An Ominous Place

An Ominous Place

At the start of the first encounter here ask:

What frightens you about this place?

Learning this place’s name unlocks:

What do you fear?

An Unquiet Place

Spot an impending danger to gather awareness.


Some places just frighten us or creep us out. Sometimes we can tell what about them frightens us, but often we can’t really put our finger on it. The introductory question on this card doesn’t demand a clear answer. Saying that it simply has a pervasive aura that sets you on edge provides a perfectly acceptable answer, one that tells us just as much about the place as the dark, shifting shadows or strange, creaking noises you hear there.
