    spoonman2084 got a reaction from Julia in how many investagor are in elder sign   
    i am clinging to their choice of the word "preview" and not "promo" for Daniela. I hope we see her in a future release for the game...a guy can hope

    When you see the action symbol on a button you can click on screen it means you will need to use one of your actions to perform it
    If you want to search every search token and speak to every NPC and ask them all of the questions you can you will lose the game. The investigators are on a clock and will just not have the time to search everything and talk to everyone. You also might not have the time to defeat all monsters that spawn too. 
    You will begin to learn you are taking too long once the mythos phase stops pulling punches and will just start to hammer you with lots of sanity loss etc, sometimes you will not even be able to prevent it. Sometimes the mythos will be nice and tell you in a message that you running out of time and need to hurry up.

    Preston Fairmont is in the omens of the pharaoh expansion. We are only missing Daniela Reyes. I really hope we get her soon. Daniela was given away at arkham nights and she was a "preview" not a promo so i hold out hope.
     I would even bee cool with a final expansion like miskatonic horror did for AH2 or masks of nyarlathotep for EH. Give us our last investigator and some other cool content i am sure FFG can cook up. 
    Maybe they would give us personal stories for the gators, maybe some sort of campaign play system.

    Makes sense to me, I was just looking at numbers and not card backs etc. If we have 12 cards that is like rolling 2 d6. Using mini cards to create multipurpose dice in a way. Now I am picturing something like AH LCG mythos tokens meets your player deck. 
    in gloomhaven you have deck for checking skills as well and it is not very big 20ish cards and you can remove negative ones as you progress and upgrade existing ones etc. You still end up with a smallish deck for checks. I think i like that style better than dice...but i am a sucker for custom dice like the ones in MoM2E
    You see the leaf of lorien marker on these cards. I am guessing you can spend them as a resource to add the card into play in front of you. so if you know you are going to need a certain result you can plan ahead and have one in the bank so to speak
    i am excited to see where they take this

    i would not worry about “what if the app stops being supported” computers are not a fad, this will continue to work in the future even FFG abandons all of the games they make that use apps. The internet is great for that. We can still play old dos games and they are not designed to run on windows 10 for example. 
    I am always more concerned of how annoying it would be if I lost a game component after it is out of print.

    If you have to take a 3 sanity hit with no way to prevent it...you took too long and the game is just putting you out of your misery. I have never had something like that early or even mid part of the game. It is an Arkham game but one without a “doom track” you can see..but you know the app is keeping track. I have lost some games with “the investigation has gone on too long” and it is a loss with no insanity traitor happening. It is frustrating sometimes when you are so close but i still find it a blast to play even if that happens. 
    Playing it safe and killing all the monsters and taking turns to heal and searcb everything available is cool and you can be doing well that way too...till the Mythos event domes you for your last sanity. You can’t force the app to play in the fashion you want you have to play the way it wants. You can’t beat the Mythos and you need to take some risks in the game albeit calculated risks.

    spoonman2084 got a reaction from donkler in Potential Campaign Mode for non-Saga scenarios?   
    I think something akin to the “return to” boxes like in Arkham Horror would be cool. It was mentioned in the other thread and I thought it was a great idea. You could introduce boons and burdens and new cards or decks to help tell the story or a reimaging of the story from the cycle. I even like the idea of the box to hold the cycle that they did  for AH
    it might be a good idea to not even follow the story of the cycle. FFG would have an entire cycle of encounter cards at thier disposal plus they can add more to fill in the gaps as needed. You would not even need to make it 9 scenarios long, I would be fine if we ended up with a highly tuned and replay-able 6 scenario campaign.

    Awesome, I was a little surprised she was not in the last xpac to be honest. Maybe we will get her and a few more in the future. For now I will just be jelly I can’t attend arkham nights. If anyone is going and does not play elder sign I would be happy to take that card off their hands

    Shaman is kinda cliche in my opinion. I think a "village elder" would be cool and they could be more of a lore investigator since many native cultures pass down lore/knowledge orally. Who would have more lore knowledge than someone who has been around a long time to accumulate it.
    I would love a Native investigator, not enough representation.

    i agree on the will power as well. We have not had a gator with 2 fives that i am aware of. Points seem to total up to 21 so maybe.
    3 strength
    5 agility
    3 observation
    3 lore
    2 influence
    5 will
    maybe power could be something around a skill check for agility, like you can convert an investigation to a success. Or maybe you get some kinda bonus for evade checks.

    Don't forget the 4th expansion you can buy Grave Consequences. I own them all and keep coming back to Core + Unseen forces + Grave consequences as my go to Elder Sign setup.
     
    Grave Consequences just adds the constant threat of you gaining a nasty phobia. I play GC the way i read the designer likes it where you gain a phobia the first time you drop to 2 sanity remaining then 0 for each phobia after that.
     
    GC also makes battling the GOO's interesting compared to the standard method in my opinion.
