What occurs when Spawn Monster enters into the Vortex?

Shinner,

 

     I've never had this happen before (and that's over 100 games!), but I would posit that the effects of the Vortex takes place ~ i.e. in Dunwich, add a marker for the Dunwich Horror (unless it's already out, as it doesn't matter what enters the Vortex); in Innsmouth, add a Deep One Token to the Deep One Track.  As to the Spawn Monster...return it to the GOO's sheet or wherever it normally resides.

 

Cheers,

Joe

There are some possibilities for a Spawn to enter a vortex (Servants of Glaaki, Child of Abhoth, and also the Dunwich Horror if the Dark Druid is in play and his special ability is triggered twice). Since Spawn can be killed, a Spawn entering a vortex triggers all the specifics related to that vortex (as Joe said) and then it's returned to the AO sheet (Servants and Children of Abhoth) or to the game board (the Dunwich Horror reforms immediately at Sentinel Hill since the DH track is still full)

Hello, Julia!  Thanks for assisting with this one ~ I've honestly destroyed more Spawn Monsters than I care to recall...nasty little buggers...

Destroying Spawn is much better than feeding them to vortices, so I can't, but approve :)

Rule "For each monster returned to the cup in this fashion, raise the terror level by one".
Spawn come back not to a cup of Monsters. There are links to official сlarifications?

 

Spawns that don't come back to a cup getting to the Vortex, so and its effects shouldn't work.

Shinner,

 

     I'm a rules-lawyer for many years and I like the way you think...for instance, at Y'anthlei in Innsmouth it states you may only "enter" it from Devil's Reef...it says nothing about 'leaving' it, so Silas (and I assume, others) are free to depart the location, but only 'enter' it from Devil's Reef.  The same kind of thinking can be applied here.  If a Spawn Monster enters the Vortex, it departs the board, but does NOT trigger the Vortex Effects.  Some will agree, others will call it quibbling, and others still will have their blood-pressure raised by your interpretation.  For what it's worth, I like it!

 

Cheers,

Joe

Ок. Thanks!

 

And one more small question not on a subject... But there is no wish to create a new subject for it.

Removed Clues from Closed ("Close" counter) Locations? It happens important when the Location Is closed on 1 round.

Closed locations have investigators and monsters move to the street. Nothing has ever been said of removing clues, so I'd say they stay where they are (you can still pick'em up with special means, like Student Newspaper)

 

As for your other point, I agree that Spawn are not returned to the cup like other monsters; nonetheless, I'll trigger the +1 terror because the vortex ate something. No official clarifications on this point so far, though.

Shinner,

 

     You have to understand, Julia is a mad-woman (I mean that in the sweetest and most complimentary way possible :P) and she will do everything to make the game harder.  If she could lie on a bed of nails and still see the board, she'd try it. 

 

Cheers,

Joe
