In my experience, the "starting first" book is hard to get the later this goes on. This early snooze should maybe secure it for me unless I've overlooked something, which is possible.

I forgot to mention, but I hit my 8 gates spellbook on Blue's turn. I'll take They Break Through.

e: Also lol Corbeau has a real sophie's choice on whether he effortlessly grabs 3 gates this turn or instead eats that helpless sleepy cultist.

Speaking of spellbooks, I had forgotten to add them to the game file. Now corrected.

For reference, Opener can now summon monsters on enemy controlled or abandoned gates, and Yellow Sign can now move The King and immediately take another action (and can also move any undead in his area with him for free).

Sleeper is up.

I'm trusting that you'll correct me if I misinterpret your renaming of team orange units, and/or get my American geography messed up.

Yellow Sign now has:

Zingaya (Action: Cost 1) If Undead are in an area with enemy Acolyte Cultists, transform one such Acolyte Cultist into an Undead.

Plan accordingly.

Crawling Chaos may now continue taking actions until they end of time (or they run out of power), then it will be round end.

End of round



WW becomes new first player, and can choose a spellbook and player order direction.

Once you have chosen player order direction, each player gets the chance to do a ritual, in player order.

I'm out for 10 hours now but feel free to carry on - let me know if I got anything wrong with power totals. I'll update Doom from this doom phase when I get back.

Power totals:

Opener: 10
Windwalker: 14
Yellow Sign: 9
GOP: 10
Crawling Chaos: 11

Next up: WW to choose turn direction.

Current state of play, with everyone's doom totals.

YS and Opener to decide on ritual, then it's WW first turn after that.

WW now has

Howl (Pre-Battle):
Before Battle, if any Wendigos are present, you may force the enemy to Retreat one Unit (of their choice) out of the Area to an adjacent Area.

CC now has

The Thousand Forms (Action: Cost 0) If Nyarlathotep is in play, roll 1D6. Your foes must lose that much Power between them, they have 1 minute to decide how much each loses. If they cannot agree, you get the rolled number as Power added to your total. Flip this spellbook face-down to indicate it cannot be used again this turn. During Gather Power, flip it face up again. Reminder: For pbf, players will have max of 24 hours to decide how to resolve this, preferably less if you can come to an agreement sooner.

Oh it's my turn for actions too.

Screaming Dead to Arabia, taking my undead buddy with me, and immediately desecrate. If someone who is competent at the game can advise me on what I should summon? My idea is, since a cultist is already in Arabia (that I will probably leave behind), I get an Undead now to buff further desecrates, and only do Biyakhees later.

So let's say I summon an Undead.

YS desecrates in Arabia. Roll = 6 (Fail)

Opener: 10
Windwalker: 8
Yellow Sign: 6
GOP: 10
Crawling Chaos: 11

I'm pretty sure as YS getting your undead army out as fast as possible is the best option rather than Byakhee, but I guess it depends a bit on what you wanted to do next (i.e. if you were planning on making a gate in Arabia, maybe Byakhee would be better to stay and guard it). But I dunno, I've played them all of once and came second.
