The Pallid Mask, the fourth Mythos Pack in The Path to Carcosa cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game, is on sale now from Fantasy Flight Games!
Your search for answers following the fateful performance of The King in Yellow has taken you across the sea to Paris, where you encountered a stranger whom you suspect is somehow connected to the mystery. Now, you must descend into Paris’s labyrinthine catacombs if you hope to uncover the truth and bring an end to the strange happenings that followed the cursed play wherever it is performed.
From the streets of Paris to the city’s subterranean catacombs, your pursuit of the truth behind The King in Yellowl eads you farther and farther from Arkham’s familiar landmarks. But the streets, the language, and the eerie, dark tunnels aren’t the only foreign elements at play. There’s something distinctly otherworldly in the Parisian catacombs…
In The Pallid Mask scenario, you and your fellow investigators will enter these tunnels in search of a stranger whom you believe must be connected to the events surrounding the performance of The King in Yellow at the Ward Theatre in Arkham. But with each new strange twist and turn, you’ll find yourselves only stepping deeper into mystery. Perhaps you can follow the tunnels all the way to the pulsing heart of the play’s mysteries, but there’s a chance, too, you’ll simply find yourselves lost amid the shifting landscape. What begins as a trek through moist and clammy tunnels of stone may become a journey that leads you under the earth, through The Gate to Hell, and straight to your demise at the Well of Souls or some other forgotten chamber.
