Looking through my photos I see I have failed to get any photos of the game! It was late, and perhaps I was a tad hungry, and my brain melting, though its a shame, there were certainly some chances for some shots of epic scraps in this game.
Round 6 – The Secret of the Resonator
Story: You discover what's left of Tillinghast. His body intact, but his mind shattered. As you attempt to bring him back through the breach with you, he is torn apart by some invisible beast. At least the resonator is still intact, if you can bring it back with you...
45ss vs Rasputina (Tony, tpenksa)
Strategy: Modified Shared Treasure Hunt (A large monster guards the Resonator ‘treasure’, can be controlled once per turn per player at the cost of a ss, and otherwise charge toward the resonator (or the one who carries it) and damage all in its path.

Rasputina: Grudge (unannounced), +2ss
