Act 1 – Searching for Answers

Type: Act
Encounter Set: Blood on the Altar
Clue Threshold:
Objective – When an investigator enters The Hidden Chamber, advance.
You find your way into the hidden chamber where you believe the missing folk are being held, but the horrors that confront you there fray the edges of your sanity. Bound by chains in a secluded corner of the room is an unspeakable creature with the face of a man. It wheezes and wrestles to free itself as it notices your entrance. The many mouths covering the creature’s body are covered in blood and gristles of meat, as though it were feeding recently.
With a hideous croak, the creature speaks with seven mouths. “Ss.. se... eth...?” Then it lurches forward as though to grab you, and several of its chains snap.
Reveal each unrevealed location.
Move all clues in play (including those on each investigator) to The Hidden Chamber.
Spawn the set-aside Silas Bishop enemy in The Hidden Chamber.
The disappearances in town may be related to the events in Arkham. You suspect that something awful is afoot. You must find where the missing townsfolk are being held in order to unveil this conspiracy.

Act 2 – The Chamber of the Beast

Type: Act
Encounter Set: Blood on the Altar
Clue Threshold:
Objective – If Silas Bishop is defeated: (->R1)
Objective
– If there are no clues in the Hidden Chamber, advance.
Despite the danger, you brave the beast’s horrifying presence and investigate further before killing it. What you find confirms your worst suspicions. Several journal entries written by a “Seth Bishop” describe the process of feeding the creature in horrifying detail – tomatoes at first, then small game, then cattle, and then finally “human sacrifices.” But the most disturbing part is that Seth calls the creature by name: “Silas.”
If The Necronomicon (Olaus Wormius Translation) is in play: (-> R2)
Otherwise: (->R3)
The pitiful beast lunges to grab you with slimy arms, its many jaws snapping in hunger. Killing it would be merciful. But perhaps there is something else to discover about this creature…

Agenda 1 – Strange Disapperances

Type: Agenda
Encounter Set: Blood on the Altar
Doom Threshold: 6
More whippoorwills gather about the village as the night progresses. The other townsfolk, notoriously superstitious, are frightened by the presence of the birds. Doors are shut and locked, and you find yourself alone in the streets of Dunwich.
If there are 3 or more potential sacrifices, choose one of them at random and place it underneath the agenda deck, without looking at it.
Your welcome in Dunwich has been cold. A string of disappearances has left the already aloof townsfolk on edge. Most of them look at you with distrust, and few are willing to help in your investigation. Who knows what will happen if you don’t find the location of the missing townsfolk soon...

Agenda 2 – The Old Ones Hunger

Type: Agenda
Encounter Set: Blood on the Altar
Doom Threshold: 6
More whippoorwills flock to Dunwich village as the night progresses. The other townsfolk, notoriously superstitious, are terrified by the birds’ presence. With the doors around you shut and locked, you find yourself alone in the streets of Dunwich.
If there are 2 or more potential sacrifices, choose one of them at random and place it underneath the agenda deck, without looking at it.
As the sun sets, the frightened townsfolk retreat into their homes and lock their doors. It is clear to you that many of them know more than they are letting on. A sickening feeling turns over in your stomach as the village’s true nature becomes clear.

Agenda 3 – Feed the Beast

Type: Agenda
Encounter Set: Blood on the Altar
Doom Threshold: 7
The whippoorwills that have been cawing through the night scatter in unison, as if they are somehow satisfied with the turn of events.
Each investigator must immediately resign.
The rhythmic screeching of the whippoorwills fills the night. If the superstitions of Dunwich are correct, their song portends impending death... But for whom?
