1) I'd like to find additional wallpapers for the other factions. They are in the digital art book, but they don't have the faction name over the art. Does anyone know if this is available? The wallpapers and art book is here for reference: https://petersengames.com/downloads/

2) I'm wondering if any talented graphic artists out there would consider "down sizing" the neutral GOOs, monsters, and head honcho supreme cultist large format cards into the size of a playing card.

What I'd like to do is make a deck of cards in a tuck box to give everyone to provide more accessibility for neutrals. Not only could we use them to draft, but players could pull in play neutrals' cards out from their decks to have on hand as a reference until they choose to rent a GOO/see what madness their fellow GOO renters are up to. This will really help once my stock pile of neutrals goes through the roof with OS2 and Gods War monsters.

One of the biggest barriers into introducing neutrals is simply the information being out of sight and out of mind.

I'm going to try scanning in the faction boards to downsize to 50% as well to give to other players -- although, I also want avoid having a stack of research to pour through in an otherwise fast moving game.

I played around with it, and formatted the Hound of Tindalos onto a playing card.

I was actually surprised that it is still legible, although there is no room for the silhouette.

Here is a ZIP file of some 960x540 wallpapers I made a few months back, with some variant factions thrown in.

Nice, Dave. I'm glad to know it works. Maybe I should try doing it with Paint.net to see how it turns out. I'm sure it would be better with vector art though.

Give me a few days and I'll see what I can do with the rest of the Neutrals and GOOs.

If you don't feel like, if you share the background, maybe we could all help out. I'm thinking we could probably move any instructional text that is the same for every card to it's own card -- basically a secondary player aide to what comes with the base game.

Those are sweet! I wish they were slightly higher resolution -- I'd like to print them and put on a box I have for each faction.

It didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would.

It comes out as a 34 page PDF. Some of the cards are two-sided, while most are single sided.

All the Neutral Monsters and GOOs are accounted for. I also added in the High Priests (2-sided), Slime Molds, The Watcher (2-sided), The Bhole (2-sided) & the Zoogs (2-sided).

I really wish I'd had The Watcher card the last time I played the Yuggoth map.

Here's a dropbox link to the PDF. https://www.dropbox.com/s/grw4kkdk3ndwd6f/Neutral%20Cards.pd...

Currently it's 1 card to a page. Take a look through it and make sure I didn't make any errors.

Once it goes through a round of edits, I'll lay it out so you can print 9 cards to a page (letter sized).

@dave --- Awesome. Those are looking great. It makes regret not having the two neutral monster packs. I will give them a closer look, but I'm wondering if you think

1) The spellbook for each GOO would fit (some of them are quite long)

2) If it would be worth creating cards for Azathoth's netural spellbooks.

Did you guys hear the Secret Cabal's Dunwich Horror special? It's pretty amazing: http://www.thesecretcabal.com/Home/ArtMID/426/ArticleID/151/...

I've added the Great Old One individual spellbooks to their cards.

Azatoth, Gobogeg, Bokrug, and Cthugha are now 2-sided.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/dgto095sq9dkdcm/Neutral%20Cards%20...

Again, if anyone finds any errors, let me know.

I can set them up to print 9 to a page (double-sided) for ease of printing.

Upon scrutinizing these cards from the game, the style of mixed upper and lower case is very confusing. For instance, "not In Play." Why on earth is "In Play" capitalized?

Fixes:

Uppercase first "however" in Terrors (or change period to comma/semicolon, I don't have this card)

Ghast missing a word between "all 4 Ghasts ___ your controlled"


Independent Great Old Ones

"back in the general Poool

Note regarding independents - but I wonder if you could fit "independents do not count during rituals of annihilation."

Azathoth

"Place Azatoth at your controlled gate

"The player9s) with the"

"with the lowerst roll"

Gobogeg

Might as well move the spell book to the second card

Yig

regardless of many Cultists die). (period should be inside)

"Controlled Gates form the map"

I can't tell if there is a space missing between "Messenger ofYig"

Abhoth

"EITHER you_ Faction has 4+"

Cthugha

"your Great Old One with Cthug_a"

"Kill and Enemy Great Old"

"If Cthug_a is involved in a battle"

Ghatanothoa

Mummify missing colon after

"Ghatanothoa rare immediately"

Maybe move spellbook requirement to the card back

Evocation of Mu should be Execration of Mu

Atlatch-Nacha

"How to Awaken Athlach-Nacha"

Spinnerets missing colon

Father Dagon

Tsunami missing colon

"The In_ssmouth Look


The Watcher

"reaches of exceeds 12 Doom"

It would be sweet if Petersen would put out the final copies of the next monster packs coming in OS2 so we could do it all at once.

Dave, I am waiting on a response from Petersen Games. I asked once a couple of weeks ago, but didn't hear anything. I just sent another one.

In summary, and especially now that the Omega Rulebook is out, I'm seeing if we can get a PDF of the OS2 neutrals so that those can be included.

I would hate to add work to this, so absolutely don't if it isn't something you won't use- but looking at the Great Old Ones, it seems you could do two sides:

A) Awakening cost, combat, ability and spellbooks requirement
B) combat, ability and spellbooks ability

That way you could have one side for before you complete the spelbook, and simply flip the GOO when you complete the requirement.

These look super useful as is, but I think that would be a really nice aid.
