The Lurker at the Threshold (ooc)

Yig's followers plot to summon him, and only nun Sister Mary, psychologist Carolyn Fern, and photographer Darrell Simmons can stop him. The Lurker at the Threshold offers a shortcut to power, but the price may be too high. Will they succeed, or will the great serpent return to rule the world?

Sounds good to me, or maybe even more than three. I'd like to try Arkham+Innsmouth after this game is over.


Let's see how enjoyable the game is with us three.

So, we'll stick to the components from the two sets? However, I thought to leave out the Heralds: Mother Hydra and Father Dagon. Also, I'll randomly pick our investigators.

Sounds good to me. I wouldn't mind playing with one of the Heralds for the extra challenge, but I wouldn't want to play with both of them.

Carolyn doesn't have an encounter in the street, so you can go ahead and finish up the turn.

CRAP IN A HANDBAG!

Hey Tabs,

Let me know when this game is finished so I can join the next one. That's what happen when I take a 2 month unscheduled holiday from games eh? You miss the freaking boat.

We're almost done this one. We're in the final battle with Yig, and he's 3/4 dead. I think we'll wrap it up by Monday at the latest.

This current game has been so much fun that although I said 3 players is enough (Tabs, Mr. Handy & Misfit), you're welcome to play, DSIGFUSS--actually I miss your interesting posts!

Like Mr. Handy said, we should be finished on Monday.

Woohoo! We did it!

Our final score is: 10 (Yig) - 1 (Terror Level) + 3 (unspent Gate trophies) + 1 (unspent Monster trophies) + 2 (sane, surviving Investigators) = 15 points.

Good Going guys. After the game is said and done, was Yig easy? Sounds like you destroyed the crap out of him. What was the score in the last game were I played Jenny.

Where can I find a list of Innsmouth characters so I can pick one and work out my evil sub plot :evil: .

Actually, Tabs will pick random characters for each of us out of the 32 characters in the base game and the Innsmouth expansion. We'll also have the Personal Story cards.

Yig was easy (he often is), but we were very lucky. I failed to get a Blessing before the battle due to a stroke of bad luck, but I managed to get my Curse lifted at the start of the second round and Darrell got a lot of 6s. That and the Tommy Gun I started with were the key to winning.

The OOC thread for the Dunwich game we had got deleted, and that contained the final score, so I'm not sure what it was. You can use the various info threads in that game and the rules to figure out what it should be, but otherwise it's gone (unless the IC thread mentions it).

That's a good score!

Who knows when another threat will arise?"


Well, next weekend actually ;) .


Mr. Handy, Misfit & DSIGFUSS, this week I'll randomly draw our investigators, prepare the decks, etc. As Mr. Handy said, we'll play with the components from the two boxes, Arkham + Innsmouth. Since there is now four of us we'll play with a Herald as well.

Mr. Handy, can you set up a Child Board for the Lurker?

It's all set up. You can now move the old threads to the Episode 3 subforum and then create new threads here.

You might want to check with Misfit that he's still in. He hasn't been posting very regularly,

Well if you need a fouth I think I know someone who was dying to play the first time we did this.

Nice with the Herald... I am looking forward to see how that dynamic works. Which Herald are we using? Or is it dependent on which cosmic dood we're fighting? I own Innsmouth but have never played it. I got it for Christmas and barely cracked the box.

Innsmouth is all kinds of awesome! 8-) There are two Heralds to choose from that come with Innsmouth: Father Dagon and Mother Hydra. Both of them make things tougher. It's even possible to play with both of them at once, but we're not that crazy. I always choose one of them at random when I play. The choice of Herald is independent of the Ancient One, though they often help specific Ancient Ones more than others. Both Dagon and Hydra beef up Cthulhu even more than the others.
