|The SCI gathers in the Temple Club library. Vinculus lurks at the back|
What I found particularly interesting is that the cabal is running this event in a very organised way, similar to a lot of pen 'n' paper games I used to play. We are being assigned missions and then have to complete them, either in-game or on the roleplay forums, by investigating a series of leads that have been created.
It's a new and intersting approach to guild roleplay that I haven't experienced before; much more organised than I'm used to. When I've run and participated in events in games in the past they have been very freeform, but I like the direction and set objectives that SCI have come up with. As I said it makes the event feel much more like a real game of Call of Cthulhu or something. It must be a hell of a lot of work to put something like this together, so I'm grateful for all those organising it.

Intel has picked up several leads which you should follow-up on:You can follow the plot and what happens on the SCI forums here, and Vinculus' initial volunteer report is here.
1. A Ms. Zhara Neferet is said to have been passing rumors at the Cafe Giza, regarding Akhenaten.
2. The Venice Information Network's inter-library index shows that an aged tomb entitled "Gods and Demigods of the Egyptian Pantheon" by Sir Elrick Ashington exists at Insmouth Academy's library. This may be useful.
3. Cult leader Ghazal Al-Karawan, AKA: "The Egret" is said to have valuable information regarding enemy cultist forces and their plans. Infiltration of the cult and capture is advised.
