“Then came the devastating stroke of lightning which shook the whole mountain, lit the darkest crypts of the hoary grove, and splintered the patriarch of the twisted trees. […] That I am alive and stills sane, is a marvel I cannot fathom. I cannot fathom it, for the shadow on that chimney was […] a blasphemous abnormality from hell’s nethermost craters; a nameless, shapeless abomination which no mind could fully grasp and no pen even partly describe.”
– H.P. Lovecraft, The Lurking Fear
You feel it just below the surface. Something gnawing at the edges of society, an ancient being that could so easily erase the steady march of machines and concrete that have come to be recognized as progress in the modern world. Your visions show you a desolate future, where all that remains is dust, ash, and those who have long-slumbered. The world trembles as Shudde M’ell strains against his bonds beneath Africa. Can you uncover the secrets of his prison even as it crumbles around the investigators? How many cities will fall before the Cataclysm from Below is calmed? Is all hope lost if Shudde M’ell wakes?
Violent earthquakes contort cities to unrecognizable ruin, torrential typhoons eradicate coastlines, and deep below the the Earth, something ancient stirs. Cities all over the world are left as smoldering or soggy shells of what they once were, but there are still secrets to be learned and there are victims that need help.
When a city is devastated, a Devastation token is placed over the location, and it is no longer considered a city space. All of the Clues, Expedition Encounters, and defeated investigators that were in that place are wiped from the map.
Any investigators picking their way through the destruction can choose to resolve a Devastation Encounter instead. Obviously these locations have been hotbeds of recent activity related to the Ancient One, and there are opportunities to help survivors or to explore clues that Shudde M’ell’s touch have left behind.
Shudde M’ell, The Cataclysm from Below, approaches with destruction and ruin as his heralds.
Cities in Ruin brings four new investigators, and a slew of new monster and encounter cards to the world of Eldritch Horror. New Ancient One Shudde M’ell’s presence brings a destructive twist to the game in the form of deadly disasters.
