Lovecraft-inspired dice-rolling game Elder Sign is off to Egypt in its upcoming Omens of the Pharaoh expansion.
The expansion is based on the a module originally released for the Elder Sign: Omens app. It is based around a team of investigators travelling to Cairo and joining an expedition to stop the rise of the Dark Pharaoh Nephren-Ka.
Publisher Fantasy Flight says that the game will include not just a new scenario for the players to explore, but also new ‘relics’ that allow them to re-roll important dice.
“The new Lightless Pyramid mode allows the investigators to travel back and forth between the relative safety of Cairo and the darker dangers of Dashur,” it says in its release announcement.
“Savvy investigators will learn the value of gathering supplies and performing some valuable research before venturing out, but shouldn’t be afraid to beat a hasty retreat when needed.”
Elder Sign is a cooperative dice game of supernatural intrigue, designed by the team behind Arkham Horror.
