    Hierophants increases Ubbo-Sathla's growth counter by 1. Take the Matyrdom spellbook.

    Does it hurt at all? Not getting free High Priests for these Spellbooks?

    Guess I forgot to ping @ArcSyn for that elder sign.

    Does handtracker not work anymore by the way? Seems like that would have been the easy solution but it's been literal years since I used it personally.

    Again, sorry for the delay, but i had to host family that I dont particularly care for and its oddly suspicious that my Mom's office christmas party was yesterday as well.

    Wouldnt be such a problem if my Aunt didnt try to find something wrong with everything. I really wanted to say that the hotel was just 15minutes down the road if she was that unhappy.

    It would have been, yes. admanb told me it was long gone. I died a little inside.

    I don’t know if tagging ArcSyn will work. Just send him a message.

    And BEN.. I think you are -never- supposed to give free Doom points! Dude! (Maybe that’s part of your notoriety.)

    Oh boo, that is too bad. Do you know the reason? Hosting issues, or admanb just didn't feel like supporting it anymore, or?

    Ritual! Tablets of the Gods activates, killing all three high priests and earning an Elder Sign for each, plus one for Ubbo. My buddy Sleeper can have a doom for borrowing Sycophancy.

    Listen, folks, we all miss high priests Oleg, Francis, and Jerry. But hey! They died for the glory of the Tcho Tcho. The good news is... new high priest positions are OPEN!!

    Earn two spellbooks. I'll take Terror and The Stars Are Right. High priests Karen and Jorge join the ranks, one in the Yukon and one in the Arctic. Welcome! We wish you a fulfilling, if not necessarily long, career.

    Geth roll 1d6

    Ubbo's growth counter goes up by 2 more points.

    15>9


    @mindflare77 for doom phase.

    So uh, how much do rituals cost now?

    And like I said, I blood sacrificed one of the acolytes in West Africa, which I think technically happens now?

  • SaurfangSaurfang Registered User regular
    I actually don't know, as the image of the ritual track was too low res on my phone. I made an educated guess of 6.

  • SaurfangSaurfang Registered User regular
    wind walker's rituals always cost five.

  • mindflare77mindflare77 OhioRegistered User regular
    At a glance, I think @NotoriusBEN Ritual'd at 6, so @Saurfang should have cost 7, right? Then mine at 5(8), so next ritual would be 9 cost? I could be completely wrong.

    Hm, yeah, I think with 10 power 9 means a pass on ritualing this turn then.

  • BrodyBrody The Watch The First ShoreRegistered User regular
    Right, NotoriusBEN paid 6 for his, Saurfang's cost 7, so he should be at 8 power, then mindflare pushed the cost up one more, so the next ritual should cost 9 Power.

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular
    Yea, resolution on phones is garbo.
    But its 5, 6,6, 7... i think

    Okay, I was really wrong with my guess.

    Ritual track: 5, 6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 10, Death.

    Brody was 5, Ben was 6, Saurfang was 6, I'd have been the third 6. So @jakobagger, it'd be 7 power. I think. Assuming I'm looking at the right thing.

    Unfortunately, Saurfang grabbed a neutral Spellbook, so none for you, yet! Also, are you giving Saurfang and Daemonis extra Doom points or knocking 2 off your Ritual? @mindflare77

    In 8-player, Ritual costs are 5-6-6-6-7-7-7-7-8-8-8-8-9-9-9-10.

    Only 5 for WW if he has that Spellbook.

    apologies, @NotoriusBEN . It seemed like a natural choice for Tcho Tcho, given our ability to squeeze elder signs out of high priests.

    By my count, there is one 6 power ritual left then. If that is correct, I'm doing it. Turns out it was 7? I think I will pass this time then. Also still blood sacrificing West Africa acolyte.

    Losing 2 is not a nice trade to keep them in the dirt.

    Yea, stars will be nice for these freebie signs, but you aint going to get a power engine out of it.

    Isnt it? They each get 1 or you dont get 2 because they are both grubbing for it?

    They each got one from you, which is liveable, but now also one each from mindflare77.

    If you can get elder signs for cheap, taking stars book is akin to making a power engine. It would work extremely well for Yellow Sign, since desolation only costs 1 and they get elder signs when they do so (caveat being hastur is out). So looking at it that way, yellow sign is power neutral at worst, since turning in their elder signs always gives at least 1power. And they get power for feast at descrated places. They can just go and go and go. All for the cost of zingaya or maybe He who must not be named.

    Compared to tcho. Will never gain power from it, only mitigate the cost, maybe. Because high priest sacks are where they get their elder signs and they cost 3power to recruit. It is powerful right now, since you have 3 essentially free signs, but that value is gone next doom phase.

    But you also have a problem when you reveal signs. You show everyone exactly how far from winning you are and that power gain might be needed to fend off the mob.

    We're on the same page then. I think the Stars book is straight up bonkers for Yellow Sign. I wasn't trying to get the kind of engine you're describing going; I was just trying to defray my power costs.
