Hey! This one is mine!
Its been updated 6th of september 2019.
If anyone does actually play it, I’d love feedback and criticism, and I’m happy to answer any questions if I screwed up the wording on anything.

Should probably just have made this a reply in the first place, but I was in a hurry. Whoops. Anyway, I was wondering was the encounter deck construction for this scenario was supposed to be? How many copies of each card and the like? The lack of an encounter deck setup instruction, even if it were just to say “play 1 of everything, dummy” is a bit of a speed bump for me at the moment.

Am really enjoying this so far. I have a question: does agenda 4a effectively block Act 3a from being advanceable?

Holy shit, I didn’t even notice that. It totally does. It actually shouldn’t, because that makes for a weird bottleneck of gameplay. Pretend it doesn’t do that!

Hi Argus,
I´m a member of Los Archivos de Arkham a spanish podcast about the game.
We want to translate your scennario and print it for our patreon backers. Do you have any problem with that?
Did you prepare it with StrangeAeons?

Thanks in advice,

Hello! Could it be possible to prepare the adventure as a PDF file with all the pages and the cards with their correct size?
Thank you

I enjoyed this one. The story was very cool and immersive and some of the mechanics were interesting. I ran into an issue with the elevator mechanic. There are several ways you can break it(for example, using astral travel from one floor to another, or if someone uses the elevator to another floor and dies there) , so it may help to add an action to some locations where you could move the elevator to your floor. The weapon situation can end your game very early as well. I’m not sure this was needed. The reward at the end is… Read more »

As I told Vase, the elevator is not easy (if even possible) to break as people can use it from any floor to call the elevator.

Also, the scenario allows for an initial unique situation for weapons and allows for full weapon use later.

Still prob my favorite fan made scenario and I have played a lot of them.

What chaos bag set up do people use for this one in stand alone? As far as I can tell, there isn’t one suggested in set up

You can use the standard bag rules from the core set. At least, that’s what I do =)

well written and scary. Some minor points:

Grand oak hotel

Act 1b concedes to you – it is to concede something to someone, plz remove the “.” after you, replace with “with” {quote}

Act 2a, 1 space too much between few and locked.

Act 4a, grey metal doors do not sit.

Agenda 2a unexpected should be on prev line.

Boiler Room: IF -> If

Manager’s office back, missing dot after Office.

The last version is broken: the cards Becoming nobody and others are missing, and all cards refer to Nobody, so without it the set is unplayable.
Thank god I still have the old set.

sure, but only the pdf. I convert everything to pdf because that is what office printers do best. Let me know if below link works out for you.

fronts-01-16 is the one you are looking for if you want to play with v2. It has the becoming nobody cards (and the correct frequencies).

Hi, I am a big fan of your campaign from South Korea.
Today AH lcg Korean Ver. was released but only the Core box.
Therefore I want to translate your scenario and post at Korean community so that many people could play more scenarios.
Do you mind if I translate and post your AH lcg scenario?

printerstudio, not artscow. I’m sure you can find them.

Well… since the creator can’t be bothered to fix this, I just mix the old and new cards, more variation is best i guess.

Help! Is the version on printerstudio out of date? Should I print the most recent zip attached here instead? The comments say there are issues with the latest version so I’m not sure what to do

Hi Author, I love the look of this scenario and wanted to ask something please. You uploaded it to printerstudio.com, but I wondered please if you could do the same with printerstudio.co.uk! The UK site doesn’t share user-made items with the .com site, and it would cost so much to print, ship and import from overseas. Is it an easy thing to do? If it isn’t, please don’t worry, I only ask if it’s something straightforward. Many thanks 🙂
