Nightmare in Providence (BRP)
This adventure takes place in Providence¸ Rhode Island in the year 1928. The adventure's location is easily adaptable¸ and can be moved to most cities in the United States. The 1920's time period works best for the adventure¸ given the heavy emphasis on silent films and early movie theaters. This adventure contains a healthy mixture of combat and investigation¸ with a few puzzles as well.
The investigators have been recruited by the Providence police chief to investigate the coinciding disappearances of film director and nickelodeon owner Elias Hoffmann¸ as well as aspiring actress and local celebrity Marilyn Shepherd. Their investigation takes them to the Providence Nickelodeon¸ where their search opens up a rift in the universe that leads to the Dreamlands¸ in which the investigators will engage in a fight for their lives against the bizarre entity called Mannus (also often referred to as "The Sandman"). This adventure is a terrifying journey through the world of dreams¸ with strong motifs of early cinema.
