Thanks to any and all for taking the time printing and playing this scenario. It was a lot of fun to craft.
One small correction to the text on Agenda 3b. Game text under the italics should read:
“Place the set-aside Stygian Grotto location into play.
Move all investigators and enemies from Kingsport locations to the Stygian Grotto.
Advance to Act 4a.”
Apologies for this oversight. This tweak will be included in a final version, once I’ve collected more feedback from players.

Now updated with version 1.3, fixing some poor wording on cards.

Hi,
Congratulations Matthew for this scenario.
I’m a member of the french community “Horreur à arkham jce”, we are looking for fanmade scenarios that we could translate to increase the number of adventures available in french.
Would you allow us to translate this adventure for french-speaking players ?
Thank you in advance for your answer.

It would be great to see this scenario in French! I would be happy to send you the files/card images. You can email me directly at matthew.heiti@yahoo.ca and let me know if you’d like individual card images or the Strange Eons files.

hey matthew! finally got this printed up and was just laying it out. two questions: 1 — do you have a suggested layout for it? i can’t seem to figure out a layout i’m super happy with. the streets all connect to Orange Point but only Ship Street connects to Green Lane (but Green Lane connects back to all the streets, i think). if you have a suggested layout, that would be awesome! 2 — i printed the previous version so don’t have you latest updates — anything major i should be looking out for? anyway, thanks for the hard… Read more »

Will! Thank you so much for taking the time to print this out, and apologies for the errors in the earlier version you’ve printed. I can point you to the BGG thread where I post a photo of a suggested layout and detail what’s changed from earlier versions – they’re all small text corrections that you should be able to ‘roll’ with as you play: https://boardgamegeek.com/article/27888556#27888556 But, in brief: 1. Suggested layout would place the Kingsport locations stacked, as a “Christmas tree”: Green Lane as the base, the 3 squares above this (Ship Street at centre), then the 2 triangles,… Read more »

Hello Matthew,

first of all, great scenario!

Any chance you can upload the card images as well?

I’d love to translate this into Italian, and I need the images to recreate every card… can you help me?

Thanks in advance! 🙂

Hi Alessio! That sounds great – I’d love to see this get an Italian translation! What exactly do you need to make this happen? I used Strange Eons to create the scenario – if you do the same, I could send you the work files and you could make the changes directly into the app. You can email me directly at matthew.heiti@yahoo.ca

Hello Matthew,

thank you so much for the quick reply!

Yes, I use Strange Eons as well: it would be great if you could send me the work files via WeTransfer, Google Drive or whichever means you prefer 🙂

Also, thank you very much for your e-mail address! Here’s mine: panno851@gmail.com

For the record, I’ve also translated another scenario called The Grand Oak Hotel!

I still need to get used to Arkham Horror’s writing style, but I think (or better, I hope) I’m getting the hang of it! 😀

Thanks again!

Ciao Alessio. Leggo che hai tradotto lo scenario del Grand Oak Hotel. Dove posso trovare i link per il download? Io ho tradotto gli scenari “the collector” e “the curse of amulotep”. Ho inviato i file all’admin così li può caricare sul sito. Sarei contento di poter collaborare con te nella traduzione di altri scenari, così da dividere il carico di lavoro.

Ciao Andrea, grazie per il tuo messaggio!
Eccoti il link per scaricare lo scenario da me tradotto:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1IafZxl2KDwG6iX1NunVNiJRMGBzfHGqq

All’interno del pacchetto trovi anche una mia dichiarazione che ti autorizza a farne qualunque uso purché non commerciale (facendo il traduttore di lavoro, mi sono dovuto tutelare…).

A me piacerebbe tradurre lo scenario “Bread and Circuses” ma a quanto pare l’autore ha usato Photoshop, per cui non so come recuperare le immagini delle singole carte…
In ogni caso, se ti va di collaborare fammi sapere a quali scenari ti piacerebbe lavorare!

Per quanto riguarda il lavoro di editing a livello di immagini non ti preoccupare, ci posso pensare anche io. Le traduzioni che ho fatto dei due scenari le ho fatte con Gimp. Ancora non sapevo dell’esistenza dell’utilissimo StrangeEons! Il grosso del lavoro per me è tradurre dall’inglese, non in quanto non lo sappia ma più che altro perché utilizzano quasi sempre (giustamente) terminologie molto particolari e devo continuamente ricorrere a dei traduttori. Poi tu, facendolo di lavoro, sarai sicuramente più veloce e fluente di me. Quindi se pensi a tradurre il testo delle carte, al layout delle stesse posso pensare… Read more »

Thanks for this wonderful scenario of one of my favorite HP Lovecraft stories. However I need some help.

*Spoiler*

Act 2b reads: “If the investigators haven’t found a seal ring, return to Act 4a”.
Does it really mean “Act 4a” or is this a mistake? I guess it’s “2a” or rather “1a”, right?

Thanks!

Hi Manuel – thank you for the kind words and for taking the time to print and play this scenario!

I’m sorry for that misprint. Yes, you are correct, it should read “…return to Act 2a.” This error should be corrected in the latest version of the file available here. If you’re working with an older version, you will be fine, but there are just some minor quibbles with wording, which I think I address fully here: https://boardgamegeek.com/article/27888556#27888556

Let me know if you have any other questions! Let me know how the experience went!

Printed off your scenario and failed miserably!! Really enjoyed it though and looking forward to giving it another go.
It has inspired me to make my own scenario…quick question: how did you create your “front page” card? I cant find a template on Eons, and yours looks great…

Matthew
Guest

Hi Billy – Thanks for giving it a try! Hope it works out better for you on the next go, and do let me know if there is anything that doesn’t jive.
For the cover page card, I used the “Labyrinths of Lunacy” scenario pack cover and just altered it to suit. Although the result isn’t perfect! If you search “Arkham Horror Scenario Cover” you should find a few options. Hope that helps!

Superb looking artwork and lay-out. Once I’m done with the Dunwich cycle, I will definately give it a try!

Stefaan – Thanks for taking a look and for the supportive words! Let me know how the play goes, when you have the time!

Hi,I hope someone here who has a little experience with print and play LCG adventures can help to streamline meh workflow. I am looking to get this adventure professionally printed at card studio. The problem I am running into is all of the images come in several .pdf files and the online design tools require me to design the cards one by one, front and back. The site, printer studio.com won’t take the .pdf’s and print them as a sheet and then cut them out for me. My question is… How can I pull individual card images apart in order… Read more »

Hi Chris!
Thanks for the interest in the scenario. I uploaded all the cards to Printer Studio for this very reason. Here’s the link to that: http://www.printerstudio.com/products/playingcard/design/dn_playingcards_front_dynamic.aspx?id=5364AD771EACC4E73DCC5628A806E4C16285B529580C9108D1BE06F26B089977BDFE5ABE1A6E3ACA&ssid=BA6CFF6CE9B741DD9913D6E89D950200
