Cthulhu: Death May Die

Death of an Investigator


When an investigator is killed or consumed by madness, the game is immediately lost if the Elder One is still on the Summoning track. If, however, the Elder One has already been summoned to the board, the other investigators may continue playing and try to win the game. First, discard all Discovery cards and tokens that investigator had. The episode may specify something to do with any special tokens the investigator had been holding. If the investigator died during their turn, skip all the following turn phases except for the Check the Mythos Discard Pile phase. If there are 3 Elder One Summoning symbols, the Elder One advances and its effects are applied (if it is needed to determine the position of the dead investigator, use the space where they died). From now on, that player’s turn is skipped entirely.
