Juju Boutique
New-York, 1925, January the 15th

In the very hearth of Harlem, The Juju Boutique is a tourist shop who's selling many african artifacts. Little is knows about its owner, the ever smiling Silas N'Kwane. But strange rumours and mysterious disappearances surrounds the building. The locals won't talk about it, but those who fled spoke horribles tales of dark rituals and unearthly voices heard from under the very ground.

No Man's Land - The Lloigor Gem
No Man's Land is my all-time favorite Chaosium scenario. Adding the horrors of the Great War to the Cthulhu Mythos gives quite the atmosphere. I've mastered this one four times now, and received an unanimous approval on each occasion. For the last session, I crafted the [redacted]'s gem that I will post later, wore an old french army vest and use a finely selected set of music to go with : The Mozart's Requiem, Berserk OST, BBC severe thunderstorm soundtrack and The Name of the Rose OST. It was quite the experience.

[WARNING : BEGIN SPOILER SECTION]

The featured creature is a Lloigor, an invisible creature feeding on despair and negative emotion. The proximity of the creature was simulated in game with this apparel which I controlled the illumination. The slow crescendo of the eerie light makes quite the effect on the players.

[WARNING : ENDING SPOILER SECTION]

This device is simply made from broken parts of a hurrican (Led) lamp coupled with a blob. The blob comes from an old airsoft target, originally made to stop and stick bullets. With time and dust, it became a horrible and disgusting substance, still transparent and slimy as hell. Since I've store it in a can, it takes a compact and fused shape as you can see.

Below is the map of the tumulus from the scenario.
