Eldritch Horror The Dreamlands
If your board gaming life is too dull and the original Eldritch Horror doesn’t keep you on your toes anymore, then Fantasy Flight Games has you covered with an even more terrifying expansion. Eldritch Horror The Dreamlands takes you into the lands of madness and you most certainly won’t have a pleasant sleep here.
To quote the great Edgar Allan Poe: “Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night.” In this expansion you get access to new items, eight new investigators that are more versed into walking between the two realities and a brand new side-board that offers ways to see the Enchanted Wood, the Underworld, Celephais, the edge of the world and even on the moon!
With new lands two new Ancient Ones awaken: Altach-Nacha the Dreamweaver and Hypnos, the Lord of Sleep with their own Mythos cards but there are many spells, conditions, assets and adventures to help you get succeed (at least some of the time).
Eldritch Horror The Dreamlands tells us the story of Luke Robinson who received a puzzle box from his uncle and it led him to the Dreamlands where he spent most of his time discovering new adventures so these lands became his home. He wanted to help the rest of the world only when he realized that if the Earth was driven mad by the Ancient Ones his dreamland will perish as well.
So this new investigator permits you to move to any gate with the current omen and thus is very apt at moving across great distances. The Dream box he has is a trinket that allows you to gain one focus when closing Gates and if it is correspondent to the current omen you also recover one sanity so it is quite a good item to have in your encounters.
Eldritch Horror The Dreamlands doesn’t have a set release date for now but Fantasy Flight Games announced that it will be available in stores in the first quarter of 2017.
