Thoughts on Nyarlathotep

30 posts in this topic

At the moment there are still enough "classic" AOs missing to fill at least two big and two small expansions. Not only Nyarlathotep is still missing but Tsathoggua, Rhan Tegoth (so far only as epic monster in the game) and my personal favorite Ghatanothoa (again so far only an epic monster token in a rumor). Other, more exotic and less known AOs include Quachil Uttaus, Bokrug and Chaugar Faugn which are all in Arkham Horror. Concerning the fact that EH is far more successful than AH, I expect at least as much as they released for the predecessor and AH had 4 big and 4 small ones so there should follow at least one more for EH because one large is still missing. Of course I hope for even more expansions. Personally I hope for a New England Expansion (with Nyarlathotep and Tsathoggua) and a Pacific one with Australia and Polynesia (with Ghatanothoa and the Great Race of Yith). Of course the New England Expansion also makes sense with Ghatanothoa as he is a part of the tale "Out of the Eons" which takes also place in New England as in Polynesia. But I WANT GHATANOTHOA AS AN AO!:rolleyes:

More successful in which way? Sales?

As for Nyarlathotep, he would have fitted in the Under the Pyramids expansion perfectly, but did not happen. On the other hand his vampire-like appearance from The Haunter of the Dark would be fun as well to encounter in a future expansion.

The Haunter in the Dark would fit perfectly into the New England expansion, Providence would be also a great city location together with Boston, Innsmouth and Arkham (perhaps also New York City because of stories like "The Horror at Red Hook"), wilderness locations would be the Blasted Heath and Dunwich, perhaps also the Green Mountains and there are several possible sea locations (Devils reef etc.).

The importance of New England in the Cthulhu myth is so extraordinary high that I consider the New England expansion a must-do.

The Haunter is already a Nephren-Ka mystery, though.

Maybe Nyarly also uses a selection of existing mysteries from other AOs?
