    Have to protect my Cultist from being captured! No ill intentions (yet). We may need to be allies later to take down Tcho-Tcho. :D

    Now that Cthulhu has done his move this round, I can talk with you Mindflare.
    I notice you are feeling a bit hemmed in, but that's where I can help you. You just move through the South Atlantic or the South Pacific and I'll make sure you have the juice to take on Big C.
    I might even throw in a cathedral for you as well.

    He’s not hemmed in. He can Awaken Rhan’Tegoth in the Arctic with 6 Power at any time and move through my areas.

    Also, he doesn’t need to spread out like us. Standard Windwalker ploy is to build an army in the pole and then go stomp everyone with Ithacqua movement.

    Don’t let him divide and conquer!

    He has a Spellbook to take that gives power for Cathedrals to him and an enemy if it’s in the same Area as one of their gates.
    Worship Services (Ongoing) During the Gather Power phase, you earn 1 Power for each Cathedral that shares an area with an enemy Gate. That enemy also gains 1 Power.

    Wow.. lots of things to consider here in an 8-player game...

    Second turn Hastur is no longer a threat, but who will get 3 Doom from YS? Who will get 3 Power from Sleeper?!

    Will Sleeper try and take Power away from everyone in turn 2 to delay GOOs hitting the board? Is Tcho-Tcho going to hand out free High Priests to everyone in the first Doom phase?! When will Windwalker destroy Tcho-Tcho’s gate and is TT planning ahead for that?!!

    What about the Ancients? We haven’t seen them anywhere before. Will they use all of their delay capability in turn 1, or spread out those Un-Men?

    Will Crawling Chaos keep shaking the King in Yellow tree? And what is Black Goat doing in the corner over there? Gross!

    Do my written thoughts affect your gameplay? Who knows? Am I being open or manipulative?

    I assume Windwalker won't blow up my gate to summon Ithaqua because a) they want their big chilly boy with his army and b) they don't want me to immediately declare combat for a decent chance to unceremoniusly dispatch the wintry warrior (and earn myself a spellbook). But he might surprise me!

    Chilly boy, haha.

    The official song for Ithacqua is now Die Antwoord’s “Ugly Boy”.

    I believe I'd summon... Aw, crap. The R one (mobile, so being lazy about checking) first. Wouldn't destroy the gate, but would get me a GOO out there... And a spellbook. He also, ah, doesn't die easily, I think? I'm also pretty much playing it by ear so far, so...

    That’s right; the R one is hard to kill. You can assign a Kill or Pain to him, then in Post-Battle spend a Power to cancel it; even if you have already Hibernated.

    Edit: The catch is that not everything that can kill you is counted as a Battle. I’m looking at you, Dread Curse of Azathoth.

    Let me know if I did that wrong; every possibility that I messed it up/misinterpreted something.

    Got a couple questions for my fellow players: if you were to become first player, @mindflare77 , would you keep play order the same? And @Mordenthral , how would you break a possible tie for first player?

  • mindflare77mindflare77 OhioRegistered User regular
    I could be convinced to keep it the same or switch it; I don't have any strong feelings on it (maybe I should, but at this point, I do not).

    If you end up first player, I'd like to keep it the way it is, if it's all the same to you.

    You need a Gate to Summon.

    I’d have to see who was tied for first first. Just assumed at this point that it will be mindflare77.
