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 its base overlaps. It can Move into any Area adjacent to any of them, participate in a Battle in any of them, etc.
Madness (Battle): You may roll any number of Combat dice for the Risen One's. However, if the Risen One's side scores more kills than its opponent, the Risen One is Eliminated.
