From the Dunwich Horror rule book:

For each monster returned to the cup in this fashion, raise the terror level by one. In addition, if there are fewer than three Dunwich Horror tokens on the Dunwich Horror track, add one Dunwich Horror token to the track.

Does this mean if three monsters move onto a vortex in one monster movement phase that three Dunwich Horror tokens are added (if none are there) or just one?

The wording specifies that this action is in addition to raising the terror level.

The rules does not state that you add one Dunwich Horror token for each monster added. After increasing the terror level, if there a fewer than 3 tokens, add one token only

    Do you have a source for this ruling? I think the issue is that the wording in the rule book is ambiguous (that being said, I do interpret it the same way as you) Mar 21, 2014 at 3:02
