It might! I need three of four successes to even get it over here; I don't think it's worth trying.

Damn it, forgot I had that influence bonus from Agent Callahan when I acquired assets last time.

Sticking with my plan to summon the brood. For my turn Iíll just try agency secrets, walking doom back if successful, and skip my second action.

If I survive and actually kill everything, I guess Iíll do the clue encounter.

2, 1, 4, 3, 6 => Pass
With Agent Callahan's help, Vincent contacts the FBI's Himalayan field agents. They really do have ears everywhere! Doom is back to 9, and the agents abscond with their secret materials without so much as acknowledging the giant spider menace.

Typical FBI!



I still need actions from Pete and Hank.

Can we still clear debts with Jenny's ability, or not?

No, but you can clear debts with an action and an Influence check, as usual.

Well, it was moot!

Acquire Assets (5,5) to take private care. (Probably would have been better to save that great roll for something that mattered more).

Then I guess I'll go to Antarctica to try to deal with that mess. Hard to see that one being convenient enough to help us with the rumor, anyway.

You'll choose in which order to encounter the two monsters. As a reminder:
  • The Ghast has Will (-1) 1, Strength (-1) 2, and 2 toughness.
  • The Deep One Hybrid has Will 1, Strength (-1) 1, and 2 toughness. Defeating it in a combat encounter will lose you 1 Sanity but win you a random Item Asset.

Probably doesn't make a huge difference either way, but it's up to you how to handle them.

You're last in player order, so we'll flip a new card for the reserve just before the Encounter Phase.

Should Hank maybe take a breather to restore some sanity before he tries to fight something?

Ah, Private Care is an instant. Nevermind!

I suppose I'll try the Deep One Hybrid first on the off chance the item is really nice.

Pete! Are you sticking around in Spiderville (population: spiders)?

If Vincent thinks he can handle all the monsters (he probably does) it might be worth going to get the clue out in the middle of the ocean, if you can get there?

We need to find some way to be prepared to close a gate with a clue in hand for this dang rumor, and Vincent is already positioned to get the Himalayas clue.

Or at least acquiring assets in Shanghai.

Bah, I don't think so, I forgot you used the sea ticket.

Maybe just go to whichever nearby city space seems most beneficial for the future?

Heads up: I won't be able to update for a couple days. Please continue to plan and strategize!
