May 16th, 2017

 

In the Cities in Ruin expansion for Eldritch Horror, Shudde M’ell, the progenitor of the dreaded chthonians, tosses and turns with the cycle of its dreams. Mankind’s fragile existence is threatened as this otherwordly being comes closer to waking than ever before. Cities fall and storms rage all over the globe as Shudde M’ell thrashes beneath the planet’s surface. Can a few brave investigators scattered across the globe truly hope to stand between this horrifying monstrosity and the utter devastation that heralds its coming?

There had been so many signs. Why had none of them listened? You had tried to warn them that the prison of G’harne was failing in Africa. The media, the police, even the revered professors at Miskatonic University, all of them had treated you like some raving lunatic and thrown you out into the street. Even now, with acrid smoke and the stink of death thick in the air, no one actually looked back at the coiled horrors writhing amongst the city’s ruins. None of them wanted to believe that this level of devastation could be visited upon the world by forces so poorly understood by the minds of man.

Someone must face these horrors and try to drive them back. Someone has to try to keep Shudde M’ell from waking. No one had listened, and now you grimly march into the ruins of the city you tried to save, determined to find some clue to sealing away the ancient creature once and for all.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Cities in Ruin, a new expansion for Eldritch Horror!

You feel it just below the surface. Something gnawing at the edge of sanity, a feeling that the steady march of machines and concrete that have come to be recognized as progress in the modern world is transient. Your visions show you a desolate future, where all that remains is dust, ash, and those who have long slumbered.

Violent earthquakes contort cities to unrecognizable ruin, unrelenting typhoons eradicate coastlines, and deep below the Earth something ancient stirs. Shudde M’ell, The Cataclysm from Below, approaches with destruction and ruin as his heralds.

Cities in Ruin sees four new investigators face the brink of madness to battle Ancient Ones, and introduces a slew of new monster and encounter cards to the world of Eldritch Horror. And what’s more, new Ancient One Shudde M’ell’s presence brings a destructive twist to the game in the form of the Disaster deck.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce The Dreamlands, a new expansion for Eldritch Horror!

It has been months since you saw the sunset city in a dream—towering minarets and domes, crossed by shadow and red light from the gently setting orb of fire that permanently rests outside the city. Since then, you’ve crossed these borders every night, searching for the city, hoping to set foot inside. You have seen wonders beyond compare: the sacred cats of Ulthar and the turquoise and tourmaline city of Celephaïs that rests beneath the gingko-covered slopes of Mount Aran. You have all but abandoned your waking life, eating less and less, spending more and more time asleep. But tonight is different. There, on the silvery, blade-thin horizon between wakefulness and sleep, the black ships from the moon have finally caught up to you.

Descend into a world of sleep and splendor with The Dreamlands, the latest expansion for Eldritch Horror. For the first time, you have the chance to walk upon the sweet-smelling grass of the Enchanted Wood, travel into the Underworld, or sail off the edge of the world and voyage to the moon—this expansion introduces an entirely new side board, portraying the mystical, ethereal Dreamlands. As the realm of dreams leaks into our waking world, you’ll find eight new investigators that stand united against two insidious Ancient Ones: Altach-Nacha the Dreamweaver and Hypnos, the Lord of Sleep. With a massive array of new Spells, Conditions, Assets, Adventures, Mythos cards, and encounters for every location, The Dreamlands promises adventures unmatched by anything in the waking world.

Signs of Carcosa available now for Eldritch Horror

June 6th, 2016

Fantasy Flight Games have released Signs of Carcosa, an expansion for Eldritch Horror.

The streets of San Francisco are doused in rain, driving reasonable men and women indoors. You and your companions could never be described as reasonable. You walk with purpose, each of you carrying the tools of your trade. For the urchin girl, a thick and tattered leather-bound tome. For the Irish gangster, a well-used Thompson, shielded from the downpour by his long coat. For yourself, Dexter Drake, a silver-shod walking cane that could almost be mistaken for a staff. On the docks, you pause. The girl kneels, sketches a few lines in midair, and the air tears itself open—gazing through the dimensions, you see spiraling, alien towers, feel the heat of twin suns rising, taste the air of another world: Lost Carcosa.

Venture into the worlds beyond our own, and take your stand against the tides of madness. Signs of Carcosa is now available for Eldritch Horror.

Under the Pyramids, an expansion for Eldritch Horror  that’s now available from Fantasy Flight Games, opens up six new locations throughout Egypt for you to explore. Your adventures are not, however, limited to the timeworn temples and tombs of Egypt. Deep in the wilderness dwell the grotesque and malicious children of a creature far elder than the Dark Pharaoh: Abhoth, the chaotic source of all uncleanliness on Earth.

Our previews have so far delved into the mysteries of the Dark Pharaoh, visited the six locations of the expansion’s Egypt side board, and introduced some of the investigators who are now joining the struggle against the Ancient Ones. Today’s article lays the groundwork for your investigation of Abhoth, and your battle to keep this horrid, protean behemoth from awakening

November 20th, 2015

Fantasy Flight Games has announced a new expansion for Eldritch Horror.

Under the Pyramids, immerses you in the deathless mysteries of a land preoccupied with the dead. However, to explore alone is to risk drowning in the sands or falling victim to countless monsters. In today’s preview you’ll meet four of the expansion’s eight new investigators. All of them are fearless and determined individuals, but when working together their abilities are profoundly better.

In the far outskirts of Cairo, south of Giza but north of the temple complex at Memphis, lies a misshapen monument to evil: the Bent Pyramid, where the Dark Pharaoh has rested for millennia. Now, the Dark Pharaoh has begun to stir as thousands of Cultists engineer his return, and the Bent Pyramid is sending out an irresistible summons to all occultists and scholars of arcane arts, pulling them towards the Nile.

FFG release Strange Remnants expansion for Eldritch Horror

Strange-Remnants

May 7th, 2015

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Strange Remnants, an expansion for the Lovecraftian board game Eldritch Horror.

Throughout the world lie the ancient ruins of massive stone monuments built by lost civilizations, ruins which conceal the dark secrets necessary to save the planet from a terrible fate. In Strange Remnants, you and your fellow investigators must travel to these uncanny landmarks and piece together their uncanny mysteries before time runs out and the entire Earth is devoured. The Ancient One at the heart of Strange Remnants is no monster from another dimension or creature from the deep. In this expansion, your enemy is the Syzygy, a deadly alignment of the planets. In other words, you must fight the universe itself. You’ll learn more about this Ancient One in a future preview.

Ancient Ruins and Imminent Doom

Long ago, numerous prophets and priests foresaw that someday the Sun, Earth, and Moon would align with the center of the universe, and a terrible portal would open leading to the court of an all-consuming dark god. To prevent the future end of mankind, these prophets and priests commanded towering temples and statues to be built, gargantuan feats of early engineering that would safegaurd the keys to humanity’s salvation. This cosmic alignment is now fast approaching. Only by visiting these ruined monuments and confronting the horrors that dwell within their moss-covered stones can you save the Earth from imminent doom.

Strange Remnants enables you to explore the prehistoric Mayan temples of Chichen Itza, the winding Great Wall of China, fog-shrouded Stonehenge, and the stern Moai Statues of Easter Island. The new Mystic Ruins Encounter deck brings each of these four locations to life through encounters that might alter time and space for your benefit or curse you with debilitating Conditions. Beyond these four sites of arcane importance, your determined struggle against a new Ancient One will lead you to sites of arcane power throughout the world. New Location and research encounters connect you with ancient ruins and artifacts in places from Egypt and Argentina to San Francisco and Arkham.

One way to stave off doom is to strengthen the world’s unseen shield through Fortifying the Barrier Special Encounters. Of course, these encounters entail countless risks. You may, for example, accidentally enrage the capricious spirits that inhabit the ancient ruins where you need to perform a ritual. If you cannot preclude that dark portal in the universe’s center from opening, there is a chance you may still be able to seal the portal and rescue the human race. Sealing the Portal Special Encounters take you through the portal of doom, to an unknown and evil realm where you could be asked to defend humandkind in a cruel trial . Whatever your journey, whatever rituals you undertake, whatever clues you find, the fate of humanity lies in your hands.
