Question for you:

Spoiler:
I see you used the sanity system. How did you handle Bokrug's arrival and the party taking a minimum 27 sanity damage? Essentially going insane unless they pass the DC 42 will save with no current sanity damage plus decent mental ability scores.

I'm using the sanity system and this bit has me worried for the characters next chapter.


Risi managed to assassinate the gnome bard while he slept in the guesthouse of Iris Hill. The players will be looking for a way to resurrect him. Any thoughts on how to do this considering the priestess is missing/dead?

The Player's Guide states that the PCs are in a fugue state. In the Horror Adventures book the lesser madness Fugue has some penalties with it. Should the PCs start with this madness if we're using the Sanity & Madness system?


Using the Scribe Scroll feat do Clerics have to prepare a Cure spell to put it to scroll or can they use their spontaneous casting (like a Sorceror) and expend a prepared spell to put it to scroll?
