The Memorial is a contemporary horror scenario inspired by Lars Von Trier’s cult TV series Riget (1994), Milos Forman’s One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975) and The Killer Nun (1979), an Italian “video nasty” classic starring Anita Eckberg and Alida Valli. There’s undoubtedly some Green Wing, ER, House M.D. and Scrubs in it, hopefully not that much, as it is meant to be horror, after all. The Memorial was previously published by Postmortem Studios, part of the Postmortem Giallo series. The new Wretched Memorial is meant to be run using Wretchploitation, an old-school game which emulates the exploitation movie genre and it also includes a few plot hooks meant for Wretched Époque. Nevertheless, you will find it easily adapted it to most contemporary horror role-playing games.
The scenario takes place in a rundown old hospital,The Ernest Spencer Memorial, especially in its psychiatric ward. This surreal institution is populated by bizarre people with a troubled past and where strange things occur frequently. Part of those occurrences is of supernatural origin, but some of them are illegal experiments and common medical malpractice
