The Yellow Sign

The blasphemous play "The King in Yellow" is being performed in Arkham. Every time the terror level increases, the investigators must do one of the following:

A: Place a yellow sign token in the space just vacated by the terror marker.


B. Place a yellow sign token on the doom track as if it were a doom token.

Yellow Sign Tokens

The effects of yellow sign tokens vary based on where they are placed, and are described below:

Terror track: Each time the investigators place a yellow sign token on the terror track, the first player draws a random card from the Blight deck and places it into play.

Doom track: Yellow sign tokens placed on the doom track are treated exactly like doom tokens.
