|“||Across Arkham, strange doors to other worlds have been opening. They seem to be a living part of an ancient and arcane creature that has been reaching out, tempting the unwary with eldritch power. Now people are vanishing without a trace and it’s up to a handful of bold investigators to confront the profane being who dwells just beyond these passages. But even working together, will they be able to destroy these unnatural and deadly gates without themselves striking a terrible bargain with the Lurker at the Threshold?||„|
As a small-box set, The Lurker at the Threshold was a cards-only expansion, featuring 56 Investigator cards including new Items and Spells, and 110 Ancient One cards whose special effects were intended to spin games of Arkham Horror in different directions from the core set.
In addition, this pack saw the introduction of the Relationship and Dark Pact mechanics to Arkham Horror. As it’s name might suggest, the Relationship mechanic allowed players to develop interpersonal relationships with one another, further enhancing the role-play aspect of the game, while the Dark Pact rules allowed players to make beneficial, but potentially highly costly, deals with the Lurker at the Threshold.
