What's needed: O2 release included first draft Tindalos card

Glow Great Old Ones {CW-GLO2} is an expansion released with Onslaught Two. It is a set of glow-in-the-dark versions of the first eight factions' Great Old Ones, excluding Great Cthulhu, whose Great Old One was released as Glowthulhu. With the exception of Azathoth, these figures were released with loyalty cards allowing them to be used as Independent GOOs, which were also made available as a download for use with the base figures. This expansion also includes a loyalty card for the Hound of Tindalos.
