Another small wave breaks over the bow of The Ultima Thule as the beleaguered investigators gaze at the seemingly innocuous shores of another uncharted island. Silence reigns and tensions rise as the investigators row a much smaller craft towards the sandy beach and away from the relative safety of their ship. Maybe this time, everyone in the boat would return sane… or at least alive.

In Elder Sign: Omens of the Deep, a team of investigators aboard The Ultima Thule will need to think carefully about how they approach their search for the sunken city of R’lyeh. In this preview, we’ll take a closer look at how the first stage of the R’lyeh Rising mode allows the investigators to explore the Pacific Ocean while they gather items, spells, allies, and skills. We’ll also explore the ways that this intrepid team of investigators may make their way to the location of the lost city in the newest expansion for Elder Sign.

The new R’lyeh Rising mode of gameplay features two stages as you first navigate the Dark Waters track and then assemble the Amulet of R’lyeh to stop one of three dangerous new Ancient Ones from waking and devouring the world. Engage the newly introduced mission tokens for hard-won rewards and fend off the dogged Deep One Legion as your investigators move to unknown dangers on the Pacific Adventure cards. The depths of the Pacific are filled with fresh terrors that only the bravest can attempt to seal with the power of the Elder Signs in the Omens of the Deep expansion for Elder Sign!
