The Madman and The Great Old One

Lone adventurer, professor Boethius Cartwright, was tasked with travelling to Jenning, Vermont in order to investigate a series of strange fires on the east side of Strafton Mountain. After questioning locals, Boethius was led to the home of Harny Rooger. After following Mr. Rooger, Boethius discovered that he was involved in summoning some sort of malevolent force to our reality with the help of several hideous flying creatures (The creature being summoned was the Great Old One Ithaqua, with the help of Mi-Go; though at this time Boethius is not completely aware as to what these creatures are). Rooger and the Mi-Go were successful at summoning Ithaqua, who then tore down the side of the mountain, bringing cold death to the town of Jenning. Boethius, temporarily insane from what he witnessed, barely escaped assault by the Mi-Go by running madly down the backside of the mountain and quickly driving out of town though back roads which had not been instantly covered in snow drifts (though they were blocked by morning). At this time, it appears that all of the residents of Jenning were killed by the storm Ithaqua brought to the area, with the possible exception of Mr. Rooger who apparently survived the summoning with his sanity in tact. His current location, however, is unknown.

This experience supported Boethius’ interest in all things occult. It has led him to believe that the universe is more complex and dangerous than previously thought (and perhaps there is something else out there besides what is commonly referred to as the “occult”). He now had the desire to form an organization to research occult and explainable experience. Perhaps he should contact the individuals he recently heard rumour about. They were friends of his old colleague, Rupert Merriweather, and they may have had some cosmically horrendous experiences of their own…
