Eldritch Horror PBF 1: From Beyond
This is the first PBF game of Eldritch Horror here on the 'Geek.

I am testing out both my Spreadsheet and board creator during this game. I am certain errors will be made - please feel free (players and/or observers) to offer suggestions on improvements or note any mistakes made.

Post Typography
* Normal text for discussions, etc.
* Italics for flavor text/fluff. This is optional, but encouraged.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions.

Round Flow
During each Round, I will post tokens with which to enter the actions or encounters you wish to take on the given turn. They will look like the following:

Action Phase: Turn 0 wrote:
Please post below the actions you would like to take. If those actions depend on previous players (trading, acquiring assets, etc.), please wait for your turn to execute those actions.

Akachi: Move to Space 7, Take Train Ticket
Charlie: Aqcuire Assets, Rest (roll for Hallucinations)
Diana: Use character ability to kill Monsters in space, Rest
Jaqueline: Move to Arkham, spend Train Ticket to move to Space 5, Rest
Jim: Wait for Charlie's Acquire Assets
Leo: Use character ability to acquire Ally, Rest
Lily: Rest, Pass
Lola: Trade with Charlie, Move to Space 1

Please either post in these tokens the actions or encounters you would like to take, a CO of the actions or encounters you would take depending on previous results, or an indication that you would like to wait for previous players to resolve their actions or encounters before deciding.

Images
Please always start your posts with your character's banner. Alternately, if you are in a hurry, posting from a mobile device, etc., bold your characters name at the top of the post. The banners are as follows:


I know - they still have the AH art. If someone wants to make new EH ones, I'll pimp them here!)

Subscribe to the thread!
I will usually refer to everyone by their character name. For the sake of game speed, COs (Conditional Orders) are a great way to keep things moving along.

Game Type
This will be an 8-player game. Once we have confirmed players, we will randomly determine seating order and will choose characters based on that order. Also, we will elect which Great Old One to use at that time. Finally, I am also open to altering the difficulty of this game per the rules.

Players
Invitations are first going out to players who expressed interest on this thread. If you would like to be put on the waiting list, please contact me. If we have enough interest, I may start a second game once the first one is off and running.

Invited Players
Acererak IN
koenigcitizen IN
MasterDinadan IN
lankyb IN
shnar IN
schmloof IN
Sandlewood99 IN
XDarkAngelX IN

Alternates

5L-3I-3O-2S-4W
●● ○○ ●○ ○○ ●○
-TICKET- -TICKET-

I should modify the original post to indicate this. You do need a copy of the game to play. I will not be posting card text, so you will need the cards from the game to know what they do.

Wooooo! I'm in! Tangentially related : do you guys pick your characters in your own games or random? My friends always pick their own but I always go random with veto power if I've played it recently.

Or our other method where everything gets two random each to choose from but you can veto both and take a random third that you MUST choose.

I have no idea what the official rules say.

I'm in. If nobody raises any serious objections to it (maybe someone will go insane if we don't try to pick an optimal team, or something ), I'd like my character to be a random pick from whatever is left once everybody took their favorite.

Official rules are character selection from the pool. As there are 8 players and only 12 investigators, choosing randomly would have to be completely blind. So, for this one, we'll determine turn order and allow players to choose whomever they would like.

Assuming MasterDinadan is playing, let's determine seating order!

shnar 1d100 = (93) = 93
Acererak 1d100 = (80) = 80
schmloof 1d100 = (78) = 78
lankyb 1d100 = (47) = 47
MasterDinadan 1d100 = (38) = 38
koenigcitizen 1d100 = (28) = 28
Sandlewood99 1d100 = (14) = 14
XDarkAngelX 1d100 = (9) = 9

shnar, you're first to choose a character!

EDIT: Also, please send me a vote for the Great Old One you would like to face this game!

That's too bad. I think I'll still follow the thread, to see how the game works.

You can skip me for character selection -- just give me a random after everyone else has chosen. Or, if you prefer, give me a random on my turn.

How did you do the dice roll on the bottom?
