Today when I played a Final Battle against Rhan-Tegoth I discovered that if you have Leo in the team you can't lose.

Leo's ability to prevent one stamina loss makes your investigators to never lose that last stamina, which means you'll win as long as at least one investigator is able to hurt the AO.

Have someone else discovered this bug or am I the first one? ;)

Forget it, I found out about the "extra rules" covering this…

For any who do not yet know the answer: stamina loss from Rhan's attack cannot be reduced or prevented in any way.

Before Innsmouth was even released, fans noticed that Michael McGlen could loophole Rhan (who was the AO to be previewed at the time).

Rhanny seems to me to be like--one of those weird AOs (though, I know since this is Lovecraft weird is definitely relative). There seems to be a good many simple means of taking him down, especially if you have blessings and things that let you re-roll dice like clues and Amanda's ability.

I don't think you can use clues to re-roll his lifedraining attack. As I read it you can only use clues on skill checks, or am I wrong?

Nope, you're right. I think Dr.F refered to ways to have your attacks more effective; clues add dice to skill checks, allowing you extra dice to roll, not to reroll dice already rolled (so, technically, there is no max cap, hence the suggested KW clue-per-seal rule to apply during FB)

Lol, yeah, I meant Mandy. XD Sorry, my friends and I mostly remember her as the 'bent-over dame' because of how open her shirt is for a girl that is just doing simple research in the 1920s.

Though, if you got lucky and kept damage to a minimum, you could have the doctor patch folks up on his turn and hope for the best.

What's wrong with cleavage? And I would indeed say that the time setting is crucial. ;-]

::laughter:: there's nothing wrong with cleavage (especially that cleavage), I was just laughing because during the years, several similar comments were done by different forumites, that's it

The picture is cool :-)  and it's interesting to see how people are so desperate that they destroy a planet to see a piece of thighs more ::devil::

Damaging cleavage?

Yikes! That should get +1 combat.

:) I guess it's not the only thing that slipped through their fingers… but still. The FAQ wasn't an easy task to accomplish, so I guess it's normal if something was forgotten
