From publisher blurb:
“Who is responsible for the epidemic in Arkham that has left dozens of tumor-ridden and mutated patients in hospital? Are the authorities really blaming it on spoiled milk?”
EXTRA! “Spoiled Milk” is a short investigative scenario of Cthulhu Mythos horror,that starts in H.P. Lovecraft's fictional town of Arkham and ventures out into some of the adjacent countryside It is not a fully self-contained scenario, but rather an add-on to the newspaper-based resource, Dateline: Lovecraft, Issue #1. To make full use of this PDF you will need to own a copy of that product.
The strange events related in this dark tale from legend-haunted Arkham center upon the public health crisis that has swept to the attention of many locals. Some foul taint seems to have settled upon the milk supplies which are delivered daily to thousands of Arkhamites. People have reported vomiting, bleeding ... and other, far, stranger symptoms. The authorities have been aiming to keep a lid on it, but a plucky reporter from the Arkham Advertiser has received an 'inside tip' that promises to blow the whole scandal wide open.
Authorities are keen to stop the reporter from publishing any follow-ups to his initial story, but it's not as easy as that ... for, the reporter has himself mysteriously gone missing. What shadowy forces are behind the fouling of Arkham's milk supply? Are the local dairies -- each scrabbling to establish their "healthful" image -- somehow to blame? Or is there something more sinister behind the weird mutations which sufferers of poisoning are starting to display?
One thing is for certain ... the more cases of tainted milk report to St. Mary's Hospital, the more frantic the population of Arkham become. Everone wonders if their loved ones might be next. Can it be long before the whole of the town is in a panic? Or can a few plucky investigators get to the bottom of things before the riots begin?
