During a war on a balkanized planet, the unthinkable happens and a weapon of mass destruction is unleashed. When international inspectors are stymied in their attempts to investigate, the heroes are hired to slip in and gather the data needed. But a simple sneak-and-snoop job quickly becomes a cat-and-mouse game with paranoid citizens and jumpy soldiers. And what is the deadly secret that the military is trying to hide?
The Name of the Beast is a short adventure for Cepheus Engine and similar 2D6 science fiction games, including The Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game.
