Black Tentacle Awards
This adventure won the Black Tentacle™ for Best Scenario. The finale in the back yard of Sean’s house in Englewood featured lots of chasing, a disgusting corpse, and many a thrill.

Game Notes
The gruesome dead body at the end of the game was made out of actual meat. That's us, always resourceful and looking for inexpensive special effects. By allowing the meat to decay in a barn for two days before the game, the corpse had a certain olfactory authenticity. The title is taken from an Edgar Allen Poe story of the same name.
