    4th Cycle - The Circle Undone

    This is true; but keep in mind that the promo book was almost solely about the Dreamlands. This doesn't necessarily mean anything though. Carolyn is the first replacement investigator we'll be getting previously unreleased 'original' cards for, so they may be extremely different in theme (?). We do have alternates of a few already released investigators and they don't exactly follow theme all the time. Jenny Barnes had an interesting story about her sister and a 'Green Man' cult. She came out with Dunwich. Does her novel story relate to Dunwich? Not specifically. That being said if we're looking for reasons for investigators to be included in the cycle, without a Dreamlands connection, Carolyn really doesn't have any ties to the Silver Twilight Lodge.

    4th Cycle - The Circle Undone

    With enemies that can only be damaged by relics and spells being noted in one of the previews, I wonder if we're not going to get 'traditionally' fighty investigators this go-around. Anyone can snag a relic weapon in the form of an Ornate Bow or Timeworn Brand, but who's to say.

    Return to the Dunwich Legacy

    Oddly enough, Naomi has never NOT had my back. With the new art, now I have a better understanding of just how serious she is. Yikes.

    Forgotten age difficulty...(sigh)

    Finished the cycle and believe it or not I did not die! And the resolution was so fitting! Survivor has stayed true to its faction name. I started the scenario with a single health (because of traumas), and made it to the end. Thank goodness we were on easy!

    I'm so happy to hear someone say that. It is definitely NOT mine, but there's a ton about it that I appreciate. I'm excited to see how it plays out, but I'm probably dead meat.

    Removing damage or horror from items

    I would say no. But only because there is no rule that says they should. They are separate components from the investigator, so I would think they would not.

    Unreleased investigators

    Good catch! I would say cards that 'cancel' or 'ignore' game effects, or a trait that has a lot of these included. But reviewing the word 'cancel' the best trait would be spirit which only has 2 out of class options (I've had worse, and Test of Will) and Against all Odds if 'ignore' works for her ability. I'm not 100% sure what counts for Diana's ability and what doesn't.

    Removing damage or horror from items

    Not that I can think of? But I haven't seen all of the cards yet. Usually it's not a big deal if you remove them from the item or from the investigator though as you still have the same total unless you lose the asset somehow.

    I feel similarly about Joe Diamond and Roland Banks as you do about McGlen and Skids. They are kind of samey. I could see McGlen having a simple "Your Assets with "uses (ammo)" enter play with 1 additional use on them. Kinda like the Akachi of Firearms.

    Those look pretty good. I would peg Wilson for a rogue or survivor, and Patrice for a seeker though. Agatha is probably also going to be some kind of seeker/mystic hybrid (as a parapsychologist, the 'educational' seeker cards and science cards make a lot of sense for her too).

    4th Cycle - The Circle Undone

    I'm curious about your take on this. He seems, to me, like a hands-off kind of guy, or at least that's what I imagine. Wealthy playboys rarely have to get their hands dirty and while getting to have fun with the byproducts of illicit activities, I don't see him being a real rogue at heart. Is it just because of the wealth = resources = rogue? I still don't see him as a good candidate thematically for cards like Streetwise, pickpocketing, burglary, etc. Some rogue cards make sense, while others seem odd to me. His backstory does mention that he wasted much of his fortune on gambling and women, but just going to a casino does not make one streetwise. What if he was a seeker with access to cards that gain resources? (Not that they need that with Milan Christopher, lol) He may very well be a rogue, but then either Danielle would have to be a seeker (unlikely) or we'll be getting a different seeker... Can't wait to find out.

    I'm not sure there won't be a Dreamlands through-line in this cycle. I really hope it DOES get its own cycle, but the witch house and the tarot cards to make me wonder.

    ^ I agree with much of this.... I'm thinking... Guardian: Joe Diamond... or I suppose Tommy? Mostly because of handcuffs, which seemed like a fishy card for Forgotten Age. Or dare we get Carolyn's non-replacement? Rogue: Danielle (her story in the 3d rulebook mentions The Circle) Survivor: Rita (yay!) Seeker: Preston Fairmont (I can see him allying w/ Charles Ross Esq... to be honest, Preston seems like a more naive and younger Charlie in a lot of ways. He seems well-educated despite the playboy archetype, but naive about the mythos and seeking answers about his families wealth. I'm hoping for a seeker with decent-to-good combat and lower will, just for variety.) Mystic: Diana Netural: Charlie (the political ties to the lodge and Arkham are just too strong)

    Exactly.. we were kind of like... welllllll... we can eat, or we can have a rope just in case. ? Also that poison is so nasty that we tried to stock up on antidotes, but there's really not many points at which you are able to administer them. I regret my pickaxe. I thought, well caves, so obviously... Torch + pickaxe. Shoulda went Torch + Rope.

    We had no rope, Calvin was a yithian, and Finn got locked down by a will test that prevented him from moving.
