[IC] Chapter 1: Eton

When the Provost of Britain’s most prestigious college for boys is bequeathed a parcel of land in a rural backwater he’s never even heard of, the venerable old man calls upon a select number of friends to look into the matter.

Why was Dr. Preedy mentioned in the last will and testament of the Squire of Wergyn Hall? Where are the ruins of St. Wergyn’s church, of which he has become the unexpected custodian? What is the truth behind the strange tales and legends that haunt the benighted countryside?

Set in the 1900s, The Provost of Eton’s Inheritance leads the investigators from the rarefied air of the college cloisters to the wilds of the English Marches, in this 7th edition Call of Cthulhu adventure inspired by one of H.P. Lovecraft literary heroes: the master of the ghost story, M.R. James.

"I suppose we should get going now," says Cynthia to the others. "There's no mention of anyone named O'Kent in any of the genealogy records."

"The book you read Miss Knight, Memorials of Herefordshire suggests that Jack O'Kent may be a nickname or even a kind of honorific for a cunning man figure, possibly out of folklore. His real name, if he has one, could be something else entirely.

I agree it's probably time we caught our train. We can compare notes on our journey. "

You leave the stuffy confines of the library, perhaps with more questions than answers. At least you are now free of the unsettling presence of the objectionable Lewis.

Collecting any belongings required for the journey takes a short amount of time, but with the help of the college porters you are soon leaving the confines of the school for the short trip to Eton railway station.

Please proceed to the next chapter at your leisure.
