Arkham Horror Advanced Players League
Hi everybody!
I started uploading on the BGG the "Arkham Horror Fan League": a series of 24 Scenarios intended for people who have all the sets from Arkham Horror to Innsmouth (Arkham Horror, Curse of the Dark Pharoah, Dunwich Horror, The King in Yellow, Kingsport Horror, Black Goat of the Woods, and Innsmouth Horror). It's intended for advanced gamers who have already mastered the basics of the game, and it implements a lot of creations created by fans during the last few years.
The League was created by Avi_Dreader a couple of years ago; the idea is offering to our friends over the BGG the whole experience. Which means posting all the scenarios, all the rules, all the custom heralds and ancient ones, so that you can simply follow this thread and downloading all the material with ease.
At the moment, I'll upload the first segment (Scenarios 1-5) and the AOs and the Heralds. You can see the uploaded material at: http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/86635/arkham-horror-fan-le...
(not so sure on how to insert hyperlinks on this post)
If you have any questions about rules, please, write them here, and I'll cover your questions as soon as possible. In the same way, feel free to post comments or reports of your games.
Finally, a special thank-you to Hugues Joneaux, our ultimate proofreader, that arrived offering help when both Avi and I were exhausted after years of continuous editing.
And, if you like this League, please gently thumb this up so that remains visible for a long time :-)
Happy gaming to you all

JULIA

UPDATE: I'm upping now all the Heralds & AOs to be used for the whole League, plus the definitive (or at least I hope so :-)) version of all the Scenarios up to 16. I finished upping the material for the League. All AOs, Heralds and Scenarios (but 24, to be upped in a really short time, I hope) are on the Geek. Most of them were already approved by the Adm, so that now you have quite a lot of stuff available for download. As soon as Hugues comments after proofreading Scenario 24, I'll post the last one. We're close to have everything hosted here, I hope :-)

LAST UPDATE AND FINAL NOTES: Now the League is entirely hosted on the Geek. There is only one file missing, a pdf with the narration of the events interesting the League, but it's just the background story, so, it's not strictly needed to enjoy the Scenarios. I'll send Avi the first draft tonight, and post it asap. All other components are now available for download.

Specifics: in order to have high quality images hosted here, I had to recreate two heralds (Dr. Herbert West and The Crawling Chaos). I wasn't able to find the original art, so apologies to the original creators, but I had to use a different image.

Finally: Thank you to all contributors to the Fan Creation League [Admiral142, Amikezor, Avi, Dark Jco, Indio, Rovdjuret, Tiborvadovan, Veet], and to all you hardcore Arkham horror fans capable of facing the final challenge without fleeing from it in gibbering insanity.

Last notes: if any of you'd like to keep scores of the Scenarios, geek mail me the results, and I'll try to run a google doc sheet showing the progress of each team. There is no max time for completing all the Scenarios, and everyone who will beat Scenario 24 is considered to have won the League.

In the end: if any of you is interested in playing the League in a hard version (Avi started designing the Scenarios for this), let us know so that we can post here the rules for the "hard mode"

Ok, I finished uploading all the Ancient Ones & Heralds and rules for Scenarios 1-5. We need to have the final approval of the administrators, so a little more patience and we can start :-)
In the meantime, I'll try to finish the last editing of Scenarios 6-12 tomorrow and upload them in the week-end

Julia,

You're tempting me with this! laugh

Okay, maybe after I play the last few games in which I'm going through all of the Investigators and all of the Great Old Ones with the base board + CotDP (both versions) + DH + KH + KiY + KH + BGotW + LatT + MH, I'll try the Scenarios...

Cheers,
Joe

Really nice stuff indeed! When all the files are up, I will definitely give it a shot. Scenarios for my favourite Solo Board Game are always welcome.

@Joe: ::laughter:: and how far you are from finishing your complete rotation of everything? Anyway... these Scenarios can be a greater headache, but some of them are really, really fun to play, I hope you'll enjoy your ride :-)

Thanks you my friend! I hope we'll have everything up pretty soon (all the scenarios are done apart from some details - a couple of lines here and there with the last clarifications - so it's more the technical time for having everything approved by the Adms rather than anything else) and that you'll have a lot of fun playing :-)

Good to hear! I'll try to work a little on the remaining Scenarios today, so that I can post some more later

Is this the one starting in South Church with Sister Mary and Yorrick? And with a vampire + one more as Ancient Ones? Just trying to figure out if I played this before. Either way, I'm exited to play it (again). Thanks for making it available.

Yes Johan, the one you're referring to is the first Scenario of the first segment of the League.
Have you tried all the Scenarios, or just this first one?
Anyway, it's a pleasure posting them on the BGG as well :-)

I played two scenarios and lost them both. Hard! But back then I was a bit of a noob. And I played them solo.
Now, with 100+ games behind me and at least one strong co-player at the gaming table, I should be able to kick and scream at the ao's. Hopefully they feel sorry for me and leave me alone whistle

::laughter:: that's the spirit!
In any case, both if you need to debate your strategy, have further questions on the Scenarios or simply would like to share your games, we'd love to read your comments :-)

Yeah, these weren't really designed for new players ;'D

Good luck!

Oh, I stop by every year or so ;'D Thanks. Hi. Hope you're doing well and that your dies are always rolling sixes (naaaaah, deathlessness wouldn't be fun, you might as well play Patrice).

Happy gaming, friends
