Having found out that the Scrolls of the Sedefkar Simulacrum were not in the Topkapi Palace seemingly having been donated by Garaznet and then seemingly stolen by Selim Makryat.

Lost and confused they decide to engage in some Grave Rubbing in the hopes that Garaznet’s grave can give them some clues. With the back up plan of changing the vowel and engaging in Grave Robbing.

Of course this depends on if their Dice stop trying to kill them!

Heading towards Constantinople the Investigators start to plan exactly what it is they need to do as they approach the literal end of the line. However, they are also stepping right into the belly of the beast as the Cult of the Skinless One must surely run rampant in the city.

Will they be left to research in peace. Or will an early grave in the Bosphorus come to call.

Firstly Mawdrigen and Sheba went to Georgia (the country not the state) and came back with tea that we reviewed.

But that is just a momentary distraction from the death and destruction that happens next. Trapped on the train with an angry Vampire willing to kill who knows how many people to secure the Sedefkar Simulacrum the Investigators are backed into a corner like never before. The horrors they have seen are eroding their sanity and their will.

Can they survive, can they rid themselves of the Vampire, and can they live with what they may have to do to triumph?

Chai Masala from Tea India is reviewed and Mawdrigen quite likes it (which is good as it is Sheba’s favourite).

Yeah

Right.

There is something on the train with them, and it seems to be interested with their cargo.

WE ARE MUCH LOUDER IN THIS ONE! The chairs are still loud however which is annoying!

Firstly we go through our Itunes Reviews and give thanks to the lovely people who sent them to us! We also discuss pulling off CoC well around the table (Call of Cthulhu!)

We review a tea that Sheba ordered from Tea India (https://www.teaindia.co.uk/) which we thoroughly enjoyed!

Then into the adventure, the players have gone to try and finally deal with the Butchers in their hide out. However reaching there it seems as if someone else may have gotten to them first.

What lurks beneath in the darkness. Will they find the head of the Sedefkar Simulacrum, and if they do, will they be able to escape with it?
