This is the sixth BGG Arkham Horror Play By Forum game. The title is a part of a quote from the Necronomicon.

Geeklist for this game: Arkham Horror Game 6 - Even Death May Die

Thanks to:
dukeofearl for setting the standard for the Arkham Horror PBF games and for supplying all the necessary files
coltsfan76 for the inspiration by his Battlestar Galactica PBF games
sleepybrett for the "investigator sheet" part of the board images

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. I will post banners of the players once everyone has chosen their investigator.

Subscribe to the thread!
I will usually refer to everyone by their character name. For the sake of game speed, COs (Conditional Orders) are a great way to keep things moving along unless you check in frequently.

Game Type
This will be a 5 player Base game. All cards, investigators and AO will be chosen from the base game pool only.

Character Choice
Every player receives 2 random investigators, of which he or she chooses one to play as. If his investigator is devoured the player chooses a replacement from the remaining investigator plus one random investigator.

Invited Players
ShaunFable - no response
ketchupgun - IN
Azriel - declined
tarheel - no response
sleepybrett - no response
Zeller - IN
ethical - Alternate 2
psmaylott - IN
aleighj - IN
streetsmartdan - IN
Capt_WaRPed - Alternate 6
mooselord - Alternate 7
Praxus - Alternate 8

There's less than 24 hours to the invitation deadline so I've invited some more alternates so that we can get started as planned.

It would be really sad if 7 alternates aren't enough to fill 5 spots. But I'll add you to the end of the list just in case.

We now have 5 players who have accepted an invitation, but all the original invitees were given a deadline that ends on Friday at 11:00 CET.

In 12 hours we will have finalized the team heading for Arkham.

After the deadline I will post which Investigators all participants get to choose from.

I'll try to stay close to the same formatting as DukeOfEarl, so take a look at one of his moderated games (#1,#2,#3 or #5) to get the feel of what it's like.

3 hours until deadline.

Is there a strict order of choosing characters or can I choose whenever I'm online?

There's no special order of choice. It's all open for discussion as well if you want your team's input.

[edit: spelling]

Wow, decisions, decisions... cry
I guess I'll choose the Sister because the only thing I hate more than her are Speed 3 investigators.

UPDATE: Ok, I made a cool banner for her and I'm in a better mood about playing her now. Let's see what unspeakable horrors she can kill. ;-)

So do we want a "mind-healer" or a brusier?

I do all the dice rolling for you. You can give Conditional Orders (CO's) while giving your orders to let me know if you want to spend clue tokens for additional rolls and so on. If no CO's are given I'll pause to ask.

In order to help us get started I'll let Pete look at the bottom of the Common Item deck and the Unique Item deck before Zeller has choses his Investigator.

Jumping ahead of time to the middle of Game Preparation Steps 7-9:
The bottom of the Common Item deck contains .18 Derringer
The bottom of the Unique Item deck contains Nameless Cults

Pete, do you want to draw your random Common and Unique Items from the bottom or the top of the deck?
