goo Welcome to the fifth PBF for Eldritch Horror on BGG. goo

If you're interested in joining, please post in this thread.

Priority will be given to:
1. other Eldritch Horror GMs
2. players from the Waiting Room
3. players who haven't already participated in one of the other PBFs

First come, first served...


IMPORTANT:
This PBF will use the Eldritch Horror base game and the Forsaken Lore expansion.
You must own a copy of both in order to participate, as I won’t be posting the card texts of assets, artifacts, spells, conditions, etc.

Game Type
This will be a game with max. 6-players, using the Forsaken Lore expansion.
Once we have confirmed the players, I will randomly determine the seating order and first Lead Investigator, and then you will choose your character based on that order, starting with the Lead Investigator.
At the same time you will choose which Ancient One you want to play against. A somewhat fitting name for this PBF game will be chosen once the Ancient One has been picked.
Finally, I am also open to altering the difficulty of this game as per the rules.

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

I’m not a fluff-writer, so don’t really expect any from me. blush

Round Flow
During each Round, post the actions or encounters you would like to take, a conditional order of the actions or encounters you would like to 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.
Please be precise in your orders, and conditional orders are a great way to keep things moving along.

Images
Try to 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 will usually refer to everyone by their character name.

Rolling Dice
Use the geekroll-feature to roll your own dice.
You can use the formula ‘Xd6c[5]’ to immediately get the number of successes you rolled (X = number of dice you need to roll).
If you’re blessed or cursed replace the 5 with a 4, resp. 6.
I’ll roll your dice during the Encounter Phase to speed things up, if possible. In case where I ask you if want to reroll a die, you can roll the dice yourself. This allows you to immediately check if you need or want to reroll it again.

Subscribe to the thread!

And that should be it… goo

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #5 [looking for players]
I would be interested in joining. I'm officially in a different PBF, but that one hasn't seen a post in a while now.

Do you have a specific ancient one in mind? And, no matter who we face, I think that I would like to be Norman, if possible.

I'm from the same PBF that's had little updates, so would like to get in on this one if possible?

Never played Silas Marsh, so would try him for this campaign. I get sea-sick crossing the Clyde, so I'll see if playing him toughens my guts up a bit!

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #5 [looking for players]
Hey all! I'd actually be really interested in this, if that's ok? I haven't played an Eldritch Horror PBF, but I played a Civilization one a few years ago. I don't know if there is a waiting list or some such, and if someone was waiting and I didn't know about it, I'd happily step aside.

Anyways, for character selection, I'd like Trish Scarborough as my first choice, or Leo Anderson for my second choice.

Good luck with the game, people! (God, I really have to get an expansion for myself). And smash the AO one time from me

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #5 [looking for players]
I'm open to play with any Ancient One the players choose.
The one with the most votes will be used.

@Xelto & Gorlab:
If I don't get enough other players, then you can join, but priority will be given to the others, so that they may play too.
If Horror Leader has too much RL-work to do, I can propose to take over PBF #2. That is, if you can live without his fluff encounter phase descriptions.

@Empires:
There is no "official" waiting list, just the Waiting Room, where other players already announced their interest to play in future PBFs.
They'll still have to post here if they want to join.

@Ishtwan:
Sorry again for not doing another base game PBF.
I'm just making use of my GM prerogative to be somewhat "selfish".

I'm interested in playing!

I'd prefer to be Lily, Leo, Trish and Jacqueline (in that order) but I'd be happy to play any character.

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #5 [looking for players]
I am in PBF#1, and there has been very little movement there in the last month.

I understand that I will be down the list, but if you are a player short, I would love to play.

Thanks

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #5
Ok, looks like we have enough victi... volunteers! goo

Based on my priority list and the "first come, first served" principle, the following players participate in this game:
- JayThomas
- Empires
- AnyMouse
- Tikatoy
- hieru
- Turgul


Welcome aboard!


Seating order:
(determined via Excel)

1. Turgul (also initial Lead Investigator)
2. Empirs
3. JayThomas
4. AnyMouse
5. hieru
6. Tikatoy

Starting with Turgul, please tell me the character you'd like to have,
the Ancient One you'd like to play against (a top 2 or 3, if possible),
and any official optional rules that would interest you (in case of a tie we won't use it).

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #5
Hey guys, and thanks for having me on!

I realize I am second on the list, but just so it's out of the way I'd like Trish Scarborough as my investigator (unless Turgul wanted her as he is first, I'll take Leo Anderson )

As for Ancient One, I honestly don't care, I'll play against any evil outer god. Gun to my head, though, why not the Good Ol' Lurker Below, Cthulhu?

I also personally vote no for extra special rules, but whatever is fine.

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #5
Hi guys!

So excited to be part of this! I will update my list of character choice when I get home (I'm still at work... shhh....) but here are my choices:

Character: Lily, Diana, Akachi

Ancient One: Cthulhu would be my first choice, but I'm open to anyone.

Thank you!

Edit for updated character choice

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #5
A guy looks away for a moment and becomes the investigator... what a revolting development

I would like to go with Charlie Kane and try Cthulhu.

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #5
I'll roll with Silas. If no Silas then Norman Withers.

I'd vote for Yig (he took me and Mrs T to school).

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #5
Ok, let's see what we have so far:

Turgul: Charlie Kane - 1. Cthulhu
Empires: Trish Scarborough - no preference (1. Cthulhu)
JayThomas: Silas Marsh - 1. Yig
AnyMouse: Diana Stanley - 1. Yig, 2. Cthulhu
hieru: Lily Chen - 1. Cthulhu
Tikatoy: Mark Harrigan - 1. Shub-Niggurath, 2. Yig

The politician and his team of hired thugs.


It looks like a tie between Cthulhu (2 votes) and Yig (2 votes), each one with a secondary vote too.
If I also add Empires "gun to the head"-vote for Cthulhu, we would get 3 votes for Cthulhu.
Or, since Shub is definitely out of the race, I could consider Tikatoy's secondary vote for Yig has his primary vote, then we would have 3 votes for Yig too.

Cthulhu or Yig?
Should I roll a die?

We are a decidedly martial bunch. It looks like there are enough characters to beat up on the monsters, making Mark not that useful. Can I switch to Jacqueline (so we have someone besides Diana with a good Lore skill)? If not, no big deal.

I'll throw my vote in for Yig! (I'm a "her" btw.)

I think he meant Charlie Kane (the politician). That's how I read it anyway.

Oh, I didn't quote the whole thing. I was referring to this bit:
