We believe we know the history of the Earth, but there are secrets that lie hidden beyond our perception, and truths that threaten to disrupt our conception of the universe. When the renowned historian Alejandro Vela discovers one of these secrets -the ruins of an ancient forgotten Aztec city-, a plan is put into motion that could undo the fabric of time.

In The Forgotten Era, 1 to 4 investigators join an expedition to explore these ruins, venturing into dangerous jungles and forbidden caverns. Will they survive this dangerous journey or will it be their end? This expansion contains the first two scenarios of the campaign The forgotten era, as well as new researchers and player cards that increase the options of personalization of the game.

Wow! I would also bet Yig. That could be a lot of fun.

Wow! Would not expect a possible Yig expansion next. Very exciting! It should be announced within the next week or two, if we're following previous patterns from news announcements.

Monterey Jack HAS to be an investigator in this expansion.

Leo Anderson seems pretty likely, too. Probably a Guardian. Maybe Ursula Downs as well.

I’ve got my fingers crossed we get Diana Stanley, too. She starts in roughly that area in Eldritch Horror.

Daniela Reyes (new Investigator in the next EH box) seems possible.

I wonder if we would get so many explorer themed investigators in this expansion or just 1-2 themed investigators like with Carcosa (Lola and Minh)?

If all 3 are in, I would place them this way:

Guardian --> Ursula Downs (pattern dictates we get a female Guardian next)
Seeker --> Monterey Jack (again, should get a male next)

As for Leo, he could work for Guardian or Survivor, but I think we are overdue for a female Survivor next, so I am not sure where to place him.

FFG could break the male/female pattern (like they did with Jenny --> Sefina and Pete --> Yorrick), so Leo could be Guardian and Ursula becomes our Survivor?

Possibly we'll see Preston Fairmont to provide the funds for such an outlandish expedition.

I might sit out this cycle, until it’s complete.

I think this is highly likely. She is the only investigator to not be in at least 2 games at this point. She'll either show here, Mansions, or Elder Sign.

I would say it will be whichever has a new investigator release first (this?).

Huitzilopotchli (from "The Transition of Juan Romero") would be directly on point as well, but I can't recall if Lovecraft ever returned to the Aztecs after that.

No worries. That won't happen very often.

The purple background is a little jarring but the theme is awesome.

Would that make Norman, with his Livre d'Eibon, a likely candidate then? I don't know much about that part of the mythos but I understand Eibon is associated with Tsathoggua.

Marie, on the other hand, seems less likely.

It says 5 investigators, so no neutral this time, unless they do something really weird.

See, I would have said Norman was unlikely. A lot of people seem pretty confident that Monterey Jack will appear, and he strikes me as primarily a seeker-type. But you could be right too. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

I’d LIKE Marie to be in this box, since she’s the only investigator I don’t own, but I understand that she wouldn’t really fit the theme (not that they all need to).

It was unofficially confirmed by FFG that Maria will be NOT part of next deluxe set (for markering reasons).

Lola and Minh aren’t the only investigators who fit the Carcosa theme. Mark pretty clearly has a mental illness (PTSD). And Sefina is a Parisian artist, as are a number of the protagonists in The King in Yellow.

Yeah? Shame. Can’t say as I’m surprised, though.
