    About the adventure

    A fateful night of January 7th, 1931. Waverly Express, train Carlisle-Edinburgh. It was supposed to be a quiet short trip. The train is rather empty, as you would expect just after the New Year. All the passengers have their motives to be onboard, but little do they know what awaits for them in this cursed train. As darkness blankets the landscape, the stage is set for a series of life-changing events. You are about to embark on a night of terror, trapped on a train hurtling towards an unimaginable nightmare. As the train barrels through the bleak countryside, strange occurrences begin to unfold. Whispers of ancient secrets and eldritch forces permeate the air, their subtle tendrils ensnaring the senses. The players find themselves drawn into a web of intrigue, their fates intertwined with an insidious plot that threatens not only their lives - but also their sanity. As the night deepens, the players must pool their resources, unravel cryptic clues, and uncover the truth before it consumes them. Only by delving into the darkest depths of their own courage and intellect can they hope to survive the relentless terror that will haunt them during the longest night in their life. So gather your brave investigators and prepare them for a harrowing journey. The train awaits, its wheels screeching on the tracks as it hurtles towards the unknown. Can they solve the puzzle before madness claims them all? Let's find out.
