Ending an Encounter

After an appeal, successful or not, an encounter will usually reach a conclusion quickly, though not always. In some encounters, you may not make any appeal at all. Some encounters will simply give you the opportunity to show your character doing something or having a conversation with someone. Those encounters can matter just as much as one that culminates in an exciting appeal.

The encounter ends once two people have invoked the ritual phrase, “It happened at «place name».” Once that happens, you have a few things to take care of before the next player starts the next encounter.

At the end of each round, take a short break before starting the next one. When you reach the end of the last round, go to the endgame.
