Saturdays 15 July; Eldritch Horror   Leave a comment

Mike brought over eldritch horror for another truly horrific game with Phil, Darryl, Alex and Bruce.  Phil died on turn two when he realised the soldier had rubbish sanity and a monster dropped on him during the mythos phase whilst he was combating a monster.  His next character proved more hardy and survived to the end.

The players faced the northern winter and the elder one soon spawned despite their best efforts.  They quickly finished the third mythos card and were ready to take it on.  Unfortunately the freezing cold of the winter brought on more hypothermia killing both Bruce and Alex.  This was awkward because, one the monster was now out of reach to be attacked and two, more importantly the players had been relying on Alex and his mighty card which allowed him to deliver huge damage on the monster in just one go!  Basically if he had not died during the mythos the players would have won!

So yet again the horrific horrors prove victorious against our hapless heroes.
