    Mortal Combat!

    Start a fight with Windwalker 1->0

    Pre-battle, bring in the Hunting Horror.

    Precisely. As I said, it'll be bloody. And I'll be pretty much replaying this round next round (resummoning GOOs, losing MoM gate, etc.), just with less power.

    No response or anything. Can't do anything but fight and hope. So... Someone else to roll, cause I dunno the commands and am on mobile?

    I'll give it a shot.

    geth roll 6d6 for Windwalker
    geth roll 9d6 for CC

    Windwalker:
    6d6 19 [6d6=6, 2, 2, 2, 4, 3]
    CC:
    9d6 43 [9d6=6, 3, 5, 6, 5, 6, 4, 5, 3]

    @Mordenthral since there's high probabilty of Elder signs production now, I'm still missing my Hastur elder sign. Who I was to @ for that?

  • SaurfangSaurfang Registered User regular
    If Chaos isn't crazy lucky with rolls, your GOOs should just be pained. We'll just have to see the rolls.

  • mindflare77mindflare77 OhioRegistered User regular
    Wellp. There's my karma, I suppose? So, kill Gnoph-Keh, Acolyte, Rhan Tegoth. Pain Ithaqua to Mountains. @Brody for one Kill, one Pain. Summon Wendigo in SA from Cannibalism.

    As it is written in the third post, you sure can. But I don't have any other sources on Ancients handy, so can't confirm.
    @Brody also have to choose between 6 power, 3 power and 2 elder signs or 4 elder signs.
    So if you can, killing Nyarly isn't a bad idea...

    @NotoriusBEN I was going to say that it probably did count for battles you aren't in, but then noticed that Madness specifies that it includes battles I did not participate in.

    Checking things before finishing my move, sorry.

    Nope, you can't. Just reread the rule, and postbattle ability can be used by non involved faction only if it specifically said so (like Black Goat Necrophagy).

    Kill the Hunting Horror, Pain Nyarlathotep, claim the Gate, going to 4 gates and claiming the Madness book.

    I'll take 6 Power. Nyarlathotep will retreat to East Africa.

    Buy my 5th book. Invisibility.


    @Mordenthral to move to the next phase.

    No @Brody .. you gotta spend that power this phase if you keep it.

    By the way, my kaiju are not GOOs, they are Terrors, completely different.

    Look at what you wrought Sleeper! This turn is insanity! And we were all insane to begin with!

    I remember reading about it during the kickstarter campaign and managed to track down the reference. Not sure if I'm allowed to link because it's a kickstarter, but here's the relevant quote:

    2) Unholy Ground – their signature spellbook. If a battle happens in an area containing your cathedral, you can destroy a cathedral (from anywhere) post-battle to eliminate an enemy Great Old One that was in the battle. This is pretty scary for your enemies, and means their Great Old Ones tend to avoid your Cathedral areas.

    Hmmm. Actually, I'm not sure if that clarifies or not! I'll try to find something more definitive.

    Edit2: okay, I always thought this meant Ancients didn't even have to be involved in the battle, but it doesn't specifically say so here! I'm leaning towards they can't activate the Cathedral if they weren't involved.

    Oh duh... spellbook requirement, you did spend the power, brody

    So, current status: @Brody is waiting on @Mordenthral to make a ruling on Cathedrals for @NotoriusBEN, yes? And then it's to @Mordenthral to officially move us to the next phase?

    @Brody , buying Invisibility with the 6 Power, or with 4 Power and leaving 2 for this round?

    You have to be involved in the Battle to use Unholy Ground (for now, the power may be reworded before release.)

    Map is updated.

    Note that Sleeper only has 11 Power until the Doom phase. @Brody to decide direction of play. After that, declare if you are doing a Ritual, in order, and also mention any Doom phase shenanigans (Blood Sacrifice, Ubbo Growth, Death from Below, etc.)

    If you do Ritual, declare if you are giving extra Doom to Tcho-Tcho and/or Sleeper, or getting 2 Doom less from the Ritual.

    Send messages to @ArcSyn for Elder Signs.

    Also, all Elder Things must be in the Mountains of Madness by the end of next turn, or Tcho-Tcho forfeit to the spirit of HPL.

    @Mordenthral
    No Ritual (or other things) for me.

    @Brody , note your Power usage and also whether you are giving extra Doom points to Tcho-Tcho and Sleeper, or taking less Doom from your Ritual. (See Tcho-Tcho’s Sycophancy faction ability which Sleeper is copying.)

    To get us on point.. ‘backwards’ means to the left? I made an assumption that I was next because you pinged me, but that wouldn’t be backwards, I think.

    The first 5 Power Ritual is now done, 16 -> 11 Power for @Brody . Send a message to ArcSyn asking for an Elder Sign and declare your choice for the double Sycophancy.

    I believe it costs 5 power this round? And I'll take 2 less on my Ritual.

  • BrodyBrody Cabot CoveRegistered User regular

    Not just this round, it’s 5 Power for the first Ritual, then it moves up to the next cost (6) for the next player to do one. If we all did a Ritual this Doom phase and next Doom phase the game would be over. :)

    Also, @Saurfang gets a Spellbook (I forsee him getting all remaining 3 this phase, so Windwalker will probably get one too.)

    Edit: Fun fact. Chance of rolling three 6’s on four dice is 20 in 1296; or 1.5% :cry:
