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


Invites have been sent out to the 6 first players on the waiting list from the wiki page.
http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/EH_PBF

Important!
You must own a copy of the game in order to participate, as I won’t be posting the card texts of assets, artifacts, spells, conditions, etc.


Game Type
This PBF will be a 6 player game using only the base game.

In order to get some diversification (for me ), starting investigators can only be chosen from the following list. So far each one of these investigators have been chosen the least as starting investigators in the other PBF games.

° Akachi Onyele - The Shaman (1x)
° Jacqueline Fine - The Psychic (2x)
° Lola Hayes - The Actress (0x)
° Jim Culver - The Musician (1x)
° Mark Harrigan - The Soldier (0x)
° Silas Marsh - The Sailor (2x)

All other investigators have been chosen 4-5x as starting investigators.

Once we have confirmed the players, I will randomly determine the seating order and first Lead Investigator, and then you will choose your investigator 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 and encounters you would like to take, a conditional order of the actions and 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:


Add "medium" (without the quotes) after the imageID number to get the above size of the banner.
If you're quoting someone's post containing his banner, try to remove the "medium" from his banner image.

I will usually refer to everyone by their investigator 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

I'm game (more experience with AH than EH so may be slow), would prefer Culver, or Harrigan, whichever is available at this point.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I intend to send invites out according to the waiting list.
Or else what would be the purpose of having one?

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #8: [name to be determined]
Ok, so far I haven't got a response from three other players, so I sent out three more invites.
Whoever comes first, will join the game.

@anoirtru, MilesF & GregF: Against whom/what do you want to go up against?

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #8: [name to be determined]
Thanks for the invitation - I'd love to play!

I have no real preference for investigators, so since we'll be using all 6 on the list, if there is one that nobody else wants to play, I'm fine taking that one. Lacking that, I'd pick randomly.

For AO, I have a slight preference for Shub-Niggurath, since I haven't fought her yet.

I don't have a preference for AO, in our games we usually draw randomly.

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #8: [name to be determined]
Hi all, I would love to join this game.
For the AO I would like to play against Cthulhu but the others are fine too. I am ok choosing one of the "less used" investigators.
If allowed, I would like to see which Ao we want to play against before choosing, otherwise I will choose when my turn comes, to better balance our team. Sorry, didn't realize they are exactly six. I'm fine with a random investigator. I have a slight preference towards Silas Marsh, but it is no big deal if anybody else wants him.

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #8: [name to be determined]
Ok, that's 6 players, and it looks like we might not even have to fight about who plays which investigator.


Investigators:
- anoirtrou: Akachi Onyele
- MilesF: Jim Culver
- GregF: Jacqueline Fine
- DukeofEarl: Mark Harrigan
- ShawnI: no preference -> Lola Hayes (which skill do you want to improve?)
- Eu8L1ch: Silas Marsh

Seating order and Lead Investigator will be: (randomized via Excel)
- MilesF (Lead Investigator)
- ShawnI
- GregF
- anoirtrou
- DukeofEarl
- Eu8L1ch


Ancient One:
- anoirtrou: no preference / random
- MilesF: no preference
- GregF: TBD
- DukeofEarl: Cthulhu / Shub-Niggurath
- ShawnI: Shub-Niggurath
- Eu8L1ch: Cthulhu

Looks like GregF's vote is decisive (Cthulhu or Shub-Niggurath).

So far we had:
- 2 PBF with Cthulhu (both unfinished/canceled)
- 1 PBF with Azathoth
- 1 PBF with Yog-Sothoth
- 2 PBF with Yig
- 1 PBF with Shub-Niggurath (currently underway)

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #8: [name to be determined]


Shub-Niggurath makes an excellent second choice for me.

What do you guys think about having the starting Rumor, as per the optional rules?




Thanks a lot for the invite, Gilles.

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #8: [name to be determined]


I'll break the tie for Shub.

Edit: And to CO my conditional stuff:
1. Always use my ability to peek at a Condition at the first opportunity.
2. Use Flesh Ward the first time an investigator takes 2+ damage or would become Crippled. After that, I'll revise the CO based on what the side effects are.

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #8: [name to be determined]

I haven't played that often, so I wouldn't be keen on adding variants that make the game more difficult. Also, we have investigators that are somehwat weaker than the others and not the easiest AO.

Sorry, I actually forgot someone had proposed to use a variant.
If you all still want to use one, it's still a possibility.

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #8: Into the Woods

Assuming we don't add a variant:

We need clues for the Mystery, but you're all closer to one than me. I thought of moving to Rome and trying to off the Nightgaunt, to keep the mobs in check. For the second action, I'd get a ticket.

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #8: Into the Woods
I'd prefer no variants myself.



Jim will travel to San Francisco and attempt to make a purchase.

3d6c[5] = (6, 1, 1) = 1
Fail, will discard the Witch Doctor from the pile.

During encounter phase, will take an America one.

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #8: Into the Woods


I would prefer no variants as well.

I'm torn between going to Shanghai to try to improve lore so she has a good chance to cast mists, or jumping on a gate right away. They are both red gates, so they won't trigger for at least a couple of turns. Is Silas going to attempt to close the Sydney gate? If he is not, I might send her there as it has no monsters. What does everyone think?

Gary, are you sure you want to get rid of the Witch Doctor? It's one of the few ways to get rid of a curse quickly.

I'm not overly experienced at the game. But looking it over, the Witch Doctor's the one out of the 4 I'd least want. At least so far. Am open to thoughts, if the move is retractable. But if laid is played, we're doing without a Witch Doctor.

You can change it, if you want to.
Note that you don't have to discard anything.
Also, you can always take a debt to purchase something after all.

Taking a debt to get the Silver Twilight Ritual and pushing Doom back to 14 wouldn't be a bad thing... whistle

Re: Eldritch Horror PBF #8: Into the Woods

I foresee fighting monsters in our future, so Improve strength.

My current plan is to go to Shanghai and try and acquire assets, then encounter the clue. Silas, are you aiming at that clue? If so, I'd probably still go to Shanghai but instead just try to improve lore.

Jim, I personally would take a debt to get the Silver Twilight Ritual, but I can understand not wanting to get a condition that fast.
