Setup

Objectives

Find the Precious

Before the game starts, take five playing cards from a standard pack, exactly one of which should be an Ace. Shuffle them to form the Precious Object Search Deck. If a hero on the villainous half of the table makes a successful Interact action with a piece of terrain that has not already been searched, they search the terrain: reveal the top card of the Search Deck. If the revealed card is the Ace, discard the Ace and place a Precious Object objective token in the possession of the active model. Otherwise, discard the card. At the end of the game, if there is a Precious Object token in the possession of a surviving hero: score 3 points.

Activate Contraption

Objective markers: Deploy three 30mm Switch markers: the first must be within 6” of the middle of the far board edge, the second must be within 9” of the far right-hand corner of the board, and the third must be within 9” of the far left-hand corner of the board. Each Switch marker must be deployed at least 3” from any other objective marker. Note: if you have multiple objectives that refer to Switch markers, use a single set of Switch markers shared by all objectives. A hero may interact with a switch. If successful, they may choose to activate the contraption. If all three Switch markers are successfully interacted with to activate the contraption during the same round, score 3 points and increase the threat level by 1. End Of Game Condition: The game ends at the end of the round on which this objective was scored.

Tell Us What You Know

When a hero succeeds in a Parley action against a minion that has not yet produced a Confession token, place a Confession token on that hero. During this game, Parley actions have a minimum difficulty equal to the target’s starting wounds (up to a maximum of 10). At the end of the game, for each Confession token in the possession of a surviving hero: score 1 point, up to a maximum of 3 points.
