Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

Luke Robinson seems game-breakingly good. Teleport to any gate more or less, enter and close? Every turn?

I still haven't gotten to play it with the last couple of expansions! I'll still be buying this.

He does seem quite good. I do think it quite likely his ability won't work a lot of the time though, at least with fewer players I have often seen no gates of specific omens.

His ability to ignore monsters on gates though is very nice, a no risk version of the spells.

Yeah, I'm a sucker for this game. I'll say my love for it is waning slightly as the games seem super swingy the bigger it gets, but I'll definitely be getting this

40 investigators after this expansion, right?

An awesome gate closer and good at casting spells.
I like the concept.

I mean, I do too, the concept/theme of the character is great.

But it would be somewhat boring to play as him yes? I can't see how it wouldn't just be step 1, focus, step 2, teleport. Rinse and repeat. Sure you may want to try and boost his observation a bit before doing that, but he's very much a one-trick pony.

I usually play solo or with my girlfriend and 4 investigators.
So I would have at least 1 other investigator.
He seems pretty similar to Akachi, I would like to know his starting location/assets.

Looking at the card back of the new card, I wonder if my dreamlands idea was exactly right.

basically, my idea was that the normal gate deck would be completely replaced when using the new Dreamlands sideboard. instead, you encounter one of these dreamlands gates as the only way to get to the dreamlands.

I think this new other world deck would have a different use.
But I'm also very curious how are you going there.

While I see that I'll love most of the cards, I am very unhappy that I'll need to pay for yet another board and it's stuff to get those cards.
No matter how good the board would be, I don't need extra boards in Eldritch.

I have all the AH releases, bar Dunwich Horror, and as soon as the current reprint hits the stores, I will most assuredly be grabbing a copy.

Also, I will be adding The Dreamlands expansion to my currently complete collection of EH.

With my copies of MoM2 and it's two Tile and Figure Collections. I have (or will have) 19 game boxes in the Cthulu line.

That is one heck of a lot of horror !!! zombiegulp

(And to think that six months ago, I had never heard of Fantasy Flight Games!)

I think waiting to release this until next year is a good call. This year we already got Signs of Carcosa, Mansions 2nd Ed, the 1st Ed components for Mansions 2nd Ed, and an upcoming Arkham Horror LCG with a Deluxe box already announced and (if I remember right) coming by the end of the year.

That's a lot of Arkham goodness packed into just a few months; better to space it out a bit more

My call: This new otherworldish deck works exactly like an Expedition deck, but is tied to the Dreamlands sideboard.

Edit: "or you may pursue a Dream-Quest that moves throughout the Dreamlands". Yeah, that's it.

But what are the chances of getting Randolph Carter as an investigator?

44 I think. I wonder if any of the six not yet revealed will be new ones from the new Mansions of Madness edition? I'll hazard a guess at yes.
