This is my findings based on playing Carolyn at 2 and 3 player a fair bit. I, like most, naturally tried the level 0 healing horror cards like First Aid, Liquid Courage and Clarity of Mind. I don't like any of them.
The other big surprise is I'm not playing Forbidden Knowledge. It just doesn't do enough on its own. We play Peter Sylvestre so that we can soak other people's horror tests via "Let me handle this!" or heal our damage with Painkillers. The random horror drip damage that happens throughout a scenario makes Peter useful enough.
- First Aid (3)
- Kerosene (1)
- Stick to the Plan (6)
- Emergency Cache (3) (works with Painkillers, Fingerprint Kit and can be put on Stick to the Plan)
- Brother Xavier (1)
- Extra Ammunition (1)/Custom Ammunition (3)
There's plenty of room to explore different paths for the upgrades. I won't pretend like I have all that figured out. There's also something to be said for not playing Shrivelling which dramatically changes the deck. I've also found that Peter Sylvestre himself isn't necessarily essential either and opens up a number of other interesting/cheaper cost routes. Finally, if you're doing this on the core campaign, I'd avoid the Shrewd Analysis/Ancient Stone path in favor of Clarity of Mind (3). You just don't have time to do the stone path.
Overall, just want to share what I think many will see as an unconventional starting Carolyn deck that I've found extremely solid.
