The Dunwich Horror (herald)
The Dunwich Horror - Son of Yog-Sothoth
When the Dunwich Horror is the Herald, place one Dunwich Horror token on the Dunwich Horror track at the start of the game. You must play with the Dunwich board to use this Herald.
The Whateley Prophecy
"Let me tell ye sumthin - some day yew folks'll hear a child o' Lavinny's a-callin' its father's name on the top o' Sentinel Hill!"
- Wizard Whateley
The effects of the Whateley Prophecy are described below:
Unnatural Growth: The Dunwich Horror track starts out with one token on it at the start of the game and one additional token when the terror track reaches 3, 6, and 9. This is in addition to the normal conditions in which tokens are added to it.
Yog-Sothoth's Child: The Dunwich Horror is considered to have a circle dimensional symbol as well as a moon dimensional symbol, but only for purposes of movement. It cannot be banished or pulled through a gate because of this symbol.
Father's Name: When the Dunwich Horror moves, it adds a doom token to the Ancient One's doom track on a 3-6 instead of a 4-6. (The version included in Miskatonic Horror activates on a roll of 2–6.)
Father and Son: If Yog-Sothoth is the Ancient One, and he awakens when the Dunwich Horror is on the board, Yog-Sothoth's combat modifier increases by 3 (to -8) and he has five extra doom tokens placed on his doom track (for a total of 17).
The Dunwich Horror first appeared in the story The Dunwich Horror, written by H.P. Lovecraft (1928).
