Event[edit | edit source]

As you are walking one day, a large shadow passes over you. Looking up, you see a giant eagle swooping down towards you!
Choice:
    Wait to see what the bird does.
        The bird picks you up and carries you to far-away lands.
        If you don't have the card's token already:
            After flying for a while, you see a monastery high up in the mountains. From your vantage point in the eagle's strong grip, you can just make out a rough, overgrown trail leading up to it.
            Gain card's token.
        One of the following:
            * The great bird passes over the town of Stiegal. Someone in the arena audience recognises you and a cheer goes up from the crowd! (Need to have gotten The Crucible's token.)
            * The great bird carries you over an ancient, dusty-looking maze in the desert. A huge creature stomping about the twisted corridors spots you and roars furiously. (Need to never have killed the minotaur.)
            * The great bird carries you over an ancient, dusty-looking maze in the desert. The rotting carcass of the minotaur has already been stripped down to little more than bones. (Need to have killed the minotaur.)
            * The great bird carries you over the deserts, and you see that the body of the Bandit Queen has already vanished beneath the sands.
        The wind whips furiously past you as the eagle continues to climb higher.
        Choice:
            Struggle to get free.
                2 Success:
                    With a piercing cry, the bird flings you into the empty air. Luckily, you land in a wagon full of hay.
                    Get to an adjacent tile.
                2 Failure:
                    With a piercing cry, the bird flings you into the empty air. You fall heavily through the roof of a barn, scaring some chickens.
                    Draw 1 Pain Card.
            Wait until it gets tired.
                1 Huge Success:
                    Eventually, after many hours, the eagle drops you into a small lake, in a far-away land.
                    Get to the next level.
                2 Success:
                    Eventually, after many hours, the eagle drops you into a small lake.
                    Get to a random tile.
                1 Huge Failure:
                    With a piercing cry, the bird flings you into the empty air. You bounce off the roof of a village church and fall painfully to the ground, startling a group of monks.
                    Draw 2 Pain Cards
    Hide.
        2 Success:
            With an ear-splitting screech, the bird swoops past, then flies into the distance and disappears from view.
        2 Failure:
            The massive bird swoops down and grasps you in his claws. Together, you soar up into the sky.
            Same as if picked "Wait to see what the bird does".
    Flee. (Only available if you have either Fleet Cuffs or Angel's Wing helm)
        One of the following depending on your equipment:
            * Your Fleet Cuffs gauntlets make you faster than the average human; fast enough to evade the clutches of this giant eagle.
            * Your Angel Wing helm makes you faster than the average human; fast enough to evade the clutches of this giant eagle.
            * Your Fleet Cuffs gauntlets and Angel Wing helm make you faster than the average human; fast enough to evade the clutches of this giant eagle.
