Tasks are a type of asset that can be acquired in Eldritch Horror.
Tasks differ from other assets in the sense that they require a certain action to be accomplished in order to complete them and gain their benefit. This requirement can be as simple as moving to a certain location, or may be conditional, such as resolving a test while using a Rest action or casting a Spell.
Some tasks are simple, have only one action, and provide their benefit once completed. These tasks are normal assets, and can be obtained through Acquire Assets.
Zoey Samaras may spend an action to gain a task if she has less than two.
|Patrolling the Streets||03||1||Defeat 3+ toughness monster to retreat doom|
|Genealogy Research||03||1||Defeat 2+ toughness monster and test for 2 clues|
|Mineralogy Research||03||1||Wilderness encounter and test for 2 clues|
|Newspaper Report||03||1||Spend clue from research encounter to retreat doom|
|Seek the Truth||07||1||Research encounter and spend 3 clues to advance mystery|
|Specialized Training||04||1||Focus and test to improve skill|
|Investment||03||1||Gain funding on reckoning|
Task Unique Assets
Task unique assets are flipped when completed. They have multiple versions; an investigator does not know what their reward will be until they complete the task.
Many of these tasks give the option of completing them multiple times before flipping, usually stacking tokens on the card. When the investigator flips the card the reward may be higher. Tasks with many tokens can have extremely powerful effects, such as blessing every investigator, closing multiple gates, or completing mysteries.
Zoey Samaras can spend an action to gain a Task Unique Asset if she currently has fewer than 2 of them.
