Let me start with the details stolen frominspired by Duke of Earl:

This is BGG Play by Forum Arkham Horror game number 60.

This game is by invitation only.
If you wish to participate, there is a waiting list here:
http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/AH_PBF

Post Typography
* Normal text for discussions, etc.
* Italics for flavor text/fluff. This is optional, but encouraged.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions.

Images
Please use images in your post to identify your character when you post. It helps people keep track of who everyone is. You can find some banners for this and other games here: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/63469/play-forum-banners

Subscribe to the thread!
I will usually refer to everyone by their character name and gender. Don't be offended by that.

For the sake of game speed, COs (Conditional Orders) are a great way to keep things moving along unless you check in frequently. Although I can't always promise to remember them [grin].

I encourage all players to roll for themselves as much as possible, and give me as much information as they can about what they're doing and what the outcome is. It makes updating so much easier for me.

I tend to do updates once a day. I find that, in general, if all moves can be done inside of a day or two that helps move the game along and keeps me involved in it. If you can't do that, at least let me know what to expect.

To that end, discussion and even random chit-chat is encouraged. I find that everyone being involved in the thread helps move the game along.

Game Type
This will be a 4 - 8-player game using the Base Game.

Every player receives 3 random investigators, of which he or she chooses one to play as, unless there aren't enough investigators to go around, at which point they get two.

This is a text-only game, meaning that I won't be doing image updates. What I plan to do is give my text updates, and a link to an image of a blank board for a reference. Alternatively, a player -- or even a non-player -- can volunteer to produce images. It's up to you. You can see the format of my text posts in any game that I've run (40, 41, etc).

Note that I also like to provide a little narration/flavour text of my own around the story. Hopefully, it will be entertaining. The title of the thread relates to what I'm planning to do this time, so if you can identify it you'll get a sneak preview.

I'll invite a few more than you'd expect due to no replies and the issues with text only games. I'm also ignoring the timezone restrictions for the invite list, mostly because I don't see it as a problem with my update schedule and because the list moves slowly enough that people might just want to play any game that comes along.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Thanks for the invite but unfortunately I'm quite busy at the moment so I'm going to have to decline as it's probably not a good time to be starting a new game.

Well, I said I wanted to do character selection on Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest, and it's Tuesday and we have five players, so I'm just going to go ahead and start character selection. First we need to decide turn order. The lower number starts earlier in the turn order:

monogarden 1d100 = (8) = 8
Keisus 1d100 = (65) = 65
Daemonis 1d100 = (49) = 49
Gilderoy 1d100 = (91) = 91
patparker 1d100 = (78) = 78

Joe gave me a call saying that something is going down in town and he may be in need of my services. Hopefully things won't get too hairy.

I've been living
On the edge of time
Never thinkin'
Twice inside my mind
I've been given
A second chance too...
Since I found him
I never lose

I caught an angel
In my pocket
Got an angel;
He's forever mine
I caught an angel
In my pocket
Got an angel
'Til the end of time

Make three wishes,
Catch a falling star (star, star)
Take me somewhere,
Take me very far
Freedom, fortune
To name a few, too
Holds my secrets
He knows the truth

I caught an angel
In my pocket
Got an angel;
He's forever mine
I caught an angel
In my pocket
Got an angel
'Til the end of time

Now I'm never alone,
He will never leave
I'll conjure thee
Alone every night (every night)
Lead me into
The shadows behind the dark
Lead me into
A forest of light

I've been livin'
On this edge of time
I made three wishes
And now he's mine

I caught an angel
In my pocket
Got an angel;
He's forever mine
I caught an angel
In my pocket
Got an angel
'Til the end of time

Caught an angel
(Oh, oh I know
That he's mine)
Caught an angel
(I wanna keep him
'Til the end of time)



That was a strangely appropriate song.



Yes, but what's really strange is that SHE'S singing it.



What?!? Did you think that I couldn't sing?!? I'll have you know that I can sing as well as any starl ... witch!

[Storms off]



Are you thinking what I'm thinking?



I'm thinking that if Piper can put up with her, she should have no trouble handling an Ancient One.



Odd. I was thinking that she was very lucky that Rose isn't here.

Your ancient one is Azathoth

Combat rating: -∞

Defenses: None

Worshippers: Since Azathoth promises nothing except destruction, only the insane worship him. However, their fanaticism gives them strength. Maniacs have their toughness increased by 1.

Power: Absolute Destruction - If Azathoth awakens, the game is over and the investigators lose.

Attack: The end is here! Azathoth destroys the world.

Doom Track: 14

Dexter Drake, you may choose two spells from: Dread Curse of Azathoth, Find Gate or Red Sign of Shudde M'ell

Everyone else, set your initial sliders -- what's in the update has no relation to what your character can have, so please look it up and give something sensible -- and then after that I'll draw the first Mythos.
