Hi all,

Somehow I missed this. The reviews look great but it’s out of print and going for three times the cover cost.

Any thought? Is it scary? Can a dedicated but intermediate level Keeper run it effectively?

Also the campaign has three, for lack of better words, adventures. Anyone know if they have to be run in order?

It's not one I'm familiar with, but most of my Call of Cthulhu books are from the 80s and 90s. I've eyed some of the new deluxe sets like Oriental Express and the new edition of Masks of Nyarnyarcat with some degree of lust, but haven't taken the plunge in a while.

It's been a while since I've looked at my copy. I only recall reading the first scenario, which I thought was ok. I don't recall the other scenarios or the general progression of events - but I think it starts off gradually and builds towards a climax.

I should really dig through it again some time and see what's of value.

If you don’t mind something shorter check out The Things We Leave Behind by Stygian Fox. I particularly like the Ladybug scenario
I ran Forget Me Not for my group around a year ago. Which is a thoroughly messed up scenario that my players enjoyed.
