Бестолковый ултарский кот

Актив. Союзник

Союзник. Существо. Мир грёз.

Цена: 4.

Здоровье: 1. Рассудок: 4.

Только в колоду Кэролин Ферн. Замена.

Когда «Ахиней» входит в игру, положите на него 3 жетона ужаса. Ужас на «Ахинее» можно лечить, как если бы эти жетоны лежали на «Кэролин Ферн». Пока на «Ахинее» нет ужаса, у вас +1 к каждому навыку.

«Тебя снова придется спасать?» — Ахиней задергал хвостом: «Возможно. А может, спасать придётся мне».

  • "As If": This was added to the FAQ (v.1.7, March 2020) and then amended (v.1.8, October 2020). You can read the October ruling on the ArkhamDB rules page here. (I'm adding a hyperlink rather than retyping the rules in case in future the ruling is changed or amended - at that point, the rules page will be updated and all ArkhamDB FAQ entries will link to the correct ruling.)

+1 to all skills is pretty nice, and Dr. Fern can't take Crystalline Elder Sign, but this card is moderately expensive (although Carolyn has good economy, made better by targets for horror healing), slow to get moving (a whole turn of actions to get to full), and your ultra-valuable ally slot is filled with soak that you can't rely on too much. This, coupled with a signature weakness that usually ranges from alarming to deadly, makes Foolishness an expensive add to a Carolyn deck. Probably best to stick with the "box" signature set.

With more XP you can heal sanity more efficiently and gain ressources quicker, which makes the cat easier to trigger and the bonus is pretty good. — Django · 4973
I feel like this is one of those signature cards where it is cooler than it is effective (at least in regards to the weakness). Duke is cooler than Foolishness but having a pet as your companion that grants you +1 to all skills is so awesome. I will probably only play Carolyn with Foolishness now just because it is so cool. — The Lynx · 971
Only just now noticing that thematically, it really seems like the pairings of Carolyn's signatures should have been swapped... as in, if Rational Thought is a weakness, it stands to reason that Foolishness is a strength. — HanoverFist · 690
That is so brilliant as a comment I think I'm going to start doing it — Lailah · 1

I think this is an underrated ally for Carolyn.

Although if you look closely, you might realize, why this cat is unbelievable great. Bear in mind, Carolyn's main ability and this little text from FAQ "Other card abilities or game effects do not resolve with the altered game state in mind; only the indicated ability/action." - you get:

If healing two horrors from Carolyn, but actually removing it from both her and her cat, you get two resources, instead of one. Clarity of Mind helps with that))

As a side note - FFG always makes better versions of the personal cards in the books :)

One other thing. You can give your partner investigator this card with Teamwork and heal horror from it as if it were you giving your partner even more resources and a chance of +1 to all skills. And that's totally thematic - like a cat would take your troubles away.

I think people would like Foolishness just fine if you didn't have to take the accompanying weakness — Zinjanthropus · 225
