Read on only if you've played through Case One.

I cannot determine from retracing my steps, as it were, to how one can find Thomas Illsley.

While we did pretty well on the case (we didn't know how much we needed to know in order to score well, but ended up with 20 points, -4 for 4 locations after Armitage = 16, a win.)

Afterward, I went through all the location descriptions to see what I missed - and I couldn't find how you would come upon Illsley's home...

Yea.... there were a few things like that I didn't see as well...

I'm a bit worried there are massive misprints and more awaiting in further cases. I'll keep playing and see what happens. Hoping it's just case 1 but.... well have to wait and see.

He's definitely in there, doesn't one of the professors point you at him? :)

Enjoy...

Cheers, Hal

You get it from Leonore Robinson. She's the second source listed in the rule book. It also seems like there should be a way of going to the graveyard, investigating the weird goings on there, and following the card back to Leonore, but I can find the lead to the graveyard in the first place?

Anyone figure out how to get the Bee's Diner lead at the end?

Ah, Bee's Diner is from the police station.

As for the graveyard, I can't see anything that leads you there at all?

The story from the PnP newspaper was:
Quote:

Church leaders have been quick to quash rumors that the Old Arkham Graveyard is now haunted. Representatives from several denominations spoke at last night’s town meeting. They dismissed the figure that many have seen moving amongst the headstones as the work of a vagrant or bored student as no damage was discovered.


That leads you to the graveyard, which takes you to Lenore, then to Illsley. But that story is missing from the printed paper, so the only way is to visit Lenore directly (as a source from the rulebook) and then follow the lead from her to the graveyard, which just leads back to her. And when you do visit the graveyard, you ask the staff about "the stories in the local paper". Which aren't there any more.

I'm assuming it's just a tribute to Case 7 (?) of SHCD where they did the same "reworking the newspaper and missing an important story out" thing!
