We shall see that at which dogs howl in the dark, and that at which cats prick up their ears after midnight.
–H.P. Lovecraft, “From Beyond”
It is 1926, and the museum’s exotic curios
and occult artifacts open barriers between our world and the elder evils
lurking between dimensions. Other Worlds begin to leak through and
terrifying creatures of increasing strength steal through them. Animals,
the mad, and those of susceptible minds are driven to desperation by
the supernatural forces that the portals unleash. In the midst of this
chaos, a handful of investigators race against time to locate the
eldritch symbols necessary to seal the portals forever and stop evil
Ancient Ones from reducing humanity to cinders.
Elder Sign is a fast-paced,
cooperative dice game of supernatural intrigue for one to eight players
by Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson, the designers of Arkham Horror.
Players take the roles of investigators racing against time to stave
off the imminent return of the Ancient Ones. Armed with cards for tools,
allies, and occult knowledge, investigators must put their sanity and
stamina to the test as they adventure to locate Elder Signs, the
eldritch symbols used to seal away the Ancient Ones and win the game.
