This guide is meant to be a reference about what lies behind the “investigate” or “modify deck” and other encounters.

It’s not made to tell you where to go but to allow you to make the best decision possible. Special fights, healing, XP & levelling, equipment, deck modifying, safe paths and more are covered.

 
 

Introduction

 
Once again, this guide isn’t made to tell you where to go since you’re the only person knowing if your party is healthy and ready for combat or about to die. 
 
It simply sets the expectations for the encounters, even if some already have full description. 
 
So whenever you see something new or don’t remember the implications, just look here. 
 
You will find the cards in the categories to which they belong. For example, cards that explicitly say how they affect the amount of Florins you have (+ or -) will the found in the Money section while cards that can affect that amount after you investigate will be found in the Investigate section. 
 
You can always use Ctrl + F, type the card name then press Enter to go quickly to a specific one. 
 
** Note that when I list multiple options, I mean that you can chose between multiple outcomes for the resolution of a specific encounter, it’s not different versions of that encounter.** 
 
The guide is still la work in progress so I’ll add and modify as the game gets updated and I find more.
