You happen upon a group of what looks like purple fire spirits dancing around a large bonfire.
The spirits toss small bones and fragments into the fire, which brilliantly erupts each time. As you approach, the spirits all turn to you, expectantly...
You toss an offering into the bonfire.
If you offer a Curse However, the spirits aren't happy that you offered a Curse... The card fizzles a meek black smoke. You receive a... something in return.
If you offer a Basic card Nothing happens...
The spirits seem to be ignoring you now. Disappointing...
If you offer a Common or Special card The flames grow slightly brighter.
The spirits continue dancing. You feel slightly warmer from their presence..
You heal 5 HP.
If you offer an Uncommon card The flames erupt, growing significantly stronger!
The spirits dance around you excitedly, filling you with a sense of warmth.
You are healed to full HP.
If you offer a Rare card The flames burst, nearly knocking you off your feet, as the fire doubles in strength.
The spirits dance around you excitedly before merging into your form, filling you with warmth and strength.
Your Max HP increases by 10 and you are healed to full HP.


This event can be exploited for a quick healing or for a free card removal. Remember that offering a Common card still heal you for 5 HP, and removing your Basic card does not have any major downside. You can also use this event to remove a Curse, especially powerful ones like Normality or Pain, as SpiritPoop.png Spirit Poop that this event yield does not have any major gameplay effect except that it will reduce your score by 1.
