Horror at Harwicke Castle Auction CardYou are attending an auction at Harwicke Castle on Glendower Island in Southern England. As this is a normal affair surely one need not be concerned about horrors in the dark, sudden violence, terror beyond imagination, and madness. Surely, there will be nothing to fear…

This classic era (1920s) Lovecraftian Horror scenario is the favorite of several of the folks in my regular campaign group and I have run it many times. It was also written in the early eighties and has some fun scenes. The characters have only met each other in passing and are thrown together by desperate circumstances.

The players have several unique challenges in this scenario. The game begins at an auction hosted at a castle on an island off the coast of England. Here the characters, who are buyers for various collections, are thrust by circumstance and the onset of horror beyond ken.

Over the years there have been a number of interesting outcomes with this six to eight hour scenario. Many a character has been horrifically savaged, driven mad by unknowable revelation, escaped while scarred by terror, and many a strange fate. This scenario offers a variety of possible scenes and horrors. Darkness and terror await the innocent within the castle brooding above the sea.
