Deck Handler // STR d8 | DEX d8+2 (Ranged +3) | CON d10 (Fort +3) | INT d6 (Craft +3) | WIS d6 | CHA d4

Prefer Goods for replay.


STR d4 | DEX d4 | CON d6 | INT d8 (Knowledge +2) | WIS d10 (Divine +2, Perception + 2) | CHA d10 Deck Handler

Boon: 1d20 ⇒ 8

Estra will add a non-basic Weapon, and take Ally 1 (Vexing Daredevil) and Weapon 1 (Javelin of Lightning) as upgrades.

Estra will take a Card Feat: Spell, adding Frigid Blast.

I lean Culture for next scenario but fine with anything.


STR d8 +1 (melee+2) | DEX d6 | CON d6 | INT d6 | WIS d6 | CHA d10+1 (arcane+2; diplomacy +2) Deck Handler

Just bought the Ultimate Magic deck. Talitha will take the Spell 2 (I don't think anyone else can or wants it ) and a Blessing B. She'll replace Lighting Touch with Ghost Whip and replace Blessing of the Gods with Blessing of Abraxas.

With the UM deck, there are some good items in here. Talitha could be convinced to do Goods next, but is generally leaning towards Culture first.


Looks like upgrades are:
Talitha: Spell 2, Blessing B
Estra: Weapon 1, Ally 1
Sajan: Ally 2 (using for Ally 1), Item B
Angban: Armor 2, none*

*There's still Weapon 2, Armor 1, Spell 1, Ally B, Blessing B available if Angban would like a 2nd upgrade.

Intro is posted. Note that you should ignore Astral Rifts when attempting to close the Theater of Corruption.

Choose starting locations and draw opening hands!

Back from my trip - thank you for automating my deck upgrades, BR!

    I can use the Armor B to get my armor to a slightly better armor from ultimate combat, or I can use the Ally 1, I'm pretty open. Let me know if Estra wants anything, otherwise I'm working on my writeup for game.


    Deck Handler // Searching For: Blessing 0

    Hey everyone!

    I'm letting everyone know that I'll be travelling to the States on my Friday, October the 18th, a journey which - between the series of long flights and the absolute necessity to pass out asleep as soon as I reach my destination, and the associated settling in - will likely take me out of action for about 36-48.

    For the timezones of most of you, this effectively means I likely won't be posting around Thursday or Friday (and possibly Saturday). Once I'm settled in, standard posting frequency should resume, albeit at different time slots.

    If we finish this scenario before then, then there won't be any issues. If not, then I'll almost certainly need to be botted given my travel is right before the conclusion to the Special.


    Note that the "acquired cards" list is unnecessary. The reward lets everyone choose any 2 cards (B/1/2) for upgrades.

    10-00E reward: 1d20 ⇒ 2
    Nope


    STR d8 +1 (melee+2) | DEX d6 | CON d6 | INT d6 | WIS d6 | CHA d10+1 (arcane+2; diplomacy +2) Deck Handler

    Talitha will chose the upgrades:

    Item 2: Pick up Anathemic Volume. An item basically tailor made for Talitha. Compass is out
    Blessing 1 Blessing of Sivanah in, Blessing of the Gods out.

    Bonus Card Feat: Spell Pick up Bit of Luck for even more reroll shenanigans.

    Boons!
    Boon?: 1d20 ⇒ 5


    Deck Handler // Searching For: Blessing 0

    10-00E - Sajan Rewards

    Tier Progression: (1.5) Sajan gains a Hero Point.
    Sajan stores the Hero Point.

    Sahan has 2 remaining Hero Points.

    10-00E Boon Roll: 1d20 ⇒ 9 -> Nothing earned.

    Adventure Reward: Sajan earns a Card Feat (increasing his Card Feat cap to Tier+1), and checks off...
    BLESSING 5 [X] 6 [X] 7 [ ] 8
    Sajan fills his new deck slot with Blessing of the Gods (3), which will be replaced below.

    Scenario Reward: Sajan will take the Deck Upgrades listed below from his Class Deck.

    Sajan's Deck Upgrade preferences are as follows...

  • Blessing 1: Replace Blessing of the Gods (3) with Blessing of Bastet (Ultimate Intrigue).

    Okay, so I never got one of my upgrades from D, I took Ally 1 (Surgeon) to replace my Quartermaster.

    Boon: 1d20 ⇒ 13

    For this scenario, Card Feat will be Item, and I'll take an Item 2 and Item 1, taking Masterwork Tools (2) instead of my Thieves' Tools, and just plain adding Emerald of Dexterity (1).
