Yesterday we played a very strange game, using Innsmouth, Dunwich, Dark Pharaoh and the Lurker against Ctugha, the Pharaoh, the Lurker and Ghroth.
I had Leo Anderson with 5 clues after the second round and went straight into the Plateau of Leng where I had a nice meeting with Ithaqua, who was some somehow angry about me disturbing his slumber there. After he destroyed Leo's only weapon, an axe, I stood no change against him and Leo was devoured.
New character Harvey with amazing load out, Wither, Staff of the Pharaoh (?) an Elder Sign and another Spell which I cant remember right now. So I went straight into another open portal to R'lyeh. And guess who waited there for me? The mighty Cthulhu of course who, mainly because of bad rolls, devoured me again.
We hardly ever have these encounters with battles against Great Old Ones and now two in four turns. Have you had anything like this before?
And also a question to these encounters: If one uses epic battle variant, would you also use epic battle variant for these combats?
