Choice Text and Results

Help lay tarp

You haul out some of the tarp and clip it together with the others. It seems like it should hold pretty well.

You've earned 2 XP in Reflexes


You find that one of the tarps you were planning to connect to has a hole in it, so you end up replacing that one instead. You'd like to think it's a manufacturer's defect, but it was pretty clearly cut.

You've earned 2 XP in Perception

Hole some tarp

You tear through a tarp, leaving long satisfying rips. Well, that certainly isn't holding water.

You've earned 2 XP in Strength

Dismantle a tree

You pull at the tree. It's actually pretty sturdy for being constructed of chairs and crepe paper.

It'll probably take you quite a while to pull it down, but it's looking more disheveled than when you started.

You've earned 2 XP in Strength

Install skull pile


You find the perfect place for your pile of skulls, right at the base of one of the trees. It's pretty damned spooky.

You've earned 6 XP in Perception

Install animatronic skull

If someone has already installed an animatronic raven:


You pair up your animatronic skull with a similar raven. Nobody would expect a skull to start in on them right after the raven.

You've earned 4 XP in Perception

Or if there's already a skull pile:


You nestle your animatronic skull amid a pile of inert ones. That should give someone a proper fright.

You've earned 4 XP in Perception

Install animatronic raven

You sneak an animatronic raven into one of the trees. Should be pretty spooky.

You've earned 6 XP in Perception

Check the trees

The trees look mostly fine, thank goodness.

You've earned 2 XP in Perception

Leave them be

It's starting to look pretty spooky over here, but there's a whole other end of the ballroom to poke at.

(Walk Away)
