Ravenloft has many villains but none so…unusual as an evil puppet. Cody and I read the module, meant to be an introduction to Ravenloft, and found more than a few problems with it.
The year is 1935 and horror lurks in the shadows of the Great Depression. In a Hooverille near a small town of California, Bryson Springs, a man has been murdered by means most foul. A FBI agent is ordered to investigate the death even though he is currently transporting a mafia hitman to prison. A reporter from L.A. and a professor of anthropology also converge on the area, drawn by fate or curiosity. The unlikely heroes find themselves surrounded by a horror they cannot imagine, let alone perceive!
This is part 1 of the game, remastered with better audio quality.

What’s the dumbest cybernetic implant? All this and more in part 2
