The strange phenomenon is an echo of the catastrophic destruction of Mu. The repercussions of the serpent people's overreaching ambition still take their toll.
As an encounter, an investigator on space 2 may use an ancient portal created by a long-dead wizard of Mu; he resolves an Other World Encounter. If the effect allows him to "close this Gate," solve this Rumor instead.
When there are no Eldritch tokens on this card, advance Doom by 1 for each Gate on the game board, and then solve this Rumor.
Discard 1 Eldritch token from this card.
The second "solve this Rumor" phrase has been added via errata.
