    I am willing to blow clues on part 1 of this so I'll do both rerolls and the 2d6 to save a problem in one post and we'll see which apply.

    E: looks like we're done and the gate's closed after first reroll. Given the Conspiracy Theorist's slow drip of clues I'll pass on doing an encore.

    Geth, roll 1d6t5 for Tread The Boards
    Geth, roll 1d6t5 for First Reroll
    Geth, roll 1d6t5 for Second Reroll
    Geth, roll 2d6t5 for Bluff

    Tread The Boards:
    1d6t5 0 [1d6t5=1]
    First Reroll:
    1d6t5 1 [1d6t5=5]
    Second Reroll:

    Bluff:

    Conjuration seems like an excellent cast-and-forget candidate, to me.

    Alright, not bad.

    @jdarksun Tracks down the astronomers and sics the cops on them, solving Panama's troubles once and for all.
    @Phyphor doesn't break things and learns Clairvoyance, a nifty little spell.
    @Daemonis gets booted from the library for inadequate drawing skills.
    @Auralynx successfully bluffs his way through the performance, and then bails before anyone notices.

    The lantern is replaced by an Elder Sign in the reserve.

    Mythos time!

    Cultists start trying to summon more monsters!
    wnzg0ngay8nw.png

    Omen advances to blue, and because of the Tokyo gate doom advances by 1 to 12.
    There's a monster surge, dumping a Star Spawn and a Vampire in Tokyo.
    Clues spawn in Sydney and space 20.

    As all the cultists are already dead, they can't themselves summon more monsters.
    I've gotta run for a bit, updated board pics, etc when I get back.

    Fuck yeah. I'll spend 1 Sanity for 2 spells.

    ...I have no idea how we're staggering turns, and should have figured this out before hand. I'll wait for Phyphor to arrive before Action 2, which will be restoring Sanity.

    Each player takes both actions, then it's the next players turn. Technically you can't wait, but what you could have done (do, because time is flexible in a PbP) is pass off Lead Investigator to Phyphor (or someone else) at the end of the Mythos phase and change the turn order. Because you're co-operating usually it doesn't matter, but occasionally you get Mythos cards which target the Lead, or where the Lead has to make a choice. Would you like to do that @jdarksun ?

  • jdarksunjdarksun Struggler Registered User regular
    Yeah I didn't realize Phyphor needed Sanity too, I wanna wait to go until he can get here.

    So if we're talking turn order, do we get to change the whole thing? Because I'm pretty sure I should head to Tokyo, throw the Dynamite, then let Daemonis take my Hired Muscle and try to finish the Star Spawn off if possible.

    E: If you just move where the same rotation starts, I think I still need to go throw the dynamite unless we're giving up on clearing that gate. Not sure what Daemonis does in that case.

  • ChrysisChrysis Registered User regular
    You just move where in the rotation you start, which would still be jdarksun -> Phyphor -> Daemonis -> Auralynx -> jdarksun

    Basically the only way to get Phyphor before jdarksun is to have Phyphor start the turn order, I made a mistake earlier saying anyone would be OK.

  • ChrysisChrysis Registered User regular
    Alright, @jdarksun has nominated @Phyphor as the new lead, so the new order is Phyphor, Daemonis, Auralynx, jdarksun.

    1. Move to jdark's space
    2. Feed the mind

    Geth roll 3d6t4

    3d6t4 2 [3d6t4=3, 5, 5]

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    I'll improve lore further and use clairvoyance for my encounter

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    @Daemonis is next

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Since jdark is generating spells and it seems that any number of things can be traded at once? It makes the most sense to do a handoff next turn

    jdarksun
  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    1. Get boat ticket
    2. Acquire assets

    Geth roll 4d6t4

    4d6t4:
    4d6t4 1 [4d6t4=4, 2, 2, 2]

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    Get Deringer

    Combat encounter

  • AuralynxAuralynx Darkness is a perspective Watching the ego workRegistered User regular
    Guess we're doing this.
    1. Go to Tokyo.
    2. Use Dynamite, killing Vampire and injuring Star Spawn.
    3. Hopefully avoid a combat encounter.

  • ChrysisChrysis Registered User regular
    @Phyphor improves his book reading, at the cost of reducing his sanity dangerously low to 2.
    @Daemonis buys a boat ticket, but can't buy anything else because Trish isn't blessed and also there are monsters here. The target is 5, not 4 so you have no successes, and you can't go shopping (or rest) in a space with monsters. What would you like to do for your second action?
    @Auralynx blows the Vampire to bits, and wounds the Star Spawn greatly.
    @jdarksun reads the Necronomicon, and learns Flesh Ward again, and Blessing of Isis

    Before we move onto encounters I'll just get clarification on Daemonis' second action, and whether you did actually want to change Lead Investigator given nothing that has happened this turn would happen any differently without the change.

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    Oops, sorry. Gain a clue using my action then.

  • ChrysisChrysis Registered User regular
    Alright, 1 clue it is. Speaking of which @Phyphor could you do your lore test for clairvoyance and choose which clue to take if the encounter works out.

    I should end up with 3 sanity again right? -1 from spell, +1 from jdark's heal

    Geth roll 5d6t4

    Closer than it really should have been! Encounter the arctic clue

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Also should we discard that?

    It's super helpful for farming clues, and we have an infinite spell generator right now. I'd suggest keeping it.

  • AuralynxAuralynx Darkness is a perspective Watching the ego workRegistered User regular
    Someone should probably have told Peter Cushing about dynamite at some point.

    You're quite right. I misunderstood jdarksun's action as a regular rest and not the character action, which I'd forgotten about. I'll fix that up now, and get your encounters.

    @Phyphor meditates on the arctic, to no ill effect. His mind travels on a ship through a time portal, which is insightful but otherwise a little scary. (Not as scary as a Hound of Tindalos however)
    ik4026veumt6.png6m7d5h9zvd9h.png
    Norman is back down to 2 sanity, looks like I was using clairvoyance earlier.

    @Daemonis does battle with a Star Spawn. It's already got 3 wounds, so two successes on the strength test will kill it. After that you can either go through the gate or just hang out in Tokyo, assuming you do kill it.

    @Auralynx nothing yet, we need to wait and see if you need to fight the Star Spawn as well.

    @jdarksun goes out drinking.

    Got it! Tokyo encounter, please.

  • ChrysisChrysis Registered User regular
    @Daemonis takes 3 sanity damage and 1 physical, taking Trish to 3HP/2WP before immediately being placed on trial for a breach of the peace.

    @Auralynx is in luck, no combat encounter. Tokyo, generic city, or Otherworld encounter?
