Am I missing something or this guy (Roland Banks, the Fed) is immune to Nyarlathotep's attack because of Intuitive ability (gains 1 Clue token if he has fewer than 2 Clue tokens)?

Yeah, and McGlenn is immune to Rhan-Tegoth by the same token. I'm not sure where the proto-faq stands on the issue, but we've house-ruled in the mean time that Roland's power doesn't work against Nyarly and McGlenn's doesn't function against Rhan.

From FFG forum: "there are plenty of other investigators that lose their special abilities once Final Combat starts." Can someone list them, please?

McGlen vs. Rhan was officially clarified by Kevin Wilson before Innsmouth came out.

Certain investigator abilities don't work because they simply don't. Don't take this to mean that some investigator abilities inherently quit.

Aside from abilities that don't make sense in final combat, here are the investigators whose abilities either do not work anymore, or need to be clarified:

*Jenny's ability doesn't work anymore because investigators can't gain money in the Final Combat.
*The proto-FAQ says that Roland's abilities do not work in Final Combat. However, it's better just to play that investigators may NEVER receive clues during final combat (similarly to money) so that Nyatlathotep can never be put in this position again.
*As Dam said, stamina loss from Rhan-Tegoth's attack cannot be reduced by any means, including Michael McGlen.
*Lily Chen: officially she can't gain more than one point total of sanity OR stamina at any point during the game, but this is particularly important with regards to a few base-game AOs.
*Minh Thi Phan: I don't know if all the investigators are in the same place so that she can issue her bonus, but they can trade items so I'd say yes. This also has foul implications for the "Paranoia" madness card.
*William Yorrick: same as spending your last clue against Nyarlathotep, he will not be devoured if he spends his last monster trophy against Shub-Niggurath. However, he will be devoured the next time Shub attacks, regardless of if he passes the defense check. So you better make that last trophy count!
*Wilson Richards: officially, his focus is 4, and his special ability is that he can move his sliders without spending focus. This is only really relevant against Yibb-Tstll.

Yeah, we had the same issue before. I think our solution is consistent with what kungfro proposed above.

The first reply to an Arkham Horror question is *always* made by you. Did n't you know that?

UGH really? I disregarded your post on the "stamina damage" thread but cited a non-existent post in this one? blush

Okay. Thanks ROB for posting the errata. Thanks DAM for posting in that other thread.

I am so happy that I finally have coffee again. robot

She cannot change her maximum sanity/stamina twice then? (she has 2 Focus points).

Does Mandy Thompson's ability still work with Ancient Ones?

Yes, she may change her maximums as much as her focus allows. However, doing so will only heal her one point of sanity/stamina total.

For example: if she raises her sanity maximum by 2, she only gains 1 sanity. Toggling her sanity/stamina slider back and forth in the same move won't get her any points, because she heals based off of her slider's final position.

As long as someone's making a skill check (as opposed to Yibb-Tstll's focus-roll or something similar), Mandy may allow failed dice to be re-rolled.
