Pallid Mask Scenario
3 characters, Mark, Sefina, and Akachi on hard difficulty
Everyone is on the starting location

First Investigation phase - all equip themselves

First enemy phase - nothing

First upkeep phase - Akachi draws her basic weakness "Overzealous" which reads: Revelation - "Draw the top card of the encounter deck. That card gains Surge"

Akachi draws The Pit Below -
"Revelation - Attach to your location - Attached location gets +1 shroud"
"Forced - At the end of the round, Each investigator at attached location takes 3 Damage - Discard The Pit Below"

AND when is the end of the round ? Exactly Now !! zero chance for anyone to move away.
All take 3 damage, Akachi is already down to a single health due to her two physical trauma. Sefina is down to 2 health.

Yow, this game is CRUEL !

I drew the surge, but it was "only" Eyes in the Walls, which I passed with a Guts commitment.

The mythos phase is the beginning of the round, which would allow you to move away before the next upkeep phase ends. Is a horrible card though if you have multiple enemies engaged to you or if you can't move because you don't have enough clues to reveal a new location.

Kaerazy, what you say is true, BUT I was forced to draw the card DURING THE UPKEEP PHASE, rather than the Mythos phase.

Oooh, missed that part. Never had the weakness before so I didn't realize that was even an option. So yeah, shitty opening round.
