Fantasy Flight Games released a new preview of their latest expansion for their Call of Cthulhu LCG entitled “The Sleeper Below”. In this preview, FFG focuses on a new type of people called societies.
Each of the eight Society characters in The Sleeper Below represents a group of similarly minded individuals who are bent upon secretly advancing their own agenda, whether that agenda be to defend humanity’s interests, seize control of humanity, or summon forth the Great Old Ones.
It makes sense, then, that these Societies are more skillful and capable than nearly every individual character within the game. Each Society comes with six skill and a mix of five struggle icons. They’re all unique, and at six cost, they’re all quite expensive. Of course, high-cost characters come with some inherent benefits, such as the ability to bypassNegotium Perambulans in Tenebris (Dunwich Denizens, 80) and a higher degree of protection from such cost-based events as from Pushed into the Beyond (Touched by the Abyss, 109) and Deep One Assault (Core Set, 56).
