This is BGG Play by Forum Arkham Horror game number 42.

Sorry, this is invite-only. If you wish to participate in one of these games there is a waiting list here: http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/AH_PBF

Geeklist for this game can be found here TBA:

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

Images
Please use images in your post to identify your character when you post. It helps people keep track of who everyone is. You can find some banners in this geeklist. Doing this helps me avoid being confused. Please don't confuse the person with access to a bag full of Shoggoths.

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 unless you check in frequently.

Game Type
This will be a 6-player game using the following expansions:
Base + Dunwich + King in Yellow.
I am choosing the expansions to use based on the preferences listed by people at the top of the waiting list. Anyone waiting for a Base Only game, I will likely host one of those after this one is complete.

Character Choice
Every player receives 3 investigators, of which he or she chooses one to play as.

Invites will go out sometime today to: (including people who listed different preferences just in case something has changed since they posted the preference)
oldpear - DECLINED
shpigulinman IN 1d100 = (58) = 58
Time 2 Roll - DECLINED
Higherrolls
Spottie
TheLastBert - IN 1d100 = (50) = 50

Alternates:
Deekow
Marlowespade - DECLINED
leandromota
TheNameWasTaken - IN 1d100 = (81) = 81
rdonoso - IN 1d100 = (4) = 4
kjpw_88

Character Sheets
Character sheets aren't mandatory, but are very helpful for me, because I'm easily confused and it helps to have a sanity check (no pun intended) on what's going on with each character.

I use this one when I'm playing in games:

Current Sanity: , Current Stamina , Focus: 2

Speed: 1 2 3 4 Fight: 1 2 3 4 Lore: 1 2 3 4
Sneak: 4 3 2 1 Will: 4 3 2 1 Luck: 4 3 2 1


$5 –   mb mb - Unique, Unique, Common, Common, Skill, Ally

Tropies: (0 Toughness)
Gate: (0)

Map Images
I will be managing the game using Vassal. Map images will be generated from Vassal and posted here, along with links to the logfiles.

There is no requirement for individual players to install Vassal, but if you want to, so that you can follow through the logfiles and watch out for mistakes that I might make, feel free. If you need help figuring out how to install the modules, PM me.

I'm in!

I'm away from home this weekend - I'll probably be able to post from my phone but I won't be able to do banners or anything. If that's a problem feel free to reject my acceptance!

I'm going to try to be a bit patient with people at the top of this list, since the list moves so slowly people may have stopped checking in.

If we have at least four people by Friday night, I will kick things off and send out character choices.

No problem if you can't add banners, etc. As long as you put your character name at the top of the post, I won't be too confused

If there's a free spot for me, I'd be very glad to be in!

Edit: oh wait, just noticed that this game includes Dunwich. I don't have it - can I even play in this case?

The general rule is that you can't play a game unless you own it and any expansions in play ...

Ok, looks like it will probably be 4. I'll allow anyone who responds today to still get in, but might as well get character choices out of the way.

shpigulinman:

Hey fellow investigators! I'm out of town this weekend and away from my board. Can I make my decision Sunday night? Or I can pick randomly if that slows down the game too much for people.

We can wait until you are ready.

If it helps:
Pete can draw from the top or bottom of any item deck. (He gets to look at the bottom card)

Jenny has the Trust Fund, earning $1 every round

Vincent is the doctor

All three are 3 max speed. Pete has a 5 fight, Vincent 5 lore, Jenny is 4 in both.

I choose the Doctor.

I can no longer ignore this spate of strange symptoms and deaths in Arkham. I must do something to investigate.

I am just now realizing that I misread rdonoso's roll.

His random method actually picked Sister Mary, and not Jim Culver...

Ricardo, it is your choice. Do you want to keep Jim or switch to Sister Mary?

Random Draw items will stay the same (where applicable).
