“Nyarlathotep…the Crawling Chaos…I am the last…I will tell the audient void…”H.P. Lovecraft, Nyarlathotep, 1920
1921 – a world still reeling from the ‘war to end all wars’. And, out of this darkness, a seemingly renewed spirit of enterprise and discovery: a newspaper article advertising an explorer planning an expedition into the Andean highlands of Peru to locate a lost pyramid – this explorer, Augustus Larkin, was after intrepid and skilled individuals to join him in his quest for treasure and a lost civilization.
Soon, telegrams were sent out to the hand-picked few, and they eagerly disembarked the boat, gazing round at the bustling splendor of Lima. Thus began their first steps into a nightmare that was to consume years of their lives; a nightmare that would traverse continents, sear their sanity, and maybe even claim their very lives as they unraveled a horrifying conspiracy…
