An excerpt from the Arkham Advertiser:
Professor Christine Krosnowski has been released into the custody of Miskatonic University’s School of Medicine after being observed by mental health specialists for several days. Students and faculty alike were stunned when Miss Krosnowski, a Poetry and Literature instructor at Miskatonic for six years, was found on campus, warning of an impending doom and suffering from strange cuts and bruises.
Dr. Allen Halsey, the Dean of Miskatonic’s medical school stated, “Christine’s care is unique and requires a rare kind of understanding. She has received excellent care thus far, but we believe that the real help she needs to confront her fears is here, within the walls of Miskatonic.”
The upcoming release of Miskatonic Horror promises to put Arkham’s investigators to the ultimate test. Miskatonic Horror is a unique expansion for Arkham Horror, providing a library of materials to augment every expansion as well as the base game. The mystery surrounding the small Massachusetts town is about to get increasingly more bizarre; the madness and horror faced by Miskatonic University professors will spread...promising an unforgettable experience.

Need more sleeves...
Can't wait to try out the institutions!
I'll second that Erifder!
Thanks a bunch UniversalHead for all your hard work in keeping the summary sheets updated. It is very much appreciated!
Oh and this looks to be a great addition to AH. It's nice to have some enhancements to the existing expansions instead of more boards to try and fit on a table. :)
And that's because I saw UniversalHead's latest rule summary update with the revised Curse of the Dark Pharaoh earlier today and was fantastically amazed by it. I immediately started wondering if he was going to put an update if FF put out the rules for Miskatonic.
Sure enough, later today I saw the rules were posted for Miskatonic. I will eagerly be waiting for the latest Headless Hollow update for the game.
I don't know if enough people tell you UniversalHead, but I can tell you I really appreciate your updates on these rules summaries.
Keeping my rules summary updated is turning into a fulltime job! ;)
This looks like a great addition to the game - can't wait to play with all the new additions!
So there's... seven more Blight cards? That cover three cities? One of the cities must have gotten an extra Blight card. Does that mean that there are two Dunwich Blights, two Innsmouth Blights, and three Kingsport Blights? I'm guessing it was Kingsport because it's getting more additional Location cards than the other cities. But why not have an equal number of Blight cards for each city?
Yeah... I'm not really thrilled with the DH Herald... Would have been nicer if it got tokens whenever a monster went into *any* vortex (I'll probably houserule that).
Mythos cards with alternate gates is nice, but the Dunwich Horror Herald (revised) seems mostly a minor change to the printable version (was the only difference mentioned the doom token range changed from 3-6 to 2-6?).
Oh boy, here we go again :)
