Game Overview

In the Forsaken Lore expansion, what the investigators previously thought they understood was all an illusion. Now the Ancient Ones have grown in power and stand ready to breach into our world.

This expansion includes a new Ancient One, Yig, as well as new Mystery cards for the existing Ancient Ones, hundreds of new stories to encounter, and new Artifacts, Assets, and Spells for investigators to wield against the Ancient Ones.

Box Contents

This expansion does not introduce any new mechanics and is the only one which does not contain any new investigators. Instead, it contains a lot of content tied to the base box, enhancing replayability with Encounter cards and upgrading the existing Ancient Ones.
