Before reset recharge Soothing Word
Varian resets his hand.

Eight unpleasant-looking beds stand here. Their sharp iron frames are threaded with worn manacles and stained leather straps. Several are occupied by obviously unwilling patients; all are bound and in various states of consciousness, and their combined moans murmur throughout the room. Between them stand several small tables strewn with gore-soaked pans, flasks of mysterious fluids, and all manner of cruel-looking cutting instruments. A sizable brown-crimson stain covers much of the eastern wall, as if all the blood from a body once held there had exploded forth in a single violent eruption.

It's difficult to believe, but the patients here are even worse off than those found above. A couple of Varian's servants are waiting for he and Radovan as they arrive at the Operating Room. Varian thinks he recognize a Karvosan Dandy that he once met at a party, but the poor soul is too far gone to even contemplate rescuing. As fate would have it, the dandy's jerkin is neatly packed nearby. Surely their next of kin would have use for it.

There's plenty to investigate here but none of it is to Varian's liking. His pet cultist often stirs the right kind of trouble. As Varian prepares himself, the cultist breaks the lock to the corridor of patient cells. With that, a former patient turned Ghast lunges into the Operating Room. Varian holds a cloth to his face to guard against the stench while Radovan taunts and dodges the foul creature. Having gotten his bearings, Varian pulls out one his newly found scrolls. Upon chanting the sickening words, ghostly tentacles fly out from Varian's personage and wrap around the ghast constricting and crushing it until the undeath is squeezed completely out of it.

"That's new," Radovan smirks riley.

"Indeed. Now let us see if there is anyone worth saving," Varian replies preparing to go in the patient cells.

Turn 7, under the Blessing of Desna's Freedom
On each check, the first blessing played to bless may be played freely.

Zadim continues to explore the guard house, looking for any other allies that wizard might've had nearby. As he's peeking around a door, he's suddenly enveloped in an ochre mist. It seems to hover for a moment around him, before coalescing around a small jar that he keeps in his belt pouch, containing a spider that he occasionally milks for its deadly venom. When it moves away from the jar again, Zadim can see that the spider is curled up dead... this mist has sucked the very life essence from it, strengthening itself in the process. He jumps back away from the mist, realizing what it is, and draws his rapier.

Free Exploration - Oubliette #1: Vampiric Mist
Before acting, bury Spider. Difficulty increased by: 1d8 ⇒ 8
Reveal Humanbane Rapier for combat. Recharge Scorpion Whip to add Stealth
Check to Defeat - 12+8=20: 1d8 + 4 + 1d6 + 1 + 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (8) + 4 + (6) + 1 + (4) + 4 = 27 - Defeated.

With some skilled sword work, made even more impressive by the fact that he's slashing at a cloud of mist, Zadim manages to disperse the ... creature? Continuing to look around, he spots a harrow card on the ground. Although he doesn't know much about harrow cards, and doesn't recognize this one at all, he does notice that it is of the suit of Shields, which is supposed to be a good omen this month. Hopefully, that holds...

Discard Blessing of Abadar to explore - Oubliette #2: The Mountain Man
Harrow suit +1d4. Reveal Blessing of Wadjet to add +1d4.
Check to Acquire - Constitution 4+3=7: 1d8 + 1d4 + 1d4 ⇒ (8) + (4) + (4) = 16 - Acquired

Trying the next door, he finds the guard post armoury. A good omen, indeed! Quickly scouring the walls for any weapons that might suit him, he spots a very sharp and well balanced starknife. He tosses it in the air a few times to test the heft of it, and finding it quite impressive he slips it into his pack.

Discard The Mountain Man to explore - Oubliette #3: Keen Starknife
Reveal Blessing of Wadjet to add +1d4.
Check to Acquire - Acrobatics 12: 1d8 + 4 + 1d4 ⇒ (4) + 4 + (4) = 12 - Acquired

Continuing to look through the armoury, Zadim spots a throwing axe. Unfortunately when he tries to toss it into the air to test it out, it clambers loudly to the floor. Not nearly as well balanced... and now he's made noise. Zadim curses himself for getting carried away his haul here, and quickly leaves the room, on guard for anybody else that might've been attracted to the loud sound.

Discard Blessing of Wadjet to examine - Oubliette #4: Returning Throwing Axe. Then explore.
Check to ACquire - Dexterity 10: 2d8 + 2 ⇒ (2, 2) + 2 = 6 - Failed, banished.

Display Armor of Insults. End turn, burying: 1d7 ⇒ 6 The Mountain Man. Draw 4 to reset my hand. Draw 4 to reset my hand.

Hakon starts his turn.
Hour Power: When you suffer damage on your turn, each other local character suffers 1 damage of the same type.

Hakon stays at the Lair.

To Defeat:
Combat 10+##

If undefeated, examine the top # cards of the hourglass; if any are blessings, shuffle them into your discards.
Hakon takes the Diplomacy check to defeat, and buries Lamashtu's Madness (Unhallowed) to bless twice.
Diplomacy 13 (Lair, Bless*2): 1d8 + 3 + 2d8 ⇒ (4) + 3 + (6, 4) = 17 -> Pass.
After Acting (Scenario Rule): Constitution 5 (Adventure Rule): 1d8 + 1d4 ⇒ (1) + (2) = 3 -> Fail; Hakon becomes Plagued.
Defeated.

Hakon fumbles in the dark for his torch, keeping his weapons close to hand. Finally, his hand closes around the familiar, warm wood and light is summoned into the lair-like cavern one strike of flint later. Raising the torch high, Hakon inspects the decapitated ghoulish bat to ensure there are no lingering signs of unlife, then cautiously peers upwards for any more enemies.

Instead of finding more enemies, he hears some kind of muffled, fearful noise. Following cautiously, he sees someone huddled in a stony corner under a bundle of rags, hiding from the torchlight with panicked breaths.

"It's okay, it's okay. I'm not here to hurt you. I'm with the guard, with the city. We can get you out of here..." Hakon comforts them, cautiously leaning the torch across some nearby stones to free up his hands and lessen the severity of the light. He holds one of his sabers in his hand, but low and half-behind his leg, wary but trying to approach nonthreateningly. The individual is so covered that he can't tell what they are, but they're clearly in a state of panic.

"Shield your eyes from the light if you must, but please show me your hands. I can bring you to safety..." Hakon promises, remaining a few feet away. The bundle of rags stirs, and a shaky hand emerges from the shifting mound.

Dead, pustule-ridden skin drawn skeletal fingers.

Closing Henchman defeated: Hakon attempts to close the Lair.
Hakon buries Bodyguard to his character power to add his Diplomacy to his Strength check.
Melee 7 (Hakon): 1d10 + 2 + 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (8) + 2 + (8) + 3 = 21 -> Autopass; Lair closed!
Hakon moves to the Pits.
Besieged: Hakon suffers 1 damage and discards Double Chicken Saber +1.

Hakon reaches for his second saber but the... thing is so much faster than he could have foreseen, as some plagued, monstrous cultist-thing that may have once been human throws off the ragged disguise it wore over its threadbare Urgathoan robes and lunges for Hakon's neck with surprising strength. Unable to bring his swords to bear in time Hakon drops them as he grabs at the creature's bony wrists, struggling and stepping backwards as its horrible, decaying visage spews ichor over his lips and beard.

Spitting and retching, Hakon punches and struggles at the monster, stepping back again-

-into nothing, falling backwards into a pit amidst the stone. The cultist falls with him, still clutching at Hakon's neck, but Hakon kicks out with a leg, his armored boot hitting stone, and spins them both as they fall, and all of a sudden all of the motion stops as Hakon crumbles into the creature, crushing it under his armor as they suddenly hit land.

Hakon struggles away from the broken, plagued now-corpse and struggles to his feet, dizzy, bruised and vomiting. His head spins, his heart beats fast, he struggles for air between his vomiting and winded stomach, and the dark itself feels almost as constricting as the bony hands previously wrapped around his throat. After emptying his guts, he thumps his chest and claps his hands together, centering himself even he sweats and tries to spit out the rest of his bile. He can still see the traces of light coming from the torch above, and guesses he fell in a pit no more than 20 feet deep at most. Not only is the pit wide enough to move about in, but as his eyes readjust to the dark he can see passages leading out of this deeper portion to the pit.

He can worry about whatever sickness he was exposed to once he finds a way back to the others.

Hakon ends his turn.
Withering: Hakon randomly buries Explorer's Pith Helmet from his discards.
Plagued: Fortitude 5 (Adventure Rule): 1d8 + 1d4 ⇒ (1) + (3) = 4 -> Fail; Hakon buries Commune (Core) from the top of his deck.
Hakon resets his hand.

Hour of The Brass Dwarf (The first time you discard cards as damage this turn, recharge 1 of them instead.) Move to Pits, making use of the Hour power to recharge Aspect of the Frog for the damage. Then send Balmberry to recovery to heal Hakon 1 card and get rid of his Plagued scourge.

It's banished, and I discard Blessing of the Green Faith to the damage. Discard Sands of the Hour to examine the next card and optionally explore. It's Lady Andaisin (the villain), choose to not explore. Given the storybook power, we want to close as many other locations as possible before tackling her.

Withering hits Sands of the Hour. Recover Balmberry: reveal Erutaki Coat to add 1. Survival 8: 1d8 + 5 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 5 + 1 = 7 Use my accessory reroll on that. Survival 8: 1d8 + 5 + 1 ⇒ (7) + 5 + 1 = 13 Recharged.

Zova hears a crashing sound coming from one of the tunnels connected to the shrine. Worrying that her presence may now be known, she heads there to investigate and perhaps ambush whatever may be on their way to her. However, rather than an enemy, she finds Hakon clutching his stomach and with a rather pale face.

Trying not to surprise the skald, she slowly makes her presence known before offering some berries she has been keeping on her for such an occasion. "Here, try these. They should help get you back on your feet in no time!"

A heap of rubble lies around Hakon, and a suit of armor barely sticking out of it catches Zova's eye. Zova manages to cut herself a bit pulling it out, only to discover to her dismay that it is only a small piece of a full suit, having been torn into pieces. Before she can investigate the rest of the pile, Zova hears footsteps coming from further down the tunnel. She has just enough time to warn Hakon so the two of them can hide as a cultist comes charging through.

The cultist seems well-dressed and has an air of authority about her, no doubt the leader of the group down here. Zova thinks to herself that it would be best to gather the others before taking this girl on, as a miscalculation would not only result in their deaths, but also likely undeaths as part of the Cult of Urgathoa's growing army of plague-spreading zombies.

Flavor text!

Having somehow escaped unharmed from the patient-turned-ghast, Varian's returns to the operating room with well worn sigil of a star and sword. The cultist prostrates themselves to Varian holding out the symbol of Iomedae's Justice towards Varian.

"You will be wanting this," they advise with a gravel-filled voice. They nod towards the cells.

Grasping the symbol, Varian pull painfully at his forehead until a third eye emerges. He glimpses an ill-fated past and future for everyone trapped within, including disturbing amalgamation of angel, demon, and horse, a Leukodaemon. The fiend is staring intently at a crack in the containment chamber holding it. Varian witnesses a near future of the monster violently breaking out. Quickly, Varian snaps out of it and moves behind an operating table.

Just then, a loud crash erupts from the cells along with a sickening roar. A cloud of corpse-bloated black flies swarms into the operating room. Varian holds it at bay with the holy symbol and the cover provided underneath the table.

As that nightmare passes, the horse-skulled warped humanoid emerges from the cells crunching it's deadly jaws around the remains of the ghast, then quickly turns its attention and claws toward Varian. The count responds by weaving life draining magic through the symbol of Iomedae's divinity, leaping out in a beam of light, the color of roses or blood, that pins the leukodaemon to the wall of the room, replete with wicked medical-torture tools. As the life force starts to leave the daemon of sickness, Radovan ducks into Cells and emerges with one bawling city archer who somehow managed to remain unscathed...physically. Radovan quickly locks the cells so that nothing else nasty can leave.

"If you are finished..." Radovan beckons Varian to leave. Satisfied that the life force of the leukodaemon is suitably extinguished, Varian follow Radovan out but loses track of him in the twisting tunnels of the temple, eventually finding himself quite alone in the inner sanctum, with the remains of a dead Chimera.


Turn 11, under: 1d19 + 6 ⇒ (5) + 6 = 11 the Harrow of The Carnival
All damage is Mental damage that cannot be reduced.

Zadim continues to explore the guardhouse. Poking his head into the next room, he is stunned to find a lower planar being there. "That wizard must have summoned a pet..." he mutters as he draws his rapier and charges, throwing the new starknife ahead of himself with the other hand.

Free Exploration - Oubliette #5: Inquisitor Devil
Reveal Humanbane Rapier for combat. Recharge Blowgun to add Stealth. Freely recharge Keen Starknife for +1d4. -4 for Resistance.
Check to Defeat - Combat 17: 1d8 + 4 + 1d6 + 1 + 1d8 + 4 + 1d4 - 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 + (4) + 1 + (4) + 4 + (1) - 4 = 16 - Shirt reroll
Check to Defeat - Combat 17: 1d8 + 4 + 1d6 + 1 + 1d8 + 4 + 1d4 - 4 ⇒ (8) + 4 + (1) + 1 + (1) + 4 + (2) - 4 = 17 - Success, defeated.

After a hard fought battle in which the devil almost gained an upper hand, Zadim finally emerges victorious. He stops to catch his breath while he listens at the next door. Hearing the moaning of undead from behind it, Zadim decides that it's time to pause for a minute and regain his strength before he'll be ready to face them.

Recharge Studded Leather Armor to examine - Oubliette #6: Mob of Undead
Too risky to continue with this depleted hand (and some of those undead could be nasty, some of us don't even have weapons right now) so better to wait until everybody is equipped up or grouped up to continue.

Draw 3 to reset my hand and end my turn.

Deck Handler // Searching For: Spell 2 > Ally 2*2 > Weapon 2*2

OFF-TURN ACTIONS:
Hakon is healed a card (Double Chicken Saber +1) and is his Plagued scourge is removed!

Relief washes over Hakon at Zova's arrival. The Skald accepts the offered medicinal berries, doing his best to keep the sour fruit down through the nausea. Sure enough, less than a half-minute passes before the worst of the shakes and weakness subside, and Zova's keen vision see's Hakon's relief even in the gloom of the pit.

The sound of clanging metal heralds another small miracle - Hakon thinks he just heard at least one of his sabres fall safely into the pit from above. If only he could find it amidst this darkness...

Per his notes, on Zova's turn (prior to exploring the Pit) Hakon recharges Blessing of Kofusachi (Hour is The Brass Dwarf, which has a Constitution CtA) to search his deck for Double Chicken Saber +1, drawing it. My notes said to draw the Warhammer, but I would always pick Double Chicken Saber over the Warhammer and it suddenly became an option thanks to Zova's healing.

Scrambling in the dark, Hakon's hand closes around a familiar hilt. Wonders never cease...

========================
Hour (23->25): 1d18 + 6 ⇒ (18) + 6 = 24 -> Hour 24: Torag's Power.

Hakon starts his turn.
Hour Power: When you would discard a boon to bless a Strength or Constitution check, you may recharge it instead.

Deck Handler // Searching For: Spell 2 > Ally 2*2 > Weapon 2*2

Hakon continues his turn.
Hour Power (reminder): When you would discard a boon to bless a Strength or Constitution check, you may recharge it instead.

Hakon moves to the Shrine.
Besieged: Hakon takes 1 Ranged Combat damage, but displays and draws Gray Maiden Plate to reduce the damage by 1, to 0.

Shaking off the worst of his afflictions with Zova's assistance, Hakon re-arms himself and ducks through the cave system to try to find his other allies so that they may coordinate better. More by chance than intent, he stumbles upon a passage taking him into the inner sanctum of some temple-like structure, seeing Varian standing beside a dead chimera.

This seems rough enough that I'm going to ask Varian to break out the big guns and bury Sage's Journal to add his Knowledge skill.
Disable 9: 1d4 + 1d12 + 4 ⇒ (4) + (1) + 4 = 9 -> Closer than I thought; I should have thrown something else as well at it. But passed.
Defeated.

Hakon waves at Varian, beginning to approach before the wizard cries out, warning Hakon of traps in the dim light and - with some kind of magical item - summoning a floating light to illuminate the gloom. The skald shields his eyes and, once they had adjusted to the new light source, notes the pattern of pressure plates and ventilator grilles worryingly close to where he was about to plant his feet.

Hakon discards Fencer to explore his location, adding 1d4 and the Finesse and Swashbuckling traits to combat checks during this exploration.

Hakon sends Divine Insight to Recovery to add 2d6 to his check to defeat a barrier. I additionally ask that Varian recharge a card to his character power to add 1d4. (Based on his notes, The Midwife.)
Wisdom 8: 1d4 + 2d6 + 1d4 ⇒ (4) + (6, 2) + (2) = 14 -> Pass.
Defeated.

Speaking a soft prayer in the hope it will grant him some safety, Hakon warily makes his way over to Varian, avoiding more trap triggers thanks to the new light. As he does, Hakon notes the conspicuous absence of Varian's de-facto bodyguard.

"Varian! The light was appreciated; and if you can keep it up I can guide us back to Zova once we secure this area. What of Radovan?"

Hakon displays Gray Maiden Plate.

Hakon ends his turn.
Withering: Hakon randomly buries Divine Insight (Core) from his discards. Boo.
Recovery: Hakon is proficient, but chooses not to attempt the check to recharge any of his spells, and so they are discarded.
Hakon resets his hand.

Deck Handler // Tier 3.1 // 2 Hero Points // Looking for: Armor 3, Ally 3 (x2), Weapon 3

Hour of Orison. Move to Shrine, recharging Erutaki Coat for the Besieged damage. Recharge Sarenrae's Light to heal Varian 1 card, then explore.

Shrine 3: Henchman Proxy A2 (Cultist). Reveal Amulet of Mighty Fists to add 1d4 and the Magic trait. Recharge Sedja for character power to add my Survival + 2 (1d8+7) and the Animal trait. Reveal Fire Gecko for 1d4 and the Fire trait. Combat 10+3+3=16: 1d6 + 1d4 + 1d8 + 7 + 1d4 ⇒ (2) + (3) + (5) + 7 + (3) = 20 Success. After acting, make a Fortitude check per scenario power. Adventure adds 1d4. Recharge Stone Weasel for character power to add my Survival (1d8+5) Fortitude 5: 1d8 + 1 + 1d4 + 1d8 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 1 + (2) + (5) + 5 = 17 Automatic success. Cultist is defeated, attempt to close.

Note: Scenario level is 2, not 3. We treat as 3 for banes only, so #=2 for all of these closing checks. Since I get two attempts (one for defeating a closing henchman, one for empty location at end of turn), I'm not going to use any resources for this first check. Wisdom 5+2=7: 1d8 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 2 = 9 Success, draw a new blessing (random blessing 1, The Rakshasa). Shrine is closed.

On closing Shrine, move to Oubliette, discarding The Rakshasa and Amulet of Mighty Fists for Besieged damage (Oubliette increases damage by 1, and the damage is suffered after you move, so ouch). Then end turn, burying Heat Metal for Withering. Choose Hand Size of 7 as I reset.

Zova witnesses one of the cultists break off from the group accompanying who she presumes to be the leader of this cult and begin heading down the trail towards the main shrine, where Hakon went but minutes ago. Zova stealthfully follows the cultist, waiting for him to be out of earshot from the rest of the group before viciously pouncing on him. In short order, the cultist lie dead on the ground from Zova's relentless talons.

The cultist seemed to be wearing a curious pendant depicting a tiger-man whose hands are drawn backwards. Zova picks it up, but a magic spark goes between it and her own amulet of mighty fists, seemingly deactivating both for a time. Disappointed, she pockets it and finishes heading towards the shrine to apprise Hakon of what just happened. Upon seeing Varian there, she tells her story to both of them while offering some healing magic to Varian as well. With that finished, Zova suggests that they reunite with Zadim before beginning the final strike at the cult leader.

End of turn, Withering buries Magic Eye

As Varian, Zova, and Hakon rush to Zadim's aid,they enter a room who's main feature is the walls covered with a thick glass that holds, pressed to the walls, fragments and even whole bodies of the living dead. Their rotting faces sneer and broken fingers claw at each other as the shattered forms twitch in vain, their splintered appendages grasping hopelessly.

Zova points to a crack expanding in pane of glass. The party takes what cover they can as the glass explodes outward, shards cutting some and deflecting off of leather and metal on others. Out of the broken glass, a broken but preserved former patient wrapped in bandages emerges ready to exact vengeance.

Varian hops out of the party's huddle, slinging a special bit of shadow magic from his hand, collecting the glass shards in a multi-tailed whip, challenging the unfortunate undead creature to advance. It obliges, and Varian lashes out, Shadow Barbs ensnaring it in a deadly embrace. Damaged and limping it continues to advance on Varian, until an exotic blade appears at the base of its skull, causing it to collapse in a pile.

A charred and worn, Zadim emerges from the chamber's doorway, having just expertly thrown the blade.

"We know where to find the high priestess! Let us dispatch with the rest of this temple's guardians here before inviting ourselves into her sanctum."

Turn 15, under the Orison

Zadim continues to sit in his lookout location as the rest of the group gathers in the guardhouse. When Varian enters last, the undead in the next room finally burst forth. As Varian rushes to engage the mummy, Zadim whips a shuriken towards it from the shadows, to help Varian with the fight.

With the mummy defeated, and the group gathering, Zadim takes point and moves into the next room. As he enters, he spies a vampire alchemist off on the far side, likely the person that sent the mummy out after them. Zadim wields his rapier and charges.

Varian takes second combat check

Zadim strikes quickly against the vampire, hitting it several times in quick succession. As he tires he looks over and see Varian preparing a spell. The two have now travelled together enough that Zadim has started to recognize that look in the half-elf's eyes. As the air fills with static energy, Zadim quickly hits the ground just as a bolt of lightning flies over his head, striking the vampire fully in the chest. As the vampire falls to dust, Zadim stands back up and brushes himself off. "Thanks for the assist" he nods.

Closing Henchman defeated, attempt to close.
Hakon plays Good Omen to add +1d6+1 to a close attempt. Harrow +1d4.
Check to Close - Constitution 5+2=7: 1d8 + 1d6 + 1 + 1d4 ⇒ (2) + (2) + 1 + (4) = 9 - Location closed, the party moves to the Pits.

Looking around, Zadim spots that the guardhouse is now empty. He moves over to secure the gate and ensure that nobody else is following behind us. The door sticks briefly, and he has to really throw his back into it (with Hakon throwing a supportive spell at him) before he finally gets it secured.
With that finally done, he looks around at the group. "Well, only one place left for her to hide. Shall we?" he gestures to Hakon to take point towards the Pits...

Hakon sends Good Omen to Recovery.
Move to Pits.

========================
Hakon starts his turn.
Hour Power: On your non-Attack combat check, add 1.

Hakon gives Enervation back to Varian.

Hakon nods to Zadim, beginning to guide the party back into the dark caverns he'd previously fallen into and cautiously navigating back towards where he and Zova had spied the well-dressed cultist. On the way, Hakon takes stock of the state of his equipment and pushes the aches and burns of his wounds and exhaustion from his head. It's been a trial and a half, but they've damn near routed what seems to be the cult behind this plague between the handful of them. Korvosa may see a brighter future yet.

Hakon stays at the Pits.

To Defeat:

Before acting, succeed at a Constitution or Fortitude 9 check or bury the top 1d4+1 cards of your deck.
After acting, suffer the scourge Wounded.
I must admit, though I'm not worried about this going badly, I will note that this is the closest I think Hakon has come to death. I never drew Cure or Priest of Pharasma, and hypothetically I COULD die to this villain if she buried enough of my deck and wiped my hand. Lets try to avoid that.
BA: Hakon buries Double Chicken Saber +1 to add his Diplomacy to a check against a monster.[/b]

BA: Constitution 9 (Hakon, Harrow Suit): 1d8 + 1d8 + 3 + 1d4 ⇒ (2) + (6) + 3 + (1) = 12 -> Pass.

The group catches sight of the apparent cultist-leader. Nobility - or someone styling themselves as one - wearing the trappings of an Urgathoan cultist and carrying a wicked scythe. She seemed to have gathered some of the remaining cultists to her side, too, so numbers alone would not decide this fight.

At Zadim's direction, Hakon hunkers down to wait for a better opportunity to strike, but the pale woman lifts a bony finger directly at the Skald, even cloaked in the thickest darkness as he was. Could she freely see in this glum light? She opens her mouth, and Hakon makes to move as he realizes the beginning of a verbal component. All too soon a jagged stream of energy - some colorless wave surrounded by what can only be described as something blacker than the mere absence of light - scorches through the air, breaking the silence with a near-howl as Hakon brings his sabres up in a cross-pattern to block.

The energy blasts the weapons from Hakon's hands - scattering them to either side - and the proximity of the blast seems to cast a shadow over every one of Hakon's senses, as if his life was briefly dimmed and every wound and ache exaggerated. But the worst of the spell seems to have been deflected, and with a magic word of his own Hakon draws his warhammer as it blazes with light bright enough to illuminate much of the room.

The cultist sneers, drawing her scythe as the cultists surrounding her raise their daggers and shortswords.

"You are far from your post, Guardsmen. Attack!"

Varian sends Enervation to recovery to reduce the difficulty of the Combat check by 2d4 ⇒ (3, 2) = 5. New difficulty = 11.
Combat: Hakon reveals Glorious Warhammer to use Melee +1d8+1.
Zadim recharges Blowgun to add 1d8+4 to my combat check.

Combat/Melee 11 (Zadim): 1d10 + 2 + 1d8 + 1 + 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (10) + 2 + (1) + 1 + (1) + 4 = 19 -> Pass.

Zova enters the fray, clawing at the throat of one approaching cultist as another's dagger glances off her axe. Hakon doesn't take stock of the remining fight, but charges at the presumed cultist-leader as she hangs back, only to be engaged by a cultist that grabs at Hakon even as he tries to swing and punch the surprisingly-strong, bony man off of him. Another cultist rushes to attack Hakon whilst he's grappled, but they fall to the ground from an energy-sapping spell from Varian. Hakon continues to spar with the clutching cultist until the cultist suddenly freezes, goes limp, and falls backwards - a poisoned dart embedded in his neck, expertly shot during the struggle.

Shoving the limp cultist off of him, Hakon calls upon his magic hammer to blaze even brighter as he charges at the cultist leader with a warcry. She steps back, taking a defensive posture, leveraging the reach of her weapon to hold off Hakon's approach. Or tries to - Hakon roars in hatred and vigor, letting his pain fuel his war-focus, recalling his fights, his people, his story - and slams his shoulder against the bladed weapon, gambling on his armor and angle to deflect it with his frontal attack. Hakon's hammer swings out as he charges past her scythe, and his hammer strikes true - knocking the life from her eyes with a deadly blow to the side of the head.

She crumples to the ground, and Hakon looks around, head numb from adrenaline, shoulder burning, seeing the rest of the group dispatch the remaining cultists.

Lady Andaisin would be defeated and cornered...
Scenario: Lady Andaisin is undefeated and banished.
Scenario: Daughter of Urgathoa (Villain) and one Cultist (closing henchman) are shuffled into the Pits.

The cultist-leader's body twitches. Convulses. Hakon turns back in time to see the beginning of an unholy transformation as the bones of the once-corpse seem to grow, wrapping around the scythe like vines over a trellis, something both living and dead as the body rises to its feet from some unseen force. Hakon's wounds suddenly burn harsher, tighter, his head burning with agony as his rage teeters on the edge of his concentration, now staring up at a much larger, monstrous undead... thing where the cultist once was.

Hakon recharges Shining Wayfinder to move to the Pits (Rulebook pg 6, you may move to your current location when no other locations are available, and effects that would happen when you move are ignored), then examines the top 2 cards of his location...
Pits Card # (10 == Daughter of Urgathoa, 11 == Cultist): 1d10 + 1 ⇒ (7) + 1 = 8
Pits Card # (10 == Daughter of Urgathoa, 11 == Cultist): 1d10 + 1 ⇒ (9) + 1 = 10

Pits Card 10: Daughter of Urgathoa:

The creature screeches wordlessly, raising her scythe-claw before recoiling as Hakon's wayfinder shines with a strange, piercing light that seems to repel the monster. At least for long enough for him to stumble back out of her reach, re-readying his hammer for combat anew.

Hakon did not examine a non-story-bane monster, so cannot encounter anything.

Hakon ends his turn.
Withering: Hakon buries Divine Insight (Core) from his discards (his only card in discards).
Recovery: Hakon is proficient, but chooses not to attempt the check to recharge any of his spells, and so they are discarded.
Hakon resets his hand.

Move to Pits (see Yewstance's post immediately above this for rules cite that allows this to happen as well as prevents Besieged from happening). Display Aspect of the Hawk. Bury Angelstep to heal 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3 cards (don't really need the heal, but my deck order is currently 100% known and the ally on top of Pits lets me draw cards, so this gives me a shot at getting something usable at the top of my deck rather than Cloud Puff.

For the first check, Varian buries (Unhallowed) The Foreign Trader to bless and add his Intelligence die (1d12). Recharge Stone Weasel for my character power to add my Survival (1d8+5).

Zadim recharges Scorpion Whip for his character power to add his Stealth (1d8+4) and freely recharges Keen Starknife to add another 1d4.

After acting I bury the top card of my deck (Cloud Puff) and suffer Plagued and then we win!

Seeing the priestess transform into some sort of monstrosity, the group presses another attack! Varian reacts by drawing on some magic to invigorate the rest of the party, giving them extra strength and fortitude for one final push.

Zova goes in talons-first, tearing at the creature's sinews and hampering her mobility. The priestess swings a counter-attack at Zova, grazing her chin with her infected blade and causing the shifter to stumble back.

Seeing an opening, Hakon charges in and introduces the Daughter of Urgathoa to the business end of his warhammer, the clangs of steel against bone ringing out throughout the pits. Before long, the stress fractures the bony scythe entirely, depriving the priestess of her innate weapon.

Zadim seizes on her surprise by this development by striking from behind with his whip, followed up with a well-placed starknife throw into her skull to bring the priestess down once again.

With the immediate threat taken care of, the group stops to catch their collective breath. The cult of Urgathoa beneath this so-called hospice is now gone, and Korvosa can hopefully breathe a sigh of relief as those who were directly behind the plague's perpetuation are now dead.


 
 
 
 
 
Development

As you carefully burn the vats of blood veil, you piece most of the plot together. With the combined efforts of Doctor Davaulus, the necromancer Rolth Lamm, and the vampire Ramoska Arkminos, the blood veil was set loose, sowing discord and terror among the hapless citizens of Korvosa. It doesn’t take much effort to imagine who might benefit from such chaos.

For now, you relish a smaller victory, one that makes you heroes in the eyes of all. In rescuing the musician Ruan from the vampire, you learned that some Varisians displayed immunity to the blood veil. This allows the Grand Cathedral of Pharasma to develop a cure for the plague. As soon as a subject is immunized, they spread the cure merely by contacting the infected. Within a week, the plague is destroyed forever.

Many have died. The city is in no condition for more strife. Queen Ileosa commends your work from a distance. It’s best you don’t meet her face to face.

For now.

Loot ally Ruan Mirukova.

Adventure 3: Escape from Old Korvosa

During the Adventure

The Harrow suit is Books. Add 1d4 to Intelligence non-combat checks. When you play your harrow, you may recharge up to 3 cards and may draw an equal number of cards.

3A: Red Mantis and Orange Flames

As saviors of Korvosa, you would think you could enjoy some comfort after ending the horrors of the plague. Whatever the opposite of comfort is, that’s your new lot in life.

Queen Ileosa, Korvosa’s recently ascended monarch, is none too happy with the state of the soldiery. She has crippled the Korvosan Guard, in which you were enrolled of late. She has disbanded Sable Company, the hippogriff-riding marines that defended the city from assault. The Hellknights of the Nail have fled the city rather than face the wrath of the queen. Only the queen’s newest force, the armor-clad women who make up the Gray Maidens, have been given free rein to secure the city.

As Ileosa announced these draconian changes, Sable Company commandant Marcus Thalassinus Endrin rebelled in front of the crowd. Commanded to surrender his badge, he instead shot the queen with an arrow, striking her in the head. But instead of becoming an assassin, Endrin became the victim. Despite her grievous injury, Ileosa seized him by the throat and rammed his own arrow into his gullet. Tossing aside the wounded commandant, Ileosa declared martial law and locked herself inside her castle, safe from the madding crowd.

Your commander, Field Marshal Cressida Kroft, urges you to seek shelter. Fortunately, an obvious place recommended itself: swordsman Vencarlo Orisini has a school in the heart of the city. Old Korvosa has been under quarantine since the onset of the plague, its wooden bridges burned and its only stone bridge guarded by the Gray Maidens. The Maidens’ assignment is to keep Old Korvosa’s inhabitants in; if anyone tries to get out, they shoot the offender on the spot.

But for those on the outside wanting in, that is none of the Maidens’ concern. If you want to imprison yourself amid the rest of the trapped rabble, they’re all too happy to let you. Just don’t try to escape, they warn you.

You accept their terms and head toward Vencarlo’s fencing academy. It will be good to have a place where the Gray Maidens can’t find you. The school will be your haven.

If only it weren’t on fire.

"Oh my, you all look absolutely dreadful!" exclaims the apparition of Zellara as Varian draws out her Harrow deck once more for advice from beyond the grave. It's true--the party has had a rough couple of days from dealing with a hidden cult of Urgathoa to picking up the pieces after Blood Veil finally stopped spreading so rapidly through the populace, to the recent declaration of Martial Law by the Queen.

Zellara manipulates the cards into a grid and flips them over. "The Liar speaks to me and represents the part of the past most relevant to you right now. There have been many lies by many people, and for many reasons, that have caused you to all come to know each other. I sense one lie in particular, perhaps more an omitted truth, that may prove to be an unexpected boon. When examining the card, I sense a figure in my mind's eye, and swordfighting in the background. But this does not seem to be a battle, but rather friendly sparring."

"In the present, The Demon's Lantern represents a siren call, a trap. The friendly banter I hear in the scene has turned to shouting and cries. I believe it has already been sprung, so who has befallen it I cannot say, but keep your eyes and wits about you. In the future, The Rabbit Prince shows that same figure in my mind's eye, this time broken and defeated. But the light hope shines upon him, emanating from each of you."

"From this, I can only surmise that the figure is none other than Master Orisini. I feel something grave may have befallen him, but it is not too late for you to step in. Once you do, this omitted truth may come to light and shine brightly as a beacon of hope for all of Korvosa. Good luck." Zellara finishes her reading and fades away.

A picture of the spread is available.

The weight of Zellara's words becomes clear when Zova reaches the academy--it seems to be burning! Zova heads to what appears to be a storehouse in hopes that there is some water, buckets, or anything that would help put out or control the flames.

Using the storehouse as a staging area, Varian's companions look for fire fighting supplies. Varian rifles through his books and scrolls for something useful, handing Zellara's Harrow Deck to Radovan in the process. Radovan flips through the cards, "Master Orisini has a small but well stocked Library, ya know"

Varian stops in his tracks having just conjured a Bound Imp. "We must save the knowledge that we can from this conflagration!" he states turning to find Radovan already gone.

Varian makes haste to the library to find an empty cage and Radovan with a self satisfied look. Radovan approaches with a scroll. "Zell says you'd want a look at this one." Sure enough the parchment unlocks the secrets of Clairvoyance.

Radovan also finds a hidden compartment within a shrine to Gozreh and discovers a set of black masks. Both Radovan and Varian put the masks over their face to protect against the smoke. Varian reflects dryly: "There's more to Vencarlo than he is letting on"

Muttering the words laid out by the Clairvoyance scroll, Varian gets a glimpse of some of the remaining magic in the place. But also catches site of a hidden Red Mantis Assassin.

Having recently studied the tactics of the Red Mantis, Varian decides to use a more precise magic and a readies a length of Shadow Barbs in preparation.

When the assassin finally makes their move, Varian flings the barb around the assailant, trapping them in a snarl of shadowy magic.

Varian regretfully leaves the library, using his cloak to protect himself from the flames. A mournful wail comes from another part of the school. Radovan quickly plugs Varian's sensitive ears with wax earplugs to protect him from the effects of the destructive sound.


Turn 2, under the Harrow of The Wanderer
When a local character fails to acquire a boon, you may bury a card to encounter it.
Move to Blood Pool

Zadim quickly grabs what fire-fighting supplies he can find, and rushes down to the basement to attempt to locate the source of the fire.

Free Exploration - Blood Pool #1: Red Mantis Assassin

Discard The Vision to bless, name 1.

Check to Defeat - Combat 10+2x4+4=22: 1d8 + 4 + 1d4 + 1 + 1d12 + 1d8 + 4 + 1d8 ⇒ (2) + 4 + (1) + 1 + (6) + (4) + 4 + (5) = 27 - Defeated.
Bury Blue Star and Glamered Leather Armor to close.
Closed: Heal 1: 1d2 ⇒ 1 - The Queen Mother, shuffled into draw deck (deck shuffled).
Move to Bank.

As he's about to run down the stairs, Zadim suddenly has a vision... he sees an assassin in the basement, setting fires. With this foresight, Zadim runs down the stairs ready for battle! But unfortunately, the assassin hears him coming and is prepared anyway, getting the drop on Zadim.

But Zadim is prepared for battle as well, and fights fiercely. With a poison-coated fan in one hand and a poisonous whip in the other, Zadim dances around the assassin, slicing him over and over with the poisonous attacks. Quickly the assassin is overwhelmed by the poison running through his veins, and he collapses to the ground dead.

Zadim tries to put out the fires in the basement, and then seeing that the job here is done he runs back up the stairs, and towards another storage area in search of more flames to extinguish.

End of Turn Deadly Blaze: 1d4 - 2 + 1 ⇒ (2) - 2 + 1 = 1 - Meh, my hand is already empty. ;-)
Random Location: 1d4 ⇒ 4 - Storehouse

Deck Handler // Searching For: Spell 2 > Ally 2*2 > Weapon 2*2

I'm finally back! Sorry all.

OFF-TURN ACTIONS:
Before Zadim ends his turn, Hakon buries Sacred Candle to draw the hour (The Wanderer), since it's an on-suit Harrow blessing.
========================

Over the preceding days, Hakon's former loyalty to whatever creature has fashioned itself as Korvosa's queen has continued to harden and forge itself into a silent, revolutionary fury.

Hakon joins his fellow heroes not in search of safety, but for answers and allies. After the Trinia debacle and everything else, the Skald is certain that Vencarlo Orisini must be tied to a broader movement, and Hakon is ready to be convinced that such a movement is the only way Korvosa's people will know peace.

The sight of the flames elicits one in Hakon's own chest. A filling, vigorous, rightful hatred, burning around the coal of certainty that this fire was no accident. Hakon roars, charging his body and voice with power as he charges into the heart of the Manor without delay in frantic search of Vencarlo.

Hakon starts his turn.
Hour Power: On your Charisma check, you may use your Intelligence die instead of the normal die.

Balancing between the Manor and Storehouse, I think being able to take advantage of Varian's support and the allies at the Manor tips the scale towards it.

Hakon moves to the Manor.
Free exploration:

Manor Card 1: Attic Whisperer:

Core
Monster 1
Traits:
Mental
Undead
To Defeat:
Combat 13
Immune to Mental and Poison.
All damage is Mental damage that may not be reduced.
Before acting, each local character must succeed at a Wisdom 4 check or suffer the scourge Dazed.
While acting, distant characters may not play cards.
BA: Varian must pass a Wisdom 4 check. If you want, Hakon can bury a card to his power to auto-pass you.
BA: Hakon buries Incitation to his character power to add his Diplomacy to his check against a monster. Autopass. (Wisdom 4: 1d4+1d8+3)

Combat: Hakon reveals Kusarigama to use Melee +1d6.
Hakon discards The Wanderer to bless twice.
Combat/Melee 13 (Bless*2): 3d10 + 2 + 1d6 ⇒ (4, 9, 3) + 2 + (3) = 21 -> Pass.
Defeated.

Speeding through the foyer and halls not yet choked with smoke and flame, Hakon breaks down each and every door he sees, looking for survivors or culprits both as he howls out Vencarlo's name in his accented, magically-enhanced voice. From a nearby sliding panel to the attic, a small fox-skulled undead creature screeches in response to the flame, smoke and noise, and drops down in front of the raging Skald, surrounded by some strange magic that seeks to sap the very magic from Hakon's voice.

Hakon clamps his jaw shut mid-roar, unhooking one of his personal weapons from across the seas and throws a sharp sickle-head-like object at the creature. It dodges, but Hakon skillfully and furiously whips the chain-cord of the kusarigama around to whip its head to follow the creatures movements, flailing it in devastating lashes and whips until he strikes it square in its skull which gives way under the weighted hit. The creature's remaining body falls apart into dust as Hakon charges on without delay, rage still driving him on and cleansing the heat and exhaustion that would otherwise slow him.

Hakon discards The Inquisitor (Harrow) to explore again (and does not use the Adventure Power).

* When you suffer Combat damage, you may recharge to reduce it by 3.

Requesting that Varian recharge a card to add 1d4, as more armor would be nice with these wildcards.
Constitution 7 (Varian): 1d8 + 1d4 ⇒ (3) + (2) = 5 -> Fail, boo.
Banished.

Hakon breaks through a door into something resembling a large training-hall, perhaps one of several in the academy. Its walls are spotted with armoires and racks of weapons and armor, but the fires have already eaten away at much of its flooring and there's no way to access the equipment. More importantly, though, no sign of Vencarlo. Hakon grits his teeth and races on.

Hakon displays Gray Maiden Plate.

Hakon ends his turn.
Scenario: Hakon examines the top 1d4 ⇒ 3 cards of the 1d4 ⇒ 4 Storehouse.

Storehouse Card 1: Red Mantis Ambush
Storehouse Card 2: Ambrosia
Storehouse Card 3: Tower Shield

Ambrosia and Tower Shield are Banished. Red Mantis Ambush is placed on the bottom of the Storehouse.

Ablaze (Deadly): Hakon suffers 1d4 - 1 ⇒ (2) - 1 = 1 Fire damage. Hakon draws Gray Maiden Plate to reduce the damage dealt by 1, to 0.
Hakon resets his hand.

Hakon sprints down the hallways as the fires escalate, covering his head as cinders and fragments of wood rain down on him, pelting his arms and rmor.

Hour of Benefaction. Between Start of Turn and Move steps, display Aspect of the Hawk and recharge Dog to examine the top card of Storehouse (Card 4: Orc Rager). Stay at Storehouse and explore.

Storehouse 4: Orc Rager. Send Cloud Puff to recovery to ignore the bane's BA. Use Aspect of the Hawk with Dexterity for combat. Recharge Sedja to add my Survival + 2. Reveal Fire Gecko to add 1d4 and the Fire trait.Combat 10+4+4=18: 1d8 + 1d6 + 3 + 1d8 + 5 + 2 + 1d4 ⇒ (5) + (2) + 3 + (1) + 5 + 2 + (3) = 21 Defeated. Discard The Snakebite to explore. Since I played my Harrow, recharge Erutaki Coat and Amulet of Mighty fists and draw 2 replacement cards (Balmberry, Angelstep).

Storehouse 5: Red Mantis Mask. Use Fortitude and recharge Bat to add my Survival. Fortitude 8: 1d8 + 1 + 1d8 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 1 + (5) + 5 = 18 Automatic success, acquired. Discard Fire Gecko to explore.

Storehouse 6: Dire Crocodile. Use Aspect of the Hawk with Survival, and additionally discard Balmberry to add 1d6. Fire Gecko adds 1d4 and the Fire trait. Reveal Red Mantis Mask to add 1. Combat 15 (19): 1d8 + 5 + 1d6 + 3 + 1d6 + 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 5 + (4) + 3 + (5) + (1) + 1 = 21 Success, and with sufficient overkill.

Send Angelstep to recovery to heal 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2 cards (The Snakebite, Balmberry). Move on to end of turn, doing the scenario power first. Looks like nobody wants weapons as their first priority, so I think examining Storehouse is the best play here to avoid banishing boons that others would want, even though it puts a crappy barrier back atop the deck.

Examine Storehouse (retcon: this should've been random, roll is below the rest of turn to avoid messing up recovery dice rolls, but I ended up rolling Storehouse anyway): Proxy A5, Spectre, Venomous Dagger. Discard Red Mantis Mask to evade the summoned Inferno, banish Venomous Dagger, then put the remaining two at the bottom of the location in the order examined. Storehouse is now in the following order: Red Mantis Ambush, Henchman Proxy A5, Spectre.

Then I suffer 1d4 - 1 ⇒ (2) - 1 = 1 Deadly Ablaze damage except my hand is empty. Then Aspect of the Hawk is automatically recharged at end of turn. Recover Cloud Puff Survival 5: 1d8 + 5 ⇒ (3) + 5 = 8 Automatic success. Recover Angelstep Survival 9: 1d8 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9 Success. Choose Hand Size of 7 (+1 from Storehouse for 8) and reset.

End of turn examine retcon: 1d4 ⇒ 4 Storehouse.

While the rest of the group works on securing the academy and putting out the flames, Zova takes stock of the storehouse and tries to uncover who might be behind this bout of arson. An orc and his pet crocodile appear in the storehouse as well, clearly a bandit hoping to get some easy loot from the place before it burns down. Zova knocks them out with her talons before noticing a strange mask on the ground, clearly belonging to the order of assassins known as the Red Mantis. As Zova muses whether or not this is a clue, she spots another mask -- this time on a person holding a torch -- trying to set the storehouse alight. She manages to scare him away, preventing another fire from starting up for the time being.

Not having the brute willpower of Hakon, Varian succombs to the screeching pain of the undead creature. He takes on a terrifically unbecoming scream himself. He riffles through his scrolls furiously and realizes that he has the perfect Word at the ready, and his ragged cry becomes a soothing word, "Safe", but he knows in his heart it's a lie.

Varian briefly considers assisting Zova with the assassins in the store room, but considers himself ill equipped. Instead he takes flight to get a better vantage point of where other fires are and what else can be saved. He'll say this for Vencarlo, whether he's indeed Blackjack, he's keeping some strange creatures in the academy. Varian sets down in the academy's office and attempts to take magical possession of a homunculus, but he only manages to free the thing.

For the time being, Varian is "safe."

Entering the money vault, Zadim takes a quick look around. He spots a bag on the floor, but picking it up finds that the magic has been damaged and it's no longer useful. Hearing a crow off in the distance, he makes a note to mention that to Zova, in case it can become a useful ally. Just as he's thinking this, he hears another commotion from the store room and runs back that direction.

End of turn, Ablaze: 1d4 - 2 + 1 ⇒ (4) - 2 + 1 = 3 damage, recharge Ring of Protection to reduce damage by 3.

Rushing into the room, Zadim brandishes his rapier at the assassin. The poison-tipped blade quickly pierces his foe, striking him to the ground. Looking around the store room, he confirms that it is now empty and secured before moving off to meet up with Hakon. Luckily, on his way out he spots the glint of a magical ring, and scoops it up.

Draw 6 cards to reset my hand.

Deck Handler // Searching For: Spell 2 > Ally 2*2 > Weapon 2*2

Hakon starts his turn.
Hour Power: On your check to acquire a boon, add 1d6; if you succeed, bury the boon.

Hakon's frenzy continues to burn, but the continued lack of any sign of Vencarlo's presence stifles the fiercest of his inner flames to slow-burning coals. The power invigorates and protects him, but kept in check by his sensibilities as the Skald increasingly becomes convinced that Vencarlo must have already escaped.

Especially if Varian's discoveries ring true, and that Vencarlo was Blackjack all along.

Okay, that Hour power changes my plans. I can't actually keep any boons I encounter, but I'm much more likely to acquire them. The Office location only has boons and the henchman left on top, so this seems like the best chance to fish for deck upgrades before the rest of the boons get burned.

Hakon moves to the Office.
Free exploration:

Office Card 7: Eries Yelloweyes:

CotCT
Ally 2
Traits:
Hireling
Lycanthrope
To Acquire:
Wisdom
Survival 8
OR Charisma
Diplomacy 10
On a local Dexterity check or a local check before acting, recharge to add 1d6.
Discard to explore. This exploration, you cannot suffer scourges.
Diplomacy 10 (Hour): 1d8 + 3 + 1d6 ⇒ (3) + 3 + (5) = 11 -> Pass.
Acquired.
(Hour) Buried.

Hearing shouting down a hallway full of smoke and cinders, Hakon charges through the haze fearlessly, breaking down a door heedless of the risk. The backdraft causes a sudden surge of heat and smoke, but a rat-like humanoid slips out, hacking and coughing, fur matted. Hakon covers his burning eyes, waving blindly and yelling to the rescued rat-person to flee the manor. By the time Hakon retreats to safety and clears his watering eyes, they're gone.

Hakon discards Ruan Mirukova to heal a random card (The Wanderer), then explore again.

Office Card 8:
Wand of Force Missile:

CotCT
Item 1
Traits:
Arcane

To Acquire:

Arcane 6
For your combat check, bury or banish to use Arcane + 2d4.

DURING RECOVERY
If proficient, discard this card; you may succeed at an Arcane 8 check to recharge it instead.
Office Card 9:
Intelligence 6 (Hour, Harrow Suit): 1d6 + 1d6 + 1d4 ⇒ (1) + (4) + (2) = 7 -> Pass.
Acquired.
(Hour) Buried.

Hakon continues to blink as he takes a moment in the relatively safe foyer, eyes burning as he looks around for his compatriots. No sign of them in the immediate vicinity, but a magic-exhausted wand along the floor suggests that Varian may have been in the area, perhaps trying to suppress flames with its magic.

I could explore again, but healing is more valuable than explorations now that we're largely just down to a small number of banes.

Hakon ends his turn.
Scenario: Hakon examines the top 1d4 ⇒ 3 cards of the 1d3 ⇒ 3 Office.

Office Card 9: Divine Fortune
Office Card 10: Red Mantis Assassin
Office Card 1: Symbol of Agony

Darn, I really should've taken that last exploration. Divine Fortune is Banished, goodbye Spell 3...
Red Mantis Assassin and Symbol of Agony are placed on the bottom of the Office. All cards in the Storehouse are known and ordered.

Ablaze (Deadly): Hakon suffers 1d4 - 1 ⇒ (3) - 1 = 2 Fire damage, and draws Gray Maiden Plate to reduce the damage by 1, to 1, then discards Gray Maiden Plate to the remaining damage.
Hakon resets his hand.

Burning pages scatter amidst the cinders of the air. Clearly a small library or trove of scrolls must have gone up in flame nearby. The sight of the magics, stories, and history becoming ash before his eyes stokes the coals of Hakon's fury once more.

Move to Bank of Abadar off-turn. As a note: Hakon needs to summon and encounter the danger per scenario power (due to examining Red Mantis Assassin). This doesn't impact my turn so I'm not going to wait. Hour of Iomedae's Justice. Stay at Bank and explore.

Zadim catches sight of Zova and mentions a scared crow trapped in the vaults. Zova heads in that direction to try and free it.

Crow adds 1d4. Wisdom 7: 1d8 + 2 + 1d4 ⇒ (5) + 2 + (3) = 10 Acquired, but bury it for the location power.

The crow looks at Zova with gratitude and seems to think for a moment before heading off deeper into the vault with a caw. Zova follows it, to find the crow alight on a worn book depicting numerous scientific drawings of monkeys. Zova picks up the book and stashes it away, thinking to herself that it may help with practicing her shifting powers later. With that being done, the crow heads outside into fresher air.

Discard Dog to explore Bank of Abadar 4: Henchman Proxy A4.

Red Mantis Assassin:

To Defeat:
Combat 10+##
Resistant to Attack and Fire.
Before acting, succeed at a Wisdom or Perception 4+# check or the difficulty to defeat is increased by 1d6.
If undefeated, suffer the scourge Wounded.

Dog lets me ignore the Before Acting power. For the combat, use my unarmed Strength and recharge Aspect of the Frog to add my Survival + 1 and the Animal trait. Now that the check invokes the Animal trait, discard Blessing of Ketephys to bless twice. Combat 10+4+4=18: 3d6 + 1d8 + 5 + 1 ⇒ (3, 6, 4) + (2) + 5 + 1 = 21 Success, bury Balmberry to close.

The motion in the vaults must have attracted the attention of one of the Red Mantis Assassins stalking the area. The assassin pinned Zova down before she could react, however the lack of hands won't stop the shifter. She transforms her mouth into one more akin to a frog and makes use of the newly-elongated tongue to poke him in the eyes. As he lets go of her to cover them, she flips him to the ground and pummels him until he stops moving.

On closing, move to Office, then recharge Sarenrae's Light to have Varian heal 1 card (note: Hakon needs to summon an Inferno which would deal 2 Fire damage each to Hakon and Varian before this heal goes off). End of turn shenanigans, first off I examine the top 1d4 ⇒ 1 cards of 1d2 ⇒ 2 Office. Top card is Wailing Maidens (trigger). Choose Fortitude, then discard Raven (normally recharge, discarded per location power) to add my Survival. Fortitude 8: 1d8 + 1 + 1d8 + 5 ⇒ (8) + 1 + (6) + 5 = 20 Automatic success. Wailing Maidens then moves to the bottom of the location. Finally Ablaze+Deadly causes me to suffer 1d4 - 1 ⇒ (4) - 1 = 3 Fire damage. Discard Erutaki Coat, which is the only card in my hand right now. Continue with a Hand Size of 7 as I reset; I can always drop down to 3 if I get in dire straits.

Zova then heads to the office to regroup with Hakon and Varian. Noting the latter's injuries she says a quick prayer to Sarenrae to use a bit of healing magic on him. An ear-piercing supernatural scream comes through the window to the office, but Zova is able to quickly shut the window before it could have any effect. Unfortunately, this has the effect of also shutting in the smoke coming from the burning parts of the building, so the group will need to move quickly before they choke on it.

Vencarlo's office is getting engulfed in flames and smoke. And there are discomfiting screams and beastial noise adding to the chaos and confusion. Protected for the time being by Radovan, Hakon, and Zova, Varian pauses to open up his third eye as Zellara has been trying in vain to teach him from beyond the grave.

Out of body, Varian subconcious darts from one thing to the next like an anxious hummingbird, flitting this way to see a horned beast blocking the back exit out of the burning building; then to a nearby well that's been tampered with, nothing but mud from its depths thwarting any outside help that might come; then finally alighting on the location of a Red Mantis Assassin on their way out of the doomed office.

Varian snaps out of his magic-induced stuper. Stands up too quickly, inducing a sick hiccup, and a brief pause to recover. He rushes directly to where he knows the Red Mantis to be slowing the assassin down with an enervating energy flowing from Varian's shaking fingers.

The assassin stumbles attempting to lob a projectile at Varian's face but it bounces harmlessly aside. Now Varian reshapes the magic to pull not just the life force but the intellect away from the Red Mantis assailant.

Satisfied that he's no longer a threat, he shouts for the others to leave and closes this part of the structure down so it's destruction won't impact the rest of the building as much.

Notes for Hakon: needs to summon Inferno before the end of his last turn

Zadim, Hakon, Varian, Zova - Manor 6-11, 4 remain // 4=Wyvern Blade Trap


Turn 10, under the Harrow of The Big Sky
At the start of your turn, you may remove 1 of your scourges.

Zadim leads the group running back into the main section of the manor where the last assassin must be hiding. With almost the entire building now aflame, time is running out.

Free Exploration - Manor #6: Holy Light
Check to Acquire - Wisdom 8: 1d6 ⇒ 5 - Failed, banished.

Zadim runs past a spell scroll as it catches fire. No time to stop and trifle with such things!

Discard The Queen Mother to explore - Manor #7: Thunderstorm
Immediately displayed, no effect until the start of the next turn.

In the next room, the second floor threatens to collapse onto them, raining sparks and embers around the group. It's holding on so far, but not for much longer... time is of the essence!

Discard Spider to explore again - Manor #8: Horn of Blasting
Zova recharges Blessing of the Green Faith, because even though it's only an Item 2, we're not likely to get much else here after this.
Check to Acquire - Constitution 7: 2d8 ⇒ (3, 8) = 11 - Acquired

As Zadim continues to scan for the assassin, he spots a horn on the ground. He quickly scoops it up, thinking it could at least be useful to summon help once they've dealt with the final foe.

Discard The Joke to explore again again - Manor #9: Red Mantis Assassins
Before Acting - Wisdom 4+4=8: 1d6 ⇒ 5 - Failed, Difficulty increased by: 1d6 ⇒ 4
Reveal Humanbane Rapier for combat +1d8 vs Human. Reload Humanbane Rapier for +1d4. Reload Spider Venom for +1d4 and Poison. Recharge Blowgun to add Stealth (+1d8+4). Recharge Scorpion Whip to add Intelligence (1d8)
Check to Defeat - Combat 10+4+4+4=22: 1d8 + 4 + 1d6 + 1 + 1d4 + 1d4 + 1d8 + 4 + 1d8 ⇒ (2) + 4 + (4) + 1 + (2) + (2) + (6) + 4 + (8) = 33 - Defeated
Use Charisma to close. Varian recharges Asmodeus's Tyranny for +1d4 at an Urban location. Varian discards The Liar and the top 5 cards of his deck to super-bless the final closing check.
Check to Close - Charisma 5+4=9: 1d4 + 1d4 + 6d4 ⇒ (4) + (1) + (4, 2, 1, 4, 4, 3) = 23 - Super-closed for the Win!

Finally, Zadim spots the last enemy. He runs at them, with his well poisoned rapier leading the way, quickly slicing the man down with little effort. As the group tumbles back out of the flaming house into the fresh air, a constable runs up to them, and tries to stop them from exiting, thinking they might be responsible for the fires. Zadim stumbles his words for a minute, before the suave Varian saunters over and easily smooth-talks their way past the man with little effort, so smoothly that by the end of it both the constable and Zadim believe that somehow the constable himself was more likely to be responsible for the fire than the group. As the constable stands confused, the group disappears around a corner into the night...

We win!


 
 
 
 
 
3A Development

His academy burned and his home ransacked, Vencarlo Orisini is nowhere to be found. The Red Mantis assassins—masked destroyers in service of the insect god Achaekek—have kidnapped the great sword master. The red-shrouded mantises do not speak, so they cannot tell you where Orisini has been sequestered.

However, as the old proverb says, send an assassin to do a thief’s job and your hands will bear only blood. The Red Mantis may have taken Orisini, but they were no good at learning his secrets. Behind a painting by the artist Salvator Scream, you made a stunning discovery: a chest containing the gear of the legendary hero Blackjack! The name of Blackjack alone is enough to strike fear into the hearts of evildoers. The costume should be enough to stop those hearts cold.

Since Orisini cannot wear his cape and cowl, it falls to another. Someone must take up the mantle of Blackjack. That someone is you.

Reward

Each character may add the Blackjack: Hero of Korvosa role to their deck box. Each time they gain a power feat that appears only on their role, they also gain a power feat on their Blackjack role. Each time they gain a power feat on their role that also appears on their character card, they also gain that feat on their character card. At the start of each scenario in this Adventure Path, 1 character may replace their role with the Blackjack role and shuffle the Loot item Blackjack’s Gear and the Loot weapons Blackjack’s Daggers and Blackjack’s Rapier from the vault into their deck.

Acquired Cards

Eries Yelloweyes (Ally 2)
Crow (Ally 1)
Gozreh's Growth (Blessing 1)
Red Mantis Mask (Item 3)
Horn of Blasting (Item 2)
Wand of Force Missile (Item 1)
Aspect of the Monkey (Spell 2)

Vencarlo must have known all along what sickness was infecting Korvosa. Not the blood plague, but the machinations of a monstrous oppressor wearing the face of a Queen. He knew all along while Hakon followed blindly, taken in by words and promises without truth or action. For one who knows the power of Words so well, they still ensorcelled Hakon as true as any spell could.

Vencarlo, however great and noble, is but a man, though. In his searches, Hakon heard of the tales of Blackjack going back further than Vencarlo. This armor, this gear; 'tis a mantle, a symbol. Like the tattoos upon Hakon's skin and the stanzas he sings, this armor is more than any one warrior. And to uphold it requires more than any one warrior. With no sign of Vencarlo, it requires someone new.

Hakon takes the gear, removing his gauntlets and trying to pull on one of Blackjack's gloves. Despite his larger frame, the glove easily accommodates his size, too perfectly to be coincidence. An enchantment upon the gear for fit, perhaps? He balls his fist, testing the material. It's almost weightless, yet sturdy.

Of course it's sturdy. What can break an idea? What can destroy the meaning of a symbol?

The fires burn in Hakon again, but of a new kind. A ferocity not borne of anger, but justice. A new song, a new stanza, a new ode. To the rebellion - the freedom - of Korvosa.
