It’s an old adage that academic politics are so vicious because the stake are so low. But as leading scholars at Miskatonic University, the fabled seat of learning, nestled in witch-haunted Arkham, you know the stakes couldn’t be higher.In Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection, you are all vying with each other for the prestigious position of Head of the Library Committee. This evening, you are gathering in Dr. Armitage’s office, where he will decide who is to receive the coveted position. But just as the meeting is about to get underway, you hear blood-curdling screams...
The game is a quest. An extremely dangerous quest. Dr Henry Armitage, Chief Librarian, needs you to search the perilous Restricted Collection for fragments of lore from among the grimoires, and recover pieces of a particular sigil to help him defeat the foul abomination that has invaded the university.
You explore the Restricted Collection for the things he needs. However it is a perilous journey and you must be prepared to flee before you are driven mad! The victor is the professor who finds the most sets, while retaining a semblance of sanity. Also, look out for hapless wandering graduate students as they can aid in your defenses!
