    Dark Pact! Dark Pact!

    Daemonis signs on the dotted line, bringing Sanity to 1, and Auralynx manages to close the gate without getting lost.

    Mythos time!

    Omen advances to blue. No blue gates, so no further effect. The monster surge, however, finding no blue gates spawns one in San Francisco accompanied by a Skeleton.
    Clues spawn at spaces 5 and 6, between Arkham and San Fransisco.

    And then we do it again!

    Omen advances again to Green, advancing doom by 1 due to the new gate in San Fransisco. The Skeleton in San Fransisco is then joined by a Ghoul and a Warlock.
    Clues spawn in Tunguska and Panama (space 7).

    There are currently no Mythos cards in play, so doom advances by 1 again, bringing it to 3. Yog Sothoth will awaken shortly.

    So pretty eventful, and your timers have advanced significantly. I'm disappointed there were no Dark Pact! rolls though.

    I assume you mean 5, as 3 is the ocean west of BA. The northern of the two 2 clue cities in between, right?

    @Phyphor gets meditative, and unfortunately gets nowhere.

    @Daemonis trades rooms with the navigator, to no effect.
    iewblwkl0yhc.png

    @Auralynx attempts to discern the true meaning of "Green Eggs and Ham".

    @jdarksun reads about monsters that could be right behind him, but aren't.

    So only Auralynx actually has anything to do, and at one dice probably won't successfully read "Green Eggs and Ham". Good luck @Auralynx

    Whoops. Sorry, @Chrysis

    Geth, roll 1d6t5 for Try 1

    Geth, roll 1d6t5 for Try 2

    Geth, roll 1d6t5 for Try 3.

    Given we got blanked otherwise and the clock is ticking I'll spend my clues if needed.

    Try 1:
    1d6t5 0 [1d6t5=2]
    Try 2:
    1d6t5 1 [1d6t5=5]
    Try 3:
    1d6t5 0 [1d6t5=2]

    I will not eat green eggs and ham.
    I do not like it, Sam I Am.
    I yet must do this thing I hate.
    I invoke the Key and Gate.

    (Put the clue towards our objective)

    Alright, up to 2 clues on the mystery.

    Mythos time.
    5144akv7azzq.png

    Omen advances to blue, but no blue gates so there's no further effect.

    Reckoning triggers.
    Geth roll 1d6 for snake people.
    Geth roll 1d6 for curses.

    @Daemonis to roll for Dark Pact.
    @Auralynx to roll for Conspiracy Theorist.
    @jdarksun to roll for Blessed and Dark Pact.

    snake people:
    1d6 2 [1d6=2]
    curses:
    1d6 1 [1d6=1]

  • ChrysisChrysis Registered User regular
    Oh boy.

    @Phyphor to decide on Jim and Norman's fates. The Snake People drag @Daemonis to Buenos Aires, and the Warlock curses one of @Phyphor or @jdarksun. Note this is before the rolls for conditions, so if @jdarksun is chosen that will eliminate the blessing before it's rolled for.

    Probably better to eliminate my Blessing than to Curse Phyphor, so I'll do that.

    Geth, roll 1d6 for Dark Pact

    Dark Pact:
    1d6 5 [1d6=5]

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    That's what I was thinking as well. Drop the blessing

  • AuralynxAuralynx Darkness is a perspective Watching the ego workRegistered User regular
    Oh boy. All I have to do is read this tabloid; you guys get the eventful turn.

    Geth roll 1d6t4 for Illuminatus!

    Illuminatus!:
    1d6t4 1 [1d6t4=4]

    Geth roll 1d6 for Dark Pact

    Dark Pact:
    1d6 1 [1d6=1]

    Yesssssssssss. The debt is paid.

    So @Daemonis loses everything. Everything.

    A gate then opens in Buenos Aires, accompanied by a Maniac which seems appropriate given Trish's luck.

    A cultist and a Witch also go hang out in the Heart of Africa, because it's a happening place to be.

    Board updates!

    Good luck everyone, but especially @Daemonis . Four mythos cards remaining.

    1. Move to 7
    2. Rest

    Clue encounter

  • jdarksunjdarksun Struggler Registered User regular
    We've got exactly the wrong spread of gates. We'd need to close both the red and green ones if we wanted to guarantee no Doom. ...and nobody is close enough to Rome to close Red, but I can get there next turn.

    1. Prepare to travel (boat)
    2. Acquire Assets

    Geth, roll 3d6t5

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

  • jdarksunjdarksun Struggler Registered User regular
    ...Lucky Cigarette Case doesn't seem worth a Debt Condition. Guess I'll pick up the .38 unless somebody else has a better idea?

  • AuralynxAuralynx Darkness is a perspective Watching the ego workRegistered User regular
    I can head back towards Tunguska to try to get the investigation?

    I think right now we need to focus on clues and gates, but neither are close for you. Heading towards Tunguska might be good though. I'm not sure there's a "right" answer.

    Yeah, I'm way out of position, unfortunately. Everything seems to drop 3+ spaces from me at the moment.

    At least if I head for Tunguska I can leverage my wilderness die.
