  1. Apparently they're pests who destroy people's plants. Not that that's justification, IMO, but it is more than likely the reason.
  2. —Clark Ashton Smith, The Seven Geases Abhoth ("The Source of Uncleanliness") resides in the cavern of Y'quaa beneath Mount Voormithadreth. It is a horrid, dark gray protean mass and is said to be the ultimate source of all miscreation and abomination. Obscene monsters constantly form in Abhoth's gray mass and crawl away from their parent. No two of Abhoth's children are alike. In general, they are complex life forms, but the majority of them are simple-minded, acting on impulse. Their forms can be anything from amorphous blobs and singular body parts, to [strange] humanoids and monstrous mutants. Abhoth's tentacles and limbs grab many of them, pulling them back and devouring them. Most of those that escape simply wander off, only a few of them tend to their sire's needs. Abhoth has a twisted and cynical mind, and can communicate telepathically with others near him. Abhoth is also mentioned in Colin Wilson's The Mind Parasites. From Wikipedia's page on Clark Ashton Smith's deities.
  3. Good catch on the health/sanity tokens! I was really lost as to what those could have been. I just looked back at the announcement image of Mountains of Madness, and it only shows one GOO and three investigators, so it's not out of the question that we'll get 2:8. However, investigators were included in Strange Remnants, which means that putting only 4 in here makes the same number of investigators total between the small box-big box pair as the last pair, so I wouldn't be surprised if there were only 4. I certainly hope not, though.
  4. Agreed - I would certainly hope that two GOOs are in this box, and if so, I would like to think that Nyarlathotep is a shoe-in.
  5. This is the image from the BoardGameGeek twitter, and it has less glare. You can't see it too clearly, but the name is clearly short and looks like it starts with a 'A'. The upward extenders on letters near the beginning and end are consistent with Abhoth, and the picture looks reasonable, given the art from Arkham Horror.
  6. The big question is how many setback dice to add when attempting to use Move to Force-throw a dwarf.
  7. While I too would have presumed Nyarlathotep, from the image, it looks like Abhoth is the GOO we'll be facing off against. Whether or not Nyarlathotep will also be included remains to be seen.
  8. Yes, I'm relieved to say I can skip these books. The author can't even decide if the name of the person Wedge is impersonating is Hessan or Hassan (it flips back and forth several times). And this character is supposed to have helped Lando build Cloud City? I could've swore that "Lando must've conned somebody out of it"... Well, Lando did build it, from a certain point of view. From which point of view, exactly? Build could be metaphoric, like improving the economic and industrial structures and increasing business. Exactly. Wasn't the previous Baron Administrator kind of running the place into the metaphorical ground?

  10. Cue the announcement for the Technician book.
