Abhoth - At setup I remove 8 cultists from the monster cup and set them aside for easy access during reckoning and perhaps a mystery effect... no problem.
During the course of the game, I also draw a few cultists from the monster cup during normal play.
When I defeat a cultist, and know that there are more than 8 now in play, where does the defeated cultist go? Back in the monster cup, or back on Abhoth's card until there are 8? Or at this point do all defeated cultists go on Abhoth's card?
All defeated cultists go on Abhoth's card until there are 8 on the card.
If you defeat a cultist and there is already 8 on Abhoth's card, it goes back to the monster cup
