    I may have to come up with another solution for Elder Sign distribution. I haven’t heard back from MrBody recently, for various reasons, about handing them out.

    I was going to maybe pop a high priest to go first, but it seems like @Brody is going to force my hand here.

    Sorry, I realize its probably considered rude to snipe cultists like this, but it seemed like my most correct option.

    @Brody, you absolutely need to get a cultist! I harbor you no ill will. I may not have been the best target, though, given that I can sacrifice a high priest for power and summon a monster to defend my Yukon boys.

    Hmm... I could get a spellbook right now and save some cultists from being nabbed... but its tcho tcho, and he gets a a 0 power GOO on turn 2 and he can defend himself with a spellbook pick. also, its one of the only times taking a tcho tcho cultist is going to be worth anything other than hindering it.

    @brody for his last action.

    Not rude. Just sets you up for revenge. If you give something in return, it all works out. Really though, it’s one of your Spellbook reqs. :)

    You know what -- you go ahead and snack on that cultist, @Brody . Hopefully I can earn some future consideration from you by throwing Cultist Fred to the proverbial wolves. (Or is it literal wolves? I don't know how you Crawling Chaos types like to do your human sacrifices)

    Sorry, Fred! All for the glory of Ubbo Sathla or whatever.

    As I haven’t heard from @MrBody are there any lurkers that would use random.org or a spreadsheet (I have one to share) and toss us Elder Signs as needed?

    Greetings Fred, I'd like you meet our lord and ruiner, Nyarlathotep. Some people may call him Nyarly for short, but those people leave very short, although still fulfilling lives, further opening the gate for our lord and ruiner, Nyarlathotep.

    Summon a Reanimated in Indian Ocean.

    I know this is showing my hand, but in the interest of speeding this along.
    If Tcho Tcho kills a high priest for power in the last seconds of this Turn 1 action phase, I'll summon an Un-man in Indian Ocean and give that power to Crawling Chaos.

    If not I think we are done with this turn.

    You can’t perform an ‘Action’ when you’re out of power. Summon Monster is an ‘Action’ and requires your turn, even though it costs 0. Killing a High Priest for 2 Power isn’t an ‘Action’. Neither is Devolve, or Rhan’Tegoth’s immortal BS.

    but again, it goes to show how broken Tcho tcho is that they can basically pull a ''lethargy'' out of their hat with zero consequences.

    I think all factions have one or two things that are really cool. That’s one of the TT things. But if they are using their HPs for that, then they aren’t getting Elder Signs for them from Tablet of the Gods. I think it’s balanced. You could do it with your HP too.

    That’s very unfair! What did he give you in return?! Why are you doing this to me, @mindflare77 ? That means I’ll have to go... er, wait.. hmm. Looks like I’d be 5th either way. Carry on! :biggrin:

    I’ll do tallies and map update after work.

    I get doom phase shenannigans with Dematerializing.
    and then how do the neutral beasts work?
    do they go before/after my Dematerializing can I do it at any point as long as its still doom phase?

    I’m home from work early. Sick kid. Will work on turn end soon.

    You’ll do Doom phase stuff when it’s your turn in the Doom phase to declare a Ritual, including the purchase of a neutral Monster. There are a couple FAQ exceptions to this, but nothing currently in play.

    Couple things here, you don't choose which one you Capture. You 'Capture Cultist' and the opponent decides which one.

    Also, @Brody choose a Spellbook.

    Brody to choose a Spellbook.

    Gather Power:
      GC - 2 Gates (x2) + 7 Cultists (x1) = 11
      SL - 2 Gates (x2) + 6 Cultists (x1) = 10
      YS - 1 Gates (x2) + 6 Cultists (x1) + 1 Feast (x1) = 9
      BG - 2 Gate (x2) + 6 Cultists (x1) = 10
    >>WW - 2 Gates (x2) + 6 Cultists (x1) + 4 Hibernate = 14
      TT - 2 Gates (x2) + 7 Cultists (x1) = 11
      AN - 2 Gates (x2) + 6 Cultists (x1) = 10
      CC - 2 Gates (x2) + 6 Cultists (x1) + 1 Sacrifice (x1) = 11
    

    @mindflare77 , WW is First player and needs to choose a Spellbook; direction of play was kept the same.

    Doom:
      GC - 2
      SL - 2
      YS - 1
      BG - 2
    >>WW - 2
      TT - 2
      AN - 2
      CC - 2
    

    Declare in new player order if you're doing a ritual and any other Doom shenanigans.

    Howl spellbook. Pay 2 Doom for Gnorri, place Gnorri in Antarctica. No ritual.

    (I'm assuming I should be waiting to Ritual until I have a GOO or two, and/or more Gates. Is this correct? #Newbie)

    You don't need more Gates if you have enough Gnorri on the map, but at least one GOO is advised for the Elder Sign.

    No ritual.

    Pay 1 high priest: Awaken Ubbo Sathla in the Arctic, take Hierophants spellbook. Free high priests for everyone! Except @Mordenthral , who couldn't wait to open his Doomsmas present.

    I'll put my free high priest right back in the Arctic; everyone else needs to place their own.

    Pay 2 doom to recruit the Elder Things. Place one Elder Thing in the Arctic.


    @NotoriusBEN , Merry Doomsmas!

    Well, I wanted to protect myself against a turn 2 Sleeper delay. I couldn't be sure you were going to take Hierophants.

    My High priest goes in the only place he could go, Europe. Since I have only 1 Doom point I can't partecipate in the monster buying, so I preemptively pass on my doom phase. This set of rules is kind of hostile to YS...
