This game has endless possibilities. 90% of the time I play is done with good friends who know the game and even if we lose the final battle, the last player to get killed or the players who defeat the Ancient One, will have to come up with a cool ending. I decided to post an example of the many awesome endings we had:
In this session we battled against Nyarlathotep. The investigator who survived the final battle was Monterey Jack (the Archaeologist). Somewhere during gameplay I obtained the ally Ruby Standish and the card I drew for having Ruby join me was none other than the Necronomicon. (I won't tell you the story and dialogue of when I got her, i'll just skip to the ending)
At the end of the game when the investigators (meaning only me, since all my friends died in the final battle) won the game, I had to come up with an ending.
The police arived and found Jack with a gun in his hand and no one around him. Jack was arrested (Ruby was nowhere to be seen). As when he was standing in the back seat of the police vehicle he passed a dark alley and noticed Ruby standing there close to the wall.
"Will he be a problem?" a robbed figure from within the darkness asks Ruby. "No, the police won't belive him, I left too mutch incriminating evidence at the Silver Twilight Loudge when I stole the item, and also gave him the fake copy I recieved from you." Ruby hands over the Necronomicon to the robbed figure. "I could really get used to this." sayis Ruby as she enters the darkness with the robbed figure. The End.
I know, not one of my best endings but it's the most recent one. So...does anyone else have any cool ending to tell?
