Title: Eldritch Knowledge

Created by: Augustin-Louis Cauchy

Tragedy Set: Cosmic Mythology

Difficulty: 7/10

Description: I tried writing a Cosmic Mythology script. You can find the relevant info for Plots, Sub-Plots, Roles, and Incidents in the Cosmic Evil Player's Handbook on Board Game Geek's Cosmic Evil page as of my writing this script, and I haven't used any of the new characters so it should all be playable with the base game materials. Note the changes to the Informer's ability as given in the Cosmic Mythology Summary Sheet, which you can also find on Board Game Geek's Cosmic Evil page.

Main Plot: The Sacred Words of Dagon

Subplot 1: An Unsettling Rumor

Subplot 2: The Faceless God

Number of Loops: 4

Days per Loop: 5

Hints for Mastermind:
If/when the protagonists get to 3 on the Extra Gauge, try to kill of the Deep One to finish them off, or the Faceless/Deep One Goodwill Refusal? You can effectively decide whether or not Mass Suicide does anything by placing or not placing Intrigue on the Girl Student with the Girl Student on Day 5. Be careful of the Shrine Maiden's ability to remove Intrigue from the Shrine. Don't forget the Unsettling Rumor ability!

Victory Conditions for Mastermind:
At least as much Intrigue on Shrine as the Extra Gauge shows (end of loop); Key Person dies (immediate); Wizard dies (end of loop); Protagonists die from Extra Gauge being at 4 (end of day); Loop loss from Extra Gauge Being at 4 (start of loop)

Special Rule:

Day Incident Culprit
Day 2 Increasing Unease Boy Student
Day 3 Evil Contamination Alien
Day 4 Insane Murder Informer
Day 5 Mass Suicide Girl Student
Cast Role
Shrine Maiden Key Person
Alien Cultist
Girl Student Deep One
