Hi everyone - so we had a session of EH last night and for the first time the Doom Track went to zero to awaken the Great Old One (in this case, Cthulhu). My question is about the timing of this - here's how it happened.

- Doom Track is on 1 as we go into the Mythos Phase - we've only solved one mystery by this point
- Mythos Card is drawn, which has an Omen Track icon on it.
- We advance the Track by two - one of which of course awakens Cthulhu.
- Card is flipped and we read out the text which says that "after 3 mysteries are solved, spawn Cthulhu on space whatever".

So, we still have another 2 mysteries to solve as usual, before heading to fight Cthulhu, right? And then the extra Doom Track advance gets added to the Old One Sheet as 1 point of sanity?

The big question is do we then carry on resolving the Mythos card we drew as usual - moving on to the Reckoning icon, opening gates, etc?
