A murder...
A painting that speaks of the past...
An unexpected visitor...

A Boarding House is a meeting place for strangers. When one of the tenants appears murdered, everyone is a suspect.

An intricated pulp horror scenario where the players will face their own humanity to give a solution to the enigma.



The Boarding House at Arkham Street is an adventure for Horror RPGs inspired by the works of H.P.
