How to Awaken Bokrug (Cost 4):
1) Your controlled Gate is in an Area with your Great Old One.
2) Pay 4 Power, and place Bokrug in the Area containing the Gate.
Ghosts of Ib: (Ongoing) If Bokrug is killed, do not lose this Loyalty Card. At the end of the next Doom phase, return him to the map to any Area not containing enemy units. If there is no such Area, he remains one the card until the next Doom phase.
Spellbook Requirement Edit
Take this Loyalty Card, and hand it to the player of your choice. He then places Bokrug's spellbook on this card, and it becomes active.
Doom that Came to Sarnath (Ongoing)
At the end of the Doom phase, select an opponent. He selects any Monster or Cultist of yours, and removes it from the map. You may spend 1 Doom Point per faction with less Doom than you to prevent this effect.
This ability was changed in one of the Erratas. The new Version reads:
At the end of the Doom phase, select an enemy. Then, select one of these two options: 1) That enemy chooses a Monster or Cultist of yours to eliminate b) That enemy chooses one of your Elder signs to eliminate.
Any: Grab Bokrug and use him to hold down one of your gates. If someone Kills him, hand them his Loyalty Card and inflict the Doom that Came to Sarnath upon them!
Crawling Chaos: Weak Great Old Ones are an amazing asset to Crawling Chaos in the form of Harbinger targets. Purchase Bokrug and hand him off to another player. It is difficult for a player to justify protecting Bokrug from Harbinger when he will handicap them in the Doom Phase.
