We were playing Eldritch Horror and all three players were defeated during the reckoning effect on an ongoing rumor card during the Mythos Phase. On "Choosing a New Investigator" the rules say choose a new investigator at the end of the Mythos Phase. There was still a Gate to be spawned and an Event to do on the Mythos card. Do we just skip those since the Investigators were all defeated and say the Mythos Phase is over?
This reminds me of the Lotr questions if you still do staging when you don't quest. Just because you're slacking off (via not questing or taking a dirt nap or sitting in an asylum) doesn't mean the forces of evil and/or indifferent cosmic horror take a break too.
