The reprint boasts updates to some of the existing scenarios, six new scenarios, extra maps, a player-specific Traveler's Companion, die-cut Simalcrum, postcards, a matchbook, luggage stickers, all the Keeper aids in the original, and more.

Ruffians burned his house down, and threaten his life, all because he dared to track down the infamous Sedefkar Simalcrum, a cult artifact that promises unimaginable power to whoever can put it back together again.

At the moment it's scattered across Europe, but the Professor thinks he knows where most of the pieces are, and how to destroy them.

Unfortunately the latest cult attack left him incapacitated with third degree burns over most of his shattered body, so it's up to the players to collect the missing bits, before some evil madman reassembles it and gains ultimate power.
