    Detained sucks though. Thinking about using a clue.

    Edit: ...but I'd only have a 33% chance of success. Barf. Thoughts?

    You're spending a clue to gain a clue though, so you have 1/3 chance of being even and 2/3 of losing the clue. Is a turn worth more than 2/3 of a clue?

    Probably not, unless the Bad Things of Detained is Dark Pact. :lol:

    I'll stick with being Detained.

    Geth roll 3d6t5 for Find The Ship

    Alright, end of encounters.

    @jdarksun is detained while poking around the Silver Twilight Lodge.
    79043c09mkpm.png

    @Phyphor hangs out with a lizard man, testing Norman's sanity somewhat but being otherwise insightful (current sanity = 4)

    @Daemonis assists the Syndicate, and makes an appeal to the council.
    2gn9hvb7zrjt.png
    With only one clue, the appeal falls on deaf ears.

    @Auralynx finds the strange white boat, and pays the toll. The rumor is solved, and the threat of immediate reality collapse is no longer present.

    Then the Mythos Phase. Global warming rears its ugly head.
    0u7nyfslob6c.png

    The omen advances to red, causing doom to advance by one due to the gate in Arkham.
    The reckoning is uneventful, with only the raving conspiracy theorist friend of Auralynx possibly doing anything.
    A gate spawns in Shanghai, accompanied by another Cultist.

    And then the heat wave. Each investigator loses 3 health or becomes delayed. Your choice.

    Current board:

    Auralynx to roll for the Conspiracy Theorist, and everyone to decide between heat-stroke or napping.
    Either way, feel free to start taking your actions if you choose not to nap.

    Take a hit

    2. Move to Himalayas

    Clue encounter

  • ChrysisChrysis Registered User regular
    @jdarksun I think you get your second action now, as you've broken out of jail and discarded the restriction.

    @jdarksun procures the services of the Cat Burglar, who is replaced by a Private Investigator hot on the trail.

    Oh, on a miss I can discard something from the market, right? Figured we needed some new cards there. Once we hear from Phyphor I'll pick a thing. It'll probably be the Witch Doctor since I can pull him back with my card power.

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    I think I will take the health damage
    1. rest to heal
    2. try to bless myself
    Geth roll 3d6t5 for Isis' blessing

    Isis' blessing:
    3d6t5 0 [3d6t5=4, 2, 2]

  • AuralynxAuralynx Darkness is a perspective Watching the ego workRegistered User regular
    Ok, it's the witch doctor getting trashed, then.

    kshu0oba7xnr.png

  • ChrysisChrysis Registered User regular
    Everyone loses 3 health, and Phyphor heals. @jdarksun and @Daemonis are at 4 health, @Phyphor and @Auralynx at 3.
    Attempting to bless himself, Norman gets a little confused and just can't remember what to say.
    k5og79luidxu.png
    No repercussions for his lapse however.

    Leo attempts to purchase things, but is a little short on funds right now after going sailing. The Witch Doctor is moved to the discard, and replaced with a Lantern. A pretty handy item in a pinch.

    Encounters:

    @jdarksun A second attempt at the clue I assume. It's that Dark Pact you've been looking for!
    1is645nfv0yn.png

    @Phyphor to dig through a necromancer's notes
    r5rpus7m6rmm.png

    @Daemonis to check out a weird altar in the hills(?) of the Himalayas
    66oegvu3dse9.png
    As Trish knows no spells, this is a free-be. Gain the clue with no ill effects.

    @Auralynx hanging out in Sydney has a dream of basically just hanging out in Australia.

    Failures coming thick and fast today.

    @jdarksun signs a dark pact, and gains the clue and the legendary Necronomicon

    @Phyphor and @Auralynx are frightened by a ghost and Australia respectively.

    And then the Mythos phase.

    ub2rl6rd2jmq.png

    Clues spawn in the Arctic and on the way to the Antarctic respectively (spaces 13 and 12).
    A bunch of star gazers move into Panama, find them with Observation and then spend 2 clues to sic the cops on them and kick them out.

    A pretty clean Mythos phase so far, although it has drawn it to my attention that the scripting might not have shuffled the Mythos decks after building them. I have recitifed that.

    Action time! Also I accidentally quit TTS halfway through doing this update, so there might be some mistakes. If you see anything, let me know please.

  • jdarksunjdarksun Struggler Registered User regular
    Wait, I've already got two clues. I'll go try and take care of Panama.

    Actions:
    1. Travel to San Francisco, spend boat ticket to travel to space 7/ Panama.
    2. Acquire Assets

    Geth, roll 3d6t5 for Influence test

    Influence test:

  • jdarksunjdarksun Struggler Registered User regular
    I was gonna grab the Lantern but with 3 I guess I could get the PI instead. Can you have more than one Ally?

  • jdarksunjdarksun Struggler Registered User regular
    Doesn't appear to be a limit, so I'll pick up the Private Investigator unless someone else wants them.

    Take him while you have the roll to take him, imo.

    Okay with jdark going to panama I can probably repeat my previous turn
    1. Rest
    2. Bless myself
    Geth roll 3d6t5

    3d6t5 1 [3d6t5=2, 4, 5]

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Probably discard that spell? What does everyone think

    Auralynx
  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    Good idea.

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular

    1. Move to Tokyo using ship ticket
    2. Aquire asset - Geth roll 4d6t5

    Gate encounter

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    Geth roll 4d6t5

    4d6t5 3 [4d6t5=6, 1, 6, 6]

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    Actually, what do I have available to pick?

  • ChrysisChrysis Registered User regular
    I'll update the market with jdarksuns purchase, but apart from the PI the second post is up to date.

    OK, jdarksun picks up the PI which is replaced by a .18 Derringer.

    @Phyphor rests, then blesses, which costs one sanity bringing him to 4/4. Discarding the spell takes him to 4/3 with the first token on the mystery.

    @Daemonis chooses between .18 Derringer, Lantern, Private Care, and Police Assistance

    @Auralynx travels to Shanghai, where it is then encounters time. I'll roll them up now, and Daemonis can choose the item and resolve the encounter in the same post. A little bit of extra info for the choice, but *shrug*.

    @jdarksun to dob some nerds in to the cops.
    enfm4i9y0r05.png

    @Phyphor to try not to break stuff in the museum.
    tu4nmm1ucspf.png

    @Daemonis to use art skills to enter a library. This is our first two part Encounter. If you pass the first part in the top third, you resolve the 2nd third. Otherwise the last third. I've annotated it this time.
    dohirjo9y7tq.png

    @Auralynx beats a cultist up with his friends, and steals his lunch money at the cost of one sanity. In this case the Conjuration spell.
    Then Leo dives through the gate to Lost Carcosa, where he practises his acting skills in a foreign language.
