  1. Forgive me if it's been posted in other areas (I know it's buried in a few threads on this forum) - but any news on AN2017? It seems past the due date for an announcement. With the focus on MoM2e and AH LCG, feels like they'd be the focal points for AN this year if it's coming...and here I am again wondering if we're wrapping up EH too:) Lots of Star Wars, GoT and the yucky-looking RPG system based on FFG's dice (just get GURPS, really!).
  2. An apt question for the American population these days:)
  3. Echoing the call for AO packs. Maybe a Lovecraft Country big board expansion is in the offing, maybe not (with the text on a lot of the existing cards I doubt it, but would like to be surprised). And yeah, when is Arkham Nights generally announced? Would think it's in the next few weeks to allow people to buy passage there. With MoM2 and AH LCG going strong, I'd think it's a possibility?
  4. I just have a feeling Eldritch is going to start wrapping up soon. the AH LCG is doing great and so much cheaper to make (plus it just started). I played through the Dunwich Legacy and loved it, but the replayability isn't that great IMO. I'm giving the game away to a friend of mine. Add to that that Mansions of Madness is still going strong, and I wonder if FFG is doing the old AH boardgame thing of not oversaturating the market - just leaving it as MoM2nd ed. and AH LCG.
  5. Yes the RotET is actually a pretty easy AO. A bit disappointing in my view as Mountains of Madness is my favourite Lovecraft least the theme is pretty cool, but it was a bit anticlimactic!
  6. hey there, I think I'm playing this correctly but just in case - I've only been playing Roland so far, but put him through the Core campaign and just finished the Dunwich Legacy. He's at 3 physical trauma and 4 mental trauma now, meaning he's pretty close to retirement:) - tempted to try for the Carnivale one-shot with him starting at 1 SAN, but we'll see... anyway, I've been starting with Roland's character gun shuffled into his draw deck, not starting with it already in play. Sometimes I get it, sometimes I don't, although it's more often I do than not. I think that's right, but know that Pete starts with Duke in play (I think it says so on the card), so just wanted to make sure.
  7. Great, thanks gang - appreciate the clarification.
  8. Hey all, quick question about card icons that is probably obvious to some. I'm pretty clear on the one-shot skill cards like "Guts", with 2 Willpower icons on it. You discard that card, it gives you +2 Willpower for your next Willpower skill check, and if successful you draw another card. But what about cards like the Dr. Henry Armitage Ally card, with 2 Wildcard icons on it? Do those icons refer to +2 on any roll you make, or do they refer to the special abilities on the card itself? The first Beat Cop card has a Fight icon on it, and the text says it gives you Fight +1, so that seems pretty obvious. Not sure about the Armitage and cards like him though. Finally, I'm assuming this isn't like Eldritch Horror but is like Arkham Horror, where you get to add all the "+" signs together - so if you had a .45, a Knife and a Beat Cop, you'd get base +3 to hit if you used all the actions? thanks
  9. do you folks think that would bleed over into Chaosium territory? I guess the Gumshoe gang also licence from Chaosium, but I'd find it weird if the CoC manufacturers gave FFG the rights to make a tabletop RPG that would compete with CoC. That being said I really don't like the dice in that system so don't see a future for it...
  10. hope you're right! you have some inside scoop?
  11. I can't help but feel that they're starting to wrap up the line....
  12. Just played Cities in Ruin for the first time last night, and that should make the game harder for you...
  13. Just obnoxiously going on record as saying that I called this ability from the booth:), with iGniGhted guessing the second half correctly. All the investigators look great, thanks for posting on wiki. Look forward to hearing about difficulty of the AO, picking up my copy today if i'm lucky.
  14. yeah weird to announce it so early then we wait a long time for delivery. wonder if they're winding down the line?
  15. Yeah. Maybe as a salesman he can trade assets between players wherever they are in the world, as his action.
