are starting a new Mythos PBF game.

Let's roll for Investigator announcement. Roll 1d12. Highest roll announces first.

The die rolls can be our seating order as well. Make sense?

My roll: 1d12 = (10) = 10

OK, so the seating order is:

Tom (me)

Andrew

Nick

I announce the Exploited Coal Miner as my Investigator.

I don't plan to use his special discard ability.

Starting Sanity is 14 I believe.

Beginning sanity is 14*

*Have opponent to your right cut his or her deck and look at the bottom card of the cut. Add sanity gain or loss indicated in that card's pentagram (if any).

Sorry, should have made that clearer...

Andrew's to my left and Nick is to Andrew's left.

So I'm at 15 Sanity and you two are at 14 each. Highest education goes first.

Ah yes! you are right.

Andrew's Investigator is at 15 and mine is at 14. No change to the order however since my Investigator is Education 6.

Having slipped away from his "guides" (see PBF Game 2), Carlin the coal miner finds himself still in the Dreamlands, on the shores of a lake in the land of Mnar.

Card Play: The Nameless Lake

Reveal (and Discard) top card from each opponent's Deck – apply Sanity gain/loss to yourself.

85 card deck (gulp) thoroughly shuffled and cut.
13 cards drawn.

Top card of Mythos deck is: Powerful Storms - no sanity gain/loss.
Powerful Storms is discarded.

If a man is insane is he still guilty?
Insane or not I will finish my time here and search for those things I dream. And dream I do. And yet of late those dreams grow more vivid and ever more disturbing.

Massachusetts State Hospital
+4 sanity - now 19.

Reveal top card of Mythos deck applying any sanity gain/loss:
Amnesia (discarded)- no sanity gain/loss.

Approaching the ruins came a serious looking man. Somehow I didn't feel frightened; in fact I was pleased to see a living thing in this desolate place.

Card played: Taran-Ish (Ally. Mnar)
Can know one spell. When spell is cast you may choose to flip the spell face-down and pay its sanity cost instead of burying it.

Edit: card value 1

The sound of gravel crunching beneath feet causes Carlin to whirl. Two men approach. "Hello fellow traveler!" the older one says. "I'm Carter, and he's Carter... no relation."

Card Play: Randolph Carter (Dreamlands version) (2) using his special ability to Join with Lin Carter (1)

I clutch to my chest one of the few possessions allowed me these past years. I know it word for word. And the dreams get stronger. What was my crime? What did I do?

Can a man truely forget? Can a man be truely cured? And who are the sane to say who is insane? I refuse to forget. What I did I did and is part of what I have become.

Amnesia on Nick.

Randomly choose one card from your opponent's Hand that he or she must Discard, then bury this card.

Random card from hand discarded: resurrection (spell)

A object caught the fading light, half buried in the dust. What's this? She slipped the metal piece into her pocket. As she touched it she thought of home.

"And an ill wind as well" continues Randolph Carter, nodding toward the low wall of fog rolling slowly towards them off the lake.

Card Play: Rotate location to use gate; one face-down card played to Threat.

And in my dreams something stirs. Is it so wrong to believe it is real?
I look beyond the walls of this asylum - and see insanity.

Through the bars of my cell:

Full Moon - it is night

Nice bit there!


Out of the fog a shape begins to emerge. Carlin steels himself and prepares to run; what kind of nightmare is this. The other two dreamers stand placid, as if expecting the stranger in the mist.

Before Carlin can scream at him to stop, Lin Carter steps forward arm outstretched to the being. The fog seems to melt away and an indigo-robed, bearded young man accepts the artist's hand with a firm grip.

Card Play: Captain of the White Ship
