Why was the Grimoire not called the Necronomicon? Too easy? Seems like a missed opportunity. However, one I will be picking up.

I also enjoyed listening to this. When I heard about the scenario 'Mohole' I immediately thought of the following Dr Who scenario:

Inferno
"The Inferno" is the nickname given to a drilling project financed by the British government, at Eastchester in England, which is intended to penetrate the Earth's crust in order to tap pockets of Stahlman's Gas: a new energy source discovered by Professor Stahlman, the originator of the project, which he believes will provide boundless amounts of cheap energy. Stahlman is ill-tempered, and obsessive about any interference with his work.
Wikipedia: Inferno

And I can think of two other films, the 1965 movie "Crack in the World" and the 2000 Made-for-DVD film "Nautilus"...
"If you do good, you'll live forever, if you do bad, you'll die hearing a single note for I am the one true sound...", Fragment found in a cult hideout.
