|The Arkham Advertiser - 1926
The Keepers helped lay down background for the adventure and give clues by providing a complete 4-page copy of the Arkham Advertiser. Most of the news items were lifted verbatim from an actual newspaper for the day in question, with some items written just for the game. A full newspaper is also a good place for inside jokes. In every newspaper there's a story which quotes someone as saying "We thought it would be fun," which is the motto of the HPLHS.
