The year is 1921 and two students from Providence, R.I. are exploring the tunnel system that honeycombs College Hill under Brown University. They are seeking a site for Professor Vasil Kozoff to conduct his experiments in relativity. In the course of their explorations they discover a huge cache of mysterious crates. These crates contain artifacts that are identical to the religious, mystical, magical and mythological relics described in the writings of the ages. But they soon discover that these strange and puzzling artifacts are not all the tunnels have to offer. Soon they finds themselves locked in a savage battle with a Lovecroftian monstrosity that has plagued humanity for thousands of years and that is just the beginning of this tale.
