The story created by Ben has all the elements you’d expect in a one-shot investigation. There is a mystery to solve that is well laid out in a concise, yet colorful fashion. The key locations are nicely detailed and everything seems to click and work.
Although the scenario is linear, it is by no means a complete investigator “railroad”; he also includes ways to spice it up a little and a resourceful Keeper will be able to adapt scenes on the fly. At the end of the day, there is an endpoint that must be reached.
Without a doubt Too Close to Home is worth picking up! With Too Close to Home's linear nature, I think it would be great for in-store and convention one-shots.
