Also:

Sleeper's Demand Sacrifice no longer allows the option of losing a Doom.

It reads:

Pre-Battle
If Tsathoggua is in play, your enemy chooses ONE of the following options before a Battle with you:
1) You gain an Elder Sign.
OR
2) All their Kill results count as Pains on your Units in this Battle

I'm curious why the change was made? Was losing a doom point too easy of a choice most of the time?

That's almost always what's picked in our games.

Losing 1 Doom Point is not a huge penalty - giving Sleeper 1-3 Doom Points is potentially riskier.

Yes. Adn it makes it WAAAAAY more fun. Trust me! Deciding only among those two options is MUCH trickier than having all 3 choices, oddly enough.

Is it a nurf or a buff?

I ask becouse IMO if Sleeper is to be modified it needs a nurf. And as I read it is a buff...

Am I missing something?

Yes, it is a slight buff, you interpreted it correctly. Sleeper does not need a nerf.

I can think of at least one game (on the Primeval Earth Earht map) in which that version of the spellbook would have meant victory instead of third place for me, so this change is much appreciated.
But next time, someone else in our group will play Sleeper, and then it will be to their advantage ... yuk

The Advocate for Yellow Sign approves of the aforementioned change!

Are other Great Old Ones giving you a hard time? Then summon Hastur of the Yellow Sign!

Can someone make a snazzy file of this so I can print it up and patch over my original with it.
