Fortune Table

Roll Result Description Effect
1 Misfortune Bad luck descends upon you, resulting in a minor accident. You are unhurt, but the same cannot be said of your things… Lose 1 Valuable. If you have no Valuables, lose 1 Wealth. If you have no Wealth, lose 1 piece of Gear.
2 Infection You receive a small cut from an old rusted piece of something. Your body begins work to fight off infection… Discard a Reaction card from your hand that is valid to play against Traps in the current setting. If you have no such card to discard, you suffer the following effect: (Disease 1) You are Debilitated until the end of the scenario. In future scenarios, you also take 1 damage at the start of every turn.
3 Spider Bite A venomous spider is startled by your presence. Its legs and fangs twitch… Discard an Action or Reaction card from your hand that is valid to play against Creatures in the current setting. If you have no such card to discard, suffer 1d2 Poison damage. Increase the damage dice level by 1 for every even-numbered level you have attained.
4 Sneeze An annoying bit of dust, smoke, or some other irritant wafts into your nose, bringing a sudden urge to sneeze. If this is not a stealth scenario, there is no effect. Otherwise, discard a Reaction card from your hand that is valid to play against Seekers in the current setting. If you have no such card to discard, lose 1 Stealth Token.

If you have no such card to discard, you are Immobilized until you spend either a Move or an Action to clear the condition.
7 Slowed Bad wind, rough terrain, creepy crawlies, or something of the sort slows your progress just a bit. You must act last on the next round. If multiple PCs must each act last in the same round, they may still determine their order amongst that group.
8 Dirt in the Eyes You are momentarily blinded as a result of getting something in your eyes that definitely doesn't belong there. You cannot see (and thus are Debilitated, Hindered, and Vulnerable unless you have Sightless Vision) until the end of your next turn.
