Forsaken Lore
Through the shifting sands of the desert, you spot a deranged-looking man. You try to follow him, but he abruptly disappears. You search the wind-swept landscape for any sign of him (Observation). You find the man inside a cave, examining a mural. You think you recognize Abdul Alhazred and the Nameless City (Lore - 1). If you pass, the Mad Arab returns you to your home; close this Gate. If you fail, you leave the cave, forsaken; gain a Cursed Condition. You wander in the unrelenting heat of the desert, forcing yourself to keep going (Will - 1). If you pass, you eventually find an object in the sands; gain 1 Artifact. If you fail, you collapse in despair; lose 2 Health Health and gain a Hallucinations Condition.
