I've heard that the "Twin Blasphemies of the Black Goat" prelude from Dreamlands may spawn both the Nug and the Yeb epic monsters.
But Yeb came with Forsaken Lore.
Can someone verify this, maybe post the prelude's text?
If this is true, than it would be a very interesting precedent.

Not quite able to verify it fully.
But it seems like this is the case:

- https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1708293/twin-blasphemies-bl...
- https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1703902/preludes

It seems like both parties read it the same, but lets be honest, we want a picture to be sure

Word for Word.

Quote:
During step 5 of setup (Determine Ancient Ones), set aside 2 Ghoul Monsters.

During step 9 of setup (Resolve Starting Effects), if Shub-Niggurath is the Ancient One, search the Mystery deck for the Spawn of Shub Niggurath mystery instead of drawing a random mystery.

After resolving setup, each investigator improves Strength and Will. If playing with the Forsaken Lore expansion, spawn the Yeb Epic Monster on The Amazon. Then, if Shub-Niggurath is not the Ancient One, spawn the Nug Epic Monster on The Amazon.

During this game, the Nug and Yeb Epic Monsters each have toughness equal to Investigators+4.

While resolving the Nug Epic Monster's Reckoning effect, if a Ghoul Monster cannot be spawned, investigators lose the game.

Ooof. Just to emphasise that Forsaken Lore makes the game harder, huh?

I kind of like that - it gives something to the people that have everything but doesn't prevent those that don't from using it.

Yes, it's good to know that in the future developers won't shy away from using other-expansion content, all the while making sure to be careful of what components players have available.

They've really learned a lot from Arkham.

Thank you for the verification. For some strange reason I haven't received any reply notifications.
I think it's weird that Yeb doesn't spawn on space 19 like it does in the "Blasphemy of the Black Goat" Mystery.

There is a typo. There is no Spawn of Shub Niggurath mystery. The card must mean Spawn of the Black Goat. Unless there are two different printings.
