    Dear Detective,

    If you are receiving this letter, it is because I am dead. Dark forces beyond anything you can imagine have converged upon me and taken my life from me . . . or perhaps something worse.

    I have seen horrors beyond what the normal human mind can comprehend. Strange yellow mists that swirl in the streets, actors dressed in robes who have no face, and a looming figure standing on the stage of Arkham Theater--waiting just beyond some unseen veil to come into our world.

    It has taken all of my willpower simply not to go insane.

    I’ve been investigating a strange underground society in the theater district of Arkham. They claim to be a thespians society, an acting club, but I know for a fact they are a cult--a cult hellbent on bringing doom to our world. This is the very thing I was trying to prevent.

    Now . . . it is up to you to stop them once and for all.

    Tonight, they are putting on a play . . . a horrific performance that is the final rites to summon The King in Yellow. The play must be performed in complete darkness for the summoning to work.

    Go to Arkham Theater. Light every lantern in the damn building to keep them from finishing that play. Get evidence to reveal their evil scheme once and for all!


    A Friend

    P.S. For heavens sake, keep those damn lanterns lit!

    Terror in the Theater is a Roll+Write role-playing game of Horror Investigation set in 1920s New England. You, the detective/investigator, are following the pleas of a dead friend to check out the theater in the town of Arkham. It is there you will find the horrors you need to face.
