Event - Knowing Skull.jpg

The Knowing Skull is a rare Event found exclusively in Act 2. You encounter a talking skull that can grant many rewards, albeit for a bloody price.

You can encounter this event only if you have 12 or more HP.

Options[edit | edit source]

  • [Riches?] Obtain 90 Gold. Lose 10% of your Max HP (Minimum of 6 HP).
  • [Success?] Obtain a random Uncommon Colorless card. Lose 10% of your Max HP (Minimum of 6 HP).
  • [A Pick Me Up?] Obtain a Potion. Lose 10% of your Max HP (Minimum of 6 HP).
  • [How do I leave?] End the event. Lose 10% of your Max HP (Minimum of 6 HP).

Each time a reward is selected, the cost for that reward increases by 1 HP.

Rewards may be selected repeatedly for as much health as you are willing to spend. The event will not end until [How do I leave?] is selected.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Encounter
You find yourself in an old, decorated chamber. In the center of the room, a large skull sits atop an ornate pedestal. As you approach, the skull bursts into flames and turns to face you.
"WHAT IS IT YOU SEEK? WHAT IS IT YOU OFFER?"
In sync with its final words, the door behind you slams shut.
Riches?
"YOU MORTALS NEVER CHANGE. IT IS DONE."
Gold rains down on you.
Success?
"PERHAPS THIS WILL HELP?"
You obtain a card.
A Pick Me Up?
"DRINK UP!"
You obtain a potion.
How do I leave?
"BEHIND YOU, MORTAL."
You peek behind the skull. Surely enough, there is a door.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • With BloodyIdol.png Bloody Idol relic, choosing the [Riches] option will grant you 5 HP of healing to heavily offset the damage.
  • TungstenRod.png Tungsten Rod relic reduces the HP cost of each reward by 1 HP. The cost for each reward still increases each time it is selected.
