Hey! This one is mine! It’s got some problems, but I had a bunch of fun making and playing it. Everyone is, of course, welcome to print and play it themselves, but if you’d like a convenient source and have an extra $20, you can find it over at :

http://www.printerstudio.com/sell/designs/custom-arkham-horror-expansion-the-grand-oak-hotel.html

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!

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.
