Blood on the Altar: Mythos Pack is an expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game. It was released in 2017 and is the third Mythos Pack in the Dunwich Legacy cycle.
Blood on the Altar gives investigators a new chapter of the story to explore. In this expansion, you will travel to the village of Dunwich to investigate a series of suspicious disappearances. Could they have something to do with happenings back in Arkham? That’s what you’re here to find out.
In order to play with this Mythos Pack, you’ll need a copy of both the core set and the Dunwich Legacy big box expansion. The expansion contains 60 cards, including a complete play-set of every new player card that it introduces. This will allow you to incorporate these cards into your decks to the extent that you wish, tailoring your preparations for the next challenge.
You’ll need to have your wits about you as you investigate Dunwich. Not only are you investigating otherworldly dangers that are on the edge of comprehension, but it appears that the townsfolk aren’t exactly jumping to aid you in your investigations. There are secrets in Dunwich - dangerous secrets - and Blood on the Altar gives you the chance to get to the bottom of it. Of course, it’s never as easy as it sounds…
Explore the village of Dunwich as you search for the clues that will unlock the secrets you’re investigating. Along the way, you’ll need to stop in many of the locations that appear in H. P. Lovecraft’s classic tale, The Dunwich Horror. But watch where you step. Something isn’t right here, and one wrong move could bring everything you’ve worked for crashing down. Stay alert, ask the right questions and look in the right places and you might just stand a chance. There’s only one way to find out...
