“The Really Bad Ones” (v. III)

Type: Act
Encounter Set: Return to The Unspeakable Oath
Clue Threshold: –
Ignore the text on the unrevealed side of Arkham Asylum locations.
Objective – Find the Patient Confinement location with Daniel Chesterfield. (It will instruct you when to advance.)
When you enter his cell, you find Daniel huddled in a corner of the room, sobbing and rocking back and forth on the ground. “No mask, no mask…” he stammers over and over. You help him to his feet and ask him what he remembers about The King in Yellow, but he interrupts you. “I already told you!” he exclaims frantically, his eyes wide with a yellow glow. “Don’t you remember? The last time you came here?” His words make no sense. You’ve only just arrived here…haven’t you? “No, no, no…” The man stammers, falling backward onto the dirty cot in the corner of his room. “It will never end. It will never end until HE is gone for good, and he will never be gone so long as you are here! Get me out! I want out—” Daniel screams for help, but the only response is the creature that suddenly emerges from beneath his cot. Before you can react, its tendrils have wrapped around his body, devouring him whole. His final screams are muffled by the creature’s enormity.
Spawn the set-aside Host of Insanity at Patient Confinement (Daniel’s Cell). Shuffle the encounter discard pile and each enemy beneath the act deck into the encounter deck.
Daniel is somewhere in the secured basement where the most dangerous patients are kept. Now that you have the key, you can explore this area of the asylum.

“The Really Bad Ones” (v. IV)

Type: Act
Encounter Set: Return to The Unspeakable Oath
Clue Threshold: –
Ignore the text on the unrevealed side of Arkham Asylum locations.
Objective – Find the Patient Confinement location with Daniel Chesterfield. (It will instruct you when to advance.)
When you enter Daniel’s cell, you see him sitting on a chair facing the corner of his room. He is scrawling something on the wall, his expression calm. No, not calm—almost devoid of emotion entirely. You ask him what he knows of The King in Yellow, and though he does not speak, you spot his reply written on the wall: “We both know how this ends.” Dumbfounded, you check the rest of his room. There are similar messages along the wall: “You already know of the oath,” “The price has been paid,” “The path has been opened again and again.” None of it makes any sense, but your instincts warn you there is more truth in these messages than there is lunacy. You help Daniel to his feet and try to usher him out of the room, hoping there is something you can do to help him.
Choose an investigator at Patient Confinement (Daniel's Cell). Put the set-aside Daniel Chesterfield card (asset side faceup) into play under that investigator's control. Then, attach the set-aside Radical Treatment treachery to Daniel Chesterfield.
Shuffle the encounter discard pile and each enemy beneath the act deck into the encounter deck.
