Journal of Thankful Dolittle Geology Graduate at Miskatonic University Forest Expedition Day 37 Never before have I witnessed something so grand and majestic as the mountain at which we arrived two afternoons ago. The snow blanketing its bare peak reflects enough light that it is nearly blinding to look upon for long in the brightness of midday. I have been so utterly consumed by my explorations and research that I have not had the time to write about what we’ve found. This whole place instills in me a sense of wonder and appreciation for the God Beyond. That feeling, though, never lasts long. Not when there are shades constantly haunting our journey through the forests. A homesteader brought along on the expedition, Silence as she’s called, admonishes any of us from the University when we call the forests hell, but that does not stop us. What else can this place be but a hell in this world? And what god would allow such creatures to exist still, stuck in a limbo between death and what waits beyond? At least in the days since we left Last Port, we have been kept safe from the creatures. No one has broken one of the Simple Rules, though thoughts of the shades coming for me haunt my dreams each night. All I see are eyes. Bright green and crimson. The colors of withering and death. Still, I have to think only of the mountain and what we discovered to help ease my fears and return that sense of wonder. For today we found the ruins of an ancient civilization. One that thrived and fell long before the first Forescouts ventured from the Homeland and away from the Evil there. Thinking of what we can discover about the ancient dwellers of these forests may help us learn more about how we can tame this land. I believe shades existed back then as well, for we found an abundance of silver among the exposed ruins. Unless, of course, silver was simply the easiest and most prevalent metal found in this mountain. If that is the case, this discovery will be a boon for Last Port and the other forts. With this much silver, civilization will be able to expand and tame the forests and its shades. There is a problem, though. Another reason for my appreciation for the God Beyond to wane. I have heard whispers among some few of the other members of this expedition that the ruins we discovered may not be entirely unoccupied. Talk of the Evil that consumed the Homeland has swelled as they postulate that the Evil first came from here, these ruins and this fallen city we discovered. That cannot be true, but there has been a change among some of my companions. They are darker. The shades at night grow more restless. Blood is on the horizon. Welcome to Long Game 76: At the Forests of Madness! I will be your GM. @The Unknown Order will co-GM, and @Devotary of Spontaneity will be the IM. This is a rerun of LG60, though this is a mash-up of Sanderson’s Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell and HP Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness. Premise: You have been invited to join a geologic expedition to delve further into the Forest of Hell. Led by Professor William Dyer of Miskatonic University, the hope is to discover more about the forests and their potential resources for the growing fortress cities. You have found a snow-covered mountain that shows signs of an ancient civilization. The more you discover, the more you realize the civilization might not be entirely extinct. On top of the consistent danger from the shades, there is an evil lurking just beyond the view. An evil that drives men into madness with whispers in the night. An evil that tempts the hearts of men. An evil that ends only in death. Rules Here is a link to the full ruleset, though you can find it below as well.

Journal of Thankful Dolittle Geology Graduate at Miskatonic University Forest Expedition Day 42 One of my companions has died. Amity was found dead inside his tent this morning. The image of what was done to him lingers still in my mind and I fear it will never leave me. If any predators remained in these forests, I would have assumed only an animal could have done something so gruesome. How the shades did not enrage and kill us all, I do not know. There were signs of blackened silver at the barrier of the camp but Silence said nothing was breached and there were signs that the killer took many precautions beyond just silver. Amity was a good man and a good student. We spent many years studying together at the university. To see how his life ended so horrendously is more than a shock. What makes it all worse is the restlessness it has instilled among the rest of the expedition. His death was more than a simple act of rage. It was almost exploratory in nature. Like something wishing to discover more about the functions of the human body. My mind is drawn to the civilization that once was here. We discovered more about the Elder Things and what we have uncovered about their practices. Then there were the whispers. I do not think it was some ancient creature returned from the beyond that killed Amity. I believe some of my companions have turned. They found something within the ruins they now worship. They were following their traditions. Even as it makes the deepest recesses of my mind shudder, I believe we have murderers among us. Murderers whose minds have become corrupted by the Evil. I have tried to convince Professor Dyer that we should leave this place. It is not worth the resources to linger in a place of such destruction, but he has denied me. He is focused only on the task given by the University and says there are too many things yet to discover. The silver we have found is enough alone to keep him digging. If we do not leave soon, though, I fear we may never make it back. The expedition begins!
