I have expend all the morning fighting Umordoth in the Vault of Earthly Demise. We wanted to play the Return to the Night of the Zealot without sacrificing Lita Chandler in hard mode. 2 players. We arrived to the conclusion that the Vault is a card too powerful that makes this impossible. We need more characters or an easiest difficulty. But even with more dakka increasing the combat stat of Umordoth seems a bit unbalanced. Maybe we can fight once or two times against a 6-8 combat stat, but to defeat it we need many combat rounds. Is impossible to sustain many fights againts these numbers. So basically my review of this card is that we need to read the text as: "Kill Lita Chandler, don't even try to challange me, you weak humans." Has been fun though.
Perform the setup as indicated in the Night of the Zealot Campaign Guide, with the following exceptions:
- When gathering encounter sets, also gather the new encounter sets for Return to The Devourer Below shown here.
- When choosing 4 Arkham Woods locations to put into play at random, include the 4 new Arkham Woods locations included in this encounter set, for a total of 10 possibilities.
- After setting the Umôrdhoth enemy aside, flip this card over and attach it to Umôrdhoth.
Vault of Earthly Demise cannot leave play.
Umôrdhoth gets +X health per investigator and gets +X fight, where X is the number of resources on this card.
Forced - When Umôrdhoth enters play, place 1 resource on this card for each act remaining in the act deck.
