Flavor Text

It wasn't an invasion. The elder things were fleeing the wrath of a Dark God they had once controlled.


Place the Mystery token on City of the Elder Things and place 5 Eldritch Tokens on this sheet.

Mystery Conditions

As an encounter, if 4 Mysteries have been solved, an investigator on City of the Elder Things may confront the Dark God beyond the mountains; he draws and resolves A Dark God Special Encounter.

When there are Clues on this sheet equal to half NoInvestigators, the Final Mystery is solved and investigators win the game.

Game Effects

  • After an investigator resolves an Other World Encounter, he may move to Plateau of Leng.
  • Each time Doom would advance, discard 1 Eldritch token from the sheet instead. Then, if there are no Eldritch tokens on this sheet, investigators lose the game.
