound more natural in English.)
