For the duration of the game, let's treat this thread like we do OOC threads in other PbG games. All chatter, discussion, tactics, die rolling, shit-talking, etc should go here and the other thread will be for the map as it changes from turn to turn.
The game will begin with the drawing of a Mythos card as the Ancient One begins stirring. Before that, let me introduce our cast of characters.
The Ancient one is Nyogtha, who old-school Metallica fans might know better as The Thing That Should Not Be. Looking at Nyogtha's sheet, it is able to reach through reality, so any time some variation if "a monster appears!" happens during the Arkham Encounters of Other World Encounters phase, the Tendril of Nyogtha will be that monster. It's deadly, icky, and cannot be claimed as a monster trophy by any means. Note that Tendril of Nyogtha will not appear as part of a normal gate opening or when "a gate and a monster appear!" is encountered. As well, Witches, Warlocks and Ghouls become much harder to fight.

Have a quick look over each of them, their special abilities and their current gear. We'll need to decide on a full turn order before we start the first round.
