At first I want to apologize if I dont use the right names of any game elements sometimes. I'm from Germany and my game copy is also a german one, so I have to translate the names etc.
I did not find any topics through search for my question, but maybe I did not use the right keywords so please excuse, if it has been a topic before.
Saturday evening we played a very nice round with Innsmouth expansion and the 'Curse of the Dark Pharaoh'. We started with Roland Banks, the Fed, Agnes Baker and Finn Edwards, all characters we did not play before. So it happened, that Agnes was in another world and low on stamina. Through an encounter and a failed luck check - which was quite sad, because the mythos environment effect at this time did not allow the investigators to spend clues for additional dice rolls - she managed to get a curse. In the next round at the beginning of the upkeep phase her cursed blood began to boil and therefore she was reduced to 0 stamina and 'lost in time and space'.
The next round, her stamina was reduced to 0 again and she was - again - 'lost in time and space' and delayed. Because she did not manage to get rid of the curse through upkeep rolls, she was 'out of bussines' for several rounds.
The question is: did we play it correct the way we did? And if no one buys a blessing at the 'South Church', may the investigator be in an eternal loop of boiling death until he manages to roll a 1 in upkeep?
We allowed the player to choose to get devoured after some time so he could join the actual game again. Is there a possibility to be devoured voluntarily, if you wish, as we played it this time?
The game did not end very well with two gate burst that destroyed seals and three 'deep ones rising'-tokens in one round, which caused Ghatanotoah to awake. We were not really prepared for this to happen but we even managed to remove 12 doom tokens before the last of us was devoured.
But it was a very exciting game and lots of fun.
