The Investigators, Zoey Samaras, Marie Lambeau, Jim Culver, and Lola Hayes, were equipped well; had a great Stamina and Sanity balance; and reasonable Personal Stories. Then, it happened ~ I flipped over the GOO for the evening…Quachil Uttaus. This guy is truly horrific.
Off they went ~ the first gate opened at the Esoteric Order Of Dagon and the next at Whatley Farm. Great, at least we have some action on the other boards. Well, apparently it proved to be a little too much action. Zoey grabbed-up a Clue token and raced north to Innsmouth. The others attempted to grab Clue tokens and head off to enter Gates. Unfortunately, a few monsters stopped their progress and all the while, Gates are appearing every single round…Gardeners Place, Wizard's Hill, Marsh Refinery, and the Historical Society. Finally, to add insult to injury, I drew a Reckoning Card, entitled The Barriers Crumble which opens a gate and a monster appears in each unstable location containing an investigator with 1 or more Dark Pacts…and yes, Zoey had a Blood Pact and was searching around the Unvisited Isle and Jim, with his Soul Pact was at Cold Spring Glen. Wihle I always play with the Lurker, I rarely invoke his name and take him up on his offer. Given the GOO, I thought it best to receive some aid…oh how it burns.
Forget the Final Battle…the Investigators simply blew away…Dust in the Wind.
