comment When during your upkeep can you cast upkeep spells?
From the revised CotDP expansion, Denying the Ancient One, Revelation of Script, and Shroud of Shadow say Upkeep: Cast and exhaust. Feeding the Mind says Upkeep: You may cast and exhaust. Not sure what you want to take from that. Fantasy Flight has acknowledged miswordings in other instances in this game, I wouldn't take these cards as exceptions to the rest of the Upkeep spells.

@Matt Looking through my set of cards, Voice of Ra says 'Upkeep' rather than 'Upkeep Phase'. Perhaps that specific wording is from the initial printing, or maybe it's a typo on the AH wiki.

comment When can you cast spells?
Hmmm, that's a good observation! Right now, the closest thing I can find is this from the FAQ: Q: When can a character perform actions during a phase? For example, if a player with the ally Duke (“discard to immediately restore your Sanity to its maximum”) draws an encounter and has to roll a die and lose that much Sanity, when can he discard Duke to restore Sanity: not at all once the encounter card is drawn, before the roll, or after the roll? A: Actions can be performed at any time during their listed phase as long as any given conditions are met.

Aligned the question in the title with the question in the description. The two were opposites.

comment What is the value of the Iron Throne track?
I've found having the Iron Throne to be very useful at the end of the game when I'm making a final grab for a stronghold. It gives you the opportunity to make a grab for the last point or two before anyone else can march. Additionally, the Iron Throne track is part of the tiebreaker. Granted, it's the last step after Stronghold count, supply strength, and power, but it could potentially happen.

comment When you reset the counter for successes against an Elder God do you stop counting successes for that dice roll?
You did it correctly. Nyarlathotep is one of the easier ones to beat in combat. With only a -4 modifier and not resistant or immune to physical weapons, most characters will have dice to roll against him. Combined with his attack that could possibly make you lose a single clue token, you generally have an easy final battle

What BGG discussion are you trying to link to? Even after correcting the misspelling in the link, it points to a totally different game.
