In 1930, Miskatonic University launched an expedition to the Antarctic. This expedition met first with staggering success, and then with crushing tragedy. Initial fossil finds suggested that this expedition would be bringing home fossils and discoveries that would completely rewrite whole fields of science. Tragically, severe storms claimed the lives of many of those expedition, and those who survived came home somewhat broken.
Now, it is 1933. The world-famous adventurer-explorer James Starkweather and Miskatonic’s top geologist, William Moore, intend to return to Antarctica and finish what the 1930-31 expedition left undone. The Starkweather-Moore expedition is recruiting. Who will heed the call?
