I have been asked to start a new thread. So here it is.
After passing the first 4 scenarios unscathed, I finally stumbled and failed on my first try on the 5th scenario...but I did not give up and straight away I tried again and suceeded against The Darkness and his undead minions
I played both games with Sister Mary, Wendy, Jacqueline, Zoey and Norman.
The first try was a disaster. Wendy got devoured on the 5th turn due a duplicate madness card. On the same turn Zoey failed a speed check in Yuggoth (with 7 dice !!?) and also got devoured. That was a fatal blow. The game was not looking good, so I decided to end by forfeit and start again.
On the second try I was more lucky:
Starting equipment worth mentioning were a Mi-go brain case from Zoey, Press pass from Norman (from previous game) and Gate box from Jackie (also from previous games).
On the 1st turn investigators went for clues, except Jackie who stayed at the Curiosity shop and bought an Enchanted Blade, which by the way never used. Mythos card is a “next act begins”. No gate opens, clue for Norman and Jackie cancels the terror level with Director’s diary she had as initial equipment. Wraith moves to the sky. The 2nd turn starts with Jackie going to Unvisited Island to gather more clues. Mary gets the Silver twilight lodge membership and Norman and Zoey exchange items. Zoey gets an Alien device from Norman and he gets mi-go braincase from Zoey. Since Wendy has enough clues to seal a gate, she decides to go through the gate in the Black Cave. On the Mythos phase a gate opens on Unvisited Island guarded by a Mi-Go. Jackie gets pulled through it.
turn 3rd starts with Jackie discarding Dread Curse of Azatoth spell for 2 clues (thanks to Zoey’s visions card) that brings her to five clues. Norman swaps places with Migo and then goes to Another world together with Jackie. Mary gets delayed gathering more clues at the graveyard and Zoey gets cursed at the witch House.
Mythos opens a Gate at the Woods. The wraith swoops down on Sister Mary and 2 monsters are released on the East town streets.
On the 4th turn Wendy and Norman seal their gates at black cave and unvisited island respectively. Mary evades the wraith in the Graveyard and Jackie gets hysterical in another world.
Gate opens in the graveyard on top of Sister Mary who ends up delayed in the Abyss. Norman gets two extra clues (thanks to press pass) .
On 5th turn: Zoey discards her curse. Mary discards a 2-sanity cost spell in order to get 2 clue tokens via Zoey’s visions . Jacquie comes back to Arkham through a gate box and seals the gate at the Woods. Mythos shows a gate at the unvisited isle that is sealed, then no gate this turn, one deep one token added to Insmouth. 3 seals on the board only one gate open at the moment with Sister Mary exploring it. On 6th turn: I send Norman to the Science building where there is a clue token .He gets two (press pass) and now he can seal another gate. Zoey kills a dimensional shambler roaming the merchant district streets. Jacqueline meets with Norman at the Science Building and gets his Press pass and some money. I decided for now not to exchange gate trophies. Norman and Zoey have enough clues to seal another gate and a closing victory could be possible. We’ll see. Mythos shows a gate at the Woods that is sealed. Another deep one token added . On 7th turn Wendy gets her 3rd madness card and she will likely get another one next turn due to her Claustrophofia/Agoraphobia. Jackie decides it is time to go to Dunwich for clues. Mary seals the graveyard. Wendy gets a curse on an encounter in the Historical society while gathering more clues
Mythos opens a gate to Abyss at the Order of Dagon guarded by a Dark Young
On the 8th Turn: Wendy looses 1 sanity and ends up in the Asylum with another madness(4). Norman swaps places with Dark young and enters the Abyss. Mary visits the Inner Sanctum getting a Golden sword of Yha-talla and Zoey does some tourism in Arkham while Jackie explores the countryside in Dunwich. Mythos shows a gate at Independance square...mmm..I risk it...I cancel it with 2 clues from Jacqueline...and the next myhtos opens a gate at the black Cave that is sealed....Yes :-).. 3rd deep one token added. Finally on the 9th turn: Norman seals the gate at the Order achieving a victory by closing gates. Yeah! :-)
It was a strange game. I missed more action or maybe the variety of environments. It was always night. The “Day” never came. But I am glad I passed it….as It can really get out of control if you get a lot of monster surges. It was not my favorite scenario of the first segment, but not my least favorite either.
Finally now that I finish the first segment… I can get rid of Sister Mary J
