Subject: Are there 6 "unique cultists" in Scenario 2? [SOLVED] rss

I must be missing something really obvious, but our group (of four) is going to play Scenario 2 in a couple days. I can only see 5 "unique cultists" in the setup. What am I missing here?

In addition to the 5 unique cultists who have names (and are unique as described on p. 20 of the Reference), there are 3 cultist Acolytes who cannot be "unique" (there are 3 of them), and one cultist Wizard who doesn't have the asterisk to the left of his name, therefore not unique.

If the missing 6th cultist is some sort of "spoiler" event, then please don't post it here but you might just mention it.

Lita Chandler is unique but she isn't a cultist.

The Act 1a card states that "Not all 6 of them are in the Cultist deck" but for the life of me I can't see where the 6th one might be.

I seem to recall people posting that they did manage to find all 6 "unique cultists" so I assume there must be six.

The basic problem here is that we can't advance without 6 unique cultists in the victory display, therefore we either have to voluntarily withdraw, or lose the scenario.

Please help.

It is a spoiler event .

Don't worry about it.

Also, getting all 6 in time is hard, so good luck !

You're okay, just set up and go. Stay away from reading the campaign book beyond absolute set up, leave all the scenario cards nice and face down -- all those locations, acts, agendas, all that stuff, and do try to avoid reading the text on the cards you're adding to your encounter deck.

edit: and don't click the spoiler above goo

My group and I played through this scenario the other night, and because of there being only 5 cards in the cultists deck we made the mistake of thinking that
Spoiler (click to reveal)
one of the acolytes
and
Spoiler (click to reveal)
the wizard
would count towards the 6 unique cultists.

It wasn't until after we had completed the scenario that we realised we were wrong.

Fortunately we didn't get 6 anyway, so it didn't matter.

You don't need to look for him. He will come looking for you.

This made a lot more sense to me when I finally looked up Unique in the glossary, and found out what that star meant.
