How to Awaken The Risen One:
Yellow Sign Faction: Pay 7 Power and place the Risen One at your controlled Gate. You may place it so that it overlaps into neighboring Areas. Then each other player gains 1 Elder Sign.
All other Factions:
  1. Your controlled Gate is in an Area with your Great Old One.
  2. Pay 8 Power, and place the Risen One in the Area containing the Gate. You may place it so that it overlaps into neighboring Areas.
Combat: Choose any number.
Reality (Ongoing): The Risen One is considered to exist in every Area in which its base overlaps. It can attack into any of them, can move into any Area adjacent to any of them, etc.
Madness (Battle): You may roll any number of dice for the Risen One's Combat total. However, if the Risen One's side scores more kills than its opposition, the Risen One is eliminated.
