Reactivating Mythos creatures
« on: December 23, 2019, 07:39:55 pm »

I think that a " Mythos creature" can't be reactivated by a officer, but I see this being stated only for "lesser mythos creature", and not the other ones in both Hellgates and the cards. Am I missing something?

"Mythos Creatures" and "Lesser Mythos Creatures" can only be reactivated by Rasputin.

It is under the full Mythos Creature rule in the First Summoning book. There, it notes that:

"A Unit with this Skill is immune to Suppression and Critical Hits rules. It can never have Passengers or a pilot or be the target of a Command Squad Special Action. It can never control an Objective but may contest it."

The highlighted part is the key. Since Officer Actions are a subset of Command Squad Special Actions, and the Mythos Creature skill does not distinguish between the subsets, it means that none of the Command Squad Special Actions can be used on it.

As to why they felt the need to call out the subsets for the Lesser Mythos Creature skill in the Lilith's Coven book... well, ask Dust Studio.

Thanks for this!

But the odd thing is... that part of the text has been removed from Hellgate. Why?
Thus far I have played it as it is described in the booklets (i.e. Mythos creatures can't be the target from any command squad) but I wonder why that indication disappeared?
This is going  to create quite some confusion!
