A rotting mansion lurks in the bayou near New Orleans. Can the demons of its former occupants be cleansed?

The Things We Feed is a scenario of claustrophobic and uncanny horror. It is set in New Orleans, Louisiana, in the year 1926. The mystery surrounds a dead artist, his family history, his strange home, and a supernatural infestation. The scenario is suitable for two to five players. It has a playtime of two to four sessions, but can be shortened into a single session.

Danton Garot was the talk of the New Orleans bohemian scene. The surrealist painter’s  depictions of odd landscapes, warped portraits, and otherworldly beings captivated the imaginations of those who viewed them. On November 12th, 1926, this rising star faded. Danton Garot was found dead in his home. A calling debt collector saw the young man with his throat slit. His final painting was sprayed with his own blood. It is now November 14th. The investigators have been contacted by one Hector Falstaff. This eccentric and wealthy man wishes for the investigators to complete a simple task. The investigators are to search the house and retrieve a single book for him.

Content Warnings: suicide, familial abuse, claustrophobia, ommetaphobia, unreality, surreal horror

This scenario was originally written and designed with the support of the November 2022 edition of the Write Your First Adventure course from Storytelling Collective, and was updated on July 19th, 2023

Any suggestions on what happens to the necklace after the adventure?

Hmm, never thought of that! Witch stones are a real folkloric concept, so using some of its more off the wall abilities could be interesting. Any creatures who are invisible like Lloigor or Star Vampires might be able to be seen through it, at the cost of any other beings from the Interstellar Spaces being drawn to the entrance it is always creating. It may even be used as an eye for Hastur or its worshippers like Lucas to spy on the investigators who may still have it.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
