Arkham Horror

Postby ropable » April 12th, 2012, 1:30 pm

This is the PBF thread for a game of Arkham Horror (no expansions).

Players:
  • ropable (confirmed, player 1)
  • HDread
  • monsterfurby

Looking for a fourth, if anyone's interested.

Guidelines: This game has been initiated by a number of players new to Vassal, thus will be a reasonably relaxed affair :wink: We're playing for fun. Courtesy will be shown by all.

Initial game log to follow.

I've attached a save game, with myself set up as player 1. Allow me to introduce myself: I am Vincent Lee, a physician and investigator of the paranormal. I am lightly armed with a derringer pistol, and possess a map of Arkham and several spells.

We have drawn Yig as our Ancient One opponent, who appears to be some type of lizard god. His worshipers all have a poisonous bite, apparently!

Note: whoever sets up as players 2 & 3 should load this game and re-load it with their investigator added. You can draw your own investigator by choice or randomly as you wish. Because we don't actually have a GM, "random" equipment can actually be chosen from the decks.

We don't need to start logging until the beginning of turn 1, I believe.

Reporting in!
If that is alright with everybody else, I will take Mandy Thompson, researcher at Miskatonic. I'll upload the savegame with my character asap.

Correction: likely also the fastest researcher at Miskatonic, thanks to her starting equipment

By all means, a fourth would be quite welcome. Grab the saved game above, pick an investigator and their gear, then re-upload the game save. If you've played AH horror before that will be a big help; I personally have one count 'em one solo game!

NOTE: it seems that you can't edit your old forum posts after a certain length of time. Reproducing the list from above:
Players:
  • ropable (confirmed, player 1)
  • HDread
  • monsterfurby (confirmed, player 2)
  • Adder007USA

Played extensively in RL. Just asking, what's the character choice method, random or our pick?

Just choose one. Random equipment should still be random though.

Tried loading a game file and my vassal didn't like it. Which mods do I need to have?

Sorry, should have said in the first post. We're using the base game module (1.7.1) and the base game decks (1.6.9). Also, to get the game board to show up I had to replace the underscores in the base game vmod file name with spaces before loading it (i.e. renamed it to Arkham Horror FFG.vmod‎).

I'm sure that we can :) Note my other reply to Adder007 re the modules - base game module plus the base decks extension. Grab the save, choose an investigator/equipment and re-upload.

I'd like to be Bob Jenkins. I'm also having issues getting this to work. I've downloaded both the base deck and the module, but I can't seem to get the decks into the game.
