Bones of the Earth
The bones of the earth were strong here in Arkham. They responded to her queries with a quivering eagerness that almost made her nervous. But she knew that this was an advantage that she couldn't afford to squander. She would need all of her power to face the Old One.
If Akachi has 3 gate trophies, place "The Earth Speaks" in play.
If any investigator spends a gate trophy, place "The Earth's Anger" in play.
The bones of the earth spoke to her then, telling her the secrets of how she might be able to defeat the Old One, if she were cautious...and lucky.
Place a Clue token in every unstable location without an open gate.
"The earth is silent. Our actions must have offended it, somehow."

FictionEdit

The Story So FarEdit

For as long as Akachi can remember, she was trained to be the tribe's next shaman. Studying at the feet of the old shaman, she learned how to speak to the spirits, how to read the bones of the earth, and how to avoid the fell creatures that dwelt in the dark places.

Her education was supplemented by tutoring from an earnest young missionary. Her mentor allowed the man to teach her as long as he taught her English and other modern topics in addition to trying to convert her to Christianity.

As for his religion, Akachi was uninterested, for she had already learned many of the great secrets of lore, and felt the power of the old ways.

Recently, her old mentor called her to his bedside. His face was pale and gaunt. "Akachi, I have seen that a great trial is coming for you. You must go to the United States, to a city called Arkham. There, you will have to face one of the old creatures, using the things that I have taught you."

Weeks later, as she opens the door to Ye Olde Magick Shoppe, Akachi hopes that she can meet the challenge that lies ahead of her.[1]

As a young girl in Nigeria, Akachi became used to being set apart. Her habit of chattering away to thin air and secluding herself from other children led her village to believe she was mad. Her village dibia was the first to see her true potential. He believed Akachi was marked by the spirits for greatness and taught her how to use her communion with them to her advantage. Under his tutelage, Akachi grew into a wise young leader, respected not just in her village, but in every community to which she brought aid. Now she meets her destiny head-on, seeking out unnatural troubles that only her knowledge can stop.[2]

As a young girl in Nigeria, Akachi stayed apart from other children, preferring the company of imaginary friends. Her elders feared madness, but the village dibia believed that she had been chosen by the gods. The wise old man taught her how to travel between worlds and how to marshal spirits. Now, she has become a wise leader herself, traveling across Africa and teaching others to protect themselves. She's recently arrived in Cape Town and from here, she will track down the dark forces that threaten humanity.[3]
