|Arkham Horror | Published 12 February 2009|
There is a distinct chill in the air, and the town of Arkham sits quietly. For how long? The first scenario changes the rules, and may give a taste of the horror yet to come.
Dive into the first chapter in the newest session, Chapter 1 (pdf, 2.1mb).
In addition you will need some assisstance, Calvin Wright (png, 715 kb) right click and save as.
I think this scenario is a lot easier if there are fewer players.
I'm going to try it with 4. Seems like 8 gates is accomplishable... If we get lucky...
Interesting. Calvin can not be taken as an Ally for Joe Diamond,Vincent Lee, or Gloria Goldberg. Best Advantage seems to be taking him with Harvey Walters. Combining Harveys power with Calvins makes it so that Harvey effectively passes every Horror check in this scenario. Too bad Harvey is such a weak fighter. I think I will combine Calvin with Michael McGlenn. Just enough added protection so Michael can have fun with the machine gun and not worry about going to the asylum every other turn. Plus.. No penalty taken for elder seals.
Any chance of getting a nice high-resolution image of the back of an Ally card to go along with Calvinfor printing purposes?
At 8 players, you can remove a doom token with an Elder Sign. The seal won't stick but at least it gives you a means to close 12 gates before 12 doom tokens.
I think the whole closing 12 gates will be even tougher considering the AOO has only 12 doom token slots. Need to figure out a way to remove them to win the game that way I'd think. Good luck! :)
::laughter:: oh, so that's the ally! I went to the scenario to a link through the forum and didn't see him.
About time! I like how this is being setup, and the challenge this scenario presents. Our team is going to have to close 12 gatessounds like fun. And I really wish that the cultists weren't going to drive us insane! Reserve my room at the Asylum, please!
