“Against the Wendigo is my first custom stand alone scenario for Arkham Horror TCG. I translated it to from french to english with the help of 2 awesome proofreaders, Stephen W “St Cretin” and Matt A.”bakunin888″.
This scenario is a sequel to the Call Of Cthulhu RPG add-on “Alone Against the Wendigo”, a solo adventure written by Glenn Rahman, edited by Chaosium. Several months after the outcome of the original adventure, you explore the wild Hanninah Valley in Canada’s far Northwest, looking for the missing students of Dr Nadelmann’s expedition.
It is not necessary to know the original story to play this scenario. However, be forewarned that the North Hanninah valley is a wild and dangerous territory, from which many explorers have never returned…

You only need player cards from a core game box in order to play this 71 cards scenario (+1 cover card), no need for official encounters cards.
Please note that the scenario comes with a FFG-style campaign guide for special rules, setup and resolutions, you will need it in order to play.

You can play it as a stand alone scenario, or as an additional adventure in campaign mode for 2xp per investigator. “

#16 Swamp : Card text should be “… You cannot move into the Swamp.”

#17 Site of Ancient Stones : Card text should be “… You cannot move into the Site of Ancient Stones.”

#19 Isolated Land : Card text should be “… You cannot move into the Isolated Land.”

#22 Charlie Foxtail’s Destiny, Choice #113:12 14/09/2020 : “this card” should be “Charlie Foxtail’s Destiny”

Visual experience:5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
Overall experience:5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)

Unbelievable—-What a experience we had. Very well done, the scenario locations fits perfectly to the storytelling. We will play it again. We could have done more for investigating the case but the time of play was a bit longer than we expected, 4 hours and we decided to leave the scenario, otherwise we finished it very well but we left some experience points. Many Thanks to Vinn Quest for making this possible.

Excellent scenario! Although I have to curse you for some tests and the specs of some enemies 😀 lol… I ran away to finish the scenario (1 investigator), but definitively want to replay to try to explore all the aspects. Congratulations! And please, keep making scenarii as good as this one.

is there suppose to be a 2 b agenda or not i was just wondering.

Vinn Quest
Guest
Vinn Quest

Hi ruby ! To answer your question without spoiling anything: some times there is no b side on agenda or act card in a scenario (scenario #2 of the core box for instance). If there is something else you resolve the revelation effect and just continue with the next agenda or act card. And every thing you have in my scenario is supposed to be here… Well at least what you have on b sides 😉
I hope this answer you question, else feel free to contact me, i left my mail somewhere in a previous reply. Have fun !

Played last night with four x zero experience investigators as a standalone scenario. Took 4 hours. Great use of theme and the game engine. Neat to see the card layout applied to wide open spaces, and the feel of the Canadian Rockies was good. Great story – both the setup story for the original expedition, and the story that unfolded as we played – the guides and their families, the RCMP and their response, and the terrain and weather. The mist rolling through the valley, and the fickle nature of the river were well-done. Beautiful card design – evocative art… Read more »

Hello Chris, and thanks for your cool review ! I did spend a lot of time and consideration on illustrations’ choices, i’m happy that the final result was worth it 🙂 Spoiler-free answers for your questions : 1 . Guide-traited ally don’t have an ally symbol, and so don’t take an ally slot. It’s an implicit rule i’ve noticed from official scenarios: an ally you encounter in a scenario don’t have an ally symbol, unless this ally is supposed to be added in your deck at the end of the scenario, being playable in the next scenarios of a campaign,… Read more »

This was an incredible scenario, super fun to play. I enjoyed trying to navigate the river while running from the wendigo. Along those same lines, working my way through the different areas was a blast.
Thanks for a well designed scenario.

Hi everyone! In the last few months I’ve been working on the italian version of this scenario (Vinn was incredibly nice and helpful) and it will be available soon! Stay tuned 😀

I finally got round to making the scenario available on PrinterStudio! Here it is:
https://www.printerstudio.com/sell/designs/against-the-wendigo-ahlcg.html
Should be $21 plus postage costs.

Having now, finally (after a year break from board games) printed and played through it, I can say that the game design and the print quality are both excellent! Highly recommended epic journey through the Canadian north. I might be biased because I proofread, but it does seem really good.

Ithaqua fhtagn!

I played this scenario this morning and it’s very cool. It’s ambitious and looks great. My one criticism would be to make the movement and location connections more clear, as this felt massively confusing until we stumbled and bumbled our way to the end of the scenario. If I understand the rules correctly, I’d say to work in the following clarifications. 1. The river seems like you can only move along it via the actions on the cards. It doesn’t function like other location cards. The movement actions on the River cards are the only way to move from one… Read more »

Hi, Justin, thanks for the comment !
I’ll take this in consideration for the next version of the scenario that i’m planning to do this summer. Espacialy the location reveal mecanism, i’ll probably fix it the way you propose.

This scenario is awesome, well written and a blast to play. My only complaint is that the encounters that attached to locations or just increased difficulty for the following round were a bit too plentiful and cleared easily. This got in the way of seeing some of the more unique interactions like deer/skinwalker etc. I think why I play again I will remove 1 of each of those encounter cards and change the clear condition on the attach cards to clear on an elder sign through 0 rather than ‘not a symbol’.

Hi Author, I noticed you have got this scenario available to print at printerstudio.com. I wanted to ask please if it isn’t too difficult, is there a way to add it to printerstudio.co.uk also? I emailed their customer service to ask if I could order your scenario thru the UK site, but apparently user-made content can’t be ordered across their own sister sites 🙁 If it is easy, it would be great for British/Euro fans to save a fortune on shipping/import charges! Many thanks.

Hi, and sorry for the late reply.
Some one else put the scenario on printerstudio, sorry i can’t help you on that…
I order my copies on Makeplayingcards.com, the import charges are inexistant if you order with standard shipping, not with UPS.
Cheers !

The Charlie Foxtail choice #1 reads oddly… if I am reading it correctly I should remove from the game an agenda or act that advances which advances. This has an odd interaction with agenda 2b. Do I put agenda 2b into play or remove it from the game and record the natives are after me?

Thanks for the clarification

vinn_quest
Guest
vinn_quest

Hi and sorry for the late reply.
“remove that card from the game” should actually reads “remove Charlie foxtail’s destiny from the game”. I thought it was clear but your comment shows it could be easely misunderstoud. That would be for the next version of the scenario, hopefully for this summer.

We did that scenario tonight, it was very intesting! We, living in the cold Canada, it was funny to us to see the folklore references to indians and the Mounties, but that was fine. This is a scenario with very a lot going on. We definitely appreciated the multiple side-quests in it, which made the whole thing very enjoyable and full of surprises. We did manage to succeed the senario very well, and were surprised by the generosity of the rewards. That would probably be my only criticism of the scenario; we understand that it is brutal, and we could… Read more »

Hi and thank you for your comment !
I’m glad canadian people could enjoy it 🙂
During the playtest, the XP was to few for some, too much for other just like you say in your comment, it was pretty hard to balance it, knowing many failed the scenario or had to flee the hanninah valley to soon to gain enought XP. Maybe i’ll fix it in the next version of the scenario.
Cheers !

My friends and I had a really good time with this scenario when we played it two weeks ago. I would play it again. The custom investigators worked well.

Question on the Seeker’s mechanic is the intention that if you fail and draw cards off your deck to commit that you draw your weaknesses or are you meant to just reveal cards and commit the ones you can?

First, beautiful work. I just printed my copy and I’m excited to cut it out and play it. I have crafted many print and play card games, but yours was my first Arkham Central package. I don’t know if this is common on this site, but I don’t generally see print and play games where card backs and fronts are on the same page. Usually the fronts are all side by side on one sheet and the card backs are on the next page of the pdf. That way I can print double sided and use half as much paper.… Read more »

David
Guest

Home printers are usually not precise enough to print front and back on both side of the page with a perfect alignment. With the front and back on the same side you get a perfect alignment when you fold the page. Most people print on standard paper and sleeve the cards with an unused card in between to get a similar stiffness as normal cards.

Outstanding scenario, just scraped through the first play through with Ashcan Pete and the best thing is I can see there is tonnes and tonnes of depth and replay value here. Definitely worth the time to print and cut out the cards. Thanks for all the hard work to put this together!

If added into a campaign, do any of the player cards get added to the investigators’ decks post-scenario ? I just want to know if any of the cards require a higher quality print and sleeve to ensure they blend better with the official FFG cards in my collection

Hi Jeff,yes you might gain some cards a the end of the scenario, that will depend of your in-game choices and your resolution…

I printed these off in black and white and played them with a friend and had such a good time that I paid to have these printed professionally for another run-through. After receiving them from the printer, I can now add that the art which I couldn’t really see previously is also very nice!

This adventure is great, and for my money, better than the Hotel, Rougarou, and Guardians of the Abyss. I quite liked Carnavale, and would say it’s easily its equal or better. Cheers friend, in my opinion this is better than professionally crafted adventures from FFG.

Hello, i printed and played it with a friend and was an amazin experience. Im from south america and i like to know if i can get the source cards so i can translate the campaign to Spanish. I would love to share with other players this scenario but a lot of people have issues to understand certain rules in english. Thank you very much for the mechanics and the art.
