    This is another excellent scenario from Stygian Fox and recommended for mature players. You really are going to have to check that everyone is ok with some of the themes here. Based on Finnish Folklore and connected to a particular Mythos Deity, there is a lot going on in the books 74 pages. There are plenty of options for players and for the keeper to expand on.

    After the initial investigation stages, violence and mayhem can explode suddenly and unexpectedly and the scenario is best played by players with enough experience to know when to run... if they can! There is a lot of opportunity for role playing and each location gets progressively more eerie with the potential for the game to be very unsettling. The game will probably take about 3 nights to play through but there is room for it to take much longer, in fact this could be a great opener for a campaign. An expanded version of this scenario would be very welcome, and it is begging for a sequel. Highly recommended.

    This is an excellent scenario, something I've come to expect from Stygian Fox. It is an example of the best sort of Call of Cthulhu scenario; one which presents a mythos twist on authentic mythology that veteran players will not pick up on while also presenting us with real world horror in the form of very human greed and selfishness.

    I strongly reccomend it, but please please take the publishers advice and discuss its themes with your players before hand.

    Thanks, Christian. Writing this scenario was, at times, a lot of fun...hiking Hiawatha National Forest, delving deep into the Kalevala for inspiration with Finnish Folklore, and touring local dairy farms to understand the unique challenges these farmers face are just a few of the highlights. And then, at times...it wan't nearly so much fun. The 'School for Boys,' for example, and the politics behind the privatization of prisons is based on a real juvenile detention center, and, if anything, I reined it in a bit. Perhaps one day we'll release supplemental materials for this scenario as so much was left on the cutting room floor. Anyways, we're glad that you liked it and we look forward to getting more horrifying (yet excellent) material out into the world!
