Headline:  "Strange Sightings!  An Ancient One Fights Back!"
Ancient One

InvestigatorsLily Chen, the Martial Artist - Susan

Patrice Hathaway, the Violinist - Rachelle
Usrula Downs, the Explorer - Rob

William Yorrick, the Gravedigger - Justin ("I knew him well!")Mandy Thompson, the Researcher - Robbi

End of Game

We fought and defeated Rhan-Tegoth.  It was a relatively short game, with doom tokens adding on quickly. The "Sealing the Beast's Power" Mission made the end battle much easier!

House Rules/Game Setup
Robbi chose Rhan-Tegoth out of 6 or so AOs that we don't normally play (based on frequency of certain labels).  She said he looks like he's not too bad when he's slumbering.

Expansions in play
Curse of the Dark Pharaoh
Dunwich Horror
The King in Yellow (we use the new cards from this, but we never have actually had the 'play' enter play)
Kingsport Horror (we left out Heralds and Guardians)
The Black Goat of the Woods
Innsmouth Horror


*  many "Strange Sightings"!  drawn 2x in 3 turns.
Usrula Downs, the Explorer - RobWilliam Yorrick, the Gravedigger - Justin ("I knew him well!")
Mandy Thompson, the Researcher - Robbi
we fought 'em.  we beat 'em.  "end of story." - Rachelle
Miskatonic Horror
*  rumor drawn and discarded on first turn!  no mistrust!
*  no gate opened on the actual first Mythos card in play.  this actually happened a few times during the game - no gate opening.
*  William and Lily both lost a turn on the first turn - Justin cuz he had to go to City of Great Race and have an encounter, and Susan cuz she chose to select a reward.
*  Gladiuos of Carcosa x 3!!!!
*  AO actually "fought back" with his attack against the best stamina and then turning it into a bounce-back type action.
*  luckily, Justin's character drew a mission that made the AO's combat rating lowered by 2: "Sealing the Beast's Power"
