Mystery Text

When this card enters play, place a number of Eldritch tokens equal to half NoInvestigators each on a random space.

As an encounter, an investigator on a space containing an Eldritch token may attempt to discover the meaning behind the strange events (Observation - 1). If the passes, he may spend 2 Clues to place that Eldritch token on this card. If he fails, a Cultist Monster ambushes him!

At the end of the Mythos Phase, if there are Eldritch tokens on this card equal to half NoInvestigators, solve this Mystery.
