Has anyone come up with any Ideas on how to randomize some of the locations in the core set to make the core scenarios have more replay value. I know you can change the the difficulty level of the chaos bag and you can play with a different deck or a different character to change the play experience. What I was look for is a system to maybe randomize the shroud and clue token properties and maybe the room properties so it would add a little more mystery to the game on replay. It is hard not to metagame when you replay a scenario and already know when you go to the basement x will happen and already know the shroud value and the amount of clues that will be available at the location.

I know there is a bunch of new content that can be purchased and a lot of fan based content. I was just looking for ways to get more mileage out of the core set.

Thanks

I've come to the conclusion the core set is really just a delivery vehicle for the first five characters and their player cards. The three scenario mini campaign is just enough to convince you to buy the more robust expansions.

True, but with strange eon blugging you could create alternate location cards and randomice them in the original scenario. So two more studys and some attics and cellars could beef up the original scenarios.

I think all scenarios could benefit from more cards to randomize from.
As I write fan-made scenarios/campaigns going forward I'll be sure to include extra cards. Adding cards to official scenarios could be fun as well, good idea!
