A Sinister Realm

Type: Agenda
Encounter Set: Point of No Return
Doom Threshold: 5
A sudden wave of pain and nausea passes over you, and for a brief moment, it seems the very fabric of reality is tearing apart. The feeling passes quickly, but it’s obvious that something is not right.
Shuffle the encounter discard pile into the encounter deck.
Place 1 damage on the scenario reference card.
The Underworld is a cavernous realm, almost another world unto itself. Its ceiling is so far in the distance that it might as well be a somber, overcast sky. The walls of the caverns are dimly lit by a flickering grey light with no apparent source. You wander through the twisting catacombs in search of the way forward, but you can’t shake the feeling that you’re being followed.

Beset by Monsters

Type: Agenda
Encounter Set: Point of No Return
Doom Threshold: 4
(Hint—The game will not necessarily end when this agenda advances…but the stability of reality will continue to unravel.)
Again you are shaken by a sudden feeling of instability as reality shifts and bends around you. The wave is more intense than before, and it seems to originate from the Sea of Pitch in the depths of the Underworld.
Each investigator must either discard 1 card at random from their hand or lose 2 resources.
Shuffle the encounter discard pile into the encounter deck.
Place 1 damage on the scenario reference card. Then:
—If there are 5 or more damage tokens on the scenario reference card, proceed to
(->R2).
—Otherwise, flip this agenda back over.
As you continue to explore, the creatures of the Underworld grow agitated and begin to pursue you, as if compelled by some unseen force.

City of Gugs

Type: Location
Encounter Set: Point of No Return
Victory: 1
Forced – After you enter City of Gugs: Flip it over and resolve the text on its other side.
The kingdom of the Gugs is surrounded by a colossal wall. Inside, cylindrical towers rise high into the mist, each one windowless and made of grey stone, with large looming doorways at the bottom. One black tower stands paramount among the others, rising into the very ceiling of the Underworld. You do not make it very far before you spot the sentry standing guard outside the city’s walls: a tremendous creature with huge furry arms and an obscene toothy maw extending vertically through its head.
Spawn the set-aside Gug Sentinel enemy at this location, with 1[per investigator] clues on it. Test [Agility] (3). If you succeed, Gug Sentinel enters play exhausted and unengaged. Otherwise, it enters play engaged with you.
Flip this card back over.

Crag of the Ghouls

Type: Location
Encounter Set: Point of No Return
Victory: 1
Vale.
Veiled.
The first treachery drawn during the mythos phase by an investigator at this location gains surge.
Looking out over the barren vale, you get a sense for the threats that dwell below. Underneath the plateau upon which you stand, a forest of obscene, pale fungi extends for miles. Beyond that is a great heap of bones, like an ocean pouring forth in all directions. You swear you can see something crawling or worming its way along the surface of the bones, but perhaps it’s just your imagination. In the distance, great sharp peaks of stone loom over the vale. Black, winged creatures fly around the summits, searching for prey. You see no sign of this “ocean of pitch” Pickman described, though you do notice a wide cavern opening along a wall of stone to the right of the vale below…
Look at the top 2[per investigator] cards of the encounter deck. You may discard up to half of those cards. Return the rest to the top of the encounter deck, in any order.
For the remainder of the game, ignore the text on Crag of the Ghouls.
Flip this card back over.

Entering the Underworld (v. I)

Type: Act
Encounter Set: Point of No Return
Clue Threshold: –
Forced – After an enemy with 1 or more clues on it is defeated: Take control of each of those clues.
Objective – Explore this region. (You will be instructed when to advance.)
You launch into a panicked explanation of everything that’s happened to you. When the ghoul hears the name “Randolph Carter,” his demeanor changes. He asks you what has become of Randolph, and you tell him of his friend’s fate. Sadness overcomes the creature. He introduces himself as Richard Pickman, and tells you that Randolph was once his friend. He agrees to let you pass in peace, but not before giving you a warning: strange happenings have been occurring within the Underworld. He tells of dark forces spreading throughout the vale below the Plain of the Ghouls, of vile weavers that crawl along the cavern walls, and of a terrible howling cry that penetrates throughout the realm. All of it, he explains in gibbering speech, emanates from one place: an ocean of pitch in the realm’s deepest layer.
Put each set-aside
Vale location into play.
Find each card from the
Ghouls encounter set and the Striking Fear encounter set (even if they are out of play). Remove them from the game.
Shuffle the set-aside
Terror of the Vale and Nightgaunts encounter sets into the encounter deck, along with the discard pile.
You have succeeded in reaching the Dreamlands, but this is not quite what you expected. You are in the Underworld, and it will take some work to find your bearings in this sinister place.

Type: Act
Encounter Set: Point of No Return
Clue Threshold: –
Forced – After an enemy with 1 or more clues on it is defeated: Take control of each of those clues.
Objective – Find Richard Upton Pickman. (You will be instructed when to advance.)
Randolph gives a shout of recognition as the ghoul approaches. He and the creature shake hands and converse for a short while, after which he introduces you. “This is the ghoul I spoke to you about. He is an old friend of mine, and he has offered to guide us through the Underworld. He has some dire news, however…” Randolph goes on to explain: strange happenings have been occurring within the Underworld. He tells of dark forces spreading throughout the vale below the Plain of the Ghouls, of vile weavers that crawl along the cavern walls, and of a terrible howling cry that penetrates throughout the realm. All of it, he says, emanates from one place: an ocean of pitch in the realm’s deepest layer.
Choose an investigator to take control of the set-aside Richard Upton Pickman story-asset. For the remainder of the scenario, if Richard Upton Pickman leaves play, remove him from the game.

Forced – When you leave Peaks of Thok: You must test [Agility] (2) to climb down safely. If you fail, take 1 damage.
You climb to the top of the hazardous peaks to survey the lands below. From this vantage point, you are able to see the movements of the various creatures that live in the vale. Soaring all around the peaks are black, winged things that somehow scowl at you with empty, expressionless faces. Upon the cliff that hangs over the vale, ghoul eyes watch your progress with morbid curiosity. The mound of bones and detritus below the precipice is home to nothing but the churning and dredging of something massive under the surface. To your left, the misty vale extends for miles until it reaches an enormous stone wall. Opposite the wall, far in the distance, you barely make out the shape of a city in the darkness. Incomprehensible whispers and mocking laughter seep into your ears. You dare no further study.
Search the encounter deck and discard pile for a Hunting Nightgaunt and spawn it at Vale of Pnath, exhausted.

As you consider your options, you are approached by one of their kind who still wears human clothing. Unlike the rest, he is able to communicate with you perfectly. With an air of authority and wisdom about him, he demands to know why you have come to this place.

Forced – After you discover 1 or more clues at Sea of Bones: Flip it over.
Traversing this canyon of cadavers and monstrous remains is laborious enough, but it is the churning and digging below the surface that causes you to hate this awful place. What sort of monstrosity could span the entirety of this ocean of bones? Your answer presents itself as you come across a great pit in the ravine. It is swallowing the bones and scraps of rotten meat like a whirlpool. When you reach the base of the tunnel and realize its true purpose, a shudder courses through you. It was made by an enormous creature: the thing that dwells below the sea of bones.
If there is no Dhole Tunnel at this location, search the encounter deck and discard pile for a Dhole Tunnel and attach it to this location, if able. Shuffle the encounter deck.
If Slithering Dhole is in play, move it to this location and add 2 clues to it. Otherwise, search the encounter deck, discard pile, and victory display for Slithering Dhole, and spawn it at this location, exhausted and with 2 clues on it.

The spiders surround your vessel and attempt to pull it—and you—into the depths.
