A group of students from the famous Miskatonic University set out on a scientific expedition to the Ural Mountains.  The journey was a two week endeavor to reach Otorten Mountian from Vizhai, the last northern settlement before the expansive mountain range.

Miskatonic's department of biological sciences has expressed a singular interest in the wildlife native to the region after receiving a urgent letter from their colleagues in Siberia informing them of a few strange occurrences in the area; The university has since put together a group of graduate students, along with Yuri Defago, Professor Algernon Dyatlov, and Professor Alexander Cathcart to survey the 20km area of interest.
