Months after The Yellow King played at the Ward Theatre, your investigation into the strange events surrounding the play has left you with more questions than answers. You’ve encountered Cultists, Lunatics, and Monsters. You’ve uncovered horrific Schemes of untold scope. And you’ve witnessed Terrors that may or may not have been Omens of greater perils.

So where do you go for answers when your world’s tilting into madness? The answer: Paris. Your trip to Paris is fated to be eventful as you hope to gain some answers from the play’s director, Nigel Engram. But will you find the man for whom you’re looking? Or will someone – or something – find you instead?
