    Update posted.

    I don't blame you. Turn 2 Hastur is hard to beat!

    I still don't have my 2 Elder Signs from @MrBody yet, but send him a message and see if you get yours.

    Was I supposed to get an elder sign for summoning Nyarlathotep?

    Along that vein... What actions/situations trigger elder sign gains? #Newbie

    Generally you get one per faction GOO (not independent GOOS) when you do a Ritual. Other than that, it’s specific to certain factions or neutral stuff.

    Cthulhu gets one whenever he Awakens any GOO.
    YS gets one for Hastur and whenever he Desecrates.
    Nyarlathotep gets them (or Power) from smacking other GOOs around.

    Etc

    Am I right that I have 10 power? If so, this is my move:

    Summon Shub-Niggurath in West Africa, eat two of the cultists there. Power 10>2

    Gain spellbook 'Thousand Young'

    At the end of Windwalker's action:
    Dimensional Shambler materializes in North America West.

    Action: Everyone gets their cheapest monster for free to place down.
    Pick up spellbook Unholy Grounds.
    9->9


    If Tasthogua tries to consume my cultist -or- monsters, I initiate battle on my next go around and I blow the cathedral -and- eliminate Tsathogua. If you try to lethargy your way into consuming my units I initiate battle and blow the cathedral and eliminate Tsathogua.

    Then I let tcho tcho and CC feast on what's left...

    That's not very diplomatic...

    Keep in mind you can blow -any- Cathedral. It doesn't have to be the one in the Battle area.

    I get a Deep One in South Pacific.

    Everyone remember to place your cheapest Monster somewhere.

    Then why didn't you come build a Cathedral in my area? I would enjoy the extra Power. Now I have to travel to where your Cathedral is and you don't get to ask me to bludgeon someone as a return favour.

    You don’t need any free Power, with your Gnorri sitting there, waiting to give you extra Doom points... Actually, if any faction needs extra Power, it’s usually Sleeper.

    Understood.

    Night Gaunt placed in South Asia.

    Use The Thousand Forms. 1->1. Players to decide how to pay up. Or nobody pays and just gives me a little bit of juice.

    Say, whoever gets the 3 Doom points from Yellow Sign needs to give the Servitors to Tcho-Tcho. Just seems to be common practice in this game from what I’ve read. Haha.

    Will depend on timing. I have a Con to go to on Sunday; will be playing “full” Arkham Horror, then a big game of Cthulhu Wars with, like, real pieces and stuff. That may be more than enough gaming time ignoring the family.

    Two solutions I can think of for Elder Signs, so we don't have to impose on any non-players:

    1) Honour system: I trust you all until I know that I can't. :) I could take the list of ES values to random.org, randomise it and pull the top 2 for myself, then send the list of 34 remaining numbers to whoever gets the next ES, and they do the same. All you have to do is just not crunch the list looking for which numbers are already missing. This could be made easier to avoid by doubling the number of ES of each value to bloat the list, but keep the spread the same?

    2) Someone with 'skillz' could make a spreadsheet with a button that draws from the first of a list of randomised hidden cells containing the ES values, deletes the top value, shifts the list up and possibly logs that one was drawn. This spreadsheet could be passed around.
