“A fiendish and ululant corpse-gurgle or death-rattle now split the very atmosphere—the charnel atmosphere poisonous with naphtha and bitumen blasts—in one concerted chorus from the ghoulish legion of hybrid blasphemies. My eyes, perversely shaken open, gazed for an instant upon a sight which no human creature could even imagine without panic, fear, and physical exhaustion.”
–H.P. Lovecraft, Under the Pyramids
Elder Sign: Omens of the Pharaoh is an expansion for Elder Sign, a dice game for one to eight players filled with Lovecraftian horrors. Based on the Dark Pharaoh expansion for the Elder Sign: Omens app, a team of investigators must join an expedition into Egypt to stop the rise of the Dark Pharaoh Nephren-Ka!
