    Map Catacombs of the Star Spawn

    ‘…So we ordered this map, which was made after the written description in the expedition diary that was found nearby the corpse of Professor William Farnsdale, the leader of the 1935 spring expedition of the Miskatonic University. The expedition was a joint venture of the Archaeological and Geological Institutes. It reached the destination on 25th April 1935, near the Soviet-Mongolian border. The exact location of the site is still unclear. The initially designated area was ignored after Farnsdale and his geological colleague, Professor Henry Dyer, had a talk with a local guide about strange rock formations and strange things that were found there. Farnsdale torned out the pages with the coordinates, so we may never know where the tragic events happened…
    …The local Mongolians left the expedition two days after Farnsdale and Dyer had decided to open up the entry with dynamite. Talk of ghosts and demons clashed with the scientists' explanations of naive rumors and fairy tales…
    …It was apparently Masterson, one of the geologists, who cut through the ropes of the horses during the night. Without the mounts, the expedition was caught in this area…
    …The team members went mad one by one. Some killed other team members, some themselves. Whatever the expedition had discovered down in the earth, it had a terrible influence to mental sanity…
    …The last entry of Farnsdale about ‘Old Ones’ is a clear sign that even he had lost his mind in the barren land of Mongolia…'
