Leo is swimming with money, I've been able to play big guns a game so far, and allies. You can use Keen Eye to help investigate, which actually really works with Leo. Yorick can get clues quite effectively with only a handful of slots. Yorick equipped with. I'm particularly fond of act of desperation in Yorick, it's pretty satisfying to murder people with a flashlight.
If you are willing to proxy, the new card "Old Key Ring" is fantastic in Yorick. I appreciate your advice! Do you happen to have an arkhamDB link to the Leo deck for inspiration? I've neither played Leo nor have played a campaign with him in it, and honestly I've been a little afraid of him. I've heard he can be super effective, but just from thinking about how he might play out, it doesn't really seem like his -1 cost to allies ability will save you THAT much money or time during the course of a game.
What's it worth, like 2 or 3 clicks a game max? Am I thinking about him wrong? One other thing: do Jenny and Wendy have enough clue-finding ability between the two of them for me to go into fighting?
I had originally been leaning toward someone like Akachi or maybe Agnes since I was thinking that I would need both Shriveling and rite of seeking. Edit: oh wait, after rereading his card, I see that Leo's ability is also essentially a free action to play an ally, which is certainly better than what I had thought.
All I remembered was the cost savings. The thing with Leo is he is really open. I've seen switchblade Leo decks, m bar Leo decks, knuckleduster Leo decks: all sorts. You could call this a Flamethrower deck, but I think of it more as a succeeds by 2 deck. With big guns, you are testing at 8 or 9 which is typically above.
My 3 allies were chosen because they reset when you use calling in favours. Guard dog could be upgraded to beat cop but it's a late game change. Big guns Charisma and Keen eye are much more critical upgrades. If you want to play this taboo legal, you can easily drop Elusive. I'd swap in safeguard, especially now there is a level 0 version. Game 1 I start without Gregory Gry and adaptable him back in later.
In carcosa I might be tempted to keep the blade about. If you are wondering what the deal is with the name, its called trick shot Leo because I imagine Leo and Gregory making side bets whenever he shoots something "bet you can't shoot it in the shoulder". With regards the other decks, they can definitely get enough clues if build right. With Lockpicks and Lola Santiago, jenny can get all the clues.
I worry though that she and Wendy might clash over Leo de Luca initially I think Lola is stronger in the long term. The best Wendy decks tend to include Leo. Leo also works very well with the new 4xp survivor permanent quick learner, especially once you throw in quick thinking and will to survive and maybe true survivor. You could hit 7 or 8 testless actions and test at -1 difficulty or -2 if you buy 2 from test 3 onwards.
You can achieve a hell of a lot with that. That's a really fascinating archetype. Amazon's Choice for carcosa. Arkham Horror: Path to Carcosa Deluxe. Get it as soon as Fri, Aug Ages: 13 - 15 years.

In the short story More Light , in which James Blish presented his version of a complete text of the play The King In Yellow , Carcosa was described as having four singularities: that it appeared overnight, that no one could tell whether it sat upon the waters of Lake Hali or beyond them on the unseen farther shore, that the rising moon appeared to be in front of the city's towers rather than behind them, and that one knew the city's name to be Carcosa the moment one looked upon it.
In Blish's version, Carcosa was created as a city of exile for the King in Yellow, because he was not king in Aldebaran.
Marion Zimmer Bradley also used the name Carcosa for a city on her fictional planet Darkover. According to her, this usage and the appearance of other distinctive names from Chambers' work dated from her own youthful fascination with The King In Yellow and her ambitions to produce her own reconstruction of the play on the basis of the fragments in Chambers' works.Aug 03, · An unboxing of Eldritch Horror - Signs of Carcosa Expansion.
