“We shall swim out to that brooding reef in the sea and dive down through black abysses to Cyclopean and many-columned Y’ha-nthlei…”
–H.P. Lovecraft, The Shadow over Innsmouth
Finally, your investigations into the rocky coast off Innsmouth have borne fruit. The cursed city of Y’ha-nthlei dwells off the Devil Reef.This is your chance to end the threat of the Deep Ones to humanity forever, but waking Father Dagon or Mother Hydra will undoubtedly spell the end of the world. This terrible city could also become your watery grave, however, so tread lightly. Danger lurks around every corner, but not finishing what you started would carry consequences greater than you can imagine. Can you hope to defeat a near-immortal race of creatures? Venture Into the Maelstrom and find out!
Into the Maelstrom is the final pack in the Innsmouth Conspiracy cycle. With the Order of Dagon’s secrets firmly in your grasp, you must venture into the very city they are sending citizens of the town to; Y’ha-nthlei is one of the hardest challenges you will ever face. Although Father Dagon and Mother Hydra are not Great Old Ones, they are definitely a major threat to humanity. Failing in your mission will allow the Deep Ones to invade everywhere on the planet. Watch out for Dagon’s Brood and Aquatic Abominations as you make your way deeper into the cursed city. Watch out for a sudden onset of Thalassophobia, however. This Treachery card will cause all investigators at partially flooded locations to take 1 horror, and any at a fully flooded location to take 1 unpreventable horror! Can you and your team survive everything Y’ha-nthlei throws at you and save Innsmouth?
