Sheet info

Combat rating: -6

Defenses: None

Worshippers: Ghatanothoa is worshipped by certain ancient reptiles and fungi from Yuggoth. Lloigor and Mi-Go gain +2 toughness.

Power: Annihilating Gaze - While Ghatanothoa stirs in his slumber, place the eight visage tokens facedown on this sheet. Each time an investigator gains 2 or more Clue tokens at once, he must turn a visage token faceup. If it has Ghatanothoa's face on it, he is devoured. If not, leave the token faceup. Once four visage tokens are faceup, turn them facedown and shuffle the visage tokens.

Attack: Each investigator must spend 1 movement point or be devoured. This increases by 1 point in each successive round (e.g. 2 points in round 2, 3 in round three, etc.).

Each investigator's attack against Ghatanothoa deals one less success than normal.
