You need a light armour to gain this card's token.
Later in the game you start with a medium armour.
Should you not have unlocked the token by then, you can choose to "Turn back" and try to sell your armour before visiting this encounter again.

Event[edit | edit source]

Your path is blocked by a river. The water is clear, but fast-flowing.
Choice:
    Attempt to cross the river.
        If you wear light armour:
            1 Huge Success:
                Your light armour makes the crossing easy and you even stop to dive for some shiny stones on the riverbed that may fetch a few coins.
                Draw 1 Gold Gain Card.
                If you already have the cards token:
                    Once on the other side of the river, you continue your journey.
                If you don't already have the cards token:
                    Once on the other side of the river, you realise that one of the stones is in fact a ring. You put it away to have it cleaned and identified later, then continue your journey.
                    Gain the card's token.
            2 Success:
                Your light armour makes the crossing relatively easy. You reach the other side, cold and wet, but unharmed.
            1 Failure:
                The water carries away a few of your provisions.
                Draw 1 Pain Card.
        If you wear medium armour:
            2 Success:
                As you swim, you notice some gleaming stones on the riverbed. If you had lighter armour, you could attempt to dive for them safely. The crossing is not easy, but you make it in one piece.
            1 Failure:
                Your medium-sized armour doesn't make the crossing easy and the current pushes you downstream. When you emerge from the water, your pack feels lighter.
                Draw 1 Pain Card.
            1 Huge Failure:
                Your medium-sized armour doesn't make the crossing easy and the current pushes you into some rocks, battering you about.
                Draw 2 Pain Cards.
        If you wear heavy armour:
            'Success:
                Your heavy armour makes the crossing difficult, but you make it to the other side in one piece.
            'Failure:
                Your heavy armour, combined with the strong current, makes the crossing very difficult.
                ???
            Huge Failure:
                The strong current pushes you into some rocks and you are battered about. Your heavy armour makes it difficult to keep your head above water.
                ???
    Turn back.
        You retrace your steps, intending to find another way.
        Return to previous tile.
