Disagree. Take the spear and I'll trade you for it when we're anywhere close.
fauxgirlfriend, I'll take the spear.
Why is my post from three days ago the last post in this thread? I demand MYTHOS!
Fauxgirlfriend, you should probably put up some crosses and do something about the vampire that keeps draining your blood and making you sick. If you dual wield crosses you'll have +2 to your horror and +6 to your combat checks.
That only works on the vampire, though. With her luck she'll pull out a Dhole next and really be up sh*t creek.
Everyone is up shit creek against a Dhole. Well, unless you have a ready supply of clue tokens, a good weapon or two, and Mandy for rerolls. Seriously, fuck those guys.
No gate opens, no new monsters appear. Uneventful for a change, additionally no new doom token.However the Deep One track gains a token because the gate failed to open.Another clue appears at the Black Cave, if anyone is brave enough to gather it.The Servitor flies off into the sky, eagerly awaiting the chance to swoop down on anyone foolish enough to end their turn on the street.The Shoggoth moves into the Northside Streets.North Point Lighthouse rift opens.The Deep ones only need one more token to rise up, however they have failed once more.
Do I need to travel to Innsmouth to get my ass into a gate whose Other World is not already occupied?
Also, Mandy should have a clue token on her personal story.
Anyone in Innsmouth is encouraged to spend whatever tokens of mine they may need in order to clear that track.
I have the clue on it now.
Have you considered how easy it will be to use your elder signs and clues, to hit 9 Doom Tokens multiple times to milk Patrice's secondary ability..
Can we get a re-listing of all open gates, their locations, and the investigators in them? The markers are hidden behind the monsters. :(
I think I want to go to the train station, but am not certain.
Oh dear, hang on the Hound of Tindalos, how did I miss him, he was meant to move, to Akachi by my count. Time for a map update to fix that up.
Esoteric Order of Dagon:
Speak With Bread can exit to either Devil Reef or the Science Building.
Hanzii heads back to the Esoteric Order of Dagon
Mandy will return to Independence Square.
Alright, evading time. Since Hanzii is in an Other World during the Upkeep phase, he cannot give me his Visions buff, so I must resign myself to being 2 Sneak / 4 Speed instead of 3/3.
My first roll to get away from the Hound of Tindalos fails. I spend one clue token, and then another. Success!
I roll 3 dice to sneak from the Chthonian. Success!
I run over to the Science Building. If
Speak With Bread chooses to exit out the Science Building, then if my understanding is correct, since I don't get sucked into it until my Arkham Encounter phase, when she comes out of the portal she can have my two Tomes (Book of the Believer and Cabala of Saboth).
Then it's whoomph into oh fuck R'lyeh.
Patrice is left with precisely five clue tokens.
Science Building it is. I might as well make use of those Tomes, Aaron.
Also, casting Alchemical Process since the sanity cost is currently 0. No, but worth a shot.
(Edited for clarity.)
fauxgirlfriend, my special ability only applies the first time the 9th space is filled. It's in the errata. :)
If we were sitting at a table right now, when SWB went to use her clue token, I'd have been all "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" with the slow-mo leap and everything.
This is incredible news, in my real life games of Arkham there is a player than has always insisted it was never changed, and slightly ashamed about it now but I never even considered someone might be willing to bluff about something so ridiculous.
Patrice is currently at 5 clue tokens, although there are now clues absolutely everywhere.
Apart from that I just need movement from
Lazy Shiftless Bastard because
AaronSofaer moved and the other three players don't have any real choice in destination.
Daisy is going to move her speed/sneak to 3/2 and go to the Witch's House to deal with the Cthonian and the Hound.
Edit: Also move Fight/Will to 1/4 just in case.
Hound not evaded. Clue token 1: Hound not evaded. CT2 Not. CT3 Not. CT4 Not. CT5: EVADED!!!
Daisy will place the Time Bomb with zero clue tokens on it down at the Witch's House.
Bye bye, horrible, horrible, monsters.
Hm, does Flesh Ward work against Time Bombs?
Yorick is in a sticky place now. Since his blessing disappeared he'd need 9 combat dice to reasonably hope to kill the shoggoth, but the most he can swing is 7 and he'd also probably be spending clues to avoid going insane on the horror check. So on one hand I've never seen a Curiousity Shoppe encounter and there's nothing useful Yorick can really do on this board right now, and on the other hand I could go get murdered by a Shoggoth since there's nothing useful Yorick can really do on this board right now. Decisions, decisions...
When your choices are "go get murdered by a Shoggoth" and "don't go get murdered by a Shoggoth," your path should be reasonably clear.
If not, she'll go out with a bang.
You make a compelling argument. Let's see what happens if you actually sit and browse in the curiousity shoppe! Stand back ladies and gentlemen, this has never been done before!
But what about Daisy?
This is definitely a wise choice.
Flesh Ward should protect against one source of stamina loss, aka the Time Bomb. Given a good roll or some clue tokens.
Who are we waiting on? It's been TWO DAYS!
I think it might be
Probably the person who has had exams up to his nose, dunno, might have been him ;)
That's a poor place to put your exams. Generally they work better on a desk. :)
I know, took me a week to dislodge them
are you there god
fauxgirlfriend, it's me Kat. I've been having some unclean thoughts, involving books and reading, lately. So I thought that I should repend my sins by picking up another clue token at unvisited isle.
THIS is what you call borrowing my sword? Go stab things!
there's nothing to stab :/
Hmmm. My bad for killing everything? :)
There's always a shoggoth! Just because it reduces your physical weapon bonus by half and has three toughness doesn't mean you can't stab it!
Alright encounters coming as soon as I hit my nanowrimo word quota for today.
Hanzii Elder Signs the Esoteric Order of Dagon, sealing the location. The Doom Track slips back by one.
Speak With Bread, another elder sign, another doom token removed.
Lazy Shiftless Bastard
@NateThere are no more Hounds of Tindalos to be drawn so no new one can appear, which spell do you want?@KatMandy closes the gate in Indie Square and will seal it if allowed to drain all Patrice's clues.
fauxgirlfriend, I was actually hanging out for an ENCOUNTER in the Shoppe! $1 doesn't buy a lot of unique items!
Akachi succeeds at her Speed-1 check.
Mandy is welcome to drain my clue bank.
