Professor Morgan

It was designed in 20's (as early as 1924 I believe), but only used in military service in the 30s. The story itself is set in 1928. I don't see a big problem here. Fighting alien horrors, you want the best (even if it still is a little "experimental" and not mass-produced) weapon you can find.

Being a know it all here, but I don't think the Patrick McEvoy knew that the Garand wasn't produced until 1936. Dunwich Horror is set in the 20's.


Still, who cares :D

The Claret Knight

1) Pretty much correct. Notice that also sacrifice effects do not work on him, since they are triggered. This is a bit counter intuitive to me, but Damon confirmed, so that's it.

2) Normal combat struggle. The character itself is quite easy to beat, since it has 1 combat, which is what you can find on a lot of cost 1 characters. A simple Undercover Security is already a match and a Black Dog can already kill him, so he is not super impressive. Don't get me wrong, he is solid, but I would take Eibon over him all the time, unless there are specific reasons (like, playing him in a PS deck).

Key-seeker and Gatekeeper from the Secrets of Arkham expansion appear to pay homage to the original Ghostbusters film. In this artwork the Gatekeeper is wearing a red dress very similar to what Sigourney Weaver's character wore while under possession of the Gatekeeper, and the Key-seeker (Key Master) is examining a large dog statuette. 


Edit: I was able to reach out and speak with David Auden Nash, the artist for Key-seeker, about the possible Ghostbusters reference. David did not remember the particulars regarding the art directives he received from FF for this piece, but did acknowledge the art director(s) for the game may have intentionally included the reference.

Would someone clarify (in small, and easily understandable words):

1)  What IS a triggered effect.  I believe it's any effect preceded by Action, React, or Disrupt?

2)  So, how DO you kill the Claret Knight?

The picture is wrong

You do responses after all the stories have been finished. So all struggles and resolution per story, and then the windows for responses opens, followed by player actions once all responses have been finished.

Note, Disrupts and Forced Responses occur when their appropriate triggers says so, which means they can occur during the struggles on a story.

This is shown on p13 of the rulebook, for future reference.

How do responses to winning a struggle work? -Struggle/response/struggle effect: For exemple could I play Political demonstration (core) after winning the (T) struggle to destroy an attachment that gives Willpower and then make the bearer of the attachment go insane for losing the (T). Or -Struggle/struggle effect/response: For exemple could I win the (A) struggle, ready Harlan Earnstone (CotJE) and then exhaust him to play his ability as a response to winning the (A) struggle. Thanks for answering.

Read the story, I believe it's the Dunwich Horror

Probably to shoot things?

Doctor Lomboso

I've always felt Lomboso is best for keeping your opponent in a Control lock (once you manage to obtain it), by stopping them from drawing into solutions and only drawing the same cards over-and-over-again, as you repeatedly drive their characters insane via cards like Deranged Diva. Gives you the time to slowly grind away the stories you need for victory. 


On the bright side, he has decent icons for a Hastur 3 coster.

He's a cool card, with a cool illustration, but why the hell is he holding an M1 Garand?

No hate on Prometheus, but it's a terrible movie.


Also, I feel you guys on the wtfs about the 'cultist' subtype.

I guess you like the card then :D

Possible minor card recursion combo from a noobie.


Chuck a Snow Graves on your opponent's discard pile so they won't get the goodies. Do what Hastur does best, and revel as the loonies give you your At Night they Roams and Power Drains back! :D


I think I'm trying too hard. I just like the art.


Also, this might clog up your draw a bit if you send too many of your loonies kookoo in the same turn.

Thanks! That makes sense to me!

Horrific Statuette

Nov 05 2014 09:27 AM by Danigral


Is it possible to switch a non-printed ability that was gained through an item or another characters effect?


For example, if my watcher of signs has 1 investigation symbol that was gained through controlling only cthulhu cards, would i be able to select that?


Thanks in advance


Yes. Note that Horrific Statuette does not say that you must select "Printed icons". Therefore, any icons that cultist has is fair game for this effect.

I would say that Peter, Naomi, and St. Claire (plus Descendant) would all be better against most decks than the Bootlegger, Arsene Renard, Cascio de Boerio. Why did you choose them in the first place?


These are just my personal opinions, by the way, if you're perfectly happy with the way your deck is now just let me know.
