"You awake in your hotel room bed, before you even sit up, you can tell something is wrong. You smell iron in the air. Your eyes open, and you look around. Blood. It covers the bed across the room from you. The blankets are thrown all over, there are tears in the mattress, and there are personal effects around the bed that have been tossed around the room. This is alarming enough, but the real dread comes when you remember going to sleep in this room last night alone. What do you do?"

Sensitive Cases Division
Patrick Corcoran ($2.99, 68 page PDF)

The Sensitive Cases Division (SCD) does not officially exist. It is an informal collection of individuals that are brought together to tackle very difficult and strange cases. There are no official records with the name Sensitive Cases Division (SCD) attached to them. Most people assume it is just an urban legend.

Sensitive Cases Division is a supplement meant to provide a gaming table with an organization that has ties to official law enforcement channels but operates in an extra-legal fashion. The intent of the supplement is to provide a ready-made organization, and a set of 10 different pre-generated character types that can be plugged into a scenario. You could always use the Sensitive Cases Division and the characters as NPCS for a rival faction or antagonistic group as well.

Midwest Mythos: Heart of the Music
A.M. Viers ($3.99, 33 page PDF)

The S.S. Madam Columbia is a grand casino boat from Chicago, and is often the envy of those that are unable to board. However, with new management and the promise of Spritiualist leaders and occultists on board, along with a cheaper ticket price, the boat is open to many who might want to enjoy a night gambling, drinking, and learning about the darker side of the world. What many do not know is the secret that lays beneath the deck and how a murder on board reveals that everything is not how it appears.

Creator A.M. Viers says, "Reviews are appreciated to continue improving the quality of such scenerios. I wish to create many more situations exploring my home, the American Midwest, and every odd thing that exists within it."

We Dream of Flying
Jim Phillips (FREE, 30 page PDF)

A disparate group of international elites have, each for their own reasons, boarded Flight 19 from Los Angeles to Tokyo on a first-class ticket. The flight promises to be a quiet affair - allowing for time to rest, relax, and perhaps even get some work done. The fight is completely full, but an unfortunate coincidence and the all-too-understandable sorrow of a lonely little girl will lead them deep into a mystery from which there may be no escape.

Intended as a Modern Day exercise in mystery, character development, and role-playing interactions between the Investigators themselves, there are no monsters to be fought and no cultists to defeat. There is only a mystery, and the question of how the Investigators will ultimately choose to resolve the terrible and fantastical situation they find themselves in.

Plus new releases in Finnish, French, Korean, and Spanish!
