Face Trader is an event which can trigger in any ? room of all three acts.


  • [Touch] Lose X HP (10% of Max HP). Gain 75 Gold.
  • [Trade] 50%: Good Face. 50%: Bad Face. (Note: The actual odds are 40% good mask, 40% bad mask, 20% a mask that does nothing.)
  • [Leave] (Nothing happens)

Mask Relics

After choosing [Trade] the player will receive one of five masks as a relic. Two of these have a positive effect, two of them are detrimental and the last one is neutral (only cosmetic effects).


Both the positive masks—Face of Cleric and Ssserpent Head—are extremely powerful if acquired in Acts 1 and 2. On the negative side: N'loth's Hungry Face remains a fairly minor penalty throughout. But by Act 3, the threat of a Gremlin Visage and the small number of remaining rooms/combats makes a roll increasingly dangerous (especially for a deck avoiding most combats). Therefore, it may be wise to gain the gold (or simply leave) in late acts, especially if your deck is reliant on Attacks.
