Hello,

I wanted to clarify some of the Shoggoths moves.

1. When a Shoggoth needs to summoned thru Evil Stirs and the location is also a Portal, does it mean an Old One needs to be revealed or will this happen on the next summoning card having the shoggoth symbol?
2. When a Shoggoth moves to the Portal, does it awaken a Old One or will it happen after the next Summoning card with tha Shoggoth symbol?

Next card to both. It's when a Shoggoth is activated while already on an open portal that Bad Things happen.

Thematically, it's the act of moving through the portal that causes the awakening, so moving to/spawning in a location with a portal just put the Shoggoth within distance of it, and it won't be until it tries to move again that it can pass through.

Oh great! Thanks for the clarification and now the use of Portals for moving thru gates seems to be more useful to stop Shoggoths
