Hi. So we were playing with the king in yellow expansion using the king in yellow herald. There was one space left on the doom track and we drew the next act begins card when we were already in act 2. The text of that card reads exactly this:

The terror level is increased by 1. However, no gate is opened this turn.
The next act of the charity performance of The King in Yellow has begun.
The first player must put the top card of the Act deck into play.
The first player gains 1 Clue token.

Playing with the king in Yellow herald, when the terror level goes up you must add a yellow token either to the terror track which causes blights or the doom track, in which they act as a doom token. Based on the order of the text on the card, we added it to the doom track, which as per page 20 of the original rules awakens the ancient one immediately. Since the ancient one is now awakened we ignored the rest of the card. What do you guys think? Should we have accepted act 3 beginning and finished the card or not. We also did not give the first player a clue

Yup, I would have done the same... If an AO is waking up... even The King in Yellow would stop a performance. goo = angry --> gulp

It's bad form to ignore the star of the show...especially if the GOO is Hastur!
