Just the temples left to corrupt.  Anecdotal evidence is that the final three take the largest numbers of troops/diplos.  Is there any truth to the speculation that all three temples will corrupt at the same time when Audrey awakens?

I don't believe activation of the HoC is related to any lunar phase.  I believe that also holds when she stops (21 days?).  The visits by the crone and attempts of the tentacles escaping do follow moon cycles.  The crone comes first and the tentacles attempt to escape two weeks later.

Good luck to those who continue to pursue this discovery and to those just starting be sure hit those corrupted temples and collect as many tentacles as possible.  The community especially needs more orc and dorf tentacles!

Send me an IGM if you have MULTIPLE CITIES prepared (5 tentacles, crone, messenger to Duraz) for this next awakening.  I think there may be a maximum number of cities that the crone will visit (with the message about the five tentacles per race) for a single player.  I was hoping to do more for the sake of experimentation but the crone has checked out on me.  I'd be interested to know if anyone else has had a similar experience.

Best,

mmh! nice to know that GM Stormcrow keeps a look on the state of affairs…

However it seems the last awakening of the Heart of Corruption didn't work as the previous ones: as far as I know, no city, even if ready for the 'last step', experienced the tentacles escape nor the attack to be fended off...

Anyone have more than five of each tentacles in a city?

Can anyone get the old crone to visit?

Anyone who has gathered five tentacles of each for the first time is welcome to contact me for advice on how to proceed.  I wonder if a few of us vets have had too much failure?  Our "reputation" was at stake and we failed.

Do you suspect that tentacles need to be 'freshly' acquired to trigger the escape procedure to last step of the discovery?

Would it make sense, given the sort time to get the necessary items! (your own racial, then trade with other races?!)

My thoughts at this point:

(1) If a city has failed the quest then it can never complete it successfully.  Are players attempting the quest for the first time, that is having 5 tentacles of each race prior to Audrey's awakening, are these players receiving the usual messages that have been already documented?

(2) Perhaps more than 5 of each race is needed to improve chance of success?  The message does say "at least" five of each race.
