Adventure: This Tragic World Is Just a Dream.

DetailsArkam, MA, 1930. It had been six months since Mrs. Katie Bentley was found passed out in her bedroom. She claimed to have seen her husband, Charles Bentley, retrieving all their stock certificates and other financial interests from their strong box, but no one else had seen him or his automobile on the premises. Furthermore, though she had been diagnosed as barren, it was now clear that she is very pregnant. But now it has been almost a year since Charles Bentley was retained by a brokerage firm to process a bill of patent for “a great jump forward in the transportation industry that will surely wind up in Ripley’s”.  However, the consulting investigation team, the PCs from the Guild of the Study of the Unexplained, have also learned that the head of the firm, a Mr. Arcturus Bishop, who retained Bentley, had been seen retrieving an object from the ruins of the Whateley house in Dunwich.
