The Horror from the Blizzard
Any scientific expedition to the Arctic expects plenty of risk. However, Dr. Welham of Miskatonic University's survey uncovers far more than the usual geologic and ethnographic samples. During the severe, rock-scouring blizzards of the far north, the team comes across a hideous object from an elder age. A relic that brings earth shattering terror in its wake... This story is loosely inspired by H. P. Lovecraft's short story, Polaris. In that story, a modern man is troubled by recurring dreams, gaining in intensity. During these visions, he assumes the role of a sentry guarding the pass against the invading Inutos from the west. However, the watcher falls asleep. This time, when he awakes, screaming, the sentry wakes as a modern man and realizes that he has failed the marble city of Olathoe.
