How do you incorporate these coins into your scenarios and campaigns?
There is an official backstory consisting of a newspaper article about "The Murderous Rampage of Alfred Harrison."
Harrison was a friendly and upstanding member of the community of Bellbrook, Pennsylvania. He was a retired metallurgist from the United States Mint in nearby Philadelphia. On January 31, 1908, he killed four people.
It was discovered after his rampage that he had been hired to make some "unusual" coins.
The backstory is open ended and leaves many areas that Keepers can have their Investigators explore. The nature of the coins is undetermined and it is theorized that they could be used as a means of worship, a symbol of allegiance, who curry favor, or as a means of protection.
