Dimensional symbol

Dimensional Symbols are green icons that indicate the home plane of monsters. They are used to perform monster movement and other tasks.

The movement boxes on a Mythos card contain one or more dimensional symbols, as do the movement side of monster markers. When a Mythos card is resolved, every monster with a dimensional symbol listed in the movement box moves in that direction. Additionally, when a gate is closed by an investigator, all monsters in Arkham, the Sky, and the Outskirts that have a dimensional symbol matching the closed gate are removed from the board and returned to the monster cup.
