Welcome to the Elder Sign campaign challenges 2019.

It is this time of the year... it is time to kill all those bastards Ancient Ones and seal all the gates from other worlds to keep our universe safe.
I'm challenging you, and myself, to walkthrough a campaign fighting the Ancient Ones in Elder Sign.

In fact, I have three different campaigns to offer you this time:
1 Elder Gods Campaign
2 Omens of the World Campaign
3 Ancients at Extreme Campaign

Previous Challenges:
Elder Sign: Campaign Challenge 2017 #1
Elder Sign: Campaign Challenge 2017 #2
Elder Sign: Campaign Challenges 2018

Challenge Starts: 01-Jan-2019
Challenge End: 31-Dec-2019 EOD

If you accept the challenge create an entry in the geek list, indicating what campaign are accepting with the setup you are going to use:
• which Ancient Ones are included and their order
• which investigators are included
• which expansions, if any, are included
• and so on...
See the first two entries I have created for more details.
You are allowed to do more than one campaign or even do the same campaign more than once but with different setups. If that the case create an entry per campaign, with all the details of each one.
Post your results either in the entry itself or as a comment of the entry. If you regularly post in SGOYT, feel free to put the link to your SGOYT entry here instead of duplicate the content.


Elder Gods Campaign

Aim
The aim of this campaign is help you to know better the overall scenario you selected to run the campaign.

Details
The goal is to defeat 8 Ancient Ones before 16 investigators are devoured.
The campaign consists in individual game sessions when 2 investigators fight against 1 Ancient One following all the rules of Elder Sign game.
There is no limit to the number of game sessions you could play.
You can use either the base game alone or add one or more expansions to it, but you should setup the campaign with 16 investigators and 8 Ancient Ones.
If you add one or more expansions you should keep using them all campaign long.

Setup the campaign
• Select 16 investigators from the base game and/or any expansions you are using. You can write them down or create a deck with them. For simplicity the rest of the instructions will call it investigators deck.
• Select 8 Ancient Ones from the base game and/or any expansions you are using, and order them as you like. You can write them down or create a deck with them but never shuffle this deck through the campaign. For simplicity the rest of the instructions will call it Ancient One deck.
• Shuffle the Adventure Card deck. This deck will be shuffled only when is completely depleted. The idea is to cycle all through the deck before reshuffle it. If you are playing with one of the expansions that has more than one Adventure deck, manage each deck separately.
• Shuffle the Mythos deck. This deck will be shuffled only when is completely depleted. The idea is to cycle all through the deck before reshuffle it. If you are playing with one of the expansions that has more than one Mythos deck, manage each deck separately.
• If you are using expansions and you feel there are other decks that could be cycled all through as the Mythos deck and Adventure Card deck, just do it. (ie. Events Deck in Gates of Arkham expansion. ie. The monster tokens)

Setup game
• Pick 2 fresh investigators from the investigators deck and the first Ancient One from the Ancient One deck. See below for more detail about fresh/exhausted investigators.
• Proceed with the setup of the game as indicated in the regular game (and/or as indicated in the expansions you are using)
• Shuffle all the decks unless the Adventure Card deck, Mythos deck, Ancient One deck and other deck you decided to cycle through.

Game
• Play the game as usual, all the rules from the base game and expansions are in place with the exception of:
•• In the base game, you can't buy an elder sign in the entrance of the museum.
•• There are not allowed replacements when investigators are devoured. If an investigator is devoured, the remaining investigator continues with the game. If the second investigator is devoured, you lost the game. The devoured investigators go to the box. If there is no remaining investigators in the investigators deck, you lost the campaign.
• If you use a trophy card, put it aside from the Adventure Card deck.
• After you replace a Mythos card for a new one, put the old one aside from the Mythos deck.
• If the Adventure Card deck ran out of cards, take all the cards put aside in this game and previous games, shuffle them, create a new deck and continue with the game. Do not use the investigator's trophies and the 6+ Adventure cards laid down in the table to build the new deck.
• If the Mythos deck ran out of cards, take all the cards put aside in this game and previous games, shuffle them, create a new deck and continue with the game.

Fresh Investigators
An investigator cannot participate in more than 2 consecutive game sessions. After the second game session the investigator gets exhausted and need to rest at least 1 game session to get fresh again.
If an investigator gets exhausted you must replace her/him with a fresh investigator with the following exception:
• At the start of the game if you only have exhausted investigators, you can use them, but they start with 1 less stamina and 1 less sanity. They could regain full stamina and full sanity through the course of the game.

After the game
If you lost the campaign:
We are doomed, they had reduced the humanity to cinders.

If you lost the game but not the campaign:
Don't worry, you still have time and resources. You can handle it next game!
• Keep the Ancient One at the top of the deck, it will be the beast to defeat next game.
• Take the investigator's trophies and the 6+ adventure cards laid down in the table and put them aside from the Adventure Card deck.
• Take the current Mythos card and put it aside the Mythos deck.

If you win the game and defeated the 8th Ancient one:
Congratulations, you had defeated the last one! Our saviour!
• The campaign is over, you win.

If you win the game but not the campaign:
Congratulations, you are one step to succeed!
• Remove the Ancient one from the deck and put it into the box.
• Take the investigator's trophies and the 6+ adventure cards laid down in the table and put them aside from the Adventure Card deck.
• Take the current Mythos card and put it aside the Mythos deck.


Omens of the World Campaign
Aim
The aim of this campaign is guide you in a journey through all the expansions you have and you had selected to run the campaign.

Details
The goal is to defeat 8 Ancient Ones before 16 investigators are devoured.
The campaign consists in individual game sessions when 2 investigators fight against 1 Ancient One following all the rules of Elder Sign game.
There is no limit to the number of game sessions you could play.
You are going to travel through different scenarios (Museum, Arkham, Alaska, the Ocean, Egypt...) and you will stay in a scenario until you defeat all the selected Ancient Ones for that scenario. After that you will go to the next scenario until either 8 Ancient Ones are defeated or the 16 investigators are devoured.

You will need at least two out of the Museum expansions to play this campaign.
An expansion is considered an out of the Museum expansion when leads you out the Museum of Arkham and has its own set of Adventure cards and its own set of Mythos cards. (ie. Gates of Arkham expansion, the Omens of... expansions)
For simplicity from now on the base game with the optional addition of Unseen Forces expansion will be called Museum expansion. Will be treated as a whole for picking investigators and Ancient Ones.

Setup the campaign
• Pick up the Museum expansion and at least two out of the Museum expansions.
• You can add the Grave Consequences expansion and other promo cards as well to spice the campaign.
• Choose between 2 and 3 Ancient Ones per expansion.
• For every Ancient One you chose on a specific expansion choose 2 investigators of the same expansion (ie. If you chose 2 Ancient Ones from Omens of Ice, choose 4 investigators from the same expansion)
• Group the Ancient Ones per scenario, then order each group as you like it. The scenario will be played following the order the expansions were published (Museum, Arkham, Alaska, the Ocean, Egypt...)
• The setup of the decks for each expansion are the same as mentioned before in the setup for Elder Gods campaign.
• If there are overlap in the instructions between this campaign and the Elder Gods campaign, the instructions noted in this campaign overrides the instructions mentioned in the Elder Gods campaign.

Setup game
Pickup all the components related to the current scenario to setup the game.
You must use all the components corresponding to the Ancient One's scenario you are about to play. However you can use any fresh investigator from the investigators deck, even if the investigator belongs to other expansion. (ie. If you are in Alaska, fighting the Ancient One Rlim-Shaikorth, you should follow the instructions in the OoI manual to combine base game plus OoI components, but you can use Kate Winthrop and Jenny Barnes as investigators)
The setup of the game is the same as mentioned before in the setup for Elder Gods campaign.

Game
The game play is the same as mentioned before in Elder Gods campaign.

After the game
The after the game instructions are the same as mentioned before in Elder Gods campaign with the following addition:
• If you win the game but not the campaign and if all the Ancient Ones for the current scenario are defeated move to the next scenario.


Ancients at Extreme Campaign
Aim
The aim of this campaign is to give some spice for a seasoned Elder Sign player.

Details
Pick one of the campaigns described up above and add the following changes:
• Change the condition for each Ancient One in the campaign. If they awake, the investigators are devoured and you lose the game.

Omens of the World Campaign - 1 of 8

Thanks for running this again!

We just got the Sand and Water Omens, so we are playing the Omens campaign. We'll finish by fighting the new Cthulhu, as it is thematic. I am re-reading Call of Cthulhu at the moment.

Order:
Museum x 1
Gates x 1
Omens of Ice x 2
Omens of The Pharaoh x 2
Omens of the Deep x 2

We picked some "name brand" Great Old Ones:
Yig
Yog-Sothoth
Haunter of the Dark
Nyarlathotep
Rhan-Tegoth
Ithaqua
Dagon
Cthulhu

Hand picked Investigators:
Jenny Barnes & Daisy Walker
Wilson Richards & Roland Banks
Amanda Sharpe & Zoey Samaras
Patrice Hathaway & Luke Robinson
Tony Morgan & Agatha Crane
Rex Murphy & Sefina Rousseau
Wendy Adams & Calvin Wright
Charlie Kane & Carson Sinclair

Goal: No-one gets devoured. Because we picked good investigators, we might randomly draw them sometimes.

Battle 1
: Amanda Sharpe & Wilson Richards (random) vs Yig in the Museum. Easy win for the investigators.

Plays: 6
Ancient Ones defeated: 5
Investigators: 14

Game 1: Michael McGlen and Dexter Drake defeated Ithaqua. Largely thanks to Michael Glen who had a constant stream of items and clues to help him. Dexter did very little tbh.
Game 2: Michael McGlen and Dexter Drake defeated Yog-Sogoth. Again largely due to Michael McGlen but Dexter finally came through in the end and had a huge amount of spells. They are now both exhausted so its time for two new investigators.
Game 3: Joe Diamond and Carolyn Fern defeated azathoth. Very close to the wire with azathoth only needing 1 more doom token to win. Mainly held back by the red dice being locked almost the whole game. When unlocked, the flood gates opened as there was about 10 items that used the red dice on the table.
Game 4: Carolyn Fern was pretty useless to be honest for the whole game but Joe Diamond and his re-rolls meant that they were halfway towards the win before the first doom token hit the board for Shub-Niggurath. However Joe overextended himself and despite several clues to hand perished, with Carolyn Fern quickly following. First loss.
Game 5: Michael McGlen and Dexter Drake easily dispatch Shub-Niggurath without any problems to be honest. Easy win.
Game 6: Michael McGlen and Dexter Drake's hot streak continued with Dexter especially pumping out a shedload of spells to assist the both of them. Another easy win but next round two new investigators must step into the breach.

Omens of the World Campaign - 1 of 8

I played and completed this last year but never formally entered the challenge. This year I'm playing again, so I'm in!

We just got Omens of the Pharaohs and Omens of the Deep, so we are playing the Omens campaign. We'll finish by fighting the new Cthulhu, as it is very thematic.

Order:
Museum x 1
Gates x 1
Omens of Ice x 2
Omens of The Pharaoh x 2
Omens of the Deep x 2

We picked some "name brand" Great Old Ones:
Yig
Yog-Sothoth

Jenny Barnes & Daisy Walker
Wilson Richards & Roland Banks
Amanda Sharpe & Zoey Samaras
Patrice Hathaway & Luke Robinson
