Playing against Nyarlathotep tonight. A party of four, Leo, Wilson, Diana and Vincent. Unseen Forces in, Master Mythos out. First Mythos: Lost and Found & Chapel closed for the rest of the game. Ugh. Then a marvellous adventure card popping monsters at midnight. Needless to say, no one was able to score the three Terror results required to pass it. Next Mythos: Souvenir Shop closed for the rest of the game. A couple of rounds trying to deal with the nightmare, with Wraith locking dice and Wizard Whatley red-locking some more and the doom track stuck at four. Nonetheless, I managed to gather 9 Elder Signs, so that I thought it'd have been a cakewalk finishing the guy off. HA. Diana won a story card, the new one entering play stated "At Midnight: add three doom tokens to the doom track if there are monsters in play" and the lingering effect of the last Mythos drawn was add two doom tokens the next time the clock strikes midnight. Guess WHEN midnight was to strike? Immediately after Diana's turn. So, in an eyeblick, +5 doomers and Nyarly was up, asking for some food (read: intrepid humans). Went to final battle, and we managed to wipe only 5 doomers off his doom track. (I did the math, there was something like 1.25% chance of rolling so low tentacles. Lovely.
On the one hand, I'm happy the game had its revenge (it's the first time I lose out of 21 games); on the other hand, I'm a little upset for the INCREDIBLY bad luck :laughter: Anyway, I'll have my revenge. Now, time to play Doom
