The Horror Within
The Thing from the Shore places emphasis on skill checks, and highlights the Syndicate’s special talent for skill adjustment through Tear Gas and Friend of the Family. It also spotlights Hastur’s removal capabilities through Vaporous Isle and Shadow Company. Cards such as The Spawn of Madness provide players with the ability to completely tap out their domains on their attack turn, and if opposed in a challenge, allows them to refresh the domains to be used on their opponent’s turn.
In The Path to Y'ha-nthlei, tortured sleepwalker Julia Brown's journey arrives at its destination through transformation, providing the backdrop for this Asylum Pack's theme of change and metamorphosis. Nothing is as it appears to be when walking (or swimming) the path to Y'ha-nthlei. Cards such as Eye of the Deep transforms characters with a printed skill of 3 or lower into 1 skill characters with no abilities for a phase, and are useful against opponents with a great number of characters in play.
