Act 1 – Saracenic Script

Type: Act
Encounter Set: Undimensioned and Unseen
Clue Threshold: 2󲆃
Objective – Only investigators at Whateley Ruins may spend the requisite number of clues, as a group, to advance.
If Dr. Armitage survived The Dunwich Legacy:
“There!” Armitage sighs a breath of relief, jotting down the last phrases of the formula. “I have translated the last of it.” He shudders as he hands you the script, the words conjuring forth memories of his battle with the creature. “I hope this is the last time I’ll have to read it,” he admits. “But if we do nothing, the end result will be much, much worse.”
Each investigator puts into play 1 set-aside Esoteric Formula.
If Dr. Armitage is listed under “Sacrificed to Yog-Sothoth”:
Using the information contained within the ruins of the Whateley homestead, you are able to transcribe the remainder of the formula previously used by Dr. Armitage to destroy the beast that plagued Dunwich. However, the endeavor sets you back several hours.
Each investigator puts into play 1 set-aside Esoteric Formula. Place 1 doom on the current agenda.
The monsters tearing through Dunwich county are immune to traditional weapons. Only by reciting a particular incantation can the creatures be defeated. First you must search the ruins of Wilbur Whateley’s home in order to find the final sections of the otherworldly script.

Bit of a strange development for me here but neither of the above statements on 1B are true for me...

At "Blood on the Altar" I didn´t get the clues and neither did I kill Silas Bishop, so I was instructed to proceed to the next scenario without reading the "Survivors" interlude. An interlude which would have included the phrase "Dr. Armitage survived the Dunwich legacy". However neither was Armitage sacrificed as I had saved him earlier and thus were able to keep him in my deck; he wasn´t placed among the potential sacrifices, so under "Sacrificed to Yog-Sothoth" he was actually the only story guy who wasn´t listed.

Going by logic I had to proceed as though one of the statements were true and opted for "survived" (I did have him on the table at the time). Safe to assume that this is just an oversight by the devs?

There is an errata to "Blood on the Altar" which solves this issue and has Dr. Hentry Armitage survive the Dunwich Legacy if he was not sacrificed. See the faq for more exact text.
