When I did it, if the card they chose was good, I would describe it as dissolving in a shower of sparkling lights. They knew they'd chosen correctly at that point.
When they killed a storykin, since they are formed from wax and other such materials, I would describe them as dissolving into puddles of noxious waxy residue.
As for Brambleson, personally I kept Sir Didymus from Labyrinth in my head.
The one I didn't know of was that for most of the beneficial touch spells, the upper limit is 6 targets affected.
"Some touch spells allow you to touch multiple targets. You can touch up to 6 willing targets as part of the casting, but all targets of the spell must be touched in the same round that you finish casting the spell."
Potayto, potahto. If the consequence for an action (or inaction) is negative, it's still the consequence.
If a character searches a room, they find something. If they don't, they don't find it. The result is the consequence of their actions.
In this case, if they get on with saving the city, xx happens. If they don't, then a whole lot of yyyyyy happens. It's the consequences of them not doing anything that I'm interested in.
There's generally not a lot of description in AP's of what happens in that case.

I provided mine with the information on shops in the town listed in the Korvosa book, but for the most part my players tend to act like there's some mystic one-stop shop that sells everything. So unless you're going to make them walk from shop to shop and rp through each interaction with the merchant, I wouldn't get too mired down in the details.
I usually just tell them yes or no on whether what they are asking for is available, and tell them they just blew all all afternoon and evening when they're done.
According to their Twitter feed, it's been announced.. Return of the Runelords.
Unless all 16K+ in the city are willing to stand in line for days, and none of them are re-infected, the summoned creatures are still not a fix. Will -definitely- help though.
All that aside though, to the OP however, I would say you should read Seven Days to the Grave from the Crimson Throne AP.

Same. There's always that one creature/npc/something that you just flat out can't find/get a mini for and a simple description doesn't do it justice.
