Numerous devilish cults speak of monstrous creatures called the Old Ones. These supernatural beings are believed to be possessed of powers equivalent to those of the gods of antique religions. Adepts of
such cults refer to forbidden literature in order to cause these frightful entities to appear before them.

What serious student of folk myths has not come across the names of Cthulhu and Shub Niggurath?

It must be said that these creatures wield tremendous power and are difficult to control once they have been unleashed into the world. Those who serve “He who goes in shadows” protect themselves
with signs of stone, carved into the walls of houses or engraved on various objects.

For these misguided servants of evil, the best protection appears to be that afforded by “the sign of the most ancient gods”, engraved in MNAR stone, a heavy material, said to be disagreeable to the touch.

The sinful practises of those who fall into such errors can only lead to the darkest of despair and are a mortal danger to the soul. Such monsters as those invoked by these foolhardy individuals are engendered when reason drops its guard. Man is easily tempted into perversion. It is why we must forever remain alert and renounce Satan with each breath we take. His ways are infinite in number.

Alone in the Dark

In 1924, Jeremy Hartwood, a noted artist and owner of the Louisiana mansion Derceto (named after the Syrian deity), has committed suicide by hanging himself. His death appears suspicious yet seems to surprise nobody, for Derceto is widely reputed to be haunted by an evil power. The case is quickly dealt with by the police and soon forgotten by the public. The player assumes the role of either Edward Carnby—a private investigator who is sent to find a piano in the loft for an antique dealer—or Emily Hartwood, Jeremy's niece, who is also interested in finding the piano because she believes a secret drawer in it has a note in which Jeremy explains his suicide. Whether Carnby or Hartwood, the character goes to the mansion to investigate.
