Dr. Shelly's Clinic


  • From the outside Dr. Shelly’s clinic is extremely nondescript.

Main Level

  • The inside is sparse.
  • Eggshell white waiting room with mint green vinyl chairs and an empty reception desk.
  • The back areas look to be surprisingly underused for how many people are listed on the sign in logs (many of the names seem fake).
  • Large supply closet is empty except for a shelf (hidden stairway to below).
  • There are cameras everywhere.

Hidden Lower Lab

The lower lab level revolves around the large Sterile Operating Theater[A] with an attached space leading away from it in each direction (B-E going clockwise).

Sterile Operating Theater [A]

  • Partially dissected person/frog.
  • Large tubes with different stages of frog-monster floating in viscous liquid.
  • Multiple tables with heavy duty restraints.
  • Extensive drills,saws, knives, syringes.

Staircase [B]

  • To the north of the operating theater.
  • The only way to get to the clinic from the lower lab.

Office/Living Area [C]

  • To the east of the operating theater.
  • A large converted office area.
  • Every inch of the room is covered in diagrams, photos, scientific notes interspersed with ancient languages and occult iconography.
  • A small desk has a single old leather book upon it (Ogdoad’s Well).
  • Tucked in the back of the tome is a receipt from B&H delivery.
  • Behind two movable whiteboards is a small cot and hot plate.
  • There is a CCTV monitor and door control system in this room.


An ancient tome written in an unknown language. Multiple diagrams within the book of a race of primordial humanoid frogs. Anything more than flipping through the book causes D4 stress.

Holding Pen/Sewer Exit [D]

  • To the south of the operating theater.
  • A wide hallway with reinforced doors at either end
  • Plexiglass holding pens line both sides of the hallway.
  • One pen has 0-3 Frog-Monsters
  • The other pen has 0-2 drugged humans
  • The farthest door opens on to the sewer.
  • All doors in this area can be controlled remotely from the office.

Walk-In [E]

  • To the west of the operating theater.
  • A freezer with multiple bodies stored within.
  • A rack filled with tagged samples on the back wall.
  • On the middle shelf are seven large vials of neon green liquid (labeled in an unknown language).

The Sewers

Exterior Entrance

The main entrance to the sewers is an abandoned work site that has been fenced off and boarded up.

  • Close inspection shows that (the fence has a large hole in it.
  • The boards have been removed.
  • There is evidence of heavy traffic in and out.

Interior Sewers

The sewers are dark, wet, and at times cramped.

  • As the investigators explore the tunnels the more they become filled with a thick, sticky membrane (like from the chamber in Aliens).
  • Use sound/shadow to indicate being followed, but actually they’re being led).

Things That Can Go Wrong Deep Below Ground

  1. Equipment lost or broken.
  2. Investigators get separated.
  3. Getting ambushed by a Frog-Monster.
  4. Caught in sticky membrane
  5. Getting lost/lose the path back.
  6. Hear the cries of a person in distress deeper in the sewers.

Crossroad Within the Deep

Eventually the investigators should reach a crossroads down deep within the sewer system. To the left is Dr. Shelly’s hidden lab (Holding Pen/Sewer Exit [D]) , and to the right leading deeper toward the Frog-Priests altar.

Provide Clues to what would be down either path.

  • Lab: A medical antiseptic scent, the drone of generators, fluorescent lights.
  • Altar: The flicker of flame, chant like droning, strange markings upon the wall, increased instances of membrane.

After a choice is made: This crossroads is a perfect place for the Frog-Monsters to set up a trap for when the party is trying to escape.

The Frog Priest's Altar

Off of a main sewer line is a side passage that curves into a chamber.

  • The space is filled with candles that illuminate the sigils painted along every inch of the wall
  • Opposite the entrance is a large altar made from multiple frog bodies splayed open in impossible angles.
  • Close inspection reveals that all the bodies making up the altar are still “alive.”
  • Kneeling before the altar is the Frog-Priest, often attended by two small Frog-Monsters, half the size of those they’ve seen before.
  • Investigators witnessing things in this space will receive stress. Most likely it would range from: Contact (D4 Stress) to Exposure (D6 Stress).
