The Collection of Dr. Cagliostro

A wonderfully evocative tableau from the collection of curiosities gathered by the eminent Dr. Cagliostro. Currently curated by Oskar Hejll. Students of the bizarre and the occult, not to mention masterful propmaking, will find a visit most rewarding.

That’s a nice collection of items from the early 20th century. The only incongruity is the photo of the SS officer (Conrad Veidt?) that breaks up the flow of images and objects.

He has an interesting website just chock full of game campaign ideas and I urge you to visit. It has an impressive scope and if pseudo-conspiracy is you cup of tea, he pours it forth. I really respect the amount of effort it must have taken to produce such a detailed website.

I want to spend a little more time going over all the fascinating material on the site. CoastConFan, I noticed some 1930's Nazi explorer type stuff on the site, but the photo is of Otto Skorzeny, probably from 1944.

Thanks, surprisingly I didn’t recognize him. Otto Skorzeny’s biography reads like a Clive Cussler novel, it’s way to bizarre to be fiction. His post-war activities are nearly as weird as his WWII shenanigans.
