You really got the hang on it! I observed a fascinating flight scene near the end and an unexplicable undecisiveness at the start. She was laid siege on from the very first turn, entered the graveyard despite fear being beyond her strength and defending brilliantly there! But then she left the terrifying place again to beat the shit out of an ...Acolythe?... only to move back to the godforsaken place right afterwards? It was almost funny how much trouble fate had in stock for my heroine! I am glad she made it out alive!

[Again, i stumbled on the script. I can not make any sense out of #4 1 clue dropped on Graveyard. What did i miss? There was no apparent reason to drop a clue.]

Indeed, the Graveyard bit at the beginning was frustrating. Fortunately, Graveyard has 1 shroud and then the chaos bag was mostly in Jenny’s favour which allowed her to sweep up four cultists in the end. Jenny even had enough health and sanity left to attempt to grab the last XP point from the University that she ignored earlier.

With both her weaknesses on the board, she did more than just a good job! I am looking forward to read more!
